Seaview House, The name says it all....

 Thank you for a wonderful stay at the Seaview Terrace Cottage. It was better than we expected and the house is truly beautiful. Lovely touches throughout the house which made some great photo opportunities for our sons wedding pictures. It suited our needs perfectly. Would recommend it to any family group wanting to chill out.

Churchill House with Views across Hawkes Bay

 A huge house with ample space for a large extended family. Beds and furniture were comfortable and of good quality. Sky TV a bonus. Amazing view and private, quiet position. Location suited us for easy driving access to local area, Napier township and wineries. The kitchen could perhaps do with a few more cooking utensils.
