House didn't disappoint great location to tour the Hunter it was a shame we couldn't stay for longer.
Really enjoyed gathering my family under one roof here, for a special birthday a few weeks ago. This large modern house in a quiet golf estate, 6mins drive north of central Pokolbin is located conveniently for café & restaurant meals, winery visits, Hunter Valley Gardens, just wandering about the country roads through this lovely location, or just chilling out for a totally relaxing weekend. Used the bbq one night for an easy dinner, went out for lunch at Molines, Mount View Rd - delightful food, staff, location; wandered around the Valley on short drives to wineries. Many choices for café/restaurant & winery visits a short drive away. Nice backyard pool, plus use of The Vintage Resort's pool where the water was warmer! Nice area to stroll around the golf resort. Lots to like! I stocked the pantry with all the essentials we needed for a weekend. Coffee & tea provided. A very memorable weekend.
Unfortunately there were some items that were not working as advertised. The out door gas heater was difficult to get going and would then shut itself down after 5 minutes. We gave up on that.
The BBQ, even with 4 of the 5 burners (knob missing) on high, for some reason would not heat sufficiently to cook. It struggled to melt butter.
The oven (our back up, to keep food warm after having to cooking inside) did not work.
All items reported to agent and owner, I do hope the realestate agent had these issues fixed before the next bookings.
I would expect anyone who pays good money to stay in quality accomodation would also expect that it all worked as advertised.
Hunter Valley Getaway is the perfect house for every occasion. We have stayed in this house 3 times in the past few months. This weekend we celebrated my husband's 60th birthday with our family. The kitchen, living room, and outdoor living make it an ideal home for entertaining easily. The kitchen is a dream. The house is absolutely pristine, the swimming pool sparkles. It's easy to see that the owner takes such great care of this property. Love the Nespresso machine, such a luxe inclusion. The fridge has chilled water and ice machine, there is a wine fridge which is so handy as the fridge space isn't used up for drinks. The Zip tap is a wonderful extra. There are 4 huge bedrooms, 3 with large ensuites. Also a couple of extra smaller rooms, handy for quiet time for adults or children. The location is close to the clubhouse making it an easy stroll for breakfast, dinner, or a drink. But far enough away that you can't hear any noise. Full laundry facilities. I can highly recommend this property and we would definitely stay again. Guests we have hosted in the house also want to rent it.
