Fantastic property.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property. We were 2 families with 5 children between us and felt like we had plenty of space. The kids had a great time. It rained a lot but we had lots of fun playing games by the wonderful fire. I can see how amazing it would be in summer with heaps of outdoor space for kids to play and a large deck for the adults tor relax. Easy to access lots of Wairarapa attractions form this location too.

Spacious property especially good for a couple of families to share.

  • 4 of 5

Spacious property especially good for a couple of families to share. The weather was very wet, windy and cold and there didn't seem to be much firewood available. Loved the fresh basil in the outdoor 'corridor'. I think the freezer part of the fridge needs sorting. I'd happily return. This property has tremendous potential.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback, shame about the weather there was extra firewood in the trailer just past the clothes line. We'd love to have you back. Callan
