Private, modern, cosy, self contained farm stay

 We had a wonderful stay and would have liked to stay longer. The accommodation was very comfortable. It had everything we needed. We enjoyed walking the farm tracks with the children and found out we had a potential "Cross Country Runner" in the family. Kids enjoyed feeding the chickens and watching out for rabbits. Lovely, quiet and relaxing. We Will be back.

Coote Cottage on Bluff Hill.

 Set in a great location just minutes walk to all amenities. The house was very modern and spacious. Beautiful bathroom with roll top bath. It was a pity we couldn't have stayed longer. 

Fully refurbished 1920's Bungalow

 Beautiful property and great location, wish it was my actual house! 

Beautiful Art Deco house by the sea

 Charming little house close to the water with walkway along the beach. Need transport to get to the city centre but Napier waterfront worth a visit. 

Stunning panoramic city and sea views

 Private spacious area overlooking Napier with beautiful views.
