It was such a pleasurable experience celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary by staying two nights at Deja Vu. The thoughtfulness of the hosts, Jillian and Brent, is evident in all aspects. The location is secluded, private and secure. The house design and landscaping is open, spacious, functional, modern and beautiful. The furniture, fittings, finishes, appliances and electronics are of high quality and luxury. The breakfast provisions are fresh, wide ranging and bountiful. The kitchen is very well provisioned with cooking utensils and condiments. The whole house is sparkling clean and polished. The immediate outside grounds and land beyond is well kept. Most of all, it’s in the many thoughtful inclusions that are provided to make your stay comfortable, luxurious, relaxing, and worry free.

On our recent trip to Hunter Valley we stayed for 3 nights at DeJa Vu Estate and totally loved it! Our modern free standing villa (one of only two) was very spacious and beautifully appointed, and offered a complete privacy being situated right in the forest. We particularly loved the outside spa, home theatre system and watching kangaroos jumping around. Definitely the place to stay if you are planning a trip to Hunter Valley. Elena and Victor.

Enjoyed a 3-night stay at one of the Deja Vu Estate villas, which was light, airy and spacious. The double ceiling height makes for an impressive space and the villa is nicely divided between an open plan kitchen / living room and a bedroom. The furnishings are tasteful and neutral. What really impressed us was how well the owners had thought of the little details - breakfast provisions, spices and utensils in the kitchen, an ipad, bandaids in the cupboard.. that's to name but a few.

Location of the villa is nice and private, you can enjoy the villa itself and the views uninterrupted. There are also kangaroos around. You'll need a car to get there and around, but roads are all good and it's easy to get to the vineyards etc nearby. The kitchen is so well equipped you can also easily cook a very nice meal at the villa. Also nice and cosy with a fire place as it can get quite cold in the evenings. Only thing I'd recommend to future guests staying there if it's cold would be to take slippers as the floors are all tiled.

We also stayed in other similar villas around Australia on our trip and this was the most thoughtfully equipped one. The region had nice activities, wine and scenery so would return there if going back to Australia and in Pokolbiin would choose to stay again at Deja Vu villas.

Room Tip: There are only two villas. Cannot comment on the interior of the other one but assume it to be simil...

Hi mick e
Lots of thanks for your review. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back in Winter. The open fire places are terrific in winter, you can relax in the spa in the bathroom and watch the fire in the bedroom or just chill out in front of the TV with a DVD and enjoy the fire in the lounge room. We hope to have an outdoor fire installed by winter on the outdoor spa deck. Once again many thanks we appreciate it and trust you had a great birthday celebration.
Kind Regards

My boyfriend and I wanted to go away for romantic weekend to celebrate our 1st anniversary. We are so happy with our choice to stay at Deja Vu Estate.

Our luxury private villa was amazing. Beautifully designed and super private. It was everything we had hoped for.

It was wonderful to be able to enjoy luxury accommodation with warm personalised hospitality. Being provided with all the ingredients and a well equipped kitchen so that we could cook up our own gourmet breakfast of a morning was fabulous and all the added extras such as home-made muffins and cookies, a complimentary bottle of Deja Vu wine, and chocolates and liqueur were divine.

We would highly recommend Deja Vu Estate and wish to thank Jillian for her wonderful hospitality.

Hi Ally and Dan
We are so happy that you choose to stay with us at Deja Vu Estate to celebrate your 1st anniversary together. We wanted to thank you very much for your generous review and also your feedback re our website, it is much appreciated. It is always wonderful feedback to receive compliments for the villas. We did go to a lot of trouble to make everything as luxurious as possible and will continue to update and make little changes to keep it all very fresh. One of the next additions will be a pizza oven on the BBQ deck for making wood fired pizzas. Lets hope it's installed for your next visit. We will look forward to seeing you again.
Kind Regards
Jillian and Brent

My Husband and I spent one night here for our Anniversary on the 10/11/13 and it was just perfect! Everything is so beautiful and relaxing, the spa is luxurious and it was so lovely to just relax with a wine and watch movies in bed, sit out by the spa or relax on the deck and cook a delicious bbq! We are already planning a trip back and cannot wait!
