The Pavilion, Havelock North, Hawke's Bay

 Great hosts and very helpful. What a lovely place to stay. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful surroundings - very comfortable. We stayed for 2 nights and really loved the Pavilion. Just a clever design just perfect for the two of us. Great location. Just a short stroll along the waterway to Haveloch Village. Thanks also for the lovely homemade bread, muesli and jam and fresh fruits. We can highly recommend this property. Lots to do in the area.

 Great to be able to include our dog. Ticked all the boxes for a short stay and affordable accommodation 

Contemporary studio above Little Oneroa Bay

 Fabulous location, short stroll to Little Oneroa and 10 minute walk into Oneroa itself. Modern and tidy apartment. Nice and cool in the hot sticky weather. Highly recommend, we will definitely stay here again.
