For Christmas we were given a Living Social Voucher for two nights at DenMar Estate, which exceeded our expectations of a standard escape. Upon arrival we were greeted by Dennis and Marie, the owners, and indulged in a wine tasting and canapé selection. Our room was fantastic, very clean, and contained all the essentials to cook a gourmet breakfast (bacon, Free-range eggs, bread, tomatoes), or if you were looking for something lighter, cereal and milk was also provided. We were also given a bottle of Chardonnay on arrival and a cheese plate to indulge in at our leisure.
Part of our voucher included a meal in the onsite cafe. We recommend to anyone the Atlantic Salmon main but Marie's cooking with all dishes is outstanding.
Dennis and Marie have really achieved something amazing with their estate. Their hard work has produced some of the nicest Hunter Valley wine that we tasted on our trip (So nice we bought a whole case!) The villas are surrounded by vast vines and breathtaking views, a truly amazing, relaxing experience for anyone looking for a few nights or a whole week away, there is so much to do and see.
Dennis and Marie are two of the most generous and kind-hearted hosts we have ever come across. Their hospitality went above and beyond all expectation, and we would definitely recommend DenMar Estate to anyone looking to stay in the Hunter. We will definitely be back in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Both Villas contain breathtaking views, and are spread out for a more quiet and private stay.

My husband and I spent January 7-9th at Den Mar. This was our first visit to the Hunter Valley and we had a great experience at Den Mar. I am not sure that the photographs really do justice to the Den Mar Estate or the villa's, the standard of accommodation and certainly the natural beauty of the scenery was more than we had expected. We stayed in Villa Semillon and were completely happy. The villa was immaculately clean, linens etc. in pristine condition. Although I didn't cook anything beyond breakfast each morning the kitchen had all the gadgets anyone could possibly want. There was binder with information on the area and practical recommendations which we used. The villa was spacious and the décor was tasteful and attractive. The first night we opened a bottle of Den Mar Chardonnay and sat on the patio watching the sunset over the vineyard. It was perfect.

Dennis & Marie, the owners are a lovely couple and were super helpful. They arranged a wine tour, & made dinner reservations for us. Marie gave us a private wine tasting at the Den Mar Cellar Door which was another lovely little touch we will remember. I have no hesitation in recommending Den Mar, we had a great time and will hopefully return in the future.

Room Tip: Both Villa's have excellent views of the vineyards and mountains. We stayed in Villa Semillon and everything was perfect.

We have just spent 3 nights at DenMar Estate.The accomodation was first class,spacious.modern.exceptionally clean. All our needs were catered for. The breakfast provisions were amazing-more than enought for the two of us & so fresh. Dennis & Marie were very welcoming & made us feel like friends. They recommended restaurants & wine tours & we even saw the harvesting taking place-for which they apologised - a bit noisy-but we found it very interesting. A great location & we have already recommended it to our friends

We had an absolute fantastic stay with Dennis and Marie. The accommodation was very modern, spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. There wasn't one bug in sight. The bathroom was great and the shower had good water pressure. The facilities were all excellent and there was a lot of attention to detail (even an electric blanket for the winter and automatic lights outside for arriving when dark). The food for lunch was really nice too and the wine (especially the chardonnay, cab sav and rose) was of really good quality. We would strongly recommend DenMar estate for both accommodation and wine and we look forward to returning in the future.

We just stayed 3 days at one of the villas on DenMar Estate. We loved the location as it provides easy to access many wineries in the area. The villa was well stocked with breakfast provisions and the lunch offered on arrival was above our expectations. It was nice to get to know Mary and Dennis who owned this estate and who both offered and outstanding hospitality. We really enjoyed our modern villa accommodation and enjoyed their Pinot 2008 so much that we brought home a good reserve to share with friends during the holidays. We highly recommend DenMar to anyone visiting the Hunter and we will return in the near future.
Thank you Marie and Dennis and see you soon,

Viviane and Harvey Romeike
