Fifteen mins from Hastings, Napier and Havelock North, five mins to international standard wineries, restaurants and cafes; Cleaview Estate, Clifton Bay, Te Awanga, Beach House and Elephant Hill, and a short drive to internationally acclaimed Cape Kidnappers Golf Course and the gannet colony. Very close to excellent river fishing and surf casting sites, a very safe lagoon for daily swimming, and the sea for swimming when conditions are calm. Ideal for a relaxing stay at a home away from home. Large enough to accommodate big groups but with many private nooks and crannies for relaxing and an outside shower and funky hang out space/BBQ area straight off the beach. The large studio has recently been renovated and insulated successfully maintaining the groovy retro beachy charm the Rustic Retreat is famous for.
