Charming cottage on Hawkes Bay coastal cycle trail

 This was a great place to stay. The location is fantastic, just back from the beach, and close to Hastings, Napier and lots of local attractions. The kids loved The Hunt, although they couldn't find the turtle which caused some distress!!!! Kitchen was well equipped, beds comfortable, plenty of space for the 5 of us, and a wonderful garden full of fruit trees. It's also a great to find a place where dogs are allowed :-)

 Near to the beach and right on the cycle way to both Havelock North via the river or Napier via the shore.
