  • Was very impressed with this beautiful house, and they had thoughtvof everything...

    Was very impressed with this beautiful house, and they had thoughtvof everything we could possibly need, including spare lightbulbs, shampoos, washing powder. We were incredibly comfortable and the property itself and views were spectacular!!! Closer to town than we expected, yet we felt like we were a million miles away. We’ll certainly stay again. Highly recommend.

    A truly beautiful home with million dollar views over the stunning Wairarapa countryside, river and hills. Comfortable and well equipped. Convenient to Masterton but very peaceful and quiet.
