Lakehouse Paradise: We've got it all...

 3 really high quality bedrooms that were set up to a really high standard. Cosy fire, tremendous view. Immaculate bathroom. Decor was classy but also gave you a good settled homely feel too. Top class. 

Altitude 1 - Luxury in the heart of Martinborough.

 It was a great stay. Right in the middle of the village so easy to get to all shops and cafes. Fantastic accommodation with lovely furnishings and very tastefully decorated. No problems at all with noise at night. Everything worked like clockwork including the bike ride. Will definitely be staying again. Thank you..... 

Ohiwas' Best Bach,Clean,Cosy & Private.

 We had a fantastic weekend because the bach was so perfect, quiet, private, clean and really comfortable. We loved watching the birds and fish jumping sitting on the verandah relaxing. We came away re energised and felt the setting, the bach and the friendliness of the owners made our stay so wonderful. I have been recommending this bach to everyone. We became orthonologists, spotting 23 different bird species and bought the bird spotting book for each of our children. Hope to return. 

Beautiful Bliss Cottage

 This perfect cottage is warm, beautifully decorated, well equipped and located within a two minute walk to the square and restaurants and shops. It is perfect for a weekend break and totally suitable for 2 couples to stay. We will definitely return. As the name suggests it is "bliss"
