  • Just 10 minutes drive to the nearest beach and a little further to the fun of Mangawhai Heads.

Located down a long drive, this tranquil and private haven offers all you need and more for a peaceful retreat from the rat race.

Sit among the hibiscus and palms, listening to the birdsong whilst sipping on your favourite tipple - or tasting the wonderful local wines.

An information pack is included to help you make the most of your stay with hints and tips on the best beaches, eateries and watering holes plus details of the local attractions and contact details for local services.

This neat and clean property is sited on a lifestyle block run on organic principles which will have you longing for the good life as your day-to-day worries melt away.

There are chooks and ducks, steers, sheep, pigs, two orchards and veggie gardens.

A perfect location, just 10 minutes drive from the restaurants and amenities of Mangawhai village and 15 minutes from The Heads. Eat at the local restaurants or bring your food back from the Saturday morning farmers' market, or the local award-winning butcher. Full size fridge/freezer and stove in kitchen plus BBQ on the deck. Chose to eat al fresco, on the deck or inside, the choice is yours, but either way you will be able to sit back and enjoy the view!

There is only one rental cottage on site, the owners live a short walk away hidden by the trees and will generally be around to respond immediately to any requests.
