Amazing accomodation for our short stay in Marlborough. We stayed in the cottage which was clean, spacious and very warm-welcoming. The cottage sits right behind their vineyard which has stunning views. The location itself was perfect for our wine tour plans as it was close enough to be picked up from our front door! Overall it is a perfect stay for anyone wine and farm lovers. Jen and Dion were lovely too! Thanks again.

This is the best airbnb experience I have had. We stayed two nights - on the first day we relaxed in the cottage which had lovely views over the vineyard and mountains. The cottage was well equipped and the perfect space to enjoy Marlborough. We enjoyed a drink with Jen and Dion on the Friday. Their hospitality throughout was great and it was great to learn a bit more on the estate. The wine grown from the estate was delicious. Would recommended this to anyone.

We loved the vineyard cottage! Waking up next to the vineyards with sheep grazing...and that stunning mountain view...perfect. The cottage itself is perfectly appointed and cozy with a great kitchen. I highly recommend staying here! Can't wait to come back.

We had an amazing time staying at Jen & Dion's charming little cottage. The view was amazing and the wine was fantastic.

The cottage was perfect with a well supplied kitchen, lovely shower with amazing water pressure, and the heater was quite hot during the cold nights. The setting was beautiful in the wine country and quite beautiful even during winter when the grape vines are not vivid green. We can only imagine how much more beautiful the setting is in summer. My husband and I were not able to meet Jen and Dion since they were on holiday, but their parents were more than helpful and kind. We would definitely stay at the lovely cottage again, since it met all of our needs and was also quite romantic. Thank you so much for the fabulous stay!
