The apartment is a sunny, warm home, with comfort in mind and to be your home away from home, with all the little extras, including free WiFi. We are a few minutes cycle to the bicycle tracks on the river side located from the Guppy Road entrance.

It is a self-contained unit which is separated by two garages from the host's house. You will have the privacy, a single garage, ample off-street parking and own access to the front gardens which during summer will have a small vegetable garden. There is room to park any big vehicles and trailers. How much interaction you wish to have is entirely up to you.

All linen and towels are provided. The unit is available on a "leave it as you found it" basis and we will take care of cleaning all the linen.

Open-plan living area:

The kitchen includes a dishwasher and a plumbed-in fridge/freezer with an ice-machine. The cooking facilities are a bench-top oven, microwave, electric fry pan and a 2-zone electric induction hobs. There is a hooded BBQ 6 burner (with a side cooker) for those who love to cook outside. The lounge has comfortable recliners, an LED TV, stereo system and DVD player. There are games, puzzles, books and movies suitable for all ages. There is a heat pump/air conditioner for winter and summer comfort.

Other areas:

There is an integral single garage and off-street parking. The laundry is in the garage with a washing machine, dryer and ironing board etc. The bathroom includes a basin, wheelchair friendly shower and toilet.

Wheelchair friendly - the unit is easily accessible via the ranch-sliders, doors and hallways. The kitchen and bathroom have been designed with wheelchair accessibility, and measurements can be provided.

  • Lovely quiet and picturesque location but still close to everything

    Lovely quiet and picturesque location but still close to everything. Our host Marika was amazing - even bringing us home made pie and full of useful advice about the area. We would definitely stay again and know what anyone who books here won’t be dissapointed .

  • Marika is a very welcoming hostess

    Marika is a very welcoming hostess. The "retreat" is a fully equipped, clean, spacious, peaceful haven. The location is fairly central - for our fun filled four day exploration of Hawkes Bay. Thoroughly RECOMMEND this place, beautiful!!
