We arrived at the accommodation very early as it was such a lovely day that we wanted to drop our bags and go out and play on the nearby walking tracks. Shuluh the manager was friendly and helpful in making our accommodation available immediately and making us feel very welcome, even showing us around and pointing out the fresh herb... More

My brother and I stayed one night Villa 2 at the front of the property (nearest Rapaura Rd) and I really wish it was longer !. 2 bedroom 2 bathroom Villa. Spacious, squeaky clean,... More

Although this is not the most central location, the view and peaceful location more than make up for it (plus its only a short taxi ride to the main township). Being self contained, this is a great spot to open a Pinot and cook a soup whilst watching the vineyard and hills with the local farm animals grazing at your... More

We stayed 3 nights and really loved the location and the accommodation provided. The view from our 'home' from every window over the vineyards and up to the mountains was superb and even now as In write this it still is impressive. Hard to have to now pack the car and leave ! Would definitely come back again.

We only stayed for a couple of nights, but this accomodation was so good I would have loved to stay longer. We stayed as a family of 5 and there was ample space for us to spread out and relax. Warm welcoming reception with lots of helpful tips of places to go etc. Excellent location on the 'golden mile' of... More

Clean comfortable and well thought out. The team have at vintners retreat have thought about what they would want in the prefect room. Salt, pepper, a wok and more than half a load worth of dishwashing powder to name a few! If you are looking for a rest and quiet surroundings this is the place for you. After six visit... More

Wonderful location, beautiful views, great facilities and lovely hosting- will definitely be back. So close to all the major wineries and not too far from the sounds area either. Hope that we can stay longer next time

Lovely venue, clean and close to facilities. Sue was a delightful manager and very helpful. Given it was mid winter, it would of been nice if the place had the airconditioning on when we got there. It was freezing and took some time to warm up. No heater in our unit, but we were given one on request.

Nice kitchen and laundry facilities in the suites which were very convenient. we were only guests during this winter visit and so we had run of the place. We used the guest... More

Good experiences. By the low price in low season, I stay one night in stable, two floor property Apparently, it is wise choice. It is excellent for everything. Good facilities and super-friendly staff. I explore wairou river wine estates nearby and continue our journey to able Tasman. I am sure we would choose the retreat for next time.
