About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 9)

CREATE LIFE-LONG MEMORIES The iconic holiday at the beach - togs, towel, family and friends, games on the beach and sand angels and sandcastles, balmy evenings, laughter, conversations and good food . . .

This private, beach front family bach offers all this with the beach on the doorstep, and spacious indoor and outdoor areas to relax and enjoy. The "ranch slider" glass doors open to the front and side deck which gets the morning/early afternoon sun and the brick courtyard at the back gets that late afternoon/evening light: BBQ around the stone circle. And the outdoor bath in twilight/moonlight - under the olive tree, gazing out at Fairy Bay - bliss!

Large, comfy sitting room - chairs, divans, bean bags and cushions. Lots of board games, books, radio and CD player, fridge and freezer.

The sea is safe for swimming, okay for fishing (possible to launch a boat), and the reef immediately in front of the bach provides hours of exploring both in rock pools and with mask and snorkel at low tide. The wide, long sandy beach is great for walking and playing games.

And in winter, enjoy that Hawke's Bay clear, crisp weather with crunchy nights snuggled by the fire, and beach-combing and playing under the blue skies by day. And in those raging storms, play board and card games and read books by the fire, adventuring out into the wild once a day, gumbooted and dressed like yetis ... and then the hot bath with a book!

3 COMFORTABLE BEDROOMS (double bedroom, bunk room with bunks and single bed, and back bedroom with a single and a small double), 2 divans in the sitting room, and then there's Bella, the wee red caravan with a double foam mattress bed which is rusting away but everyone loves it (summer use only recommended!).

The kitchen is simple but has a good old oven and range of pots and pans - everything you need to turn out a first class meal! The nearest town is Waipawa, a 40 minute drive, so stock up on food and have enough petrol for a return trip!

Wonderful stay.

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful stay. wonderful beach. Sadly I didn't not look forward to night time...my hubby and I both have bad backs and could not sleep on any of the beds. But, we did enjoy our days, the kids adored it and it was super clean on arrival and I made sure it was super clean for the next guests.

We just absolutely loved it there, especially the awesome out door shower, the beautiful trees and it was the perfect spot to view the sea. A lovely private section. We wished we could have stayed much longer!

Beautiful beach, good privacy at bach nice views, amazing outdoor shower, was a bit untidy and cluttered, but what you'd expect with doing your own cleaning. Would love to stay again!

I had never been to Mangakuri Beach before.

  • 4 of 5

I had never been to Mangakuri Beach before. It was easy to get to, beautiful and private. The cottage was really cosy and warm, we loved it and felt really relaxed and rested. Loved the outdoor shower and the lambs playing on the fields/hills at the back. We are keen to go back in summer and stay for longer if we can.
