Coote Cottage is the perfect holiday getaway.

It is situated on a generally quiet street by Napier's Centennial Gardens, directly adjacent to the old Napier Prison and has lovely sea views. Once you arrive you can park the car and walk virtually anywhere! Just down the road are the local swimming pools, beach, Marine Parade and the bicycle rental store. Wander a little further and you'll find the local shopping area, iSite and all the restaurants and cafes Napier CBD has to offer.

Just up the hill is a dairy, fish and chip shop and hairdresser.

There is secure off street parking for two cars and it is pretty much a flat walk anywhere from there - it is about 200 metres down hill to Marine Parade.

Free WiFi is available, along with a landline for local calls.

Whether you are into the local wineries, the many cycleways, boating, Napier's iconic Art Deco Weekend, or the myriad of other attractions the bay has to offer, this cottage is perfectly situated for your comfort and enjoyment.

A heat pump and wood burner ensure the cottage is warm, dry and comfortable in winter. There are also patio blinds surrounding the deck which allow you to enjoy the view no matter the weather.

We provide a few essentials in the kitchen and toilet paper and hand soap to get you started, but you need to bring all other items, including your toiletries. We are happy to stock the fridge and pantry for you. Just email us a list of your requirements, we'll cost it for you and on receipt of payment do the shopping, ready for your arrival.

Discounts can be organised if you are a couple wanting to use just one bedroom and one bathroom or for longer term stays.

Please note the cottage has a strict NO PARTY rule at all times and is a non-smoking property.

  • Would definitely stay at beautiful cottage again

    Would definitely stay at beautiful cottage again...lots of space, modern facilities in character cottage, easy 10 minute stroll to marine parade and city centre...parade at night all lit up ...gorgeous. The finishing touch with cheese board perfect after drive over from Wanganui and Tauranga. Warm fire with plenty of wood excellent! Huge thanks to Cathy and Julie from Mary, Smithy, Jerry and Craig ????

  • What can I say?! We absolutely loved our weekend at Coote cottage!...

    What can I say?! We absolutely loved our weekend at Coote cottage! My 3 sisters and I wanted a weekend to catch up, relax and enjoy the beautiful city of Napier. I'm so pleased we got such a great place to stay! Close to town (we walked in and back.. with our shopping!) but still quiet and peaceful, it was immaculate and homely. When we arrived on Friday night, the house was warm and we were left a beautiful platter! Such a thoughtful touch from Cathy and Julie. Everything was just perfect! We mooched by the fire that night - bliss And the weekend was just fantastic and that is largely down to this house as we spent a fair amount of time there. Cathy and Julie were helpful and communicated often with us, which was really helpful. We asked to stay slightly longer on Sunday which wasn't a problem for them and helped us out heaps. Can't wait to come back and stay again! Thanks :)

    The house was very warm and clean with great amenities. We all had the best sleep as the beds were so comfy. Only a short walk into the main town and close to the sea.

    Neat, clean, well equiped and very secure with off-street parking close to CBD. We have stayed here three times and hope to be able to obtain more bookings in the future.
