Coming home to Parkhill is half the joy of living here. As inhabitants of this part of the world will explain, once you cross the Tuki Tuki River at Black Bridge, you are possessed by an irrepressible feeling that you have escaped, again.
Parkhill overlooks the stretch of coast that runs between the villages of Haumoana and Te Awanga, and out to Cape Kidnappers. It is set amongst 75 elevated hectares of rolling farmland and a working vineyard managed by Sileni Estate Wines. A Gold Medal winner in the Rural Design category of the NZILA Landscape Awards, it has been thoughtfully designed to preserve the character of this magical landscape.
Most sites have sweeping views of the ocean, less than a kilometre away as the crow flies, and each is positioned for sun and privacy.
If you must go to town, Havelock North Village and Hastings are just 12 minutes away, Napier is 15, and the airport about 25. Otherwise, an enviable mix of pastimes and life's necessities is just around the corner.
There's world-famous Cape Kidnappers Golf Course, fly fishing on the Tuki Tuki, and whitebaiting in season. There are miles of hiking and biking, including access to more than 180 kilometres of cycle trails that wind through Hawke's Bay's most beautiful parts. For seafarers, there's a marine club, launching ramp, and an ocean bristling with creatures.
You don't have to venture far for market garden fresh greens (and every other colour), there's a very well local stocked store, and two of the region's most famous restaurant wineries, Elephant Hill and Clearview Estate, are dangerously close by.
