We had 2 cottages for a group of 5 ladies. Had a lovely time. The hosts were very obliging, helpful and friendly. Cottages are very nice, bed lovely and nice linen etc. Left us eggs/bread/fruit from their property/milk etc for breakfast. Shower great! In lovely garden surrounds, very peaceful and relaxing. Definitely worth staying here, and being in Clive is... More

The cottages were ideal for the occasion of our daughter's wedding at a nearby homestead. We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble especially when we had a family dinner for 22 in the garden the night before the wedding..Fruit and vegetables in the garden were ours as we needed,. The garden setting was perfect... More

My husband and I stayed in Flax cottage the night of our wedding and the following evening. They let us check in at about 11.45pm and we were allowed to check out at 2pm, which was amazing!

We went for the Art Deco festival in Napier and fell upon this lovely property only 10 minutes from Napier. Our hosts were generous to a fault and provided excellent service.

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

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
