We stayed here for 4 nights last week and it was an amazing stay. The cottages are beautiful as are the gardens. Jacquie and Ski, the owners, went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. I HIGHLY recommend these cottages if you are intending a visit to the Napier area.

Thanks Jacquie and Ski for a fabulous few days. Wonderful hosts - nothing was too much trouble - and I think we may have been quite troublesome. A group of 12 friends descending on the peace and tranquillity of Clive and made to feel totally welcome. Just a wonderful place if you want to get away from everything, but still... More

We had such a lovely time in the cottage, Jacquie and Ski were both so welcoming and nothing was a problem. Amazing grounds that our son just loved running around and especially the big fish in the pond! The cottage had excellent facilities it was a home away from home. Would stay again :)

We booked all three cottages to accommodate our extended family, including four smaller grandchildren, for a Xmas reunion. We found it a beautiful setting with large lawn areas for kids to run around, and lovely established trees and water features. The hosts, Jacqui and Ski were very helpful and obliging and the cottages were modern and extremely well-equipped for catering... More

Stayed two nights at Lawn Cottages in the Magnolia cottage, in East Clive, which is the gateway to Hawkes Bay. The cottages are located on a pretty property, with rose gardens, ponds and lawns for children to run around on. Hosts Ski and Jacqui were so kind and generous doing everything they could to make our stay comfortable and relaxing.... More

Thank you for providing feedback on your stay with us. We really enjoy being able to share the produce from the gardens with guests. Although the figs are coming to an end soon the walnuts will then provide a new treat. It was a pleasure to have your family stay with us. Jacquie and Ski More

We spent a super, if too short, few days at Lawn Cottages. Our hosts, Ski and Jacquie, were kindness personified, and couldn't do more to make us feel completely at home. Nothing was too much trouble....Ski even recommending, and booking, a table at a local seafood restaurant, where we had a lovely evening meal. The cottage itself was absolutely immaculate,... More
