Chris and Janice were fantastic hosts. The accomodation was very well presented. We had a whole bedroom, lounge, bathroom and toilet to ourselves.
They gave lots of local info and places to visit. Their house is amazing. If you like to play tennis then take a racket with you. They have a tennis court. One of the evenings we ate with Chris and Janice's family and friends in their garden in front of a huge open fire and that memory will remain with us for a long time. They are both very sociable hosts. We were very sad to leave and only hope that we can keep in touch. We also wish we stayed over a weekend as Chris has boat and was willing to take us to the waters. I would 100% recommend their place.
This was definitively the best choice we made!!
We were warmly welcomed by Janice and Chris, immediately they made us feel family and at home.
Chris and Janice have left on us an everlasting impression of the hospitality and kindness of the Kiwis.
We cherish this experience and hope this review would help you make up your as to where to stay while in Blenheim.
We were 3 nights in Blenheim by Janice and Chris. It was a pleasure for us to stay at this wonderful place and in that really nice and friendly family. The hospitality were great and we enjoyed the stay very much. It was an unforgetable stay for us!
We had a wonderful stay with Chris & Janice. They've got a beautiful home and they made us feel very welcome.
The standard of accommodation is very high, plus we could use their pool & hot-tub. It was a shame we could only stay one night.
Janice and Chris went out of their way to make our stay wonderful, I only wish we had put aside more time to spend here. Lovely spot, great hosts!
Janice & Chris are superb hosts - they are very welcoming and we felt completely at home in their company. Their accommodation is superb - we had plenty of space which was extremely comfortable and decorated beautifully for Christmas! We would love to stay with Janice & Chris again and would encourage anyone looking for a home away from home in Blenheim to book
Well, there should be a sixth star to add to the maximum of five. And all these would go to Chris and his home. The bedroom,, private living, dining and bathroom rooms were luxurious and very clean. Chris is such a nice and welcoming man that we ate with him and "lived" in his own part of the house and garden. Superb property, in the heart of Marlborough wineries. But the most important is the companionship of Chris. A great guy, helpful, sensitive with whom we spent exceptional moments and had extremely interesting conversations. He naturally and spontaneously offers you to share what he likes. Quite a good cook by the way! It was difficult to leave such a generous man and great property. We sure hope to meet him again. A must and we repeat: 6 stars out of 5 !

We only stayed one night with Janice and Chris, which was a real shame - they were the most fantastic hosts, with a really incredible property too!
We're already looking forward to going back someday :)
Janice and Chris are amazing hosts in Blenheim! They went out of their way to make me comfortable and feel welcomed in their home. I received rides to and from the airport and even got a ride on their boat in the Marlborough Sounds! Their house is beautiful and the brand new guest area is almost like your own private 1 bedroom apartment with a walk-in closet, mini fridge, tea and coffee, water, juice, fruit, and other snacks. There is also an attached bathroom and second room for eating or relaxing and watching some TV. I highly recommend Janice and Chris's house to anyone visiting Blenheim or any of the surrounding areas, as it’s close to everything!
