What an incredible stay - if you are overnighting in Napier for any length of time, you should absolutely stay at Robert & Wendy's wonderful home - their hospitality is second to none. Robert has his finger on the pulse of the region, and he went above and beyond to make sure our time in Hawkes Bay was perfect. And the breakfast - wow, the BREAKFAST - what a way to start the day! Felt right at home once we stepped foot in the door, and we truly didn't want to leave.
We had a long weekend here with family, and I don't think we could have asked for a better place to stay! Wendy was an amazing host, going far above and beyond the call of duty. We had amazing breakfast platters every day, with home-made muesli, fresh juice, and delicious bread. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the house was spacious, and the area at th back of the property was perfect for a wine or two. Highly recommend staying here, the hospitality is second to none!
Robert & Wendy were the most AWESOME hosts ever. They do feel like your uncle and auntie! Both of them are well-traveled and this makes breakfast time very enjoyable as we chat for a couple of hours each morning on topics so varied.
The en-suite room with private entrance in and out of the house allows us the privacy we want. As winter gets a bit quiet, we were the only guests in the B&B which is equivalent to having exclusive use of the lounge room which now, after tuning up, is as good as being in a theater. The pair of bikes that the B&B has for guests to borrow are tip-top! We enjoyed cycling to the city center every day even in winter. Breakfast is beautifully laid out every morning and I could not get enough of Wendy's homemade museli. It must be in Napier that we were most well fed throughout our trip. We have already recommended Mission B & B on the Avenue to many friends of ours. This is THE B&B to go to when in Napier!
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Having hosted 100's since 2008, it was gratifying to HOST AIRBNB'ers for the 1st time! (after staying in so many airbnbs ourselves). A really lovely couple full of the joys of living, it was a pleasure meeting you. Lots of interesting conversations re our travels & life experiences. Hope to see you again soon either here or Singapore. warm regards, RS & W
