TravelPod Member ReviewsVintners Retreat Blenheim
Nice 2 bedroom bungalow with lots of space. It is located a bit out of Blenheim but very handy for a few wineries. It has all the facilities you could need so we ate in mostly. Only down sides would be it is on the main road (SH6) so a bit noisy plus you have to drive if you want to eat out.

Then Roast Lamb ,with veggies and salad . The Lamb was so tender and we all ate too much. After a rest, it's a trip to the beach for a swim in the sea Back home to unwind and watch ...
... whale dipped under. After a few minutes of waiting for it to resurface the crew gave up and we headed back down below. The seas were pretty rough so while traveling we were confined to the enclosed seating area. We were all hoping that the last quick glimpse wasn't going to be the only one of the day. To our surprise we did not sail far from the main land. We learned later that the Hope Fault (between the Australian and Pacific plates) ...
