HUNTER VIEWS POKOLBIN - WINE COUNTRY

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Pokolbin - Hunter Views

3 bedroom fully self contained Villa

'Wine Enthusiast' magazine says visit the Hunter Valley for its 'terrific wines made in styles found nowhere else on the planet'. It is listed in the 2013 top 10 wine destinations in the world and - that's where our Villa is.

The Villa is two storey, privately owned, situated in a complex on a leading golf course (others nearby) and surrounded with wineries and restaurants. It faces North and the Barrington Tops Range which continually change colour.

I personally look after all booking enquiries and we live locally so know the area very well.

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs. Bedrooms 1 and 2 have king beds whilst bedroom 3 has a king/split which enables 2 singles if requested. Bedrooms 1 and 2 have balconies looking North to the mountains. There is an en suite (bath, shower, toilet) and a bathroom (shower, toilet).

Downstairs the large open area consists of dining, lounge (with gas fire), kitchen, laundry, guest toilet.and deck where you can sit at the table admiring the view and tasting your local wines while your steak sizzles on the Webber.

The Villa is fully self contained - down to plastic wrap and foil in the kitchen! There is air/con throughout, smoking outside only and pets are not permitted.

Information: Perhaps when you make an enquiry, particularly if you do not reside in Australia, you could advise the following:-

1. Whether there are children and if so, their ages

2. If you have been to Australia previously

3. What type of holiday you are hoping to have and what you want to experience

This information will be of great help when replying to your enquiry.

I look after the Villa bookings and the small added touches to the Villa itself. My husband and I live in Pokolbin and have done so since 2003. We have quite a family of daughters who are scattered around the globe.

The Villa has a beautiful outlook over trees to the mountain range. The three bedrooms are complimented with a good size living area and deck. We go the 'extra distance' to make the guests feel at home in a clean, well equipped and welcoming Villa.

We love the Hunter Valley and get pleasure from knowing other people share our feelings for the diversity the area offers to our visitors. The wineries, restaurants and golf courses are hard to beat. You can be energetic or just relax and either way have a wonderful time.

Cozy Home with all essentials

  • 5 out of 5
Very nice and very well equipped home in very good condition. We thoroughly did enjoy our 14 day stay. The beds were very comfortable, the villa very well maintained, the owners very helpful. The furniture is tasteful and functional, the kitchen fully equipped, dishwasher, microwave and large refrigerator with ice box available, dryer and washing machine in a side compartment, Weber gas BBQ on the balcony - all highly clean and full function able. Decorative plaids on bed make you feel warm and comfortable, interior furnishings complement this feeling. Clean bathrooms, all essentials available. Plenty of information about "what to do" in Hunter Valley, DVD#s, books, TV and audio system leave nothing open. we would definitely book this villa again.

Owner's Response: I was thrilled to read this review. The knowledge that a couple from Overseas came to stay for 2 weeks in the Villa and they really enjoyed that stay was very rewarding. As I look after the Villa personally I try to provide guests with what we look for when we are away from home - a home away from home which is great to come back to after a day exploring. This I think we do achieve with the inclusions in our Villa.

The Hunter Valley is a great part of the world and these guests certainly made good use of the local attractions - golfing, bike riding, wine tasting, restaurants and galleries. Having contact between the guests and myself prior to their arrival hopefully makes the guests feel a little easier about what type of property they are coming to and what activities are available, particularly Overseas guests are often sending money off for an area not well known and if I can help reduce that anxiousness then that's a bonus

I believe the birds, possums and kangaroos were a great highlight and we would all welcome D and I back anytime.

Christine.

Perfect Escape in Picturesque Pokolbin

  • 5 out of 5
When we walked first through the door of the villa what we had seen from pictures and the description on the website was exactly what the villa was. All you needed to do was unpack and relax, everything was supplyed down to a nice bottle of Hunter valley wine chilled in the fridge. The villa was clean, tidy and well maintained, we would give it a 5 star rating nothing less, it was central to everything, Hunter valley Gardens, General store, Iris Pub, and of course lots of winery's. The villa had all the resort facilities available to you as a private guest of the resort, we all would like to thank Christine for our wonderful stay, and the excellent customer service supplyed with making our stay very relaxing. Guess what we will be back, and I will have no hesitation in recommending Hunter Views to my family, friends, and work colleagues when visiting Pokolbin.
Thanks once again Christine,
Regards Tony & Lisa Kerfoot & Family.

Owner's Response: I am of the opinion that the pre-service given to those who enquire is as important as the presentation of the Villa itself. I will answer as many questions the guest may want to ask during the booking period.

The fact that the Villa was actually as advertised is, I believe, very important. My photos may not be as perfect as a professional's but, they are genuine and kept up to date! Unfortunately the Resort tennis court facilities are not available but we do have a pool in the trees just a little way down the path from the Villa.

As an owner I was happy to read the words "all you needed to do was unpack and relax" in this guest's review. We set out to make the guests feel at home in our "clean, tidy and well maintained" Villa as soon as they open the front door and look through the large windows to the country view.

The numerous attractions the area has to offer are a bonus. My husband and I live in the Hunter Valley so may be a little biased but, the area is well worth a visit and naturally we would recommend Hunter Views to be the place you return home to after a long day out having fun.

The Hunter Valley is a two hour drive North of Sydney and it is Australia's oldest Wine Region. It is a truly amazing experience with wines made from Hunter grapes over the past 200 years and by some of the oldest to the youngest wine making families.

The wine tasting trails visiting the many Cellar Doors are a wonderful way of tasting the fabulous fruits from the area. It has been said that our 'Hunter Valley Semillon is Australia's unique gift to the wine world'.

Our restaurants are varied - from fine dining to alfresco style while you sit outdoors amongst the gum trees, and fresh country air

If you are the energetic type then you have many choices:

Horse riding, sky diving, flights in helicopter, jet or vintage plane - see the Valley from a Balloon - The Vintage and Cypress Lakes golf courses.

If not:

Spas - wander through the gorgeous Hunter Valley Gardens - great galleries - drive to the Coast and walk the beaches.

Our summertime outdoor concerts are amazing.

Other Activities: Wine tasting, hot air balloons, vintage plane ride, great eateries and galleries - all of these within a 20 km radius

Golf: Within 10 kms there are:-

- three top class courses - The Vintage, Cypress Lakes and Hunter Valley

- local (not as expensive) courses and

- an Aquatic Golf Range.

Mini golf for the children
