Special weekend stay in the most beautifil spot.
We loved the quiet but beautiful aspect. Being able to wake up with a view of the lake and the sun appearing over the island was spectacular. Large, well stocked accommodation. Would have liked to have had the use of a microwave and for there to have been a toilet inside the sleepout but other than that it was wonderful.
We really appreciate your suggestions thanks for those and are pleased you enjoyed the tranquillity and winter beauty that is Mangarara and Horseshoe Lake. All the very best, Rachel & Greg
The perfect hideout from urban chaos
We were a group of 5 families with young kids and adventurous adults from Auckand. While looking to find accomodation in Hawkes Bay, Mangarara Eco Lodge was the only on that matched our number and proximity to great attractions. I must say we were pretty lucky to have secured the place on the dates. It was anamazing place with mesmerising views out to a serene lake and the peaceful hills. Our group enjoyed every bit of it, be it the big kitchen, the fire place in the lounge, the kayaking and the best of all the farm tours at 8 am.
Tim and Clare were awesome hosts in the absence of The Harts. It was an experience worth every penny. If the hosts were happy with us, we would return the next time we plan a trip to Hawkes Bay.
Simply the best
We had the best time at the eco lodge, absolutely loved it. Clean, tidy, and everything we needed, highly recommend.
It's really a awesome place to stay
Cleaned and well organized property. Nice nature stay.
When you first walk into the house - the view will take your breath away.
When you first walk into the house - the view will take your breath away. It is a haven for city dwellers. Beautiful flowers in every room. So much bird life and peace. Greg took the kids around the farm where they fed the animals and even moved stock. The house is set up so well - great quality plates, mugs, glasses, linen - in fact great quality pretty much everything!
