Quintessential Kiwi Bach on the Waters Edge

 a real bach at a wonderful location... one of the few left on the beach at Onetangi 

Hartley Cottage 10 mins walk to beach.

 Great location and immaculately clean and tidy. Only a 5 minute walk down to the beach and beach front cafes. Nice thoughtful extras, chocolates on arrival, lots of beach gear for the kids, beach towels and loved the aircon in the living area at the end of a hot day! The fenced backyard was great for the kids to run around in. Would definitely stay here again!
