Whare hoa hoa Retreat has all the amentities - five bathrooms, central heating with large entertaining areas suitable for two families or a large group of people with additional beds available with a limit of 12 people staying.

There is My Sky in the media room and in three other rooms with a big country kitchen for self catering or private catering can be arranged and then there is a lovely french dining room which seats sixteen or more with a lovely open fire. The house has central heating for the winter or you might prefer to go outside and sit on the sheltered verandah/deck area which is great for entertaining including an outdoor stereo. This is a great venue for parties and entertaining. See feedback. Owners live separately but next door on the 1.5 acres but house remains totally private.

 Great family home. Ideal for a large gathering 

 Amazing property and great location not far from the Martinborough town centre. 3 big bedrooms with ensuites were great for 3 couples and the 4th bedroom was perfect for the kids. Loved the massive deck although it was a little cold for us to get full enjoyment from it. Fully stocked kitchen and beautiful dining room with fireplace made sampling the local produce and a glass of wine a treat! 

 Thank you for a great stay 

 Great weekend - this house is amazing! Wood-fires, crisp white linen, Sky Sport (yes!) and too many other features to mention make this the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy Martinborough. 

 The house was really spacious - the kitchen was great for communal cooking and the garden was heaven for two adventurous little boys. The beds were really comfortable too with good linen. We had a couple of friends visit us overnight and it was great for them to have their own bathroom to use.
