Nestled between Te Mata Peak and the Tukituki River, you will find this modern three-bedroom home, designed to perfection. Welcome to River Range Cottage!

Surrounded by countryside, this retreat offers the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and instead focus on the simple pleasures, like reading a good book in the sunshine with a cold drink in hand!

With magnificent views, this is an excellent place to relax after days spent soaking up some Hawke's Bay charm. Check out the rugged coastline and visit the surrounding vineyards, then bring a bottle of your favourite back to enjoy on your sun-drenched deck.

River Range Cottage features modern comforts and chic decor that create the atmosphere of a luxurious and contemporary retreat. Add to that seamless indoor-outdoor flow framing Te Mata Peak, and you'll find there really is no place like it!

The open-plan living space is made up of a fully equipped kitchen with a marble breakfast bar, a large family dining table, and a stunning turmeric-yellow leather couch. This all opens out onto the generous sundeck, spanning the length of the west-facing side of the home. Imagine alfresco dining with a view like this, with the BBQ sizzling away in the background.

River Range Cottage is kitted out with everything you might need while away on holiday. Enjoy WiFi and a Smart TV with Freeview for your entertainment, and a fully ducted warm and cool air conditioning system for ideal temperature control throughout the entire house.

Leave the car at home and make the most of private access to the Tukituki River and the Craggy Range vineyard right next door. Or, take a short drive out to Black Barn Estate and Bistro for fantastic food and world renowned local wine.

Havelock North Village is just a five-minute drive from River Range Cottage, through tree-lined streets showcasing heritage homes. Here you'll find a plethora of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes to choose from, as well as all the modern conveniences.

For the nature lovers or those looking for a rewarding trek, Te Mata Peak, redwood forests, and multiple walking trails are also right on your doorstep!

Property fantastic well done to the owners enjoyed our stay well thought out layout. Beds very comfortable. Bachcare communication Not good though. Bachcare just kept using generic messages instead of answering questions. No information to get into property was emailed had to chase them up by phone 5 hours before we arrived by many phone calls to get instructions

We are a family of five, with three young children (5, 3 and 7 months). We had a fabulous stay at this house and could not fault it. The owners were very accommodating and supplied a high chair, good quality cot with mattress and even a changing mat for our baby. There was all the basic provisions to get you started in the kitchen which we really appreciated. The house is sunny and warm and has top quality appliances. The kitchen is excellent and well equipped with everything you need. It is rare to find a house so well appointed and comfortable. The location was ideal for us being a short drive to the centre of Havelock North and Hastings and walking distance to Craggy Range for a superb lunch. The outside of the house with the river nearby is great for kids. We hope to return again someday. Thank you for having us.

This is a great little hide away. Amazing views of Te Mata Peak and a little stroll down the back to the Tuki Tuki River. 10 mins away from Havelock North. Highly recommend
