Stayed March 2022

Lovely property in a stunning location and very well equipped with everything that you need

Stayed March 2022

Beautiful house with so much space. Gardens were safe and fun for the kids to play! Everyone had their own space and there was just so much to do inside and outside the property. We were there for some wine tastings and this was exactly where we needed to stay to make it the most memory wine tasting get away we could have ever imagined!

Stayed February 2022

Rapaura Magic holiday home was a great space and perfect location for our group. We loved it so much we’ve already booked again for next year. If you want help getting around the area Andy and the team at Explore Marlborough are your one stop shop with outstanding customer service.

Stayed January 2022

This property is absolutely beautiful. Huge bedrooms and three bathrooms, three lounges, a delight in every way. Super conveniently located right opposite No 1 winery and The Vines, where we hired our bikes for the wine tour. Will definitely come again...

Stayed December 2021

Great house and surroundings, perfect for large group of friends. Would definitely love to come back and stay.

Stayed August 2021

An absolutely stunning property for a group stay. Can't fault it. We loved our stay.

Stayed June 2021

A great house which we and our friends really enjoyed staying in - in fact they want to go back there, Although a little way out of Blenheim it was still very convenient to us - we were on a wine club trip. Everything was just as we expected - a warm tidy house and very reasonably priced.

Stayed May 2021

It’s really worth to stay!

Stayed May 2021

The house was in a great location, warm and modern and clean, excellent size rooms and living areas. We had a great stay and would highly recommend.

Stayed April 2021

The ideal setting for a quite and relaxing stay on a vineyard in the hub of New Zealand's finest wine growing region. The modern spaceous 6 bedroom home is perfect for large families or groups, with great entertaining indoor and outdoor flow. You could not ask for more.

Stayed April 2021

Excellent Bach/House for a big Family or extended Family or a group of friends or 5 couples. Very central to many wineries. Big lawn away from neighbours so very private! Out look to Vines. Fantastic thank you!

Stayed January 2021

A very spacious property, located in a beautiful vineyard. Well appointed and good location comparatively close to vineyards; we could walk/bike to tastings and Renwick supermarket. The place was very hot; there was no air condition, no fans and no fly screens. We could not even keep the doors and windows open without insects invading. Ants made their way into a bedroom and were a nuisance. Plenty of fly spray was provided, so they could be dealt with in the short term. Some slow acting poison would provide a longer term solution. The BBQ was caked in fat and soot and had not been cleaned. A spare gas bottle was provided though. The curtains are not block-out curtains, so you wake with the sun and the birdsong. A bottle of wine from the vineyard was provided as welcome - it is very good wine, thoroughly enjoyable.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review, Thomas! We're glad you enjoyed this property's amazing location and amenities. We appreciate your recommendations around cooling and fly screens and will work on these with the property owners. We're sorry to hear the BBQ wasn't up to standard and have since addressed this.

Stayed December 2020

Great stay at this amazing property.

Stayed November 2020

Wow what a wonderful property! We had the pleasure of staying for a long weekend and this property exceeded our expectations. Situated amongst the picturesque Marlborough vineyard, it is a relaxing, beautiful, private setting in the perfect location for exploring the nearby vineyards. The property is the perfect size for groups or families with generous sized rooms and living areas. The house had everything that we could possibly need, was very clean and the manager was so welcoming and accommodating, even leaving a bottle of the owners wine for us upon arrival! Such a lovely touch and was very appreciated! We absolutely loved our stay and would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Marlborough area!

Stayed October 2020

Superb family home for our family groups - great value for a great property

Stayed February 2020

This is an extremely comfortable and spacious property perfectly situated close to several wineries and close to main routes. Set in a beautiful and peaceful garden right next to the vines. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property, especially suited for larger family groups.

Stayed January 2020

Thanks for a great stay- we all really enjoyed it and has a stunning surrounding.

Stayed November 2019

The house was exactly as described. Plenty of space, beautiful setting, comfy beds, and clean. We loved our stay and would love to come back one day.

Stayed January 2019

Great house great location if you want some quiet time

Stayed December 2018

We had a very relaxing stay at this beautiful home. Plenty of room (we also rented the studio apartment) for two families. Clean, spacious and comfortable. The house is 10-15 min from Blenheim, so you need your own transportation. There are wineries/tasting rooms and a cafe within walking distance. The local Bachcare manager was very helpful (put away groceries we had delivered to the house, addressed an electrical problem, assisted with our late arrival due to a flight delay). We stayed during the Christmas break. No activity in the adjacent vineyard, so very quiet and peaceful. Price was very reasonable for 8 people. Would stay there again and would recommend.

Stayed November 2018

Superb property. Great setting. Everything there including some welcome beers and bottle of wine.

Stayed October 2018

Fabulous holiday home. Had a brilliant time. House has everything you need. We were here during a quiet season. I can imagine it could get noisy during harvest.

Stayed October 2018

This bach is the dream for a family holiday. We are a party of 6 adults, and have plenty of space to lounge around the house to relax and have our private space when we need to. Very tidy and clean, and has everything to make it a very comfortable stay.
