Grasshopper: Beauty and the Beach, Onetangi

 Great house and property owners 

Blue Gum Cottage. Your country retreat

 The Cottage is a magical place, very comfortable and has everything you need. Highly recommend to anyone in need of a relaxing few days away. 

Apartment 4 on Conical

 Close to shops. Nice and clean. Very nice place to stay. 

Honey Fields Cottage, a little piece of paradise!

 The cottage is lovely -a gorgeous outlook and full of homely touches like fresh flowers, coffee, and fruit out of the orchard. The bed is really comfortable and there is everything you need. We loved the cottage and so did our 2 girls who also loved the hammock and swing and the lawn. There was lots to do in Katikati but we also enjoyed just sitting on the deck in the sun. We loved our weekend here and can't wait to come back. 

Whisper Cottage,Sun, Sea Views,Spa Pool & 4wd
