Such an easy and enjoyable stay. Everything was easy! We felt settled and relaxed very quickly and was able to enjoy to lovely surroundings. Accessing the local amenities was also incredibly easy adding to overall enjoyment of our stay. Helpful staff and high quality amenities delivered us a fabulous break.

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed a 2 bedroom villa-it had everything we could have wanted. Managers were delightful and genuine-nothing too much trouble. When one of our bikes had a mechanical failure Josh drove out to meet us, took the bike, repaired it and had it ready for us after our lunch at Giesen's across the road. Definitely...

Such a great location within easy reach by bicycle or by car of most of the vineyards in the Marlborough wine region. Great kitchen,lounge and separate bedroom. Lots of space and a great patio with a gas BBQ for sunny weather which we had in abundance when we were there. Spotless and clean. Bicycles available for hire for 30 NZ...

We stayed here recently with friends in one of the 3 bedroom lodges. The place was nicely appointed, clean, and contained everything you need. Nearly every room had a wonderful view over the neighbours vineyard to the mountains beyond. The place was also serviced daily and all the staff we met were very friendly and welcoming. We hired the retreats...

After a week in a camper van, my girlfriend and I decided to splurge on a few nights near Blenheim. We couldn't have picked a more beautiful spot. Nadine was wonderful with giving us memorable recommendations for where to eat and drink. We had just been to Napa California earlier in the year and out experience here was just as...

A great place to stay, - roomy, comfortable, well equipped, and in a great location. Easy walk to some of the local wineries, and a short drive to local shopping and a great range of additional vineyards. Road access from both South and North is hassle free.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night on our way south. It has everything you could want for a comfortable stay and is only one hour away from the Interislander Ferry, so an ideal location for travellers. Not cheap, but good value.

The villas at Vintners are excellent. Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath with a washer/dryer in the middle of a dozen vineyards. We really enjoyed the pool on premises and then enjoying a drink on the patio each villa has out back.
