Wellington's weather was not delivering summer so a last minute getaway to 'The Vines' was just perfect. The location, setting, cottage, pool, places to explore - fabulous. Our two children had many adventures on the safe property. We spent fun family hours by the beautiful pool, peaceful evenings under the Hawkes Bay sun. Mary and Hamish are wonderful hosts. They could not have been more helpful or friendly, happy to chat yet also were conscience of us having special family time together. We will return. In the words of our five year old, "mum, this is paradise". Say no more.
