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. We were warmly greeted by super efficient Nadia, who showed us to our Villa for a quick rundown of rules and tips for our stay VILLA 13 : squeaky clean and smells gorgeous....

It's feels rather like a small housing estate with a cluster of identical buildings albeit on the boundary of a large vineyard. It does feel a little soulless but equally it ticks all the boxes for modern spacious,well fitted out accommodation.It is also a great location for checking out the local vineyards and there is a range of local cafes...

We booked a two room suite. It was very spacious and fully equipped. Tidy and neat the housekeeper did a very good job. The...

I cannot speak highly enough of Vintners Retreat - this is the second time we've stayed and it's been perfect both times. The new owners are lovely and nothing is a problem. They even organised the local pub/ restaurant to pick us up and drop us back after dinner - awesome. The accommodation is beautiful, the apartments are very spacious...

We stayed in a 2 room villa, it had plenty of space and a large living area and patio. We enjoyed the BBQ on the patio as we decided to have a cookout with friends. The hosts were very friendly and provided good information on the area and favorite restaurants.

As a family with tween / teenage kids we loved the space that Vintners Retreat offered. After a few nights in motels on the road it was lovely to have space to ourselves. Vintners Retreat is well located for wine-tasting and sight-seeing. The staff are just lovely, the apartment was spacious and well-appointed and the surrounding wineries delicious! Would highly...

We're just back from spending a weekend at the Vintners Retreat, along with 35 of our friends and family. What a beautiful, beautiful spot, and what superb accommodation. Comfortable, well equipped, with luxurious fixtures and fittings, we found the villas - and the "village" setting - absolutely perfect for our needs. We were blessed with great weather which really highlighted...

We stayed here in a large group. The two room semi-detached villas were clean, comfortable, with good linen and comfy beds. They were fairly quiet, with not much noise coming from the villa next door. You need a car -$60 for a cab to or from Blenheim, but in nearby (but still Wally a drive away) Renwick there is a...

Such a beautiful place to stay at which had everything required for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The location is amazing, sitting amongst many great vineyards and not far to drive or ride to many others. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great place if you want to have the winery experience or chill out with many options with beautiful views.
