“Perfect Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2011

We stayed 3 nights and each night was wonderful. We had personalized name plates welcoming us at the entrance. The cottage was very large, spacious, and well decorated. The bathroom floors were heated which was a real plus in the winter. The view was everything we could have hoped for. The walk through the vineyard was very nice after a day of wine tasting. They had a selection of Walnut Block wines in the cottages, it was very cool to drink the wine from the very same vineyard we are staying at. TV stand was cool as it could turn so we could watch from the couch and the bed, there was a ipod stereo too. The refrig was stocked with a nice selection breakfast items. Everything was top notch and clean. Location of the cottages are great, 5 min from the super market and 5-15 min from a bunch of wineries.

This is simply superb. Two beautifully presented cottages looking over the vineyards with everything you need for a totally relaxing stay. Just a 5 min drive from the centre of Blenheim, and a 10 min drive to the major vineyards, this is an oasis of tranquillity and peace. The cottages have huge beds, very comfortable, sofas and dining table, great kitchenette with breakfast provided. The bathroom is magnificent - lovely cosy underfloor heating and great shower, making it a real highlight of our trip so far. The views from the big windows and the deck are marvellous, and the stars are incredibly bright at night due to the absence of streetlamps. Free fast internet was a bonus too, and the Walnut block wine was excellent. The host Clyde recommended several restaurants and Bubblygrape tours, and he was spot on. Overall, a real gem, and we just wish we could have stayed for a month!!

Great little cottage in the middle of the vineyards, excellent views, really comfortable bed, nice big shower and bathroom, breakfast provisions were great & their sav blanc was a ripper. Thouroughly enjoyed our one night & wished we could have stayed longer. Well done!

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a great place to relaxed and explore the wine tasing region from. The cottages are very well kitted out. They are modern and comfortable - the bed is huge and has lovely bedding, making it feel very luxurious.

What a perfect place to stay. Accomodation was faultless and location was perfect. One of those places that is beautiful AND functional. Loads of room. you could just plonk yourself in this place and stay a week. It was the BEST base for touring around the Marlborough wine region and the owners provided very reliable tips on where to eat in the area (Hanz Herzog, Gibbs, Wairau River, Highfield Estate wineries). All fab. Breakfast provisions were great, good coffee, cereal, toast, juice, milk... everything you needed. You can easily eat in - the kitchen has a very practical selection of items. We loved having breakfast on the deck each morning and taking in that amazing view of the wineries. Also good for a night in with a bottle of wine... had every cable TV channel available if you just wanted to chill and watch a movie vs. going out for a formal meal at night.

A very well appointed and comfortable self contained cottage overlooking a vineyard and giant walnut tree. Friendly, helpful hosts. A very enjoyable stay in every way.
