Our boutique style, serviced, very clean, 'home away from home’ is privately nestled in our back garden (away from the street) with mature trees, covered deck & private lawn & garden. The cottage is a separate dwelling from the hosts house with its own access.
Guests enjoy; a well equipped full kitchen, unlimited wifi, dbl glazing/insulation, air con/heat pump, great shower, comfortable queen bed & quality bedding. Parking is on hosts front drive. Self check-in is available if hosts are absent.

The space
The living space (with aircon/heat pump) includes a modern kitchen with under bench fridge/freezer, a microwave and conventional oven, a ceramic cook top with range hood, pantry, dining table and chairs.

There is a 2-3 seater *sofa sleeper, a comfy chair and ottoman/coffee table, tv, wireless internet, Netflix (your own account).

The kitchen is very well equipped for those who wish to cook. Some milk is supplied. The pantry is stocked with teas, coffee options (incl a Vittoria espresso machine) milo, drinking chocolate, sugar, oil, salt.

There is an electric blanket on the queen bed in winter. The bed linen is mostly quality cotton, for all year comfort.

There is a lazy boy chair & sufficient space at the end of the Queen bed for a portable cot (we can supply cot on request) or alternatively a cot will fit in the adjacent wardrobe room.

The walk in wardrobe for bags is between the bedroom and the ensuite bathroom. Room to store some of your gear but no bikes in the cottage please - can offer secure bike storage in our garage.
The toilet is in the bathroom.
There is a pull out clothesline under the verandah. Hand washing can be done in the bathroom. Laundromat at the Mobil garage in Carterton or a new one just south of the supermarket. The use of our laundry can be negotiated by guests who stay 4+ nights.

*The basic, pull out sofa sleeper (in the living area) is a generous dbl bed size, best suited for 1 person. Please request bedding for this if there are only 2 guests staying & needing 2 beds.
NB-access to the bathroom/toilet from the sofa sleeper in the living space is only through the bedroom so not suitable for all groups.

Because the cottage is in our back garden we are generally not making it available to families with active young children, however a baby (not yet crawling), or (please negotiate) - a quiet, mature teen/young adult with a parent is okay.

Off street parking is on our front drive (dbl entry from street),for 2 guest cars and/or a motor home/camper van.

Accessibility for mobility impaired guests:
The access from the path to the deck is via a concrete path which is ramped up to a low deck. There are no steps - just the usual door-frame lip -easily wheel chair capable as far as the living area but not through the bedroom or bathroom doors.

Where you’ll be

Carterton, Wellington, New Zealand

Carterton is considered to be in the heart of the Wairarapa therefore guests are well positioned to access all of the attractions the region has to offer. For those guests heading to or from Wellington we are conveniently located, near the main state highway 2.
We are fortunate to live on a street with beautiful mature trees. Memorial Park, with seating and some gardens, is at the town end of the street.

Our street links the shopping centre with rural Carterton east, including Gladstone, and in the other direction Parkvale, and Martinborough via the Ponatahi route (a pleasant drive). We’re very close to the Carterton village shops and its Sunday market. 5 minutes walk to all of the cafes and food outlets in Carterton. A Mobil petrol station, 2 laundromats, tennis courts and local library, Carterton's Events Centre with Information Centre, Railway Station and Carrington Park are all within easy, flat, walking distance.

We are a couple of active retirees. We keep busy with our property, with bnb guests and family. We prefer accommodation with an element of peace and privacy which we endeavour to provide our own guests in our bnb cottage.

During your stay

Most guests appreciate privacy and for that reason we endeavour to keep a low profile but we are happy to help out with advice or other matters when required.
