We had an amazing time and absolutely adored the property and wished we had booked a extra day! The house was very tidy and clean as was the outside area.
The views are spectacular and the house is a perfect way to enjoy a relaxing weekend. Easy to get to wineries but you won't want to leave the comfort and the views of the property! We had guests with us from London who thoroughly enjoyed themselves too, was great to show them such a lovely part of Australia in such a fantastic setting.

Wow!! What a weekend. Celebrating my 50th birthday with 12 girlfriends. Maranda was perfect. The house was magnificent and had everything we needed. The pool and spa just topped it off. Can highly recommend the wine tour as well. Thanks to Stays in the Vines who made everything easy.

The property was excellent - in a great location and very close to some excellent wineries in the Broke/Fordwich region as well as being close to Pokolbin.
We ended up spending nights in and really enjoyed the spa.
Waking up to the picturesque view of the countryside was great and a fantastic backdrop for breakfast. We are feeling very relaxed and will definitely be back!
Thanks Murray...Glad you had a great time...hope to see you back again soon

From my first contact talking to a lass named Sue, to the ladies Jenni and Rebecca in the office and Russ in the tours section then back to Sue when we arrived back home because Christine, my partner had left a necklace in the room, the service and friendliness was impecible and beyond reproach. The house and its vista were positively amazing, the wine tasting tour that was organisied for us went like clockwork and the driver took us the long way round wherever we went to give us the best impression of the beautiful Hunter Valley. The other days we spent meandering through one of the most delightful areas that we have been to. On behalf of the other eight "oldies" (ten of us in total) I would like to convey our thanks and gratitude to all at "Stays in the Vines" for what we all thought was a wonderful relaxing week.

We had a fantastic weekend from start to finish. The accommodation was everything we could have hoped for and the only downside was it was so nice we didnt want to leave! Not sure if there is anything specific I could recommend to improve and there were no issues with the house. Thanks for all your help and hope to be able to arrange another trip with you soon!
