Our 4th stay and we keep coming back for longer and longer (all the way from Scotland, this time for 9 weeks!) to this brilliant cottage with such lovely, peaceful surroundings. This is truly home from home and with such great hosts to look after us! The cottage is always spotless and very comfortable and has great things to occupy you on a pleasant afternoon if you want to take it easy, such as a game of petanque or just watching the ducks as you take a walk round your own private lake. Sipping a glass of wine (or beer) on the deck listening to the birds and hearing the distant waves on the shore is bliss if you want to chill out. Feeding the ducks every day is a treat and so is feeding the sheep with scraps of waste food - great for recycling! It's situation is also just right for making it a base to explore New Zealand and being close to Napier you have the best of both worlds if you want a bit of culture too. We love it so much we have booked another visit for next year already!

Not only is this a well-equipped cottage beautifully maintained it also has an award-winning garden round the lake using native flora and lots of wildlife to see. A great place to stay.

We loved staying here - well appointed cottage that is warm and comfortable with lake, hill and garden views. I loved walking on the beach watching the surf-casters and even spotted a lost seal. We also loved the swim and the spa, and the proximity to the many events in Hawkes Bay. The ducks made sure we fed them and thoroughly enjoyed watching the quail grazing in the early morning. Jan and Mike are very friendly and warm hosts. Very relaxing and we hope to be back. Thank you.

Stayed here around the Easter break and had a wonderful time. This place was perfect for our family with our two kids. Lots to do here and Mike and Jan were more than accommodating. The cottage has everything you need and is a wonderful step away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Walks around the pond, beaches close by and a having the pool and spa at the main house was such a luxury and bonus. Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone. We'll be back ourselves, loved it. Thanks Mike and Jan.

It is both private and luxurious, with great friendly hosts. It has the advantage of being a short distance out of Napier-approx. 15 mins away by car and , if you are looking for a tranquil place to relax this is it! The lovely gardens and lake were a bonus, as was the use of the pool.
We really enjoyed our stay and found it hard to leave! Thanks!

We have stayed at Lakeside several times. As a "getaway" the location and facilities are terrific, we have two small dogs and the secure surroundings are perfect. What we always admire about the place is the high level of cleanliness and attention to detail that Mike and Jan maintain. Which of course is the hallmark of excellence. For well appointed facilities, beautiful surroundings, peace, tranquility (save the odd lorry passing by in the distance) a stay at Lakeside Cottage would be difficult to surpass. Disappointed is not a word you'll find in the guest book. Tony, Anya, Danny and Molly

This is our 3rd visit from Scotland in 6 years and we just had to come again for 7 weeks to this wonderful cottage with its fantastic and relaxing setting. There is nothing nicer than listening to the birds and ducks while having a leisurely breakfast on the decking or cooking the occasional BBQ. An evening walk round the lake before tea or a row in the boat is a must! The cottage is well placed to use as a base for going further afield too, being near the Thermal Highway and the Coastal Highway. The great thing is that it is in a rural setting but only about 10 mins drive to the wonderful Art Deco town of Napier. Our hosts Mike and Jan, who live nearby up a hill, were so kind and helpful with advice about what to see and do which all made for a wonderful holiday. We will be back again as we still didn't do everything we wanted to do this visit!

'Unique' is the word that sums up Lakeside cottage beautifully. The setting is absolutely breathtaking and tranquil with private use of the Lake. We all enjoyed taking turns rowing the boat and feeding the ducks each morning on request! The grounds are beautifully maintained and the cottage is impeccably clean, tidy and well equipped. Due to the great weather, we thoroughly enjoyed a cool off in the pool and relax in the Spa pool. Both Mike and Jan were extremely hospitable and friendly whilst respecting our privacy. Just to mention the Swimming Pool, Spa and internet access are off site at the Hosts house which is a short walk away up the hill. The location for Napier and surrounds is great being just off the Highway but a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of life. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to all our Family and Friends and look forward to returning again.

We stayed at Easter with our poochon Pepe - Mike & Jan were great, saw them briefly on check-in and again at check-out - lovely generous folk. The cottage is fantastic, overlooking your own lake (friendly ducks visit for their fill of maize), sheep grazing nearby - a lovely quiet relaxing spot. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away from the maddening crowd. The cottage has absolutely everything you could think of - very cosy.
