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.

4/5 Good

Great location, loved the outdoor area and the outlook to trees.
Sunny, quirky home with lovely living area.

Our stay in the Bay
There are many good things about this property, including the location, the number of separate rooms, the warm sunny living room and the good communication. However, we did have some concerns about the cleanliness, and part of this might be the lack of appropriate cleaning resources provided. Some Jiff on the toilet could have made a big difference, and clearly the stairs had not been wiped down for a long time. It might pay to have a list of tasks if the cleaning is to be left to guests. We are all older, and we found the beds rather small and uncomfortable - might be fine for younger people.

Quirky and charming
Warm greeting from our host on arrival. Handy location in Napier, easy to find and plenty of room for a large group to stay. All the comforts of home and a lovely outdoor area, but I wouldn’t recommend for a family with small children or elderly people due to steep narrow stairs without rails. Also access to the shower requires a deep step down with no rail to balance. Draperies are used extensively in the decorating of the Chalet, these were a bit of a dust-and-dead insect trap, making the house is a bit musty. Overall we had a pleasant stay and thank our host.
