Beach, sun and sand!

Reminiscent of times gone by, Sunshine Cottage by the Sea is a cherished family bach situated steps from Onetangi beach.  Pack up the kids, boogie boards & your favourite novel and prepare yourselves for a good old fashioned beach holiday.

The bach, originally built in the 20's, has lovely wooden floors, stunning views of the beach, an open plan living/kitchen area and a bedroom wing in the main house.   A studio/sleepout for two and the bathroom are access externally off the back deck.

Sunshine Cottage is situated on the eastern end of Onetangi beach with 2.5 kilometres of white sand and charming seaside cafes.  The vineyards  and restaurants of the "vineyard valley" including Miro/Casita Miro, Obsidian, Stonyridge, Te Motu and Wild on Waiheke are all within easy reach.  The property is close to the golf course, Countdown supermarket, Saturday farmer's market and many other Waiheke attractions.

Bed configuration: Bedroom 1 - double bed and built in bunk beds (separated by a wall), Bedroom 2 (external access) - double bed.

  • We came away for a long weekend with kids (3) and the space was perfect! Great to be right by the sea. So cute to stay in a kiwi style Bach too!
