Welcome to your getaway. An expansive, lush property bordered by a stream and native trees with an extensive garden where you are welcome to wander and sit. A private and peaceful Hot Tub area is available for your use. "Southwind" is a small rural property surrounded by farmland and other lifestyle blocks. We are 15 mins drive on sealed roads to amenities in both Mangawhai and Wellsford and 8 mins to the Te Arai surf beach turnoff.

The space
For your enjoyment, we have recently added a private BBQ area with an outdoor lounge suite, shaded by a pergola.
As this is our home our guests are welcome to socialise or we will respect your preference for privacy.

We have an additional bedroom with ensuite and new queen bed, with access from the main deck if required. This carries an additional charge. Please send an " enquiry " for further information.
