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.

The 2 resident lawnmower horses were very inquisitive and apparently always hungry. One poked its head into the van to see what I was preparing at the sink. Then there were the chickens and peacocks also getting in on the action.
Sunday morning, The wind still howling, we drove a little further to Cape Farewell lookout, the ...
... cart that takes you to the dropzone. Ahhh. Peter went first and for a man who always has something to say about everything it was pretty hilarious to see him getting let down, held upside down, I asked him how it was and he just had no words ... Hilarious. Apparently he was screaming 'Jesus wept' as he fell which is similarly hilarious. Next up was me and I was thoroughly terrified, they sit you down in the chair that looks like a doctors chair and then you have to waddle your way ...
... we're going to see carols sung at the Cathedral and the two Verena's, who are German, are opening their Christmas presents because it's German tradition to do so on the 24th. On Christmas Day we have been asked by the Verena's to go to a lady named Lisa's house for dinner and we'll spend the rest of the day to suit ourselves. We will try and Skype people on our Christmas Day morning if anyone who reads this wants to be online ...
