About Us

The Colonial Cottages are a family run boutique accommodation business, and we take great pride in offering all of our guests a peacefully unique and memorable stay. Nestled amongst nature, this quiet escape is only a short drive from the Art Deco capital of Napier, as well as Hastings and Havelock North. There is also a quiet pebble beach a few minutes walk away with great views of the coastline, and a perfect sunrise spot.

Meet Your Host

Hi, Tony & I are so excited to be the new owners of this wonderfully unique accommodation business. Over the past few decades, like many New Zealanders, we have explored our own backyard and beyond - and after having stayed in a plethora of different accommodations we know what makes for a memorable escape. We continue to use our experience and inspiration to offer each and every guest that passes through our gates the highest quality stay. 

We have both lived in Hawkes Bay for the majority of our lives, and have raised 6 children here. After all these years, we have managed to scout out some great spots for almost anybody: from hikers to sun bathers, from coffee connoisseurs to wine lovers, from arts and culture enthusiasts to shopaholics and everyone in between! And for the cyclists, the Hawkes Bay cycle tracks are practically on our doorstep, located approximately 200 metres from us.

Our children are now all grown up, but we still have a couple of cats and dogs to keep us busy, not to mention the dozens of chickens who lay delicious eggs for all our guests to enjoy as part of their first morning breakfast. 

We look forward to meeting you, and hope you enjoy your stay with us.

Wamest regards,

Rachel & Tony Wrigley
