Mangrove Manor is beautifully and practically appointed, very clean, and with a nice central living area where home-made cupcakes were a feature each evening we were there. We stayed two nights at and it was lovely: hosts Ann and Peter could not have been more helpful, from providing recommendations and advice on driving routes, local sights and restaurants/cafes to providing wonderful breakfasts - the highlight of which was Ann's home made passionfruit yogurt. We had booked one room, but our 12 year old daughter was with us, so arrangements were made for us to stay in the closed off and private downstairs area which had a private bathroom and plenty of room for an airbed.
Mangrove Manor is on an access road to Coromandel town, but it's very quiet and the view towards the hills is a gorgeous NZ vista, especially at sunset. Location is fantastic - just a few minutes into the town and very close to route 309 to Hot Water beach and Cathedral Cove. The 309 is mostly unpaved and a little winding, but well worth the drive for its amazing views and kauri trees, and opportunity to buy local Manuka honey. Near the Coromandel end of the 309, we also had a fun encounter with a local (vegetarian) farmer and his collection of piglets, pigs, and chickens out for a stroll.
In all, a great experience!
