Not only the room and ensuite were fantastic, Dan made us feel at home within his home. He is a great host who made us feel like his personal guests. Superb location, minutes walk into town, and if you can, aim to stay when the moon is full for an even greater experience (his deck and window!)
Wir hatten das Glück am Napier Art Deco Festival kurzfristig eine Unterkunft bei Dan zu erhalten. Hier fühlten wir uns geborgen, wie bei einem Freund der Familie. Er hat uns eine Restaurant im Trubel des Festivals besorgt und führte uns durch die Sehenswürdigkeiten des Ortes. Allein der Ausblick von seiner Terasse über Napier ist eine Sehenswürdigkeit.
Our experience here was great! The room and home were beautiful. It was a delight to talk with Dan! He even gave us a tour of downtown Napier! He made a wonderful breakfast, complete with apricot spread he made from his tree. We would have loved to stay for longer!
A very nice visit in an interesting place. Dan is an easygoing and pleasant host. Great place to stay. Walking distance to town centre.
Very welcomed! Dan showed us around, showed us how to get in town and walked part way with us. The BNB was high on a hill with a wonderful view of the water. Easy walk into town for dinner. Dan made reservations for us at his favorite restaurant where the food was delicious! The bed was comfortable with a clean bathroom. We were treated to fruit-oranges and grapefruits from his trees, cheese omelete and toast. Dan is really an interesting host, soft spoken, very well traveled and generally a really nice person, and this was a big reason why we enjoyed staying at this BNB. The design of the house was ok.
Dan is a lovely man, very interesting and a great host. Dan was there to greet us on our arrival and provided us with a fab breakfast in the morning with home grown apricots and home made jam! Dan was very accommodating, helpful and happy to inform us about the town. He even walked us up the road to show us the best way to walk into town. Dan's house and garden are both beautiful with stunning views of the ocean. The room was just what we needed and was clean and tidy. The property is in a great location and a short 10min walk into town. Would definitely recommend staying here if visiting Napier.
My fiance and I stayed in this Art Deco City room on New Years Eve 2014/15.
We had a wonderful experience! The home is absolutely beautiful, surrounded by spectacular gardens and has a stunning view of a huge waterfall to the left and the breathtaking ocean as far as the eye can see. At night, we fell asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the shore below us and woke up to cool ocean breezes in the morning. In the evening, we walked into the city (a short 10-15 min walk through more gorgeous gardens) and explored the buzzy city, a concert in the park for NYE, and strolled along the waterfront enjoying the warm evening air.
Dan (the host) was an absolute pleasure. He greeted us at our car when we arrived and offered to help with our luggage. He showed us around and offered us a drink, but also let us have our time to settle in. He was very respectful of our privacy but always happy to have a chat if we sought him out (he's travelled around the world quite a bit - lived in 6 or so countries - and has some awesome stories, so I definitely suggest you get him to tell you some!).
He offered us a wide range of breakfast options in the morning and we had a lovely chat over coffee. He gave us some great tips about the city and even gave us a map to help us find our way around.
Overall, this was an idyllic experience that I would highly recommend to any travelers stopping through the beautiful, vibrant city of Napier. You won't be disappointed. :)
It was a pleasure to host Dan. He's an easy guest—clean, communicative, quiet, friendly—as well as lovely guy to get to know—he's worldly, funny, curious, and engaging. We happily recommend Dan to the Airbnb hosting world and hope you enjoying meeting him as much as we did. Aloha!
Great tenant! Highly recommended. Thank you for sharing this experience with us and we will be waiting you again whenever you want!
Dan was one of the best guest I have ever hosted!!!! He was extremely clean, polite and I recommend Dan 100%. It was a pleasure to host you and feel free to come back anytime.
