Cosy studio cottage in semi rural setting

 So quiet, yet close to both Hastings and Havelock North. Very convenient location. 

Enjoy the sound of the birds among the trees

 Beautiful chalet in a prime location close to town. Plenty of room for our family of six to sprawl out and the chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc was the perfect welcoming touch. 

A Touch of Country Close To Town

 The location is perfect - a great base to explore the Hawkes Bay from, and also a peaceful place to relax for a quiet holiday. We did both on this visit, which was our second, and we will be back. Facilities are great, and the outlook is lovely. 

Classy cottage amongst the grapevines

 What a great place to stay and wonderful hosts / family. We felt very welcome and they did everything to make our stay even better. The local tips for family outings were a succes and the dogs and the trampoline a big hit with our 2 year old. And the cottage is just wonderful and has everything you need - reality is even better than the pictures. And of course I have to mention the delicious wine and the beautiful views and location. I hope we're able to return some day!
