Todd's Cottage and Vineyard

 Todd's cottage perfect for our group. Very clean and tidy, has everything you need, in a very scenic and quiet/private location. Perfect. 

Jasmine Cottage, a Martinborough retreat

 Nice and roomy place 

Luxury living so close to Town Square

 Great for a big family group as everyone had their own room and lot of different spaces in the house. Kitchen is very well equipped and good location for walking to shops and vineyards. Negatives were bathroom layout is not very convenient (i.e. no bathroom on middle floor and need to go downstairs) and ironing board needs replacing as cover is so thin leaves marks on clothes (not great if you are attending a wedding!). Overall great property and would definitely recommend. 

Villa Rosa - a charming turn of the century villa

 Lovely old villa, perfect size for a group and very convenient location. Will no doubt be back some time in the future! 

Whare hoa hoa  Retreat

 Property was beautiful! It has plenty of space. Great for events such as a bridal shower. Would be perfect for family get-togethers. Nice and central, an easy walk to town. Would recommend this place to anyone. 

Luxurious Martinborough Lodge

 Great pool, Beautiful House. Just perfect,
