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.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
This cottage is a gem!
The cottage is beautiful, modern, comfortable and has everything you could want and more. Alison and Allan are great people. They greet you and let you do your thing, but they’re always available for any questions or help. The fresh flowers and chocolates were an extra treat. This is exceptional value for the rate they charge.
Home Away from Home
Very pleasant and love to have a cosy home like this in my back yard.
Excellent accommodation for that week end away
The property was prefect for our needs. Very comfortable. Whilst not a large dwelling it was very well set out. Close to shops and restaurants. We will be back.
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.
