The Harbour View Cottage Boutique Hotel and B&B welcomes visitors and guests since 2000. Erected 20 metres away from the historic 1868 colonial Homestead, a chapel design give the Cottage its romantic and unique character. It was built re-using the timber from the original stables built for the wounded horses of the Royal Artillery following the Battle of Gate Pa in 1864. Set in a quiet sub tropical environment home to many native birds, planted with fruit and palm trees and landscaped with hanging baskets, water feature and miniature vineyard, it has been described as an oasis few ropes away from the heart of Auckland City. Its central location, reachable by bus or train is half way between the Airport and Auckland CBD, making it a handy base to discover most major city attractions ...The Harbour View Cottage Boutique Hotel and B&B welcomes visitors and guests since 2000.

About the neighbourhood
Onehunga is one of the oldest part of Auckland and its natural Harbour used to be One of New Zealand main Port until the middle of the 19th century. The hills overlooking the Manukau Harbour played an active part during the Maori Wars, defending the access to the city. Most of Onehunga original charming homestead and houses are a reminder of its colonial past. Today Onehunga is part of Auckland city with several shopping and market facilities and access to the CBD is only minutes away by car, bus or train. It is also within 20 minutes of most sport and concert centres (Eden Park, Mt Smart domain) and the proximity to Auckland International Airport (10mn) makes Onehunga a very convenient location for tourists.
Getting around
The Harbour view Cottage is only 10 min walk away from Onehunga train station and the train ride to downtown will only take you 20 minutes. Central Bus station is 5 min walk away. We also have E-bikes on daily rental at the Cottage.
