Julie & Jeremy were amazing hosts. Their Airbnb is in the BEST LOCATION!! It was a slice of heaven to see the sea, hear the waves and watch the SUNRISE.... Truly a spectacular event. We were in Blenheim for the St Clair 1/2 Marathon and Julie made her spa pool available for us to soak in afterwards. Thank You!. The quality linen and amazing queen bed was fantastic..... Can't say enough about this amazing Airbnb experience- you will have to come and try it yourself.

Beyond in love with this little slice of heaven and my group already talks of returning for a longer stay. If you're looking for a quiet getaway look no further! You're about 15 minutes away from groceries, amenities and wine country, but that's what's great about it; close enough but far away. We never met Jeremy but Julie greeted us with warm hugs after an unusually late arrival, and helped us with laundry the next day. She's an absolute gem. The house is well appointed with really comfy warm beds and just enough cooking utensils to make a nice meal. But the best part is the sunroom, my favorite spot in the whole house. We were all charmed and can't wait to come back for a longer stretch.

Absolutely amazing place, and Julie is incredibly kind. Well stocked and well decorated, beautiful views, and such a secluded feel although it's not too far to drive into town for the shops. Wish we had a longer stay!

This place is fantastic! Amazing ocean views from the living space, bedroom and especially the window seat. We fell asleep to the sound of the waves every night. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, with creative touches and so comfortable. Julie and Jeremy have provided everything you need for a really enjoyable stay.
