so good is Eliza's, that we are returning for our second 10 day+ stay in a couple of weeks. Superb setting, wonderful hostess and very relaxing. We can highly commend Eliza's cottage for anyone seeking a relaxing break. Everything you need is at Eliza's including home cooked delights from Wendy. Just excellent.

A wonderful few days here with our 3 young children who just loved the huge garden, swing, sports equipment and even got into the pool mid October. Wendy was the greatest host with wonderful home baked breads, and breakfasts every morning. Would loved to have spent more nights here than the wonderful 2 that we managed.

“Great holiday home in the heart of Marlborough wine country”

We stayed here for two nights and wished we had booked for longer. From booking (when Wendy gave us a call to discuss the property rather than just email back) through to confirming payment had been received, to a friendly "hello" as we passed her on the way to the property, and throughout the stay - we felt we were very welcome at Eliza's Garden Cottage. Our two kids enjoyed having a bedroom each, and the outdoor games in the shed were well used by them (at least when the weather was fine). The breakfast supplies were wonderful (loved the muesli and Greek yoghurt, yummy preserves, and the bacon was delicious), but it was the special touches that made the difference: fresh baked bread every day, a handwritten welcome note from Wendy, the fire all set and ready to go, and dropping the paper off in the morning. And the cottage was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated, with all the facilities we could ask for. Also a great location, only 5 minutes from town and close to many of the wineries and other attractions in the area. The whole family had a great time, and I'm sure we'll be back next time we stay in Blenheim.

We can't speak highly enough of Eliza's. Wendy is an absolute charming host, the breakfast provisions are absolutely first class and you can't help but relax. The masted bed was an absolute treat and provided such an amazing night's sleep after wine tasting through the day. We would love to come back in summer!

If you are thinking of booking a holiday home in Marlborough then do yourself a favour and stop right here. From the beautifully presented house, to the immaculately kept garden and view over the vineyards to the warm and generous welcome from the proprietor herself, everything about this place is perfect. I only wish we could have stayed longer!
