We wanted a room on a vineyard and this gave us a whole house with two en suite bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, utility and BBQ terrace. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too kind but we did manage one BBQ and a game of tennis. Check in with Nadine was extremely fast and efficient and our only gripe is the poor WiFi!

We were part if a wedding party. First impressions were well appointed modern villas. I was concerned about road noise as ours was closer to the highway, but that proved not to be a problem withthe double glazing. Villa was well appointed and spacious. Service was friendly. It's located well out of Blenheim so road transport is a must.

Stayed here with family of 4 for one night in December. Loved it - biggest regret was spending only one night - the size of the unit begs for a longer stay. Why stay somewhere so big and with so many amenities for just one night. We stayed in unit #5, the stables. These units are the furthest from the...

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!
