“The perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our time at Hunter Views could not have been better. The floorplan is perfect for a young family - bedrooms are upstairs and the noise from the living areas downstairs doesn't travel. I stayed with my young nieces and they had no trouble at all sleeping while we were all downstairs. The villa is decked out with everything you need for little ones too - high chair, portacot, toys, blocks. Our girls were very entertained.

Super clean, quiet and private, with the added benefit of being in a really central part of the Hunter - it is fully equipped to prepare meals at home, but equally close to the wineries and Hunter Gardens where you can eat out. It's also really easy to find. We arrived on a Friday night and had no trouble at all with directions.

The Villa also has the perfect aspect - it is stunning to look out over the valley and in the winter you get the winter sun streaming into the living areas.

Thank you Catherine for this review. The Villa is a great size, for a short or long stay and that winter sun certainly improves the start of the day - mind you the view is always worth looking at.and changes with the times of year. It is a good size for 3 couples or families with games/toys for both the young and the old! Hope to see you back another time. Christine

“Very clean and perfect location”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed here with my partner and 2 other couples. The villa suited us perfectly, had all the amenities we needed and plenty of bathrooms. It was extremely clean and we would definitely stay here again. The villa was in a perfect location to the main wineries we wanted to try.

Happy that you enjoyed your stay and I agree the Villa is very suitable for 3 couples. Pokolbin has so many choices of Vineyards and Restaurants to visit but, after a full day, the Villa is a great place to return to and relax.

“Great accommodation to share with friends and family”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed 3 nights with my brother-in-law and his family. The accommodation was really homely, bright, airy and well equipped with wonderful views. The balcony area is great for a BBQ and drink wine purchased as cellar doors. Just not as clean as it could have been (floors, showers) but this tends to be standard in these resort complexes.

Thank you for this review. I will be speaking with my cleaners about the floor issues, particularly the showers which were recently professionally cleaned, grouted and new glass doors and partitions installed.

“Comfortable and well equipped villa”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Great location, beautiful views across the Hunter Valley; well equipped kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms. Comfortable beds and sofas. Enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine. We (adults) also enjoyed playing a couple of the games - scrabble & Connect 4. Excellent directions made it easy to find the villa.

Good to read about the comfortable beds which I think are a necessity when you are away and the fact that the adults also enjoyed the board games - nice change from being at home.

“A great place to stay in the Hunter Valley”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I travelled to the Hunter Valley with friends and stayed at Hunter Views. The villa is lovely, very well appointed and spotlessly clean. A very homely atmosphere. There were books, magazines and games available for guests as well as pool towels and of course all linen was provided. Hunter Views is well positioned for visiting all the attractions of the Hunter Valley. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Thank you for this review Kerry. I often think guests take a gamble when they choose a place to stay and it is always rewarding for owners to know they were more than satisfied with their decision. We would welcome you back in the future, anytime. Thanks again. Christine

“Perfect 3 bedroom villa - beautifully furnished and maintained”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

What can I say - we had American friends staying with us and they could not compliment the place highly enough!

The Villa has a lovely Northerly aspect through the trees to the surrounding countryside. Perfectly quiet location - we never heard anything from the surrounding villas. Fully furnished with high quality fittings and all of the accessories you could ever need - even down to an unlimited supply of tea light candles and holders. The kitchen is fully stocked with tea, coffee, sugar and milk, tea towels, cutlery, plates, utensils, dishwashing tablets - it was just like being in your own kitchen at home with everything available. The 3 generous bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus separate WC were immaculately presented and very comfortable with near new linen and plush towels. Comfy balcony furmiture included a large shade umbrella for the morning sun, webber bbq, and lush artifical turf.

The lounge is equipped with Foxtel and FTA TV, Blueray DVD and a mini stereo as well as a double sofa bed, 2 other double lounges, and a large dining table. There is also a generous supply of paperbacks, DVDs, board games and stocks of brochures for places to visit, maps and restaurants. All three bedrooms plus the lounge are airconditioned with modern quiet but effective split systems, allowing flexibility of temperature control. There is no WiFi at the villa but 3G internet access was fine being high up on a hill and you can always catch up on free wifi at the local cafes anyway.

The owner Christine is very easy to deal with, providing very clear instructions and an easy to operate pin code system for access (no keys required) and all in all we had an effortless but thoroughly enjoyable stay for 3 nights in the height of summer. I would not hesitate in booking this place again.

As an owner it is wonderful to know that what we provide in the Villa and the maintenance we do is appreciated by guests. We try to give guests what we would like to have if we were the guests. Sometimes something can go wrong but we do feel that we do whatever we can to make a guest feel at home and they enjoy both our Villa and the Hunter Valley.

“Great home away from home and location!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

As three couples travelling to the Hunter Valley for a weekend getaway this place was perfect. Although it's part of the Cypress Pines golf resort it is a self managed villa with everything you need. The little extras of condiments, books, tourist information, 3 TVs, 3 King size beds and 3 toilets was greatly appreciated - I don't think the resort direct villas would have so many extras!

The gas fireplace would be great for a winter stay and the aircon in bedrooms worked effectively. We didn't use the weber BBQ on the deck. The view was lovely too.

Booking was easy and Christine (the owner) very helpful with easy instructions on how to get there. Emails and phone calls were always promptly responded to.
