“Flawless”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Annex is a gorgeous cottage with beautiful views. It has everything you need, and is new and clean. It is private and peaceful. All members of our family enjoyed our time here and found it very relaxing. Sue and Roland are very friendly and helpful, and they provided a generous breakfast. Don't forget to bring your food for BBQing. It is set away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to enjoy the wineries and other venues of the Hunter Valley. I would gladly come back and spend more time here.

“Viewtastic location in the Hunter Valley, beautiful place to relax and be at one with the world!”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Fantastic and thoughtful hosts, offering everything you need for a relaxing getaway in the beautiful Hunter Valley. Situated on top of a hill providing panoramic views of the stunning valley and the opportunity to experience magical sunsets. It is only 15 minutes from the heart of the Wine Region and our hosts offered to drive us to and from the area so we could hire some bikes and experience some wine without the worry of having to drive! They were also great at offering advice on other things to experience in the area such as hiking trails, historic towns, horse back riding etc, and on days when we can't be bothered to go anywhere we could just sitback and relax and enjoy a BBQ and a game of boules.

Exceeded all expectations. Would love to stay again. The property was lovely and the views amazing. BBQ dinners under the stars with a great bottle of wine - bliss.

“Spectacular, in everyway most of all relaxing"”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have recently stayed in this beautifully appointed annex with our 4 children, plenty of room and very comfortable. Loved the views of the surrounding areas and most of all the peacefulness of this property. The kids had a ball, being able to ride there bikes and enjoy the freedom of space. We found this the perfect spot to relax, unwind from our normally busy lifestyle.

“Hardest vacation spot to leave - can't wait to go back”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I stayed at the Annex over my Christmas Holiday with a few friends and their spouses and am looking into returning for my next vacation. Driving up to the Annex, the views grew more and more spectacular, and I could hardly believe that my last part of the drive literally took me up to their little mountaintop where I could look for miles in every direction.
Roland and Sue's hospitality was incredible; whether it was ensuring we felt like we had private time as renters, or offering advice on wine tours, hiking trails or lookout points. There's also something about being able to bbq your breakfast while watching wallabies hop nearby. I would highly recommend this holiday rental to anyone looking to get away from it all (but still have the big city within reach), who loves wine or loves hiking
