  • I would rate the property higher once the issues have been addressed

    I would rate the property higher once the issues have been addressed. Very steep, unkept, dangerous steps down into the property, this came as a real shock. Tiles in the shower where coming off on the floor right where we were standing. Not tripping or falling in the hole was an experience, tiles came off while we were there having a shower. We came back with Ants in our luggage also, Joanne said she had sprayed, but unfortunately it needed doing again.

  • We very much enjoyed our stay here! It is a beautiful cottage...

    We very much enjoyed our stay here! It is a beautiful cottage at the back of a quiet property. It's in a very peaceful location close to Carterton and the Gladstone wineries. We'd love to come back!

  • Absolute pleasure to stay here

    Absolute pleasure to stay here... highly recommend, this bach is a real gem. Lots of privacy and a wonderful setting. Stunning fire in lounge and a massive en suite / bathroom with spa bath. Lovely deck overlooking creek and rolling farmland - perfect rural setting, the free range eggs waiting for us was the icing on the cake.

  • Great little place

    Great little place. No bookings on the evening prior to our arrival so Joanne told us we could arrive early. Gladstone vineyard is close by for a nice lunch option. Kitchen is set up with all necessary items and a barbecue outside. Bathroom is amazing. Nice bath and a double (!) shower, very handy in the morning. The continental breakfast was way more extensive then we expected, so that was a nice little surprise. Highly recommend this place

  • The perfect spot for exploring the surrounding area

    The perfect spot for exploring the surrounding area. Nearly every town is a mere 10-15 minutes away. The cabin is amazing and we would definitely recommend staying to anyone.
