10/10 recommend staying at the Waterfront Lodge in Waiheke! From the pickup/drop off at the ferry terminal, to the delicious breakfasts included, wonderful rooms with a view, and the amenities, it is simply wonderful. Great location, walking distance to the main strip and beaches, rent one of their e-bikes or cars to explore the rest of the island. Pip & Andy are the most wonderful hosts!

Heaven We had two wonderful restful days here. Pip and Andy are generous hosts, from collecting us from the ferry, to cooking wonderful breakfasts and providing excellent recommendations for sight seeing, food and even for other places to see in NZ. Our room was spacious, looked out to shallow bay and was more than fully equipped and stocked. Spotlessly clean. We took the restaurant package with taxis provided to lovely restaurant 20 minutes away. The town of Oneroa is 15-20 minutes stroll from the lodge making dinner on night two also very easy. I could go on but suffice to say if you book here your expectations will be met and exceeded.

What a wonderful place to stay on Waiheke Island! Luxury boutique accommodations with the coziness of a B&B, but with a ton of privacy! Pip and Andy are wonderful hosts and took care of our every need, and the location is perfect to the car ferry, wineries and the largest town of Oneroa! Great experience and highly recommend!

Wonderful! Island life at its best 🏝️ This place is wonderful, Pip and Andy make it even better! From the welcome, to the views, the wine, and the food, everything is perfectly done. Pip fixes a breakfast straight from a gourmet kitchen. Andy is a great host and guide, and has set the standard for garage gym amenities and views. The available bicycles open a whole new option to see the island. We hope to come back again someday, it’s amazing!

You simply have to come here. Pip and Andy are fantastic hosts and there accommodation is fantastic. The rooms are spacious and uber clean. Pip and her team are very helpful with local information and can help with transit connections. We hired a car through them which was really convenient. The prepared breakfast is one of the best you likely ever experience. It certainly was for us. They will help you plan a fantastic experience while on this beautiful island.

Beautiful lodge on the water, excellent service and breakfast. We booked our room as we got on the ferry and called the car service at the lodge for the free ride to the lodge. Andy was at the ferry when we arrived from Auckland. Wonderful. Our room was perfect with a view of Black Pool Bay. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful. Other guest we spoke with felt the same. Breakfast was wonderful and free! We can’t say enough good things about the lodge.

Fabulous place - highly recommended! What a wonderful place! Andy and Pip are superb hosts. The rooms are beautiful - huge and light and airy with all sorts of thoughtful touches. The breakfasts were delicious with great fresh fruit and hot dishes. A fabulous start to our New Zealand adventure and we wished we could have stayed longer!

Great lodge on Waiheke Island. Can’t say much more than what all the other reviewers have said. Andy and Pip are wonderful and charming and make every effort to make sure your visit is superb. They have every amenity you could want to enjoy Waiheke on land and water. The breakfasts are delicious and plentiful and Andy is a superb barista. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated with a magnificent water view. A perfect start to our New Zealand adventure!

Pip and Andy were the consummate hosts. Andy picked us up at the ferry and shuttled us to their property, which is situated on a quiet nook on Huruhi Bay. They pay attention to every detail, and their hospitality and generosity is infectious. We kayaked and rode bicycles around the island, and we even rented their car for a drive to the eastern coast of Waiheke prior to our departure. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced, bespoke destination that is walking distance from the primary shopping/dining area and situated in a quiet, relaxed environment, look no further than Waiheke Waterfront Lodge.

Pip and Andy are superb hosts. They are warm, friendly and extremly helpful. Our breakfasts were delicious and special mention to Andys coffee making skills.WWL is a beautiful place to stay with a good central location to shops and beaches. The e-bikes were fantastic and it was great to have a soak in the spa after a long day of sight seeing. Can't recommend WWL highly enough, luxary at its very best!

Andy and Pip were amazing hosts, and my wife and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary as a special surprise treat. From being collected form the Ferry, to the amazing breakfasts, to the easy borrow of fab electric bikes this place has everything. The little touches were great too - honesty bar, nibbles and drinks in the room, just made it feel luxurious, but also very homely. Really recommend this place. The whole experience and beautiful sunshine we had for 4 days made it like a beautiful getaway. Thanks Andy and Pip we'll be back. Steve & Bridgette

We stayed here on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. From the moment Andy picked us up from the ferry terminal to when we left in the early morning with Pip’s takeaway breakfast sandwiches, we loved our stay. Easy walk to shops and restaurants, and we used their e-bikes to get to restaurants and some vineyards. The hot tub was perfect for fall weather. The quality of the gym they built far exceeds the vast majority of gyms in hotels. If you get the chance, stay here if you come to Waiheke.

Pip and Andy did a great job making my wife and I feel welcome on our honeymoon. Beautiful, clean rooms with abundant space and a great little indoor sitting area to look at the bay. Breakfast was as good as going out to any cafe and dietary restrictions are considered. Their E-bikes were a perfect way to see the Western side of Waiheke Island and made for a great day. We also indulged in their in-room massage which was incredibly convenient and relaxing. I would recommend this Lodge to anyone looking to step up their accommodations on the island.

Fantastische kamer met uitzicht op zee en heerlijk bedden. De douche is super groot. Alles was top verzorgd. Pip maakt van het ontbijt echt iets speciaals. We hebben zelden zo’n goed ontbijt gehad. Je kon zien dat het met veel liefde was bereid. Pip en Andy doen er alles aan om het je naar de zin te maken. Zo heeft Pip ons naar de golfbaan gereden en Andy ons opgehaald van de Ferry en kwamen ze met goede tips voor een dagje uit. Zeker een aanrader!
