  • Great little place for a small family

    Great little place for a small family. Short drive to surf beach and harbour. Kids loved the tramp and the space around the lawn to explore. The only down side was that there we a lot of creepy crawlies (Ants, spiders-a couple of white tails) so the place may just need a spray. There were no rubbish bags, which we had to purchase, maybe having one available in the draw would have been nice. The Bach was also missing a few basics like tea, coffee and salt. But we loved mangawhai and will be back!

  • The property is nice and it was clean

    The property is nice and it was clean. The location was good. However, even though when you're required to take out the rubbish there were no rubbish bags available

    Owner/manager responds:

    Unfortunately as we manage almost 70 houses, we can't provide rubbish bags for every booking as it would cost too much. Before you booked with us you were made aware that you need to remove rubbish from the property and you agreed this was ok so it seems somewhere along the line there was a communication breakdown. I'll be reviewing all of our literature to make sure this requirement for rubbish removal is made clearer so there is no confusion in the future. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay :-)

    A decent location and a well maintained property although the amount of rubbish on adjacent sections was disappointing. Biggest let down though was the fact that it advertised two queen beds where it was actually one queen and one double. it's an easy fix bookabach and it will save others the annoyance of bringing the wrong size bedding! Despite these two let downs would I book again - yes, just get the bed size correct before I do!

    thanks for letting us know, I've updated the listing to show that the 2nd queen is in fact not a queen but a double - wasn't aware of this :)
