We stayed here for a week from boxing day 2015. It's an excellent get-a-way for those who want a little more luxury than standard hotel rooms. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment at the rear of the property, with a fantastic view of Mt Manaia from the lounge and deck. It's a very spacious, fully equipped apartment, with full... More

We originally only intended to stay for one night but ended up extending into 3 nights because we loved it so much. The studio was spacious, the beds are comfortable (boys had their own bunk beds) and the kitchen had everything we needed! Our host also had boogie boards and kayaks which our family really enjoyed. There is a lovely... More

We stayed in the Manaia apartment. It is a spacious two-bedroom apartment on top of the garage. You have excellent views in every direction, especially to Mt. Manaia and the Whangarei Bay. We never stayed in a place which was so nicely decorated, professionally equipped, and so spotless (no scars to be found on any wall or door). We slept... More

Very comfortable stay for 4 people with all the cutlery and equipment we needed. Close to the water and we got to use the kayaks too. (Careful when the winds out as it can get quite choppy in the water). Reasonably close to mountain bike trails, beaches and walks. Stunning views of mt manaia too. Would visit again.

Visited my uncle who stays here every year for three/four months to escape the worst of the UK weather and I can see why he does! Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. The setting is stunning, only a very short walk to the beautiful bay and the rooms are clean and very comfortable. I wish I could visit... More
