Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous house This property was ideal for our family stay, our children and grandchildren found this area to be peaceful and relaxing. Away from the traffic of Pokolbin we visited Margans and Nightingale wineries. Cows & horses in the adjoining paddock provided a perfect country backdrop for our family get together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just lovely Maranda was lovely. Cosy warm with the fireplace and everything you could need.electronically and in the kitchen. Peaceful and relaxing. Only suggestion is that you add a how to use the oven page in the book, had the brain going for a while but we figured it out. We will definitely come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Property! This property was great and exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival we were greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine, coffee and Pukara Estate Olive Oil! The property itself actually looks nicer in real life than it does in the pictures. There is so much room throughout the place and a really nice fireplace. Also to note, the Jacuzzi was always hot for the whole duration of the stay which was awesome. The location itself is a little bit out of the way from the Hunter - about a 30 min drive. However the backdrop of the estate is amazing. Beautiful country scenery. Overall I'd definitely recommend this place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful homestead Lovely place to visit, house was beautiful and well equipped. Would be improved if there were more shade options outside to enjoy it during the hot summer months.
