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... More

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... More

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. The convenient location is nearby many wineries, interesting local sights and has quick access to Blenheim for groceries and shopping. Anne and Tony have developed the art of... More

The apartment is fully self contained and includes everythoing you could need. Blenheim township is about 20 mins walk and the vineyards are very handy too. Whether you are... More

I found Apresto in 2006 when I needed a place to stay for a couple of weeks. I have been back 2-3 times per year since then. I can't think of a better place for me to stay on my regular visits, and I know the area well. Great place, great hosts. Perfect for my needs.
