  • Really good place to stay. Cabin is comfortable and well appointed. It is in a good location for getting to the beach and Hayden made us feel very welcomed.

    Jeff2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Magical spot. Hayden was a great host and his cottage is extraordinarily well stocked. Disappointed we didn’t have time for another night would definitely stay again.

  • A cute wee spot well off the beaten track. Nice for a short stay.

  • Highly recommended Hayden's place! So quiet, the cabin was clean, well styled and had everything you need for your stay. Bonus was the spa that was handy to the cabin. Hayden was so helpful and easy to communicate with! My favourite part was when the Cattle were let into the paddock right in front of the cabin, I loved watching them while having breakfast. We hope to staying here again in the near future ( next visit from Australia)

    Kerry2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute place, has everything you need, and a great view (ocean in the distance and a lake). Perfect for escaping the city hustle. We loved all the little extra touches, and Hayden was an amazing and kind host, that let us relax in privacy. So all and all would stay again.

The outdoor shower was amazing and the space had everything I needed. Terrence and Cathy offered me lots of great tips and graciously offered to pick me up from the bus stop in Kaiwaka. I had a wonderful stay!

We loved the outdoor bath and shower. Funky space is spacious and perfect for those looking to disconnect from technology and reconnect with themselves. 10/10 ☺️

    Welcome to your getaway. An expansive, lush property bordered by a stream and native trees with an extensive garden where you are welcome to wander and sit. A private and peaceful Hot Tub area is available for your use. "Southwind" is a small rural property surrounded by farmland and other lifestyle blocks. We are 15 mins drive on sealed roads to amenities in both Mangawhai and Wellsford and 8 mins to the Te Arai surf beach turnoff.
    For your enjoyment, we have recently added a private BBQ area with an outdoor lounge suite, shaded by a pergola. As this is our home our guests are welcome to socialise or we will respect your preference for privacy. Paul has an extensive engineering workshop where his hobby is restoring and flying vintage aircraft. If you have an interest in this area he will readily share his current projects with you. We have an additional bedroom with ensuite and new queen bed, with access from the main deck if required.
    Within a 30 minute drive you will discover a large range of different activities. Your welcome pack supplies details and there is an Information Centre at Mangawhai Heads.
  • Glenys and Paul were wonderful hosts, they were very hospitable and went way beyond our expectations, can’t recommend them enough. The accommodation was excellent the garden was beautiful really good value. Oh and the hot tub was awesome.

    Steve2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great secluded spot and the private hot tub is a huge bonus !!They have perfected the balance as hosts both granting you as much privacy as you need, whilst still being amazing attentive hosts.

    Tom2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Glenys and Paul for being such amazing hosts. You both went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The most tranquil, perfect little getaway. Hand down the best Airbnb we’ve been too, we’ll definitely be back :)

    Anisha2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Paul and Glenys are warm, welcoming and wonderful hosts! Their home is set in beautiful gardens with so much consideration and attention to detail that adds to your enjoyment of your surroundings. From the many thoughtful touches on arrival (we won't spoil your surprise!) to the indoor and outdoor spaces set up to maximise the opportunities to relax. There's plenty of privacy, old school games to play on the lawn and endless peace and quiet! We took two vehicles as we planned to go down to Te Arai (only a few minutes drive) in the truck - and the road is unsealed to the beach. The surf shop at the top of the hill has some great advice on surf conditions and there's a fabulous lagoon worth checking out there too. Mangawhai Heads wasn't too far away, and again the beach and the local area are fun to explore. Paul and Glenys made us feel very welcome and took time to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for a great stay. Our daughter (6) enjoyed every moment - and we all loved learning more about Paul's aircraft projects. We look forward to visiting again!

    Richard2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the place, the garden and the amazing hosts. Very clean with all you need, great with a toddler running around. Thank you!!

    Caroline2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing genuine people. They gave us a warm welcoming, making us feel at home. Together they put in a lot more then we expected from little chocolates to beautiful tasty cookies. The scenery is top notch with a spa that over looks everything. Perfect place to escape the busy life and just relax. Can’t wait to book our next vacation away here again.

    Montel2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing Air B&B!! I can hands down say it was the best I have stayed in to date. We had such an enjoyable relaxing wend. The hosts are such amazing and interesting people. The Hot tub area was even better than we imagined. It was originally constructed from a really large, deep wine barrel. It's so unique and beautiful. It's in a very private area of the beautiful gardens where your encouraged to take a glass of wine and enjoy the spa under the stars. The accommodation itself was absolutely spotless with lots of amazing touches. Handmade chocs from Matakana on the table, Bread, Cereal, Milk, Greek Yogurt, spreads and homemade Choc Cookies (amazing) for you to enjoy during your stay. There is a beautiful outside area with a massive bbq and beautiful fire pit to use. The hosts will give u a recommendation on where to get great local Fish & Chips. All I can say is wow. We would say its the best we've ever tasted. The fish is freshly caught and battered. Paul restores old planes and took us for a walk through his workshop which was really interesting. Once you have a car to get around this is the perfect place to stay. We will without a doubt be booking to come again soon.

    Emma2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Paul and Glenys are lovely host with an amazing home. We loved admiring Paul’s crafts and Glenys baking. The location is ideal if you plan to go to Mangawhai Heads Beach.

    Ali designed this house himself and was inspired by the early cottages on Rangitoto Island. This cottage was constructed with cedar weather boards from a house in Browns Bay, a staircase from a house in Campbells Bay, windows from a 1920's cottage in Mairangi Bay, beams from a spice warehouse in the city and door handles from a lifetime's collection. Creating a distinctively quirky little house!
  • A lovely stay in the middle of the forest, making it really peaceful.

  • Peaceful, quiet, and cosy. A lovely place to get away and relax for a while. Carla and Ali were quick to get back to us and really nice, their dog is very cute.

    Cameron2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about this private cottage! The photos did not give a sense of how special and nature orientated this place is. It was by shear chance that we had an extra night and Carla could accommodate us. Great communication, directions, and prompt reply. The cottage itself is off the beaten track, and a wonderful place to stay if you would like some time to feel immersed in nature in a quirky, charming, soulful spot. Just wish we could have stayed a little longer.

  • Beautiful secluded spot. Loved our stay.

    Leilani2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Georgeous, characterful cottage, that's in a lovely quiet spot surrounded by bush. Great for relaxing, listening to the birdsong, and stargazing. Just 10-15 mins to drive out to Mangawhai & Mangawhai Heads for shops, restaurants, the beach, and a really fab clifftop walk. The hosts are very friendly and live just up the track, so communication is very easy, and we loved getting visits from their dog and chickens!

    Kate2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • What a truly magical little escape! It was a beautiful, clean, private, zen slice of paradise. I really can’t emphasize the word beautiful enough! Our experience couldn’t have been better. From the warm and welcoming hosts, to the delicious coffee in the morning. Amazing value and we wish we could have stayed longer

    We are in Mangawhai village and you can walk to the estuary and cafes, restaurants, pub and Saturday market which is really good. This is a place where you can enjoy going to three great golf courses nearby then return to the home and sit outside on the deck with a beer or glass of wine. Or indeed plenty of lovely walks nearby including Te Arai Point or the Mangawhai Cliftop walk 6 minute drive to the surf beach or 3 minute drive to the estuary beach
    The queen bed room is spacious. Then there is a large bathroom followed by the room with two single bunk beds. The home is spacious and light with gorgeous decks front and back so you have the choice of shade or sun to sit in. We have a camp bed that can be put up in the very large lounge- let me know ahead of time. Bring your Nespresso coffee capsules as there is a Nespresso pod machine in the kitchen.
  • Karen and her husband are amazing hosts. They gave our family a very warm welcome on arrival with a special touch for my birthday which really touched me. The house is very spacious and homely. It exceeded our expectations and we will definitely come back again.

    Leave it all behind and unwind at this off grid luxury glamping site overlooking peaceful native bush and farmland. Our north facing, sun soaked site is perfect for families, small groups and couples seeking a luxurious escape; with something for everyone. Totally off-grid, Arohanui offers campfires and tree swings, a beautiful open air cast iron bath and a cosy bedroom cabin with skylights for star gazing.
    At night, the view of the night sky and stars is amazing. From the bedroom cabin, french doors open up connecting you to the natural surroundings. At the heart of all the cabins is a landscaped courtyard and covered pergola, complete with an authentic pizza oven and hammock, providing the ultimate outdoor living experience. The tiny kitchen provides all the essentials including a fridge, gas hobs, and cooking equipment. Cosy up inside with a good book or a board game on those cooler nights. The cabins are fully fenced to ensure little people stay safe and within sight. Your hosts created this stunning site for your absolute enjoyment and we know you will relish in its setting and style. Built from recycled native timbers, sustainable and up-cycled materials, echoing early colonial styles, the cabins strive to be eco-leaning, and are beautifully styled, with every detail thought through. Arohanui means ‘much love’ which is symbolic of the story and family that led to its creation and for the memories we hope it will bring for all those who enjoy a stay at our glampsite.
    During the day, its easy to head out and explore the area. Mangawhai village is just a 5 minute drive to great coffee and food. Nearby vineyards and olive groves are great for tastings, and the Mangawhai markets on a Saturday are a 'must visit'. Those seeking more action have mountain bikes, nearby walks, golf courses and the beautiful Mangawhai beaches. ‘MAZ’ the Mangawhai Activity Zone is a must for those with children, offering something for kids of all ages, and a coffee container for parents, win-win!

    George2018-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Annie’s Caravan for 2 nights and couldn’t have been happier with the accommodation and friendliness. Annie made us feel welcome the moment we arrived, gave us plenty of tips for walks, food and everything else. The caravan itself is so cosy, it’s a really cool little set-up. Would happily stay again! Thanks again Annie!

    James2018-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time sharing Annie's "slice of paradise". The retro caravan was very funky and ideally sited so that it was quiet and private but close to Annie's home and amenities. Annie is a very bubbly person and a magnificent host, providing so many touches of care from the colourful vase of flowers in the caravan to deliciously healthy breakfasts. We would be back in a heart beat. Thanks heaps Annie

    Jenny2016-10-12T00:00:00Z

    Jason2016-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • When we arrived, Annie made us feel very welcome as soon as we pulled into her drive. She helpfully showed us around her lovely home, pointed out where all the necessary things were, and even joined us for a late night movie. We didn't want for anything during our stay, and Annie even gave us a list of cool things around the area to go and visit. Beautiful breakfasts, too! The caravan itself was warm, comfortable and spacious, and served our purposes perfectly.

    The Cabin is nestled away on our 110 acre property and has elevated views of the farm, with access from a private driveway, and on-site parking. The large studio offers a kitchen, bathroom, seating area, dining area and a ultra-comfortable king size bed. The living space 42m2; Kitchenette 10m2; and the bathroom is over 4m2. A breakfast hamper every morning with continental and gluten-free options. Tea, coffee and milk is provided. A guided Farm Tour and 3 course dinner is available.
    We have recycled New Zealand native timber as sarking for the interior of the Cabin. The feedback from other guests has been very encouraging. The timber gives an ambiance that is hard to describe in words! The Cabin is insulated so it remains cool in summer and warm in winter. We have a lovely wood burner that is great when the weather cools down. There is a flat screen television with free view. Our Farm has an organic focus and we have a natural wetland that is a 'rare gem' being over two hectares in size. That is visible from the Cabin's elevated view.
    Boutique Farmstay is nestled in a rural valley that is only 3kms from State Highway 1 and only 17kms North of Warkworth. We are an ideal stopping point as a gateway to Northland and the Far North. Wayby Valley has some dairy farms as well as dry stock (beef) farms. We are also a dry stock farm. The service town, Wellsford is only four minutes away by car and there is an excellent Albertland Museum adjacent to the modern Wellsford Library. If you like beaches, Pakiri with its white sand is quite spectacular and is only 15 minutes away by car. Mangawhai Heads has an impressive ocean beach that is definitely worth visiting. And for all Chocolate lovers, Bennett's Chocolate Store and Cafe at Mangawhai Village is something not to be missed. Every Saturday, there are great markets to visit both at Matakana as well as Mangawhai. If you like movies, the Matakana cinema with three theatres is only 25 minutes away by car. There are excellent dining out options in Matakana as well as in Warkworth. There is a Marine Reserve at Goat Island that is close to Leigh (an old fishing village, just north of Matakana). There is snorkelling available as well other activities available. It is very popular. White sand beaches on the East Coast are definite must see. Pakiri is only 15 minutes away by car. Unspoiled landscape. Mangawhai Heads is also popular. It has excellent facilities as well. And if golfing is of interest, the Wellsford Golf Course is only a few kilometres away.
  • A great lil' getaway. Tracy was super helpful and serves a really nice breakfast.

    Nick2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Niamh2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place was even more spacious than we could have imagined, and yet was still incredibly cosy and stylish. The wood fire is definitely a great addition and the bed was really comfortable. Tracy was very welcoming on arrival, and no issues at all with communication. Breakfast items provided - particularly the fresh eggs - were thoroughly appreciated. Would definitely recommend.

Bed and couches very comfy and bathroom was beautiful 👌🏽 And cool pets too!

    My place is close to Matakana and Mangawhai which have Saturday morning markets along with nearby beaches at Te Arai, Pakiri and Mangawhai. Our home is on 21 acres with stunning views of the Hen & Chicken Islands. My place is good for couples, group of 3 couples, families, solo adventurers and business travellers. We have hens, horses and cattle if you like animals they are quite friendly, a farm experience if you want it.
    Our home is spacious and has an excellent indoor/outdoor flow to the bbq area, perfect to relax with a glass of wine or beer to enjoy the 360 degree views. You’ll love my place because of the peaceful countryside, you can wind down and breathe the fresh air.
    On our 21 acres there is 4 acres of 100 year old native bush for you to explore or country walks down laneways and suitable for running too. We have two horses, cattle and lots of native birds. Panoramic views that change within each season.
  • Amazing place to stay! Huge house with teriffic view. We will definitely go back. Highly recommended for large group.

    Kyung Bin2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding house with a peaceful location ! We recommend it to everyone!

    Yann2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The house is stunning, built by the owners. All bedrooms are of good size and the lounge kitchen and dining room are all fully kitted out making this place feel like a home from home. The owner Mandy was so easy to deal with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate coming back again!

    Ben2018-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our hosts were such lovely people, their home was warm and comfortable, in a beautiful part of the world. Probably the best endorsement I can offer, is that I will definitely be back soon.

    Loft Retreat is your private and peaceful escape, nestled in the stunning panoramic landscape of Mangawhai countryside, 15-20 scenic minutes from some of the most incredible beaches of the Northland coastline. The unique architectural character of our boutique loft is a special space to slow down and relax. Epic rural views, peep of the sea, tranquil setting, dreamily comfortable bed, scandi 'hygge' vibe. Dedicated yoga/meditation or chillout room too. We welcome diversity, LGBTQ+ friendly.
    A uniquely crafted and beautiful place to completely rest your body and reset your mind space. Upstairs in our self contained barn is a spacious, peaceful loft bedroom and a separate yoga/chillout room, both with dormer windows connecting you to the stunning landscape, sunrise, and sunset. Thoughtfully designed details abound in this stylish yet humble space. Luxury designer queen-size bed with stonewashed linen or 100% cotton sheets. Downstairs is your own private kitchenette, diner, and bathroom. Kitchenette has a kettle, fridge and toaster for your use (please note there are no cooking facilities, but you can use our bbq). We provide a great guide on where to eat out. Locally roasted coffee and boutique teas are complimentary.
    Iconic NZ beach community of Mangawhai village is an easy ten minute drive away, with great Saturday markets full of fresh produce and deli food, artisan cheeses and many organic local products. There's a thriving little cafe scene we are happy to recommend, a boutique chocolate maker, and several good choices for dining out. There's a top quality butcher, and we have a gas bbq* if you want to use it (ask for instructions). The amazing variety of stunning local beaches are a further five or ten minutes drive away, with your choice of surf, space, safe swimming, coastal walks, orcas, or estuary. There's also one of the best scenic waterfall walks we've ever seen. Magical Mangawhai has a wonderfully diverse community of artists and craftspeople, surfers, yogis, organic growers, olive oil and wine makers, alternative therapists and bodyworkers, as well as being a strong farming area and a well-established and popular beach holiday destination.
  • Really lovely place, perfect for a weekend away. It's a nice distance away from Mangawhai, no more than a ten minute drive, but it also means you get the peace and quiet, and a totally difference view and vibe than you would if you were down by the beach. The place was well stocked with everything that we needed, and we found it nice and cool even in the peak of summer. Katy herself was super lovely, and was great at communication, but also leaving us to chill out and relax without feeling like we were intruding, which can happen when you're staying on someone's property. Highly recommended, I would come back here and stay whenever i'm in the area.

    Joshua2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Katy's hygge retreat was an amazing place to spend a weekend away. The whole space was exceptionally well designed and everything we needed was already provided for us. The amenities are top-notch and we hugely enjoyed staying here. Big thanks to Katy as well for helping us getting settled in and offering her friendly local advice.

    Justin2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable and stylishly decorated apartment above a garage. Great location for some quiet beach days or a trip to Waipoua Forest! We loved the cats and the local guide and tips from Katy. Highly recommended.

    Emma2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, serene place with sweet touches. Bed was super comfy and the location was really peaceful and not far from Mangawhai township!

    Emily2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Katy and Leanne’s home is wonderful. It is peacefully located in the rolling hillside with many thoughtful touches within the home. Katy was an amazing host; so prompt in her communications, kind and friendly. If you’re after a home that is calming and serene yet is a short drive to nearby beaches, this home is the perfect base. Thanks again for having us, Katy and Leanne.

    Rei2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Probably the best Airbnb experience i’ve ever had. Amazing location, amazing space and Katy was an incredible host. Could not recommend this place any more!

    Molawin2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little guesthouse to ourselves. We had an amazing time and was also lucky enough to catch an amazing sunset and because there wasn’t much light pollution, the sky lit up with tons of stars! Lovely hosts and super easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend!

    Jason2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • A really beautiful and stylish place in a stunning setting. Katy was incredibly helpful and lovely and shared lots of local tips to beautiful beaches, and local places. Would 100% stay here again for a tranquil and relaxing time. Thank you!

    "The Shed" modern and cosy living space in a beautiful rural setting, within 10 minutes drive from Managawhai town and Te Arai Beach.
    2 level home comprising living/dining/kitchen and deck area downstairs. 2 bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. The large deck area has a rural outlook with outdoor seating and full BBQ facilities. Ample parking onsite adjacent to the main house.
    Te Arai, Mangawhai is a rural setting within 10 minutes drive to the main centre and a selection of beautiful beaches (Te Arai, Mangawhai Heads and Pakiri) Mangawhai is a bustling little town with a wonderful range of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes.
  • Very nice place. Clean and modern and comfortable. If you’re looking for a quiet place out in the country, this is a really good one.

    Noah2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • "The Shed" was a stylish house set in the beautiful countryside. I was surprised by how modern it was but still remote enough that one could relax and be peaceful. "The Shed" is completely detached from the owner's house and offers privacy. The unit has an upstairs with a great shower and two bedrooms. The downstairs area has an open living area with a fully functioning kitchen and an amazing deck where you can see the countryside, sheep, and Little Barrier Island off in the distance. Great views.

    Kenny2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Shed is very clean with modern amenities and a nice outlook over farm land - with killer sunrises (so my early rising friend tells me 😅) and farm animals. A great space for a getaway that's not too far out of Mangawhai and from Te Arai beach.

    Alysha2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Shed was perfect for long weekend surfing trip for 2. The bedrooms and deck have a wonderful view overlooking a field of sheep and cows which is so peaceful. The kitchen is well-equipped and spacious, and we used the outdoor BBQ grill each night of our stay. The place is a 2 minute drive to the surf hire shop (see Aotearoa Surf School & Board Hire) and 15-20 minutes drive from 3 beautiful beaches. Julie and Richard were so friendly and happy to share local knowledge, but also respected our privacy. We’d love to visit again soon.

    Toby2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Julies place is fantastic and she was very helpful and easy to communicate with when my travel plans were messed up. The house is even better than the photos. Great interior and great vistas of the area from the house!

  • Mark's place was perfect for our week working in the Warkworth area. Not too far from the job and close to shops and restaurants. It was great to have a private and quiet space to return to in the evenings. Communication was quick and easy. The space itself, was clean and tidy with parking for two work vehicles. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

    Karl2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mark's cottage was clean, comfortable, private and with everything provided. The bed was so comfortable, affording a great night's sleep. We were amazed at how quiet the property area was, considering there were other residents living there. It was an ideal situation for us, with family living in close proximity. We loved that Mangawhai Village was in walking distance, so we were able to enjoy the Saturday markets and have regular coffees at Bennetts (a must visit). Our 2 week stay was most enjoyable. Thank you Mark.

    Jenny2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Mark's place is really great. He has everything you may need in the cottage. The place is perfectly clean and quiet. Trampoline and heated pool are nice add-ons. all in all, a very nice place to relax for a few days.

    'Super cool' describes our place! Some of the best ocean views in NZ can be enjoyed from all parts of the house, especially the cedar hot tub! Well equipped, designer kitchen designed for foodies, retro furniture and you can bring your dog too! We have everything you need - smart tv, wifi, well equipped kitchen (with sharp knives!), hot tub and a whole acre to enjoy. This is a truly unique escape.
    Nestled high above the gorgeous seaside settlement of Mangawhai and yet only 15 minutes drive to the beach you'll find our place which we call 'In the Clouds'. We've spared no expense in setting up the perfect, luxury holiday escape. You will be spellbound by the view, that's a promise! Enjoy the large, classic, cedar hot tub and soak away you stress or spend the day in the kitchen which also enjoys amazing views thanks to the 25 foot glass slider door which opens fully to let the outside become part of the interior. There's Wifi for you to use, a 43" full HD smart tv with Netflix and also an AppleTV for you to use and rent movies if you wish. Feel free to bring the dog(s) and the kids will love it to. The house comfortably sleeps 5 but the couch is fine for a sixth person and is perfectly comfortable to sleep on if you do need that extra sleeping space. PLEASE NOTE: sheets and towels are not supplied but if you are coming from overseas or further away and can't bring your own, we can easily arrange linen hire from a nearby town for you at a cost of $20 per person - you will need to request this when you book. The main bedroom doesn't have blinds as we like to sleep with natural moonlight/starlight but don't worry - the house is very private!
  • Amazing place. Photos do not do it justice!

    Stefano2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Nathan2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Joshi2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend. Great chill out spot

    Joe2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Matt's place is truly amazing, getting off the main track and spending a few nights up here was a blessing! The house is warm, friendly and inviting in every room and the little touches were fantastic. Anyone that's in to cooking will go nuts over the kitchen, set up perfectly for entertaining while still giving an amazing view out across to the ocean. Definitely the best part was the cedar hot tub, nice and warm after a day full of activities with the starry night above (little to no light pollution too so milky way was very visible!). Will definitely be heading back if we're lucky enough to get time to!

    Mustafa2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Matt’s place. The views were just amazing! It felt peaceful and secluded, but it was also close enough to drive to the cafes/restaurants. We’d love to come back again next time. Thank you Matt!

    This is a great cosy cottage for a wonderful Mangawhai Holiday. Very close and walking distance (a few minutes) to Mangawhai Tavern, Estuary, Village shops and cafes. A Lovely garden to sit in and relax. I will be living in the sleepout at the rear of the property but you will hardly see me.
    I have 3 lovely, friendly cats that spend most of their time outside and I will feed them.
  • Lovely cottage to yourself in the centre of Manghawai, short walk to shops, cafes or short drive to the beach. Would recommend.
