    The property is larger than I expected, so plenty of room for four, though we had only three in our party. Would definitely recommend it to anyone seeking a quiet, peaceful break. Very comfortable beds, which we appreciated after a long drive. Unfortunately, we never got a chance to try the spa pool but it certainly looked inviting. Close to Napier CBD, Mission Wines and Taradale.

    Beautiful property in a great spot, we didn't get the chance to appreciate it as much as we would have liked due to other commitments. The apartment we were in is set up for two couples, however there is only one small bathroom which is ensuite to the main bedroom. Good kitchen set up, a lovely spot to relax and unwind and we would definitely stay again.
