Beach Retreat A fantastic beach setting.

 The place is Fantastic. Very good views. House is very lovely & neat & tidy as well. We all love the place and great service. If we have a chance, love to stay at that lovely house again.

Beach Retreat A fantastic beach setting.

 The property was very clean and it was so nice to have good bedding. A complimentary bottle of wine was appreciated - thanks. The location was okay for us but it is a wee way out from Napier township so a car is necessay. We all enjoyed our stay in the sunny Hawkes Bay.

Sea view villa with character

 The house had plenty of room and lots of separate living spaces for people to enjoy. The rate was very reasonable considering the size and condition of the property. The deck overlooking the harbour was a great spot to soak up some afternoon sun. The location was great, with easy access to both Napier town and the port area. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again in future!
