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.

Exceptional base to explore the area!
A beautiful detached cottage in owners backyard. Suite is perfect for a couple with a well-stocked kitchen, bathroom and comfortable bed. Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottage as well as the close vicinity to Masterton, Castlepoint, hiking at Mount Holdsworth, and Cape Highly recommend!
Excellent for multi-day exploration of the Wairarapa
It is very well equipped, had everthing we needed to self-cater for the 5 days we stayed there. It is nice and quiet and the outlook into the garden from the deck is lovely and provides a nice space to relax after a long day of sighseeing and walking. Carterton was also central to everything we wanted to explore, such as Palliser Bay, Martinborough and Castle Point.
Beautiful, clean, well appointed cottage. I had a relaxing stay. Alison was so friendly. I would highly recommend to all. Oh and the bed was sooo comely. Goodness if I could take it home I would.
Delightful property and owners. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished it was longer. Many Thanks!
Carterton is an excellent central location from which to explore the Wairarapa. Martinborough is 15-20 mins away, Greytown 10 mins, Masterton 15 mins
