We've stayed here now three times in total, and will go back again as soon as we're in the area. We love the easy charm of the accommodations and the beautiful location and wonderful views, you are right in nature but it seems easy and simple. Jean and Yancee are lovely hosts and quite a delight to chat with.

I love the pool the most - those magnificent views in total privacy, and the tennis court is fun and needs to be play on. The potager garden and Jean's fresh produce were an unexpected bonus and a great accompaniment to the extensive deli foods available in Maunguawhai, definitely worth a visit in itself, the beaches are totally lovely and the golf course is in top condition and quite challenging. I was happily surprised by the number of excellent cafes (great cakes!) in the area too, and the cheese at Puhoi was a must. So much to do in such proximity! It's another reason why we keep going back.

Anyhow, we love the area and staying at the Manor, and hope...
