After a week in a camper van, my girlfriend and I decided to splurge on a few nights near Blenheim. We couldn't have picked a more beautiful spot. Nadine was wonderful with giving us memorable recommendations for where to eat and drink. We had just been to Napa California earlier in the year and out experience here was just as...

A great place to stay, - roomy, comfortable, well equipped, and in a great location. Easy walk to some of the local wineries, and a short drive to local shopping and a great range of additional vineyards. Road access from both South and North is hassle free.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night on our way south. It has everything you could want for a comfortable stay and is only one hour away from the Interislander Ferry, so an ideal location for travellers. Not cheap, but good value.

The villas at Vintners are excellent. Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath with a washer/dryer in the middle of a dozen vineyards. We really enjoyed the pool on premises and then enjoying a drink on the patio each villa has out back.

Travelling south en route to Christchurch, as railway and route 1 closed for earthquake. Well located in vineyards, and helpful staff. Washing dryer in our bungalow was not working, so staff let us use hotel dryers - thanks!!! Breakfast is limited - still a break from another full English! Beware journey south - lots of roadworks slow the journey and...

We stayed at Vintners during the Marlbourough Wine and food festival with 2 other couples. This is our 3rd stay and was equally pleasurable as the other two. The 3 bedroom unit is spacious and comfortable with a well appointed kitchen. Out door living is the key and we spent most of our time on the patio soaking in the...

We booked this accommodation having struggled to find somewhere in the Renwick area immediately following the Marlborough food and wine festival. It was more expensive than we would ordinarily pay but we did get a huge, very well furnished and equipped villa In a beautiful location amongst the vineyards. Our time in Renwick was short so we were not able...

This is a really lovely & unique place to stay. We had the most gorgeous house, with a large living area, kitchen, dining area, balcony with BBQ & two very spacious en-suite bedrooms. The Retreat is on its own private “estate” amongst all the amazing vineyards, with a communal outdoor pool, tennis court & even a little herb/vegetable garden that...

Just perfect. We stayed In a two bedroomed manor house overlooking the vines. The kitchen was fully equipped. Located in the heart of the wineries and the owners were very helpful suggesting where to eat and which wineries to go to. We will be back!!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at VINTNERS RETREAT luxury accommodation at the Renwick end of Rapaura rd. Somewhat secluded, vineyard outlook , very peaceful.
