We are originally from England but have lived in New Zealand for many years. We have also spent about 18 months in Australia and lived 16 years in the United States, most of that time in Santa Barbara, California. We have done a lot of traveling, including about a year spent (at different times) backpacking in Central and South America. As Airbnb hosts, we are now excited to welcome visitors from all over the world to our beautiful home at the top of New Zealand's South Island.
We live in the heart of Marlborough -- New Zealand’s largest wine-producing province – a few minutes from the area’s main town, Blenheim. Our historic villa is a comfortable blend of old and new: 100-year-old native timbers, brass fittings and leadlight glass alongside private ensuite bedrooms and unlimited, high-speed, fibre-optic Internet access.
Villa Mildura stands in 2.5 acres of land and is surrounded by a large, mature garden regularly visited by such native New Zealand birds as tui and fantails – the latter are cheeky enough to flitter through the house on warm summer afternoons! According to the season, guests are welcome to share our harvest of figs, feijoas, walnuts, lemons, tomatoes, salad greens and more.
To celebrate our close connection to the region’s wine industry, guests staying two nights or longer will also enjoy a complimentary bottle of Marlborough’s world-famous sauvignon blanc.
