The local attractions of the Wairarapa cater for all tastes and interests, such as the vineyards and restaurants of Martinborough (about 25 mins drive), the seal colonies and rugged coast of the South Wairarapa (about 1 hours drive away), and the cafes and boutique shops at Greytown (15 mins drive).

  • Perfect for a break away

    Perfect for a break away. Everything was taken care of. Eggs, bacon and milk in the fridge a nice touch.
