Additional guests in the Captain's Cottage will be charged extra. Breakfast Do you have an Airport in Hawke's Bay and can you pick us up? Yes, Napier has a modern new Airport with multiple connections a day to Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. Yes, we love to pick you up on a cost contribution-based. The scenic route from the Airport to the Coast Hotel is a 40 minutes drive. Best combined with some detours to see some Highlights of the Bay Play video 02:25 Can you recommend a wine tour? The Winemaker Tour is our favourite. Don Bird is a very experienced winemaker born and bred in Hawke's Bay. Don can pick you up at our Boutique Hotel. Watch the video about the "Hawke's Bay Wine Region" to get an idea why an excellent wine tour needs an entire day. Play video 05:24 Can we walk to the Beach and is it a sand beach? Yes, but we do not recommend it. It's a half-hour walk through farmland with life stock down to the Waimarama Beach. Walking back up takes double the time and is tiring. Ocean Beach next door is our favourite. A 10-minute drive. A drive to Waimarama-Beach is 8 minutes and includes a welcome stop for an Ice-Cream. Yes, it is a lovely sand beach. Is this accommodation suitable for a family with a baby and a 5-year-old.? Yes, we do have a second bedroom with a queen bed and we can provide for the baby a porta cot Family with children are very welcomed.
