This was our first exchange and it could not have been better. Brin and Biddy were fabulous hosts and their home was absolutely fantastic in every way. We loved every minute, but particularly loved sitting on the ocean front patio sipping coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings It was an outstanding experience and we were fortunate to have such a wonderful experience right off the bat, particularly given the exchange ended with the start of the COVID shut-down.
We found everything well set out and we were well provided for. We loved the spa especially in the evening with the lights of Napier in the distance. We also enjoyed sitting outside with a coffee watching the ocean. A good place from which to explore Hawkes Bay and we had fun driving to the different areas and then coming home to a cosy house at the end of the day.
We had a most relaxing vacation after a hectic year! The beachfront vista and unique landscaping was even more magical with the amazing sunrise and sunsets. Our accommodation provided all the comforts of home alongside the handy location (within walking distance) of Snapper Cafe and a vineyard establishment. Art Deco Napier also captivated us! Many thanks Biddy and Brin.
It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to stay at Brin and Biddy's delightful beachfront home. The location was quite a contrast to our own neck of the woods and we enjoyed the ever-changing coastal vistas from every room and loved the colorful spring flowers growing on the pebble beach, as well as the bird-life, ships on the horizon nearing the busy port, biking and walking to Snapper Café at the end of the street, We had a very comfortable and relaxing ten days here while seeing all the attractions that the Napier area has to offer.
We had a wonderful stay in your beachfront house. We loved the spa at night and exploring the Hawkes Bay during the day. Our dinner at Crab Farm winery was a highlight.
We loved our stay at Brin and Biddy's home ON THE BEACH. We traveled to South Island as well as the more immediate towns and sighst on the North Island. We met them at their home and ours. They are charming and friendly and good-hearted.
The beach setting was a mesmerizing wonder; bikes and walks lead to cafes and shops. Spectacular shades of green decorated hills, woodlands, ravines, and pastureland. Napier is an interesting town easy driving by the sea to other towns. Brin and Biddy are very friendly and excellent hosts.
