We hired Riverside Retreats 2, 3 and 6 to accommodate our family for our wedding at the River Room. All 3 retreats were beautiful and spacious with generous living areas and absolutely stunning views of the Tukituki river and surrounding countryside. Lots of breakfast food was provided, including delicious coffee and muesli, and the retreats were all spotlessly clean and... More

We have stayed at some of the other retreats and this was our first experience of Poplars 1. I appreciated the spacious bedrooms, all with their own en suites, two with a bath, all similarly luxurious so a group could share without anyone feeling hard done by. The lodges are not serviced but there are ample supplies of everything you... More

We had a long weekend at The Beach House at Waimarama and despite the worst weather in ten years with snow and power outage - we still had a wonderful time with friends and family in the beautifully decorated and super cosy Beach House. We braved the conditions and walked on the beach right at its step. Sure did blow... More

A fabulous place to stay - I had my 60th there last weekend and 20 people staying in 3 houses. It was amazing, views magical and one of my friends when she arrived, texted me and said "Wow I am not going anywhere I am staying here". We all have nice lifestyles so we are not unaccustomed to staying in... More

Our life is pretty full with work and family commitments and we really wanted a weekend away from it all but didn't want to waste time in traveling and wanted to be somewhere that felt like home only better. We like interesting architecture and here one could live in it ( the proportions of Rush cottage are deeply satisfying) but... More

We love holidaying in this region so decided to treat ourselves for an anniversary getaway. Fantastic place, great setting and just beautiful accomodation. Could not fault it in any way although having a stocked wine supply is a little tempting! Everything we expected and more.

Relaxed elegant, simple and easy. Not one complaint from 9 women..(almost a miracle) At the Blackbarn Beachhouse every single thing had been thought through, or though of. There was nothing we went to find in the kitchen or any other part of the house that was not there. A walk on the Beach....even the little shop opened out of hours... More

We had the most amazing time. Riverside Villa 6 is stunning, every need we could want has already been thought of. The furnishings, linens, beds, kitchen staples and wine cabinet were first class. Not to mention the stunning views down the TukiTuki River and proximity to the amazing wine district of Gimlett Gravels. We could not have asked for more... More

We spent 4 x nights at Riverside Lodge 6 in what surely must be one of the most idyllic surrounds in NZ. Even though there was just the 2 of us the residence enveloped us in warmth and luxury. Every whim was catered for including local fresh produce for breakfast which lasted us for 4 days. Although provided with heat... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Black Barn Vineyards in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand offers fourteen unique properties for nightly rental. Each is fully self contained and exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. Each is selected for its prime location, unique character and original style. They are all luxuriously appointed to reflect their individual character with the very best in furnishings, bedding, fabrics, kitchenware and amenities. From an eight bedroom luxury retreat to a two bedroom turn-of-the-century cottage in the heart of the vineyard, for a truly unique holiday experience, these properties are recognised as amongst the very best available in New Zealand. As we do not wholesale or advertise our properties all bookings are directly with the winery. Therefore you will not find us in travel shops or discount brochures and 80% of our guests are either repeat visitors or personal recommendations through word of mouth. So which-ever one you choose, you can be assured of a discrete, private, luxurious stay. ... more   less
