About this Holiday House

• Absolute waterfront • Private retreat ideal for keen fishermen • Historical building at Parengarenga Harbour This historical private retreat is nestled on the shores of the magical Parengarenga Harbour, Mangrove Bach is one of Northlands best kept secrets according to former guests! Mangrove Bach is the perfect getaway for friends, family and keen fishermen. Full of character and charm, Mangrove Bach is an open plan bach with cottage décor and exposed native timber interior throughout. A shower over a nice deep bath is there to relax in at the end of the day; the flush toilet is outside in a separate shed. The Bach sleeps 5 people in 3 bedrooms and full linen and towels are supplied for your stay. Mangrove Bach is positioned in an excellent location, placed beautifully for maximum sun. Step from the bach to the water to swim, fish, collect oysters or launch your boat with a 4 wheel drive. Boat access is at high tide only in front of Mangrove Bach. The channel is approximately 500 metres at low tide which guests can walk to. Enjoy the company of the local ducks and chickens who like to visit. Please Note: The key for the Te Pua boat ramp is no longer available. Enjoy the Far North sub-tropical weather with some of the best fishing spots in the north nearby.

We have stayed in a lot of holiday houses in NZ and overseas and this would rank as one of the worst places we have stayed. Firstly we arrived in the afternoon after travelling all day with a chilli bin full of food to find that the TV was on but the fridge and freezers were unplugged and warm (despite the Bach being booked out prior to our stay). A mouse ran out from behind the freezer and there was a dead mouse under one of the beds. The place was superficially clean (floors, bench tops) but otherwise very dirty. There was an dreadful smell in the kitchen coming from one of the cupboards above the bench that we were too scared to open. This smell worsened during our stay. The oven was good but using the stovetop was unsafe as soot and other dirty lumps would fall from the chimney into the pots. The beds were uncomfortable and the lower bunk bed stunk of sweat. On the upside, the views were nice and this was a tranquil place but we won’t be returning.
