Our stay at Haumoana House was one of the most peaceful and relaxing breaks we have ever had. The accommodation is very spacious and well appointed. We had everything we could possibly want, with much thought given to our needs. The beds were very comfortable, and it was wonderful to greet the day with amazing elevated views over the vineyard and out to sea, and coastline. Close by are a great choice of top restaurants, so we were very pleased with our choice. A good night's sleep, amazing scenery, and good food. We wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend Millar Road when staying in the Napier/Hastings area.

Four couples stayed in Villa 1 and Villa 2 for a reunion weekend. The three couples who hadn't been to Millar Road before were gobsmacked by the high quality of our accommodation, and especially the food and wine stocked in the fridge and kitchen. We were all very impressed with all facilities - the crisp cotton sheets got a special mention. They all said they had a good sleep in the comfortable beds.I'm biased of course but we couldn't have had a better place for our weekend. We all wished we could stay longer - maybe we'll be back some day.

We had a 30th celebration in our family so nine of us headed for Hawkes Bay some flying and some by car. The road trip from Auckland is around five hours with stops via Lake Taupo and some spectacular and quintessential New Zealand highway driving and flying is 45 minutes from Auckland domestic airport. Millar Road is a group of three buildings set in a vineyard on a ridge overlooking vines that stretch down to forests and the sea. The main house consists of 3 generous bedrooms with king beds one ensuited and the other two sharing a bathroom complex and bath. The house stretches along the ridge so every room has a grand view with all amenities situated to the rear. The beds and linen were crisp and delightful with generous cupboard space and the main bedroom had a walk in robe. A large fully functioning kitchen flows to a dining space and then onto a living room with a log fireplace and study off to one side separating the kitchen from the master bedroom is another large study. A long salty pool then sits to one side between the main house and the next building which is a standalone house with two king bedrooms two bathrooms with a shared bath area. In front of the bedroom area is a generous kitchen dining space and living area. We took these two buildings and the third structure is similar to the latter with another two bedrooms but is totally isolated and we never saw anyone from there although we believe there was an American couple staying. We spent four days and four nights here and loved every minute ... We cooked one night and had a wonderful catered dinner from Paolo for the birthday night and then ate out at Craggy Range ... Sublime! ... and had pizas on the last night ... Our days were lying in the sun playing Cub on the massive lawn by the vines swimming in the pool and visiting some of the best wineries that NZ has to offer ... This included a biking wine trail that took most of one day ending in a long lazy lunch under vines at Clear View estate just down from the amazing Elephant winery ... Our hosts were brilliant and all our needs were taken care of and it was nice to do some laundry after long days playing in the sun ... The only issue was understanding the lighting system as there were just so many switches! ... A special mention to Paolo Pancotti the principal of Molto Italian Kitchen who cooked for us ... It was a wonderful meal that was perfect for the celebration and he produced this with fresh vegetables and locally caught John Dory as a main ... He is brilliant and thoroughly recommended ... The house also has a massive herb garden and a bountiful fig tree! ... So if you are a couple or a group of up to 14 couples looking for relaxation and wine tours this is a great spot ...

Do you mind if we use that on our website? :) So glad to hear that you had such a wonderful experience - it makes us all feel very happy thanks. And yes, Paolo is a genius and he just knows his way around our place. Come back for feijoa season! Cheers Gregory & Ginny

My wife and I stayed in Villa 2 with another couple who’ve traveled the world with us, and we all agree it was fantastic. We biked the Tuki Tuki river trail to Clifton and back, enjoyed the salt water pool, and were amazed at the perfect views. More than that however the kitchen, bedrooms, and living spaces are perfectly designed to enjoy the setting, which as others have noted is a beautiful vineyard atop a hill that looks over Elephant Hill winery and Hawke’s Bay beyond.
