Fabulous place to stay. Very private, close to town. Super comfy beds. Well appointed with those little extra touches. Would highly recommend for comfort, cleanliness and convenience. Free wifi too. We stayed in the studio overlooking the alpaca paddock. Good value. Would definately stay again.

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage. The kids loved the playground and the animals, we will have to return in summer to enjoy the pool. The cottage was spacious, very clean and tidy. Our hosts were very friendly, relaxed and accommodating.

Room Tip: Cottage 2 is beside the playground and pool.

Going to bed with alpacas, sheep, ponies and a donkey right next to you is a nice feeling and the animals are friendly enough for a pat as well which takes away the stress of traveling. We got lost mainly because the road sign is non existent but that was our only gripe. The hosts are nice, the studio room quite large and fully functional if you want to cook for yourselves ( you have your own BBQ outside the door as well), the bed is comfy and the bathroom spotless with a beautiful shower. Everything is clean and they have a rule of no shoes inside which suits us as its our rule at home too. Proximity to restaurants etc in Havelock North is close, and this would be a great place for kids to come to as theres a pool plus a playground as well. For something a bit different would highly recommend it. But please, please, can we have Sky Sport on the otherwise fairly extensive Channel availabilities? Like most kiwis I love my sport, as does my wife. That would seem to me to be a vital decision to make when planning an accommodation business in the heart of NZ.

After winning Cottages on St Andrews name the Donkey competition it was great to finally meet Costa! This really is a great place to stay & relax, Di & John are great hoists and make you feel at home. The place has changed a bit since our last visit, the new cottages & swimming pool area are great! Thanks for your hospitality.

Room Tip: Would love to try the new cottages that look straight into the paddocks.

WE HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME. Start to finish the cottages delivered everything we needed this weekend. Sunny, safe, warm, pretty homes on a great setting for kids (who loved the alpacas, pool and playground best of all). The proximity to havelock and the easy bike c trails, fab shopping and restaurants. It simply could not have been better. Oh did I mention the hosts? So kind and helpful.

We arrived pretty late on Friday evening. Flying into Napier, hiring a car and driving to Havelock North in the dark. Thank you Tomtom... Diane was there to geet us, and make sure we were comfortable and warm. After a wonderful sleep ina beatiful bed with cotton sheets, we awoke to find sheep, alpacas, a Shetland pony and a donkey, all quietly grazing on the new green grass right out front. We found breakfast cereals, milk, orange juice, coffee/tea, bread and butter, yoghurt etc all there on shelves and in the fridge. Brand new condition cooking equipment, all super clean and easy to operate. The bathroom is just amazing, heated towel rail, lights with extractor fans and heat globes all working well. The shower and floor providing a non slip surface, no matter how much water was spilled, and we got pretty wet. The lounge room, complete with wall fixed TV, viewable from the main bedroom, and stereo system were first rate. The Swiss blinds complemented the decor, and were easy to operate. We stayed 4 nights, and could have easily stayed for 2 weeks, just drinking in the perfect position, and serenity. We can confidently recommend this establishment to all. There is a pool, and play gym for kids too, and of course the benefits of animals for their enjoyment. We shall return.

Room Tip: Cottage 4 position was perfect

Wow, thanks for the extensive review Vicky!!! I'm so happy we were able to give you a free upgrade to the new Cottage due to your 4 night stay. We so look forward to hosting you both again when you cross the Tasman to come back and visit your family in the Bay. Thanks again.
