Overview

Photos and Description of this Mangawhai Heads holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Solid stucco 1950's style holiday home with polished rimu wooden floors.

Two double bedrooms with comfortable king sized beds and a third smaller bedroom with one set of comfortable bunks.

The house has a good sized kitchen and lounge and a special holiday feel, perfect for summer - a traditional 'kiwi bach'.

It has spectacular, unobstructed views of the estuary, sand dunes and ocean beyond. You can even see when the surf is up when lying in bed looking out the window or when sitting on the couch! You can check out the surf too!

Lovely sunny north facing deck. Being an elevated waterfront/clifftop section, there is direct access to a lovely sandy safe estuary beach via steps situated just a few metres along from the house.

Million dollar location handy to shops, cafes, first class 18 hole golf course and boat launching facilities with a flat 880 sq. m. site for ample off street car and boat parking.

BBQ and outdoor furniture also provided and freeview TV.

Special conditions:

Xmas/New Year/January period $280 per night or $250 per night for stay of two weeks or more.

Other statutory long weekend/public holidays $220 per night. Two night minimum stay.

Cleaning can also be arranged at $100.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

Spot is idyllic overlooking estuary.

  • 2 of 5

Spot is idyllic overlooking estuary. Easy access. Handy to shops. Bach is small. 2 king size beds in single rooms accessible only from one side of the bed. 3rd bedroom with 2 bunks is tiny, directly off the kitchen, and has no door. 2 ancient bbqs filthy and unusable. Bach is fresh and clean & all other facilities fine. Owners unhelpful over BBQ. Lack of BBQ extremely annoying as we rely on that for summer cooking. Owners should either replace BBQ or remove description from site

Owner's Response: Very upset by your feedback. I was so helpful and so polite about the kiwi bbq that works perfectly and the previous tenants the day prior had said it was great. We offered to drive up to show you how it worked and politely offered a full refund if you wanted to depart and move elsewhere. Not very fair feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay though apart from the bbq.

The location was fabulous, beach right on your doorstep and really close to the little town centre!

  • 4 of 5

The location was fabulous, beach right on your doorstep and really close to the little town centre! The house was as described, a kiwi bach. However, the bach wasn't particularly clean and needed a quick once over to make it respectable. There was also no door on the kids bedroom, which made bedtime a bit tricky especially as the bedroom is right next to the living room and kitchen. Saying that we loved our stay and for the price, location and overall holiday feel would definitely go again.

Owner's Response: Hi Carol. The cleaner had been in an hour before you arrived so sorry it wasn't cleaned. Can you send me a note or another text with more details as I will raise with our cleaner directly as this is the first I had heard of this. Many thanks

The location is amazing.

  • 4 of 5

The location is amazing. Great view, easy access to water and easy stroll to shops. Beds very comfortable. Cleanliness not so great, we had to clean the dishes and cutlery before we could use them. As it says leave house as found it depends on who stays before you I guess. A real kiwi Bach experience for our overseas visitors!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views, great location, although you're surrounded, the bach is set back a little and you've heaps of space and shade under the big Flame tree. The short trip over the estuary to the ocean beach was well worth it - incredible terrain you get to cross and then an empty beach, white sand and crystal water. The bach itself is what it says on the tin, an old kiwi classic. Perfect for a relaxed weekend get-away.
