“Luxurious, secluded, classy - a real treat”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This place is just a delight. We were lucky enough to have four nights in the Hunter in one of the two superb villas at Deja Vu. Very spacious with quality fittings and a two way open fire which was perfect for crispy June nights. Gillian provided an abundance of supplies for breakfast and has pretty much thought of everything! Do yourself a favour and find some time to stay here.

Hi mftlat
Thanks for taking the time to review us.
Not many people get the chance to have 4 nights in the villa, we are very happy that you did.
When we see you next winter we will have installed the new pizza ovens for you to stay at home and enjoy a pizza with a spa and the open fire.
Thanks again we hope to see you next time you visit Hunter Valley Wine Country.
Kind Regards
Jillian and Brent

This is free standing luxury accommodation at it’s best!

I couldn’t believe it when we drove up to the property. We couldn’t see any other villa’s and it felt more like a house than a villa. It is so beautiful, surrounded by nature and with all the fine touches of luxury. My friend and i enjoyed the complimentary sparkling in the hot tub, lit the fire, cooked up a gourmet dinner of supplies we had collected in the local area and a nice bottle of red. The gourmet kitchen had everything we needed and supplies for a beautiful cooked breakfast, spices to use for dinner, teas/coffee machine, the lot.
It’s only a few minute drive from many of the favourite vineyards on McDonald’s Road.
We couldn’t have asked for a better escape, only that we didn’t stay long enough!
I will definitely be back! 5 stars!

Hi Katrina C
We wanted to say thank you for your review of Deja Vu.
Guests often comment about the privacy of the property and how it is surrounded by natural bush.
Glad you loved the kitchen so much and we look forward to welcoming you back the next time.
We hope it can be a little longer too so that you get to have a long weekend break.
Kind Regards

What can we can say that hasn't already been said about this place. Everything about our stay was incredibly enjoyable, from the immaculate accommodation down to the smallest detail. All our needs were more than taken care of and Jillian was the perfect host. We were absolutely blown away by the attention to detail. There was not one item in the place, that had not been thoughtfully put there, from the hand built fire awaiting very little effort to get it going, down to the small box of sewing supplies. We cannot wait to spend our next weekend there.

Me and my girlfriend loved Déjà Vu Estate. The property is beautiful, the rooms are immaculate and include all the mod cons you'd need. Jillian was a lovely host, showing us everything we needed to know about the lodges and property as well as the information about the local area. Champagne in our own private spa and a beautiful fireplace made our stay. We'll be back! (and with our dog as they are pet friendly)

My wife and I celebrated our 10yr anniversary here over two nights and it was perfection. Every little detail was thought of to make the private lodges seem like a 5-star hotel with high quality appliances, modern furnishings, spa & jacuzzi, free local calls, Wifi + ipad usage. The lodge also shared the comforts of a B&B with open fireplace, local produce for breakfast, champagne & wine samples from the estates vineyard, and an amazing king size bed made from an up-cycled wine barrel. We are so glad to find Deja Vu Estate and will definitely be returning.

Hi Ed L
Thanks for taking the time to post your review, we appreciate it.
We are so pleased that your 10 year anniversary celebration was most enjoyable.
Thanks for commenting on the attention to detail and facilities that we offer at Deja Vu Estate.
The wine barrel king size bed gets lots of positive comments. It's made from a large 1960's Lindemans barrel, that matured an award winning early 60's Shiraz.
We hope to see you again, maybe for your 11th anniversary celebration.
Stay well.
Regards
Jillian and Brent
