Enchanting Historic Home
What a privilege to stay at Hawkesbury Homestead! It is a gorgeous historic home with enormous windows offering views of the glorious grounds, gardens, trees, birds, bunnies and bees. We were all instantly enchanted. There is plenty to do: swim, play tennis, ride bikes, wander the grounds which are like an arboretum, meander down the country road, look at the vineyards and enjoy the gardens. Everything from bikes to a yoga mat to tennis racquets and balls and a fully stocked kitchen are carefully provided by hostess Stacey. Thoughtful touches abound, including fresh flowers throughout, wonderful beds and towels, soaps etc etc. Stying at Hawkesbury Homestead is like heaven on earth - we stayed two nights, and our only improvement would have been to stay much, much longer!
Thank you for your lovely review and I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time at Hawkesbury Homestead Accommodation. It is a special place that we love to share.
I hope to see you again some time.
Kind regards, Stacey
Homestead, quiet, beautiful gardens, very comfortable. Appliances a little old, but this did not detract from the overall fantastic holiday experience. We highly recommend for a group getaway in the beautiful Marlborough region. You won’t be disappointed as my wife wasn’t! Owners lovely!
It was a pleasure having you and the family at Hawkesbury for 10 days. It gives us great delight to have people enjoy and experience the Historic Homestead, and her extensive grounds and gardens, in a way that gives them a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Unique, historic, funky, relaxing and fun
My wife and I stayed at this unique property for four nights in mid-Jan 2018. Hawkesbury Homestead's curb presence is outstanding; it's a beautiful looking home in an idyllic setting with large trees, flowers everywhere, and a vineyard just past the adjoining pasture. The owners are both very engaging and friendly and we enjoyed a glass of their own sauvignon blanc and some cheeses with them right after we arrived. There's a saltwater pool and a tennis court too. Just walking the grounds was very relaxing and my wife and I very much enjoyed sitting on the one of the many decks and just watching the world go by. The house is close to many cellar doors who are more than happy to have a visitor, and we spent a day riding the Hawkesbury Homestead bikes to various wineries.
There are few what I would call indrastructure issues however. First, the beds are just queen sized. My wife and I haven't slept on a queen sized mattress in 20 years and the smaller size took a little getting used to. There is no air conditioning either and only one door and one small window has a screen, meaning bugs will come in, especially if you leave a window open and have a light on at night. It is an old house (built in 1883), and these are some of the issues that our ancestors faced. But this house seems to be pretty well insulated, and we found that we could capture the morning coolness all day and night.
The kitchen works just fine and we grilled some lamb, sausages and pork over three nights after we acquired these items at the local farmers' market. There are tons of things to do nearby too and we found that we ran out of time to get to everything we wanted to see and try.
Looking back I would give our entire Marlborough area experience five stars. We very much enjoyed staying at Hawkesbury Homestead too. My wife and I have rented many homes around the world and found this one to have a very unique personality.
Fabulous House in Heart of Wine Country
This house makes a perfect base for a family or group of friends. It is very comfortably furnished with many elegant details. Bedrooms are luxurious and beds are terrific. Very nice bathrooms. The Kitchen is huge and well-equipped, and very clean.Gardens are fabulous and well-cared-for. Swimming pool and tennis court add entertainment possibilities. If you can tear yourself away from the house, surrounding countryside holds some of the best-known vineyards in New Zealand. Owner is very helpful and insightful guide to the area, and delightful company to boot! My family and I spent Christmas week here and will never forget the fabulous time we had. I would definitely recommend it to any group seeking peace and quiet in the heart of wine country.
