Sand Dune Lodge is luxury house completed in 2010 at the exclusive gated Heads subdivision.

Being the last driveway before the Surf beach carpark, it is just a short walk to both the surf beach and Picnic Bay (estuary). The modern open plan interior flows out onto an expansive deck providing stunning views over Mangawhai's famous sand dune and breaking surf toward Te Arai beach. It is also only a short walk along the beach to the start of the famous Clifftop walkway featuring breathtaking views.

The spacious house is beautifully appointed with NZ designed furniture, artwork and accessories as well as digital My Sky, a 42" LCD TV, DVD, iPod compatible minisystem, access to the shared tennis court and gas fireplace and for winter evenings. Three bedrooms feature their own private ensuites plus there is an additional separate toilet provided.

This house is pure luxury in a perfect position with beautiful views - what more could you ask for?

Come and experience Magical Mangawhai in style.

Mangawhai is the perfect summer holiday destination or coastal retreat. With its beautiful swimming and surf beaches and abundant marine life, Mangawhai is a popular spot for sailing, fishing, surfing, diving and summer family fun. The clear waters of the estuary provide safe family swimming, and the secluded white sand beaches of Te Ari and Pakari are a short drive away.

Enjoy the vibrant art and cafe scene, local farmers market and the famous Bennetts Chocolate Shop. Soak up the natural beauty of this slice of coastal paradise, beachcombing, bush walking or just relaxing in a comfy chair with a glass of something cool.

  • Great location

    Great location. Good set up inside. Gas fire was a real bonus. Wonderful walking tracks close by and beach walks a must.

    We stayed here 8 months ago and although modern it needed a bit of attention - bedroom lightbulbs, sky remote not working, paddles for the Kayak not available .. but otherwise great location and comfortable stay! Would book again.

    Fantastic property, which is very family friendly and in a great location near the beach and estuary. The lay out of property is very thoughtfully designed so that everyone has a nice room with en-suite and it has high quality interior finishes throughout the property. It is very toddler friendly with lots of space to run around and we loved that there were toys available too, to keep the kids happy. This is our second visit to Sand Dune Lodge and we hope to visit again soon.
