Set on the northern point of Britannia Bay (apparently among the best sites along this stretch of coastline) and less than 50m from the curling waves, Mangochi is a typical West Coast timber beach house - that rare breed of place where crayfish diving, mussel hunting and fishing is the order of the day. You can squeeze the most from it by coming prepared with a wetsuit and the necessary permits. Alternatively, kick off the slops, don your sarong and take a more laid back approach to your weekend - long beach walks with Fido (who happens to be welcome at Mangochi), the occasional brave dip in the freezing water, bird watching, a meal at a nearby eatery, are among the many options. Mangochi can sleep six in a total of three bedrooms, and is fully equipped, including linen and towels. There are 2 double beds and 3 singles beds. There isn't a fireplace but the shack is air-conditioned for both summer and winter - a luxury Robinson Crusoe had to do without. The general decor is casual and relaxed and befitting the setting. From the living area and deck there's a 180-degree view of the bobbing kelp and mussel-encrusted rocks below... and mom scampering about in search of dad's al fresco seafood lunch. If it's a hang loose, sand-between-the-toes weekend you've been day-dreaming about at work lately, Mangochi fits the bill perfectly.
