The Whai Beach House provides generous accommodation for up to 19 people; perfect for joint family holidays and large groups.

A brand new bed and bath pavilion boasts 6 bedrooms (with heating) with a range of sleeping configurations to suit almost all group requirements. Designed in an ‘L’ formation to maximise the northerly aspect all bedrooms open onto a veranda which descends to the lawn. A stepped design to the south also allows sea views from four of the bedrooms.

This is complemented by a fully renovated beach house which provides a fantastic open plan kitchen, living and dining space with all the mod-cons required for today’s lifestyle. This opens onto a North Easterly facing deck which captures the morning sun making it a perfect spot to enjoy breakfast whilst taking in views across the estuary. A covered patio provides further space for outdoor entertaining and a great spot for the BBQ.

All of this is only a 50 metre stroll from the waters edge or to the boat ramp, a 10 minute walk to one of Northland's finest Link golf courses and bowling club and the boat ramp is only 150 metres up the road. The Mangawhai Heads Shopping Centre is only 1km from the beach house and provides a variety of cafes and restaurants to suit one and all and Mangawhai Village is only 7km away offering tennis courts, soccer and rugby fields.

Come and enjoy everything the Whai Beach House has to offer. **MINIMUM 2 NIGHT STAY**

    Great bach. Location right on the estuary at Maungawhai was amazing. Step off the front deck and stroll across the road to have sand beneath your feet. Facilities in the bach were great. Great cooking setup, amazing oven to cook with. Loved the bathroom with overhead natural light. Rooms were warm and cozy. We had one full day of rain but were happy to stay inside as the bach is spacious enough to accommodate a large family and not feel claustrophobic. Would definitely stay again sometime.

    Fantastic place to stay! Great location & great layout for the crew. Only one small gripe was that we were unable to connect to the Wifi. Thanks very much - we really enjoyed ourselves in this awesome bach! Please can we rebook for approx the same time next year? Would be great if someone could phone me to confirm - 027 496 5505

    We had a great time at The Whai - perfect for large families or groups! The separate bedroom pavilion meant that everyone socialised in the living/dining/kitchen space and outside. I would love to stay there again! So nice to walk across the road for a swim :)
