We stayed here in the first week of Jan 2021. Richard and Neil were amazing hosts - the place was styled beautifully with such attention to detail. The views from the deck are amazing (great for happy hour or coffee). We found the location to great - we walked to the Mangonui shops every day (we are in our 50's) as well as doing day trips all around the far north. We took our boat out fishing (the boat ramp is at the bottom of the street) and went swimming in several of the nearby beaches. We would definitely recommend this place and will be back!
