Enjoy the sound of the birds among the trees

Family-friendly Napier chalet in Hospital Hill, near Marine Parade
Five minutes walk to the centre of town, this charming fully-furnished family home is set among trees in a quiet location across the road from Gleeson Park. This reserve is mainly lawn and trees with a small playground for children, and is suitable for family games and picnics ... bring your badminton net!
Designed and built by an architect in the 1960s, the quirky home has many interesting features including a narrow sky-view strip that runs the length of the roof. Very little has been modified over the years, apart from the original balcony. This was completely rebuilt (2017) to comply with modern building-safety standards.
The master bedroom upstairs has a small bridge that leads across to an elevated private garden with fruit trees.
While the main bathroom has a shower, toilet and bath, upstairs there's a second toilet with hand basin.
Being a chalet style with open stairs, our holiday home is not ideally suited for wee toddlers or the infirm. We have a portacot available for babies.
Off street parking is available for up to three vehicles.
Special conditions:
Minimum stay 2 nights.
$190 per night for 2 adults, plus $10 per night per extra person.

Unexpectedly gorgeous property, with everything we could possibly need. The listing description doesn't do it justice. This house is perfect and Ron is a lovely, caring man who really wants his guests to enjoy their stay.

Had a great stay in this interesting house! Very accessible to centre of Napier and had everything we needed, was just a bit cold on our arrival. Otherwise, had a lovely time! Thanks Ron
