Moanarua is a lovley cottage only a short stroll to gorgeous Ohope Beach (closer to the Port end of the beach). But what made our stay really wonderful was meeting Miria and Taroi - a delightful couple we felt such a connection with. Miria's home made pickles and jams were generously served at welcome drinks, which would have easily turned into an all-night catch up if we hadn't booked dinner reservations. They are equally interested and interesting, with a youthful vitality that is inspiring. Moanarua is a cosy weekend retreat, but the real joy is in connecting with these real kiwi gems.

A beautiful place to relax and unwind. Miria and Taroi are amazing hosts and have created a haven. A real sense of wairuatanga and calmness throughout my stay. Great day on the boat and paddling in the harbour. Thank you for your manaakitanga.

We had a lovely break at Moanarua hosted by Miria and Taroi. The breakfast plums alone deserve a five star review. Ohope Beach is a wonderful location to unwind and Miria and Taroi will ensure that your stay is everything you need it to be.

Moanarua is a unique holiday expereince. If you are looking for a holiday where you want to relax or recharge in a fabulous location with amazing hosts. The manaakitanga and wairuatanga that Miria and Taroi have created makes this an experience rather than just a place to stay. The cottage is lovely, the bed really comfortable and extas like a beach umbrella, beach towels, body boards and sunloungers made our stay really comfortable. The breakfast is great, especially with Miria's hmemade jams and marmalade. We were also treated to stewed rhubarb and produce from their garden. Ir you are looking for a stay where you can just "breathe out" this is the place for you. We also did the sunset cruise with Taroi amd Miria which was very informative and great fun. We cannot recommend Moanarua highly enough!

A very short walk in one direction gets you to the main beach. The cottage supplied a beach umbrella, beach towels and a body board for use so we were set! A very short walk in the other direction gets you to the beach inlet...also beautiful. Miria and Taroi were wonderful hosts and probably the most hospitable hosts we've met on our travels.

Moanarua was a delightful and unique spot to relax on the last days of our road trip. Just a few steps from beautiful Ohope Beach the cottage is clean, cosy and full of character. Miria and Taroi certainly make you feel at home. They happily share their vast local knowledge, culture and hospitality. Breakfast is a treat with many of Miria’s homemade jams, chutneys and fruits to enjoy. We recommend you give it a try!
