    Overall the property was excellent and good value for money for a group of friends. It really worked for us as we had 2 couples. However, the only let down was the property needed a good clean prior to our arrival. However the house was lovely as was the section which had plenty of space with olive groves.

    We all enjoyed our stay at this property, it is in a lovely picturesque location and a convenient distance to Martinborough itself, the house is welcoming upon arrival and provides everything we needed for an easy, homely and convenient stay, however, due to the rubbish left in the outside bins from previous guests we did encounter a cockroach problem, this prevented us from sitting outside during the evening and found some inside too, also the fridge did not seal, otherwise happy to stay again.

    We had a great stay at the Wine Box, it was perfect for our holiday with our young baby. Only feedback I have was on the state of the outside of the house - the covered seating area could have been cleaned , all the seats were covered in bird poo and the lawns weren't mowed until our last day. Otherwise everything else was really nice.

    Beautiful property in a fab location. Easy walk or cycle into the township and to wineries. We would definitely stay here again.
