Coalman's Cottage - Martinborough Villa

 The property was an awesome quaint little cottage with everything we could need provided. The location was great, close to town but nice and quiet. Easy access to anywhere we wanted to go. 

Pukemuri Beach House

 Am now a regular visitor to Puke as I am fishing mad ,it does not get any better, the batch has everything you need even in the winter months a great place to be just to get away from it all just crank up the fire and chill out no traffic issues here. Also a big thanks to Sally and Rob for the opportunity to stay in their piece of paradise. Cheers Peter Bowles 

 Historic Cottage in the heart of Martinborough.

 The cottage was quaint but maintained to a high standard. There was absolutely everything you could need in the cottage. It was in a great location - handy to walk into the square etc. Very comfortable furniture and beds.

Coalman's Cottage - Martinborough Villa

 Loved the house, it has a great big covered deck to sit out on with good indoor outdoor flow. Beautiful birds making use of the fruit trees, even say a hedgehog during the day. Very close to shops. The house is beautiful lots of wood and the wooden floors superb and I love all the homey touches. If going to Martinborough again would book. Catches all day sun, and plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy the good weather.
