Can't beat the location among reknown vineyards. Manager was extremely helpful & accommodating, helping us to arrange a baby cot at the last minute. Great recommendations on lunch & dinner, plus activities in the area - don't miss lunch at Wairau Cellar Doors next door and you don't have to worry about drinking and driving since the cellar doors are...

We have stayed in Blenheim several times and noted this spot on our last visit. 15 minutes outside of the CBD, but well worth the slightly longer drive. Stayed in Villa 12 and can find no fault with the accommodations. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed very comfortable and the baths spotless and thankfully free of the ubiquitous "water... More

We highly recommend Vintner's Retreat if looking for an upmarket, comfortable place to stay within the Marlborough region. Vintner Retreat is located in Raparua Road just outside Blenheim in the heart of the Marlborough region. Check-in - All went accordingly to plan without any hiccups. Villa - our Villa 3 was a 2 storey 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom villa... More

Vintner's Retreat is strategically located with access to amazing wineries in the Marlborough region. The accommodation was a two story, two bedroom, two bath "villa". Great design, and features throughout the place. It overlooked a vineyard with an amazing view of the mountains behind the vineyard. See the attached photo.

The quality of our accommodation was very high- we had a wonderful 2 storey, 2 bedroom unit. Everything was there- from beautiful kitchen appliances and utensils, Molton Brown bath products (a favourite of mine), a vase of fresh flowers. It's the little touches that go a long way. We only wish we'd had longer than one night!

Our cottage looked amazing, everything there, fully equipped kitchen with very cute dishwasher, very comfy bed, nice bathroom, beautiful fireplace. I just wished that someone would have heated up the cottage when we arrived! It took us at least 3 hours to get warm. The shower was good but due to the lack of a glass door the bathroom was... More

Hello Robert W Thank you for your review, however I think you may have reviewed the wrong property - we have neither fires or pine trees here at Vintners Retreat. The place you did stay at does sound very nice, apart from the lack of initial warmth : ) Kind regards Shulah More

One of the most scenic places I ever stayed and I'm very well travelled. Our courtyard was facing the vineyards and we had a wonderful BBQ outdoor. Amazing! The villas are very spacious and well equipped. Would recommend to anyone!

Lovely self contained 2 bedroom unit, within walking distance of a number of wineries. Plenty of room and the shower had the best water pressure of any place I have ever stayed in! Helpful staff and close to other activities for those who are not into wine tasting.

We stayed here for 3 nights in Sept 2014. We found it while on the road driving north from Christchurch. What a find. 2 bedroom, fully self contained luxury apartments located in the heart of the Marlborough wine district. They helped with winery tours and directions and suggestions on what to see and where to eat. So helpful and luxurious.... More

Hello Larabris Thanks for your lovely review, it is always nice to hear that guests enjoyed their time with us. We agree the Cork and Keg is a neat little pub and the fire is awesome during Marlborough's cooler months! Kind regards Shulah and Martin More

We had a lovely 3 night stay in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom villa. We cooked at home one night & we had all the kitchen equipment we needed. It was modern, bright and very comfortable; the beds were super comfortable. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone & would certainly stay here again.
