All about Meg’s place

Escape on Esther is a well appointed, luxury villa. Catering for the more discerning clientele, this 1920 villa has been lovingly restored and beautifully appointed to provide the elegance of yesteryear, with the benefits of modern living.
The private and beautiful mature garden cocoons the villa in a blanket of colour and scent, giving guests the feeling of belonging and serenity.
Martinborough town square with it's shops, cafes and bars is located an easy ten minutes walk away.

The space
Opening the front door reveals a striking entrance hall, furnished with an antique chandelier.

From this impressive entrance is the lounge, main bedroom and the native timber floored hallways which connects to the two other bedrooms, the main bathroom and the kitchen/dining/living area.

The house is furnished to a very high quality with antiques and chandeliers that suit the high stud ceilings of the original house.

The lounge has a library and board games to borrow, 54” TV, plush sofas and Sonos music.

The main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and built-in wardrobe, antique dresser, chaise longue, queen bed and 'Smart' 42” TV.

Bedroom 2 has a king bed and built-in wardrobe.

Bedroom 3 can be set up as a superking bed or two king single beds.

The main bathroom has a bath, shower, basin and toilet.

The kitchen/dining/living boasts a modern and fully equipped kitchen, an area with table and 6 chairs for dining, and an area with two sofas, wood burner and 'Smart' 42” TV. Off this area is a utility room leading to the back of the house where there is a large, covered deck area and outside dining area on the lawn.

Help yourself to herbs from the herb garden and make the most of the new modern kitchen that has just been fitted with a gas/electric range, French style fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and all the necessary accoutrements to make you feel at home.

There is a wonderful Sonos music system for your use in all rooms other than bedrooms and bathroom.

There is easy off-road parking for 3 cars.

The best way to explore Martinborough is by bicycle. And to enhance you experience at Elegance on Esther we have a selection of new (Nov 2020) adult bikes and helmets available. There is a small fee of $40 for each bike hire, for the duration of your stay. Much cheaper than hire shops in town and far more convenient.

This property is being updated with new interior furnishings, new TVs etc, so pictures will change (for the better).
