Cobden Garden Homestay

Responsible Choice

We've hand-selected a range of tours and stays across the world that go above and beyond to be a force for good by supporting local businesses, educating staff, challenging local norms, or promoting conservation and biodiversity efforts. Your Responsible Choice helps increase the positive impact of your trip.

Cobden Garden Homestay is just a ten-minute stroll up the hill from the center of the Art Deco city of Napier, in the heart of a delightful residential suburb of historical houses. The guest rooms are spacious enough for a comfortable night’s rest and have en suite facilities with refillable dispensers for hand soap and shampoo. Other ways in which the property focuses on sustainability include using eco-friendly products in the kitchen and laundry, installing low wattage bulbs, introducing more native plants to the grounds, and consciously eliminating non-recyclable plastic from their operations.

A homemade breakfast of local produce is served in the breakfast room or lounge and your hosts welcome you to join them in the evening for a complimentary wine tasting before you venture out to sample the fine city restaurants.

Along with providing excellent service, your hosts are active members of their community volunteering for a local charity delivering meals, coordinating functions for the tourist board, and volunteering at the Department of Conservation to name just a few.
