Mangawhai Heads is an hour and 15 minutes north of Auckland. We have a new house with an excellent location. Less than 5 minutes walk to the harbour and a 600m walk to Mangawhai Heads shops (cafes, restaurants, 4 square etc). A few minutes drive to beach. It's great for families as we have a large outside covered deck with space for children to play and a park is a minute walk away!
