Beautiful rooms with comfy big bed, and the room smells of Roses :-)lovely to walk around the garden. It's very quiet place and sometimes at night you can hear waves crashing...

Comfortable, private cottages set in a lovely garden in a quiet location that's convenient to Napier and Havelock North. Jacquie, Ski and their black Labrador made us welcome from the moment we arrived and provided some great recommendations of local restaurants. The cottage we stayed in is modern, well maintained and ideal for our family of 3 adults and a...

Tucked away in your own private slice of heaven, with everything you could wish for, at hand. Each of these cottages has seclusion, privacy and comfort, and the hosts Jacquie and Ski were most accommodating. Our extended family took all 3 cottages for the weekend, wish we could have stayed longer. Great value & comfort for self catering family or...

Nice cute little cottage with a beautiful landscaped garden. An absolutely cozy and warm place to stay for holidays. Jacquie and Ski are very friendly and helpful. Too bad that we only got to stay one night. Would love to come back again. It just one thing that could be improved, the shower. It would be better to have a...

Thank you for your review. We do appreciate people making the effort to do this. I absolutely understand your thoughts re the shower however they were designed this way so that our cottages are also user friendly for people with physical disabilities. Makes for a wee bit of a compromise in design but works for able bodied and those not...

Jacquie and Ski were very accommodating to our needs for the trip. They are also responsive to email which was important coming from abroad. You are only 10-15 minutes from all of the towns and wineries. There are even a few low-key restaurants down the road from the cottages. After spending a lot of time in hotels on this trip,...

The cottages were ideal for the occasion of our daughter's wedding at a nearby homestead. We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble especially when we had a family dinner for 22 in the garden the night before the wedding..Fruit and vegetables in the garden were ours as we needed,. The garden setting was perfect...
