31 Shelly Beach Road , Waiheke Island, Neuseeland

GETTING TO WAIHEKE: Waiheke Island is a 35-40 minute ferry ride from the Auckland CBD via Fullers360 or Island Direct passenger ferries, or about an hour via Sealink car ferry. Tickets can be pre-purchased online or at the Downtown Ferry Terminal. For the busiest peak months (December thru January) we recommend pre-booking your tickets to avoid queues and be sure to arrive early for your ideal crossing.

There are public transport buses to meet almost all passenger ferries which can be boarded just outside the terminal building at Matiatia. Cash is not accepted on the bus so you will need to purchase an AT HOP Card at the Downtown Ferry Terminal (Auckland CBD) or Waiheke-side at the Fullers 360 ticket office (Matiatia Ferry Terminal). Board the 50A or 50B bus to Onetangi and request to be dropped at the Shelly Beach Road stop (Stop ID 1183). The ride to the bus stop is approximately 15-20 minutes and the easy walk to our property is five minutes from there.

Fullers360 operates a special service called the Hop-On Hop-Off Explorer bus that offers tours and daily passes for unlimited travel to specific island destinations, predominantly the vineyards. This is a sightseeing bus (and is priced as such): it not meant as a once off ride to get to Boatsheds on the Bay. If visiting multiple vineyards with ease is on your trip's agenda, please look into purchasing a Hop-On Hop-Off pass before you arrive via the Fullers360 website. If you are planning to use the Hop-On Hop-Off service, Boatsheds on the Bay is close to stops #3 and #13 on Shelly Beach Road near Goldie Vineyard.

TRANSPORT VIA TAXI: Private taxis are readily available at most hours in the car park taxi rank outside Matiatia Ferry Terminal. We personally recommend WaiCab taxis (0800924222) and the price as of 2023 is around $25.00 NZD (subject to change). The ride is approximately 10 minutes. Please note that Uber and Lyft do not provide service on the island.

DRIVING FROM KENNEDY POINT (SEALINK CAR FERRY): If you're bringing a car (or renting one on-island), one car park per boatshed or apartment is available free of charge on our property. Boatsheds on the Bay is an easy 5 minute drive from the Kennedy Point Ferry Terminal via Donald Bruce Road. Turn right at the roundabout onto Causeway Road, then right onto Shelly Beach Road. Our property will be on the left.
