Located just a few minutes drive from Mangawhai Village and Heads, Te Arai Point and Tomarata Lakes and yet isolated from the developing suburbia of the area this unit provides an opportunity to be at one with nature.

Surrounded by native and exotic forest, themed gardens, short bush walks, ponds and lush farmland the location allows for your escape to be as rich in solitude or as busy as you desire.

Brand new unit with fully equipped kitchen facing onto mature and developing native bush with bedroom up a few steps to a mezzanine floor. Very quiet night and day and just over an hour from Auckland making it an ideal romantic escape location for couples or anyone just looking for some time out.

Our Bushy Barn unit is totally self contained, very modern and comfortable with enough separation from our house to ensure your privacy and security. Located just 4km south of Mangawhai Village on the main Mangawhai/Tomorata Road access is a breeze.

Special conditions: Unit, wildlife, and grounds in general to be treated with due care. Minimum deposit of $50 required to secure booking. Bank deposit, Cash or Credit card via Paypal accepted. Cancellation Policy: No charge for cancellation up to 7 days before first night of stay. Cancellation after this point will result in a fixed fee of $50 being charged, ie no refund of deposit.
