About Wendy Palmer
We live next door in the original century plus old farmhouse now restored for modern life which is surrounded by a 3 acre garden accredited as one of national significance by the New Zealand Gardens Trust. Our main business is growing grapes but we love the happy positive energy our holidaying visitors bring to the farm.
Wendy Palmer purchased this House in 2011
Why Wendy Palmer chose Blenheim
We bought the next door farm and inherited a house that had been built for the granddaughter of the couple that had built our house. This new house had an extensive garden that needed some renovating and a charming pool. It was just perfect for a holiday home. Over the years I have stayed in many holiday homes in many parts of the world and I have become rather opinionated about what makes this accommodation work well for the holidaymaker. It was great fun putting these ideas into action and creating my dream holiday home. However, uniquely, I have never stayed in my dream holiday home!
What makes this House unique
We chose Marlborough to be our forever home nearly 2 decades ago. It has a great sunny climate and is filled with every outdoor activity imaginable which is important to us. There are stunning views in Marlborough and Eliza's has more than its fair share. The dramatic sunsets over the Richmond Ranges are a nightly pleasure.

Amazing Cottage in the Heart of Wine Country
A really beautiful and well maintained cottage with some exceptional personal touches, such as fresh baked bread, a bottle of wine and newspaper for when you arrive. An amazing garden to watch the sunset over the vineyards. We took our dog for a sunrise walk through the vineyards as well.
The cottage is easy to find with easy access to the Picton Ferry and the wineries of Blenheim. As we loaded the car and pulled away my wife said "you know we are coming back."
Thank you Chris!
The house was beautiful. We loved it
It was great, worth every penny. I would highly recommend
Charming Light filled apartment in the heart of Lyttleton.
We loved our stay here. The very tasteful apartment has everything you need with fantastic views of both the port and the hills. With great cafes and restaurants literally on our doorstep we loved experiencing the youthful vibe of this lovely part of Christchurch. Liam is a thoughtful host. It’s a very high recommendation from us.
Really enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our second visit to the cottage. The attention to detail and levels of comfort make this the ultimate 'home away from home'. Would definitely recommend.

Perfection! Eliza’s Garden Cottage is a beautiful and immaculate place to stay. Wendy Palmer, the owner, has thought of everything to make the house comfortable. Vases filled with flowers, and delicious provisions make this a perfect place to relax and enjoy Blenheim.
Thank you Ruth. You and David were the most perfect of guests. It was a true pleasure hosting you. I hope you had a great time in Napier and maybe we'll meet again someday.
