Seaside Heritage Villa, Napier (New Zealand - Hawkes Bay - Napier)

Our Guest Book

  • Heavenly.

    Sue and Howard's charming, historic home is located perfectly to enjoy the many jewels of Napier, with expansive views looking onto Hawke Bay. The gardens are divine and the house is filled with artwork, crafts and fascinating history while still feeling airy and spacious. There's a very smart, modern kitchen and the bed was super comfie. A peaceful neighbourhood with many friendly folks, which I must say is typical of Napierites. There's a 25m lap pool and hot spas only a 10 minute walk from the front door. We enjoyed many cycling adventures, visiting the vineyards, Te Mana peak, the waterfront, art galleries etc. and returned from our holiday with a multitude of marvelous memories. Thank you Sue and Howard for sharing your slice of heaven.

  • Howard and Sue are a lovely couple and they met us at the door, showed us around their charming historic home, gave us some lunch and presented us with a very thoughtful gift before departing for Wellington to stay in their apartment, as they are coming to us in 2020. The position was amazing overlooking all of Napier, and especially at night. The house was well equipped with everything we needed and luckily we are both fairly fit as the stairs both inside and outside are fairly steep - not really suitable for Octogenarians ! It was really central to the charming town of Napier and all it's famous Art-Deco plus surrounding vineyards and beautiful scenery. A great exchange.
