About this Holiday House

Originally a shed for supplies and vineyard equipment, Nic's Shed accommodation has had a major makeover to become the sleek elegant house it is today. Architecturally designed for comfort, this self contained house has every modern convenience belying the original intent. Nic's Shed accommodation has 3 large bedrooms with 1 queen, 1 king and 2 single beds. It has 2 bathrooms and a well appointed kitchen the occupants will want for nothing on their holiday in the country. Set in amongst a working family vineyard just 10 minutes from central Blenheim, Nic's Shed is conveniently close to town but has the space and tranquillity of a country retreat. Picton is only half an hour away and the beautiful Marlborough Sounds close to explore. Step directly off the veranda into the beautifully managed vineyard, walk amongst the vines, soak up the sun and enjoy the atmosphere of Marlborough from the comfort of Nic's Shed vineyard accommodation.

What a fabulous place! We stayed here for 2 nights towards the end of a very busy, very active 6 week tour of New Zealand and it was the perfect place to relax and chill out, but it would also have been perfect as a base to explore the Marlborough region. Beautifully furnished and laid out and in a wonderful location, we are really, really hoping to get the chance to come back some time. Thank you Nic for the opportunity to stay.
Response from Owner
Hi, It was so nice to meet you both and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Wasn't it great that the sun came out after all that fog in fact it became very warm. happy travels and return quickly! Regards Nic
Loved this place. Luxurious Citta linen, beautiful furnishings set in an idyllic peaceful location – couldn’t get any better. Perfect for couples, families or as we did, a lovely girls weekend away. It was great to have the fresh milk and breakfast supplies. Thanks Nic for sharing your place. Have recommended this place to everyone I've come into contact with this week!
Wow! What a find. A superb view of the vineyards from each and every window. This really was luxury accommodation with all rooms so beautifully appointed, comfortable and with so much space. (The photos really do not do justice to the enormous amount of space.) The showers are huge! I wish my bathrooms at home were as large. There are excellent storage facilities too and 2 bikes in very good working order.Yes, it may seem fairly isolated to some, but to us, biking and walking amongst the wonderful scenery were serene, and sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine from St Clair vineyard, literally on the doorstep, was divine. All in all, an outstanding stay and by far our favourite accommodation in 6 weeks whilst touring both North and South Islands.
