  • Lovely location in the Central Hawkes Bay countryside

    Lovely location in the Central Hawkes Bay countryside. A short drive to Waipukurau, nice and quiet and secluded. The house has been tastefully renovated and in keeping with a turn of the century villa. Plenty of insulation in there, so warmed up nicely once the woodburner was underway.

    We loved staying at this brilliantly restored cottage and only regret not staying longer. It simply radiates character and reflects the care and love David & Deidre have for it. We had a great time snuggled up by the fireplace and would love to come back some day. The place makes a great base to explore Central Hawkes Bay and surrounding areas.
