Surfwatch Getaway Cottages Review

Perched high on the cliffs overlooking Mangamaunu Beach and just 10 minutes north of town, this extraordinarily pleasant property stands true to its name. Sea views run endlessly to the horizon, north and south; closer in you can watch surfers and NZ fur seals shooting the waves on one of the country's well-known surf breaks. Accommodations are in a private en suite room attached to the main house and a character-filled self-contained cottage, a bit back from the view, out in the garden. The hosts are expat Americans with a good local knowledge from many years in New Zealand.
