Karen’s place is quiet and spacious, the view is incredible and it’s in one of the nicest spots in Hawkes Bay. We loved the thoughtful touches and the awesome breakfast! Thank you, Karen. We would definitely stay here again.

Large space. Beautiful view from the room and kitchen. Lots of natural light, but also has shades if you prefer more privacy.

I loved the proximity to the village and sitting on the sofa watching the sun go down. I enjoyed Karen's hospitality and looking at her art.

We stayed at Karen's house for two nights. It's in a great location walkable to lots of nice restaurants and cafés. It is also very spacious. Karen had some perfect local tips and interesting knowledge of the town.
