Initially we though place was actually a little over our Budget but we still decided to give it a try. We were certainly not disappointed. There are 3 cottages available placed around a extremely well-kept and peaceful garden with a stylish fountain in the middle. The cottages themselves are big enough for 2 people and are decorated with great taste.... More

The well designed cottages (colonial style but with modern comforts) have everything you could need and overlook a beautiful, scented formal garden. As city apartment dwellers we loved being able to sit on the verandah and enjoy the fountain, roses, jasmine and birdsong; when it rained, we were able to sit and enjoy that too. The breakfast provisions were generous,... More

Wow, what a wonderful comprehensive review. Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay with us. I'm glad that you enjoyed the gardens and birdsong! Our location is ideal for visiting local attractions, quiet with being semi rural, but only 10 minutes from Napier/Hastings. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Kindest regards, Sandra More

Everything was just perfect from the moment we arrived. Comfortable and well-equipped cottage, cleverly designed to provide privacy within the larger shared grounds. Sandra (and her mum!) were delightfully friendly and welcoming, and extremely helpful and informative about things to do and see in the area. Bikes on site make it easy to pedal off on a tour of the... More

As an added bonus there was even a discount for the golf at Cape Kidnappers. We travel to Hawkes Bay a... More

We love the setting and tranquil atmosphere. Our 2 bedroom cottage was spotless and Sandra and Neil furnished our first breakfast with fresh eggs from the next door neighbor. We BBQ 2 nights and in the quiet night we could hear the Pacific Ocean only a block away. This was our favorite lodging on our 8 day tour of New... More

The units were well set up, very clean and spacious. The barbeque area was fantastic and works very well. Had a great social time, with good... More

An absolutely delightful place to stay. Immaculate inside the cottages, free wifi & best of all free citrus fruits from the trees. Close to some great wineries and only 20 mins from Napier. The owners are super friendly and helpful. It's the third time we've stayed here & again fantastic.

My second visit. It's a great place to stay. Friendly people, a beautiful location close to Napier and Hastings. Nothing beats sitting on the deck eating farm eggs on toast and a mug of tea, listening to the birds - best way to start the day!
