Fodor's Expert Review The Boatshed

Tawa and Huia Sts.

If you feel like staying in a "lighthouse" without being responsible for the ships, the two-story turret suite at The Boatshed may be the place for you, though there are other options, and dinner can be a well-earned add-on. Up a spiral staircase glass doors open to a wraparound deck with views to Oneroa Bay. A long central room leads to a sail-covered deck and opens onto a cozy sunken lounge. In the Bridge Room, bi-fold windows frame a view of the bay. Helicopter transport to and from the Boatshed can be arranged.
