Location great-walking distance to shops and cafes. Delicious lemon cake baked for us by Sandra (owner). Nice touch too with extras, like eggs, bread, muesli, No wifi, but that is in the process of getting sorted. Can recommend.
Wonderful break from the city at this property. We were arriving late in the evening and was so happy to arrive to warm house after Sandra had lit the fire for us. Absolutely loved this house, will definitely be back.
Greytown Borders Retreat "Luxury is in each detail"
For 20 years now my family has had retreats around New Zealand. So we have seen our fair share of baches, bungalows, converted barns and even wool sheds. The hosts of Borders Retreat are not just wanting to make money off clientele, but sincerely want you to feel at home, and have an relaxing experience away. If you read through the quest book you will see entry after entry of people commenting on the attention to detail, luxurious linen, all possible provisions and notwithstanding Sandra's welcome basket of local produce with seasonal touches and freshly baked lemon loaf absolutely beyond!
However, I think the point of difference is not just that this cottage has everything you could want. It's rustic French styling, warm wood, and appointed rooms. It's central proximity to Greytown central, and to the rest of the Wairarapa region. It's about the genuine care and welcoming nature of the hosts who have opened up this cottage for your break away.
I'm home now, and still wish I was sleeping up in the loft, with the plush waffle duvet and looking at the star constellations nestled in the ridge beams above (you'll find these at night).Needless to say - our family would return in a heartbeat.
A lovely cottage for the weekend
Such an amazing little place to stay, and so welcoming! From the little chalkboard welcoming us to the property, to the lemon cake, to the property owner checking beforehand that everything was ok - this was a wonderful weekend that really made the trip to Greytown amazing. The place was absolutely clean and tidy, having a lot of what we would need and even ensuring that there was enough wood for the wood burner. We really enjoyed the stay and recommend this place!
Loved staying in this beautiful cottage.
We had a relaxed time at Sandra’s Borders retreat. So sunny and cosy and clean.
