Kia Ora Everyone!
We have a great little self contained studio in the heart of Renwick, Marlborough.
The studio (which is separate from the main house) features a queen sized bed, sofa (which converts to a sofa bed, suitable for a third person, children 12yrs and under stay free), modern kitchen and bathroom, satellite TV, free WiFi internet, BBQ, large outdoor deck area complete with outdoor bath and Finnish sauna.
With over twenty wineries within 10mins drive, this is an ideal place to stay to relax and explore the Marlborough region.
You will be hosted by Stephen and Melisa, along with our two young daughters. We are both involved in the wine industry and have our own wine company, Eureka Wines. Before you leave make sure you have a glass or two and stock up on a few bottles for your wine collection!
Our place is right in the middle of Renwick, with a supermarket, cafe and two pubs in easy walking distance. Some of the regions best restaurants are close by, including "Herzog", one of New Zealand most highly regarded fine dining restaurants.
We are located only 3 minutes from the airport and airport pick ups are available upon request.

The idea of a garden 'sleep out', doesn't do the accommodation justice. A couple could live there in comfort, and still accommodate an extra member if needed. Pleasure to meet the whole family. Very helpful and relaxed.
The location is only a 10 minute walk from the bus stop. The place was clearly labeled with an airbnb sign. The unit was large, spacious, and well decorated. It has a large tv, wifi, full kitchen and more, but since we were only their for one night we didn't make much use of it. Stephen and Melisa were very welcoming and considerate. We had planned to rent bikes and visit vineyards, but Stephen offered for a similar price to give us a customized wine tour, which we greatly enjoyed. We think this is a great place to stay to explore Malborough wine country!
Stephan and Melisa's place has everything you could need, whether your stay is long or short term. The photos tell it all, and their attention to details and communication put you at ease. Be sure to ask for their recommendations for wine tasting, as their expertise is vast.
Stephen and Melissa ' s place is ideally located for exploring the wineries. Stephen does a very personal and most informative wine tour- we would highly recommend this.
The accommodation provided everything we needed and more.
Stephen was extremely welcoming and helpful.
Thoroughly recommend it.
We had a great time staying in Stephen and Melissa's coach house and will definitely return if we ever find ourselves in Renwick again! The accommodations- full kitchen, laundry, sunny back patio/backyard and comfortable bed- suited our needs perfectly. We didn't get a chance to use the sauna or outdoor tub, but they were both very inviting! The house is only a short walk or bike from town, including the Cork and Keg pub as well as some of the better macro and micro wineries in the area.
Stephen was a great host and we enjoyed the conversation and hearing about his experiences in the wine industry. He was kind enough to share some of the delicious wine that he makes with us, while their adorable girls played in the backyard. If you happen to find yourself in this neck of the woods, this is a great spot!
The cottage was very comfortable! Apple tv, netflix, Washing machine, cooking facilities, sunny terrace, it was all included. Great!! And last but not least a very good bed. Thanks Stephen&Melisa and girls! We'll definately recommand this cottage.
Excellent hosts and great place. Very clean and nice. Exactly as described! Would stay again!
Our overnight stay Stephen and Melissa's apartment was perfect at the end of our holiday. Stephen and his family were friendly and helpful. The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed. The entertainment system was great after a long day....as was the outdoor bath!. Unfortunately we didn't get to use the sauna...maybe another time! Overall it was a wonderfully relaxing stay.
We enjoyed our night at Stephen & Melissa they are really lovely and the studio was perfect with all the necessary comforts. Of course we strongly recommend. thank you very much Caroline & Caroline
Stephen and Melisa went out of their way to ensure that our stay with them was a very enjoyable one. The studio is comfortable and well equipped - particularly the large screen TV and entertainment system. We were particularly grateful for this when the weather wasn't very good for outside pursuits.
We loved finding out about local wines and Stephen helped us enormously with this - we went to the Marlborough Food & Wine festival on his recommendation and had a great day.
We would very much like to return to stay with them again one day.
