Mini Whananaki Beach House

 WE had a great extended family holiday at Miniwhanaki. The two houses accommodated all 14 of the family including my elderly mother very well. The location was great for us - across the road from the estuary which the younger children enjoyed learning to kayak and paddle board in and the boat ramp is close by too. We also enjoyed the coastal beaches for body surfing which are a short drive away. Really relaxing beach holiday. We are looking forward to returning next year hopefully. 

Panoramic Views from the beach

 This property was exactly what John had said it would be. We loved being there and found having just a little of the home comforts enough to make our stay more enjoyable. I would recommend however, that you take a hefty hammer if you are putting tents up as I think that may be where the "Rock" part came from. It was tough in spots but we still got them up and we did not have to sacrifice space or tents due to inability of putting them up. 

Strawny's Beach House

 Great bach for a crowd of people, great set up for families to holiday together. Love the variety of things to do in Mangawhai, we stayed 2 weeks and had perfect weather the whole time, still didn't fit in everything we wanted to do, would definitely go again and rent this place again. Highly recommend. 

Beauty on the Beach - Waipu Cove

Doves Point - Stunning sea views

 Amazing property, big enough for lots of people and plenty of relaxing. 

Stunning Award Winning Twin Ocean View Beach House

 This is a perfect holiday house. So nice and secluded. We made the most of the different beaches for swimming, fishing and relaxing!! All within short walking distance. Also a great spot for walking. The house itself was amazing! We were 3 families and there was enough room for all of us to be comfortable. Thank you so much for letting us stay in this beautiful house.
