Check In
Carol and Quenten are delightful hosts - very friendly, kind and genuine. They made us comfortable from the very start and made our stay a memorable one. We absolutely loved their home, it's very well appointed and the collectibles, furnishing, garden etc is brilliant. They are seasoned hosts who have thoughtfully arranged everything for their guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations over breakfast and dinner (which Carol prepared for us and was lovely) and were looked after just like family. They even gave us some fruit and venison from their farm! Will go back if we get over that way again.

I would say this is one of the most comfortable, pleasant & well-appointed BnBs or homes I've stayed in, w/ convenient nearby walks in a reserve full of morning song birds. The optional dinner w/ Carol & Joe was an excellent bonus; the most gracious hosts. And convenient access to nearby Highway 2.

Absolutely Fabulous. Our needs were anticipated at every step of the way. We were able to cross the road and play golf at the Lansdowne golf course. When we arrived we immediately felt at home- no lull in the conversations. The beds were very comfortable and a very quiet location. Both breakfasts were tasty. We will definitely go there again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We enjoyed this stay. Carol and Quenten's home has terrific views. They were very welcoming and even invited us to join them going to a play in the evening which we really appreciated. The food was delicious - venison courtesy of Quentin's hunting. Thanks for the extra effort needed to provide gluten free food.

A lovely home, and gracious hosts! Very convenient location. Guest rooms are in a private hall. Carol provided wonderful meals, for a moderate cost.

Carol & Joe are very welcoming hosts. Their home is very tranquil, comfortable & clean and the Airbnb bedroom was luxurious. The walkway nearby is a treat & I would have liked to explore it further. Carol & Joe have great knowledge of the local area & are very hospitable. I very much appreciated my stay here while on a work visit to Masterton.

We enjoy people and sharing our home and the Wairarapa . Quenten(Joe) as he is known to most loves the outdoors and is willing to provide hunting guidance or walking experiences if required. We have travelled to Alaska and Canada as well as Australia and hope to do more as time allows.
Carol loves to cook for visitors and friends and has an appreciation for gardens and the all things nice in life. Shopping is a real passion so she is always willing to provide trips.
