This place ticks all the boxes!!
Wonderfully appointed accommodation, luxurious, fresh, clean and funky. From the "wine barrel" four poster bed, to the spa on the deck, the two generous decks (with herb garden) communing with nature, to the well appointed kitchen, surround sound, cosy lounge and heated bathroom floor. The list goes on. This place is extremely private, your only visitors are the native kind - wallabies, goannas, rabbits, birds and even a fox!!!!
The "do it yourself" nature of the place appealed to us, and meant we really could take our time, relax and recharge. Do nothing and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of a little slice of heaven in the Hunter.......
Oh, and of course, dont forget the wineries.
Having stayed in the Hunter a number of times, we can thoroughly recommend Deja Vu Estate for its 5 star luxury and value for money!!
Deja Vu hosts Jillian and Brent are very welcoming and engaging. Thank you Jillian and Brent for the little "extras", they were very thoughtful and appreciated.
We will definitely be back and hopefully try out the fireplace next time - if not sooner!

Hi Fran M,
Thank you for your kind words and review of Deja Vu Estate. It was lovely to meet you and Simon. We're glad you enjoyed your special celebration so much. It was a pity with all this crazy weather that you didn't get a chance to try out the fire place. This week it was cold enough to stoke the fire and keep it going all night, but a week ago it was 34°.
We look forward to welcoming you back and wish you and Simon another 28 happy years.
Kind Regards
Jillian and Brent

This is by far the best place in the Hunter Valley. 100% recommend it for the seclusion but the place itself is one of the best I have ever stayed. The biggest complaint was that we only stayed 2 nights. Will definitely be back.

What a wonderful time we had in your magnificent accommodation. There is nothing you could do to make it anymore perfect. Thank you Jillian for all the personal touches.
We could not of dreamed of anything more beautiful and private, absolutely fantastic.
Loved the fire place and jacuzzi and the dinner you supplied for us was delicious.
We didn’t want to leave but we guarantee we’ll be back.

Hi NinaR, We are so glad you had a wonderful time at Deja Vu Estate. Thank you for your kind words. The fire place and jacuzzi, as you would imagine, are very popular with our guests, as is the privacy. Now that the weather has started to warm up we have replanted the potted herb garden on the BBQ deck. The next time you stay with us you can enjoy picking fresh herbs to have a go at the herb steak rub you enjoyed so much. We look forward to welcoming you back to Deja Vu.
Regards Jillian and Brent

Psst, don't tell anyone, but we have found the "hidden paradise" location in the Hunter Valley, NSW. One side of me wants to tell the world and the other tells me that when I do, that we will not be able to enjoy Deja Vu Estate again soon as it will be permanently booked out!

As well-travelled folks, we always look for something different and of value and once again we have found it in the Hunter Valley. If you want privacy and beautifully appointed accommodation in the bush with the vineyards right at your doorstep, then you can go no further!

Jillian and Brent are fantastic hosts and have provided everything that you could possibly desire. The villa is as a large as a house, has a fantastically appointed kitchen, dining area and lounge with open fireplace as well as a huge bedroom and bathroom that will impress anyone. Two large decks and a spa pool provide relaxing areas in the morning and afternoon.

This is a villa meant for two and only two as you would only want to share it with your loved one.

Well done Deja Vu.



Jillian and Brent - thank you both for such a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Don't bother looking at any other accommodation in Pokolbin; this is the one you want.

Room Tip: If there is better in the Hunter Valley, you will pay a whole lot more and get a whole lot less.

Hi PaulLou, Thank you for your review, we very much appreciate your kind words. We have tried to include as many "little extras" as possible and will continue to do so in the future. We're currently saving up to buy some beautiful artworks to hang. We're very pleased you said we offer value for money as that is what we set out to do. Please let the side of you that wants to tell the world win. We'll make sure you get another booking.
Again many thanks.
Regards Jillian and Brent

Last week, my husband and I stayed at Deja Vu Estate on our way home to Brisbane from Newcastle. After attending my sister-in-law's wedding it was time for us to have some alone time and enjoy a bit of romance for ourselves. We are very well-travelled people and can honestly say that there is no better place anywhere in the world than Deja Vu Estate for some romantic recharge time. Acres of property surround you and there is not another human being in sight!

After 20 years in hospitality, I have yet to meet the equal of Jillian and Brent; they are exceptional hosts. Everything that we could possibly desire was at our fingertips; nothing was left out. Even the Jacuzzi was pre-heated and ready to go for us when we arrived. Believe me when I tell you that we were in that hot-tub just as soon as Jillian drove over the hill after showing us around the villa.

Every review for Deja Vu Estate here on TripAdvisor is at the 'Excellent' level. Jillian and Brent have earned every praise they get and more. I have no doubt that their hard work, forethought, attention to detail and outstanding insight into what a guest wants, will see them through a great many years of unparalleled success.

We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them for the best service we have ever received from an accommodation provider. I defy anyone to say something negative about this wonderful couple and their superlative Estate.

Jillian and Brent - thank you both for such a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Don't bother looking at any other accommodation in Pokolbin; this is the one you want.
