cute cottage, cosy and affordable

 Simple place -- everything you need, and not far from town (a 2-minute drive). 

Prime beachfront position on Waiheke Island.

 Right on the sea front with two bar /restaurants two minutes away. Big property with a couple of decks, BBQ, hot tub, and well equipped

 Great central location & a lovely homely Bach! 

Stunning views of Mill Bay

 Lovely location with great view. The property was immaculate and the owners catered for our every need. Clean, fresh, modern, comfortable beds, great shower and very welcoming. A real gem and great value for money. :-). Sue 

Classy cottage amongst the grapevines

 Perfect setting in the vines and away from most of civilisation. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and had a well set up kitchen with plenty of breakfast provisions and other things that you may need if you are doing a bit of cooking. Only thing that would have helped is bug screens on the window to keep the nasties out when you don;t want to put the aircon on.

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!
