River House is a beautiful Andy Coltart designed property on the Tuki Tuki river adjacent to Black Barn River Lodges with breathtaking 180 deg views down the river to the majestic peaks of Mt Kahurankai and Te Mata Peak. Set on 4 acres with its own vineyard rolling down to the river, the house has 5 double bedrooms and three shower rooms (one en suite) ; large kitchen and drawing room with open fire; east and west courtyards one with open fire. The "all day sun" garden has a 12m swimming pool and a large flat grassed area suitable for marquee functions (venue fee extra). River House is our family home and is furnished as such, so you will have to excuse personal touches such as photos, etc!

There's lots to do: head down to the river to catch dinner or take a walk along the river path or do a circuit of the Tuki Loop bike trail - both are on the doorstep. The property is designed for entertaining / outdoor living with two fabulous courtyards always giving a sheltered option if the breeze picks up. The native birdsong provides nature's backing soundtrack.

With NZ's best climate, this beautiful part of Hawke's Bay offers fabulous wineries, from the world class sophistication of the restaurants at Craggy Range (3 mins); Black Barn (5 mins) or Elephant Hill (15 mins) to the rustic charm of the eateries such as Clearview at Te Awanga.

Topping it all is the award winning lodge, restaurant and world ranked #40 golf course at Cape Kidnappers (25 mins). Havelock North is 7 mins and Napier 20 mins drive.

Other attractions: Art Deco Festival; Cape Kidnappers gannet colony; beaches at Waimarama (20 mins ) and Ocean Beach (10 mins drive) ; the Tuki Loop and winery bike trails, trout fishing; international sport and Horse of the Year and much more.

Child friendly; small pets permitted by arrangement - Sidney our fluffy cat enjoys sharing his house in exchange for his bowl being topped up - smoke outside please. Max guests is 10. No extras please.

Special conditions: Our house is set up for 10 ; not 11, 12 or 20! No camper vans, tents or extra mates staying over. It is our family home - please respect that. This is pretty much our only rule and if it is broken we will ask you to leave and you will not get a refund. The house is available for use as a venue by separate arrangement. If you intend to hold a party or event with more than a total of 20 attendees you will be charged the $1750 plus gst fee. Tell us want you want to do and we will try to fix it!
