Watch the sunrise from your bed and listen to the numerous birds. Coffee and breakfast on the patio and then time to start the day.

Lavenderhill is located within easy reach of many interesting areas including Rabbit Island, Siegfried Winery, Hogland Glass, Mapua and Upper Moutere. Within walking distance is the reknowned Playhouse Theatre. Waimea estuary is a delightful walk to the end of Hoddy Road.

After a stressful day sightseeing the private courtyard catches the afternoon sun offering spectacular sunsets over the Mount Arthur range. The adjoining main house is our private residence and thus help and advice in planning your vacation is never far away

    A lovely private cottage and owners from heaven – so friendly and helpful, and really made us feel like treasured guests particularly our nine year old daughter who was allowed to ride the family’s horses and swim in the pool. John is a font of knowledge on the whole area – which is magnificent and so varied, from stunning beaches, local wineries, Hop gardens, alpine villages and the National Park/Marlborough Sounds which are all easily accessible day trips. We look forward to our next stay.
