On 10 May 2015, we stopped over In Havelock North to see a friend working in the hospital. Arrived late in night but Di had prepared the Cottage No: 3 for us after we called to inform her. We love the location with all the animals and plenty of apple trees in the vicinity.

I am from the U.S. and have stayed at the cottages 5 or 6 times now. I love the place. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area. You are local to Havelock, Hastings, and a very short drive to Napier. Di is the best host and will go out of her way to take care of you. And...the cottages... More

Thank you Di, for welcoming us once again to your wonderful place. The cottage was just as good as our first trip in April 2014. Di has ceased doing breakfasts, but as we were unaware of that, she quickly rounded up some cereals and jams and fresh milk and bread for us. Very kind. The animals here are so cute.... More

Very pleasant hosts and a very beautiful setting. The 3 bedroom cottage was very spacious and very equipped. The only suggestion would be to get a new kettle (very calcified). Would definitely recommend 😊 as close to all ammenities.

Arrived a fraction late. Popped in to introduce myself to Di and John, when they invited me for dinner and a few drinks while the cricket was on. I was blown away by how welcoming and inviting they both were. Easily the best stay I've had in any accommodation travelling with work. Definitely recommend this to anyone passing through Hawkes...

Just had our family reunion here and we could not have wished for a better place. Fabulous location - great surroundings and terrific hosts. Very clean cottages and well equipped. Would recommend to anyone.

I had a wonderful experience staying at Cottage on St Andrews when I visited NZ recently for a friends wedding. Beautiful accomodation, wonderful hosts, a short walk to town. Nothing was too hard, Di and her husband were so helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this accomodation, for single travellers or families.

Such a beautiful relaxed spot that caters for everyone. We have 2 small kids who loved the pool, playground, ride on toys and animals. We were referred to a babysitting service by the Host which was amazing. So while the Cottages are family friendly you can access trained childcare professionals to look after your children and then you can take... More

This accommodation was perfect for my family of 12. We had cottage 1 and 4 for 4 nights. We had young children who were fully entertained with the facilities provided eg pool, park, ride on toys. It was close to the main shopping area and the family enjoyed strawberry picking around the corner. We hosted the day after wedding BBQ... More

This was our first stay at Cottages on St Andrews. The studio was lovely. It had everything that we needed. The location was great as we were going to a wedding in Havelock North and were in walking distance of the venue. We loved the animals in the nearby paddocks especially the alpacas. We would definitely stay here again.
