Step into Kiwiesque and into the serene, romantic ambience of the preeminent vineyard accommodation in Hawkes Bay on the North Island of New Zealand. Nestled within the picturesque Linden Estate Vineyard, in the heart of the Esk Valley wine-growing region,Â thisÂ luxury accommodationÂ offers the perfect setting for indulging in the good life.
To start with, Kiwiesque provides the perfect backdrop for a tranquil getaway in the country. Rows of perfectly lined Albarino and Pinot Gris grape vines surround the property. And in the distance, the lush, verdant hills and mountains are visible from any of the rooms.
The architecture, though not out of this world, is striking and unique. It is inspired from the red corrugated Van Der Linden wool shed and reminiscent of countryside farmhouses, only more refined and grander in scale. Here, comfort is king and space is given in spades. This is evident in the interiors that take on a contemporary approach with high ceilings and large windows that let in lots of natural light.
The Main House features aÂ spacious central lounge and dining room where guests can converge and mingle. There is a sliding door that leads to a beautiful sweeping deck and outdoor dining area, as well as a barbecue and luxurious jacuzzi spa. A large lapÂ pool with unobstructed views of the vineyards is also available for guest enjoyment.
This expansive property also provides a number of different accommodation options that can range from a romantic couple’s getaway to a funÂ gathering with a group of family or friends.Â And because there is a strictly limited number guests at any one time, privacy and seclusion is guaranteed.
