A group of friends and myself stayed at Wendy's guest house over a long weekend and it was fabulous! Perfect location and place to stay in the area and Wendy was a fantastic host, fresh bread and papers every morning were a lovely touch! Would totally recommend to all! Renee

“A peaceful retreat in the heart of New Zealand's wine country”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2013

While we have lived in New Zealand previously for 12 years and had been to Blenheim previously it was great working with Wendy from the start. She new that we were bringing a young couple with us to show them the wineries and as we got closer to the date she emailed me directions and things to see before coming to Blenheim. Wendy is an "earth" mother. She prepared fresh bread and home made jams and yogurts daily. She even brought us the local paper. Upon arrival she gave us a bottle of Sav Blanc made from the grapes in her vineyard. The Cottage is in a vineyard in the heart of wine country with easy access to all wineries and the town. It was a great experience as we "treated" our son and daughter in law to the exerience of a lifetime that they will never forget. Great job Wendy,

“Exceeded all expectations!”

Can't rate this place highly enough- very tastefully decorated and well outfitted with everything to make for a very comfortable stay. Setting is peaceful and outlook over the vines just beautiful. All the little extras Wendy provides- daily newspaper, gourmet provisions for breakfast, home grown produce just adds to the wonderful experience of staying here. We will be back!

Response from the owner Thank you for this Di. It was lovely having you both at Eliza's - and I just so enjoyed the way you explored the district but also indulged in some r and r at Eliza's and especial thanks to Al for helping me sort out those pesky technical problems.......... I hope you do come back. W

“delightful cottage”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2013

On arrival at Eliza's cottage we were greeted with a warm welcome note and a fridge full of goodies including a nice bottle of wine. We stayed for 3 nights and each day our host presented us with a lovely home-made loaf of bread - delicious. The cottage is tastefully decorated and situated in a beautiful garden that even has a swimming pool. Located fairly central to the Maryborough Sounds area. Our host was very helpful and furnished all our needs. We would certainly have no hesitation to stay again at Eliza's cottage on a return visit to the South Island of New Zealand.

Response from the owner Thank you for this Pat - it was lovely meeting you all; your delightfully funny husband Les and your charming friends Anne and Simon. Very glad we eventually found Simon's address book and hopefully it is safely back in England. I do hope you will all come back some day. Best wishes Wendy

“Fantastic place”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2012

We had a great time at Eliza's Cottage. The breakfast supplies was great and having the fresh bread delivered everyday was a real treat. A really wonderful and homely place. Awesome views overlooking the gardens and vineyard and great mountain views as well. I want to go back in summertime so that I can try the many different fruit trees that they have.

Response from the owner A belated response - because I'm technologically challenged and have only just worked out how to do this - but you were lovely guests and left everything immaculatey in my fantasy space. I hope you will come back someday.......... W xxxx

“A truly relaxing break”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2012

Our stay at Elizas was more relaxing than any other break away we have had over the last 10 years. It was quiet, spacious, clean and tidy. Wendy delivered on every level and went above and beyond with her personal touches, her level of passion and commitment to our enjoyment evident from the moment we walked in the house. The location was perfect for where we needed to be and with a 15wk old baby who had a double ear infection, perfect with no neighbours to bother (only the sheep!) Our Son learnt to ride his two wheeler on the lawn and even got so bold as to try the quiet road. We can't think of one improvement as it was perfect and we can't wait to go back. We are even thinking of getting a bed just like the master bedroom it was unreal how comfortable it was!!

Response from the owner A very late response but I'm slow in working out all these technical things - you were the most understanding guests (!!!!) and I do truly hope we will see you again. W xxxxx

High standard accommodation, outstanding breakfast comfortable beds quality bedding, plenty of hot water, Beautiful peaceful surroundings. Short drive to Blenheim, even the fire was laid ready to light.

“Totally awesome stay at Eliza's Garden Cottage!!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2012

Eliza's Garden Cottage was simply the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in the South Island!! The ease of booking was great & communication was excellent. The gourmet breakfast and fresh bread were superb!! The fresh flowers and candles were very special touches by Wendy our Host. The queen bed was so comfortable and warm especially in the middle of Winter. The Open Fire was very welcome for warmth during a wet/cold few days. The location and setting of Eliza's was fantastic, situated right next to the Vineyard with lovely views.

“Everything we could want!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2012

The house was presented beautifully inside, with a fire already lit to welcome us. The portacot was made up and soft toys placed on the children's beds. The fridge and fruit bowl were full with lovely local produce. Toys had been provided for our preschoolers and the back section was huge and great for running around on. The house was decorated with beautiful taste and it was lovely to be in. Everything was great.

“We relaxed in lovely rural surroundings where every need was tho”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2012

Our family, including grandchildren, felt very much at home. The personal touches of equipment for small children, as well as games for older ones, a wonderfully stocked frig,fresh home-baked bread, wood ready for the fire, but a heat-pump as well, plenty of towels for the pool, and Wendy's immediate response to any queries, made them very special holidays. We have been twice and will come again. Blenheim is only 5 minutes away, but the large tree-edged lawn and surrounding vines give a lovely outlook & privacy.
