Ahuriri Townhouse modern and spacious ,free wifi.

 Perfect location. Fabulous house with all the amenities we required. Beds very comfortable and the free wifi a definite bonus. Will 100% book this property again when up in Napier. 

New 5 bed Penthouse including secure parking+Wifi

 Very central to all the places we needed to be over the week. Lots of space for the 9 of us that stayed there. 

3 bedroom house, Greenmeadows

 Location close to shops, even a small children's playground in the street. Close to church rd and mission winery and nice quiet street. Clean and fresh and lots of linen avail if required. Selection of cd's to play on the stereo - good taste in music. Nice large flat screen TV and outdoor setting was great. 

3 bedroom house, Greenmeadows

 We enjoyed our stay, the place was very clean, tidy and well equipped for our purposes, the owners were very responsive and prompt with their communication. We stayed there as it was close to where we had a reunion and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area as it is close to Napier, Hasings, vineyards etc. 

Napiers large quiet family friendly holiday home

 The house is perfect for a group and it is so nicety stay in a true kiwi bach! 

Panoramic beach front views

 Absolutely lovely little "old school" bach on this beautiful remote HB beach. Neat and clean with oodles of character. It rained and rained while we were there but it was still a perfect little retreat.
