Wow, what an amazing experience - Mary and Hamish have gone way above our expectations. They are a fabulous and most welcoming couple. Our stay was just perfect, relaxed and the food beautifully presented and scrumptious. A highlight was relaxing by the pool - quiet and serene. Would highly recommend this luxury accommodation - just fabulous. Until next time ...!

We had the most enjoyable stay at the Vines in the nights following our wedding and would definitely recommend a booking here. Our room was beautiful and private, and the setting was perfect for some relaxation. Mary's hospitality was beyond generous, and she was available and wanting to cater to any requests that we may have to ensure that we... More

This is a lovely place but we had a small room with a double not queen bed with a bathroom some distance away through the kitchen. We enjoyed the pool and ambiance but check the cost of meals and wine before you commit.

Mary's hospitality towards us and our 6 month old baby was generous and comprehensive; we were looked after splendidly in terms of comfort, availability of amenities and wonderful cooking. Would recommend for those planning a luxury Hawkes Bay food and wine weekend.

Staying at the Vines was "such fun". The hosts, Mary & Hamish, make you feel so welcome and do everything they can to make your stay a 5 star event, and they succeed. The surroundings are beautiful, the food amazing, (you never go hungry) and the accommodation is very clean & comfortable. I have no problem recommending the Vines, as... More
