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.

  • The Strawhouse was an excellent choice for our weekend stay in Martinborough...

    The Strawhouse was an excellent choice for our weekend stay in Martinborough with friends. It's wonderfully located, very clean and well appointed plus a little bit different. We'd certainly stay there again and would highly recommend.

  • Christina's guest home is perfect

    Christina's guest home is perfect. All needs are catered for and we especially appreciated the washing machine as we were at the tail end of a 2 week holiday. The home works well for two couples with living area in the centre of the two bedrooms. The table outside was used to enjoy afternoon sun, the location is so central. Thank you Christina.
