My friend and I visited for the Grape Ride - an annual bike ride around the area starting and finishing at nearby Renwick. Omaka Heights was really convenient for us, our hosts were lovely, and the facilities all we could have asked for. The wine and nibbles when we returned from the ride were a wonderful surprise, and the breakfasts... More

Absolutely adored Omaka Heights. The service was beyond excellent - friendly, attentative, just like visiting a good friend's house. The views were truly breathtaking.. the complimentary bottle of wine was gorgeous, and cooked breakfast was just absolutely lovely. The accomodation itself was roomy, clean, and cozy. This is truly a gem of a place to stay at. I cannot wait... More

My family and I loved staying at Omaka Heights. The views were stunning and the location unbeatable. We were pleasantly surprised to receive complimentary wine and snacks upon arrival. The breakfast was elegant and hearty. The hosts were warm and friendly. We would have loved to stay longer.

Omaka Heights (O/H) came recommended to us by friends who had stayed there a few years earlier. O/H was warm and cozy and came with a private patio to sip wine and watch the valley below.The spacious room was very clean and neat with the bath ensuite. If you enjoy animals you will love the Alpacas which are fun to... More

Clean, comfortable rooms with beautiful views of the hills of Omaka. We loved staying on a farm, seeing the alpaca, and chatting with the gracious hosts. Nibbles and wine are provided in the late afternoon/evening, which is a perfect way to relax after biking around the vineyards.

What a wonderful view, location and absolutely friendly, welcoming hosts. We stayed for two nights...it was the perfect location for touring the wine district in Marlborough, we highly recommend it. Blenheim is only a 5 minute drive...wineries on your doorstep. Wake up to spectacular mountain views....and a few Alpaca's grazing by. Don't bother staying in town, this is the best... More

My wife and I stayed with Robin and Nancy for four nights. We used the B & b as a base to tour the north of the South Island including the Nelson and Kaikoura areas as well as the more immediate wineries. It proved easy to get to all the places we wanted to although the location is a few... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this bed and breakfast and we even decided to stay one day longer. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is great, the rooms are nice, but do not expect anything fancy. The view over the vineyards is amazing and very centrally located in malborough and close to the vineyards. We would...

We loved Omaka Heights with its resident alpacas, beautiful outlook and very comfortable rooms. The views from the panoramic french windows of our room and the communal guest area were superb over the alpaca pastures, the vineyards to the distant mountains. Our host were discrete but very helpful, the food was lovely and plentiful. Highly recommended. We used this as... More
