Hadn't booked ahead for Hawke's Bay so we arrived early evening and weren't too impressed by much of the accommodation on offer so it was nice to find a self catering unit available. We selected the 2 bedroom unit (although there's only 2 of us) and having been restauranted out we were pleased to be able to visit the supermarket in Havelock North & enjoy a nice meal & bottle of local wine in the very well equipped kitchen/diner. The fruit smell from the orchard next door was an added bonus
This is a lovely spot away from the hustle and bustle and, although on a fairly busy road, is an oasis of calm and quiet. There's a lovely rural view with a couple of horses and some cattle - very peaceful to sit and watch. The room is clean and well equipped and the owner very friendly and helpful.The ice cream was a lovely bonus!! You need a car to get here but it's close enough to everything you might need. Highly recommended!
The cottage was well-equipped and scrupulously clean. Carol is a friendly and thoughtful host. Peaceful view over paddocks and orchards. Handy to Havelock North and wineries. We very much enjoyed our stay and would come back again.
We instantly fell in love upon our arrival in this cottage! The atmosphere, weather, the accommodation and most especially Max and Carol's hospitality was beyond fantastic! The 1 bedroom cottage was perfect and for the first time, we felt more relaxed and at home. It was very tidy, well equipped and couldn't ask for more! Carol and Max was very helpful assisting us to get around Hastings and introducing us to various attractions in the region. We definitely are going to remember this place and will come back again. - Jennifer and Tristan O'Callaghan
If you are looking for somewhere that is tranquil (in the country) but close to the shopping, cafes and restaurants of Hastings and Havelock North then this is it. Very well priced and rooms are well set out with all the amenities you'll need. I found the owners both helpful and obliging.
