The Manse


Overlooking the beautiful countryside this luxury lodge borders the world-renowned Gimblett Gravels and Ngatarawa wine regions in stunning Hawke’s Bay


This exclusive luxury lodge is set on a hill overlooking the beautiful countryside and beyond to the mountains. Bordering the world-renowned Gimblett Gravels and Ngatarawa wine regions in Hawke’s Bay, it provides the perfect location to visit these famous wineries.

The Manse offers spacious living areas, elegantly furnished with European flair. Two luxury suites feature king size beds, draped with Frette linen. Suites are air-conditioned, have under floor heating, Nespresso machines for coffee, together with tea making facilities, home baked cookies, fresh fruit and bottled water are complimentary. Luxury toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the lodge.

Verandahs and patios open to the gardens and pool and the library is stocked with Cuban Cigars and Malt Whiskies. Pre-dinner drinks and canapés are offered each evening and fine dining is a feature at this luxury lodge. Guests wake to a gourmet breakfast served indoors or out.

Hosts, Dietske and Gary are charming and speak English, Dutch, French and German. Gary is a wonderful chef. Produce is sourced from the farm and it’s fun to take a tour and meet the livestock including sheep, pigs, cattle and free-range hens. Take a cooking class with Gary or enjoy High Tea in the afternoon. Gary is a professional golfer and will, by request, accompany guests to paly golf at Bridge Pa or Cape Kidnappers.

The Manse offers so much on the property, from 4-Wheel drive adventures, Clay Bird shooting, Cooking classes, or Whisky and Cigar tasting. Guests tour the local vineyards, play golf or fly fish in the local rivers. And there is a helicopter landing pad onsite.
