We stayed in the downstairs one bedroom apartment. Very adequate. Lovely owners who are very welcoming. Central location to get around Mangawhai and Heads. Our room was set up for disabled access. Quiet spot

Stayed two nights. Good TA reviews fully justified for this small gem. Very comfortable and clean rooms most (as far as we could see) with access to balcony with excellent views. Quiet, away from fairly busy main road but short walk to all restaurants etc in Mangawhai (there aren't that many!!) Very helpful host, good breakfasts...what more can you ask.

We stayed in one of the BB rooms (Clipper) which was super comfortable (loved the king bed) and we had our own private bathroom just across the hallway.

I decided that I needed to take my fiancé and I for a rare night away from our little boy for some couple time. Grandparents are fabulous at being able to drop off your precious bundle and escape reality for a night. We couldn't really go to far from home as we had a wedding to attend the next day....

We had a lovely overnight stay at this B&B. Lovely, bright rooms with amazing views. Very clean and very good breakfast. Will stay there again. Jeanette was very friendly and couldn't have done any more to help us make the most of our visit - even letting us watch the All Blacks beat France with our breakfast!

This is the first time we have stayed in a bed and breakfast so we were wondering how it would work out. Answer, fabulous. Jeanette, the owner is a wonderful hostess and as other reviewers have noted she is most knowledgeable about the area where she has lived since 1980. The lodge is an old house that has been refurbished...
