Oceans 8 is a modern 3 bedroom plus rumpus room Mangawhai Heads holiday home directly opposite the walkway to the estuary. This spacious and relaxed holiday base is an excellent group option, with sunny outdoor living and sea views to the Hen and Chicken Islands!
This 2 storey Mangawhai Heads holiday home includes open plan living upstairs in the main house... wander out onto the wrap around deck, fire up the BBQ, and put your feet up with peaceful views. There is plenty of room for dining al fresco, or simply kick back and soak up the sun.
There is 1 bedroom upstairs in the main house at this Mangawhai Heads accommodation, fitted with a queen bed and an ensuite bathroom. Downstairs, bedrooms 2 and 3 are fitted with a double bed each. The rumpus room provides additional living space for your group, with 2 single bunk sets and a pullout couch to make up a queen sized bed (listed as sofa bed). A family bathroom downstairs, plus a toilet upstairs, complete the main house set up.
The separate Boathouse has been converted into a family friendly games room complete with table tennis, lounge style seating and music, perfect for those balmy nights or rainy days.
When you feel like heading out, the boat ramp is just down the road, and the Wood Street shops is an easy 5 minute walk for a choice of licensed cafes, restaurants and takeaways, including Four Square, pharmacy, fishing and tackle shop, service station and bookshop.
It is a short 2 minute drive to Mangawhai Heads surf beach.
For a laid back family getaway, head to Mangawhai Heads and enjoy Oceans 8!

A very enjoyable Easter stay. Excellent location and view, all day sun, close to everything. Big enough for 2 families with teenagers. Clean and well equipped. Hope to stay here again.

Such a nice place to stay, manager was wonderful and location was great. The wrap around balcony was such a great part of the property and really added to the experience. Would highly reccomend.
AllanStayed January 2021
Oceans 8 is the best holiday rental property we have stayed at. It is perfect for a large family in a great location close to the beach and the estuary. The facilities at the house with 3 double bedrooms, a large bunk room and large kitchen family room, the various outside decks and the games room for table tennis make this house hard to beat.
SueStayed January 2020
An excellent holiday house for a big family holiday. Backyard cricket, table tennis, drinks overlooking the estuary. A very clean and well set up bach. We loved it!
AllanStayed January 2020

EmmaStayed January 2020
Loved this place, would definitely recommend. Minutes walk to the very child friendly estuary and 10 mins walk to shops. Very clean and modern and loved how decked out it was, the owners have thought of everything..... even a games room if the weather turns.
DavidStayed October 2019
Great location to beach, some improvements required, left wondering - a little average for the higher price on a long weekend.
Thank you for your comments, David! We're glad you enjoyed Oceans 8's proximity to the beach and sorry that you felt that way after your stay - prices do sometimes need to adapt to demand and we always try to make sure they're set fairly and that our properties are maintained to meet our guests' standards. We'll look into your improvements suggestion!
AllanStayed May 2019
We have stayed here for 4 years in a row and keep coming back to this wonderful place. Has everything you need and is in a great location - a short walk to the beach and the shops.
PatStayed April 2019
