Certificate of Excellence
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.

As a group of old friends we have now stayed at Black Barn's Beach House at Waimarama twice - ten years apart. Both experiences have been amazing. The house hasn't dated at all, it is still beautiful and super relaxing. Black Barn Retreats does a fantastic job of managing the property and the welcome package was very generous. Highly recommend.

From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the incredible site and the river lodge that greeted us. The photos on the Black Barn website simply do not do justice to the beauty of this place! Seriously drop-dead views out across the Tukituki river to the majestic Te Mata Peak, lodge 4 sits in the perfect spot. The lodge itself was incredible & extremely spacious - every single 'homely' touch was thought of. Stunning interiors, beautiful bedrooms & bathrooms, a gorgeous kitchen & huge pantry to wow any chef, not to mention the first mornings breakfast supplies that were left - local mushrooms, honey, homemade jam, breads, bacon, sausages, eggs, homemade muesli, fruit. We ate like kings! We absolutely loved the outdoor fireplace just off the kitchen/dining area. It gave us the ability to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air but the ambience & heat was so beautiful. Tucked under blankets and with overhead heaters also, red wine in hand - amazing! Our 4 children (aged 10 & 12) had their own bunkroom wing which they really enjoyed, but if you had younger kids, there is also a king bedroom right beside. The pool and pool pavilion were seriously wowsers! If only it wasn't winter and we could get amongst that pool. It sits in a stunning position parallel with the Tuki River. As we were 2 sport-loving families, we enjoyed getting out onto the big flat lawn adjacent to the lodge to play cricket and football. The Dad's cycle and the surrounding roads are incredible for road cycling. The Mum's went into Havelock North to shop and get groceries. We all enjoyed heading to Red Bridge Cafe just down the road 20 minutes walk for coffee. But actually, we were so happy to just stay at the lodge and enjoy the experience of being there. Thank you Black Barn! We can't wait to return.

Going away for three nights just up the road from home was an easy and relaxing choice. A beautiful location and beautiful accommodation was the perfect setting for a birthday surprise celebration. The fully equipped space had everything we expected - well appointed kitchen, big double oven, luxurious bath robes. Lovely locally made lavender body products. Sports equipment if you wanted it tennis rackets and croquet set. It was lovely to share this space with our friends.

This is an absolutely beautiful house with every thing that you could possibly need. It is extremely high spec, very comfortable and cozy. It is very spacious with an ensuite on every room. It became a joke that every time we opened a door there was an amazing deck beyond, fully furnished, with heating! Location is fantastic and we made full use of the close vicinity to the vineyards! It would be an amazing place to stay in the summer with the beach and a playground directly in front of the property.
