“Amazing house, supurb location, great hosts....highly recommend”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This was without a doubt the best place i've stayed in the Hunter. The house is HUGE and really well placed in the middle of the countryside - no roads or traffic or anything in sight - just gorgeous 360 degree views of the countryside. The house itself is incredibly well equipped - all the kitchen essentials you could need. Lots of games - cards / ping pong / balls / board games. A pool. The BBQ is massive. Lots of films saved on the TV too if you fancy that. The beds are super comfy. Absolutely perfect for a group of friends of a family. Cant wait to go back. Oh and the hosts were perfect. Definitely do the wine tour with Andrew - he is great.

“Highly recommend/”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Highly recommend Kookaburra Hideaway .Marvellous place to do absolutely nothing if you feel like it.Very comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen .Even with 4 couples you don't feel on top of each other. It is the second time we have stayed and hope to do the same again next year .

“Exactly what we were after.”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This property really is a gem. Very spacious, in excellent condition with everything you need for a relaxing trip away. Located in a private and peaceful rural setting, you really can leave the busyness of everyday life behind you. It was beautiful seeing the sun rise over the paddocks and watching the kangaroos bounding about eating their breakfast. I can't fault the place. My only complaint is that my stay was much too short, I wish I had had more time to relax there.

“What A Find”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

From the moment that you arrive you will be blown away by how peaceful it is and the beautiful views from the verandah. With large beds and the beautiful wood heater it is a place that you can totally unwind and forget about the worries of the world
Our host Andrew took us on a winery tour on Saturday which was fabulous. has a great knowledge of the area & the wineries.
Can totally recommend this place. Only thing is that a weekend isn't long enough

“An idyllic retreat with a certain style. A real rural experience in comfort”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

We were seeking accommodation for my wife and 6 others. We had expected a rural retreat with all the wear and tear that usually entails but we were very happily surprised to find a beautifully maintained and quite large property with lovely panoramic view.
The rooms are of a good size and well appointed as were the bathrooms.
The real treat was the peace and quite. Just far enough away from the roads and neighbours I loved watching the sunrise (jetlag), the animals and hearing the magpies.
Next time we'll find some time to visit more vineyards and local attractions but that week we just relaxed by the pool and took in the panorama.
