Unique, spacious and relaxing accommodation, Vintners Retreat offers 9 x two bedroom, two bathroom villas and 2 x three bedroom, two bathroom villas. All villas are fully self-contained, they have everything you need for an extended stay, including a BBQ on the patio and a spa in the bathroom. We are nestled in the heart of the Marlborough vineyards, New Zealand’s wine capital. We are 5 minutes walking distance to 3 fabulous Wineries and many more Wineries only 10-15 minutes’ walk away. Set on 4 acres of landscaped gardens with a solar-heated outdoor pool & tennis court, you will not find any accommodation more suited to family or group holidays! Each villa is private, you have your own backyard, full kitchen, a washer and dryer. We all know that glorious feeling of being able to wash ALL your clothes at once while travelling! (That got you smiling!) Under 2 hours flight from Auckland, 40 minutes from Christchurch and 15 minutes from Wellington, Vintners Retreat is ideally placed!

We stayed 2 nights in a large group, staying in 2 of the three bedroom lodges. The views over the vineyards to the mountains were lovely and the rooms very comfortable, clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we barbecued both nights, feeding 12 with ease. Mike the manager was very welcoming and helpful. We highly recommend Vintners Retreat.

The villa we had had a nice view of the vineyards and the rooms were nice and spacious. The shower had good pressure and we had enough towels and toiletries for our stay. The location was good as it was a short drive to the wineries. The downer was that the tv wasn’t connecting to the WIFI and the place didn’t have an alternative. Connection to our devices was also patchy at times. Which meant that after a full day of activities and sightseeing we couldn’t really unwind using the apps on the TV. I mean what’s a smart tv without wifi? I don’t think the people at the front desk understood what was happening as the response we got was a laissez-faire, “it’s out of our control.” The attitude/response was blemish on an otherwise good stay.

Dear tjj2015x Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Vintners Retreat. Lovely to hear you enjoyed our spacious villa and the surrounding area. Having checked the TV myself whilst you were here, I found that the internet was connected and working. I am sorry I cannot be held responsible for your inability to log into your own Netflix account.

The Retreat is almost like a small subdivision in the middle of the winery region. We had a one story, 2 bedroom, 2 bath place that would work for 2 couples or a family. It included a large dining / living area, a well -equipped kitchen, garage (we didn’t use) and 2 full bathrooms. There are 3 wineries within easy walking distance if you don’t want to drive. I took a walk into the vineyard directly behind the Retreat for several evening photos. We drove early to the more distant ones we wanted to visit, then came back for lunch and a local afternoon visit. Highly recommend this place.
