A comfortable and very private small semi-detached flat. Located in the middle of the popular tourist destination of the Cape Kidnappers coastline. Only 10 minutes drive from Art Deco Napier and Havelock North.

Within walking distance of the property you’ll find Haumoana Beach, Tukituki River (great for trout fishing) and limestone cycling trails up the river and through wetlands, and a popular surf break.

Within easy cycling distance you’ll discover gannet safaris, wineries (a full wine tasting circuit), winery restaurants, and a cafe.

The cosy one bedroom flat consists of a sitting room, kitchen with dining area, and kiwi bach-style semi-outdoor bathroom. There is a picnic table and BBQ in the outdoor garden area. There's a washing machine and clothes line.

The flat has free wifi, local artists’ works hanging on the wall, and the place has a lovely, relaxing feel.

There are bikes that completely free for you to use, and will be available on site ??

The flat is very private, but nearby on the property is another small house and the owners residence. When home, the owner lives on site and is available if wanted, but otherwise will not intrude on your privacy.

Haumoana and Te Awanga are very artistic settlements that are lucky enough to have world-class wineries with outstanding restaurants. You will be able to cycle 5 minutes from the house and start a full wine tasting circuit. Visit Elephant Hill (with great restaurant), Clearview Estate (with great restaurant and vibrant Friday nights), Beach House Winery (award-winning wines), and Te Awanga Estate (frequent Sunday Session events).

So, come. Relax on the property. Take walks in the beautiful area. And make a party of it by cycling around the area doing wine tastings. We’re passionate about making guests feel comfortable and at home, and we’d love to host you in this lovely house in this great locatio

  • Great little place to stay close to the beach and the bicycle...

    Great little place to stay close to the beach and the bicycle tracks. Was great to be able to borrow the bikes as well. Thanks for sharing.

  • Excellent location, close to both Napier and Hastings

    Excellent location, close to both Napier and Hastings. We loved the quirky cottage and the addition of the bikes was great as all the cycle paths are nearby.

  • Everything was perfect

    Everything was perfect. The extension at the back of Eric's house is roomy, with a small lounge, a large well equipped kitchen and a small bedroom behind a screen partition. Plenty of space to relax. The air pump kept us cool in the heat of the day. The highlight for us was to go for bicycle rides in the evening along the stop banks of the river (5km one way) or along the beach front to Clifton (5km). Bicycles provided by Eric. We were very comfortable and we plan to go back sometime.
