The historic Clearview Homestead began life as a tobacco drying shed before becoming the family home of the Vidal family, circa 1915 as they established grapevines on this ‘No2’ vineyard. Nestled behind the hedge above the winery, the fully renovated rustic Homestead has become a sprawling family accommodation full of character & atmosphere. With an entertainer’s kitchen opening onto the dining, living rooms & deck, the gardens are private and sunny – also suited to smaller weddings & gatherings. With two bathrooms, two queen, two double & one twin single bedroom, the house suits varied groups, sleeping ten people easily. The smaller rear two bedroom rimu-lined ‘Shearer’s Quarters’ can be rented & secured separately. Enjoy a glass of Estate Chardonnay on the sunset deck in summer, or relax inside warmed in winter with a huge logfire, enjoying a book with a glass of Clearview Estate full bodied red wine.

Just a few steps away is our Red-Shed Restaurant using our own produce & herbs, organic, local & free range ingredients wherever possible to create our contemporary Mediterranean menu. For a relaxing brunch, a long lunch, the Clearview platter or coffee - enjoy casual rustic dining with friendly service. Sample the extensive range of wines at our Cellar Door, selecting the perfect wines to take home with you. Ideal for families or a long weekend get-away with friends, there are many local activities to experience; trips to the gannet colony, horse treks, river walks & cycle trails, beaches, local wineries, surfing the point break, beautiful Te Mata peak walks, local markets, & the extensive HB cycle trail at the gate.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only & ashtrays to be used. Horses welcome with prior arrangement for grazing. The homestead is situated on a working winery/restaurant establishment, children will need to be supervised when outdoors. Dogs are welcome with advance notice - they must sleep outside and be tied up and kept under control.

    The host Santani goes above and beyond to ensure the stay is enjoyable. The house, staff and winery are all excellent. The location is perfect for couples or large groups with children with the beach being just over the road. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay in a beautiful setting and will definitely return.

  • Wonderful property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there

    Wonderful property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Even better that the wine is fabulous and the restaurant/wine tasting within walking distance (20 meters!) from house.

    Wonderful spot for large groups; we had eleven and we were not bulging at the seams. It's a quirky place, with a great kitchen and plenty of utensils and cooking gear. It gives the impression that it has been the scene for some great gatherings in the past. A fire was lit for our arrival, heaters were on, although not really needed, and the extensive covered verandah provides an overflow area for children to play. Staff brought up some gas for the barbecue and it was all very comfortable.

    Great villa for a large group, plenty of space and both adults and kids (including our overseas family) enjoyed it and the lovely setting. Nice places to run/ride/walk in the morning and closer to the good beaches and other vineyards than Napier.
