  • We had a great stay at the Funky Grasshopper & Cicada

    We had a great stay at the Funky Grasshopper & Cicada. Nice tidy and well equipped house, short stroll to Onetangi beach which has a couple of good cafe's/restaurants/bars. Would definitely stay again.

    Great views& location, lovely property, well maintained and clean. All the mod cons - even a home theatre system. We had a lovely relaxing time and would highly recommend

  • This is a great rental property in a beautiful location

    This is a great rental property in a beautiful location. However, just two points to add: given the decor and furniture, it is not very suitable for small children and is "todler safe" only with a lot of care and attention; and the "short stroll" down to Onetangi beach involves almost 200 steep steps and returning is very hard work.
