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

We got stranded here during lockdown - how lucky were we?!?! It’s such a wonderful place to stay and we can’t wait to come back. We’ve recommended it to all our kiwi friends who now want to come and experience the Mangonui magic!! Daniel, Lavinia and Jasmine love helping guests to have a safe and enjoyable time. All the apartments are different and all have great character. The facilities are great and they’re spotlessly clean. There’s plenty to do locally, with lots of lovely walks from the apartments with no need for a car - as we discovered in Level 4. Short trips to a range of different and stunning beaches were a joy in Level 3 too. Stayed here 11 weeks and still didn’t want to leave!! Would recommend booking direct as all the apartments are different and they can help you choose.
