About this listing
Situated in the beautiful Wairau Valley - 30 km from Blenheim toward the Nelson Lakes. We welcome you to our B & B that provides a peaceful separate unit with full en-suite, fridge, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities, along with a few treats that looks out over the Richmond Ranges. In addition to this there is Sky TV and WIFI available. A continental breakfast is also provided in this cost.
Our unit is set back and separate from the house. It has a bathroom with shower, fridge, microwave, toaster and tea and coffee making facilities.
You can sit on the front deck, looking out over our potager garden through to the Richmond Ranges beyond.
It is equipped with food for breakfast; including a choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, bread and a selection of jams & spreads, which will be refreshed on longer stays.
We do cater for gluten free but need to know beforehand.
We encourage guests to access all areas of our property. This includes a common room beside the unit that has a desk and an assortment of books, magazines & games. There is also a small room behind this with two single beds (for those who may want to escape from a snorer :)). Please feel free to pick and use any fruit, vegetables or herbs while here. We also offer the use of our washing mashine for no extra fee.
Interaction with guests
We are very approachable and welcome any queries our guests may have. We are available any times apart from 7.30 am to 4.00 Monday to Friday and within these times can be contact by cellphone.
The Wairau Valley township provides a unique insight in how New Zealand used to be. We have one of very few functioning pubs that date back to the 1800's and a visit is a must. The food here is second to none; including some of the nicest Thai food anywhere.
A 20 minute walk will take you to the infamous Wairau River - an iconic South Island braided river. This river has been an integral part Marlborough's history, with Salmon and Trout aplenty in season.

We love meeting people from around the world and working with them to ensure their stay is enjoyable.
Graeme and I have chosen to settle in the Wairau Valley because we have completely fallen in love with its beauty and tranquillity. We are keen outdoors people, who enoy working on our own property and discovering our lovely countryside.
You will often see us outside, taking in the majestic view over the Richmond Ranges and in particular Mt Richmond and Mt Fishtail that provide us (and others) with many varied photo opportunities.
The things we cant live without are each other and our families, meeting people and entertaining, our gardens, our appreciation of our environment, our vast collections of movies (shared with our guests), a good book, travelling and a good old fashioned humour.
Graeme works in the grape industry and any questions you may have he would be happy to answer.
