A cozy hostel in the island of Waiheke, 35 minute by ferry ride from Auckland, New Zealand has become a hotspot in the region since last year that the doors opened to the public. The Oyster Inn came to make the difference! The owners, Andrew Glenn and Jonathan Rutherfurd Best, originated from the region, working in the fashion industry in London, decided to channel their creativity in designing a guesthouse, which has a restaurant, a bar and a clothing store.
A yellow vintage van greets visitors to the island’s jetty and takes you in a few minute drive away in a renovated building that once housed the offices of the local newspaper. The unit features three spacious rooms, which are dominated by white tones and the use of wood. Colorful rugs and pillows give a pleasant touch to the space that has been created with the sole purpose of tranquility and relaxation of guests.
The restaurant and bar serve from homemade lemonade and cocktails, to clam chowder and all kinds of fresh fish and seafood, supplied daily by the nearby sea fishermen. The elevated terrace offers spectacular views of the bay. Guests can also visit the clothing store and buy the necessities for their stay. Prices start from 172 euros for a double room per night.
