Antares Homestay
Ranked #20 of 44 Blenheim B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 May 2013

Lovely and comfortable place right in the heart of the vineyards. We spent 2 nights in Blenheim to sample some of the famous and local vineyards and this was the perfect spot for us to set up home. Recommend you take their bikes out and explore as many of the vineyards in the area as you can manage. We popped into Hans Herzog (across the road from the Homestay) on the way home and it turned out to be our favourite of the day - worth paying the few dollars to do their tasting.

We really enjoyed our two days at Antares homestay. Lovely apartment with a big living/dining room. Two large bedrooms with wonderful beds and soft Egyptian cotton towels. Because we have a five year old daughter we chose to make dinner at home. Mandy and Paddy kindly let us use their barbecue. Making dinner it was wonderful to pick fresh lemons and fresh herbs just outside our door. But the best thing about this stay is the hosts, they are very friendly and helpful. They organised this wonderful wine tour for us. It's a shame we only could stay for two nights. Wish to come back, but it takes 25 hours by air from Norway. Some day we will see you again. thank you!

If it is tranquillity, comfort, great facilities and a beautiful setting that you want, look no further than a stay at Antares near Blenheim.  Hosts Mandy and Pat have established an excellent homestay resort that has first class spacious accommodation, beautifullly furnished, complemented with a great rural setting, hot tub and pool facilities.  Close to a number of places of interest in the Blenheim area, we stayed for 3 nights and were really disappointed that our stay had come to an end.
We will definitely be returning.

After four days staying in DOC huts on the Abel Tasman, my brother, father and I were keen to find somewhere we could laze for two nights. Antares Homestay was just right for this. Mandy and Patrick only took over the homestay recently but it's amazing how much they have done to the place. Beautifully decorated with quirkily shaped rooms in the octagonal apartment. The jacuzzi was just outside (perfect for our aching limbs after the tramp) and there was also a solar-powered pool which we made good use of. Breakfast was provided, although we thought our supplies might have been replenished for the second day. The kitchen and living areas make this a very user-friendly apartment and there are stunning views over the vineyards. It is also very convenient for many of the wineries, including Herzog which has a great restaurant.
