If there was ever a spacious and cosy home away from home where your furry four-legged family members were as welcome as the rest, it’s this one. Welcome to The Red House!

This traditional home is just the place to put your feet up and relax on your next getaway to the Marlborough region. With plenty of space both inside and out, The Red House is drenched in sunshine all day long.

Put the tele on and stretch out on one of the comfy couches in the living room, or pop yourself at the picnic table with a coffee, while you cheer for your favourite team in the family backyard cricket game.

On your summer holiday, keep things cool by opening up the huge living room doors, and in winter spark up the fireplace to create a cosy home. That warmth carries right through to the fully equipped kitchen, and on to the spacious bedrooms.

Able to sleep six guests comfortably, The Red House has queen and king single bed options. There’s also a roll away bed and port-a-cot for the little family members, and let’s not forget your pets who have their own bed in the light and bright sunroom, or the kennel outside.

Venture out into the expansive, fully fenced outdoor recreation area here at The Red House and pick some veges from the garden. Then, throw them on the BBQ and dine alfresco on the sheltered deck.

With plenty of private parking, there’s even space to bring your boat here to The Red House if you like, and with so much to explore right on your doorstep you should definitely pack the bikes - overnight you can store them in the garage!

The central location of The Red House, just four minutes drive from town, makes it an ideal spot to enjoy the eateries and shops Blenheim has to offer. It’s also just six minutes drive to the fantastic Omaka Aviation Heritage Museum and the Wither Hills Cellar Door and Restaurant.

Closer to home, you’re only a two minute walk from the Speights Alehouse, five minutes from Taylor River with its dog exercise park, and there’s also local cafes and the Springlands supermarket a short stroll away.

Where your pets are welcome as part of the family; this is The Red House.

Awesome family house close to the CBD. Perfect amount of space for a dog and family. Well looked after.

Clean and well appointed. Friendly service. Highly recommended.

Stayed June 2021

The house was perfect! Fully fenced and so good that the dogs were allowed inside. Definitely keen to stay again in the future

Stayed May 2021

The Red House was generally very comfortable, warm, clean & tidy. It had everything any group or family would require for a break away. Beds were comfortable with the exception of one queen bed that was too soft. There were some treats & milk left in the fridge & 5 fresh eggs - this was a lovely touch that was much appreciated. However, when booking check the prices carefully as there are additional costs (like cleaning, linen etc) that can escalate the overall cost substantially.
