Magical place

The cottage is exquisite - classy and beautifully furnished and comfortable at the same time. It is in a stunning location with the sound of the sea and the peace of the countryside yet superb winery food is five minutes away. The owner and manager were both wonderful to communicate with and very welcoming and helpful. A very lovely place and a great find - highly recommended.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed the cottage and the surrounds so much and we really hope to host you again in the future !

Weekend Retreat

We had a amazing weekend away here, the cottage was lovely hide away and so peaceful. The presentation was immaculate and the communication we got from Annabel was second to none. We will be back for sure.

We are pleased to hear you had such a positive experience at Te Awamga cottages. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

Fabulous Experience

A HUGE thank you for the wonderful experience that we had over the weekend at your cottage. The accommodation was first class and extremely well priced. Everything we needed was there, the house was really clean and tidy and very well equipped. We particularly liked the additional touches of cooking oils, vinegar, salt and pepper in the kitchen. We also appreciated being able to catch up on our washing. We travel a lot and the features of your accommodation were first rate. We have stayed at many different self contained cottages over the past few years. All offer different things, but we felt for value for money, location and service Te Awanga Cottages were first on the list. We will definitely be coming back to stay!

Hi Jill. We are pleased you had such a great experience and appreciated all the additional touches. We look forward to hosting you again soon.

Can't fault it!

I was lucky enough to spend one night of rest and relaxation at Te Awanga cottages and only wished I could have stayed longer! The accommodation is spacious, modern, immaculately clean and is equipped with everything you could need for a short or long term getaway. The location couldn't be better with Cape Kidnappers, cafes, wineries and the beach all within walking distance. But the highlight for me was relaxing in the indoor/outdoor bath looking out to the orchard watching the sunrise through the trees. Thank you so much, I will be back.

Thank you Rose. We look forward to having you to stay again soon.

5 Star Paradise in Te Awanga

Wow. What can I even say. This place is a piece of paradise. Thank you so much for your beautiful accommodation. Me and my wife stayed for 3 nights and it was perfect for what we wanted it for. Great distance from Napier town centre (20 minute drive). 10 minute drive to the beautiful town of Havelock North. Sensational walks around the local village and along the beach front. Te Awanga cottages has everything you need for a beautiful, peaceful and romantic weekend or long weekend away. The gas fire place was so very welcome on the 3 chilly mornings we had when waking up. Also enjoyed the fire place in the evening looking out at the beautiful view and watching the sunset. Enjoyed within the property and out on the deck with the very comfortable and generous size chairs. With a blanket on one night and of course a hot steaming cup of coffee made with the plungers provided. (Hugely appreciated by me as I'm a full time barista and enjoyed having the luxury of making good coffee). Both bathroom areas were very well stocked, very clean and very warm. Loved having the bath tub and the option also of looking out at the view and sometimes in the morning watching the sunrise. Just spectacular. The kitchen was very well stocked with all utensils, cooking trays, washing liquid, dish washer and great oven and stove top. Loved the option of having the washing machine if we needed it. The bedroom was a fantastic size. Very spacious and the bed itself was super comfortable. I found the pillows quite hard but this is me being stupid and the only thing that stood out too me. Electric blanket was super cozy. We couldn't fault any part of this beautiful cottage. When we return to hawkes bay we won't be staying anywhere else. This is us now! Thank you once again and we surely will be back soon!!

We stayed at the cottage for our wedding

We stayed at the cottage for our wedding. The cottage was secluded, peaceful, clean, and tastefully furnished. We had everything we needed and lots of space. I would love to stay there again and I would highly recommend it.
