Tauranga Camber Holiday Cottage
Tauranga, maori for “place of rest,”is just that—the perfect place to take a break from the bustle. This stylish, detached holiday cottage is just 1.5 hours from London, within the award winning White Sand development and just a stone’s throw from epic Camber Sands beach. On the other side is internationally significant grassland, and a bit further afield—about five miles—is the historic medieval town of Rye, ripe for exploring.
Back at Tauranga, sprawl out in comfort in a two-bedroom cottage equipped with modern perks—from the Sonos speaker and Wii gaming system to the free superfast fibre broadband. Or opt for quiet evenings by the bbq in the garden.

Dining & Lounging
Casual yet luxurious, the living area delights with pops of colour and plenty of tech to keep you entertained. Pick a film from the extensive library to watch on the ultra high definition TV with Now Tv and Blu-ray player, or set the soundtrack for relaxing on the Sonos Music Streaming System. Open the doors to the garden to invite a breeze, or light the electric fireplace on chilly evenings in.
Stylish and functional, the kitchen is fully equipped with a full suite of appliances as well as a washing machine and microwave/grill combo. A breakfast bar sets the scene for morning tea, and a dining area offers a spot for lingering over a bottle of wine.
Bed & Bath
Brimming with natural light, two first-floor bedrooms beckon you to unpack and make yourself at home. Play tunes on the iPod dock and get snug in the first bedroom with queen-size bed, and let kids or close friends share the second guest bedroom with two twins and a 40″ TV.
For shorter stays, two more guests can claim the full-size sleeper sofa, making Tauranga an economical option for quick getaways. A pristine family bathroom features a shower/tub combination with removable shower head.
Enjoy magical evenings right at home on the back garden. Chat around candlelit dinners at a round table for four, and feel the sea breezes as you share stories around crackling flames in the bbq. Sliding doors lead to the living space—leave them open for breezy indoor/outdoor living.
