Description

Martinborough House Rental Photos and Description

Homestay, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

Whare Kohatu (the stone house) is available as a homestay (view the calendar below) where the owners will host your stay. A choice of continental or cooked breakfast is included in the price. You are very welcome to join us for evening meals too (with a small additional charge to cover the costs).

The house is built largely from split schist rock mined from the hills around the Lindis Pass in the South Island. It is a modern and spacious family home, fully equipped with all the necessities for a comfortable stay - short or longer term.

It is designed for easy indoor/outdoor living. The lounge and dining areas can be opened up to extensive decks (some fully covered and others partially covered by vines) giving a choice of options for outside dining in most weather. A large open gas fire provides a cosy focal point when relaxing in the lounge. The house is characterised with high chapel ceilings, hardwood timber floors, and a large open living/dining layout. Should you wish to dine out, there is a wide range of excellent dining establishments within an easy distance.

The gardens are well developed with extensive plantings of both native, English and Japanese trees. Roses, azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons combine to provide a stunning display of colour during the spring and summer. The bright reds and golds of the vines and maples dominate the colours of the landscape in Autumn and early winter. There is a pergola with a vine covered roof in the middle of the garden area which is ideally suited for kicking back and enjoying the tranquility and splendor of the garden.

Special conditions:

Pets welcome with prior approval. (Hosts have a small dog).

The house is a smoke-free zone.

Unless agreed by prior negotiation, the earliest arrival time is 2pm and the latest departure time is 11am.

Generally we don't accept bookings of one night duration. Where we do, an additional cleaning fee may be applied.

Unfortunately we do not accept bookings with children as the property is not suited for that purpose.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);
