“Warm welcome with great touches. The use of the bikes and helmets to hit Hygge for breakfast was a really nice way to start the day. Being across the street from a private beach also lead to great sunrise photo ops. The ducks/birds around the area are super friendly and quite entertaining. A parking space right by the front door on a super quiet street was another bonus. The space worked perfectly for our adventures!”
Our Cottage has recently been renovated to accommodate travellers. It is warm and cosy in the winter and with a large living space in which to relax. The cottage is in the centre of the Te Mata wine region, in close proximity to wineries including Black Barn, Craggy Range and the Te Mata Estate. It is a 5 minute drive to the centre of Havelock North, a thriving cafe and easy shopping centre. Wai iti Cottage is a good walk/bike ride from the concert venue and market at Black Barn Winery.
“We loved being at Robyn’s place for our honeymoon stay in Hawke’s Bay! The house is SO cute, surrounded by beautiful plants, and flowers, and very close to several vineyards. She even left us some homegrown tomatoes, yogurt, and croissants to enjoy during our stay. We had plenty of space for 2 of us, and could have easily fit at least 6 others if we were with a bigger group. Highly recommend staying here. Thank you Robyn!”

“11/10 AirBnB. This place has everything you could want and more. We borrowed the bikes and visited 4 wineries in an afternoon, but you could easily do 7 or 8 in a day with about 30km of riding. Super easy access to the bike trails which are mostly flat, very well maintained and safe. The room was warm and cozy, set in a beautiful country setting. The bed is really comfy. We could race about this place for an hour, will definitely be back if we are ever in the bay.”
