AlisonS purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why AlisonS chose Carterton
The biggest draw card for us to purchase this property was the large section and established garden and the solid (concrete) construction and charm of the 1920's house. The section size enabled us to build the cottage at the back without impacting on the appearance of the property from the road.
What makes this Cottage unique
As resident hosts, we are on hand to help guests, if they need it, with local information and advice. We've built the cottage to a standard that we would appreciate if we were staying in it with many modern conveniences including air con/heat pump and double glazing for summer and winter comfort. Lots of light - both natural and artificial. A garden setting with a private covered deck facing north for summer evening enjoyment. A reasonable sized bathroom with a great shower and gas water heating. We added a walk in wardrobe so guests bags and personal items are not in the way in the bedroom. There are bedding options for both the couch and the Queen sized bed so you can control the weight of your bedding. Plenty of pillows and spare blankets.

Gorgeous little cottage - lovely getaway stay.
Alison’s cottage was gorgeous to stay in... beautifully decorated and lovely and clean. Comfy bed and sofa bed, nice heat pump and great kitchen and bathroom facilities.
Such a pleasant stay... easy communication regarding keys and arrival etc. No hassle at all.
Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a nice getaway in the Wairarapa.
Cheerful and comfortable
Easy walking distance to town. Friendly and helpful owners and everything you could wish for in accommodation
Slice of heaven
So clean! Charming hosts, and we really appreciated all the thoughtful touches. Would love to stay again sometime; highly recommended.
Absolutely beautiful little cottage with plenty of little extras as well. Highly recommended
Shame about the weather. But cant fault the accommodation or host. Top notch.
Thank you Alison.
Very comfortable cottage in the heart of town.
We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage is set in gardens and very quiet and tranquil. It is new, very well kitted out and very clean.
Alison is a charming host and pays attention to all the small details that make one's stay memorable.
Lovely, relaxing place to stay
The small cottage is very well laid out inside and beautifully furnished. There is a lovely veranda with seating for the summer days looking onto a well kept garden. The owner kindly provides some basic provisions for breakfast and has put a lot of thought into providing extras that might be needed. Access to the cottage is separate from the owners. Although the cottage is on the edge of town, it is adjacent to other houses so it is reasonable to expect some noise at times.
Carterton is an excellent central location from which to explore the Wairarapa. Martinborough is 15-20 mins away, Greytown 10 mins, Masterton 15 mins
