Architecturally designed and built in the late sixties, this is a very well appointed three bedroom hideaway offering peace and tranquillity. Whilst in excellent condition throughout, it is still largely original right down to light fittings and kitchen door handles and it is a very good example of late 1960’s New Zealand style.


The villa is furnished with all the comforts of home. There is a large lounge with floor to ceiling windows opening onto a patio, a very comfortable lounge suite, a log burner and two well stocked book cases for you to kick back and spend a few hours catching up on your favourite authors, or, if you prefer, there is a TV and stereo for your entertainment.


There is a separate dining room with an antique kauri table and a spacious kitchen where you can prepare your own meals, or we are happy to cook for you if you would prefer.



Each of the three bedrooms has a luxurious Queen size bed with top quality duvets, fine linens & electric blankets.  One of the rooms has french doors opening onto a private, sunny deck.



The bathroom is brand new and very swish and comes with its own rubber ducky...


Our guests regularly comment that the Villa has a lovely ambience and also how big and spacious the Villa is.  It is very relaxing whilst offering all the comforts of home.


Janiss and Ivan from Murrays Bay wrote "we enjoyed all the comforts of home in private, restful surroundings...and thoughtful extra touches were appreciated...the provision of glossy magazines, a sweets jar, fresh flowers, Twinings teas etc....".


Brian and Pam from Auckland commented "thank you both for your wonderful hospitality. Our five day stay at the villa over the New Year was a lovely relaxing experience. Having sampled a number of B&B establishments over the years, the villa really was a delight to stay in. Your attention to detail and providing the extra "home comforts" really meant a great deal to us. We shall certainly be back to enjoy your hospitality again and will be recommending the villa to anyone we know planning to stay in the beautiful Wairarapa."
