About this Holiday House

Please note for New Years bookings you must ENQUIRE first before booking as we have different requirements for this period. COVID-19 IMPACTED BOOKINGS: For any bookings that cannot proceed due to NZ government imposed COVID-19 domestic travel restrictions, we will be happy to credit the value of your booking to a booking for alternate dates or refund you in full where that is not possible. Classic kiwi bach with retro charm! When this house was built in the 70s it was the only bach in the area. The kids used to build huts in the bush, explored nearby sheep trails and ponds. Mangawhai has changed since then and the kids have grown up (and now they own the bach!) but the bach has had a makeover and extension whilst retaining its retro charm and awaits your visit. Built on a large section with lots of mature trees, the house is ideal for a summer holiday as the beach is only a short stroll down the road and the shops and cafes at Wood St are also a short walk. The bach also has a large selection of DVDs and books including some true classics to keep you entertained on rainy days or evenings. Notes: 1. Please note the garage/sleepout is a basic unlined aluminium garage so is cold in winter and can be quite warm in summer. 2. The bunk beds are more suited to children and the top bunk is definitely not suitable for adults due to weight rating. Mangawhai is the perfect summer holiday destination or coastal retreat. With its beautiful swimming and surf beaches and abundant marine life, Mangawhai is a popular spot for sailing, fishing, surfing, diving and summer family fun. The clear waters of the estuary provide safe family swimming, and the secluded white sand beaches of Te Arai and Pakiri are a short drive away. Enjoy the vibrant art and cafe scene, local farmers market and the famous Bennetts Chocolate Shop. Soak up the natural beauty of this slice of coastal paradise, beachcombing, bush walking or just relaxing in a comfy chair with a glass of something cool.

Terry
Beds are dreadful and old. The lounge suite is sagging and broken. The bedroom cupboard and bathroom cabinets are full of the owner's personal effects and there is no room for visitors items. There was no space for any groceries at all as all cupboards are filled with owners' personal effects. Hideously uncomfortable and totally unsuitable for renting to paying visitors. Very old house and should not be promoted by any responsible booking agency
Response from Owner
Thanks for your feedback but possibly your expectations were aligned to a hotel room rather than a basic kiwi bach? This fairly original kiwi bach is neat and tidy, priced accordingly and ratings of 4.3/5 and 4.25/5 on Bookabach and Airbnb respectively, show that normally people enjoy their stay. In response to your specific feedback, the beds are older but normally people find them comfortable. The owners are actually looking to invest in a new bed for the main bedroom but that is not because the current one is not adequate. The lounge suite is not broken, it is a softer style but it seems comfortable to sit on. Comfort is a very subjective thing and so possibly these things were just not to your taste. Your comments about the lack of space are valid and apologies for this. I have cleared space in the wardrobe shelves and the kitchen is not filled with personal items but kitchen equipment. I have asked the owners to remove some to create more space as it is limited and they will get up to do that very soon. Hopefully you will find you next stay in a Holiday Home more enjoyable but you may want to look at booking something of a higher level to cater to your needs.
