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.

The staff .we encountered were friendly and helpful. Overall a great place for families and groups. It is also very close to giesen so... More

We stayed for 2 nights in Villa 7 as a family (5 adults). We loved the space and the beautiful views as we sat outside with a bottle of wine watching the sun go down over the vineyards. Superb! We came prepared from the supermarket with all the food we would need for snacks and breakfast...this is a must! The... More

Our family of 6 stayed for 3 nights in villa 7 which is a 3 brm. Our wider family booked the entire place out for a family reunion. Villa 7 was like a home away from home. Extremely spacious and had everything you'd want plus more( like a walk in wardrobe in the master suite, magazines, car garage). Yes you... More

Hello Babayou69 and thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. We're glad you enjoyed staying with us, however we are so sorry about the wi-fi, which has been under investigation for poor performance. Our technical crew discovered a faulty aerial and router which are now being replaced. Best regards Shulah George More
