This modern, near-new home has everything you need for a relaxed and peaceful stay. The house is fully equipped for self-catering and all linen and towels are included (and professionally laundered) with your rental.

The property borders on a winter creek and native reserve with stands of ancient totora, matai and titoki just waiting to be explored. Two mature titoki are features of the garden and attract numbers of native birds including kereru, tui, fantails, occasional kingfishers, bands of rosellas, grey warblers and shining cuckoo (depending on the time of year). All the tui and kereru featuring in these photos were photographed on this property.

Set back from the street, in a quiet cul-de-sac, this property feels like a haven from the outside world. Just a couple of minutes drive down the road is the main street of Featherston where you can sample the delights of fromagerie C'est Cheese, Sweet and local cafes and restaurants. The railway station is about 800 metres walk away, and it's just a short drive to either Martinborough or Greytown. Sited just a couple of minutes' drive from Tarureka Estate, this property is perfectly situated if you are visiting for a wedding, and is even closer to Mary Biggs' Country Cooking Classes at Te Puhi.

It's approximately 40 minutes drive to Ocean Beach for surfing or beach exploration, or further on to Cape Palliser and Ngawi for fishing, diving and more surfing. Bird-watching experiences abound at Lake Onoke and nearby at Lake Wairarapa.

The local swimming pool is only a couple of minutes walk away, or there is access to the Tauherinikau River swimming holes down Underhill Road.

In winter a heat pump keeps the whole house cozy. This home is completely insulated and double-glazed, ensuring peace and quiet as well as good temperature control. There is a Basic Sky package and wireless broadband is available on request (subject to a fair use policy). Please let us know if you wish to use this facility.

Please do not ignore this unless you have discussed with us and have confirmation in writing of an earlier check-in.

  • Lovely quiet location in Featherstone

    Lovely quiet location in Featherstone. Owners live next door so are on hand should there be a problem but are not intrusive at all and don't bother you. The house looks like a relatively new build and a really nice size for up to 4 adults and 2 children with a master ensuite and separate family bathroom which was great.

    Our group of 6 adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kereru Close while attending a wedding in the area. The house had everything we needed and was very peaceful, keeping us cosy while a storm of wind and rain whirled around outside. Will definitely come back again next time we are in Wairarapa.

    Lovely property with everything supplied, also a very attractive well maintained spacious garden area. The location so handy to the wedding venue we were attending and also to the local supermarket. Just delightful.
