Melissa and Shayne were wonderful hosts - so very accommodating and welcoming. Melissa even did some grocery shopping for us. The apartment (situated above a carport and the laundry) is very well equipped and very, very comfortable. It is large and roomy; kitchen/dining room/lounge as an open space with all the modern conveniences. The bedroom has a king size bed,...

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...

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...

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!!

Tony and Anne's kindness instantly made us feel as those we were staying with friends. The independent apartment in a quiet country setting is neat as a pin, comfortable and well equipped.
