Treat your group to a short break away from the ordinary!
Tara Retreat is a glamping and eco accommodation space - space for relaxation, space for privacy, space for play - it’s the perfect space for your group of friends or family to get the most out of Magical Mangawhai!
Tara Retreat is just minutes away from Mangawhai Village, weekend markets, Bennetts Chocolatier, Dune Café and the Mangawhai Tavern, wineries, olive groves, a golf course, lovely bush and coastal walks and of course many great beaches!
This rural getaway has five unique accommodation options - a self-contained studio, a handcrafted cob cottage, a spacious gypsy truck lined with native timbers, a retro caravan with its own covered deck and a comfy glamping tent. All set amongst two acres of orchard trees, citrus and banana groves, vege and herb gardens and native bush.
It is an ideal place for a group to holiday away together as you will have the whole retreat to roam around in. Each accomm option has its own private setting for enjoying a lovely local wine in the afternoon sun, or your party can meet up in the fully-equipped outdoor kitchen for a BBQ, listen to some tunes and dine al fresco together - yay!
The property also boasts a yoga studio which can magically transform into a dance floor at night, some hammocks for lounging, and rural, garden & bush views.
Come and make yourselves at home!

“Lovely rustic setting with an awesome veggie garden. Enjoyed fresh mint in our cocktails and fresh basil in our dinner. Friendly dog and cats and great place to chat in the outdoor kitchen to other guests staying on the property.” Garry, Byron Bay
“What a gem! We visit Mangawhai often and have stayed at many holiday lets and I think we have now found the most comfortable bed in Mangas! Had a great nights sleep after being pounded by the waves at the Heads. Glen made us feel right at home and Nicky responded quickly to a phone message left enroute. Its a great option if you have a few of you staying with the caravan, cob house and tent as alternatives too. Highly recommend. At the risk of sounding like the Terminator “We’ll be back”. Debbie, Pukekohe
