Alamar Cottage is the ultimate Mangawhai holiday home as it has 2 self contained cottages PLUS a shared outdoor kitchen as well (so that's 3 kitchens in total!!).

The cottage sits on Alamar Crescent which runs along the waterfront in the most popular part of the Mangawhai estuary, all you have to do is walk out the front door, cross the road and you're on the beach. There are precious few properties that offer that sort of experience in Mangawhai and those who've been here before and struggled to get a car park even close to the beach will appreciate just how special this is.

2 small families can share this property and have the best time together but still keep an element of privacy as the 2 cottages are separate (though joined by a covered dining area with its own kitchen).

The owners have done their best to make the cottages feel like a good old kiwi beach experience so come along and bring the kids and show them what holidaying at the beach is REALLY like!

Mangawhai is the perfect summer holiday destination or coastal retreat. With its beautiful swimming and surf beaches and abundant marine life, Mangawhai is a popular spot for sailing, fishing, surfing, diving and summer family fun. The clear waters of the estuary provide safe family swimming, and the secluded white sand beaches of Te Ari and Pakari are a short drive away.

Enjoy the vibrant art and cafe scene, local farmers market and the famous Bennetts Chocolate Shop. Soak up the natural beauty of this slice of coastal paradise, beachcombing, bush walking or just relaxing in a comfy chair with a glass of something cool.
