The Boatshed

Waiheke Island, New Zealand

The Boatshed is located on the beautiful Waiheke Island, just 35 minutes by ferry from Auckland, and offers luxury accommodations in a relaxed island setting. Inspired by the early 1900s boat sheds that scatter the shores of New Zealand, the property's interior style reflects the nautical theme and provides panoramic ocean views from every guest suite.

Each room is bright and sunny and includes well-chosen artwork with soaring timber ceilings and louvred shutters that peek onto the private garden and the ocean beyond. All guests are provided with full beach gear to explore the island or is welcomed to curl up in front of the common fireplace with a good book from the library. In the evening, you can take a gentle stroll to the island village where you will find a handful of boutique restaurants and bars.


The warmth and welcome of The Boatshed will make you feel instantly relaxed, and the hosting and accommodation are top quality.
