We had a group of 14 people that we divided into Poplar 3 and Poplar 7. Both houses were spectacular and we loved the idea of sharing these lovely houses. We could cook and sit by the fire place and enjoy each others company. Only problem was we wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful and will do this again!

Loved it!!! Highly recommend.... wish we had booked a longer stay. Really enjoyed the view. We stayed for our wedding and it was perfect for a couple. Wifi was pretty good. Some cute quails living outside that we fell in love with!

We spent 5 nights at Poplars 2 and loved it. We have stayed at many "self catering" cottages and houses throughout the world and this topped them all. The previous reviews are right on as are the photos. The property is rather remote from civilization which is its main charm so be sure to stock up on food items at...

Wish we stayed longer!!!!! Absolutely amazing place! Everything at the black barn is about customer experience. Service was great, friendly and attention to details was exceptional. The place is really magical as soon as you walk inside. We stayed at the rush cottage, was just great! We didn't want to leave! Defiantly will be back! The best estate we have...

We loved staying at the Riverside Lodge (3). It is not often that the professional photos do not do a place justice. The lodge was better than the pictures. We could easily have accomodated another family. The children loved it. It has eveything you need. Just stunning.

We spent 4 nights in the Black Barn and will book to return in 3 months despite the journey to get there. The setting was idyllic facing the vineyards, with birdsong and lambs next door. Lovely relaxed American arts and craft decor, with old silky timber floors. Extraordinary housekeeping and attention to detail, that really help one to relax instantly,...

We live permanently on a rural property in Wairarapa, nevertheless, Black Dog Cottage was still a perfect rural retreat for us as a couple over Christmas. The cottage is amazingly well appointed. You could not ask for more equipment in the kitchen; they have thought of everything. In the bar, there is every kind of glass for every varietal of...

This home is so beautiful I'd recommend booking in for extra days to see the sights that Hawkes Bay has to offer as there is a good chance you will want some days lounging around the pool, evenings in front of the out door fire with a glass of Syrah, or just chilling in one of the many window seats,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Black Barn Vineyards in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand offers fourteen unique properties for nightly rental. Each is fully self contained and exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. Each is selected for its prime location, unique character and original style. They are all luxuriously appointed to reflect their individual character with the very best in furnishings, bedding, fabrics, kitchenware and amenities. From an eight bedroom luxury retreat to a two bedroom turn-of-the-century cottage in the heart of the vineyard, for a truly unique holiday experience, these properties are recognised as amongst the very best available in New Zealand. As we do not wholesale or advertise our properties all bookings are directly with the winery. Therefore you will not find us in travel shops or discount brochures and 80% of our guests are either repeat visitors or personal recommendations through word of mouth. So which-ever one you choose, you can be assured of a discrete, private, luxurious stay. ... more   less
