The best kept secret in the NZ - 11 out of 10!!

Pros: Everything, from the decor, showerhead, sunset veiwing in the spa, breakfast, comfortable bed to the very warm welcome! It was an incredible holiday!!
Cons: Honestly, nothing - my sister and I could not fault it.
Location: - Wineries - EcoZip (great fun)! - Bike hire (manual & motorised) - Wonderful dining options - Various outdoor activities - Close to Auckland CBD
From the warm welcome when we first arrived to the views of pure paradise that took our breath away; our stay here most definitely exceeded expectations! Andy & Jenny are the most gracious hosts who went over and above, to make our stay exceptional. They are the perfect blend of being helpful and attentive, while simultaneously keeping their distance and giving you space to enjoy the oasis they have created together. What we LOVED and will never forget: - Each night we hopped in the spa and watched the sunset over the ocean - the beauty is indescribable. - One of my favourite 'inside things' is the shower head, which had multiple functions - the "rain" setting providing the most relaxing shower I have ever experienced. - My sister is a qualified interior designer and was blown away by the styling and decor of our room. - The bus stop is only 2 short streets away and takes you almost anywhere you want to go on the island. I am NOT a public transport person (mainly because of my poor sense of direction), and even this was an enjoyable experience, as all the locals on the bus were so helpful and gave my sister and I tips on what to see & easy-to-follow directions. I am sure I have missed things, however our stay here was absolutely and entirely faultless. We loved it so much, we have planned to create a birthday trip for our dad just so we can return to the Enclosure Bay suites! The photos don't even come close to doing it justice - it's a must see, must stay!

Lovely place, lovely hosts

We came here for the first night of our honeymoon. The views were beautiful and the room was clean and well presented. The hosts Andy and Jenny were so helpful and lovely to deal with.

Great location, views and hosts

A beautiful location with stunning views out to the bays and islands. Nothing was a problem for our hosts as they picked us up from the ferry and organised bookings for us. a marvellous weekend all around, but needed longer! Highly recommend!
