Our family had a 10 day stay at the beautiful Lawn Cottages. It was the ideal central location for visiting Napier, Hastings, Havelock North, and only 20 minutes from the glorious Ocean Beach. It is a family friendly place but each cottage is very private within the well kept property. The many pathways and ponds, complete with fish, kept the... More

Lawn Cottages was the perfect location for our Family Christmas. We hired all three cottages and Ski, Jackie and Meg (she the lovely black lab!!) were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The cottages were well appointed and we made use of the lovely gardens which were just stunning for sitting and relaxing with a book. All cottages had... More

We were traveling with a group of 12 adults and 2 children for a wedding. The Lawn Cottages were perfect for our group. We rented all 3 cottages which were all well-appointed. Breakfast supplied, clean linens upon request. Beautifully landscaped property. Access to laundry at the mid point of our trip was wonderful! Great access to Napier, Hastings, Hawkes Bay... More

We (a group of three) stayed in the Hydrangea cottage which I believe is the largest of the three. It is well equipped and beautifully decorated. The grounds are lovely. The service of the owners was fantastic without being obtrusive. They accommodated a request for a slightly late check and they even brought us whitebait for breakfast one morning! Clive... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It was wonderful to have you stay with us and to see you make the most of both the cottage and the location. I do admire people who like to bike lots of places while enjoying the food and wine in the area. The proximity to the sea... More

We have just spent two fantastic days at the Lawn Cottages. Having been on the charge through the North Island of NZ, this was a great place to stop and recharge the batteries. Jacquie & Ski are fantastic hosts, no request was too big or small and delivered with a true Kiwi joie de vivre. The cottages are spacious and... More

We stayed at the Lawn Cottages for 2 nights. The setting in the gardens is very tranquil and the cottages are lovely and very central. Jacqui and Ski were very nice and they went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The Lawn Cottages provide a great base to sample all that the local vineyards have on offer... More

A getaway without the kids to NZ's wine Capitol and Lawn Cottages provided us with a wonderful hideaway. Owner was helpful in organising a wine tour last minute and answered all of our questions about food and shopping in the area. Would not hesitate recommending them or to stay there again!!!
