Reviewed February 20, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Located on the top of a hill with stunning views over the Hunter Valley.
Beautiful house, amazing hosts,
Wallabies hopping by.
Maybe the best BBQ place you can have.
We will come back.

“Beautiful and stunning holidays!”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Clean, comfortable, good atmosphere. The only bad thing is weather cloudy and raining whole day during our visit. However the location a bit hard of us as the first travel and we arrived in night time. but we able to stop by and get a very nice neighbors to help us for direction. Kitchen and wash room very clean. Overall, everything was very nice and awesome, we like this guest house. Especially kangaroos surrounding the house. Definitely we will visit again if we back to hunter valley.

Dear Lian, thank you for the review of your stay in The Annex. We are sorry you had difficulty in finding the accommodation; not always easy when you are driving in Australia for the first time, especially at night and in the rain which was unfortunate. We are pleased you enjoyed your visit to the Hunter Valley and your stay in The Annex. With kind regards, Roland & Sue .

“Flawless”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Annex is a gorgeous cottage with beautiful views. It has everything you need, and is new and clean. It is private and peaceful. All members of our family enjoyed our time here and found it very relaxing. Sue and Roland are very friendly and helpful, and they provided a generous breakfast. Don't forget to bring your food for BBQing. It is set away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to enjoy the wineries and other venues of the Hunter Valley. I would gladly come back and spend more time here.

“Viewtastic location in the Hunter Valley, beautiful place to relax and be at one with the world!”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Fantastic and thoughtful hosts, offering everything you need for a relaxing getaway in the beautiful Hunter Valley. Situated on top of a hill providing panoramic views of the stunning valley and the opportunity to experience magical sunsets. It is only 15 minutes from the heart of the Wine Region and our hosts offered to drive us to and from the area so we could hire some bikes and experience some wine without the worry of having to drive! They were also great at offering advice on other things to experience in the area such as hiking trails, historic towns, horse back riding etc, and on days when we can't be bothered to go anywhere we could just sitback and relax and enjoy a BBQ and a game of boules.

“Spectacular, in everyway most of all relaxing"”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have recently stayed in this beautifully appointed annex with our 4 children, plenty of room and very comfortable. Loved the views of the surrounding areas and most of all the peacefulness of this property. The kids had a ball, being able to ride there bikes and enjoy the freedom of space. We found this the perfect spot to relax, unwind from our normally busy lifestyle.
