Five minutes walk to the centre of town, this charming fully-furnished family home is set among trees in a quiet location across the road from Gleeson Park. This reserve is mainly lawn and trees with a small playground for children, and is suitable for family games and picnics ... bring your badminton net!

Designed and built by an architect in the 1960s, the quirky home has many interesting features including a narrow sky-view strip that runs the length of the roof. Very little has been modified over the years, apart from the original balcony. This was completely rebuilt (2017) to comply with modern building-safety standards.

The master bedroom upstairs has a small bridge that leads across to an elevated private garden with fruit trees.

While the main bathroom has a shower, toilet and bath, upstairs there's a second toilet with hand basin.

Being a chalet style with open stairs, our holiday home is not ideally suitable for wee toddlers, however we have a portacot for babies.

Off street parking is available for up to three vehicles.

  • Great place to stay, really central, we were able to walk to...

    Great place to stay, really central, we were able to walk to Napier town easily. The house was quaint and really tastefully decorated with comfortable beds and furniture, lots of blankets. The kitchen had everything you needed to be able to cook a meal. Our visit was mid-winter and the gas heating was sufficient to keep the house cosy and warm. It also had a great deck and outdoor area. Parking at the doorstep too. If you are ok with internal stairs then I would definitely recommend it.

  • The chalet was such a perfect place for us

    The chalet was such a perfect place for us. It's a cozy spacious place, nice and warm, tidy and clean. Great shower, and all the facilities you need. Quick walk into town and the beach. Would love to come back!
