Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps 9)
Our family has owned this property since the early 1960s. The cottage was built from mature macrocarpa trees planted by our dad on his farm. We would spend most of our summers staying at Mangakuri, dad coming and going a bit with haymaking, shearing and pea harvests demanding attention. Blissful summers - the days were ruled by the low tides when we would explore the rock pools, splash widly in the warm tidal pools, catch reef fish, crayfish and snorkel for paua. It hasnt changed for us except for the depletion of seafood. We love the beach and the bach - it is our family's gathering place as often as we can.

Loved the rustic house and beautiful views. A lovely relaxing stay, especially loved the outdoor shower!
The most relaxing place on Earth!
Quiet, peaceful, relaxing. The best place to go and take a break.
Great! I bet you wish you were out there these last couple of days!
Have to get the right phone number for the weather service next time!!
Fantastic little bit Hawke’s bay beach paradise.
Thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Charming little spot and we definitely wished we were staying longer from the moment we got there.

The best place to get away from it all we have been to
Great old style kiwi rustic bach and great place in a great location if you want a few days away from it all this is the place

awesome place to stay lovely bach highly recommended.
lovelly spot wonderful veiw off the sea the birds tui s yes heaps of them impression on property we wanta go back.
GREAT! We just love it too and we can only keep it with financial help from other users!
Remote. Magical. Bring all the food you need - closest shop is 40km away!
Stay two nights and feel like you've been away a week! Swim. Talk. Fish. Eat. Curl up in a beanbag in the sun & get lost in that good book you've been waiting to read. Play board games. Explore rock pools at low tide with your kids - and great snorkeling: be careful of the marine life and turn every rock back over the way you found it! Walk to Pyramid Rock at the south end of the beach. Snug up to the fire in winter and have a toasty-hot bath outside under the stars. Not many places on the planet where you can do all this with no interruptions!
The kitchen is stocked with the usual utensils and there is a fridge-freezer and an oven (the solid old kind!).
Note that this is a well-loved family beach cottage built in the 60s and iconic for the era. It is a bach in the kiwi sense rather than a modern day apartment or town house!
Please don't wander in the paddock at the back (it is private farmland) and if you have a dog please make sure she/he doesn't!
