Perched at the top of Tawa Street, looking out over sun drenched Little Oneroa bay was a great start. These modern, clean units had everything you need and with little traffic in the vicinity are just so quiet. Our host, Jo really looked after us and for first time visitors to the Island her guidance was spot on. Make sure... More

These apartments are lovely - light, modern, well appointed, yet homely and have everything you need for an island getaway. You are 10 minutes walk from Oneroa (the main town) and the owner provides a list of what to eat where - as well as which restaurants require bookings. The walk is easyish - some up hill, but not too... More

We arrived early from Melbourne and had organised to drop our luggage then wander into town. Jo, the owner, was extremely helpful, even drove us into Oneroa and arranged to pick us up when the room was ready. We had a stunning room with views out to the ocean. Really enjoyed a very relaxing long weekend, easy walk down to... More

Our room was was just great, especially clean and private. We had just booked a few days prior, so we missed out on rooms with beautiful views. Our view and garden was green and enclosed; our studio was so comfortable and friendly. Parking was easy and you can really use a car to visit the Sculpture garden, wineries and travel... More

Before I had even checked in to Watermark, Jo the owner was already impressing me with her hospitality. I received a special discount for the local ferry service. I had previously booked a night prior at a different location and received word that Jo would collect me from there so I didn't have to lug my bag up the hill.... More

Great place to get away. We just walked into town less than 10 minutes and caught bus from at the bottom of the road so great place for us.

So glad we ended our holiday by staying here....couldn't ask for a better place to recharge before a long flight home. We loved the cozy seating areas and it feels like home! Watermark is a quick walk into town and to the beach. Jo really has her guest's needs in mind so thank you for making us feel so welcome.

We stayed on Waiheke for 1 night at Watermark. Jo was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location is perfect, walking distance to Oneroa and easily accessible to many wineries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!
