Overview

Photos and Description of this Napier holiday farmhouse

Farmstay, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

"Lomani Wai" is Fijian for "Beloved Waters,' - a perfect name for this idyllic hideaway.

Fully air conditioned comfort with WiFi included.

Matuku apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and clothes washer.

Nature trails around the wetlands and lake allow you to take in the abundance of native birdlife.

Breakfast and travel transfers by request. Babysitting by arrangement. Dinner and wine tours also able to be arranged. Only minutes to Taradale, Ahuriri, Mission and Church Road wineries, Park Island sports facilities, and about 10 minutes to Napier CBD. Lomani Wai (Fijian for 'Beloved Waters,' ) is operated as a nature reserve homestay. Wake to the call of numerous native birds including Bellbirds, tuis, Fantails, Pukeko, and the very rare Matuku - Australasian Bittern. Also swans, ducks, (introduced and native,) and Dabchicks abound on the lake.

Dogs are welcome by arrangement and a kennel and run is generally available.

There is also available Loloma apartment which has two bedrooms each with its own bathroom (one disabled friendly,) and stunning views over the wetlands and lake. See our "Lomani Wai Nature Reserve Loloma Apt" listing.

Special conditions:

While the lake and wetlands are about 300 metres from the apartment, it is important that children are supervised and Parents remain diligent when children are near the lake. The Owners take no responsibility for unaccompanied children.

While dogs are welcome unfortunately as the areas is home to large numbers of native birds, we cannot have cats on the property.

Beautiful location and property.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and property. Very clean and well maintained. Spacious house with a great layout & fantastic views. Everything was so easy during our stay and we will definitely be back again! Just the perfect place for a daily amble around the lakes with the dogs and to really relax and take stock surrounded by so much wildlife!

The property is in the country with lovely rural views.

  • 4 of 5

The property is in the country with lovely rural views. Many of the trees are young but it will be a truly beautiful property in the future. The birdlife is fantastic with tuis, herons, swans, ducks,kingfishers and more.

It was a very pleasant experience soaking in the spa or even just sitting on the deck with a glass of wine. We really appreciated that the accommodation was dog-friendly. Ralph had a great time!

Everything supplied including a lovely bottle of Mission estate bubbles.

  • 5 of 5

Everything supplied including a lovely bottle of Mission estate bubbles. Location close to town but far enough away to provide peace & quiet & respite from our normal busy lives. Units very well presented with all the amenities needed ie Sky sport, well equipped kitchen & spa pool.
