We stayed two nights with John and Paulette and wished it had been more. They have a fabulous home that they share and are lovely people. Paullette cooked for us both nights - a great cook and John looked after the wine side of things - also excellent! Their advise and friendship during our stay was most appreciated.

John and Paulette made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped into their wonderful home. The breakfasts and dinner they prepared were top-notch and we were very pleased with the selections, presentation, atmosphere, and overall attention given to every detail. When we dined with them, we felt like we were eating with good friends that we've known for years....

A beautiful spot in a luscious vineyard with gracious, accommodating hosts. John greeted us on our arrival, fixed tea, and sat down with us for an engaging conversation. The room was beautiful (we took the room with king bed and ensuite bathroom), the sunset out the window was not to be missed, and breakfast on the pool terrace was outstanding.

I can continue to add rave reviews to John and Paulette’s Stonehaven Homestay B&B for their hospitality, delicious home cooked meals and beautiful immaculate rooms. Our 4 night stay couldn't have been better. Stonehaven is beautiful; located in the middle of Marlborough vineyards, a short distance from Blenheim and the airport as well as Picton and the Queen Charlotte Sound....
