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.

I love it when a house fits its name perfectly. The snug is cosy and perfect for a weekend get away. The owner was very good with communication and really pleasant to deal with, in fact they helped make the experience. Definitely worth it.

This is a delightfully comfortable home away from home. There were initially some issues - the microwave didn’t work, we were unable to get Sky on the TV, and previous guests had left a lot of rubbish near the back door, which smelled very bad. However, when we contacted the owner, he was apologetic, and spent considerable time on the phone trying sort the TV out. He also arranged for rubbish to be removed, and a new microwave to be delivered the following day. In addition we were given flowers, and offered a refund of 2 nights accommodation, which we have accepted. So in summary - a lovely place to stay, and the owner approachable, and prepared to address the issues we had.
Response from Owner
We fell short of our usual high standards with Pauline and her husband and were happy to compensate them — especially since they were celebrating a special anniversary
