Bach or holiday home | Te Awanga | #17711
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.

We loved our stay at The Homestead. The house was professionally cleaned before and after our stay which was really nice. The house itself is comfortably rustic. It is spacious and has lots of interesting features which kept us guessing about its history. There are books to read, games to play, comfy outdoor furniture - in other words, everything you could want. We had lunch at the restaurant which was delicious and fell in love with the Clearview Chardonnay. Will definitely come again.
Gorgeous old farm style homestead with well worn charm. We were a group of six staying for a 50th birthday - loads of room for everyone. Lovely deck for afternoon mojitos and a great fire in the living room to gather around. We didn't have any kids with us but there is a really nice lawn for cricket and with a swing to keep them entertained. Plenty of big sofas for an afternoon nap and well equipped kitchen. Will definitely be back !!
Beautiful house with lots of character and very comfortable with sufficient heating for a mid winter visit. Being on a vineyard was a great start, but one that was so welcoming and had such a fantastic restaurant made the visit complete. All the staff we encountered were superb, particularly cellar door staff. I visited with family from Scotland who were traveling around NZ for 5 weeks and listed this as the best place they stayed. I do plan to go back.
Great location and house, sitting off the road amongst the gardens and vines of Clearview Winery, the house has large rooms and a great kitchen. The staff are easy to deal with and chatty so easy to get information from. They opened the tasting room at the winery restaurant just for us and provided a great tasting session, we left laden down with wine...
