About Wendy Palmer
We live next door in the original century plus old farmhouse now restored for modern life which is surrounded by a 3 acre garden accredited as one of national significance by the New Zealand Gardens Trust. Our main business is growing grapes but we love the happy positive energy our holidaying visitors bring to the farm.
Wendy Palmer purchased this House in 2011
Why Wendy Palmer chose Blenheim
We bought the next door farm and inherited a house that had been built for the granddaughter of the couple that had built our house. This new house had an extensive garden that needed some renovating and a charming pool. It was just perfect for a holiday home. Over the years I have stayed in many holiday homes in many parts of the world and I have become rather opinionated about what makes this accommodation work well for the holidaymaker. It was great fun putting these ideas into action and creating my dream holiday home. However, uniquely, I have never stayed in my dream holiday home!
What makes this House unique
We chose Marlborough to be our forever home nearly 2 decades ago. It has a great sunny climate and is filled with every outdoor activity imaginable which is important to us. There are stunning views in Marlborough and Eliza's has more than its fair share. The dramatic sunsets over the Richmond Ranges are a nightly pleasure.

Highly recommended - fantastic!!
What a find. We almost don't want to share this little gem in case it gets too popular as we will definitely stay here again. The extras like the freshly baked artisan bread, neighbourhood eggs, homemade jams etc etc... just add to the incredible experience and value. The gardens and view.. glorious and your host makes you feel like its your home. Its got everything and its worth every cent. Don't hesitate to stay here, you won't regret it. :)
Thank you for being brilliant guests. It was lovely meeting you both and rest assured when you return you will not find any more of those explosive coffee capsules again! Hopefully will see you soon.
Amazing Cottage in the Heart of Wine Country
A really beautiful and well maintained cottage with some exceptional personal touches, such as fresh baked bread, a bottle of wine and newspaper for when you arrive. An amazing garden to watch the sunset over the vineyards. We took our dog for a sunrise walk through the vineyards as well.
The cottage is easy to find with easy access to the Picton Ferry and the wineries of Blenheim. As we loaded the car and pulled away my wife said "you know we are coming back."
Thank you Chris!
The house was beautiful. We loved it
It was great, worth every penny. I would highly recommend
Charming Light filled apartment in the heart of Lyttleton.
We loved our stay here. The very tasteful apartment has everything you need with fantastic views of both the port and the hills. With great cafes and restaurants literally on our doorstep we loved experiencing the youthful vibe of this lovely part of Christchurch. Liam is a thoughtful host. It’s a very high recommendation from us.
I have an extensive file on Things to in Marlborough which I love sharing - just ask.
