I travel extensively and frequently and I must admit this has to rank in my top three best stays. Andy and Jenny are very welcoming and affable, without being intrusive. Andy even gave me a guided tour of a local Maori PA site and was full of information about the area. The quality of the accommodation, Food and Facilities all... More

We spent two days here and enjoyed our stay, the owners are very friendly and like to have a chat and can tell you all about the area. The breakfasts were very good and the complimentary bottle of bubbly on arrival was a nice touch. We didn't find it particularly private as the accommodation is very close to the owners... More

I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation and its hosts, they are knowledgeable in the local area and the accommodation is superb. The breakfast was delicious. Would defiantly go back. Highly recommend the famous fish and chip shop over the wharf at Mangonui.The beach at Cable Bay and the ice cream shop is well worth a visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relax and unwind come sit on the Blue Chair! Have your own private entrance - SKY movie channels, Spa pool and double hammock. Set in a relaxed sea-side community with cafes, restaurants and arts and crafts. A boat-ramp, vineyards and golf courses are in close proximity. A great all season base for exploring the beautiful Far North. Enjoy a day trip to Cape Reinga and 90 Mile Beach , visit historic sites and the ancient Kauri kingdom; charter a boat or fish from the beach, wharf or rocks. Gather shellfish from the beach at low tide, watch the dolphins, stroll along the 2km long beach. It has a "get-away from it all feel" and both national and international visitors have enjoyed their holidays at this coastal paradise. There are two airports within 45mins drive which link to Auckland International Airport. ... more   less
