Green Hills Chalets

Green Hills Chalets

Mangawhai, Northland

Green Hills Chalets is a convenient 1.5-hour drive from Auckland - and only 10-minutes from Mangawhai Village in Northland.

Sleeping up to six guests, it's an ideal family-friendly and group rural escape.

There are two bedroom chalets, each with a queen-size bed and sofa bed. A central living cabin offers a communal gathering space - with a lounge, kitchen and bathroom. Decking boardwalks and steps seamlessly connect the individual spaces.

Surrounded by rolling green hills, you'll feel a long way from the hustle and bustle of city life.  Grab a few deck chairs and relax overlooking the two acres of gently sloping pasture. Head down to the secluded outdoor bath for a soak. Cook up a storm using the outdoor BBQ or pizza oven. Or cosy up with a blanket and glass of wine next to the brazier.

Green Hills Chalets is the perfect spot for a getaway with your loved ones. It offers peace and quiet, as well as rural beauty. And it's only 10-minutes away from the coastal beauty and activities on offer in the Mangawhai area.

    Communication was excellent, and the place was stocked up with everything we needed for a great stay. Even on the colder nights, they had heaters and a large supply of wood for the outdoor brazier, which was awesome.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in such a beautiful and peaceful setting. It was equipped with everything you need, and we enjoyed utilising the outdoor space with an outdoor bathtub, pizzas in the pizza oven, and toasting marshmallows on the brazier. The kids loved the expansive grass space to play. Such lovely and helpful hosts.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Green Hills Chalets. The highlights were the stunning hillside view and the outdoor bath and shower. Although we didn't get to use the brazier or pizza oven, they were wonderful additions. The chalets were equipped with everything we could have wished for, including yoga mats, delicious sourdough bread, local chocolates, and bath bombs. The cleanliness was impeccable, and Karen's efficiency and kindness made our stay even more enjoyable.
