Whare hoa hoa  Retreat

 Beautiful house, close to square. 

circa60 - retro modern 60's style house.

 Such a quaint little place. Our kids loved playing the retro games and reading the old comics. Nice and close to the town square, and even walking distance to a few vineyards. Loved to decor, and that bar was the highlight! 

Villa Rosa - a charming turn of the century villa

 Love Villa, great location, added bonus of breakfast being supplied. 

Luxury living so close to Town Square

 The property is very conveniently close to Martinborough and wineries. The house is lovely. It is a great place for couples and groups. The decadence on the master bedroom for a couples getaway or groups can find so many different places to locate within the house, no one is tripping over each other. I would absolutely recommend a stay to anyone who was visiting the area.

 A delightful house and so close to the town centre, parks and vineyards. 

Todd's Cottage and Vineyard

 Loved the property. Beautiful house and setting (in the vines) and had everything we needed. We particularly appreciated the loaf of bread! Close to Poppies vineyard (which was lovely! Do go there for the platter and stunning wines!), and an easy drive from town or other vineyards. Plenty of space and a nice big shower in the main house. Would have loved to have stayed longer and spent more time relaxing at the house. Highly recommend.
