The house is close to parks, art and culture, great views, restaurants and dining, and the beach. It is great is great for couples, friends, solo adventurers, and business travelers. We have a port-a-cot for small children.
The large queen sized room is situated the downstairs part of the house and has its own vintage style bathroom. Also across from the room is a lovely cigar/study/lounge for guests to sit and enjoy. Upstairs we have a guest loungeroom with tea and coffee making facilities.
Best to use GPS to come straight to the house. Bluff hill is known for its colonial housing and lovely outlook.
Your access includes both the study area across from your room and the upstairs guest loungeroom which has tea and coffee making facilities. You have access to television and a lovely outlook to the streets and distant sea. You also have access to the lovely outdoor deck which is really lovely especially in Summer.
Interaction with guests
We are available when you arrive and are settled. Often we drop guests into the CBD if they don't have transport. At times we also offer to pick guests up if we are available to do so.
We generally like to leave guests to do their own thing. But we can offer ideas as to nice restaurants and things to do in Napier. Check out the great Art Deco too.
Other things to note
At times, especially in busy times (Christmas) we may have two groups of people stay, but that is not very often. The house is very large so there is more than enough room for two couples to stay.

David has grown up in Hawkes Bay and taught both Science and Drama at various High Schools. He also has some land in Onga Onga where he farms cattle, sheep and horses. Mel also has a background in teaching, primary and drama for adults in Auckland. We have both decided to make the leap and come and live in one of our favourite cities, that being Napier on the hill. We both enjoy visiting the local cafes, art galleries, walking along Marine Parade and enjoying the odd glass of wine. We are a relaxed couple who enjoy making guests feel welcome and enjoy their stay.
