Private Luxury Accommodation for Two

 What's not to LOVE about this location. Taranaki at it's BEST - An AMAZING place to stay, so modern. We enjoyed the views (mountain, countryside and sea). As it was set on a farm land it was so peaceful and private .... we will definitely be staying again...!

 The property was well equipped for a great relaxing and 'waterfront' holiday. Amazing location, with views that make is challenging to leave. Whatever the weather this place was the perfect place fro a family holiday with lots of adventure at your doorstep.

Peaceful and Private with Stunning Rural Views

 Kingfisher Cottage is convenient to Tauranga and the nearby beaches, yet tucked away in a quiet setting with gorgeous views of the Wairoa River valley. So peaceful and relaxing; we were completely at ease. Furnishings and finishes were really beautiful, and it felt like we were staying in a much-loved guest cottage rather than a bland, tired rental unit. It had many homey touches (cozy pillows and throws) and a well-equipped kitchen and BBQ grill for cooking. Loved it!
