What a heavenly place!! This is when the word ‘perfection’ comes to life. Though ‘perfection’ would not do it justice. Split Apple goes far beyond it.
The location, the house itself, the very engaging and charming hosts, the stunningly beautiful art work.. (even the tea !!) was out of this world.
Going through the house I felt Zen, though quite emotional at the same time by so much beauty.
This is no glitter and glamour but pure elegance with a very subtle underlayer of luxury. This is definitely a very rare jewel!

On my recent trip to New Zealand, I was lucky enough to spend some time at the fabulous boutique hotel, The Boatshed on beautiful Waiheke Island. I have been sending my clients here for years, and they always came back raving! After having been able to experience it myself, I know exactly why! The setting is fantastic. Overlooking a beautiful beach, you really can’t beat the views. The rooms themselves are inviting and warm and the nautical theme can be found in every last wonderful detail.
Jonathan, your lovely host while at the hotel, has even expanded by adding in two bungalow type rooms. They are meant to represent the batch homes that many Kiwis remember from their childhood. However, these new creations exude style and comfort. Jonathan has also expanded his lovely garden, which provides many ingredients to The Boatshed’s fantastic gourmet meals. Keep on the look out for the latest coming attraction: He soon plans to add a vintage caravan and turn it into a game room for his guests to enjoy!
Thanks again to the lovely ladies Navigate Oceania for making this visit possible!
