  • Traditional family bach
  • Walk to beach
  • Near boat ramp and golf club

Just round the corner from the Estuary and walking distance to the surf beach, this is a great place for a holiday. It is close to the boat ramp and all amenities, and has lots of room for tents, boats etcetera as we also have an empty block of land next door.

The bach is in good condition with one double bed room and a second with two bunk beds (children capable) and a double fold out sofabed. A large deck links the bach to a cabin with a double bed and its own ensuite (newly established in December 2011). The deck has an outdoor seating and bbq area, and has an outside shower.

There is an outside shed with a washing machine and drinks fridge, plus storage if required.

This is a traditional family bach which is quite warm in the winter months. We don't have a TV, but have lots of games, puzzles, stereo etc. Our approach to renting is very open. There is usually beer and wine in the fridge so that you can have a cold drink when you arrive, and restock for us. If you use something of ours, we trust that you will replace it. We have found that this approach is easier for all concerned and ask that you respect it.

There is plenty to do in and around Mangawhai including fishing, diving, golf, surfing, sailing, water skiing, walks and easy travel to Waipu or Te Arai. Recently, there have been many local walks documented and are available at the information centre. There are croquet, boules and various games included, or why not just sit on the deck and relax in the sun. The choice is yours…

Special conditions: Two night minimum stay. Small pets may be acceptable.

    Great location. Bach needed a clean when we arrived but other than that, great place to relax and unwind.
