Description

Experience a piece of history, this is basic, no frills accommodation in a historical farm house with a character and recently reconditioned original wooden floors. The name of the house is 'The Shearers Quarters' and it's one of the oldest houses in the area. It's a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors all around. The beach is only 10 minutes drive away and offers good surfing, fishing etc.

The house is on the bottom of 'Battery Hill', also known as Kakahimakatea Hill, wich is one of the archaeological sites of Wairarapa Moana and offers spectacular views of the whole Wairarapa Valley.

Enjoy the peace and quite and forget the city stress, make the most of the great outdoors and relax by the cozy fireplace in the evening. Have the place to yourselves and make it your home for a night or many.

  • Location was good for visiting Cape Palliser and the south shore

    Location was good for visiting Cape Palliser and the south shore. Bach was tidy, spacious, and provided basic amenities. Room space heaters and curtains would have been appreciated but were not essential, and there was plenty of wood provided for the wood-burning stove.

    Seen alot of negative feedback regarding the property but We have nothing negative to say. The house was clean & tidy. Personally it's worth every bit of the $90 charged. We enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an extra night. The house fire was cosy and warm, the bathtub a luxury bonus. Youre in a prime location close to the lake and sea in a rural area. Very peaceful just the way we like it. Not looking for flash luxury stay just somewhere comfy and close to beaches. Thanks heaps A++
