This cottage is conveniently located near to Havelock North and Hastings, being only minutes away from both. It is built within a 2 hectare (five acre) lifestyle block, being about 100 metres distance from the main residence. It is very private, has extensive rural views and is set within nicely maintained grounds. The Louisa Stream (hence the cottage name) runs nearby, and parents of young children must provide necessary supervision. The cottage is not suitable for wheelchair access.

The cottage enjoys all day sun, with both a North and a West facing deck. There is a stunning view to the South of Mount Erin, and because there is little light pollution, the night sky is spectacular.

There is a large hedge separating the cottage grounds from the adjoining property, which is an apple orchard. At certain times of the year there will be horticultural activity, which may include spraying.

The owners have pet hens and roosters. If the hens co-operate (they are rather temperamental) they may produce some eggs for our guests! The birds are about 60 metres distance from the cottage so the crowing may be heard. However, there is generally other birdlife around, such as Pukekos who can screech at night.

Special conditions: We do not want any smoking on our property. The decks are only about 400mm high, but have no railing so may not be suitable for small children unless supervised. No pets.

  • Beautiful and very tidy cottage surrounded by lovely gardens

    Beautiful and very tidy cottage surrounded by lovely gardens. We loved every minute of our stay, as did our little man. It felt like a home and a holiday at the same time. The ducks and chickens can count themselves very lucky! The location is perfectly in the heart of Hawks Bay. Close to Havelock North and Hastings and only a 20 minute drive to Napier.

  • We throughly enjoyed our time in this quality built and furnished cottage...

    We throughly enjoyed our time in this quality built and furnished cottage which lacked for nothing. The distance from the homestead to the cottage allowed for privacy, but we knew should we need anything more than was already provided, Julie and Eddie would assist. Our stay was memorable in so many ways and we look forward to the opportunity to return to this peaceful property sometime again in the future.

  • A fabulous cottage in the ideal situation, just out of Havelock North

    A fabulous cottage in the ideal situation, just out of Havelock North. The cottage was exceptionally presented throughout, very clean and the beds were so comfy. The cottage had everything we needed (and more!), especially in the kitchen. Highly recommended!!
