We stayed with John & Ruth for 2 nights & had a great stay. They were there to welcome us & then left us to it but were just next door if we needed anything. The apartment was plenty big enough for us and a toddler & everything was clean & new. The town centre was a 30 minute walk away & it was a great base for touring the wine region.

Ruth looked after us and gave us a great recommendation for Maruia springs on the way to Hamner. Lovely apartment and well appointed with everything you need. But a good walk into town.

We had a lovely and relaxing stay here. The place was very well presented and clean. Quiet street with a wonderful view of fruit trees and the walnut tree from the balcony. Very close to town! Ruth and John were so lovely and greeted us on arrival and departure. We were given a. At of their fresh walnuts and Ruth had made shortbread. Would definitely stay again.

John & Ruth are both fantastic hosts so welcoming! The apartment is absolutely beautiful and the ideal place to relax after sampling the local vineyards! Don't hesitate booking for a second because believe me you won't regret it! If we return to New Zealand we will certainly be back!

We stayed for two nights in John and Ruth's apartment and we absolutely loved it! We instantly felt at home and we even had some delicious homemade shortbread and walnuts to enjoy when we arrived! The apartment is spacious, clean and comfortable and we were able to prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen. John and Ruth always communicated politely. We would definitely recommend their place and hope to stay again in the future.

Great space for our few days in Blenheim. Beautiful grounds and super friendly hosts. Quick and easy walk into town and a lovely farmers market just round the corner on Sundays :)

Great little apartment with great location walking distance from centre of town. Very clean and tons of light! John and Ruth extremely kind and good hosts. Had a bit of trouble the night before with the ferry crossing and they were extremely generous and accommodating with our situation. Highly recommend if staying in Blenheim.
