Boatshed Review

In the Lighthouse, a two-story turret suite with a spiral staircase, the glass doors of its dayroom fold open onto a wraparound deck overlooking the golden sands of Oneroa Bay, where boats moor and the swimming is great. From the bedroom on the first floor the view is equally spectacular. A long central room, with doors onto the sail-covered deck, divides this boutique hotel and opens onto a cozy sunken lounge. In the Bridge Room, up a flight of stairs, bifold windows off the sunporch frame a view of the bay. If you go for one of the three Boatshed Rooms, leave the louvered doors to your private deck open for fresh sea air as you sleep. Owner Jonathan Scott, a former chef, prepares dinners by arrangement. Helicopter transport to and from the Boatshed can be arranged.
