Enjoy stunning views out to the Hen and Chicken islands from our expansive front decks, explore and fish in the estuary in front of our house or be as active as you like enjoying the many and varied activities Magical Mangawhai has to offer. You may just wish to sit by the outdoor fire with a book or a drink relaxing as you prefer. Or curl up inside and catch up with your favourite series on Netflix and watch a variety of movies from our library on Apple TV.
