We booked to stay with a friend of a friend. Due to a mix up with dates our friend had double booked but managed to get us accommodation at Antares Homestay. We were not disappointed as Antares is a most delightful place in a beautiful location. Mandy & Patrick couldn't have been more helpful, nothing was too much, Mandy booked...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and used the home stay for our wedding. We booked one apartment for the groomsman, and the other garden room for the bridal party. This worked perfectly. Mandy and Patrick are lovely people who are very accommodating. They tried very hard to help our ceremony run smoothly and helped us in...

What started out as a much awaited stay in a serene & peaceful environment got marred by the malfunctioning washing machine and inconsistent drying cycle which saps one's energy when one have to make frequent visits to see if clothes are done..also the existing washing facility is a shared facility between guest in the Loft or Apt with balcony &...

Dear Yogimano Thank you for writing your review - sadly, I feel, whatever we offered you for your stay, was never going to satisfy you - we tried so hard to accommodate your requests. With regards to the laundry facilities we offered you, this was only as a longer stay in that apartment - we explained a few times to...

We stayed in the Ashwell apartment which was spacious, comfortable with very well appointed bathrooms and kitchen. We'd reserved the whole apartment so had loads of space for 2 of us, but it will easily accommodate 2 couples. Great to have a washing machine after travelling around for a week! Mandy and Patrick gave us a warm welcome and some...

We booked a two-night stay in this “B&B” during a one week period when we were booking nightly stays for a six-week trip to New Zealand. Unfortunately, in our haste we booked a two-bedroom accommodation for a couple – thinking that was the only accommodation available. While this may have been an (expensive) oversight, what the facility offers is far...

Thank you for taking time to review your stay - sorry you did not enjoy your time with us. The booking you made was for the Ashwell apartment ( apartment with garden views) - when the whole apartment is booked by a guest, as by you, then at NO time do we let out the other bedroom to anyone else...

We stayed in the studio apartment for one night. We enjoyed a very warm welcome from Mandy who gave us a tour of the property, hot tub, swimming pool etc. We understand that the studio was completed in December 2015 and is modern and well appointed with all mod cons and the ingredients provided to make our own breakfast. It...

This is a brilliant place to stay. The location almost opposite Hans Herzog and 10 minutes from Renwick is ideal and there is a lovely (flat) walk from the homestay to the banks of the Wairau river on your doorstep. The views across the vineyards are spectacular too, as is the avenue lined with olive trees and citrus leading the...

The only problem with our stay in Antares was that we were only there for one night. It's not cheap, but then nothing in this area is. The owners are charming, and offer a really warm welcome. We were in the self-contained two bedroom section, which is really well furnished and full of books, board games - and even umbrellas...

What was good? We stayed in the "Loft" which had a very comfortable bed, was very private and had good facilities. The owners were very friendly and we're happy to assist with bookings and other advice. Improvements? Whilst the kitchen was well set up, a dishwasher would be a useful addition.

We (like many others) picked Antares because we could walk to Hans Herzog. It was a wonderfully comfortable, relaxing place to stay. The location, pool, hot tub and rooms were superb & everything I could think of was provided (pool towels, robes, coffee, etc). Recommended.
