The Straw House is ideal for two couples wanting to be close to the centre of town and also within walking distance of the vineyards. Each bedroom has its own en suite bathroom and the open plan living is between the two bedrooms. The house faces north to provide maximum sunshine and has huge bi-fold type doors opening onto a patio. It is perfect for outdoor living with a BBQ provided. There is a gas fire for winter which heats the house really quickly due the insulation of straw walls. There is SKY TV and a DVD player.

The whole house is stylishly furnished and has a full kitchen with oven and dishwasher.

  • A wonderful place to stay in Martinborough that won't disappoint

    A wonderful place to stay in Martinborough that won't disappoint. Walking distance to the shops and wineries. The house had character, was beautifully clean and had lovely touches, like fresh bread, eggs and juice. Highly recommend staying here.

  • Great house with a lot of charm

    Great house with a lot of charm. The ensuite in one bedroom had a lovely shower and the second bedroom had a wonderful deep tub. The house is an easy walk to the restaurants in town. The town is small enough that an evening stroll will take you through most of it and it is only an hours drive over a beautiful mountain into Wellington. Charming. We would recommend Strawhouse for a couple, two couples (which is what we are) or even a family with a child. Thanks Christina.
