We loved staying at the Riverside Lodge (3). It is not often that the professional photos do not do a place justice. The lodge was better than the pictures. We could easily have accomodated another family. The children loved it. It has eveything you need. Just stunning.

We spent 4 nights in the Black Barn and will book to return in 3 months despite the journey to get there. The setting was idyllic facing the vineyards, with birdsong and lambs next door. Lovely relaxed American arts and craft decor, with old silky timber floors. Extraordinary housekeeping and attention to detail, that really help one to relax instantly,...

We live permanently on a rural property in Wairarapa, nevertheless, Black Dog Cottage was still a perfect rural retreat for us as a couple over Christmas. The cottage is amazingly well appointed. You could not ask for more equipment in the kitchen; they have thought of everything. In the bar, there is every kind of glass for every varietal of...

This home is so beautiful I'd recommend booking in for extra days to see the sights that Hawkes Bay has to offer as there is a good chance you will want some days lounging around the pool, evenings in front of the out door fire with a glass of Syrah, or just chilling in one of the many window seats,...

From the moment I inquired about the property, Ro and the Sarah(s) could not be more helpful and eager to give us any guidance we needed. Upon arrival we were welcomed like old friends. The home is I what I would call "agro-chic" and no detail was overlooked. The well equipped kitchen would please any gourmet chef (my husband the...

We stayed in Poplars 3 which is absolutely stunning. With the huge North facing window in the lounge room, there was not a single point at which the view wasn't breathtaking.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Black Barn Vineyards in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand offers fourteen unique properties for nightly rental. Each is fully self contained and exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. Each is selected for its prime location, unique character and original style. They are all luxuriously appointed to reflect their individual character with the very best in furnishings, bedding, fabrics, kitchenware and amenities. From an eight bedroom luxury retreat to a two bedroom turn-of-the-century cottage in the heart of the vineyard, for a truly unique holiday experience, these properties are recognised as amongst the very best available in New Zealand. As we do not wholesale or advertise our properties all bookings are directly with the winery. Therefore you will not find us in travel shops or discount brochures and 80% of our guests are either repeat visitors or personal recommendations through word of mouth. So which-ever one you choose, you can be assured of a discrete, private, luxurious stay. ... more   less
