Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
We are proud to announce that we now have another unique airbnb experience to offer. Our trusty Dorothy has been lovingly restored and fitted out ready for you to come and stay. She's a 1968 Bedford bus now residing under cover on our land; 11 acres in the shadow of the Brynderwyns, 5 minutes from beach and easy reach of the markets, shops, cafes and restaurants but in a quiet and peaceful location.
The bathroom is a separate structure with a flushing toilet and hot shower with great pressure.

The space
Dorothy is a house bus that has travelled extensively in New Zealand. She's now retired (she still runs, so maybe that could change!). The layout works well with a lounge area at the front, kitchen in the middle and bedroom at the back. The bathroom with flushing toilet and great shower is a separate structure which is under cover next to the bus.

Guest access
There's plenty of room in the paddock to relax in. We are currently working on some tracks in the regenerating bush which you are welcome to explore.

Location

Mangawhai, Northland, New Zealand

Dorothy the bus is tucked away under cover in the beautiful New Zealand countryside, but is within close reach of both the town and beach (a short 5 minute drive from the main surf beach and 10 minutes from town). The surf beach offers great spots to swim and surf as well as many beautiful walks such as the world renowned Mangawhai Cliffs Walk. At the near-by estuary you can hire paddleboards and kayaks. There are also many other beaches near by (such as Te Arai Point or Waipu) which are ideal for day trips.

Mangawhai Heads and Mangawhai Town are the two 'hubs' of the area. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and cafes in each as well as a museum, world renowned skatepark and 'activities zone', several markets and wineries. We have provided a small handbook that includes our recommendations for restaurants and take out places (as well as copies of their menus). We also provide road maps, tourist information and recommendations for other activities in the area.
