The Boatshed is a chic, luxurious, Waiheke hotel, located just above the sun-drenched bay and white sandy beaches of Oneroa. This small, hip, luxury hotel boasts the true sense of casual relaxation and refined elegance, in an atmosphere which works in perfect harmony with its seaside location. Designer luxury hotel suites, each totally private with panoramic ocean views, and private all day dining for hotel guests, make the Boatshed one of the most beautifully designed properties on the island. The Boatshed started as the small Waiheke holiday cottage of designer David Scott; his dream of one day sharing this special place was realized with its perfectly executed transformation to what is now, one of New Zealand's best loved small luxury hotels. The Boatshed luxury boutique hotel is a 35 minute ferry or 10 minutes helicopter ride from Auckland. The local Oneroa shopping markets and beach are a five minute stroll away.
