Kingfisher Cottage, Coastal and family friendly. Forty minutes from Kerikeri, just north of the Bay of Islands.

Tucked into a native kiwi-zone ( yes we hear them most nights). Watch the sunrise over the bay from the comfort of your superking bed or relax on the outdoor beanbags. Lovely indoor/outdoor living with large sliding doors opening onto an expansive deck. This character filled cottage has - freeview satellite tv, microwave, dishwasher etc., plus a well stocked bookcase and plenty of boardgames and childrens toys.

Beautiful safe sandy beaches so close and great boat launching within easy reach. Excellent diving and fishing all minutes away. Whangaroa Harbour is just over the hill and Kauri Cliffs Golf course 20 minutes down the road, also handy to Whangaroa Golf course. Kerikeri 40 minutes away with excellent amenities - restaurants, cafes, great shopping, two large supermarkets, movie theatre, airport etc.

Dive the Rainbow Warrior wreck at Cavalli Islands (within sight of the cottage), take an easy day trip to Cape Reinga or have an evening meal at the famous Mangonui Fishshop over the water at Mangonui.

  • The cottage is very well set up, with an absolutely breath-taking view...

    The cottage is very well set up, with an absolutely breath-taking view out to sea and the Cavalli islands. Although we were there in peak holiday season it was wonderfully peaceful and extremely relaxing. There are many lovely beaches nearby, and some towns with good local produce and marvellous seafood.

  • Main bedroom, lounge and deck have superb views over the Cavelli Islands

    Main bedroom, lounge and deck have superb views over the Cavelli Islands. We loved Wainui Beach just a few minutes down the road and with a bird of prey circling and an owl on the pergola one night it's great for bird watchers.
