We stayed in the three bedroom villa with gorgeous views of the vineyards and the hills from the back porch. The villa had everything we needed and the unbeatable location in the middle of the Marlborough region made for a great stay. The super friendly reception a huge bonus. Recommended.

A very well equipped house with all home facilities. Roomy to scccommodate families. Lovely managers who maintain the properties well. Great location. We ordered the platters which were filling and the wine was excellent to celebrate a birthday.

This is not a cheap stay but you certainly get what you pay for here. This is not a hotel per se, at least in my opinion since you are renting what is effectively a house and one that is very well appointed and tremendous for our family of four. Our unit had two bedrooms served by a large bathroom...

We stayed here for 3 nights. There were 5 of us, including a toddler. The hosts were very helpful with supplying a cot, high chair and puzzles. All of this was greatly appreciated. There was plenty of room in our unit and it had a very pleasant outlook. It is less than 15 minutes drive into Blenheim.

We stayed here whilst visiting the wineries. It's walking distance to a few wineries and is a really great place. Our room seemed really modern, well kept, spacious and had everything we could want. The grounds were great for kids with a playground, heated pool and tennis court. If we find ourselves back in Blenheim, we will be trying to...

The best place to stay surrounded by vineyards, gorgeous town houses with lovely outdoor space. Swimming pool, tennis court and pétanque to relax and fill in time till the next wine tour! Managers extremely helpful and made everything easy and stress free. Would recommend highly! Very comfortable - 5 stars!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Vinter's Retreat! The property is lovely - set in the midst of a vineyard! The facilities are clean, well-taken care of and comfortable. The staff is on top of things and very friendly. It was one of our best stays in New Zealand!

As a family of four adults we were warmly welcomed by the new Managers and personally shown to our accommodation. It was clean and tidy and well appointed with secure garaging facilities and laundry at far end. Purely personal but we found the decor colours to be rather dark and drab in the lounge/dining area. Spacious outdoor grassed and garden...
