About this Holiday House

Fabulous views over HalfMoon Bay and out to the Titi Islands. Watch the sun come up over the water from the deck (or bed!) and experience the island's birdlife from any room, day and night. A comfortable, renovated but character family cottage with original charm but modern convenience and located to allow you to experience all the Island has to offer. A short walk to shops, hotel and ferry, minutes from Bathing Beach and close to Church Hill restaurant. Kamahi Cottage is an unforgettable delight. From the deck and sunroom, almost everything the island has to offer can be glimpsed. Bush birds such as kaka, tui, bellbird, tomtit, kakariki, wood pigeons, fantails come and go with the seasons; seabirds such as the great mollymawks, the excitable terns, oystercatchers and skua’s come and go with the weather; on summer nights the calls of the little blue penguins that nest below in the cliffs and bush can be heard. Out to sea, beyond the heads, the illusion of the ‘Two Sisters’ lie head to head as if trapped in time and myth. Behind these, Ruapuke and the coast of Southland appear seemingly from nowhere. The wonderfully varied shapes and colours of fishing boats arrive and depart with the tide. The sun rises out of the sea, the full moon lifts over Lonnekers Beach, and at the suggestion of rain, countless rainbows emerge.

The cottage is charming & homely - loaded with character, and the location is absolutely perfect. The woodburner is a real plus! Niki (host) was extremely helpful with regards our plans; very much appreciated. I will be recommending a stay in Kamahi Cottage to all family, friends and colleagues who plan to visit Rakiura. What a stunning place - NZ at its best!!

Kamahi Cottage is a charming cottage, very well located and with wonderful views out over Half a Moon Bay. We really enjoyed pur time there
Ruth Pritchard
A stylish and tastefully presented house, with plenty of room and everything you need for a short or long stay. A beautiful spot, handy to everything and so comfortable to just stay and relax in the sunroom or beside the fire. We loved everything about this place, would definitely recommend and love to return some time!
