Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property - recommended Stayed for a Christmas in July weekend away with 8 adults, 2 children and a dog. The house was excellent and in a beautiful location. Large sized communal kitchen and dining area for cooking up and enjoying a big feast... with recent wine purchases of course! Nice lounge for chilling out in front of the wood burning fire. Good sized cozy bedrooms with enough bathrooms to keep everyone happy, and a beautiful view across a kangaroo filled valley. Already thinking of booking another stay in the warmer months to make use of the pool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic base for a family break. We stayed here with relatives visiting from the UK. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. We were woken by our children at 6am - excitedly telling us about the kangaroos outside their window! I hope to stay there again on a future trip to the Hunter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kookaburra hideaway - did not see any kookaburras ( hiding) Lovely setting, spacious relaxing atmosphere Good information about property. Cleanliness of bathroom floors, wooden floors and under wooden furniture very dirty and disappointing for a property with this price range . Apart from dirty floors we had a wonderful time .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The house was just perfect for a large group. Perfect that each room had it's own bathroom, especially for a group this size.
