Fabulous weekend at Enclosure Bay. More like a Boutique hotel than a Bed & Breakfast! Andy & Jenny made it extra special helping with great restaurant & winery recommendations and a lift or two. Spotless, fully kitted out including Nespresso machine, great views and super friendly. Would definitely return.

I wish I could have spent longer than the three days I had scheduled on Waiheke. The island is beautiful, but my time there was enhanced by the wonderful setting of Enclosure Bay. My 'room at the top' had a double aspect looking out over the lovely bays, azure sea and lush vegetation. It was very comfortable with the added...

We stayed at Enclosure Bay for the last two nights of our trip to New Zealand. It was absolutely wonderful --glorious views, very comfortable room and friendly hosts. Couldn't recommend highly enough. The owner was very helpful in suggesting places to visit and restaurants to eat in and it was a perfect end to a great holiday

Very friendly welcoming, perfect view, extremely clean and tidy room delivered everything it promised! Breakfast was great, took taxi into Palm Beach for Fish & Chips which were very tasty! Bit of a hill to walk up but the views well worth the walk

Wow! What a wonderful stay at Enclosure Bay. From the time of booking, Andy & team were nothing short of amazing. From accommodating some additional family members to helping us navigate the ferry system, the experience was so friendly and personable (without ever feeling pretentious). You feel at home! Simply put, the rooms are spectacular. Amazing views, well-appointed, and so...

Stayed for five wonderful days over the new year. Andy and Jenny could not have been better hosts, from collecting us off the ferry , booking lovely restaurants and helping at every stage of our stay made it very special. The views and island wines are a must see and sample.

Perfect for some quiet time with beautiful views from your private balcony. We had two nights here to start our honeymoon and we instantly felt relaxed when we arrived.

Our visit to Enclosure Bay capped off our magnificent vacation in New Zealand. The view from Andy and Jenny's intimate little gold mine in the hills of Oneroa did literally take our breath away.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the beautiful, northern coastline of Waiheke Island, between Little Oneroa and Palm Beach, Enclosure Bay is a modern, architecturally designed, Small Hotel / Bed and Breakfast. We have two one bedroom suites and a King bedded room – all with private decks, air conditioning and facilities you would expect. Located just a 35 minute, ferry ride from downtown Auckland, (a few minutes longer on the car ferry), Waiheke Island is a tranquil, beautiful jewel in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf. A ten minute drive from the ferry terminal at Matiatia will bring you to Enclosure Bay. Waiheke is renowned for its beautiful beaches and scenery, its vineyards, olive groves and native reserves with great walking tracks. The island is justly proud of its many excellent restaurants and cafes. Enclosure Bay is the ideal haven, where for a while, you can exchange the ‘every day’, for something special. Perfect for a honeymoon or anniversary celebration; for luxury, weekend breaks or just some timely R & R. We enjoy a wonderful setting, capturing the sun all day and providing panoramic views of the Hauraki Gulf and its islands. Uninterrupted views out as far as Great Barrier Island and Coromandel Peninsula to the east, Rakino Island, Little Barrier Island and the Noises to the north and the setting sun behind Rangitoto to the west. Your privacy and opportunity to take it easy, refresh and restore, are our priorities. So come to Enclosure Bay, relax, enjoy our ‘special place’ and watch the varied moods and colours of the Hauraki Gulf and its islands. ... more   less
