We stayed 2 nights . Such a gorgeous spot with a huge picture window over looking the bay. So close to the water you could hear the waves lapping at night. Owners were helpful and kind and our room was at a budget price. An older style motel room with all the comforts of home. Manganui is a heritage village on the north island coast Within walking distance was the famous Manganui fish shop. Thankyou Lonely Planet! .
