Calling all those wary travellers, weekenders, honeymooners or those who simply feel like relaxing and unwinding for a few days. Wake up and enjoy an early morning cuppa in the sun on the patio, wander to the village for the morning paper, (if its Saturday you'll even catch the markets) maybe even breakfast at Bennetts, grab your daily provisions and head back to wallow in the all day sun to read that book you've been meaning to finish for months! Feel free to pull the odd weed from the vegie garden if your green fingers are starting to change colour. For those feeling more energetic, a paddle around the estuary could be on the menu, a game of tennis at the local courts or maybe take the ever popular cliff track and beach walk from the Heads? (You haven't been to Mangawhai if you haven't done this!) 5 o'clock comes around all too quickly but the good thing is it's time to relax again in the evening sun with a chilled lager or Chardonnay with the artisan style cheese you picked up at the famous Kaiwaka Cheese shop. The keen fishermen will be chomping at the net to catch a flounder or two down at the estuary, then back to throw them straight on the barbie for dinner. Oh - and help yourself to the fresh produce from the garden for the salad (when in season). And that's the day almost done - unless you want to stroll on down to the tavern to catch the scheduled band playing on the night. Of course you'd be excused if you simply wanted to chill with a movie at home. The main thing is; there's always something for everyone at Grange sur la Dune and everyone is welcome!

p.s. If you're feeling like a winter getaway, the heat pump will help warm the cockles of your heart over those cooler months.

    Gorgeous bach with loads of character, and the special touches from the owners were much appreciated - croissants and jam to welcome us, and posies of lavender and roses from the garden. Would definitely stay again!
