Description

Near the centre of Havelock North this oasis is a lovely place to curl up and contemplate the environment. Sit back, relax and have a glass of wine in this lovely destination or stroll in the native garden. From here you have the opportunity to visit local beaches, sample the wine from the local wineries, eat out at some excellent cafes and restaurants, visit the farmers' markets or partake in any number of activities that this area has to offer.

Walking tracks are just 5 minutes away on foot (of course), bicycle hire is 5 minutes the other direction. Or just curl up with a book and a wine under the cafe style umbrella or in front of the fire.

A short stroll gets you into the centre of Havelock North where you can enjoy all the opportunities and avoid driving.

    This is a beautifully designed and appointed bach with a wonderful deck garden to enjoy. It is close to the township so you can walk rather than drive for a pleasant evening out.

    The property is in a great location to the small town of Havelock North and a short drive (10-15mins) from some really lovely wineries. The beautiful wooden decor features throughout the house gave it a wonderfully warm feeling, with large windows in the main bedroom that opened up for a nice breeze. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this bach to anyone travelling to the area.
