Ski and Jacqui genuinely go the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as it can be. The heating and lighting was on when we arrived, there were fresh flowers, chocolate, cookies home made jam and plenty of breakfast provisions. The garden is full of natures treats. The cottages themselves are really well appointed, super clean and super cozy....

Lawn Cottages provided us with superb comfort. Our two -bedroomed cottage was comfortably furnished with every conceivable amenity. Probably the best accommodation we have ever experienced. Host Jacquie was extremely helpful and made us feel completely at home. The cottages are set in stunning grounds which provided complete relaxation.

Both Jacquie and Ski were more than accomodating during our stay in early February for our wedding. Ski really went out of his way to help where he could, even on his birthday! The grounds and Cottages are gorgeous and it really feels like you are in your own oasis and out of the rat race. I highly recommend Lawn...

WOW! Highly recommend Lawn Cottages in Clive, Hawke's Bay. The bed and linen just luxury. Everything you needed and more plus private and peaceful. Central to some of the amazing vineyards. The owners were very friendly and generous. Even given access to their incredible garden which they grow for their guests! Could not fault this piece of paradise :)

We rented both Flax and Magnolia cottages. We were two families with children between 6 to 9. The children love the gardens. We spent the entire Xmas day soaking in the beautiful scenic setting. Hosts Jacquie and Ski were terrific and extremely helpful. The location was central to a lot of places in Hawkes Bay. Highly recommend!

Jacquie-and-Ski, Owner at Lawn Cottages, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We have taken on board your comments about the extra bed. This is not something we normally do and only provide it in response to a guest request where they would like 5 people in a cottage rather than the 4 it is set up for. I am always clear...
