The Oyster Inn is the new gem of Waiheke Island - a seafood restaurant, bar, private room, beach shop, take-away and small luxury boutique accommodation rolled into one.

The Oyster Inn's bar is the perfect island hub to meet and mingle, and to wash down an oyster (or two). And no wonder, as it's so easy to wander up from Oneroa Beach to share a pitcher of homemade sangria or home-made lemonade. They also serve a great, curated edit of the island's best wine, as well as local and regional artisan beers. Whether soaking in the view of the shimmering bay in summer or cozied up on the cane sofa by the wood-burning stove in winter, the bar at the Oyster Inn is place to let the world go by.

Each air-conditioned room is fitted with wooden flooring and wooden furniture. Rooms boast free Wi-Fi, satellite flat-screen TV and DVD player. All room include a minibar, fridge and a safe. Free toiletries, bathrobes and hairdryer are also provided.

Open all day, the on-site restaurant and bar serves traditional New Zealand dishes using products sourced from local ecological farms. A continental breakfast is also included in the rate.

Ideally located, the Oyster Inn is 8 minutes’ drive from Waiheke Island-Half Moon Bay Car Ferry and just 2 minutes’ drive from central Oneroa, and a short 3 minutes from the beach.
