  • So very peaceful and homely, we had a lovely time at this...

    So very peaceful and homely, we had a lovely time at this special place. Very cosy with the fire going and comfy furniture - perfect for a winter hole up. The dogs loved it and it was great having such a big fenced area for them.

  • The property is beautiful

    The property is beautiful. When we arrived it was clean and tidy and Jess' home made chutney and her crabapple jelly were delicious. Long Island is only 15 minutes from the beach and the bourgeoning wetland next door was something special. We will definitely be visiting again when we need some time away.

  • A lovely area, nice scenery and close enough to attractions in Napier

    A lovely area, nice scenery and close enough to attractions in Napier. The cottage was well set up, cosy, warm, roomy and quiet. We were made to feel very welcome by Jess and what an awesome experience having an inside pet rabbit and pony rides - TV was not missed! The beach was lovely and warm enough for a swim in late Autumn. I'd definitely recommend this one. I think this will be a holiday the boys will always remember! Thanks so much Jess, the boys sooo want to come back, maybe in Spring!
