Bach or holiday home, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps 2), private and comfortable
Old sports people who have played everything. We needed a new challenge which this property provided. We wanted to make a safe, tranquil environment for couples to come and really reconnect and recharge. Our feedback seems to say that we have succeeded in this. Having come from a stressful corporate background myself, to find a place to take "time out" was paramount. Now sharing it with others is a unique experience, and mutually beneficial.
SHERYLV1 purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why SHERYLV1 chose Puketapu
A childhood dream was to have a lifestyle block to grow my own fruit and veges with chooks and furry friends. We have a unique "getaway" and the most pleasure we have is to be able to share this with guests. We came upon this property while it was still in Pine forest. Watching it being felled whilst out cycling. It was a complete bomb site trees debris, stumps, rocks and pinecones. To transform it into my dream has been the best thing we have ever achieved. Looking down at the twinkling sea over the mess was enough to realise "this was the place"...Now with our plantings the native birdlife is returning. Big fat pheasants, wood pigeon, bellbirds, fantails, quail, Tui, friendly ducks etc etc. There is an abundance of fruit and nuts on our trees and we are living the dream.
What makes this Cottage unique
Close to Napier's famous walkways and cycle ways. Stunning views. Peace and quiet to recharge the batteries from the drain of "life" these days. Also close to several top class wineries. The Mission, Church Road, Crab Farm, Linden Estate, Sacred Hill, to name a few.

A peaceful retreat
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. What a peaceful place it is and we loved the magnificent garden and its produce!
Perfect "treat" for any couple!!
The views are amazing! The sun rises are unbelievable!! Wine, bacon, eggs, jam, marmalade and milk are some things that were provided and an endless supply of oranges! I loved our stay there and really appreciate the little touches that made us feel welcomed. Thanks so much!
Fantastic location and perfect property for a weekend away. Private and quiet. Really well looked after and well thought out. Great to have provisions waiting in the cottage. Fantastic views and not far at all if wanting to pop into the city. Would recommend to friends.
