Budget Getaways Review
Sitting in a quiet rural setting just outside Napier, with an outlook from the voorstoep of pastures dotted with neighbouring farm animals, Riverbend ticks all the right weekend boxes.
The cottage is newly built, spacious and airy thanks to large sliding doors.
Sporting a pair of ensuite bedrooms (a double and twin), it is ideal for either a couple with two kids or two couples sharing. The one ensuite comes with a bath, the other with a shower.
The living area (which has 'Easyview' DSTV) is comfortable and cozy and includes a dining table and a scattering of couches. This opens out via the double sliding doors onto a covered patio.
The kitchen is fully equipped and is open-plan to the living space.
Out back, and protected from the Cape Doctor is another covered patio - nice spot to while away some hours and fire up the braai come early evening.
Apart from hanging out in Napier, which is an easy stroll up the way, the coast is a mere 30 minutes by car - with a choice of Arniston, Struisbaai and Agulhas.
Good news for pet owners, for a reasonable stayover fee Fido is welcome to join you for the weekend.
A chilled location, comfy accommodation, and a rate that keeps the budget-conscious smiling, Riverbend Cottage looks to be a good bet for your next trip to Napier.
"We spent the weekend in this wonderful 2 bedrooms cottage in Napier, one with a double bed, the other with 2 single beds.

Delightful owners who ensured we had all we needed. Thank you."
