Wow! Such a perfect little getaway in a secluded spot. Everything about the villa was stunning. The bathroom was to die for and the villa had everything we needed. Highly recommend anyone to visit, especially couples!

Thank you cazbeckett! We are very appreciative of not only your FOURTH visit (!) but also for your generous review! We often advertise as a getaway to 'Somewhere Unique' as an 'escape', and that is exactly what it is - an escape from the busy-ness and relentlessness of life!

Hi there, How far are you from Wollombi Pub? Can't wait to stay here, it looks amazing!!!
I would estimate a 3-4 minute drive or 15 minute walk.
