Luxury Bed & Breakfast in a unique vineyard setting Far from the madding crowds, in the heart of Marlborough's wine district, you will find Straw Lodge Vineyard, and our very different straw-bale constructed homestead and Vineyard Suites - a very special place where rest, relaxation and rejuvenation awaits the discerning traveller. Nestled amongst organic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir vines Visible from each suite are glorious mountain ranges, behind which the sun sets in beautiful displays of rich colours. Before you retire to your cosy king size bed, bathe in our warm spa pool at night, and gaze up at the clear skies filled with a galaxy of stars. Each private suite has a lounge and en-suite bathroom. Full sumptuous breakfast created from local produce Rise at your leisure to a treat of a continental and/or cooked breakfast, created from home grown or locally produced foods of your choice. Then set out on our pedal bikes, take your own vehicle, or book a tour through the surrounding wineries. Internet use is free of charge, as are our golf clubs, DVDs, and a bottle of wine from our vineyard!

What a delightful family you are! I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and Mark and your very special children, and was so glad you came to stay with us at Straw Lodge. I wished you could have stayed longer, to enjoy more of this lovely Marlborough region, and for us to be able to enjoy more of your company too! We trust the remainder of your holiday in New Zealand was wonderful and hope you will be able to return one day. In the meantime, enjoy your beautiful country Switzerland, Best wishes always, Trudy and Barry

The privilege was definitely ours to have been able to host you Ron and Ramona, Even before you arrived, we had the feeling that your visit would be a very special one, as you had put so much thought and effort into arranging outings for yourselves and your friends Sorin and Madalina, Then for the few days you were with us, we enjoyed your company so tremendously that we felt blessed to have met you. We were sad to say farewell but a visit like yours is what makes having a homestay so wonderful!!
