The property

The Retreat offers elevated panoramic views of the harbor, Sail Rock, and the Hen and Chicken Islands, only a short stroll down the driveway to the estuary and Mangawhai Village with all its attractions.  Enjoy exclusive views, tranquility, a high-end fit-out, and a comfortable rural setting. With a large wraparound deck at the drive-in level, recently refurbished to a high standard, it boasts air conditioning/heat pumps throughout, luxury bathrooms, and three king-size beds. The master bedroom delights in estuary views giving direct access through to the sunroom on the deck. The property features new high-end appliances, a work-from-home office space, Wi-Fi, a 65” TV, BBQ, and an outdoor shower. The main bathroom has incredible upper harbour and rural vistas. The 3-bay garage at the back provides indoor parking and all-weather BBQ cooking. There's a second fridge/freezer in the garage for drinks/food overflow, making it easy to cater for a big group. While there's plenty of parking, boat parking is tricky due to the elevation. The Retreat, styled with a modern Hampton's vibe, is ideal for a romantic getaway or a small extended family treat. Just 1km from the Village and a 5-minute drive to Tara Iti Golf and Ocean beach access road. Key local attractions include Bennetts Chocolate factory, The Dune Restaurant, Mangawhai Tavern, Saturday Village Markets and Mangawhai Butcher within walking distance. Further away are Mangawhai Golf Course, Te Arai Golf Links, Rick’s Cafe, Mangawhai Heads Surf Beach and Club, Mangawhai Club, and Lake Tomarata. The Retreat is your perfect base for relaxing, dining, local entertainment, beach days, golf and wedding events!

The property adjoins a working farm so there can be stock in paddocks beside the property from time to time (hence no pets please).

Please note that a surveillance camera at the front of the home will be operating for added security during your stay.

While occupants are welcome to have guests please note that the no parties policy is strictly enforced at this property.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
