Classic kiwi bach with retro charm!

When this house was built in the 70s it was the only bach in the area. The kids used to build huts in the bush, explored nearby sheep trails and ponds. Mangawhai has changed since then and the kids have grown up (and now they own the bach!) but the bach has had a makeover and extension whilst retaining its retro charm and awaits your visit

Built on a large section with lots of mature trees, the house is ideal for a summer holiday as the beach is only a short stroll down the road and the shops and cafes at Wood St are also a short walk.

Please note the garage/sleepout is a basic unlined aluminium garage so is cold in winter and can be quite warm in summer.

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.

    awesome batch, loved the retro feel, the kids had a lot of fun with the old school games, very close to beach, parks & cafes. We had a lovely down to earth laid back holiday. Thank you :)

  • Cool traditional kiwi batch

    Cool traditional kiwi batch. Handy location. Clean and tidy. Loved all the retro plates. Driveway is a bit of a challenge - very tight.
