A delightful group of cottages, all with a private access and view, ours overlooked lawns and roses. Every need accounted and provided for - large comfy beds, air con, well equipped kitchen, laundry facilities and more. David had even picked vases of flowers to welcome us and Eric gave us a personal tour of the trees and plants in the garden, the fruit is there to pick - I picked a lemon and realise now how juicy and zesty they are straight off the tree - a far cry from supermarket products. Plenty to see and do in the area, Te mata figs, fresh fruit from the growers, wineries to have lunch at, and Art Deco Napier. Many thanks David and Eric for your welcome and a lovely few days.

We just finished staying there for 4 nights, are from the U.S. and had idea where to stay in the HB region. We’re happy to say that we chose wisely. Clive itself is centrally located, though everything is close. Lawn Cottages has been recently updated and has been tastefully done. The units are spacious, quiet, private and with a nice garden area. It also has a full kitchen in each unit that we used a couple of nights to cook dinner as we get tired of eating out all the time when traveling. Our only negative comments are: don’t count on using their bikes, rent instead, as they are in terrible shape. There is a nicely maintained bike trail all along the coast there which was fun to ride on. The second is that Netflix didn’t work for night time TV watching. Certainly not a deal

You'd be crazy to stay in Napier when you can drive 10mins away, save hundreds and quadruple the quality. Beautiful grounds, quiet and private cottages that are fully functional (like lil apartments).

This was our second visit to Lawn Cottages. When we arrived the air conditioning was turned on which was fantastic after a hot day in the car. I mentioned that my daughter, who has recently moved to Napier was joining us for a bbq dinner with a couple of friends. We were given extra plates and cutlery, and salt/pepper and sauces in a cute holder with a little umbrella. Its been a year since we stayed and the cottages have new bathrooms with underfloor heating. The shower has great water pressure and the shower head has a relaxing massage setting. The cottages also have new beds which are super comfortable. The way the cottages are situated in the beautiful grounds makes you feel like you have the whole place to yourself. David and Erik are wonderful hosts and we look forward

I stayed one night at Lawn Cottages, and my only regret is that it was only one night! The cottage is one of three set in a beautiful, sprawling gardens which is well-maintained and beautifully-landscaped. You will wake up to birds chirping and the soft breeze rustling the leaves. The cottage is well-designed and very well-maintained, as well as spotlessly clean. Breakfast is provided - eggs, butter, jam, organic milk, and everything else you need to whip up a good meal! Eric and David are wonderful hosts, always smiling and ready to help you. You will not regret staying here. I will bet that you will actually want to stay a longer time! Thank you Eric - our stay at Lawn Cottages was wonderful.
