Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I stumbled on the waterfront apartments in mangonui just by a lucky break. It made our holiday. Daniel the owner and Erica the manager could not have been more helpful. The apartments are very clean, well appointed and in the best position located close to shops, restaurants, galleries and supermarket and are reasonably priced for the area and amenities. We stayed in a queen room and also the front apartment which is spacious and right on the waterfront. The weather was stunning so we ordered neaeby takeaway pizza and sat on the balcony with a lovely bottle of wine. Perfect! We highly recommend these apartments and hopefully will be back! Thankyou Daniel.

My love of old brought us to this accommodation. When hubby showed me photos of where we would be staying I was thrilled! We chose the apartment 'Tahi' for our 5 nights and I loved pottering around in my little home away from home. With the option of 2 great outdoor areas I had my coffee watching the sun come up on the balcony and a wine in the arvo on the sunny private deck. The well equipped kitchen allowed me to cook a roast dinner and the dishwasher took care of the dishes while hubby watched tv from the comfortable couch. This apartment had a wee hallway that lead to the bathroom and large double bedroom, as an early riser I loved being able to close the passage door so that hubby's sleep wasn't disturbed. Our hostess Erika was on hand with plenty of local knowledge, suggestions of where to visit and the best places to eat. No complaints about this place, just lovely memories.

Making things up as we go, not much choice in the area, drove into the carpark and met the owner/manager. He gave us a good rundown and allowed us to walkthru the apartment. His partner came to register us and also talked us over the great options around town. The room itself was fully stocked with kitchen equipment and utensils and the amenities are above average. Really happy with the choice, but the best part was at the end (or beginning ??), the sunrise…wow, totally east facing we got it all. Amazing. Thanks team you were great.

We enjoyed staying a night at the Waterfront Apartments in Mangonui following a day trip to Cape Reinga. Andrea was a lovely host who gave great travel advice and had great local knowledge. Our upper floor studio apartment was beautiful and had more than we needed for our nights stay but could see such potential for a longer holiday and it being a comfortable base for exploring the far north further. An added bonus was it was pet friendly too. TheWaterfront Apartments are situated in a great spot with cafes and gift shops etc just a short stroll away.

Mangonuu was a disappointment after Paihia. The Fish Shop was dreadful. We should have listened to advice and eaten at the pub. Accommodation was OK but average. Clean and comfortable. Host was helpful and friendly.

Opted for the Tahi, an excellent and proper one bed apartment with a large balcony accessed from the front room and the bedroom. It also included an excellent fully functional kitchen, dining area and bathroom. Situated in the heart of Mangonui with outstanding views and only a minutes walk from the rest of town. Debra our host was fabulous and we will definitely come again. Enjoy…….

When you book, be very picky about your apartment choice. The downstairs Wha apartment was ordinary and stuffy, disappointing for the price. No better than a motel. The Upstairs with balcony options are much better.

We recently had a one night stay...i love Mangonui and always have..hadnt been there for 15 years..i love the slow pace of life there...the owners were very helpful and even accommodated us with our huge big trailer for the night. Bed was very comfy...and there is ample room to sit around on the sofas or at the table by the kitchen. Totally recommend whenever you are up in that part of the country..

Visited 4 years ago but didn’t have long enough to do justice to the area, so very happy to return to the same accommodation (Tahi) - a perfect little flat with separate bedroom & 2 great sitting out areas. Beautifully located in the centre of Mangonui which is a destination in itself, walking distance to all local facilities & directly overlooking the water. Very clean, well equipped with good WiFi, shower, quality linen & black out blinds. Staff very helpful - a memorable second stay.

After the Covid lockdown we needed an escape and this place was exactly what we needed. Our apartment was extremely well equipped, very very comfortable, spotless with lovely soft furnishings. The view is beautiful, I could have sat for hours looking out across the water. The wifi was great, so much so that we were able to work and carry out on line meetings. The owner Daniel and all the staff are super friendly. they simply can't do enough for you. Loved being able to use the paddle boards and he is able to organise trips if needed, Daniel is great company and very knowledgeable about the area. And Tippy the dog, oh I just loved him. There are so many places to visit in the area, we easily filled a week and could have stayed longer. There are a couple of restaurants on the doorstep, definitely recommend the Thai, a well stocked supermarket is a 2 minute walk. Over the years I have planned trips for a number of overseas visitors and have often recommended this place based on their feedback, everyone loves it, I highly recommend it. I really hope to go back soon, it felt like a home from home. GO, you won't be disappointed
