We decided quite late on a post Christmas trip to the Hunter Valley so the choices were limited as this is a busy time of the year.
One of the few remaining cottages available for short term rent was at Billabong Moon. A property with six cottages around a Billabong and forest.
We booked Forest View, with two bedrooms and one bathroom, which they fail to tell you is part of a larger house divided off with a set of doors and you can hear the occupants in the other part of the property.
The house is basically furnished with average quality furniture but beds were firm and comfortable.
They advertise a newly refurbished kitchen but have only provided the bare minimum of kitchen and dining ware. There were only three side plates but four of everything else but nothing extra. We had to ask the couple who were joining us later to bring a decent sized saucepan and oven dish so we could prepare a decent dinner. The kitchen waste bin was one of those tiny pedal bins designed for a bathroom!
The TV provided sound but no picture.
The location is very peaceful and the swimming pool a welcome relief in the very hot weather.
Having rented many different properties throughout Australia this one was disappointing.
The other cottages on the property were all detached and may have been better fitted out than Forest View.
Stayed here for the weekend while visiting the Hunter valley. Excellent location in front of a lake and even had a boat to row about in on the lake. Excellent place two double bedrooms both en-suite. Perfect location to spot some wildlife we saw kangaroos,iguanas, ducks kingfisher to name a few
Have stayed there twice now. Has been perfect! We brought with out red setter who loves it there and was able to freely run around the large area which even had gates all round it!
The room is so beautiful. Well designed, spa bath, cheese platter and wine included, tea coffee... privacy... beautiful location.. great air con and fan if needed..
They want that little bit extra for me as weel with some lost property. I dont review places often, but they deserve it. Keep it up Billabong Moon.!
Spent two nites there last week end. We stayed in the two bedroom cottage. It is well appointed with a nice log fire to assist with the inter chill. Eac room has its own ensuite which is great especially in winter. Its secluded location in a well maintained rural style setting adds to the ambiance. Highly recommended.
Well located mini homes spread over a rural setting provide the perfect stay for couples, families and wedding parties!!
Our beautiful daughter had a memorable elopement package including an elegant service on the deck adjacent to the pool area.
The well treed and picturesque property provided the perfect setting for the after wedding photos.
Management had prepared the property expertly the day before and was available to satisfy any requirement!
The two bedroom home, on the lake, was the perfect accomodation for the married couple and the deck over the lake's edge provided a great setting for the after wedding BBQ.
If you are thinking of sampling the local, Hunter Valley, wines and touring the region, this is the place to stay!!
