Bach or holiday home | Martinborough | #13478
Whare Kohatu (the stone house) is built largely from split schist rock mined from the hills around the Lindis Pass in the South Island. It is a modern and spacious family home, fully equipped with all the necessities for a comfortable stay - short or longer term.
It is designed for easy indoor/outdoor living. The lounge and dining areas can be opened up to extensive decks (some fully covered and others partially covered by vines) giving a choice of options for outside dining in most weather. A large open gas fire provides a cosy focal point when relaxing in the lounge. There is also an effective air-conditioning system to deal easily with any extremes of hot and cold weather.
The house is characterised with high chapel ceilings, hardwood timber floors, and a large open living/dining layout. The spacious and modern kitchen has all the facilities you are likely to need for catering, or there is a wide range of excellent dining establishments within an easy distance.
The gardens are well developed with extensive plantings of both native, english and japanese trees. Roses, azaleas, camellias and rhododendrums combine to provide a stunning display of colour during the spring and summer. The bright reds and golds of the vines and maples dominate the colours of the landscape in Autumn and early winter. There is a pergola with a vine covered roof in the middle of the garden area which is ideally suited for kicking back and enjoying the tranquility and splendour of the garden.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this property, the pictures where beautiful but when we arrived it blew us away, very clean, everything you could possibly need in the cupboards, the grounds were stunning and very well kept, location was fantastic also, not to far from the square and its always nice to walk in Martinborough, we've stayed in quite a few places in Martinborough and this is definitely one of the top 3. I would highly recommend this Whare Kohatu.
This was a beautiful home in a gorgeous peaceful setting. Comfortable beds and fantastic living areas and full kitchen with everything you could need. Outdoor spaces were incredible - beautiful big gardens / lawn and multiple decks to enjoy. The breakfast supplies were a nice touch. Overall everything was presented perfectly and was the home was really well organised as a holiday rental. Would love to return.
Finding it wasn't as clear as you would hope. Would be worth the owners adding a little more info for first time visitors. Only complaint I have is that the advert clearly say's it has internet but it doesn't....that was annoying for me as I am self employed and needed to use the internet often over our 4 day stay. That aside, property, presentation and attitude of owners make this amazing value for money so overall this property is a little gold mine.....we will definitely book again.
