Amazing property! We had a wonderful time, it was very clean and beautifully furnished. Loved the added bonus of homemade chutneys and pickles! We even managed to get some fresh season fejoas! The secluded beach was so much fun - my daughter loved the kayaks, paddle boarding and exploring the estuary. Great communication, wonderful inviting hosts :) Will most definitely be back!

We loved our stay in this very cute little house, lovely linen, books and games. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Well equipped kitchenette with everything I needed to spoil my (adult) kids with a roast chicken dinner! As others have mentioned, we loved the iPod provided and really appreciated the kayaks and paddle boards to explore the estuary.

Amazing little haven! We had a wonderful time, it was very clean and exceptionally furnished (super comfy couch) and so close to the water - kayaks at high tide are unbeatable. Super relaxing and just what we needed. Great communication and of course an awesome host :) Will most definitely be back!

We have been lucky enough to have travelled to some amazing places around the world with our three sons over the years. We have finally settled in Auckland and love living in this city. We also love the beach and live between our Auckland home and our beautiful 4 acre haven on the estuary in Mangawhai, 1.20min drive on the north east coast. Favorite pastimes - art, movies, music, travel, sport and food.
