Suburban House, in quiet area.

 Great house for a big group. Fantastic deck. Easy access into town from a secluded location. 

Dewdrop Cottage - country comfort close to town

 We spent 3 nights at Dewdrop Cottage - and thoroughly enjoyed it! Our hosts were fantastic, and on arrival had stocked up the fridge! The house was lovely and situated in a beautiful garden. Our two year old was happy in the swing, playing with the toys on offer and watching the horses and sheep in the paddock. The beds were great, and it was close to Hastings but had the most amazing country feel. We would definitely recommend it, especially for those with young children. 

Coastal Vineyard Apartment - spectacular sea views

 Lovely place to stay. I only wish I could've stayed longer! 

Harper House, Waimarama

 The house is well presented in a great location. Has everything you need and generous living areas. Easy walking to shop, park, and beach. Keen to return. 

Need a night or two in Hawke's Bay?

 It was so close to Havelock. We walked into town for breakfast and rode our bikes around the gardens. The place was very clean and cosy; a lovely place to stay. 

Rural Retreat at the Berry Farm  Close To Hastings

 It was the most convenient to where the function was that we were attending..semi rural..nice to hear frogs croaking in the early morning.
