 A perfect spot for a girls' weekend away. Close to Martinborough and Greytown. Very clean. I would definitely recommend to others. 

Martinborough Homestead

 Beautiful property with everything supplied that you could possibly need. Very comfortable stay, loved the master bedroom / bathroom and outdoor bath! The entire group had a fun and memorable stay, many thanks. Cheers, Emma. 

Broadway, Martinborough

 This property exceeded our expectations. We were a group of ten adults and the house was huge. There was plenty of seating, entertainment areas, and bedrooms. It was well looked after, had lovely décor, and the kitchen was so well stocked in terms of cups, plates, cooking utensils, pots etc etc it was awesome. Lovely space, lovely home, and we would definitely be back. Was also in a very handy location to The Square as well as the wedding we were going to at Tirohana Estate.

Martinborough Homestead

 This was one of the best houses we've ever stayed in. It was immaculate inside and out, the thought and quality detail that went into the design and comfort was of the highest standard, every little detail had been catered for, down to the plethora of pool towels. The next time we visit we'll will definitely be staying again if we are lucky enough to book it..
