Our guests enjoy exclusive access to the pool, the garden, the outdoor games, bikes and 100 acres of farm and vineyard.

We live 500 metres down the road which allows our guests privacy but we are around if they need advice, farm and garden tours etc.

Our neighbourhood is distinctly rural with stunning views but it is only 5 minutes drive from central Blenheim and all it's amenities. We also have a wonderful pub - The Grovetown Country Hotel - on our doorstep ie strolling distance. They have a great selection of craft beers and they also provide delicious meals.

Everything was absolutely impeccable at Wendy`s place. The cottage is beautiful, authentic, well appointed and the garden is the best private garden I have seen in a long time. The location right in vineyard is both scenic and quiet. However what made the stay exceptional is Wendy`s touch. We were welcomed by a large basket of fresh fruits and just baked bread that made us feel good immediately despite the so-so weather. The cottage itself is well laid out with ample space to eat and relax. The fireplace works very well so we spent most of the time in the living room enjoying its warmth and view of the surroundings. I will definitely recommend the lace to anyone I know who wants to visit Marlborough

Eliza's is a slice of heaven and my new happy place!! Wendy was exceptionally welcoming with tremendous attention to detail. The house was larger than expected based on the photos and all the little extras Wendy provided were amazing!!! I will definitely be returning to stay again and would recommend it to everyone for a wonderful experience.

Wow! That sums up our stay, our host Wendy, her gorgeous house, fabulous garden were magic. The breakfast provisions were carefully thought out and no budget product insight. Quality yogurt, peanut butter, Lewis Road butter, home made bread, fresh local eggs, great fruit bowl. Just exquisite. Great bedding, towels etc! Everything is thought out. I normally expect mismatching glasses/plates etc but not here. It's worth every cent to stay here. I just wish we stayed longer. The garden is immaculate with herbs, beautiful flowers, fruit trees etc. Thank Wendy for going above and beyond with our stay especially your extra service on Sunday morning. Can we stay again?

Perfection!! My partner and I were visiting NZ from Aus and it happened to be our anniversary- little did we know Wendy and my mother in law in Scotland had arranged gifts, fresh flowers, wine, cupcakes and more on our arrival! Wendy did all the running around and making sure it was a surprise which was fantastic! The location is brilliant, didn't want to leave the amazing garden! Very clean, huge choice of DVDs and breakfast was plentiful. Never felt a more comfortable bed either, was like sleeping on a cloud! Can't thank you enough Wendy for everything extra you did, looking forward to coming back again! :-) if you ever come to Melbourne please get in touch!

Eliza's Garden Cottage was one of the best places I have stayed in during my time in New Zealand. It was warm, welcoming and just so cosy. The breakfast treats supplied were delicious, with fresh baked bread and farm eggs such a nice touch. The garden and view of the vineyard is so relaxing we did not want to leave. I'll be back for sure.

I'm the owner of the vineyard that surrounds Eliza's and live in the neighbouring homestead, Welton House. We grow Sauvignon Blanc grapes for Wither Hills and Pernod Ricard.

One of my greatest passions is gardening and together with my head gardener, Nic, we look after 3 acres of garden. The Welton House garden features in the annual Garden Marlborough festival in November.
