PROPERTY’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We threatened to return to Somewhere Unique last year after spending two days of relaxation and a bit of wine consumption at the Hunter Valley vineyards by helicopter. Well we went back and found the same 5 star accommodation and attention to detail experienced last year. We had the Romance package and would suggest this to anyone staying at Somewhere...

A lovely tranquil location, Murray and David had thought of everything, tastefully decorated, very comfortable, great quality food, wine (we visited the winery cellar door to buy some more), chocolates and an amazing bathroom. Despite the high temperature and humidity the air conditioning and ceiling fans worked perfectly.

Hi pinnell41 Thank you for your generous review. We are thrilled that you had a great weekend. Summer in the country, although beautiful, can be unpredictable and you certainly endured a very warm weekend. Nonetheless, with air conditioning, excellent wine and great food, whatever is happening outside seems irrelevant! Thanks again - we look forward to welcoming you back. Murray...

Great getaway absolutely loved by my wife and I. Murray and David have thought of everything. The place is very tidy modern and private. The food and snacks are of great quality and so is the wine. We will be back for sure.

An absolutely delightful place to stay if you like the peace and quiet of birds and the wind in the gum trees. The cabin itself has everything you need. We opted for the food package - the portions were very generous and the wine choices were excellent. We prepared for a large bath tub which takes 20 mins to fill...

This little hidden gem was the highlight of our Hunter Valley weekend away. It was very clean, private and very romantic. We had a package that included a breakfast hamper, a cheese and wine hamper and a BBQ dinner hamper which were all filled with delicious fresh local produce. I highly recommend staying here!

Fantastic place to stop and recharge your batteries, the detail and cleanliness of the retreat is second to none with everything you could want just waiting for you to arrive. From first impression of walking in to last impression on leaving was wow, both Murray and David have both done a fantastic job in making this a memorial weekend
