Welcome to our Art Deco house . It is situated just off the main road in Carterton on a quiet street which is 300 metres from the centre of town. We are close to all the good things in the Wairarapa, including fabulous wineries, charming Greytown, and an hour by car away from Wellington. Restaurants and pubs are a five minute walk away. The Carterton Events Centre is just around the corner and it's an hour or so from the wild east coast beaches of Castlepoint and Cape Palliser.

The space
We are taking extra care to disinfect your space due to COVID-19.
We have a totally separate suite for guests at the back of our house with a huge sunny bedroom, bathroom, large hallway with a couch and kitchenette. The sofa bed is in a separate space to the main bedroom. Comfort is assured as we have a heat pump for warmth in winter and cool on those hot summer Wairarapa days.

The kitchenette has microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle. For breakfast we supply toast, jams and muesli. There is also a coffee plunger with fantastic coffee. There is no oven or stove top, but we do have a toaster oven that does everything!!

We can accommodate 2-3 people as we have a queen bed and a sofa bed.
Please be aware also that there is no sink in the kitchenette. There is a big laundry tub in the bathroom and dishwashing soap is supplied. Alternatively I can wash your dishes when you leave.
There is a laundry in your bathroom which you are welcome to use. Electric blanket on the bed in winter. There is no cleaning fee.

The bnb has it's own private entrance. There is also a lovely and private covered deck off your bedroom for that afternoon wine!

Guest access
You will be able to access all your suite and the backyard. We have a lovely swing chair set under a tree for shade.

Other things to note
Smoking outside only.
No stove in kitchenette but there is an amazing toaster oven.
Also no sink in kitchenette, big sink is round the corner in bathroom (the laundry tub).
Campervan & motorhome parking available onsite.
Pop me an email if you need an earlier or later check in. If you are checking in late we also have a self check in process. We can usually accommodate :-)
We have cats, but they are indoor cats and aren't allowed in the suite at all. You can see them playing in their catio however :-)
Every extra person after 2 people will be charged $10.
