Why ruthie641 chose Manakau
We love the peaceful environment we live in. We are in a sheltered microclimate, excellent for growing plants, fruit and vegetables. We also enjoy being close to excellent beaches, good golf courses and walking tracks, yet we are still close enough to Wellington to take advantage of what a larger city has to offer.
What makes this Guest House unique
One hours drive to Wellington city or 15 minutes from the suburban train
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
The accommodation was lovely and clean and Gary and Ruth had lit the fire ahead of our arrival to make it feel toasty and homely. Very warm and welcoming hosts. We loved their friendly and relaxed style. Walnuts on the table were a yummy treat and loved the garden. Would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet and country retreat.
It was lovely having you to stay. Thanks for leaving things tidy and clean.
Peaceful, Cozy Bach
Really enjoyed our stay! The bach was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Although close to the main house it still felt very private. The fire was cozy and the gardens are beautiful! If you are looking for a peaceful break I would happily recommend and will be back myself at some point.
Really worth it i was blown away
People r so friendly and respect your privacy house is amazing this is a 5 star from us
Thanks for staying and leaving things so clean and tidy. Hope to see you back.
Five Star Awesome Property
We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Our hosts were generous and kind, whilst respecting our privacy. They left us delicious fresh garden produce, and encouraged us to enjoy strolling the beautiful grounds, which we did. Even the cat and dog made us welcome! Our accommodation was clean and warm, and beautifully furnished and equipped. A five star experience, thank you!

The hideaway is a true gem, a wonderful comfortable stay, it is clean, functional and the garden and surrounding bush is truly breathtaking, such a wonderful place to rest and recharge, would highly recommend a stay here, I will be booking again in the future.
We would love to have you back!
Very nice granny flat, however did not say in the ad that this ganny f,lat was off the owners carpor
Very nice granny flat, however did not say in the ad that this ganny f,lat was off the owners carport. I would not have booked it if I had known. We were there for 4 nights and we're only given one set of old towels and no more would be given until your forth day , which was the day we left. The wifi did not work, did like the dog and
cat coming to visit. Nice poeple just think they need to let people know that this is not a bach or a cottage, but a ganny flat off their carport.
Thanks for your feedback Sherilyn. We have just checked the wifi and it is working with reception of 4 bars. We have an extender to ensure good reception. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work for you, but if you had said we would have sorted it out. Yes the accomodation is linked to the carport, but it is private and quiet with good views of the garden, and you can't see the house.
