Our home is (was) part of an historic woolstore in Ahuriri, it is spacious, light and very unique. We are a 5 minute walk to about 20 bars, cafes, pubs in the area. We are just 1 road back from a safe swimming beach if you are here in summer.
Historic warehouse styled home near the sea in the increasingly popular area of Ahuriri.
You will have the use of an upstairs wing of the house with your own bathroom, lounge, and study area. Walking distance to restaurants, bars, the beach and the local fishing port.
Help yourself to breakfast or walk to one of the many cafes that offer some of the best food and coffee that Hawke's Bay has to offer. This will be a stay that you will remember!
The nearby beach is just a short stroll away, it provides safe swimming or, if you wish, get a pizza or other takeaway from one of the many food outlets in this delightful area and enjoy a peaceful meal whilst sitting on the beach and watching the sun set.
There is access nearby to the walkway/cycleway that offers safe and enjoyable riding for all ages and all levels and covers a large part of Hawke's Bay.
There is one bedroom with a double bed ( NB, it is a double bed, NOT a Queen ) another bedroom with two single beds and there are three other single beds in the study and living areas.
'Wi Fi, own bathroom, own fridge, own TV, lounge area, our kitchen available for breakfast use. Sorry, we do not make our kitchen available for the preparation of meals other than breakfast but there are a multitude of cafes, bars and restaurants within walking distance.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as the guests want. We both love meeting people but also aware that some people just want to do their own thing and have some peace and quiet.
We are right in the heart of Ahuriri township, we have the best bars, cafes, restaurants in Napier and wonderful areas to walk along to enjoy the waterfront.
There is a bus service nearby that runs into the city. There is a cycle hire operator close too.
Sorry, no entertaining friends and please be respectful with regards to noise after 10 pm ( i.e. use of music, playing movies, (website hidden) etc ).
Bruce and Kathy were extremely welcoming, personable and always willing to give valuable tips on local restaurants and things to see and do in the area. The accommodation is very conveniently located, spacious and a great value. I would love to have the opportunity to stay with them again.
The stay with Bruce and Cathy was very nice. They both love to share their stories and help with local recommendations.
You are having your own private space with enough beds to sleep four. The double bed is ok if you like to cuddle a lot but if you would like to have a little bit more space just use one of the remaining beds.
The location is great to a lot of bars and cafes. The Milk and Honey is a good place to have breakfast! We loved it there!
As the rooms are very high and have upper windows the moon, Sun or the lights outside shine into your room. For us it was perfectly fine.
Staying at Bruce's studio was our first airbnb experience. The place was great and quite comfortable. Bruce and his wife were very welcoming and great with all their recommendations of local places to eat plus wineries to visit. We very much enjoyed our stay.
Bruce and Kathy made us feel very welcome. We were pleasantly surprised with our accommodation. If anything it is under-rated. Bruce and Kathy were kind enough to point out local places of interest and the best local places to eat and drink. Staying with locals certainly made our stay much more enjoyable. We would happily return
Bruce and Karen were perfect hosts. They went to great lengths to communicate with us before we arrived, welcomed us into our space and sent us off with recommendations for dining, wineries and helped us book a trip to see the gannet colony. We had a wonderful time and wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were comfortable, clean and the beds slept well!
I really enjoyed staying in this apartment. The rooms are lovely, spacious and very comfortable. Kathy and Bruce are gracious hosts. Highly recommended!
Clean and comfortable. Close to beach and convenient interesting location. Kathy was helpful and friendly. Recommended for anyone.
