“AMAZING!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We experienced three nights of luxurious living at Casa La Vina. The privacy and indulgence afforded by these amazing villas was absolutely priceless. A massive thank you to Frank and Tracey for taking care of every (and I mean every detail) of our stay. I cannot write this review without mentioning the 'breakfast hamper' - it was delicious and again nothing was missed! Thank you, thank you.

Exactly what you would want from a romantic get away. Perfect secluded location but within the heart of everything. Super nice couple with a beautiful, new, nice property. Highest recommendation for staying. There is a good reason that this is the highest rated in the area with a perfect score. Thank you!!!

Room Tip: Go for the Grand Villa Spa!

Will definitely be back. Whether on our own or coming back with other couples. Perfect place to getaway. Close to great restaurants. Great breakfast hamper and all the other little touches - chocolates, marshmallows to roast at the fire by the outdoor jacuzzi, robes and slippers. Great double shower and big rain shower heads. Wonderful place to come if you want complete and utter privacy. LOVED IT.

Brilliant in every aspect. Large Villa, indoor gas fire with everything thought of. The outdoor Jacuzzi is brilliant especially in winter with an outdoor fire ready to make to roast the marshmallows. All the usual trimmings you expect in the bathroom, robes slippers etc. The breakfast hamper was great with drinks ready in the fridge. Really like the hassle free arrival and departure with the key pad entry. Will certainly be back and have recommended Casa La Vina to our friends already.

My husband and I honeymooned here. It was the best accommodation we have ever stayed at. Beautiful villas, perfect location and the owners were just lovely. We will be back for an anniversary in the future and will be recommending this to anyone visiting the Hunter Valley.

This place is stunning, one of the best places I've ever stayed. It's almost brand new and you are left wanting for nothing - wifi, foxtel, huge luxury bathroom with double shower, super comfy king bed, the list goes on.

I can't speak highly enough of the ambience they've created here as well - it's Mexican themed, so not your average 5 star accommodation - but in a great way. The outdoor spa with tea light candles and fireplace right next to you as you look out over the bush is in my view about as good as it can get.

It really is instant relaxation from the minute you walk into the place.

Hosts are lovely too :) and I will definitely be recommending this place to others! Thank you!

While the idea of a mini New Mexican pueblo in the middle of Australian bush might sound unusual, it works remarkably well providing an extremely relaxed, private environment.

And as for the units themselves - our spa king unit was definitely quality throughout. Well designed with a large double (wet-room) bathroom, a kitchen-dining room area and a spacious bedroom-sitting room. King (super-king?) bed, tasteful decorations, fully equipped kitchen and spotlessly clean throughout. And all the mod-cons you'd hope for; large flat-screen, cable, free wifi, i-pod doc etc. And when we arrived all the ingredients for great breakfasts were already in place: bacon, eggs, bread, muesli, fruit etc.

A further well-thought our feature was the outside area surrounded by a suitably New Mexican half-wall (very private - we couldn't see another building from our courtyard!). BBQ, dining set, loungers, open fire, spa. Everything you could want for a private and relaxed break.

And what a great location - right in the heart of the Hunter Valley.

These are people who know there business and want their customers might want. Quality throughout and value for money. If you're after de-luxe accommodation in the Hunter you need to try it.
