    Wonderful location for a peaceful piece of rural Hawkes Bay in a classic NZ cottage -- the native birds in the mature garden are fabulous.

  • WOW

    WOW. Fortunate to stay at Moananui for the weekend and it was magical. Great place to get away from it all. Highly recommend the trip to the beach for the cliff walk. Will be back for sure ! Thanks to Hamish and the rest of the Mclean Family, including the two wee foxy dogs ! Loved the all day fire and the deep bath !
