Just Magic....

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Feb 2024
This was just magic - six days of bliss! The cottages are clean, comfortable and well appointed, there is everything you could need to be cosy and self sufficient. Havelock village is FULL of divine eateries - so don't worry about cooking! Janine and Ryan just the best hosts you could hope for, right from booking to check out, the service was exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. Friendly farm animals - Al the pig ate all our scraps and there's apple-loving alpacas, cows and sheep! Pet friendly - bringing our fur-babies was such a bonus. This place has a gorgeous rural feel, but a walk to the village - we simply didn't want to leave. Certainly will be back - Janine and Ryan, thank you so much for everything.

    A good spot 30 mins away from the hustle of Napier but till close enough to explore the surrounds within a 30 mins drive. We had a wonderful time at TeMata Peak and surrounding wineries. Such a serene place. Janine made us feel so welcomed even from her note a week prior had made us really look forward to being there. The animals were really clean and yes no smells. Al the pig was really charming. Not our first stay in a place with animals but this is by far the cleanest. Thanks Janine!

    Stayed in one of the cottages for a weekend with friends. The whole place was well presented and welcoming. The animals in the paddocks were great to see and pet. The cottages were well equipped, spacious, private and super comfortable. The pool was a lovely temperature and clean. I would highly recommend a stay here. Thank you for your hospitality

    Thanks so much for hosting us John and Di. We thoroughly enjoyed catching up with you and loved our cottage. Beautiful setting and so quiet, but handy to local amenities. The perfect place to relax.

    We are looking forward to returning.
