Contemporary lodge near the Te Awanga coast
2 guests · 1 bedroom · 1.5 baths
World-class wine and incredible architecture await at this breezy smart home on the Elephant Hill Vineyards in New Zealand. Spend your mornings sipping Nespresso while you sit amongst lush gardens. In the afternoon, cool off in the swimming pool while you gaze upon views of the rolling hillside. After you’ve tasted the cuisine at the Elephant Hill’s restaurant, head 14km to check out Hastings.
Designed to merge indoor and outdoor spaces, this U-shaped lodge features multiple floor-to-ceiling openings in nearly every room. From the minimalistic, yet super-spacious kitchen, to the dining room, and onto to the courtyard, your dinner parties will flow as freely as the breeze. Pick the perfect pairing from the wine cellar, turn up the sound system, and see where the night takes you.
For lunch, gather the group at the alfresco set for a backyard barbecue. After, see if there’s any rugby on the satellite or stretch out in the library with a good book. The villa comes with Wi-Fi and an office space if you are keeping up with work. And, there’s are a variety of add-ons available including fitness classes, excursions, and private chef services. The lodge comes with garage parking for 1, and there are 5 more spaces in the driveway.
Rebuilt after a devasting earthquake in 1931, the city of Napier rebuilt in eye-popping Art Deco fashion. See the sites from the back of a vintage car with Napier Classic Car’s architecture tour or go for a walk with Art Deco Trust. After a tour of the city, take a self-guided-audio-handset tour through the old cells and creepy corridors of the country’s oldest correctional facility, Napier Prison.
