About Us

A wonderful place to B&B in the art deco capital of the world. Murray and Jacquie look forward to welcoming you to their home on the hill with its 360° panoramic views. Enjoy a refreshing cuppa or a glass of chilled Hawke’s Bay wine whilst you unwind after your journey. 

Hosts: Murray & Jacquie Sutherland


Having spent 18 years in Europe, during which time we travelled extensively both in Europe and elsewhere in the world, we decided to make our home back in NZ. During our travels we had some wonderful experiences staying in hosted accommodation which we hope we can replicate.


We would be happy to help you with any arrangements which will make your stay in Hawke’s Bay as enjoyable as possible.


Whether you want to chill on the beach, visit some of the world famous wineries or try your luck on one of the Bay’s challenging golf courses, or are here to visit relatives in Care Homes, we can make the arrangements for you.


We offer evening meals, on request. This is a set menu, all we need to know is what you don’t, or can’t, eat! For those of you wishing to dine in one of Napier’s many excellent eateries, you are invited to join us in the lounge or on the deck beforehand for a glass of Hawke’s Bay wine and some nibbles, made from the Bay’s local produce.


We are a non-smoking facility and on arrival will also be welcomed by our very friendly 8 year old Jack Russell, Mac, and Tosh, our 8 ½ year old tabby.
