Bright, airy, & spacious modern guest flat attached to a family home. Well situated for the Church Rd vineyards, not far from SH2 so getting into the city centre, & visiting Hastings / Havelock North is quick & easy. Tea, coffee, milk, bread and some other breakfast items supplied. Well behaved dogs are most welcome. The flat is completely self-contained & has its own front door access, off-road parking space, fenced-off deck area with table set, & access to the main garden, BBQ, & fruit trees!

The space
The huge bedroom can be configured as such: Queen size bed only; Queen size bed & single bed; Queen size bed & Queen size airbed - the choice is yours! There is plenty room in the living area for the Queen sized airbed (or single bed) if required. Just let us know how many guests are staying & how you'd like it set up. There is a washing machine in the bathroom and a rotary clothes line outside for drying clothes. The kitchen is fully equipped, & if there's anything you can't find, just ask and we will provide it (within reason!). In the main living area there is a large dining table with 4 seats, a comfy sofa with footstool, a La-Z-Boy recliner, TV (freeview) & DVD player. There is also a good selection of DVDs and books for guest use. The TV has a GoogleChromecast device so you can stream videos from your own device. There is unlimited Wi-Fi available in all areas of the accommodation. The living area opens up onto a deck (fenced-off & recessed from the main house for a bit of privacy!) where there is a 4 seater Rattan table set for you to enjoy some al fresco dining. The deck is covered by its own shade sail. If you are not keen on dogs, please let us know & we will keep our Retriever out of your way (she is very friendly and keen to greet visitors!) - please also note that we have 4 super-soppy farm dogs that sometimes board in kennels in our garden at weekends.

Guest access
We have a lovely big garden that you are welcome to access (for sunbathing, drying washing, dog exercising, & playing - there is a treefort & a large springfree trampoline!) - however, if you bring your dog, please pick up after it! There are various fruit trees you can help yourself to - December/January peaches, February apples & pears, & April / May limes! Our children and dog(s) play in the garden, so be prepared to share with them!!!

Our fully secure garage can be used by guests for storage of bikes, golf clubs, suitcases etc. We will provide you with a key on request.

Other things to note
Our 2 primary school-age boys & dog(s) play in the garden. Please note, our youngest son is autistic and can occasionally be quite noisy! As the flat is directly attached to our family home, it isn't soundproofed so there can be muffled tv / conversation noise between the 2 living areas. However, the flat bedroom walls aren't connected to the main house and it's peaceful there!

Your beds will be made up for you with fresh, line-dried linen (though it won't be ironed - don't have time for that!). The duvet cover is also freshly changed for each new guest so no top sheet required. If you do like a top sheet, I'm afraid you will have to provide it yourself!

Napier's water supply is chlorinated. However, we have now installed a filter on the mains supply to the flat, so you can enjoy drinking lovely (chlorine-free) water from the taps!

The Hawkes Bay summer can get pretty hot at times. Unfortunately the flat does not have an aircon unit, but there are 2 fans and lots of windows! There is an HRV heating / cooling system in the main house that covers the flat too. If you feel the ceiling vents are blowing too hot or too cold, please ask us to adjust temp / turn off as required.

Napier, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Taradale town centre has a good range of independent shops & places to eat & drink. Nice dog walking area, and the Tutaekuri River reserve (10 min walk or 30 sec drive from accommodation) is good for off-lead walkies, & cooling you & your dog off - a great swimming spot! If you enjoy walking, there are bush walks / hill climbs within easy reach of the accommodation. There are loads of great wineries / cideries within a 10k radius, & wonderful local greengrocers selling delicious Hawkes Bay fruit & veg. Taradale is a perfect base for exploring Napier / Ahuriri, Hastings, & Havelock North. It's only a 20 minute drive to the top of Te Mata peak where, on a clear day, you will get spectacular views over the Hawkes Bay region!
