Our room was very comfortable and Jill had red roses and a bottle of wine to celebrate this special day. A nice touch. They suggested good restaurants in Napier then... More

Very comfortable rooms, one had a sweeping view of the Bay. Hosts were very welcoming, and provided a delicious home made breakfast. Walking distance to restaurants and cafes. The house would sleep two couples comfortably and has lock up garage

Jill and Allan are the most welcoming hosts ever! Nothing is too much trouble, we were even offered lifts into town each night. The rooms are lovely and thoughtfully prepared, including home made cookies and a very nice bottle of wine. Breakfast was delicious and the location is stunning!

Jill and Allan certainly know how to please guests. Great location, clean, bright, comfortable. Their attention to detail is spot on. Breakfasts are fresh and delicious with Jill's home-made preserves a highlight. Their approach is warm and welcoming but not overbearing. It's friendly and relaxed. Highly recommend this place.
