Bird Gardens Cottage
The tasteful and stylish Cottage at the Bird Gardens sleeps just two. The cottage is self-contained with a full kitchen, allowing guests complete independence and space but the owners are always close by to ensure guests comfort. With Sky TV, DVDs, CD player and a gas fireplace the cottage is a cozy and comfortable base year round and whatever the weather. The cottage is situated overlooking the gardens but is not accessible by other visitors ensuring your privacy
The cottage is set within the grounds of the beautiful Katikati Bird Gardens. The gardens, established over 30 years ago, are a 10 acre park set directly on the edge of the inner Tauranga harbour. With water-lily ponds, mature trees from around the world, flower gardens and natural wetlands the gardens are a delight all year round. And with over 50 varieties of birds wandering free and in aviaries scattered throughout the gardens, staying in this special corner of New Zealand is a truly unique experience.
