Our modern, meticulously clean, 'home away from home’ is privately nestled in our back garden (away from the street) with mature trees, covered deck, private lawn & garden. The cottage is a separate dwelling from the hosts house with its own access. Guests enjoy; a well equipped full kitchen, dbl glazing/insulation, air con/heat pump, great shower, comfortable queen bed & quality bedding. Parking is on hosts front drive.
“Alison and Al are the perfect hosts. The cottage is cute and tidy. It has everything you could need and more. Alison has thought of everything, the kitchen is well equipped, the cottage has plenty of room that you don't ever feel like there isn't enough space. The place is warm, we never had an issue with being too hot or cold. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Alison has a great little guide inside the cottage for the area as well so you can explore and get to know the place. It is an excellent location as it is quiet and easy to get around the Wairarapa. We would stay again.”
Kererū is in a semi rural position, enjoy the quiet surround while relaxing on the deck or in the private outside bath. There is a bar fridge/freezer, toaster and kettle. Breakfast selection provided eg: muesli, bread, butter, spreads, milk, teas and fresh plunger coffee. This may work for travellers who don't plan on spending vacation time cooking. Greytown is five minutes down the road providing boutique shopping and a fabulous variety of dining options.
“Had an absolutely lovely stay, there was a fire going on arrival so we could enjoy a drink outside under the stars, following this I made the most of the outdoor bath which has been set up beautifully, complete with candles, Epsom salts and fairy lights. The space its self is compact but has everything you need, including an amazingly comfortable bed! Considering the outside temps, the room itself is so warm and cosy. To top it off, there was fresh coffee and breakfast provisions in the morning :) thanks for a fantastic stay!”
Welcome to 8 Hartley Avenue in the southern end of Carterton in the beautiful Wairarapa. My home is just over 2 years old and makes an ideal base for a weekend break. Although you will be sharing access to my home I can arrange for my German Shepherd (Echo) to leave you in peace with a gate in the corridor. Your room, bathroom and lounge are essentially in a separate wing of the house and you can be self contained or join us on the deck to watch the sunsets over the Tararua Ranges.
“Paul was an amazing host who was very forthcoming and easy to talk to. He made us feel home immediately. Best of all, and to our surprise, we had a completely private section to ourselves in his house, including our own bathroom and a lounge with a TV and a little fridge. Paul even provided us with breakfast, which was kind of new to us as we have never before stayed with somebody who took the "Bed and Breakfast" so literally. His dog Echo is a super friendly and calm German shepherd and doesn't seem to mind visitors / strangers at all. However, for people who are not comfortable around dogs, Paul had a "toddler-barrier" installed between the corridor and his guest rooms. All in all, we had a really great stay and can only recommend staying at Paul's.”
