Places to stay in Mangawhai
This rustic tiny cabin on Mangawhai's estuary is the perfect weekender. Being indeed tiny with its 7 sqm, it is nestled on a large, eco friendly property with lots of trees and birdlife, water views and access to kayak or paddle board, if you bring your own. Only 5 min walk to shops, cafe's and chocolate factory, the saturday markets and tavern. its 5min drive to the beach and at night you can often hear the surf. A perfect hide away in the pulse of Mangawhai.
This is a down to earth place with a wild garden, two cats in the jard and the main cottage made from recycled material. . I live with my 2 sons, Dario and Silva. They both have their separate little dwelling as bedrooms, a Caravan and a former workshop. The cabin itself used to be a little housetruck that got parked up in the garden - without the truck part. Its got a comfy bed, has a balcony with bean bags where you can look out to the estuary through the trees. there is power, a kettle with tea and coffee provided and I can give you some fresh milk in the morning. you have your own private sitting area with a big bbq, that has one element for cooking, and a kitchen bench with a small sink. this outdoor kitchen can only be used in fine weather, as it is not under cover. You have your own outdoor shower, heated with gas. the toilet is a tidy longdrop in the garden. wifi available.
  • Better than a campsite, very close to nature, I loved it. And what a welcome !!!

  • Gorgeous little space with outside shower tucked into the bush, bean bags with a view over the estuary for the morning coffee. Very special little spot.

    Katherine2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely little cabin. A really nice getaway to enjoy nature and just relax. Britta was so friendly and welcoming. Would love to go and stay again. Well worth the price.

  • What an absolute delight this little 'tiny cabin' was. Note that it is tiny - so perhaps not ideal for overly tall people - but ideal for one, and I adored it. A beautiful outlook from the bed across gorgeous bush and wetlands, with pukekoes roaming around. The outdoor shower was wonderful - how amazing to have a hot shower looking out straight into the forest, with no walls in front of you. Peaceful and serene, and oh my gosh, the stars at night! Britta was lovely, very helpful, and very patient with my unavoidably constantly changing travel plans! Will likely do the same trip this time next year, and stay again.

    Karolyn2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The tiny cabin is cute, comfortable and a great place to unwind. We truly enjoyed our stay here, the evening spent on the little deck and the outdoors garden shower. Peaceful setting in the garden by the estuary. This place is tiny but offers all you need, very thoughtfully pulled together. Thanks Britta!

    Kathrin2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The tiny cabin was great! The bed was so comfortable and everything you need is right there. The cabin is in a great location and the property is such a peaceful place to be.

  • Terrence's guest house was the perfect place to escape to. I loved spending days bike riding to Mangawhai Heads on the road bike Terrence and Cathy let me borrow. The outdoor shower was amazing and the space had everything I needed. Terrence and Cathy offered me lots of great tips and graciously offered to pick me up from the bus stop in Kaiwaka. I had a wonderful stay!

  • Funky Space is an incredible little home. Check in was easy and we immediately fell in love with the place. The home is very spacious and private. We were able to relax and unwind in this home and loved the calming vibe of the home. Kitchen has the right amount of utensils, bed is comfortable and everything is clean. We loved the outdoor bath and shower. Funky space is spacious and perfect for those looking to disconnect from technology and reconnect with themselves. 10/10 ☺️

We loved the pool and the accomodation was spotless and had everything you could possibly need. Even though the apartment was attached to the main house it was very private and quiet. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning.

    The Chalet will be clean, spacious and convenient to everything available in this beautiful environment. You will have a generous view of our estuary and sandhills to the front. Then as the property backs on to a farm there is a very strong rural feel, with wide views of Bream Tail Farm and the Brynderwyn hills. Trek the Goldschmidt track to the beach from the top end of Cullen St or 25 minutes walk by road. The estuary walk is about 10 minutes via the shortcut track halfway down the road.
    Spacious Open plan bedroom and lounge with kitchenette. Separate walk in wardrobe for belongings and a tidy and clean en-suite. Wide views to the sea and estuary for you to enjoy.
    Even though we are close to everything our street is not a through street, therefore quiet with not many lights so the night sky is brilliant on a summers evening.
  • Margaret's place is absolutely beautiful, with ocean views on one side, and meadow views in the back. Perfect little getaway! We loved it. It's super clean and tidy. Internet was great. There was milk, coffee, tea, sugar, cornflakes, perfect! And Margaret is awesome! We had a great chat about environment! :-) Highly recommend it!

    Mangawhai Heads, Northland, New Zealand

    'Super cool' describes our place! Some of the best ocean views in NZ can be enjoyed from all parts of the house, especially the cedar hot tub! Well equipped, designer kitchen designed for foodies, retro furniture and you can bring your dog too! We have everything you need - smart tv, wifi, well equipped kitchen (with sharp knives!), hot tub and a whole acre to enjoy. This is a truly unique escape.
    Nestled high above the gorgeous seaside settlement of Mangawhai and yet only 15 minutes drive to the beach you'll find our place which we call 'In the Clouds'. We've spared no expense in setting up the perfect, luxury holiday escape. You will be spellbound by the view, that's a promise! Enjoy the large, classic, cedar hot tub and soak away you stress or spend the day in the kitchen which also enjoys amazing views thanks to the 25 foot glass slider door which opens fully to let the outside become part of the interior. There's Wifi for you to use, a 43" full HD smart tv with Netflix and also an AppleTV for you to use and rent movies if you wish. Feel free to bring the dog(s) and the kids will love it to. The house comfortably sleeps 5 but the couch is fine for a sixth person and is perfectly comfortable to sleep on if you do need that extra sleeping space. PLEASE NOTE: sheets and towels are not supplied but if you are coming from overseas or further away and can't bring your own, we can easily arrange linen hire from a nearby town for you at a cost of $20 per person - you will need to request this when you book. The main bedroom doesn't have blinds as we like to sleep with natural moonlight/starlight but don't worry - the house is very private!

  • Matt's place is truly amazing, getting off the main track and spending a few nights up here was a blessing! The house is warm, friendly and inviting in every room and the little touches were fantastic. Anyone that's in to cooking will go nuts over the kitchen, set up perfectly for entertaining while still giving an amazing view out across to the ocean. Definitely the best part was the cedar hot tub, nice and warm after a day full of activities with the starry night above (little to no light pollution too so milky way was very visible!). Will definitely be heading back if we're lucky enough to get time to!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Matt’s place. The views were just amazing! It felt peaceful and secluded, but it was also close enough to drive to the cafes/restaurants. We’d love to come back again next time. Thank you Matt!

    Karen2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and stunning position . Couldn't fault anything. Matt was really good at responding and made things very easy for us. We would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting a stay near beautiful Mangawhai

    Leave it all behind and unwind at this off grid luxury glamping site overlooking peaceful native bush and farmland. Our north facing, sun soaked site is perfect for families, small groups and couples seeking a luxurious escape; with something for everyone. Totally off-grid, Arohanui offers campfires and tree swings, a beautiful open air cast iron bath and a cosy bedroom cabin with skylights for star gazing.
    At night, the view of the night sky and stars is amazing. From the bedroom cabin, french doors open up connecting you to the natural surroundings. At the heart of all the cabins is a landscaped courtyard and covered pergola, complete with an authentic pizza oven and hammock, providing the ultimate outdoor living experience. The tiny kitchen provides all the essentials including a fridge, gas hobs, and cooking equipment. Cosy up inside with a good book or a board game on those cooler nights. The cabins are fully fenced to ensure little people stay safe and within sight. Your hosts created this stunning site for your absolute enjoyment and we know you will relish in its setting and style. Built from recycled native timbers, sustainable and up-cycled materials, echoing early colonial styles, the cabins strive to be eco-leaning, and are beautifully styled, with every detail thought through. Arohanui means ‘much love’ which is symbolic of the story and family that led to its creation and for the memories we hope it will bring for all those who enjoy a stay at our glampsite.
    During the day, its easy to head out and explore the area. Mangawhai village is just a 5 minute drive to great coffee and food. Nearby vineyards and olive groves are great for tastings, and the Mangawhai markets on a Saturday are a 'must visit'. Those seeking more action have mountain bikes, nearby walks, golf courses and the beautiful Mangawhai beaches. ‘MAZ’ the Mangawhai Activity Zone is a must for those with children, offering something for kids of all ages, and a coffee container for parents, win-win!

    This self contained studio flat below the main house, this has a queen bed and a set of bunk beds. There is a kitchenette, toilet and shower. If you have bigger groups there is a second studio flat next door which mirrors the above accept there is a single bed with a trundler instead of bunks.
    Enjoy a quick walk down to the estuary to take the kids for a swim or go fishing, stroll around the corner to the shops to enjoy a craft beer or hot coffee from the Woodstreet Freehouse, walk up to the Golf Club and Bowling Club for an evening meal, or take the kids to MAZ for a day of fun – you can do it all without getting in your car. A quick 5 minute drive over the hill you will find the surf beach, and just 10 minutes down the road Mangawhai Town centre – home of the Mangawhai Markets on a Saturday morning, the renowned Bennetts Chocolate Factory and the legendary Mangawhai Tavern

    We live on a lifestyle block about 7 minutes drive North of Kaiwaka. The cabin is self contained. It has a small lounge/kitchen/dining; bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin. A bedroom with two king size single beds. In the lounge is a fold out sofa, which turns into a double bed. The kitchen has pots, pans, cups, plates and cutlery. There is coffee, tea, milo, milk and sugar. There is no Wifi inside the unit, it is outside and guests are also welcome to use the Wifi inside our house.
    Guests with children should be aware that we are bordering a lake. The private lake is surrounded by lifestyle blocks, so it is very peaceful and quiet here. We have a jetty from which you can jump or dive straight into the water. We also have a very friendly Golden retriever dog, Chloe, who wants to say hello to everybody.
    Our place is a lifestyle block about 7 minutes drive North of Kaiwaka. Kaiwaka is a small town with, amongst others, a very good 4 square grocery shop, a yummy bakery, Eutopia cafe and a dutch cheese shop. There is also a pub, restaurant as well as lunch bars. We are about 15 minutes drive from Mangawhai village, with more restaurants, art gallery and craft shops. Another 5-10 minutes takes you to Mangawhai surf beach, where you can also take a beautiful coastal walk. Our land is adjacent to a lake, which covers about 25 acres.
  • Amazing lake location, very clean. Comfortable beds and great shower. Thanks to Christa and husband who are fantastic hosts. Would highly recommend

    Elena2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • My mother and I had a lovely stay and we would highly recommend to anyone hoping to get away from the hustles and bustles. We only spent one night there (breaking up our travels from Tauranga to the Bay of Islands) but could have easily hung out there for a few days. Very helpful hosts and an awesome scenic spot - the kayaks were a great addition too!

    Liam2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The thing I must have enjoyed most, was taking a dip in that beautiful lake. The view is stunning, and it's like the whole world melts away. Christa was very friendly and greeted me with strawberries from Henk's beautiful garden. They were both very attentive, and the dog was such a sweetheart. This is the perfect place to stay. It's perfectly located between 2 towns that offer beautiful beaches, restaurants, museums, a cheese factory, and a chocolate factory. It has a fully functioning kitchen, and there is a lot of room inside and outside to spread. I'm definitely coming back again!

    Joanie2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great spot to unwind, enjoy walks around the lake and the rural atmosphere.

    Colette2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Christa’s place. Warm couple whom own a lovely peaceful place. The unit itself was exceptionally clean. Highly recommend.

    Daniel2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved our stay - it’s was exactly what we needed for a quick stop over on our way further north. Just as a side note we didn’t have any reception at all in the cabin which was fine as we were only there for 1 night. I think you can step outside if you are really desperate and of course if you need WiFi you are able to use it at the main house :)

    Jasmine & Phillip2019-10-29T00:00:00Z

    Close to Magical Mangawhai Surf beach, restaurants, cafe, art and culture. You’ll love my place because it is secluded private and quiet. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers. Enjoy the natural view. Only 6 km from Mangawhai Heads shopping, restaurants and the beach. Enjoy all that magical Mangawhai has to offer Saturday markets, Museum, beach & walking tracks. Then retreat to your peaceful private self contained cottage in the olive grove - bliss.
    The Cottage is completely self contained and private set amongst the olive trees with views up to bush covered hills. Enjoy a relaxing drink on the deck as the sun goes down. Wake up to beautiful bird song.
    We live in a beautiful valley on a private road in peaceful rural setting.
  • Peaceful little batch in a very pretty setting. Clean and tidy with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Teresa and her husband where extremely welcoming a took time out to welcome us and suggest places to see and dine at.

    Jenny2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • A great little hideaway, well stocked with the basics and kitchen equipment, and also clean and tidy. Hosts communication very friendly. Thank you!

    Maggie2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely, quiet space to relax. The location is great, 15-20 mins to all the great spots in Mangawhai. We did not meet the hosts as we were out a lot but the place was lovely and the feel was very comfortable. Teresa was a little slow with communication and did not respond to one of our messages but we still had a great stay. Highly recommend.

    Nika Jade2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay, the view on the olive threes and the valley is absolutely stunning. The hosts are passionate and organised an olive oil tasting, thank you again.

    Kalym2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly recommend. This is our second visit. So many great things but the best points would be: peace and quiet, cleanliness, cooking facilities (which other AirB&B offerings seem to lack more and more), bird song, near beaches and food. Perfect!

    Ruggiero2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • I feel so lucky to have stayed at Natalies’ place! The room is completely secluded with its’ own bathroom and it didn’t really feel like sharing a space. It also has rolling blinds for additional privacy in the evening. The pictures for this Airbnb are accurate but I was still surprised at the jaw dropping panoramic bluffside ocean views. This is without a doubt the best location in town. To top it off, there is the sweetest dog onsite named Ms B. We’re now best friends and I’ll have to return for another long weekend to see her!!

    Summer2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    Stay in a self-contained, solar powered off-grid house on the edge of bush, waking up to the sound of birdsong. This house offers a lounge, kitchen , dining, bathroom and a bedroom all to yourselves. Situated on a 35 acre property, the romantic hideaway is away from noise and roads, with only 10 minutes to Mangawhai village where there are shops, cafes and restaurants. 15 minutes to beaches from Pakiri to the Surf Beach of Mangawhai Heads. Has fast Wifi, a fold out couch and a fireplace.
    Ali designed this house himself and was inspired by the early cottages on Rangitoto Island. This cottage was constructed with cedar weather boards from a house in Browns Bay, a staircase from a house in Campbells Bay, windows from a 1920's cottage in Mairangi Bay, beams from a spice warehouse in the city and door handles from a lifetime's collection. Creating a distinctively quirky little house!
  • Peaceful, quiet, and cosy. A lovely place to get away and relax for a while. Carla and Ali were quick to get back to us and really nice, their dog is very cute.

    Cameron2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about this private cottage! The photos did not give a sense of how special and nature orientated this place is. It was by shear chance that we had an extra night and Carla could accommodate us. Great communication, directions, and prompt reply. The cottage itself is off the beaten track, and a wonderful place to stay if you would like some time to feel immersed in nature in a quirky, charming, soulful spot. Just wish we could have stayed a little longer.

    Angela2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful secluded spot. Loved our stay.

    Leilani2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Georgeous, characterful cottage, that's in a lovely quiet spot surrounded by bush. Great for relaxing, listening to the birdsong, and stargazing. Just 10-15 mins to drive out to Mangawhai & Mangawhai Heads for shops, restaurants, the beach, and a really fab clifftop walk. The hosts are very friendly and live just up the track, so communication is very easy, and we loved getting visits from their dog and chickens!

    Kate2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • What a truly magical little escape! It was a beautiful, clean, private, zen slice of paradise. I really can’t emphasize the word beautiful enough! Our experience couldn’t have been better. From the warm and welcoming hosts, to the delicious coffee in the morning. Amazing value and we wish we could have stayed longer

  • Great stay!

    Sam2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful place to stay! We really appreciated the nice coffee and fresh milk, along with the restaurant menus. The bed was very comfy and the house was very well thought out! Thanks Sally :)

    Sarah2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute tiny house with an amazing view in a spectacularly relaxing landscape. It is quite complicated to climb into bed - even for tiny ;) people as myself and the bamboo toilet is, well, special. Some proper light in the bathroom would be nice as well. Other than that I would highly recommend staying here, if you’re looking to escape the hectic of every day life.

    Julia2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We sadly only had one night in the tiny eco home and I can’t wait to get back. If you’re looking to get away from the city lights and star gaze, listen to the near by farms and have coffee with a view of the ocean then this is the perfect getaway!!

    Amelia2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing few days at the tiny house, the views were incredible & the location was great, nice & close to the beach & the shops. Had all the amenities we needed for our few days away, we can’t wait to come back.

    Our place is close to Vineyards, cafes, beautiful beaches, Golf Course and coastal walks. A great place to unwind and relax after a busy day exploring. The tranquil view of the orchard where you are welcome to pick your own fruit or herbs from our vegetable garden. Set on one hectare of land your self-contained cottage, with its upgraded wireless system, it is just short drive to the Mangawhai Village for the Saturday Market, or beach. Perfect for that getaway destination.
    The Orchard has been set up with an outdoor table and umbrella especially for our guests to use while unwinding at the end of the day exploring the area. Our guest have the entire Chalet to themselves.
  • Cute and efficient lodgings with an outstanding outdoor space. Great location to town and multiple beautiful beaches. Our stay was comfortable and relaxing. We would definitely stay here again. It would be great for extended stays or short term stays.

    Samantha2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This property is very comfortable and has everything a traveller wants - we stayed for a week. The property was spotless and great care had been taken over the furnishings and fitting out. Marion was an excellent host who made sure we had everything we required.

    Sally2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • A really lovely space - a converted shed and container, but with all the home comforts and nice touches. Lovely comfortable bed and quality bed linen. Great shower pressure. Nice kitchen, fully equipped. And a gorgeous little garden out from the kitchen window, with picnic table, citrus trees and chickens. Sparkling clean, well-equipped, smooth, easy check-in and friendly hosts who live in the house just a few metres away. We even had fresh eggs from the chickens for breakfast, which were delicious!. Great space for 1-2 people. Thanks so much for a great stay, it was lovely to relax and unwind.

    Tegan2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived just before 10pm & Marion messaged earlier to say she had left the door unlocked & a light on - this was much appreciated. The Shed is well appointed, beautifully clean & the bed with lovely linen was so comfortable. The setting on the owners’ property is tranquil & private. We really enjoyed sitting in the shade at the table in the orchard & having our crackers ‘n cheese we took with us. It was great to meet Marion & John - such welcoming, friendly hosts.

    Glenda & Mike2019-11-17T00:00:00Z

    Set in two acres of rolling paddock and native bush this cabin is the perfect hideaway from busy urban life. This property is pet friendly.
    Enjoy a hot tub overlooking the Brynderwyns and at night see the milky way in all its glory with very low light pollution from the surrounding countryside. From the Veranda you can hear The Tui’s and wood pidgin in the Totara and Pururi trees just meters away. Mangawhai beach is about 12 minutes drive away and Langs Beach is about 20 minutes away. The village of Mangawhai is a 5 minute drive away where you can visit the famous Bennets Chocolate factory. Cooking facilities are: Two burner gas hob and a Weber BBQ with a lid for roasting. There’s a toaster and a kettle/ jug. Good cell phone signal for your data internet connection. This property is pet friendly, please ask for more details.
    Mangawhai is a very popular beach destination that can get very crowded at peak season. You'll be well away from all the noise in this peaceful bush setting, however you will need a car to get around as there is no public transport. Take some time in the morning around sunrise to listen to the birdsong, there's a great variety of native birds and a few interlopers from Australia and beyond. If your staying over the week end go down to the village and check out both the markets. The old market is in the center of the village and the larger newer market is down by the water at the Mangawhai Tavern. Both are great for local produce, food and gifts. during the summer months [October to March] the wineries at King's road put on live music in the afternoons and have cellar door tastings. There also a great number of bush walks with tracks that make the hills around Kings road very accessible.
  • Cute cabin in the woods! Perfect little getaway for a couple, dog friendly with the bonus of an epic outdoor spa. My husband and I spent 2 nights at Mick's cabin recently - it was the perfect place to get away from it all! The cabin was clean and tidy, has everything you need, and Mick was super easy and friendly to deal with. We absolutely loved the super cool styling of the cabin, it's so nice to be able to bring our fur baby along for the trip as well. It's difficult to find a trendy property that allow dogs. Great place!

    Hannah2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Pa Hill Cabin must be one of the most cosy and homie airbnb’s! Mick owns a vintage furniture shop down the road and thats clearly visible in the Cabin! It’s both very comfortable and “gezellig” as its stylish and relaxing. Mick is very friendly and communicative, he’ll help you with anything you might need or want to know. He’ll let you do your own thing but it’s very nice to meet him! The hot-tub on the deck is just a dream. Thx Mick for the best ending of our travels in NZ!

    Muriël2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We have just stayed three nights at Pa Hill Cabin. The decor is incredible, it’s such a great space to spend time, and has everything you need. The fittings and furnishing are truly high quality, with attention to detail in every space. The cabin is sparkling clean and the linen is of really high quality for a restful sleep! The location is ideal too, with a very private outlook and tub, yet a short drive to the township and top beaches. A great escape from the city. Looking forward to staying again in the winter to use the wood burner! Thanks for a great stay Mick!

    Hannah 2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Mick's place is really amazing. It is very well equipped and very nicely decorated. It is very quite and you can just enjoy the Bird songs as you are soaking in the relaxing hot tub. Mick is an excellent host, very reactive and accommodating. We recommend his place 200%.

    Romain2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Super stylish place in a great location not far from the township. Close to Mangawhai heads beach and Lang’s beach. Although you may not want to wander far as this is truly a perfect spot in paradise, relaxing and quiet. The hot tub under the stars is a must. We really didn’t want to leave. Our only complaint it that we should have booked three nights not two.....

    Tonia2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Mick's Cabin is a wonderful and cozy little house, beautifully furnished with a lot of tasteful details. The hot tub and the BBQ place outside made our stay very convenient. The description of the place is very accurate, and Mick was taking care in a perfect way. We can recommend Mick's Cabin to full extent.

    Ruth2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot and comfy spot. Easy access to amazing bush walks right next to the house. Would highly recommend Mick’s place if you want to disconnect and unwind.

    Arjun2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really lovely place to stay, and so much thought has gone into it. The decor is amazing and it is very well equipped. The hot tub with such a stunning view is like the icing on the cake! Mick was a great host and was very responsive to our questions. All in all, a special place to unwind, relax and enjoy some time with the family.

  • My parents stayed two nights at Sharon's place for a wedding they were attending in Mangawhai. It was actually their first airbnb experience and they came home raving about it! They had a wonderful time, the place was clean and tidy, the beds great quality and it was a perfect location to wander off to the beach, the wedding they were attending and also some local delights.

  • Really lovely place, perfect for a weekend away. It's a nice distance away from Mangawhai, no more than a ten minute drive, but it also means you get the peace and quiet, and a totally difference view and vibe than you would if you were down by the beach. The place was well stocked with everything that we needed, and we found it nice and cool even in the peak of summer. Katy herself was super lovely, and was great at communication, but also leaving us to chill out and relax without feeling like we were intruding, which can happen when you're staying on someone's property. Highly recommended, I would come back here and stay whenever i'm in the area.

    Joshua2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Katy's hygge retreat was an amazing place to spend a weekend away. The whole space was exceptionally well designed and everything we needed was already provided for us. The amenities are top-notch and we hugely enjoyed staying here. Big thanks to Katy as well for helping us getting settled in and offering her friendly local advice.

    Justin2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable and stylishly decorated apartment above a garage. Great location for some quiet beach days or a trip to Waipoua Forest! We loved the cats and the local guide and tips from Katy. Highly recommended.

    Emma2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, serene place with sweet touches. Bed was super comfy and the location was really peaceful and not far from Mangawhai township!

    Emily2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Katy and Leanne’s home is wonderful. It is peacefully located in the rolling hillside with many thoughtful touches within the home. Katy was an amazing host; so prompt in her communications, kind and friendly. If you’re after a home that is calming and serene yet is a short drive to nearby beaches, this home is the perfect base. Thanks again for having us, Katy and Leanne.

    Rei2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Probably the best Airbnb experience i’ve ever had. Amazing location, amazing space and Katy was an incredible host. Could not recommend this place any more!

    Molawin2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little guesthouse to ourselves. We had an amazing time and was also lucky enough to catch an amazing sunset and because there wasn’t much light pollution, the sky lit up with tons of stars! Lovely hosts and super easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend!

    Jason2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • A really beautiful and stylish place in a stunning setting. Katy was incredibly helpful and lovely and shared lots of local tips to beautiful beaches, and local places. Would 100% stay here again for a tranquil and relaxing time. Thank you!

    Come and stay at our slice of paradise, only a few minutes walk to the pristine Mangawhai Estuary or 15 minutes to the famous Mangwhai Heads surf beach. Conveniently located just 1.5 hours north of Auckland, Mangawhai is a great place to spend a relaxing weekend! There is always plenty to do in Mangawhai with the Saturday farmers markets, well established eateries, secondhand stores, walking tracks, golf, vineyards, Museum and the best beaches!
    Located in the heart of Mangawhai Heads, on a prized cliff top position, 'the batch' overlooks the boatie paradise of the Mangawhai Harbour. Located right on the road to the Surf Beach, you will be nestled amongst native bush, providing a peaceful setting and change of pace from city life. The Bach is largely open plan, with the kitchen, dining and lounge all sharing one space that flows out to a deck both sides. There are two bedrooms, located at different ends of the house. One bedroom has a queen bed, single bed and a single roll out bed for a sixth guest. This room offers fabulous views of the estuary. The second bedroom has a queen bed and is nestled into the bush, with a sliding door out on to the deck. The Bach has just had a facelift, with new paint, window coverings, lino, and luxurious carpet.
    One of the original sites offered when Mangawhai Heads was established as a beach suburb, this location offers a good mix between views, privacy, and access. Walk two minutes to the the campground, playground and estuary. Walk ten minutes to the swimming beach or surf beach. A few minutes drive to the shops and cafes. Hang out on the front deck and wave to the people strolling by on their way to the beach or relax on the back deck listening to bird song and watching people enjoy the harbour. Day trips are a breeze from this location, there are regular farmers markets at most of the towns nearby. There are often gigs or events on at the pub and nearby venues, especially in summer.
  • Fantastic views, easy set up and access and comfy

    Joanne2020-03-19T00:00:00Z

This guest suite is part of my home & I live here although this area is specially allocated to guests and is totally private for guests with its own entrance. It's within walking distance to the estuary and only minutes by car to the surf beach where beautiful coastal cliff walks can be enjoyed.
    The main bedroom, which has a comfortable queen size bed, has bi-fold doors which open up to a north facing private deck-perfect for enjoying a quiet meal or watching the sun go down as well as a spa pool in which to relax and enjoy studying the stars. The large lounge, dining and kitchen area are very popular with guests as there is a feeling of spaciousness here and the bifold doors open onto he surrounding deck which steps down to the garden. The lounge, dining area has high ceilings. Most guests say that the photos do not give a realistic image of just how spacious and large the lounge is. It most certainly is not cramped! There is a fold down sofa bed in the lounge and linen can be provided for an extra guest. Coffee, tea and condiments are provided.
    This area is handy to both villages and there are many stunning beaches to visit in the surrounding areas. The local cafe is a short ten minute walk, as is the quiet estuary. Also close by is the stunning local surf beach with beautiful beach walks ,the local history museum, golf course, shops, takeaways, restaurants, local artists gallery and the buzzing Saturday morning market. On weekends there is music at the Mangawhai tavern and sometimes at the local vineyards where tastings and meals are available. Paddle boarding, surfing and fishing are all popular sports here.
  • Linda's place was perfect for a relaxing weekend away. We had a bit of rain so her lounge was the perfect place to settle in for a movie. Having a spa under the stars was lovely

    Nic2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Linda’s place was a described and I found it a calm and tranquil space to spend a few days relaxing. I really enjoyed the space and the hot tub. Definitely a great place to stay if you’re travelling around the north east coast! Linda was also very welcoming and lovely.

    Clare2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Linda's place is fantastic: quite hidden away in a quiet & secluded cul-de-sac, it is remarkably clean and homely. We felt really welcome, and the whole place had a very calm and peaceful feeling to it. We thoroughly enjoyed the 2 nights we spent there, and loved using the spa pool in the warm evenings. All in all, highly recommended. Thank you Linda.

    George2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing little get away. The house is amazing, incredibly clean and cozy. Linda is very helpful and knows the area very well. Would absolutely love to come back to stay.

    Sheena2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • When I decided to travel to New Zealand to visit my daughter, who is working at a private golf club in North Land, I had a few decisions to make. First, I had to decide when to go and when to come home. Second, I had to find a flight. And third, I had to find a place to stay. I checked out local hotels, and they were quite varied in location, amenities and price. My daughter had used Airbnb before, and she told me that she was quite pleased with her experiences, so I decided to give it a try and see if I could find a place close to where she was staying. I searched the listings, and I found this charming place in Magical Mangawhai Heads, which was not far from my daughter’s place. The place looked beautiful, it had great reviews, it was available for my planned dates of travel, and it was being offered for a great price. So I booked my stay. My messages to the host, Linda, were promptly returned and communications through the Airbnb app were easy. So we arranged for my arrival, and she was there to greet me when I arrived to show me the place and make sure that I got settled in. Check in was a breeze. I had a small plumbing issue during my stay, which she took care of promptly so it did not interfere with my stay. We ran into each other once during my visit to a local restaurant, and she was so pleasant and gracious; this further confirmed my decision to stay at her place because I like to do business with nice people. Check out was a breeze, and the whole experience was a very positive one. If you are considering visiting the North island of New Zealand, and you are looking for a convenient and comfy place for one or a couple, then give this place a look. I don’t think you will be disappointed. I know I wasn’t. It was actually larger than I expected - or even needed - but the extra space and amenities made me feel even more pampered. Thanks to Linda for an excellent Kiwi adventure.

    Come & stay with us to experience the style and warmth that Harthouse cabins offer, tucked away in a beautiful rural setting . Escape the summer crowds but being only a 5 min drive from the village means that the the beach, restaurants, markets and great coffee are all within easy reach. Use this listing to book a single cabin (sleeps two) - to book both cabins please refer to our other listing. Either way, you will have the whole site to yourselves.
    The "Retreat" is tucked away in the idyllic Mangawhai countryside and consists of two 'Harthouse' cabins, each with queen beds and attached deck areas. Between the sleeping cabins is a central gazebo with cooking and dining facilities (a continental breakfast is provided free of charge) as well as indoor and outdoor seating. There is a separate bathroom with a shower and toilet, also situated in in the central area. All of the facilities are new builds (designed and built by Harthouse) and are in pristine condition. We provide high quality linens and towels, and the cabins have been thoughtfully fitted out with everything you might need. The cabins have their own entrance with private parking right next to the "Village". Our cabins are off grid and environmentally friendly (solar powered); we have 12V sockets for USB so you can still charge your devices. However this does mean that appliances such as hair dryers cannot be used. We also provide recycling facilities and eco friendly products to keep our retreat environmentally friendly!
    Our cabins are tucked away in the beautiful New Zealand countryside, but are within close reach of both the town and beach (a short 5 minute drive from the main surf beach and 10 minutes from town). The surf beach offers great spots to swim and surf as well as many beautiful walks such as the world renowned Mangawhai Cliffs Walk. At the near-by estuary you can hire paddleboards and kayaks. There are also many other beaches near by (such as Te Arai Point or Waipu) which are ideal for day trips. Mangawhai Heads and Mangawhai Town are the two 'hubs' of the area. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and cafes in each as well as a museum, world renowned skatepark and 'activities zone', several markets and winerys. We have provided a small handbook that includes our recommendations for restaurants and take out places (as well as copies of their menus). We also provide road maps, tourist information and recommendations for other activities in the area.
  • Our little cabin was amazing! So snug and modern. Perfect for a quick getaway!

  • Really cool space with an eco vibe. They really have put a lot of effort in to making this are a nice clean eco friendly area. Amazing star veiwing at night and awesome chill out zone during the day. Is far enough from town to feel like you're off the grid, but close enough to easily drive in for a bite. Would recommend.

    This solar powered cabin is set in its own secluded area on a lifestyle property. Enjoy the bush views, BBQ on the deck, listening to birdsong, and the sound of the nearby stream. The cabin is set amongst native trees and is 10 minutes drive to Mangawhai. The cabin features a loft bedroom, generous deck, unique shower and an outdoor bath. It has a fridge, gas cooker, tea and coffee. A chemical toilet. Relax to the sounds of native birds, and if you are lucky, the call of the kiwis at night.
    To view a video of the cabin and surrounds go to You Tube and search: Totara tree cabin. On another part of our rural property we now also have "Grace the Classic Kiwi House truck". Check it out on AirBnb.
  • Glenn and Sharyn’s cabin is absolutely perfect for a quick getaway. No reception means you can completely unwind and enjoy the beautiful surroundings from the deck or the outdoor bath.

    Rachel2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the best stays I have had in New Zealand so far. So peaceful and super relaxing, a real hidden gem. The place was extremely clean and had everything we needed. Absolutely loved the outdoor bath! Wish we could have stayed another night, one night is not long enough. Thanks again for a great stay!

  • Excellent place to stay with everything you need close to Whangarei

    Alison2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place. The best value we have seen anywhere so far on our travels on the north island. An entire guest unit at a very good price. Richard provided some tips on places to see in area and farther north.

    Johann2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Richard's home is a perfect spot to stay up north. He is incredibly friendly and hospitable. You can see the sun rise over the horizon, and it's beautiful. I would definitely return!

    Sean2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We thought we were booking a room and got an entire apartment just for us! It was great for us, especially because we arrived late and still wanted to cook. So we didn't bother anyone and Richard was still so attentive to give us a lemon for the fish. He is very personable and attentive. We really enjoyed our privacy and the nice contact with him too!

    Tina2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is our 2nd stay with Richard. Wish we had booked more nights in the beginning as this bnb has gotten very popular. The home is very clean and comfy and we would stay again.

    Janet2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is really fantastic. You have everything you need and much more. The house is huge and really clean and tidy. Richard is a wonderful host, he is always friendly and laughing. We instantly felt home. I would give 6 stars if I could. The price is unbeatable. Thank you very much for having us, wishing you all the best

    Moritz2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • GOOD VALUE. The unit is new and of high quality. The bed is extremely comfortable (firm mattress), the living room is a bit minimal but very functional. Richard is laid back and welcoming. He made us feel at home while providing us total privacy. The beaches were a short drive away. Great place for a short stay!

    Kara2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Richard was friendly and welcoming when we arrived. The place is beautiful clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Communication was great and we really appreciated being able to check in ,in the morning. We had a great time in the area and will definately recommend to others

    This north facing, 2 acre property boasts one of the most spectacular views in Northland. The entire 33m length of the North face is floor to ceiling windows and every room in the house opens out onto one of the largest decks in Mangawhai. The home is an entertainer's dream and the entire middle third of the house opens up for great indoor/outdoor flow on warm summer evenings. NB: For groups of over 6 adults please enquire first. Refer to 'Other things to note' for details on linen.
    You will enjoy cooking in the lovely kitchen or on the large new BBQ on the deck. The gorgeous rural outlook is forever changing with the daylight and the weather and then continues out over to the famous Mangawhai sand dunes, the Head itself and even over the famous Tara-iti Golf Course to the Pacific Ocean where the Hen and Chicken islands in the background complete this gorgeous, world class vista. Sit in the spa and soak up the beautiful views. From the property it is under 2 minutes drive to Mangawhai Village, 5 minutes to Tara-iti golf course (reputed to be one of the top 100 courses in the world!) and only a few minutes drive to Te Arai beach via Black Swamp entrance or the famous Te Arai Point surfers' mecca. A few more minutes by car and you can get to the north of Pakiri Beach or Mangawhai surf beach. The house is ideal for 2-3 families with enough space for everyone to stretch out and relax and being pet friendly and with wifi there's simply no way to beat the Glass House as the perfect getaway. Come and see for yourself this truly unique holiday experience.
    Mangawhai is the perfect summer holiday destination or coastal retreat. With its beautiful swimming and surf beaches and abundant marine life, Mangawhai is a popular spot for sailing, fishing, surfing, diving and summer family fun. The clear waters of the estuary provide safe family swimming, and the secluded white sand beaches of Te Arai and Pakiri are a short drive away. Enjoy the vibrant art and cafe scene, local farmers market and the famous Bennetts Chocolate Shop. Soak up the natural beauty of this slice of coastal paradise, beachcombing, bush walking or just relaxing in a comfy chair with a glass of something cool.
