“A Dream Vacation”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast over a perfect fall weekend. We were greeted with sheer kindness, warmth and hospitality. We immediately fell in love with this Parisian inspired cottage. We lacked for nothing. A well stocked refrigerator, home cooking, special touches and a most comfortable accommodation. Crisp and clean yet quaint, homey and sophisticated .Our only regret was only staying 2 days! Book longer, and do less! Although we thoroughly enjoyed a few wine tastings and the loveliest Fall farmers market in Hawke's Bay, Make time to take a bath, sip tea on the patio and breathe! The views of the valley are majestic, a friendly sheep or two may peek in- Otherwise, total privacy, peace and relaxation.

We were so fortunate to stay here. I couldn't recommend it higher!

Walking from the B&B entrance through the garden you wonder what you have let yourself in for because at first glance there seems nothing out of the ordinary about this place. But then, as you reach the crest of the hill at then end of the garden you are confronted with the most glorious view out over the estuary, looking towards Hakes Bay and Napier. It quite takes your breath away. The cottage is very charming, roomy, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It has a very well equipped kitchen and we were more than happy to pick up supplies from the nearest supermarket (and the fish shop) and cook lovely meals washed down with a bottle of the local Mission Estate wine. With view like this why would you go anywhere else? Sunrise was fabulous, sunset stunning and if you are lucky enough to see the full moon rise, as we did, you'll be in 7th heaven.

Noel and Karen a wonderful hosts and run a great place. We'd happily return to Hawk Hill and it made our 4 day stay in Napier extra special.
