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.

    We had such a brilliant stay in this bach, it is very well equipped and has amazing views. We would definitely stay here again if we came back to the area. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway!

    Incredible unobstructed views of Cavalli Islands, wonderful location with very short drive to plethora of gorgeous beaches. Ultimate privacy, could hear kiwi at night, lovely and dark for amazing sleep. Comfortable bed, fabulous outdoor beanbags (going to buy our own now), great DVD and book collection. We enjoyed 9 glorious days of stunning weather setting up at a different beach each day (favourite Tauranga) for our babymoon and will most certainly be back. Thanks for a wonderful holiday :)

  • Lovely wee kiwi Bach in a beautiful quiet location with wonderful views

    Lovely wee kiwi Bach in a beautiful quiet location with wonderful views. My husband enjoyed bouncing on the trampoline and is thinking of entering the Olympics. Very dark at night and lots of stars to look at overhead. Take insect repellant. Really enjoyed our stay.
