The SpaceBiddy is located 8km north of Masterton on our family farm. She is 7.5 metres long (which happens to be the greatest length that a kangaroo can jump) so ample room to leap about. From your armchair you have a beautiful view over the farm and from your bed you look out at the mountains. Standing on the front steps you can see the Loopline Vineyard and just beyond the old red barn is Paper Road Vineyard which offers casual drinks, dining and pizza nights. Loopline Olives welcome visitors for oil tastings and only 15 minutes up the road is the Pukaha Mt Bruce National Wildlife Centre where you can get to see the white kiwi. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience glamping. Bring along your favourite coffee for using in the plunger and keep your beverages cool in the icebox. The bathroom has a hot gas shower and the caravan is kept cosy with a gorgeous wee coal stove. We provide your linen and towels.

    Experience the romance of life a hundred years ago in our little pioneer cottage. Just 8km from Masterton, the cottage sits overlooking our private lagoon and the workings of our sheep and beef farm. In summer the lagoon dries up but there are still the 360 degree views of the mountains, hills and Wairarapa plains. Built entirely of recycled materials the cottage is now home to many precious heirlooms gifted by family and friends, beginning with its beautiful stain glass front door. No television or microwave but you have the convenience of a gas hob and latterns. The cottage is very cosy and warmed in winter by a little pot belly. The flush loo and the bath under the stars are both one step off the deck. The icebox will cool your wine for a drink on the verandah and if you don't wish to cook dinner on your night away then it's a short drive into town where there is a rich array of restaurants. Your tariff includes a breakfast basket and fine linen. Upon deposit I will email you an information sheet with driving directions. Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only. Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

      The Space A rustic, comfortable former shearing quarters in the middle of farm land, surrounded by forest and open green pastures. The property is nestled among mature trees and sits on an acre of land, with a stream running along one side of the property. are plenty of bedrooms, with queen, single and cot beds available, a main living area, separate dining, and plenty of outdoor space ? three verandahs, a large back section, and outdoor dining for twenty people. Swim in the stream during the hot Wairarapa days, and cosy up by the open fire in the evenings. This 8-bedroom property is the perfect location for groups of family and friends. There Sleeping: Bedroom 1: two single beds, one cot Bedroom 2: two single beds Bedroom 3: one queen bed Bedroom 4: one queen bed, one bassinet Bedroom 5: two single beds Bedroom 6: one queen bed Bedroom 7: one queen bed, one cot Bedroom 8: one queen bed Guest Access Guests have access to all shared spaces, the whole property, the river alongside the boundary of the property, and all bedrooms they have booked. The property is surrounded by working farms, so while guests can of course stroll along the road, they cannot enter any surrounding buildings (e.g. wool sheds) or paddocks. Interaction with Guests This is our holiday house, so when you're there, we're at home in Wellington. The Neighbourhood The best thing about the Quarters is that it's in the middle of nowhere ? here you can truly escape the real world. There are a handful of neighbours (mainly farmers) and generally all you can hear is the babbling creek, the native birds, and an occasional flock of sheep being moved along the main road. There's no mobile coverage, and no internet. Getting around You'll need a car to get from Masterton, the nearest town, which is a 45 minute drive away. Wellington is just over two hours away by car. NB the last fifteen minutes of the drive out are on shingle road. Special conditions: The most important thing is that our water supply (rainwater) is shared with the neighbouring farm and this is a fairly dry part of the country, so please use water sparingly. New Zealand countryside rules apply: mainly, if it's yellow, let it mellow. Given the nearby working farms, it's advisable to not bring dogs (or any other pets) unless they're accustomed to such things. And if you do bring animals, please not indoors. No smoking indoors (and please remove any butts from outdoors). Extras: Cleaning (Optional, NZ$100.00 per stay); Linen (included);

        Bucket List: * Take Road Trips * Count the stars Biddy is totally off grid with solar lighting and a gas cooker so come with your phones and cameras fully charged. Even better, forget your phone for a while and really escape. There is no television, which lends nicely to playing cards or a board game, reading from the library, listening to the antique battery radio and then snuggling up outside with the duvet under a starry sky on the old wrought iron bed. Biddy is located 8km north of Masterton on our family farm. She is 7.5 metres long (which happens to be the greatest length that a kangaroo can jump) so ample room to leap about. From your armchair you have a beautiful view over the farm and from your bed you look out at the mountains. Standing on the front steps you can see the Loopline Vineyard and just beyond the old red barn is Paper Road Vineyard which offers casual drinks, dining and pizza nights.
