We were looking for a place that offered us modern, clean but with a country feel to it but close enough to shops, beaches etc. And boy did we find the most perfect place of all "Cottages on St Andrews" Havelock North.

The hosts are so friendly and lovely there was nothing that they wouldn't do for you - we have been back twice and it is now on the top of our list to stay everytime we travel to the East Coast.

Thank you so much Di and John - you will be seeing us soon for sure.

We stayed here in August 2010, we were looking at relocating to the area and used the Cottages as a place to base ourselves from while we looked around.

Location - superb! It close to Havelock North Village, but with a good distance to also have the country feeling & quiet relaxation. There was absolutely no problem with noise. This is a big area of anxiety for me normally when travelling - but we heard nothing! It was dreamy and peaceful. If you are travelling to the area this is the best spot to base yourself from. It is in the best suburb but also in the country. Honestly it is the best of everything here.

Standard - super clean! It was exquisite. Everything was clean and better than a hotel. It felt 5 star class. I am particularly fussy in regards to the cleanliness and this was wonderful.

Amenities - perfect. We had the most wonderful 2 bedroom cottage that opened onto the sheep paddock. The new lambs had just been born and it was pure joy for us, including my 4 year old, to enjoy and play with the new lambs.

Hospitality - second to none. We have travelled extensively and I have never felt more welcome than the warm hospitality we received from Di. Di took my little girl out everyday (sometimes twice a day) to feed the new baby lambs. I was on my own, without my husband, and they even invited me around to watch the rugby with them. We felt completely at home. Di is an extremely wonderful host and will go beyond the call of duty to ensure your stay is the best. I accidently left something behind in the cottage and Di was so kind that she sent this back to our house, without even asking or expecting payment for postage.

Extras - we were staying in Winter and there was just the right amount of bedding, blankets & heating. They also have a pool for summer, which is fenced and safe for kids. They also have an on site playground which my daughter loved.

If we return to the area, we would without hesitation stay here.

We travelled to Napier for the Mission Estate concert.
The 3 bedroom cottage was booked for us by friends we were travelling with.
I really enjoyed our stay. We had a 3 bedroom self contained cottage set in pleasant, quiet surroundings. Our kids loved the pool.
What really made the visit was the hosts Bob & Karen, they went out of there way to offer advice on what do with our time in the area and to make our stay pleasant.
We made good use of their advce and had a very pleasant day after the concert visiting the local farmers market and wineries.
They even offered us a discount card for Splash Planet but unfortunatley time didn't allow us to take advantage of it.
