Hartley Cottage 10 mins walk to beach.

 What a great place. Well equipped and good location. It felt very comfortable and the fully fenced section would make it great for children. Only suggestion I would make is to install insect screens on at least one window in each room. The weather was a real scorcher when we were there but couldn't leave the windows open at night due to mozzies. Wouldn't put us off though, will definitely book again.

 Close enough to beautiful beach, ideal place to explore the island from of you have a car or are super fit with bikes. Immaculately clean and newly renovated. 

Hartley Cottage 10 mins walk to beach.

 Great location, very well looked after, nice property, everything provided. Onetanga is a fantastic place to go. Lovely beach, nice bush walks, good beach bar and good vine too. Very remote and quite, ideal for a „good time out“.
