1. Copper beech House

As a hostel with that “home away from home” feeling, no wonder this a favourite for long-term stay. (And let’s be honest, that’s what most of us will be doing in the picking season). Colourful decor, a cosy living room with guitars, and a huge garden – it’s a great place to hang out after hard day’s work on the vineyards.

3. The Grapevine

Aptly named, The Grapevine is popular with seasonal workers and short-term stays alike. This old-style villa has great views of the Opawa River on its decking area – a great place to have a glass of Marlborough wine at the end of the day (if you’re not sick of the sight of it).
