      Fabulous, Warm & Welcoming Retreat”

      First time stayers, and we were thoroughly delighted with the staff and accommodation at Vintners Retreat. The villa was spotlessly clean, warm and cozy, well furnished with modern amenities.... like a home away from home. We loved the place and the warm hospitality of management staff. We highly recommend Vintners Retreat for a weekend getaway, or an extended vacation in the Marlborough region, and we'd definitely stay there again ourselves.

      Best stay for our 2.5 weeks in NZ. We had the 3 bedroom unit just next to the vineyard. It came with a garage, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, spacious living area, outdoor seating, barbecue, garden and more importantly, 2 bathrooms. The 4 nights there was memorable. We'll be staying here if we are in Blenheim again.
