About this Holiday House

A charming and private two-bedroom art deco property in central Hastings. Enjoy everything Hawkes Bay has to offer -- wineries, concert weekends, the art deco festival, sports events, the spring horse racing carnival -- from The Snug, a perfect place for a romantic or family retreat. We've owned this property for 25 years and have enjoyed transforming it into something a bit special. Polished wooden floors, quality furnishings and bedding. Satellite television. Free ultra-fast broadband. Modernised kitchen, laundry and bathroom. Heat pump. New ventilation system. Features private courtyard where you can fire up the barbecue and dine under a canopy of vines. The Snug is just a short walk from an emerging part of town with a quirky night spot called The Common Room, a French patisserie, a chocolate maker. An Italian restaurant and a gin distillery are to open soon. There's also a movie theatre and a gym. The property is also available for short or medium-term rental to the right tenants. This could suit companies looking for accommodation for staff. Maybe grandparents who want to be close, but not that close, to their pride and joy. Or maybe someone who just needs to get away for a while. Special rates may apply.

We recently stayed for 4 nights. It is in a very central location for the CBD with Supermarket only about 3 minutes walk. The unit is very clean and tidy with all you need in the kitchen. The weather was quite cold but there is more than enough heating available. Michael was very helpful especially when we had a slight change in our circumstances. There is also a lovely outdoor area that would be great in the warmer weather. We most certainly would recommend for a quiet break for up to 4 people.

The snug is a cool little place to spend a weekend beds are comfortable, easy instructions, two bedroom Deco cute home.
Geoff Webster
Nicely decorated with some unique pieces - check the butcher's block/pot and pan storage in the kitchen! Comfortable beds, well appointed and clean throughout. 3 tips - leave your car on Willowpark Rd near the gate. The local New World supermarket has some eye-watering prices compared to Auckland - beware. We enjoyed the coffee and sensational doughnuts a short walk up Heretaunga St at Cupple/Ya Bon (the bakery).
