“A hidden surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We stayed at Redcliff unexpectedly. What a fantastic experience. Excellent property, amazing hosts. Would highly recommend this property. The Calcinai's are great hosts could not do enough to make our stay perfect. The rooms were beautifully decorated and comfortable. The setting peaceful but close to town. Lots in the area biking, wine tasting etc. Hope to go back.

Room Tip: This is a small property so all rooms are perfect

We were delighted to return to Redcliffe, this time with Tammy our little wire-haired Dachshund, for three very relaxing, extremely comfortable nights. Sue and Brian looked after us beautifully in every way, taking special care with breakfasts and dinners to suit tricky dietary needs. This is such charming a property, with very special hosts. The Burgundy room with ensuite, is beautifully appointed, with French doors opening on to your own verandah area, the perfect spot for drinks and yummy pre-dinner treats. Tammy enjoyed the company of her big pals Sophie and Zara and slept very happily in the hallway outside our bedroom door. She (and us) are looking forward to visiting again soon.

Redcliffe Homestead is magnificent! It is a beautifully restored cosy and comfortable farmhouse surrounded by lovingly tendered gardens. Our two day stay here was enhanced by Sue's easy and natural hospitable nature. ( We unfortunately did not have the pleasure of meeting Brian). I must also mention the lovely company of the two gorgeous Labradors also helped us to feel at home. The freshly baked muffins were a treat each morning such to the point that I have now sourced the iconic NZ recipe book from which the recipes came so that I feel like I am taking a little piece of Redcliffe with me. I agree with a previous review regarding the bed - so soft. Best sleep I had on our holiday around the North Island. It is well located - a short drive to vineyards and lovely restaurants for lunch or dinner. It is a real treat to stay here - strongly recommended.

Room Tip: Both rooms are lovely.

Redcliffe Homestead. Sue & Brian. It is a dream package. I loved staying here so much I want to have my own B&B. The property is full of beautiful fruit trees and magnificently landscaped, the house has been restored and has wonderful warmth and charm. The rooms are beautifully appointed, softest bed I have ever slept on, the cooking and baking and using fruits from the orchard - just amazing...I could rave on and on. What makes this place so wonderful are Sue and Brian. Brilliant hosts who are beyond helpful. This was a significant trip for me and I wanted to know a lot about the locals....Sue was brilliant in helping me in ways that exceeded my expectations and constantly went out of her way. Brian was a delight and took us for a tour around the orchard and gave us history on the homestead

We came down to attend a family wedding held nearby and were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and the friendliness of Sue and Brian . Sue's baking was superb and they fitted in well with any plans we had . They were both exceptional hosts and we would thoroughly recommend Redcliffe Homestead for a stay.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Redcliffe Homestead and enjoyed it completely. The owners were really lovely as was the the surrounds and the accommodation and service. We would highly recommend Redcliffe Homestead as a great base to explore the Hawkes Bay region from.
