We stayed with John and Paulette for two nights in February and would like to reassure anyone researching accommodation in Blenheim that they will not be disappointed if they chose Stonehaven. I knew by the letters and advice I received from Paulette before our stay that we were going to love it and we were not disappointed. We agree with... More

I’d like to preface our review by noting that, during our 17-day trip to NZ, my husband and I stayed at 9 different accommodations throughout the South Island. That being said, my husband and I were quick to agree: Stonehaven was by far our favorite accommodation of the trip- whether B&B, Boutique, or Cottage. Hosts John and Paulette (and black... More

Situated in the middle of a vineyard in the heart of New Zealand's Marlborough wine district, Stonehaven VIneyard Homestay is a surprisingly affordable (considering the quality of the homestay experience) accommodation. The hosts, John and Paulette, are perfectly wonderful folks who treat each guest as if he or she is the only person in the house. Conversation, local information and... More

Be prepared for a relaxing, wonderful New Zealand experience at Stonehaven, which was by far our favorite lodging in NZ. We unfortunately were only there for one night. John and Paulette are incredible hosts. They anticipate your every need, and make you feel more than at home. In addition to the included fabulous breakfast, we highly recommend having dinner as...

We enjoyed homecooked breakfasts with the hosts and the other guests in the sunny and cheerful gazebo overlooking John's beautiful gardens. Wine in the afternoon with John and other guests. Helpful advice on wineries and restaurants. John recommended that we... More

A superb B&B – one of the best I stayed in during my travels through New Zealand. I stayed in February whilst touring the Marlborough wine area. It is perfectly situated in the midst of Marlborough’s finest vineyards. It is an ideal base to tour the various wineries with fantastic views over the surrounding vineyards and the mountains. John and... More

Spending three nights at Stonehaven with John and Paulette was, without question, a highlight of our New Zealand holiday. My husband and I were welcomed into their beautiful home and were treated like family. John and Paulette are two of the nicest and warmest people you could imagine and their home is a welcome respite for the New Zealand traveler.... More
