Charming two bedroom cottage with spectacular views over Mangawhai Harbour and sand spit out to the Hen and Chicken Islands. There is a massive, flat lawn area for loads of outdoor fun and best of all, only a few minutes walk down to the Bullet Point beach and pontoon - one of the locals' favourite 'all tides' swimming spots!

There are 2 bikes and kayaks for you to use (please bring your own helmets/lifejackets as these aren't supplied).

You'll find the golf course, bowling club, bush tracks, Mangawhai Activity Zone (with its famous skate park), shops and multiple cafes and restaurants, all just a few minutes walk from the cottage, or a very short drive or bike ride.

PLEASE NOTE: Lifejackets and bike helmets are not provided - should you require these items please bring your own.

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.

  • Good location near shops and estuary

    Good location near shops and estuary. Enjoyed the use of the bikes. Bit of a climb down to the estuary so wished we had a trolley for our paddle boards. Loved bringing our little dog and used a stake and long lead in the garden which worked well as no fencing.

    A compact little bach, almost like an apartment, but very cosy, great fireplace - easy to keep tidy. Close to two entries to the beach. Easy comfortable bach to stay in - love the coffee machine!

  • Location is great, can walk to the beach

    Location is great, can walk to the beach. Very quiet and private. Everything you need, although no towels not sure if that was stated on the website but bring some towels. Would stay again

    Owner/manager responds:

    It is mentioned in our booking email that linen is not provided and that includes towels and tea towels but we also understand that sometimes people get caught short or miss some details so we are always there to help out and can assist in that regard in future.
