Reviewed 19 August 2014

We recently stayed 2 nights in one of the villa's (only 2 on the property) it is very private and peacefull. Loved the fireplace and outdoor spa not to mention the sparkling wine on arrival, breakfast daily, nespresso coffee, T2 teas, muffins, complimentary muscat and chocolates on second night, bose sound system, large TV, iPad, DVD's, games.... Amazing! right down to the little touches in the bathroom and the kitchen was very well equipped for all your cooking needs including herbs, olive oil, balsamic vinegar - the lot!

If looking for a but I'd say the spa wasnt hot enough for us as we like it at 38-39 but was only at 37 which is of course still useable but not the temp we are used to.

Our stay at Deja Vu was amazing. We stayed in the one bedroom villa for three nights. We had high expectations already because when we looking for accommodation in the Hunter Valley it was the only place that ticked all the boxes. We wanted for a romantic getaway but when we arrived it totally exceeded our expectations. It was the little touches Jillian and Brent made to the villa such as building the fire everyday and leaving us desert wine to celebrate our engagement plus much more made the weekend even more special. The villa was totally private, very quiet, the open fireplace was amazing and the outdoor jacuzzi left us so relaxed. It was an amazing weekend, one that I won't forget and we hope to be back soon!

We stayed at one of the déjà vu villas for the weekend and it was absolutely beautiful. The two bedroom villa was fully equipped with everything needed. The breakfast feast was fantastic. Sparkling wine was lovely. The surrounding bush land very peaceful. We would recommend to all.

Room Tip: The TV was a little difficult to figure out how to operate but this was a minor problem.

Hi Greg B
Thanks for your review.
We're glad you enjoyed the sparkling wine. We hope to be able to offer you a shiraz or chardonnay next time you visit. Budburst has happened and away we go with another vintage.
This will be the first time our new vineyard will produce fruit from the chardonnay and shiraz blocks.
We hope to see you again next time you visit Hunter Valley Wine Country.
Kind Regards
Jillian and Brent

I spent wonderful few days here with my partner. The lodge is outstanding, so nice we didn't want to go out for the days but wine tasting just about won over...for a few hours a day anyhow.
Lovely attentive owners, nice touches but not overwhelming. I would highly recommend to anyone at least a few days stay at - Deja Vu Estate.....Rory & Matti from England

My wife and I had a short break to the Hunter and what a fantastic find Deja Vu Estate is. The luxury offered by Jillian and Brent is second to none.
Everything has been thought of, we loved sitting in the outdoor spa and watching the night sky with a glass of wine.
The villa is thoughtfully presented and designed offering absolute luxury.
Jillian and Brent are wonderful friendly hosts and nothing was too much to ask.
We will return again and recommend to all our friends.
Thank you so much for looking after us.

We've just gotten home after three perfect nights at the Deja Vu Estate, and I cannot recommend the place highly enough. The kitchen was perfectly appointed (the gas was a dream to cook on), the supplied breakfast materials were exactly what we needed, and all the little details added up to suit us perfectly. We even came back to a little bottle of dessert wine and chocolates on our second two nights! Everything we could think of was in place; Jillian has done an amazing job with everything. Highly recommended!

Hi aestivus
Thanks for your review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed staying with us.
People often say the kitchen in the villas is much better than the one they have at home so it's good to see you enjoyed using it.
We keep saying this but thank you for your recommendations we really do appreciate how important it is to have guests go away extremely happy with their experience at Deja Vu Estate.
We look forward to welcoming you back net time.
