A perfect start for our visit to NZ. Peaceful and beautiful it was a great way to recoup a bit from a long and delayed flight from the States. You know you have great hosts when you are greeted at the ferry landing at 11:00 at night.

Our suite was modern and airy with all conveniences from a Nespresso maker to a balcony with great views . Andy and Jen provided local tips and delicious full breakfasts and made us feel very special.

Room Tip: You can’t go wrong with your choice of room. It’s very quiet and private.

I stayed here with my husband last weekend and had a lovely time. The accommodation is excellent, very comfortable and private with terrific views over Enclosure Bay and views towards Oneroa and Palm Beach. The spa is a treat. You have a variety of choices for breakfast and Andy is extremely helpful and knowledgable with anything you may wish to see or do in Waiheke. The wineries are fabulous. We had our own car but you could easily stay here without a car. Highly recommend this place.

We are a couple of Aucklanders looking for a weekend away and stayed with Andy at Enclosure Bay. We couldn't have been happier. The accommodation is gorgeous, impeccably maintained with a stunning outlook and wide sea views. The service from Andy was just wonderful. He picked us up and dropped us off at the ferry, allowed us to use the car so we could get around and served a lovely breakfast each morning in the room. A delightful guy who adds a friendly warmth to your stay. All up, Enclosure Bay is a truly fabulous place to hang out.

This is an amazing property to enjoy Waiheke island. The accommodations were spectacular with a great views of the ocean, overlooking the island as well as a great amount of privacy. We were able to check-in early and were upgraded to a suit – a very nice touch. Everything about the house is custom made, modern and very stylish. One of the few times we though that the pictures on the website do not do it justice
I cannot say enough about the service from the hosts, we needed to do laundry after travel but only stayed a single day, the washing machine is in the suite, and hosts offered to dry the laundry for us. The continental breakfast included was a great way to start the day.
This was our first visit to Waiheke island, and it was during the week so not a lot of people especially during shoulder season. The island is really foodie as we found all places that we ate to be very very good. The nature walks are amazing and we found some great wineries. Highly recommended as a stop-over from Auckland for a night or two or a short break.

The views are spectacular, the rooms are excellent, everything well thought out, and the owners are great hosts. We stayed in the Great Barrier Suite that was comfortable in every way. We were able to see all three accommodations and can recommend any of them.
Do yourself a favor and spend some time at Enclosure Bay!

We were looking for a relaxing weekend escape and found Enclosure Bay to be absolute luxury in the most beautiful setting. We loved the space and comfort of the rooms and were able to completely wind down. Andy was always happy to help with any questions we had or suggestions for the best things to do in our limited time. Don't hesitate to use Enclosure Bay for your next great escape.

I stayed at Enclosure Bay twice while on a trip in March 2017 to Waiheke, once in the Waiheke Suite, and the second visit, in the Little Barrier Room. Both rooms were utterly delightful, spacious and welcoming, with the most amazing views. The hosts, Andy and Jenny, are the friendliest, most helpful and accommodating people I think I have ever met. Not only was their home stunningly beautiful and clean, but their hospitality was boundless. I was pampered beyond all extremes and made to feel like an honored guest in this lovely and delightful B&B. Breakfasts were delicious, a variety of wines and other beverages are available, and plenty of beautiful treks await just at the end of their driveway. A reserve exists just below the road the home is located upon, and you can hear all sorts of cool insect and bird songs. Andy and Jenny were so helpful with rides, dinner reservations, recommendations for what to do - I could not speak more highly of them. I cannot wait to get back to this peaceful oasis.

Room Tip: I think all of the rooms are beautiful - the suites have a bit more room.
