The timeless feel of this beautiful Edwardian villa (built in 1901) flows through into each of the guest suites where the ambience of an open fire prevails. Encased by 10 acres of lush farmland, cottage gardens, swimming pool, workout facility, on-site boutique vineyard with The Peppertree's own Chardonnay and olive grove. 2 superking/twin, 2 king, 1 queen bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms.
Aptly named for its aspect that allows you to enjoy the sun setting in the west, this pretty room has French doors leading to a private garden. Here, the songs of bellbirds, fantails and other New Zealand native birds greet you in the morning. Climbing roses, pretty hedges, shrubs and blossom trees surround this sanctuary where you may choose to take breakfast alfresco. The garden allows private access to your suite.
An attractive ensuite adjoins the Sunset room, providing a shower and special nonslip tiles under foot.
Nestled under the dormer roof, up a short flight of stairs, is a charmingly romantic suite of rooms ideal for a honeymoon couple seeking quietness, privacy and seclusion. The highlight of the room is the magnificent white king size bed, prettily draped in white muslin and bedecked with cushions and pillows. A balcony overlooks the courtyard and attractive garden with views over the trees to the majestic mountains in the distance.
The large ensuite bathroom is light and spacious with tiled walls, and incorporates a spa/bath, shower and a delightful little picture window depicting The Peppertree design, after which the villa was named.
