“Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed April 18, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in 'Funky Cicada' bach. It was clean, Tidy and so close to everything. Close to bus stops and Onetangi beach which was just a 5 min stroll on foot. Private and had everything we needed. So happy and will visit again :)

“Neat Kiwi Batch”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Perfect place to stay to get away from the hussle and bussle of Auckland city for a couple of days. Felt like a true kiwi batch with style! Very clean and tidy. Excellent views looking over a "valley" and very close to the beach where we managed to see dolphins.

If i was to pick just one flaw it would be that there was no indoor sink - but that was no major. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.

Will definitely book here again in the near future :)

“Gorgeous little cottage”
Reviewed August 20, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Funky Cicada was the perfect place for us to stay as a couple. Walking distance to the bus route and Onetangi Beach. Lovely and cosy even in the middle of winter when it was rainy and stormy outside. We'd love to revisit in summer and make use of the outdoor entertaining space!

“Great place for a weekend getaway”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A lovely little studio bach which was perfect for our weekend getaway. We had never been to Onetangi before, and the nearby beach is lovely.
Hosts were super helpful- sent us emails with things to do in the area.
Bach was perfectly clean and had everything we needed.

One thing to note is there are no supermarkets in Onetangi so you need to bring food or head out to one of the great little bar/restaurants. Also nice takeaways with great pizza just 5 min walk from the bach.

Really good price, great spot and helpful hosts. Thank you!

Liked best: Property was exactly what it said it was- no trick photography!
Liked least: With only a couple days we probably could have used a car- location a bit far from some amenities

“Great place”
Reviewed May 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our first stop in New Zealand. Great cozy studio type apartment. Walking distance to some great wineries and the beach. We didn't rent a car (although that might have been easier) but we did fine walking and using the bus.
