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 and atmosphere. With an entertainer’s kitchen opening onto the dining, living rooms and deck, the gardens are private and sunny – also suited to smaller weddings and gatherings. With two bathrooms, two queen, two double and 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 and 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 and herbs, organic, local and 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 and cycle trails, beaches, local wineries, surfing the point break, beautiful Te Mata peak walks, local markets, and the extensive HB cycle trail at the gate.

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.
Our party of four adults thoroughly enjoyed two perfect summer days at the Clearview Homestead. The beds were great, the rooms clean and airy and the staff very helpful. Meals at the Clearview Restaurant meant we didn't need to do much cooking but there was a large well-equipped kitchen and a great BBQ at the Homestead if we hadn't felt so lazy! We would have stayed longer but others were already booked in. We'll happily go again sometime!
