Overview

Photos and Description of this Parkvale holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

John's House is an architectural gem - one of the last designed by John Scott and built in 1990. John's House shares space on our sublime rural property with our own home and the recently completed Pete Bossley designed 'Pavilion' . We have over 2 hectares of rural paradise just 3 minutes drive from both Havelock North and Hastings. Massive lawns and gardens with a mix of natives, exotics and fruit trees plus a large pond, swimming pool

John's House can be your base to explore the best of Hawke's Bay - most major attractions are within 20 minutes drive - or a destination in itself with the perfect ingredients for peace, calm and comfort.

Enjoy a complimentary breakfast of homemade bread and preserves, muesli, fresh fruit and farm eggs before the day's activities.

The property is also a wonderful venue for functions. We are pet and children friendly and very happy to share our knowledge of the area and provide some pretty special ideas for 'things to do'.

These might include exploring the extensive cycle trails through a wide variety of landscape around the bay, taking a wine tasting tour, or spending a leisurely Sunday morning at New Zealand's best farmers' market - just along the road in Hastings. Buy some fresh or gourmet ingredients to create a fabulous meal to enjoy at John's House, in front of an open fire And for all the architecture aficionados there's also Art Deco style to enjoy in Napier, only 20 minutes' drive away, and a lovely hot swim.

Te Mata Park in Havelock North provides fabulous walking trails through redwood and native forests, as well as an amazing view from the top of Te Mata Peak. So much to see - at any month of the year, John's House provides the perfect base from which to enjoy a great holiday, for all the family.

Special conditions:

For 'Long' Holiday weekends a 3 night minimum booking is required.

Pets are welcome by prior arrangement but the property is not entirely fenced.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);

The house is so beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The house is so beautiful. It is such a retreat! It is very private and a lovely house to escape to. It is spacious, has a 'home' feel and has everything you need there. There is plenty to do in the area but relaxing around the house is just as nice! I would definatley stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks!!!

We did not want to leave! What an absolutely delightful place, both in the setting and inside.

We did not want to leave! What an absolutely delightful place, both in the setting and inside. The welcome pack was such a nice touch too. The exceptional treatment we had here is so rare and it was just wonderful to have. There is not a thing you could want more of from this place. So close to the village yet you feel like you've escaped from the world in a picturesque sanctuary. We most definitely will be back! Thank you so much for your hospitality.
