We loved staying here.The owners couldn't be more helpful. The kayaks and spa pool were an added bonus. The beds are really comfortable. The balcony was spectacular. I definitely recommend it for a family trip to Northland, close to loads of beautiful beaches.

A quietly tucked away slice of paradise, By the Bay Beachfront Apartments (Mangonui) were the perfect base for us to explore Cape Reinga. Very clean and well-appointed we would love to have had a longer stay - the beachside location, spectacular views and proximity to all that Doubtless Bay has to offer makes these apartments a destination we'd thoroughly recommend....

By the Bay Beachfront was a perfect place to stay with our twin boys (12 years old). Alan (host) was so nice to us. There were kayaks to use on the bay, and our boys were able to go fishing with some surf-casters that Alan found for us. The apartment was well appointed, and warm. Heaps of towels for the... More

We loved the Studio apartment we stayed in. The Kitchenette was perfect, we cooked breakfast every morning and ate on the deck. The view is wonderful and we were very lucky with the weather, after all June is a winter month but we were in the winterless north. By the Bay Beachfront Apartments are well kept, clean. The grounds are... More

Having never been to that part of the country we were uncertain as to where to stay. After some online research we chose By the Bay and weren't disappointed! The facility was very clean and well maintained. The studio apartment we stayed in was perfect and the bed quite comfortable. The easy access to the beach was a nice convenience.... More

Mangonui is now my home. Our stay at By The Bay was our 1st introduction to Doubtless Bay. Mary and her husband were welcoming, accommodating, very helpful & we were made to feel like family. The level of comfort in the rooms is luxurious, huge beds, quality linen, leather couches, & the view soothed the soul. Top End Accommodation when... More

The apartments were spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The view was literally breathtaking. What topped it off for us was the treatment we received from our wonderful hosts, Alan and Mary. We honestly felt like long lost friends. We will definately be back.

We were two couples staying a few nights. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and had great views across the bay, the sounds of the sea a balmy accompaniment. The beach was only a short walk across the lawn, although it was a bit too cold to swim when we were there in autumn, but we did take the canoes... More
