The Wine Box is a lovely character cottage set on a one hectare site on the edge of the Martinborough township. Set in amongst 200 olive trees there is plenty of outdoor space. The wood fired pizza oven, outdoor fireplace and gas BBQ provide an outstanding outdoor living environment. Inside there is a master bedroom with ensuite and french doors opening out to the olive grove, a second bedroom with a queen bed and the third bedroom has room for four singles - one set of bunks and a single with a roll out divan. provide 2 further beds. The main bathroom has an antique claw foot bath with shower. A kitchen (with espresso machine) looks after all cooking requirements if you chose to dine at the house. Please note that there is only a bar fridge as there is not room for a full size one. The lounge has a wood burner - THIS DOES NOT HAVE A FIRE GUARD SO SMALL CHILDREN NEED TO BE SUPERVISED DURING WINTER MONTHS.

  • A warm cozy home with comfy beds

    A warm cozy home with comfy beds. A well appointed kitchen supported our wish to stay indoors in front of fire,drinking wine at dinner time. Great location, close to town and vineyards for lunches out. It is a great base for winter stay, and summertime must be lovely here too, with room on the property for kids and adults to spread themselves out. We enjoyed using the pizza oven with interesting results (but used oven in kitchen for back up!) We would stay again. Thanks
