Cosy Earth dome with alfresco bathroom amongst bush
We are a family of four that have built this ever evolving spot - having fun creating, running workshops, learning and enjoying the beach in between. Glen is a yoga teacher, animal flow instructor & is the ideas man! Nic is a massage therapist and naturopath & loves to create fresh food from the garden/orchards/bush/weeds

Why gleney285 chose Mangawhai
We returned to the area where Nic grew up & had a vision to create a retreat with unique accommodation using natural, recycled or reused materials where possible. We also wanted a wee bit of bush, gardens & orchards. We love people enjoying Tara Retreat in whichever way they need - to relax, cook, chill, meet new friends, hibernate, be active, raid the garden. We live onsite and are mindful of giving our guests privacy but welcome questions or chat as well.
What makes this Guest House unique
Tara Retreat is just minutes away from Mangawhai Village, weekend markets, Bennetts Chocolatier, Dune Cafe and the Mangawhai Tavern, wineries, olive groves, a golf course, lovely bush and coastal walks and of course many great beaches!
