This pretty room with views of the garden, ensuite bathroom, private entrance and a veranda for relaxing is your ideal escape to the country. We are a 15 minute drive from the wonderful wine village of Martinborough & Greytown with its victorian main street and the foodie heaven of Featherston; with a 30 minute drive to the dramatic South Wairarapa coast. 10 minutes drive to Lacewood Wedding Venue.

The space
Our rural modern rustic cottage is set in an established garden, at the end of a tree lined drive, surrounded by paddocks. We are often visited by many native birds, that reside or nest in the surrounding trees including Kotuku/white herons, Ru ru/more pork, Fantails/tiwaiwai, Kingfisher, Quail, Rosallas and Tui, which makes for magical bird song. We are also in the designated 'dark sky zone' which means we are a perfect spot for star gazing!

Your private guest suite with views of the garden, has a comfortable queen size bed with dual control electric blankets and quality linen. We provide a self-catering continental breakfast, with a fully stocked breakfast station including cereal/muesli, milk, bread, butter, coffee, a variety of teas and a kettle, toaster, coffee plunger, tea pot, crockery, cutlery and fridge. You can take your breakfast at the table in your room or on the veranda. We are happy to cater for gluten and/or diary free dietary requirements on request, please give us 48 hours notice prior to check in.

Your private entrance, with self-check in allows you to be as independent as you please, however if you need us we are always close by and more than happy to be of assistance.
Please note: the guest suite is attached to our house (Otahuna Cottage), however you have your own private entrance.

We are close to so many of the South Wairarapa's wonderful attractions, but we also provide a true escape to the country. We are 10 minutes drive from Lacewood Wedding Venue.

Some of the local highlights include:

Boggy Pond Moana Wetlands: we are only a 7 minute drive from this amazing spot, stunning scenery with the mountains in the distance, this is a wonderful place to walk and enjoy the abundance of bird life.

Cape Palliser: We are half an hour drive to Palliser Bay, this dramatic coast line is such an invigorating experience with epic views, amazing walks and mountain biking trails, the breath taking (literally) walk to the light house and even a large seal colony. This is one of our favourite day trips.

Lake Ferry: If it's a lovely evening this is the perfect place for sundowners and fish & chips on the deck of the Lake Ferry Hotel.

Martinborough: Why not hire a bike and cycle the award winning vineyards, relax with a glass of wine and a platter! Enjoy the boutique shopping experience and abundance of cafes in the village, there is even a boutique brewery.

Greytown: New Zealand's oldest inland town, with its pretty tree lined victorian main street, filled with shops and great places to eat. Why not wander the wide residential streets and enjoy the historic architecture.

Featherston: home of Book Town with a three day literary festival each May. Worth a visit at anytime of the year, stroll along the main street, enjoy the wonderful book stores and incredible food on offer.

Tararua Ranges: this mountain range runs the length of the Wairarapa and offers wonderful walking opportunities from easy strolls to challenging hikes.
