References: "Wonderful, large home with gorgeous views of the heads. Great for a big extended family like ours and plenty to entertain the kids - big and little! … darts were a huge hit! Thanks so much for a great weekend and being so accommodating Carolynn!" Hannah 10/20 "Perfect stay for a big group of people. Very clean, beautiful views, the spa was a perfect luxury and we enjoyed our stay very much. The beach In walking distance isn't perfect for swimming so we drove to the main beach which takes about 5-10min. Great adventure park nearby to keep the kids occupied. A great holiday home in a beautiful location." Anne-Sophie 10/20 "Fantastic house, fantastic location and water views, fantastic hosts! Really enjoyed our stay. Huge house (we had two families staying and appreciated the extra space and separation of bedrooms and living) with everything you could possibly need and lovely decor / touches. Hosts very helpful and friendly. We would love to stay again." Jane 06/20 "Big house with lot of facilities and near to a magnific estuary. We had a great time with our children there, espacially during the lockdown time!" Eva 03/20 "We just had a magical weekend at Mangawhai staying with family. The Bach exceeded our expectations the views were amazing and location perfect. It was spotless and has everything needed for your stay. If you need somewhere to stay with a large group I would highly recommend. We hope to be back at Mangawhai soon." Sarah 01/20 "The house at Mangawhai Heads exceeded our expectations. So beautifully presented, comfortable and had so many features which made our stay there very enjoyable - wish we had a bit longer! Carolynn was a great host, very responsive, friendly and helpful with tips on the location. I can highly recommend this lovely house." Evy 01/20 "A very lovely house with many extra touches, extremely well equipped kitchen and plenty of beds for nine of us. Very nice linen and bathroom accessories. The view is spectacular." Hilary 11/19 "We were travelling as 3 families and this was a great place for us - plenty of different living spaces so that we could all spread out and lovely to have the spa and darts etc for rainy days. Fabulous views of the estuary and dunes." Caroline 09/19 " Just a message to thank you most sincerely for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home at Mangawhai Heads – December 23 to 26. So spacious and just right for the young, and not so young. We all enjoyed every minute – thank you. " December 2017 " Hi carolynn we love love love the batch! It is so beautiful and big! So perfect for all of us! We have LOVED it! Your house has been perfect for all of us, just beautiful and the view is just magnificent. Everyone got a room and the boys had fun playing the games. We have all been talking about coming back in summer..." Leigh, July 2017 " It is absolutely amazing! Better than I could've expected ?? Thank you!..." Natasha July 2017 We all feel it was all great and can't really think of what else you could be expected to do Smile emoticon We loved watching the sun rise from your dining room window seat, we loved the log fire, we loved the two living areas - both with TVs - to give some space from the children at times, which made it all feel relaxing for the adults. The kitchen was VERY well equipped and the Games table and darts were a hit! Beds very comfortable and great not to have to bring linen and towels. Great too, to have soap at the basins and in the showers. ... Thank you both, we will be back! Sue and Families July 2016

Gorgeous accommodation. Had everything we needed for our team time Matariki weekend stay. The house had lots of space nooks catering for group gatherings and alone space when needed. The accommodation location was fab - close to local areas, beach and other facilities. Carolynn and Allen are wonderful hosts. We would stay here again. Highly recommended.

This is such an amazing house! The photos truely don’t do it justice, and exceeded our expectations upon arrival. We all enjoyed the space, comfort, location and most certainly the views. The house is well equipped with everything you need, so you can be sure if you forget something they’ve thought of it and it’s in the house. Carolynn and Alan are wonderful hosts and it was such a pleasure to be able to stay in this house. We cannot wait to be able to stay here again sometime. Thank you so much for having us, you have a beautiful home and made our stay so comfortable
Response from Owner
Kirsten thank you for your lovely, kind comments! Happy to have you return anytiime. Cheers Alan and Carolynn
What a beautiful house! This was one of the best holidays we have had! We were a group of 5 couples plus babies and this house suited us perfectly! House is equipped with everything you will ever need, plus a stunning view, large bedrooms, great entertainment with the shrimp shack, 2 lounges and a spa! The house is massive! We were spread out enough we didn't feel like we were on top of each other, and the house has this lovely warming cosy feel to it! I can't wait to plan our next trip and stay here again! Thank-you so much for your lovely hospitality, we really enjoyed our stay! :)
