If you're feeling like it's time for a break then maybe you should take a dose of Vitamin Sea.

Architecturally designed and situated on a gorgeous bush fringed, sunny section this holiday home is both unique and charming and the outlook over the trees to the sand spit and ocean is beautiful. The house is a brief stroll to the calm, sandy harbour beach at the end of Pearl St or walk a couple of minutes further to the stunning surf beach and avoid the summer traffic jams at the carpark. When you get home from the beach, you can wash the sand off in the groovy outdoor shower.

The main house has 2 bedrooms and the upstairs landing between the rooms has a single bed and there's also a bathroom and kitchen with dishwasher. The pricing for the property is for full use of the main house. In adition, for the larger group, there is a sleepout which has a queen, single and rollaway bed and a bathroom. To hire the entire property including the sleepout is only an extra $50 per night.

In a location where people are increasingly building 'cookie cutter' houses, it is a real delight for us to present this wonderfully unique home and to offer it to rent for people who want more than just a roof over their head but desire an experiece as well. Go on, get yourself a dose of VItamin Sea....

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 on the deck with a glass of something cool.

  • Our second stay

    Our second stay... and we would really love to come back many times. It has become our families' sanctuary. The bach was tidy, everything in working order and with everything that we needed. Views are just lovely from here and even though it was too cold to swim, the long stretch of sandy beach is a lovely place to stroll along and enjoy the environment.

    Fantastic bach, well set up to cater for your needs & the fact that we could take our pup was a bonus. We loved being able to walk to the beaches. We will be back!

    A lovely bach - clean with everything we needed and in working order. Big section for the children to play outside, beautiful sea views from the deck and rooms, modern lay-out and a very short drive to the great surfing beach of Mangawhai. We enjoyed our stay very much. Highly recommend it.

  • We have stayed here before

    We have stayed here before. Unfortunately this time around we found the house very dusty and the master bedroom duvet was covered in long white dog hair. We also had no hot water when we arrived as the water had not been turned on. Also the fridge had not been turned on.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The owners just saw your review on bookabach and asked me to provide this response. They are very sorry that your second visit was not as good as the first and wanted to let you know that what may have looked like long white dog hair on the master bedroom duvet was in fact aplaca fibres from the newly replaced duvet inner. Bach Stay apologises for inadvertently not having switched the power on prior to you arrival. The owners have offered you a free night with any 3 night booking as compensation
