Beautiful yard, gardens and views of nearby vineyards. Quiet and very peaceful setting. Accomodations and breakfast were amazing. The hosts were most gracious and very helpful to recommend visiting various points of interest in the Napier area.

A stay in NZ reminiscent of an English country home--beautiful flowering gardens on a farm, with charming hosts, wonderful breakfasts, evening wine hour. My only regret is having such a busy touring schedule, I didn't spend enough time enjoying the gardens or playing croquet....

+ It was winter when we stayed in this wonderful house. There was no other guests. The garden is fabulous in winter. We spent much time in the garden.
+ a balcony from the room lead to a magnificent view of their garden
+ Jes and Eileen were friendly and helpful. They put everything you need to know on a piece of paper. So read it before asking the same questions LOL. They invited us to wine tasting in the late afternoon so that we could know each other and talk about our experiences in NZ.
+ excellent breakfast which was prepared by Eileen and Jes. There was even a menu of different options of main courses.

- the road towards their house was rather dark in the evening. Glad that they had put up a light at their house to guide the direction. GPS doesn't help much.
- no heat pump inside the bathroom so it was rather cold.

Room Tip: ask for a room with balcony view to their garden

Thank you very much for your kind words. We hope to see you again some day, perhaps for a longer stay! We note your comment re the bathroom and have installed a heater for the winter.

Back again for our fifth stay and this place really does feel like a home from home. Jes and Eileen have the wonderful knack of making you feel like friends who have come to visit rather than guests in a B&B. And their evening platters, served on request, just get better and better. This lovely, peaceful house with its delightful gardens really is one of our favourite holiday spots.
