Hawkesbury Homestead has stood overlooking the Hawkesbury Valley for 136 years, watching the changes a century of time has created. Set on 13 acres, your privacy is assured. Surrounded by vineyards and lovely gardens the Homestead exudes historic ambiance. Enjoy your own private swimming pool, tennis court, fruit trees and large country kitchen. Close to town, restaurants, wineries, and golf courses. A great base for 4-10 days to explore Marlborough and the Sounds, Nelson and Kaikoura.

The space
The Homestead has been lovingly restored with country charm and can be booked for Villa rental. Hawkesbury is a two storied semi Georgian Villa, with large rooms and high ceilings. There is the Grand master bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, plus large lounge, laundry, dining room and kitchen. Upstairs has 4 other bedrooms and 3 bathrooms plus an outdoor covered veranda. There is a full size country kitchen that is well stocked for your convenience and the dining area has a large table that can seat 10. . There is plenty of covered outdoor dining space as well. Enjoy sitting on the rose drapped back veranda, around the oval table, overlooking the pool and court yard, sipping a local Sauvignon Blanc Wine in the afternoon sun. The upstairs veranda is also a lovely place to watch the moon rise or gaze at the stars that shine so bright when there are no city light pollution. Go biking through the vineyards, stroll up the valley past the 1840's Cob cottage, play tennis, enjoy a swim or just RELAX! The choice is yours.

Guest access
The Homestead grounds, gardens, swimming pool and tennis court are all for you to enjoy.
There is a two story barn located at the back of the property that guests do not have access too.

Other things to note
There are 4 bicycles, for cycling through the vineyards. There is ample off road parking. In the right season there are apricots, pears, apples, grapefruit and lemons available to pick.

Location

Hawkesbury, Marlborough, New Zealand

Hawkesbury is located in a beautiful rural valley with no through roads, i.e. there is only local traffic. The rural environment has a focus on viticulture, but there are also sheep, cattle and deer farms nearby. No city noise but you will hear lambs bleating in springtime.
Hawkesbury is one of the oldest homesteads in Marlborough, with a unique history. Walk out the gate, cross the little one way bridge and you will find a cob cottage, circa 1840, that was originally part of the large landholding that was the Hawkesbury Estate.

I am a retired Doctor who loves hosting guests. The Homestead is perfect for that. My husband and I love making Hawkesbury and her extensive beautiful grounds available to people from all over the world to enjoy. It is a very special place. As you can tell from the photo's I love gardening and tennis.

During your stay
My husband and I joined airbnb years ago to share our Historic Homestead with people from all over the world. We travel extensively ourselves, now we are retired, and have great pleasure helping individuals and families enjoy time in Marlborough and NZ. We like to meet and greet all our guests personally and show them around the Homestead, discuss its history if they are interested and talk about all the things to do in Marlborough and the surrounding districts. We then leave guests to enjoy all Hawkesbury and Marlborough has to offer, but we are only a phone call away.
