Overview

About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, Mezzinine (2 beds) 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

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 suitable for wee toddlers, however we have a portacot for babies.

Off street parking is available for up to three vehicles.

Special conditions:

$180 per night per couple, plus $20 per night per extra adult, ie three couples = $260 per night.

A $100 deposit is required to confirm the booking, and the balance must be paid 7 days before arrival.

Art Deco Weekend and Mission Concert Weekend $400 per night for up to 8 people.

Smoking allowed outside only.

Extras: Linen (included); Free Wifi (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host this family at our bach. They were perfect tenants, easy to deal with, always prompt with their communication and left the house exactly as required. Highly recommended and we would welcome them back anytime.

We loved the quirky, airy, and spacious house. Clean and tidy, and thoughtfully stocked. It had everything we needed. The location is very handy too, walkable to the heart of Napier township. Wonderful experience.

Great chalet close to town. Lots of character and sun! It could get quite hot though (must be lovely in winter). Good amenities as well.
