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.
Well maintained and very warm, clear instructions as to how to get there, we took the bus and the driver stopped right at the road. Had a lovely stay, thanks highly recommend

I booked Funky Cicada as I was attending a wedding on the island and was solo traveler. The booking process was easy - and the owner Nigel promptly responded to all my questions that I had in relation to the property. He also kindly provided some travel tips for my arrival.
The accommodation is studio style and is shared with the grasshopper property. I liked the interior design of the studio and found the bed extremely comfortable. Tea, Coffee and some milk was provided on my arrival. There is also a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle which made things easy to prepare a breakfast first thing in the morning.
Onetangi beach is approx 10-15 min walk nearby. The path down to the beach provides a spectacular view. Walking back up the stairs might be a bit challenging - so I opted for a road walk around instead. It's a little longer - but good exercise if the day has been spent lazing at the beach.
Cozy cottage perfect for two people. Though it is on the same property as another rental it still affords privacy and you seldom notice the other people except when they are coming and going. The private seating area in behind the cottage is quite nice and offers a good view, with no neighbour immediately next to the property. Not too far of a walk from the beach though the stairs may be a challenge for some.
Gas station and liquor store nearby for the basics, and the grocery store isn't too far by bus.
A nice bbq to use but keep in mind that cooking options are pretty much limited to this.
Awesome studio apartment - nice and modern and clean. It was perfect for a long weekend on Waiheke while we attended a wedding. Nice stroll to Onetangi beach and bus not too far away.
