Pitalpa Views - is a stunning rural retreat in the heart of the Hunter Valley's wine region that is ten minutes drive from everywhere: including the Pokolbin vineyards, golf, restaurants, ballooning, concert venues, markets and more...

Pitalpa is a modern and luxurious 4 bedroom home, set on 4.5 picturesque acres in the heart of the Hunter Valley wine region only 2 minutes from the heritage town of Branxton. The house sleeps up to 8 adults, but we take bookings for less than 6 adults and offer lower rates if you only require the use of one, two or three of the 4 bedrooms in the house.

You'll enjoy the peace and beauty of the rural views, but be within walking distance of a township with everything you need including a supermarket, chemist, hotel, bottle shop, takeaway - even a cheap and cheerful 9 hole golf course.

The house is meticulously appointed with a beautiful gourmet gas kitchen, Nespresso machine, log fireplace, huge covered entertaining deck, gas Beefeater BBQ, media room with Foxtel and best of all 180 degree north facing view of the sweeping rural acres, the Royal Ranges and Barrington Tops National Park. The sunrises and sunsets are divine.

If you want to take a walk in the paddocks, gumboots are supplied for our guests.

For the gourmet enthusiast, the kitchen has every appliance you could ever need, including a gas cooktop, oven, dishwasher, microwave, slow cooker/crock pot, food processor, rice cooker, mix master, cake tins, pizza trays and more.

The bedrooms are large all appointed with Sheridan linen and towels.

The Master suite has a super king sized bed, ensuite with double basin, rain shower and walk in robe. It also has its own private balcony with northerly views.

The queen sized room are generous. One has lovely views and the other is better for those who like to sleep late.

The 'kids room' as it is affectionately known, has two king single beds. .

We have a full 3G mobile coverage, a beautiful work desk and an Air Drop printer/scanner/copier if your work life balance - isn't quite as balanced as you'd like it to be...

Pitalpa is an easy 120 minute drive from Sydney's CBD via that M1 and the new Hunter Valley Expressway. Take the Branxton exit on the Hunter Valley Express Way and you are less than 2 minutes from Pitalpa.

From the minute you step inside the house, you will be mesmerised by the north facing views of the Royal Ranges and Barrington Tops. Make sure that you arrive in time for sunset so that you can relax on the expansive deck with your favourite glass of wine. Alternatively, soak in the view from the bath tub...

If you prefer to head out to dinner, the local pub - the Federal Hotel in Branxton is a wonderful historic hotel with private dining rooms, generous gourmet meals, a pizza bar and importantly, a courtesy bus - if you don't feel like walking or driving the very short distance home.

After dinner, you can retire to watch a movie or your favourite sporting match in Pitalpa's media room fitted with a 65cm HDTV, Foxtel, electric leather recliners and an extensive DVD library.

If you decide to get up early to watch the sunrise, you will be well rewarded. Rug up on the deck with a pot of tea or a Nespresso and you can be guaranteed to be joined by our neighbours - who include kangaroos, kookaburras, horses, cows and the odd duck or pelican on the dam.

After breakfast you can head out for a stroll in Pitalpa's paddocks. We have gumboots in various sizes so that enjoy the rural landscape (in style and safety).

Once the sun hits the yard arm, you can head out to the vineyards or weekend markets. Vineyards including Hungerford Hill, De Bortoli, Peterson's Champagne House, Balloons Aloft , Bimbadgen Estate and Peterson's Champagne House are 10 minute's drive along Wine Country Drive.

Central Pokolbin, the Hunter Valley Gardens, Hope Estate, Roche Estate and the other concert venues are all less than 15 minutes from Pitalpa. Taxi services are always available.

If you prefer a round of golf - the local Branxton course is challenging and cheerful. But for something more refined, Crowne Plaza and Cypress Lakes are less than 15 minutes' drive away.

We hope that you love Pitalpa as much as we do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing property, Beautiful location. This property is beautiful in a great location. The property itself is really big, with a huge master bedroom, good size Queen rooms and another great size twin room. All the beds are super comfy! The open plan kitchen, diner and lounge is a great space, and there is lots of room to move around. Some gorgeous touches left for us - Mulled wine, basics in the pantry, a giftpack, and all the modcons in the fantastic kitchen. The decking out the back is perfect for having meals outside, with gorgeous views all around - So peaceful and quiet. The property is close to the wineries, and to Branxton which has a really good local pub and an IGA. We would definately visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect house for a weekend in the Hunter We have had a fantastic weekend at Pilalpa. From the moment we were met by Janice at the front door, we knew we were going to have a good stay. The house had everything we needed and more, with some special touches. The views were incredible and the children loved playing in the garden and seeing the horses and cows next door and the kangaroos. The house is in close proximity to the vineyards and also to the local amenities in Braxton.
