"We enjoyed a wonderful stay with Steve and Mary, 7 - 8 May. It was a great place for two couples and two babies attending a wedding at 'The Landing' next door. They made us so welcome in their beautiful French Provencal-style home and Mary served us a spectacular breakfast. Highly recommended."

"We had a lovely relaxing weekend in lovely surroundings and a luxury home to be in. The views from every window were stunning and our hosts Steve and Mary were very welcoming. Mary's breakfast was exquisite and muffins and crossants were the best. Came home feeling refreshed."

"We felt like family when we stayed with Mary and Steve, just what is needed after a long journey from Auckland to Masterton. We definitely need to go back for another stay and explore the Wairarapa. Mary's breakfast was outstanding and the bed was beautiful, as was the rest of the property. Definitely excellent value for money!"
