Catherine was a wonderful hostess, who made our stay very comfortable. We enjoyed the spaciousness and quiet of our room and freedom to move about and enjoy our own living room. The view was amazing. Catherine makes fabulous Croissants, too!! Would highly recommend.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, even though we are so close to town, due to the elevation of the house, it is peaceful - apart from hearing those waves roll in of course! Glad you enjoyed the croissants too. Regards Catherine

Catherine is a great host who has the knack of knowing just how much time to spend with her guests and how much to leave them to their own devices. Fabulous house with antique furniture,lovely comfortable room, great view...

Fantastic property with lovely period furnishings, situated just up from the sea front. On the front is a good set of outdoor pools so it was imperative to have a swim before breakfast. The host was super friendly, breakfast wonderful. We were the only guests at the time and had all the top floor to ourselves, so felt very luxurious...

Beautiful rooms with a view of Hawks Bay. Lovely balcony and common room. Great location, although get directions. It is a bit hard to find. Catherine is an enthusiastic and fantastic host! We were traveling with another couple so it was a perfect arrangement. Wish we had booked for longer.

We stayed at Seaview for 2 days during our honeymoon trip through New Zealand. The views to the ocean were nice; but the location to Napier and everything it has to offer was even better.
