Booked this place for its proximity to Mission Estates so we could go down from Taupo for the Toto concert. Well, what can we say. A warm greeting from Mike (as Penny was out). A lovely plate of piklets, butter and jam greeted us. Thank you, they were delicious. Penny and Mike are great hosts. Each morning over breakfast we would hear of their adventures and tell them of ours. Great conversation. Pennys pottery is so great I had to make a couple of purchases before I left. I could have spent a fortune in there. Check it out if you ever get to stay in this idilic place. We hope to see them both again in Taupo very soon. Thank you for a wonderful time. Lorayne & Martin 😀😀😀
This is a wonderful location with the scenic Mission Estate in full view. It is quiet and private. Penny and Mike are gracious hosts who made our stay very memorable. Perfect in every detail. Penny's pikelets m'mmmn , Mike's omelettes superb!!Thank you for a memorable stay.
We were rescued by Penny and Michael as our accommodation which we had booked and paid for in full in November last year did not materialise as the owner had gone on holiday!! We went to the I site in town who gave us our accommodation with Mission Vista. This was a self contained apartment with separate entrance completely self contained with good facilities, a lovely comfortable bed and good shower room. Penny and Michael were the perfect hosts who went out of their way to make us feel at home. Their home is directly opposite the Mission Winery the oldest winery in NZ with an interesting history.it also has a great restaurant which we visited twice during our four day visit. Michael drove us although you can walk to it. On the first night he drove us up to the restaurant and he was obviously well known there( his grand daughter works there). On the second day he gave us his own personalised tour of Napier in his car showing us the delights of this Art Deco town,theatre and other significant sights including his school and old family home. It was fascinating to hear the history from a fourth generation Kiwi. Having felt very disappointed about our non booking,as it transpired, we felt we were rescued by Penny and Michael and will be eternally grateful for their kind and hospitable treatment of two lost souls in Napier. Thanks again. Alan& Sheila.…
We were lucky to have gotten this place during our short stay in Napier. The hosts were friendly and charming. The room was immaculate and I enjoyed spending every second there. I wish I could have stayed a little longer. Penny & Mike, you are both superstars! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
We stayed with our two children for 2 nights with Penny & Mike. We were made to feel extremely welcome and the accommodation was perfect for our needs. I must make a special mention to the hearty breakfasts that were provided. Would certainly return -thank you for a pleasurable experience.
