We stayed in the downstairs one bedroom apartment. Very adequate. Lovely owners who are very welcoming. Central location to get around Mangawhai and Heads. Our room was set up for disabled access. Quiet spot

You stayed in the Par 3 Apartment which as you mentioned does not have a sea view as it is disability accessible. Upstairs we have 2 B&B rooms which do have sea views but are not... More

Stayed two nights. Good TA reviews fully justified for this small gem. Very comfortable and clean rooms most (as far as we could see) with access to balcony with excellent views. Quiet, away from fairly busy main road but short walk to all restaurants etc in Mangawhai (there aren't that many!!) Very helpful host, good breakfasts...what more can you ask.

We spent 4 days/nights at this wonderful lodge over the New Year period. The view from our room/balcony was awesome! We stayed in one of the BB rooms (Clipper) which was super comfortable (loved the king bed) and we had our own private bathroom just across the hallway. Jeanette the owner/hostess was a delight & was very helpful with recommendations... More

I decided that I needed to take my fiancé and I for a rare night away from our little boy for some couple time. Grandparents are fabulous at being able to drop off your precious bundle and escape reality for a night. We couldn't really go to far from home as we had a wedding to attend the next day.... More

We had a lovely overnight stay at this B&B. Lovely, bright rooms with amazing views. Very clean and very good breakfast. Will stay there again. Jeanette was very friendly and couldn't have done any more to help us make the most of our visit - even letting us watch the All Blacks beat France with our breakfast!

Our room had two bedrooms and a nice lounge and kitchen. The property had recently been maintained and the whole place looked in great condition. Sitting on the huge terrace was magical at any time of day and perfect for a sun downer. We were comfortable and really enjoyed our stay, travelling out by car but you could walk down... More

The best thing is the wrap around terrace with fantastic views.... More

This is the first time we have stayed in a bed and breakfast so we were wondering how it would work out. Answer, fabulous. Jeanette, the owner is a wonderful hostess and as other reviewers have noted she is most knowledgeable about the area where she has lived since 1980. The lodge is an old house that has been refurbished... More
