  • Love these little places that are not motels and have a lot of character. Heaters not working though, and we had to arrive just as that southerly hit! john & ann williamson - may 2013. 5

  • Hi John - thank you for your nice comments but am worried about the heating. Can you email me on napthenz@gmail to let me know if you mean the electric blankets or the electric heater which had switches on the lower side - I had guests for 2 nights Sunday following your stay with no issues - and was using the heater myself while changing beds! We really don't mind guests calling at the main house if any problems.

  • Cute little hideaway. We were able to travel to napier and hastings easily, in fact we were going to look around more but enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, garden and birds so much that we did not (and shadow the dog!!) great place for a much needed rest. Thanks very much for having us. 5
