Description

Near the centre of Havelock North this oasis is a lovely place to curl up and contemplate the environment. Sit back, relax and have a glass of wine in this lovely destination or stroll in the native garden. From here you have the opportunity to visit local beaches, sample the wine from the local wineries, eat out at some excellent cafes and restaurants, visit the farmers' markets or partake in any number of activities that this area has to offer.

Walking tracks are just 5 minutes away on foot (of course), bicycle hire is 5 minutes the other direction. Or just curl up with a book and a wine under the cafe style umbrella or in front of the fire.

A short stroll gets you into the centre of Havelock North where you can enjoy all the opportunities and avoid driving.

    A beautiful house in a great location! You can walk into the cute town in a few minutes. The house itself was perfectly clean with a great kitchen and deck area. The bed was comfortable and the house decor was brilliant! Not one bad thing we could say about the place!
