It has been a very relaxing and peaceful time out from our hectic schedule. The unit had everything that we needed for our stay, a comfy bed, cooking facilities, and not to mention it being spacious... More

Apresto apartment has very recently been taken over by Melissa and Shayne so we did not know what sort of reception or service we would get on our arrival. We need not have worried one little bit. We were met on our arrival by Melissa who was our main contact during our stay. She gave us both a warm and... More

What a find! A perfect gem, quiet, beautiful setting, and everything you need right there on hand. The location is not too far from Blenheim town centre, and there are many walks available in the countryside or along the riverbanks. Thanks Annie and Tony, we will be back.

My wife and I have just enjoyed two weeks in Anne & Tony's wonderful apartment on their peaceful and park-like estate close to town. The apartment is well-appointed, apart from Blenheim's iffy broadband access which we were warned about, however. Our host and hostess were simply wonderful -- warm and welcoming yet unobtrusive. We particularly appreciated their helpful tips on... More

What an amazing place to stay! Its peacefull which means you get a great nights sleep in a very comfortable bedroom. A warm welcome, amazingly friendly but nice and private too. I felt so relaxed heading to work everyday after sitting on the balcony having my morning coffee. Beautiful decor and good kitchen to do own cooking. Loved it!!
