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.

Mangawhai Chalets are just gorgeous! The set up is fantastic, with really tasteful chalets set in a gorgeous courtyard garden and the well equiped kitchen and bbq facilities are available to all guests, which makes for a really nice sociable space.
The 4 square shop, restaurants and other shops are literally just around the corner - so convenient! The owners are a really lovely couple who are very welcoming and very child and pet friendly. The beds are very comfortable and even afforded us and our children (10 + 4) a very welcome lay in - a rare occurrence!!!!
We only had time for 1 night stay this time but we will definitely be back for a longer stay. Highly recommend!

Stayed one night for a party nearby. Great location close to shops. Owners were very friendly and took time to explain setup. Chalet itself is perfect; comfortable and clean with nice touches from the host like fresh milk provided and nice toiletries. We travelled with our baby and they provided a good cot with everything we needed.Excellent value for money and would definitely recommend.

Stayed here over a weekend. Great accommodation with a good set up. Comfy little chalets and a spacious communal kitchen and social area that has all the items you need for cooking or just relaxing. Good location, short walk to shops, handy to golf course too.
Would definitely stay here again.

We saw the photos online & really liked the look of this place including the King size bed with excellent quality doona & sheets.
The host’s Lindy & Stu are super friendly & helpful.
With the Clubhouse kitchen there we decided to eat in & could easily walk to supermarket from Chalet.

As soon as you arrived the warm welcome of the hosts made it so relaxing. Stu and Linda know how to do everything with excellence. Their attention to detail from local shells and lavender left in your room - a nice touch. I’d go back in a flash. Not too far to go from Auckland.

Room Tip: For eating out. Monday is not the best as a lot of restaurants aren’t open. Lots of take outs!

This was not our first choice for accommodation after a long, wet drive, but our friends couldn’t take us, so at 6 pm we set off looking for accommodation. We came across the Chalets, they could take us and we were SO grateful to find such a lovely, romantic place. It was simply the best: massive bed, great facilities and we were just grateful to find such a gem. Thoroughly recommend anyone to book here! Even if you see the ‘no vacancy’ sign outside as we did, it’s worth a phone call!

This is a stunning property. We stopped there on the way back from the far north of the country to Auckland. We wish that we had spent more time at this perfect location; plenty to explore in the area and, of course, relax in the chalet and its gardens.
This was truly a delight to stay there. We were greeted by both Stu and Linda , the owners , on the first evening. They couldn’t do more to help. The place is so well kept; great attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble for Stu and Linda. This was an amazing find and, as mentioned earlier, only wish we’d have stayed longer. We must come back. I would definitely recommend a trip to this part of the world and the chalets

Stayed for a couple of nights and wished we were staying longer! Fabulously friendly hosts, and adorable accommodation - very stylish and extremely comfortable cabin in the quaintest of courtyard surroundings. Round the corner from all shops and restaurants so very handy. Will definitely be back, and highly recommend! You won’t regret it! Looks exactly like the photos on the site!
