Off The Track Wattle Tree Cottage

 Location was perfect for our son's cricket camp and for walking into Havelock North. 

New Modern Self Contained Accommodation

 Very handy to Central Havelock North and spacious and comfortable accommodation. Would certainly use again. 

Peaceful setting, convenient location.

 Great house with a great surrounding. Really enjoyed the setting and very child friendly. 

Peaceful setting, convenient location.

 Nicely furnished, comfortable beds, quiet but central location. Children enjoyed the ducks and we appreciated being able to use the pool to cool off in the heat. A tin of home baking and fresh flowers were appreciated! We enjoyed being able to dine outside. 

John's House: Peaceful spacious architectural gem

 Awesome house. Perfect location. Warm and helpful hosts. Great spot!! 

New Modern Self Contained Accommodation

 Location is great just a small stroll down to shops restaurants and cafes. Liked the outdoor area with sliding doors out to from the bedrooms. Lovely breakie provisions and enjoyed the great water pressure in the shower and having a bath. I would highly recommend to all!
