Lovely retreat in the countryside
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Poukawa property. It was incredibly clean, well stocked and Ngaire provided us with fresh eggs, milk and bread plus condiments for breakfast which was lovely! The beds are comfortable and the quality of the linens and towel were hotel quality. The fridge is quite small but Ngaire offered a cooler if needed. The views are amazing and for us, as we wished to be near Havelock North it was a lovely 10’minute drive. Although the owners are next door there is lots of privacy. Ngaire was very hospitable and helpful. I would recommend her place and would stay again! Thank you Ngaire!
Beautiful peaceful setting
Wonderful country garden setting, exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, the cottage has everything you could need, a very special place to stay to relax away from the city.
It is always a pleasure to have guests who are great communicators and to feel reassured the goal of providing a comfortable country haven is being met for them.
great place, comfortable and lovely area.
Only drawback is the distance from Havelock and restaurants - a longish drive after an evening's dining.
Northala Cottage is definitely for guests who want country sights and sounds and no lights at night . Just a faint glow from Havelock North, 8 or 9 km on the northern horizon.
Picturesque peaceful cottage.
A peaceful stay in the countryside but close enough to Havelock North for trips to amenities. Very private with lovely views of garden and countryside. Comfortable beds and lovely linen. The kitchen was full of all we needed- stove, microwave, dishwasher, fridge. Friendly helpful hosts. The milk, eggs, and bread provided was a nice surprise. We had an excellent holiday.
Great communicators , thoughtful and careful makes it such a pleasure to have guests like Grant and Justine.
Heaven on Earth
From the very beginning, being welcomed so late in the day by the wonderful host, to the end of our stay it was just lovely - I wish we could have stayed longer and enjoy the peacefulness of the sorroundings, the beautiful outlook of the land around us.
We/I will come back hopefully soon to have a good rest from busy life - thanks so very much also for the lovely fresh eggs and all the goodies, everything tastefully presented and of the best quality including the milk.
We/I fully recommend this place to anyone, good value for money, haven on earth
Susana is someone who I would not hesitate to recommend as a guest, bubbling enthusiasm and care for the cottage makes having her stay a real joy that would be a pleasure to repeat and for longer. Great communication! Ngaire
Amazing place to stay!
Cosy, clean and beautiful surroundings, great host too! The cottage has everything you need, is well decorated and good toys for kids. Great to see the sheeps from bedroom window in the morning.
Northala is a rural cottage with all modern amenities, including laundry washing and drying, private garden and parking and wide sunny views down the valley to the village of Havelock North 9km or 5 miles north. The village provides boutique shopping, cafes, pubs and restaurants, and bicycle hire to explore the extensive Cycle Trail or discover the many Winery experiences. Adjoining Te Mata Peak will provide a view over the whole of Hawkes Bay on a clear day. Look for the Information Center in the middle of Havelock North for a rich source of local attraction and activities in addition to our favorite places provided in the cottage.
