“Star Amazing Gazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2011

All the stress in your body leaves you from the moment you arrive and are greeted by Wendy and Indy (the very friendly pooch) until you have to leave (when I 'spose all the stress comes back again!). The service is great in that if there's anything you need, you know it's just a holla away, the rest of the time it's like there's no one else around for mile's. Wendy and Marcus are never 'in your face' and you would hardly know they are there! (Maybe sometime's they're not - who knows?) We will be going back with other members of our family. We can thoroughly recommend Akrotiri Estate and there's heaps and heaps to do around the district all within an hour or two drive (if you can tear yourself away from the Estate to begin with!).
Cheers Wendy. See you soon

Room Tip: All Rooms are great. Doesn't matter which one you get.

For a couple who have a fast paced, loud, busy and over indulgent lifestyle… coming to Martinborough was a long awaited peaceful treat. The prerequisites for our accommodation is always that it must have a view or a private outdoor spa, value for money and no kids, Akrotiri ticked all the boxes. Easy to find, clean and welcoming. We had the guest quarters of this estate all to ourselves which made for a pleasant stay, it has a lounge with fridge and dining table, you just leave the dishes and they magically get done when you awake the next day. There is no TV hooked up so books and a few DVDs are provided, some social board games would have been good but I did finally use this opportunity to learn to play chess. The bed is comfortable as are the robes, the bathroom could do with a shelf for toiletries/make up bags etc. The hosts were very friendly and available if needed. They recommended some great eating places, we had a nice time at The Martinborough Hotel, (not waiting 5 deep in a queue for a drink was appreciated), had a divine lunch at Bloom – Murdock James winery and stocked up on local deli treats from The Ingredient to go with the copious amounts of fine wine we drank back at Akrotiri. The highlight for my husband is that Akrotiri is located right next door to a golf course and I was impressed with the bathroom products being paraben/petrochemical free, little touches make all the difference to me as a regular traveller. Grand from the outside, it’s still a quaint, simple country home and while NZ is always number one in my heart I found myself day dreaming in the spa, gazing at sun drenched olive groves imagining that I could be in Spain.

A peaceful and relaxing stay at this hidden gem. With wonderful views while soaking in the spa in beautiful surroundings to the comfortable furniture inside, all made for a stay that is exactly what we were after. We would have no hesitation in coming back to stay and would definately recommend it to other people. Our only wish was that our stay lasted longer.

Stayed two nights and found Akrotiri Estate extremely relaxing. Location was perfect with numerous excellent restaurants close by. Having spent five weeks travelling around NZ we would certainly recommend this accommodation.

We stayed for one night and it turned out great. We loved laying in the hot tub under the stars after a long drive. The hosts were very friendly while giving us lots of space and the run of our section of the BandB...no one else was there that night. The yard and charming animals and pets made it just the kind of place we like.

Thanks for the great stay Wendy, definitely recommend the Spa and Bicycles for travelling around the vineyards. Brilliant way to relax for a few days, with plenty of serenity.

Visited overnight to attend dinner at Martinborough. Room was welcoming as were Wendy and Marcus.
Relaxed with quiet drinks in the lounge before dinner which was within short travel distance of the estate so everything was stressfree. Returned to very comfy bed, quiet facilities un hindered by children or lots of people. Leisurely brew and breakfast in the lounge enjoying the view before heading back to Wellington to reality.
Thanks Wendy and Marcus.
