This was a completely unique experience. From the moment of arrival until our departure, Dietske and Gary created a warm, memorable and comfortable stay in the delightful Hawkes Bay region. Their home is bright and welcoming. They are consummate hosts. Gary's cuisine is unparalleled. He delights in cooking, and a dinner at the Manse is a must. Breakfasts are magnificent,...

It's a beautiful place, not really suitable for kids. Couldn't wish for a better location nor a more beautifully appointed room and public rooms. It's beautifully kept and decorated. It would suit those who appreciate the finer wines and dining, I found it all a bit self important from a dining perspective. Don't misunderstand, the food was good/ great and...

There are only 2 guest bedrooms, which is nice. Our room was very tasefully decorated, lovely comfortable beds,...

Lovely elevated location with excellent views, charming hosts and the most amazing food. Do not stay here and eat out. This was one of our best meals anywhere, ever ! Just two rooms, very comfortable and ever attention to detail. A real jem.

On our second stop on our honeymoon we didn't know what to expect; and then we arrived at The Manse, a true luxurious pocket surrounded by paradise. Driving up the cascading driveway, we were met by the wonderful Gary and Dietske our hosts for the next 4days. Warm, wonderful and kind, our two hosts showed us around and let us...

We stayed at the Manse for two nights on our tour of New Zealand. We fell in love with it straight away super pretty with stunning views. We were made to feel truly welcome by Dietske and Gary from the first minute after what was a pretty long drive. Everything was perfect! It was very relaxed and Dietske was really...
