Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Wonderful eco-sustainable French style cottage built of stone and native timber with picturesque views of the river valley and mountains. Near to Carterton, Greytown and Masterton.

Drink pure artesian spring water while listening to abundant birds and sitting on your veranda. Go for a bush walk in the National Park across the river, go biking, play golf - or visit the vineyards and restaurants for a vibrant time.

This is an adventure escape that is close to the vibrant Wairarapa 'good life'!

The space
Many people say the photo's do not do justice to the delights of the Cottage.
It is a lovely private and welcoming space that gets plenty of sun, and provides a full kitchen with stove, grill and oven with all necessities - even an Italian stove-top coffee percolator. Self check-in and private parking.

There is a very efficient fire to keep you warm on chilly nights. The big bathroom has a very large corner bath and also a private outside hot shower that allows you to listen to the birds and smell sweet bush aroma's while you bathe - a very popular feature.

The veranda has a BBQ and a dining table and chairs in addition to the inside dining area. The views are entrancing together with the surrounding native forest environment.

The Cottage is an eco-sustainable stone and native timber Provence building with exceptional views. It is located next to the clear and clean Mangatarere River and within metres of the Tararua National Forest Park which provides 100's of K's of tracks and overnight cabins.

The cottage has its own solar/hydro power supply so do NOT bring electrical appliances such as hairdryers etc. Computers, radios and low wattage accessories is OK.
