Kia Ora. Thank you for the lovely stay in your villas. We enjoyed very much, the wine tasting and lunch at the Cafe. Awesome experience! Nga mihi

Stayed in Garden Room. Lovely outlook to gardens. Excellent wine tasting next door!

Room and breakfast excellent.

Comfortable room - all clean and tidy plus great location. All we could want for a one night stop-over. We also tried your wine. Superb Pinot Noir and I still cannot stop laughing at the tasting notes.

This is the second time we've stayed and we're never disappointed. Love it. Rooms are delightful, location spot on. Beautiful retreat. Thank you for the breakfasts. Look forward to our next stay.

We had a really wonderful stay - fantastic location!

Breakfast was lovely. Bed very comfortable.

Thanks for a fabulous weekend away! Great accommodation and service with a stunning view. Everything we needed at out fingertips - or within walking distance. Loved having plunger coffee in the room too. Hope to come back again :) 

Lovely relaxing outlook, great comfortable bed, had a lovely stay.

Love it! Love it! Love it!  We'll be coming back!!!

Excellent site & facilities, peace & quiet, comfortable bed & good breakfast. Would definitely recommend to friends & would come again.

So lovely to arrive Friday evening and walk into a toasty warm unit - awesome! Great accommodation - really enjoyed our stay. Cheers

Lovely accommodation, lovely wine. Great weekend away. Will recommend to others.

Good location, nice room, clean.

Really enjoyed our stay - lovely studio, beautiful setting. Breakfast was delicious - we had everything we could have asked for.

Thanks very much for a lovely stay. Your Villas are cute, cosy and peaceful. We had a lovely time. Thank you.

Beautiful landscape, enjoyed the sound of the birds. Very relaxing, enjoyed the whole area and appreciated the wine. An experience we would like to repeat. Thank you.

Loved the ambience and spaciousness of our villa. Intend to come back with friends to enjoy the Martinborough wine experience.

Very comfortable villa and very relaxing. Lovely looking out to farmland. Nice touch - wine tasting at Margrain in afternoon. Good choice of cereal and fruit. Would come again.

We have enjoyed our stay here - loved our balcony and having breakfast in the sun. This is the most beautiful, tranquil setting, and our villa was very well equipped. We also loved the beautiful gardens and blossom trees in the vineyard. We will definitely come here again.

Large, and room is very comfortable, and a huge bed. Outlook is peaceful and quiet. Surroundings are very comfortable.

We had a lovely stay with you, so peaceful and tranquil. We even managed a couple of days without using the car, which is great for us on an 8 week tour of New Zealand, and such fabulous wines as well. We couldn't have asked for any more.
Thank you once again.


We left on Friday just before the office was open, so were unable to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in the little villa. We both loved the garden room villa and will come again. The garden and a view of the vines from the picnic tables was just wonderful. We even enjoyed the little rabbits that visited us morning and evening.
We enjoyed meeting people in town, at the restaurants and out wine tasting. We both really enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much.


Thanks for making the past weekend one of the nicest getaways we've had in a long, long, time.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the break was absolutely perfect. We loved the accommodation and how it is cited to watch the sun go down in the evening. Your lovely sunny welcome made us feel great and this carried right through the weekend. The wet area showers are just great for anyone with disability issues and the open plan room would be really suitable for people with mobility issues too. We loved the wine (both kinds) in the rooms and having a little fridge was great. The breakfast was just lovely too (great Museli). The bed was comfortable. We will all see you again sometime soon – so Thanks a million!!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - it was all too short.
Your villas are very comfy and spacious, we certainly hope there will be an opportunity to return - maybe spring or summer next time, we were so lucky with the weather this trip though, didn't rain until we got home!
Enjoyed a meal in your cafe - it was superb

Just to say "Thank you" for a wonderful stay that my husband and I had at your gatehouse room last night.
Just loved the whole atmosphere, right down to the singing tui bird and then a lovely breakfast
Thanks again and shall recommend your place to our friends.
