About this listing
This lovely studio apartment is situated in beautiful rural Pakowhai. Centrally located between Napier & Hastings (only 8 minutes each way) with a queen bed, single bed (on request), bathroom, kitchenette and deck, this is the ideal place to relax after a day out and about.
If privacy is what you're after, that's what we can offer. With paddocks separating you from your neighbours you can enjoy the rural scenery from the lovely outdoor deck while enjoying a drink. There is also a separate driveway to access studio.
The studio is fully self contained with all basics supplied such as tea, coffee, linen, towels etc. Kitchenette has a small fridge/freezer and has an electric frypan, bench top oven and microwave for cooking (as well as jug/toaster and sandwich press). A hooded BBQ is also available for use. Access to a washing machine is available on request.
The studio is situated behind the main house and is separated by a large hedge which ensures privacy. That said, if any assistance is required we are always happy to help.
Interaction with guests
We leave our guests to enjoy their stay but are always happy to answer any questions about where to go and what to see. We are also happy to assist with any requests our guests may have. With our home at the front of our lifestyle block (and the studio in the central paddock) it is easy for guests to come to us with any queries or questions.
We love the Pakowhai community as it has all the benefits of rural living yet we are only 10 minutes from Havelock North, 8 minutes from Napier and Hastings and 5 minutes from Taradale.
No public transport is available down our road so private vehicle is required to get into town etc.
Other things to note
The cottage has a good collection of CDs and DVDs for guest use. There is also a dartboard, poker/card set and pétanque set if you feel like a 'day in'. If staying with children a toy box full of toys and books is available and children are welcome to use the trampoline, swing set and bikes available on the property. There is also a cricket set, swingball and many other activities for use in the paddock.
Our rural location is amongst crop paddocks and orchards. It's a lovely peaceful location, mixed with the rare occasion when there's the hum of a distant tractor, crops getting a spray or the birds singing, you get the great country feel.
We have many varieties of fruit trees and large vege gardens. Whenever possible we are happy to share our crops with our guests.
We hope our guests enjoy their stay in the cottage and treat it with respect so others can continue to enjoy it. No smoking in the cottage but you can do so outside if you choose. Wifi use is available for email and Internet browsing but no downloading please. Wifi is available from the main house deck or depending on your device can be accessed from the cottage deck.
