Classy cottage amongst the grapevines

 Perfect setting in the vines and away from most of civilisation. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and had a well set up kitchen with plenty of breakfast provisions and other things that you may need if you are doing a bit of cooking. Only thing that would have helped is bug screens on the window to keep the nasties out when you don;t want to put the aircon on.

Classy cottage amongst the grapevines

 Our travels around New Zealand (both North and South Islands) are now over and it is time to reflect on our wonderful holiday. Our short stay at Vigne Cottage was undoubtably the best location in which we stayed. Everything exceeded our expectations from the warm welcome from the owners through to the idyllic location and great comfort and facilities of the cottage. We especially appreciated the insights into the working of the vineyard and of course the tasting of some of the product ! 


 Property was clean. But more impressive were the interior decorations of the cottage. Will stay again when in Dunedin 

Patia Point View - Stunning views!

 This property met our expectations, it is a hunble wee place, authentic NZ.
