Hawthorne House

Hawthorne House is a gracious Edwardian villa, nestled in a peaceful setting in the heart of Hawke's Bay wine region. Surrounded by mature gardens and sweeping lawns the villa offers a charming retreat from which to explore the Art Deco attractions of Napier, the stunning coastline and the region's wineries.

Outside you can indulge in a game of pétanque or croquet, then dine on the open air terrace before retreating inside to relax in front of the large log fire. The four spacious en suite bedrooms are well appointed for your comfort and convenience and each boasts fine bed linen and private veranda.
