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.

Locally there is a Day Spa for that relaxing massage or facial with indoor pool or visit the boutique movie theatre with comfy armchairs with a glass of wine or a meal, wander Martinborough village shops or visit the vineyards. Play golf at Martinborough Golf Club which is just around the corner or hire some bikes in the village or choose to walk the many walking tracks in the local area.

  •  Great place with perfect weather which allowed us to use the massive outdoor area. Would highly recommend for larger groups wanting a nice weekend break. 

  •  As a large group of adults and children we were looking for something large and spacious (with room for the kids to run around outside) and walking distance to the town center. This home delivered all this and much more. Beautifully presented and offering every mod con you can thing of. Roaring fire (inside) and huge decks outside.... We are now looking at heading back for amid winter break... : ) 

  •  Wonderful place to spend our summer holiday. Lovely big comfortable house with a great sheltered deck to sit outside. Plenty of space for the kids to explore, ride bikes and play cricket.
