    The little Bach we stayed in was comfy and clean and had everything we needed. It was a Beautiful location, close to the village. Hastings and Napier were also very close by..I would definitely stay there again.

    Peaceful property in rural setting. Lovely productive garden. Well situated for access to Hastings and Havelock North. Need a vehicle, but Matthew very accomodating if rides needed.

    Lovely location and a cottage with loads of character makes for a pleasant stay. This was a return visit for us and hope to make it back yet again in the future. Only negative was the lack of comfortable seats for watching TV.
