My sister, dad and I stayed for two nights in the Stables at Vintners Retreat in mid July. My sister and I had stayed for two nights in August 2010 and knew how good this accommodation was and four years later we were certainly not disappointed.
The villas are roomy, comfortable and in a great location. There is plenty of room on the site with each duplex of units separated from the others by lawns and gardens so you do not feel at all crowded. The two bedroom unit has a great kitchen, laundry and two bathrooms as well as a comfy loungeroom and a great patio area outdoors.... which would be fantastic in summer! the views of mountains and vineyards is relaxing and interesting, even in mid winter. The heating works well and there is even a small garage for your car if you choose to use it.
The staff are helpful and on call and the location right in the middle of top Marlborough wineries is perfect!
Although this was the most expensive accommodation of our one week roadtrip around the north of the south island, it was worth it and we would definitely return again... perhaps for four nights next time.
