3/5 Okay

Great bones and location but needs work
Upon arrival we couldn’t believe how beautiful the house was, and the location was perfect! Unfortunately we discovered through out our stay it’s clear the house hasn’t had any maintenance. One oven didn’t work, door handles and cupboard handles would just fall off. There was dog hair all over one of the bedroom doonas which ended up stuck on our moisturised infant child. House is 100% bore water (tank) 6 bedrooms but only enough hot water for 12 short showers - making the bath tub obsolete. One of the bedrooms smelt like fish. It needs a lot of work, we wouldn’t stay here again, however as mentioned a beautiful property.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect getaway with friends!
This property was amazing for our group of 6 couples. We stayed for 2 nights and everything was accommodated for. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We loved the layout of the house, living areas centralised and the bedrooms at each end of the property meant if you wanted to go to bed early, you couldn’t hear everyone else! Two spectacular indoor fireplaces and one outdoor fire pit meant that we were always kept warm and they were well stocked with kindling and firewood. The gardens and grounds were well kept and we felt like we were in Italy with the nice little outdoor area and pool. Also having the cellar door next door meant we could easily do a tasting and purchase wine without even getting in the car. Would love to make this a yearly trip, thanks so much for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful house with us! P.s appreciate you saving the master bedroom for us as the organizer of the trip. Arrived last and got the best room!

5/5 Excellent

Long Awaited Getaway!
This place was a fairytale from start to finish of our stay! Everyone enjoyed it, we had the whole clan of 5 kids, 5 teenagers and 4 adults. Great family time away, birthday celebration and opportunity for some gorgeous pregnancy pictures with the amazing scenery! Couldn't be happier, and the dogs on the property were beautiful and friendly, even got the neighbour's dog Poppy come for a visit which made the kids very happy. Beds are so comfy and rooms are just beautifully presented. Kitchen is equipped with everything you need, laundry with washing machine and dryer. Lots of space for everyone plus a big pool and lovely fire pit area for the whole family to roast marshmallows and have a laugh together.

5/5 Excellent

A true "homestead"
The house and surrounding property is spacious and not only able to accommodate a large family, but gave us plenty of room to find privacy if desired. The views out on the vineyard made us feel a part of the plantation. The kitchen is wonderful with a BBQ just outside. We were able to bring our dog! Can't recommend the property highly enough. Perfect for a wedding. AND the cellar door is directly attached to the homestead. Perfect.

4/5 Good

Great Location with lots of space
Perfect place for a group to spend a weekend at the Hunter. Friendly management. Place definitively needs an update but still clean and livable - did not detract from having a great weekend. All amenities we require for a weekend was provided - even wood for the firepit!! Due to being cold and wintery we did not use all the amenities so cannot comment on that.
