About this Holiday House

Crabtree Cottage, featured in House and Garden January 2017, is the perfect getaway for couples wanting to escape to a super comfortable and stylish house. Situated in the delightful seaside village of Te Awanga it's just a stones throw away from the beach, the famous bike trail, world-class wineries and the Cape Kidnappers golf course. The cottage retains all the charms of the original seaside bach but its fit-out and design are perfect for long summer days and nights whilst in the colder months it's a warm and cosy retreat.

Special Amenities

Set back from Clifton Rd in a young but flourishing Mediterranean inspired garden of artichokes, figs and pomegranates, couples can take cover from the sun in a clever outdoor dining space or relax with a book beneath the pergola draped with flowering hops. There is ample room to entertain a few friends and the kitchen will satisfy the enthusiastic cook wanting to take advantage of the delicious produce Hawkes Bay is so famous for before scrunching down by the fire. Two bikes enable guests to take a short or much longer ride on the bike trail that’s right outside the entrance before relaxing between freshly ironed Egyptian cotton sheets at the end of the day. There's an gorgeous outdoor fire to take the nip off spring and autumn evenings and we hope guests will pick from the abundant fruit trees and herbs in season. Please note Sky TV is the basic package.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Crabtree Cottage is brilliantly situated to enjoy all Hawkes Bay is renowned for. It's minutes from Elephant Hill and Clearview wineries and restaurants, a two minute stroll from the beach famous for surfcasting, right beside the bike trail and the world famous gannet colony is 5 minutes away by vehicle. There are choices of tour operators to get you there or you can take a picnic with you for a half day walk, tide permitting. Our charmingly small and quiet village does provide shopping opportunities though! Take a stroll to Paperworks Art Gallery or explore the huge collection of covetable items bought in from France at So Vintage a couple of hundred metres down the road. Consistently rated one of the world's best golf courses, Cape Kidnappers, is just five minutes up Clifton Rd and The Farm situated at the Cape offers spa treatments of a high standard.

The ideal cottage in Napier. Stylish and very comfortable. Fabulous gardens front and rear. Able to sit out in the covered area at back, even in inclement weather, and hear the birds singing. Prompt, informative communication with hosts. Thank you Nicky and Phil
Response from Owner
Best guests. I just write the reviews. This is what my wife said: You need to write a review that says these are the guests that every host dreams of. It was immaculate. They should get 20 stars.” I actually want to say just thanks.
Fabulous place to stay, secluded and gorgeous. But also close to the beach. Thrilled with it
Response from Owner
Jordyn is an all round five star guest. Faultless. Left the cottage absolutely immaculate.
Could not have asked for more. Totally private, well appointed with excellent furnishings, great bed, easy rent!
Response from Owner
Steve is an excellent guest. He left the cottage perfectly and provided helpful feedback on a couple of things we had missed. Welcome back anytime.
