  • A fantastic place to stay for a great family holiday

    A fantastic place to stay for a great family holiday. The house has fantastic amenities, a lovely spa pool with a gorgeous view overlooking the sounds, and with two beaches a short walk away with access to kayaks and a row boat.

    Diane was a real pleasure to deal with. The house, surrounds, views are amazing. This has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. We will be back. Thank you for such an amazing holiday.

  • The property had absolutely everything we could want in a getaway

    The property had absolutely everything we could want in a getaway. There is nothing I would change (except bringing the Sounds closer to Christchurch!). I'd recommend stopping at the wineries in Blenheim on the way, we loved the tastings and just added to the stay when we could break open our bottles there. The hosts are incredibly thoughtful and even called to make sure we arrived safely! Just so lovely, I would go back in a heartbeat.
