This is beach holidaying at its best! In a place like Mangawhai where precious few properties are close to the water, what more can you ask for but to be right at the surf beach carpark and with a walkway to Picnic Bay right across the road! This is what is used to be like to stay at the beach....the sound of the waves, the smell of the salt and just stroll to the beach in 30 seconds. At Sandy Feet you are RIGHT there!

This charming wee house has 2 bedrooms and the family who own it have also turned part of the garage into another bedroom (no internal access but the teenagers won't care!). The kitchen is well equipped and their are bikes and surfboards to use as well.

The commanding views from the house are almost unbeatable and you cannot get much closer to the beach - and certainly not at this price!

If you want to experience a true Kiwi beach holiday then this is it!

Special conditions: if you would like to bring your pet, please contact us first and tell us about your beloved friend....we are flexible and open minded so tell us more! Please bring all sheets, pillowcases, towels, beach towels, bathmats and tea towels with you. Pillows and duvets are provided. Bach Stay can provide linen for hire for $20 per person.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Glad you liked the location - it really is the best in Mangawhai being immediately next to the surf beach and across the road from the sunny, sheltered 'Picnic Bay'. Sorry you didn't like the furnishings - they are exactly as shown in the photos and the price you paid is less than half of what you'd pay for a newer property on the waterfront road Wintle St so we (and previous guests) feel that Sandy Feet holiday home is still exceptional value for money. Hope to see you again :-)
