tranquil suburban setting
Located on a hill overlooking a pretty valley. The lake view in the pictures is from the other side of the property. We loved the bird song and the sheep (7 or so) sometimes grazed close to the cottage. And we enjoyed the beautiful eggs. Cottage is spacious and has everything you need, kitchen very well equipped. wifi is not continuous, which is confusing to us; we were not allowed to make wifi calls but otherwise it was adequate for our needs. Melanie even helped us with some printing and scanning of a couple pages. Cottage is spacious and well equipped and stocked. The area is wonderful about halfway between Hastings and Napier. We used the loaner bikes which were fine, but if the weather was better I would have loved to try the e-bikes offered.
Hi karen, thank you for your lovely review. The wifi should have been fine so we will look into it. If you make calls using our wifi we get charged for it so we are happy for you to make calls but we would have to pass on the charges. Enjoy your travels around NZ.
Lovely relaxing location
A wonderful spot to relax, close to town and had everything we needed. The added extras were really appreciated. Clean and tidy - we will definitely come again. Thanks
Great relaxing stay
Perfect place to unwind and take a break. Was a great set up for taking a little one on a walk to get eggs etc.
Minus was basic WiFi struggled to connect but not really needed when you can take a glass and have a nice wine outside.
Melanie was lovely and very accommodating.
Very enjoyable stay
Such a lovely clean and tidy place to stay. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there relaxing and enjoying the views. Great location handy to just about everything. Melanie was a lovely host and greeted us once settled.

this cottage was all you could ask for. neat, clean, views, quiet lovely hosts. a most relaxing base for a couple of days. very well appointed, you could not fault the stay at all. great value for money. far exceeded our expectations.
Our property is situated in a semi-rural area, only 2ks from the best cycle track in the bay. We have chickens which supply us with free range eggs almost year round. We usually have sheep grazing in amongst the olive trees. The cottage is fenced and private with it's own views over the countryside. We are five minutes to the Taradale shopping centre with bars, cafes and shops. We are also close to EIT, Pettigrew Green Arena and Napier golf club. The Hawkes Bay Sports Centre is about 10mins by car. We sit between both Napier & Hastings / Havelock North with many wineries to enjoy. Some of the activities include Splash Planet, Gannet Safaries, Wineries, Aquairum, parks etc - there is a lot to see and do!
