Wow, this is one of the best places you can stay if you are looking for some peace and quiet and a no frills good old fashioned Kiwi holiday. This house is just right in terms of size for our family of four. We had ample space to park our boat and its walking distance to the boat ramp so its was very convenient. It is tucked away so its quiet yet you can walk down to the next bay and get a coffee or pop into a restaurant or pub. We loved it so much we lost track of time and every day seemed like a new adventure. Highly recommend both the house and hosts.

If it is luxury you are looking for, this is not the place for you. Settlers Dream is a classic Kiwi bach, with outside toilet to boot (it is only a short step out the back door, under cover). However it is in a good location and has great views over the bay. It is cosy and has all the amenities you need. We spent five nights there in October 2018 and loved our stay. Sitting on the deck in the evening with a wine/beer is a great way to end a day exploring the area. If we return Mangonui we will certainly look at staying there again. Sandra & Dave, Christchurch

The bach is in a good location with plenty of off-street parking. However, we were disappointed to find that the toilet is actually outside of the cottage. This has been deliberately withheld in the description of the bach, although it is a very important point. It is quite an inconvenience to get dressed and go outside to use the toilet if you need to go in the middle of the night, as you can be seen by the neighbours. The deck is in dire need of water blasting to remove accumulated grime.
