I was very impressed with this stay, the units are situated in the middle of the vineyard so the outlook is lovely, there's even a pool. The units are a really good size and have been really well thought out, it was great to have a bathroom for each bedroom, and the kitchen area was perfect and had all we... More

Fabulous, well appointed, tastefully decorated villas in a beautiful vineyard setting. Kids loved the pool, tennis court and spacious grassy areas. Other times they have enjoyed the kayaks and fishing. In the evening, it's so cosy having a gas fire and during the day there is a great indoor outdoor flow. It's unique and an absolute favourite place for us... More

Great place. Excellent service. Layout would be great for families or groups. A few very minor finishing touches that would be nice for travellers; accessible power points in bedrooms, rubbish bins in kitchens and bedside reading lamps (please)!

We stumbled upon this accommodation online when we didn't have a booking for the following night. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and had an amazing view of the vineyards and the river. Our sumptuous prawn and salad dinner was perfect on the outdoor deck!

We booked the accommodationfor three nights in January (we were in Auckland for a wedding). This is a very tricky one as I cannot quite make up my mind about what I think. Our first slight dissapointment when we arrived was the gravel roads. The roads to the cabins (?) are gravel and very narrow and I certainly would not... More

We stayed in unit 11 which is seen on the right of the small promo picture, and has views across the vines, down to the river and tennis court.
