Excellent House and Location
We stayed here for the month of April, having stayed several times before.
The property is in an excellent location within easy walking distance of the town centre, farmers market and beaches.
There are three good bedrooms and it is well equipped for a lovely stay with great views from the front deck over the river.
Lovely home on the river. Quiet neighborhood. Many thanks to our host John, especially for the complementary bottle of wine. It was superb.

We were a group of 4 girls in Gisborne for an adventure race. Johns house was absolutely beautiful and the setting by the river was stunning. This luxury house was just what we needed after our race. The beds were very comfy and the place was spotless.
A Delightful Place To Stay
We were visiting Gisborne with friends from the UK, and couldn’t have chosen a lovelier place to stay at than Riverview Cottage. It’s location is very convenient, an easy walk to shops, restaurants etc. The house itself is delightful. It’s spacious enough for 2 couples to each have their own space, and beautifully appointed. We especially appreciated the comfortable beds, in fact we found ours so comfortable that we took note of the make of our mattress! There is also a large outside deck with ample seating and a picture postcard view out over the river, we spent a lot of time out there.
Home away from home
The house is ideally located close to town in a quiet cul-de-sac. It was clean and tidy inside with plenty of space to relax plus a great outdoor deck area. We found the gardens a bit overgrown and unkept and the windows could do with a clean on the outside. Unfortunately probably due to the lack of habitation there was an infestation of cockroaches which we bought under control with some pest repellent.
We would stay again as the location and the house setup are excellent.
Thanks for your review.
We have contacted a local company to resolve the issues mentioned.
We are very glad you enjoyed your stay.
A very good location just minutes walk to the city. A lovely Saturday market just down the road.The villa had plenty of room. Two of the three bedrooms were particularly roomy.
Warm & comfortable.
