Visitor Reviews

Jonathan is the perfect host. Very friendly and professional. Lovely home and the spa is the icing on the cake. 5 star B&B!!!

David and Carl, Waikato

Rainbow Cottage is a beautiful property just across the road from the beach. It has a lovely deck and garden at the back. The host Jonathan really knows his trade and made us feel at home. He was also very tolerant of the fact that we locked him out (sorry!).

Kev and Randy, UK

The perfect place to stay in Napier. Jonathan is the most helpful and entertaining host imaginable. Between laughing and learning, we had a great time. He recommends how to get the most out of your stay in one of New Zealand's most beautiful cities. His place is right on the beach with a sheltered, clothing optional backyard. I give it 5 stars as a minimum!

George, California

I have just had a very enjoyable 5 nights at Rainbow Cottage. Jonathan is an excellent host. Very welcoming and the flow of the bedroom onto the private deck space is great. Not to mention the hot tub now too. Great choice of Breakfast and a host who takes time to chat and give great local tips on what to do. Will definitely come back and being in a quiet spot just 10k out of Napier was nice too.

David, Auckland

Lovely stylish room, comfy bed, pleasant outlook to cottage garden with French doors opening to private deck. Our host was friendly and welcoming and we really enjoyed our stay. They went above and beyond in meeting our needs. Will definitely stay again.

Catherine, Raglan, New Zealand

This is the ideal place to stay in Napier. Located on the beach a 10 minute drive from Napier, this lovely home and the lovely, bright, funny guys made for a wonderful stay. Great accommodations: spacious, very private bedroom and bath, adjoining patio and garden, delicious breakfast. Best of all, they know Napier and gave us the skinny on things to do and fantastic places to eat and drink and walk., Highly recommended.
