The property is amazing! stunning views and luxury comfort.
Thanks again to Colette and Mike for the awesome accommodation, was the perfect place for our big group! plenty of great wineries and attractions nearby but you will find it hard to leave the beauty and comfort of this great spot. We especially loved the massive hot tub under the clear night sky of the Hunter! 10 out of 10 would definitely stay again!

Perfect house for large groups
This house is incredible, perfect for big groups. I booked a Hen's event there for 18 people, we all had separate beds, plenty of space, especially the two huge fridges and massive oven. There is indoor and outdoor settings for eating, as well as games provided for the huge lawn area! There is heating and cooling for every separate area and bedroom, as well as overhead fans. We saw kangaroos and horses on the property, and enjoyed the picturesque bush outlook to wake up to. The 12 person spa was a huge hit with everyone! Very private and no other houses anywhere near. About 25 minute drive to central winery area in the Hunter Valley. Thank you Colette for your communication and email reminders. We will definitely recommend to all our family and friends!

Amazing Property
What an amazing place! Wonderful for a special occasion or big family catch up. Plenty of bedding options and room for everyone. Everything we needed was provided - games, outdoor activities and an amazing hot tub. Colette was an excellent host, providing regular communication right up to our booking. My only complaint (as was the children's) was that we had to leave and couldn't stay longer. Would highly recommend this property and will definitely be back. Thanks Colette!

Luxurious and Affordable Group Accommodation
My friends and I have had our annual Christmas in July getaway at Hunter Moon for the last three years and every year it gets better. The house has everything you need for a big group getaway - 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a big kitchen, all the cooking utensils you could ever need, 2 big fridges, 2 BBQs, games, DVDs, hammocks, a fireplace AND a hot tub. It's also super close to a number of wineries in Broke. It's rare to find affordable group accommodation that also feels so luxurious! The beds are incredibly comfortable, the house is clean and the little touches of wildflowers in each room make it even more special. We LOVE this place!

Magicical weekend escape
We had the best 2 nights at the hunter moon house, there were 15 of us staying for a concert at Hope Estate. The rooms are all gorgeous and the new renovations are amazing. We spent a lot of time enjoying the view from large table outside on the verandah. The spa made for a great afternoon relax after we had visited the local wineries down the road. Thank you so much we already can’t wait to come back next time. Thank you so much Colette x

Beautiful , serene and really cosy!
We were looking for accommodation for my family to stay during our wedding weekend. The houses are located in a beautiful and quiet area. Hunter has a lake behind the house, gorgeous views. Cicada has a swing on a tree and spa outdoors - unfortunately since it was so cold during that week we didn't get to try it. However there's a massage chair that was a favourite of everyone! The beds in each house were supercomfy, plenty of bedroom and space for a group of people to stay in. Colette was lovely and if ever we have another big event we would love to stay here again. Thanks so much!!!

Perfect Hens weekend getaway
We were so welcomed from the outset to this property. Prior to arrival Colette provided many recommendations for the weekend of places to go and wineries to visit. The house was spacious, immaculate and had everything we needed for the Hens weekend. The spa was a hit and perfect for looking up at the stars at night. Major draw card was the massage chair which everyone throughly enjoyed! I would defiantly stay again and I know everyone else who stayed over the weekend would recommend the property too. Thank you for making our friends Hens weekend one to not forget!

Ultimate Hen's Weekend Getaway
We booked both houses for a Hen's weekend in the Hunter Valley. On arrival, we were truly speechless. this property surpassed all our expectations. The houses are set up absolutely lovely, with the right amount of glamour without feeling like we can enjoy the house and all they have to offer. We were welcomed on arrived to a goodies basket & instructions that answered all our questions. We had a group of 18, we felt that we all had our own space and we adored lounging on the back deck soaking up the first of the spring sun. Of a night, the spa was a real hit as it cooled down. The kitchen is well set out and allowed us to cook all meals with ease and enough room to have many people in there at one time! We enjoyed the countless activities there was on offer & had the most relaxing & fun weekend ever. Our only suggestion would be to have a sign on the road prior to arriving at the property. We had ladies travelling from different states etc and a few found it hard to know they were still on the right road. Thanks Colette & Mike, we will definitely be back!
