Set in the heart of the Montana vineyard , this home stay was a positive delight , our very friendly hosts created a homely atmosphere which culminated in a superb ' white breakfast ' which we enjoyed very much . We were just sorry that we could not stay longer .

私たち夫婦は正月休暇で6回目のニュージーランド旅行に、PictonからレンタカーでMarlborough wineの産地で有名なBlenheimを訪れました。Blenheimの郊外約12kmのブドウ畑の真ん中にありますのでレンタカー(GPS付)でないと訪れることは困難ですが、とてもすばらしいB&Bでした。とてもきれいな2階の部屋で窓からブドウ畑が見渡せます。宿泊はいつも2カップルまでしか受け入れないそうです。私たちが泊まったときはオランダからの若いカップルが宿泊されていました。オークランドの消防士を辞めてこのB&BをやっているというオーナーのJohnさんと奥さんの Pauletteさんの「おもてなし」は格別です。ご主人のJohnさんはワインに詳しく、周辺のワイナリーの情報を教えてくれます。人気の宿なので相当前からでないとシーズンによっては予約できません。インターネットで予約した後、websiteを検索して連絡先からメールをすると夕食のリクエストをすることも出来ます。私達は2泊しましたが1泊目の夕食を予約していました。奥様のPauletteさんが腕によりをかけたディナーを作ってくれます。また、夕食の前にはJohnさんに地下のワインセラーに案内され、私たちに最も合うと思われるワインを選んでくれました。建物の周りには野菜畑や果樹園があり採れたものも食卓に出てきます。夕食はテーブルを囲んでご夫妻と一緒に会話をしながらの、高級レストランよりも美味しく、また楽しい夕食でした。ワイン代はご夫妻と割り勘です。夕食の後10時ごろになって、南十字星the Southern Crossを教えてほしいといったところ、Johnさんが裏の畑に出て、満天の星空の中で南十字星を教えてくれました。朝食はプールを見渡す部屋で食べますが、食べたいものを好きなだけリクエストが出来ます。レンタカー利用の個人旅行で家庭的cozyな宿を探している人には、ぜひお勧めです。 My wife and I visited New Zealand for the sixth time on New Year’s holiday from Japan. We drove from Picton to Blenheim which is famous for Marlborough wines. The homestay is located in a vineyard about 12km away from the center of Blenheim was easily accessible by a rental car equipped with a GPS.... More

John and Paulette were attentive to our needs and provided lively conversation and insights into the NZ way of life right from our arrival until the moment we left. Eating together with your hosts enables you to get in depth information about the area and tips on how to make the most of your stay. We chose to rent bikes... More

The house, the location, John and Paulette, were all just amazing!! First off, if this was a small shack, I would still highly rate this place because Paulette and John were a perfect representation of why you want to stay in a B&B, which is to meet amazing local people. I can't say enough nice things about this couple, but... More

What a beautiful home to stay in, we just wished we had been booked in for a longer stay. From start to finish it was just a luxury experience with very genuine and friendly hosts and all the little touches made it special including home baked biscuits and complimentary sherry and port. Gardens were beautifully kept and obviously a lot... More

Stonehaven is not a part of the vineyard, it is a stand alone property surrounded by a working vineyard. The rooms are beautiful, Paulette was a great host and her cooking was lovely. Good location for Marlborough sightseeing and arts

If you're looking for an upscale homestay / B+B, I doubt you could do much better anywhere than spending some time at Stonehaven. Surrounded by beautiful vineyards and immaculate gardens, the house, and bedroom we stayed in (king bed), was superb. John and Paulette made us (and our fellow guests) feel immediately at home and were exceptionally helpful in recommending... More

A lovely place to stay in the heart of the wineries. The welcome by John and Paulette was second to none and the food and wine was of 'Fine Dining' quality. There are only two rooms for guests, but both are very good. We would highly recommend staying here.

Stonehaven is a lovely house set in the heart of the Marlborough wine region. John and Paulette made the stay wonderful, and we were delighted to be able to spend the two nights with them in between touring the (unbelievably) numerous wineries! Rooms were very clean with lovely complementary touches, and we were given excellent ideas for sightseeing and wineries.... More
