For the more active, some of the local attractions include bush walking, surfing, mountain biking or a round of golf at an international standard golf course. Enjoy some of the local quality restaurants and cafes and the local tavern which has a varied array of entertainment to suit all tastes.

For the shopaholics, there are a diverse and varied assortment of boutique stores operating in traditional shops and lots of obscure and interesting locations.

  • Absolutely amazing place to stay

    Absolutely amazing place to stay. Wonderful view, great accommodation and easy access to all areas. It's comfortable, well set up and it has that 'homey' feeling to it that will definitely convince me to stay again. Thanks so much for allowing my partner and I to stay here!

    A lovely secluded location surrounded by bush, about 25 minutes walk from Mangawhai shops. It was a pleasure sitting on the deck and looking over the trees to the estuary. The beds are very comfortable and it is very quiet (apart from the cicadas!). The swimming pool is shared with the owners and we really enjoyed our daily swim! It is a good location for short drives to various beaches and cafes.

  • Well set up with all facilities in description

    Well set up with all facilities in description. A good base for the region as well as having the pool to use, an excellent area that we made full use of. An unusual setup which is stated in the description and was no problem for us.
