Come and unwind at Tara Retreat and relax in our self-contained studio. Wander through our gardens & pick your fresh salad to go with your BBQ. It is just two minutes' drive to Mangawhai Village and its Saturday morning market and is close to cafes, a golf course, lovely bush and coastal walks and many great beaches or kayak at the estuary. Bennetts chocolate factory or Te Whai Winery is a fave for visitors.
Tara Retreat is a developing and evolving glamping and eco accommodation space that includes the cottage where you can enjoy your own private deck, lawn space and loungers with a lovely local wine on the deck in the afternoon sun.
There is a microwave, convection oven, fridge, hot plates and condiments provided to do your own cooking at the cottage OR you can cook award winning meat from the local butcher in the shared communal BBQ area, where you can also play boardgames or meet new friends.
A caravan is available for an extra friend or two (double bed) or you can pitch a small tent too - a separate shower/toilet block is available for their use. See - https://www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/16650736?eluid=0&euid=c1364e82-18da-c01c-bb41-b922d3213409
