Wai o Taiki Bay is a small Auckland suburb bordering Glen Innes, Glendowie and the Tamaki River estuary. Its name is based on the original name of the Tamaki River, Te Wai o Taiki, meaning "The Waters of Taiki". The name Taiki is a shortened form of Taikehu, the name of an ancestor of Ngāi Tai.[1]

The suburb contains a mix of state houses and architecturally designed houses constructed by developers.[2][3]
