We have a wee cottage for rent out in the country of CHB. It has a small, sunny patio area with outdoor table & chairs, and in summer there is a pool, and a BBQ for you to use.
There is a fully equiped kitchen with a benchtop oven, 2 benchtop hobs and a microwave. A continenal breakfast is supplied, as is tea, coffee, sugar, s&p, oil & flour etc. A simple evening meal can be requested when you book - $15 for one course; $20 for two courses - p/p.
NOTE: The cottage is small, so using the fold out couch in the lounge takes up 40% of the space while in use. If preferred, we have 2 kiddie sized, covered foam mattresses that can be put in the bedroom.
We live 20 minutes south of Hastings and only 30 minutes from the world famous Tuki Tuki and Waipawa trout fishing rivers. We can also offer information on the superb local wineries. Art Deco Napier is 35 mins away.
Our valley has typical HB outcrops of limestone rocks which make it picturesque, and which we love. With the owners permission it is possible to walk to them or to the top of the hill opposite our place. Fabulous views.
We are growing 170 olive trees, 250 grape vines and 65 truffle inoculated oaks/hazelnuts.
Extensive vege gardens, including strawberries and raspberries for the house. Peach, apricot, apple, plum, almond, persimmon, quince and pear trees also for house supply, wild blackberry bushes down the road for jam, and 2 beehives for honey. Our vineyard supplies us with enough grapes to make a barrel and a half of red wine, and this is also for house supply! Depending on the season, your timetable and your interests, you are welcome to participate with any beekeeping, winemaking, distilling or other activities happening during your stay.
We have a staffie called Poppy, our 2 muscovy ducks are Petunia and Pansy, and we have 5 hens who supply us with eggs. Please keep in mind our poultry is free-range if you are visiting with a dog.
Our road is only 3.5 km long so our valley is quiet and secluded.

  •  The hosts are lovely as is the property. We so enjoyed them answering all our questions about their various endeavours. Only wish we could have stayed longer! 

  •  Great little place to stay, amazing views to wake up too, weather was great, couldn't ask for better. Lovely people to deal with. Place is great and got most things, It's a perfect place to get away and relax. Thanks Cherie for a lovely stay and letting us bring our little dogs :) 

  •  We loved our stay at the cottage. There were gorgeous views and the cottage is comfortable and neat. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We were away most of the day, and they happily took care of our puppy without us asking for them to do so. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a peaceful and picturesque getaway.
