Where you’ll be

Ponatahi, Wellington, New Zealand

The cottage is located on the famous Martinborough Terrace and is a short stroll to Martinborough vineyards, the 18-hole golf course and less than a five-minute drive or cycle ride to the Village Square and cafes, restaurants and shops. Explore the local vineyards - there are at least eight within walking distance and others less than 10 minutes by car.

Within easy reach are the iconic fishing village of Ngawi and the Cape Palliser lighthouse and adjacent seal colony, an hour's drive away. Lake Ferry, 30 minutes away, offers its famous fish and chips with amazing sunsets over the western hills.

Other local activities include the cinema, library, beauty spa, swimming pool, horse riding, all very close by.

I live in Martinborough where I run a vineyard and a holiday accommodation. It sounds idyllic but there’s always lots to do. Especially when I’m commuting to Wellington to consult on user experience.
