“Beautiful architecture with stunning views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

This place is gorgeous! Is in a great central location in the Hunter. The architecture is beautiful along with a gorgeous outlook. Very relaxing and had all the amenties you could want.
I do however think that the cost of $399 per night was rather expensive for just the 2 of us. Another downside to this place was the check out time of 10am on a Sunday. At 10:00 on the dot, we had two young girls turn up to start cleaning and whilst packing our car to leave got asked rather rudely "How long do you think you two will be".
Other than that it was a very romantic stay in a beautifully designed unit. Congratulations to all the people that worked on this project.

Had an enjoyable 2 night stay at this very interesting accommodation. 3 units in total .. look at their website for details of the charity involved. We enjoyed the different type of design and the outlook was extremely peaceful. Off the beaten track but only minutes to all the wineries in the Hunter valley. We got a discounted price which was great but I think the advertised rate is too expensive for this accommodation. There are only the 3 units for rental. Our cabins had 2 bedrooms with own ensuites, fully appointed kitchen and verandah and verandah. No undercover parking or pool.

I stayed with some girlfriends for two nights over a weekend.

The design, features, comfortable beds and lush pillows, the view, the deck, the bathroom are all clean, new and great quality..

The views are to wonderful and the local wildlife on your door step is a real treat!

The only criticism would be that you need a few basic things in the kitchen, ie. salt, pepper and olive oil. Things that you forget to pack! Also conditoner in the bathroom.

A great place to stay in the Hunter compared to what else is on offer for the price! Cant wait to go back...

Room Tip: they are all the same

We stayed for two nights and it was so quiet and relaxing.The only criticism would be the large deck lacks a bit of privacy and theres no drapes for the bedrooms.This was fine for me being a morning person but my hubby didn't like it.It's a very clever setup and the view is to die for.We used the local taxi service to go out at night and only had to wait a short while, overall a very pleasant stay
