Set on a two-acre property of park-like gardens, Quail Retreat waits to host a romantic and restful escape to Mangawhai Heads.

Imagine waking up to the sound of native birdsong and being able to make your hot drink and wander the gardens to start your day. The surrounding eden has been carefully landscaped around the existing family orchard, and formally planted to enhance its scenery.

Bright and welcoming, Quail Retreat is a relaxed downstairs unit with two queen bedrooms and all the comforts of home, including Wi-Fi to keep you connected, and a heat pump that allows for comfort no matter the time of year.

The well-equipped kitchen and BBQ both ensure cooking up some tasty holiday dishes is a breeze. In summer, when it's time to tuck into your meal, head outdoors onto the patio, open the sun umbrella, and enjoy some alfresco dining.

On a clear evening, we recommend walking up to the viewing platform in the garden which overlooks the property and it's surroundings. This is the perfect way to end the day; sitting watching the sunset.

Soak up some sunshine from home, take a look at the onsite art gallery and shop, or head to the famous Mangawhai surf beach. It's less than a 10-minute drive to the beach for a day of fun in the waves, or perhaps to launch the boat for an adventure. There's space to park your boat here at Quail Retreat, ready for you to try a spot of fishing in the harbour.

Quail Retreat is in a great spot between Mangawhai Heads and the village and is just a five-minute drive from a range of cafes, restaurants and even the local pub. You're also close to Bennets Chocolates, a must-visit spot for a sweet treat! Whether you're spending the day at the beach, playing golf, or adventuring further around Northland, Quail Retreat has you covered.

A slice of holiday bliss awaits at the charming and serene Quail Retreat!
