    Gorgeous little private cottage. Would highly recommend. The little extra touches like the assortment of kids toys made it a memorable stay.

    This is real value for money! We used the bikes everyday during our time and even though the water was cold we used the pool. The water, coming from a spring, was wonderful to swim in. The accommodation was cleaned to an extremely high standard and Janet stated that if we needed anything to just let her know. We highly recommend this bach and the area for those who enjoy gentle cycling and walking. For us the highlight of our stay was the Cape Kidnappers tractor trip - what fun.

    The property has a great setting in trees and with expansive and lawn around it. Far enough back from the road for traffic noise to be no issue.

    “We found this property was situated in a great location, semi rural but so close to both Napier & Hastings. The accommodation was spotless, clean and has everything you need.We had easy access to the cycle trails and that was a bonus for us.
