Stunning Panoramic Views and a Swimming Pool!

 Fantastic spot with excellent, clean accommodation and a wonderful pool. Perfect week away for all of the family and ideally located for exploring the region. Thanks very much Gina. 

Beautifully Appointed Swiss Chalet

 Great location and a beautiful, clean bach. The host was great as well. Only one downfall - there was not enough bigger pots and serving bowls in the kitchen. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Four Seasons in one Day

 Wonderful couple of days spent in the perfect location, particularly for those travelling on foot. 

Four Seasons in one Day

 My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and it was perfect! Astrid had decorated it for us with chocolate hearts, scrabble tiles and a banner with our names on it, which were lovely touches. The distance from Oneroa was great: near enough to comfortably walk, but far enough from the busyness. Overall it was a fantastic place to stay, and we'd recommend it highly :). 

Blenheim Retro Riverside Retreat

 What a lovely little place to stay. Thank goodness the aircon works so well; we arrived in the middle of the day to 30 degrees in Blenheim, and within minutes the place was cooled down and comfortable to be in. The house has a lovely Kiwi Bach feel yet we are in the middle of town - so amenities are within very easy walking distance. Would deal with these lovely people again without a doubt, thanks.
