Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Somewhere Unique certainly lived up to its name. The cottage was beautiful – so private and surrounded by bushland. Julia and Nick thought of everything – huge breakfasts for 2 nights as well as wine, chocolates and a cheese platter. Not to mention bikes, gorgeous toiletries and even yoga mats! Our morning “downward dogs” on the veranda were certainly enhanced by the birdsong and filtered sunlight through the trees. We were impressed by the communication from our hosts – texts and emails so we knew exactly what was happening. Thank you again for your attention to detail. A wonderful, relaxing oasis.

Somewhere Unique is the most beautiful weekend getaway that has everything you could possibly need. We stayed here for 2 nights and it was just perfect. The decor is tasteful and the cabin has everything you need. We were in the area for a wedding and the location was perfect. I will be back to stay here for sure

This place is fantastic! The hosts are excellent- they communicate clearly and quickly and pay attention to every single detail (yoga mats, bikes to borrow, towelling robes, essential oil burner, books, movies). They offer exceptional extra options that I suggest you take advantage of- cheese platter, chocolate fondue, BBQ meal pack and wine. Everything they provide is excellent quality- there is no skimping here! The breakfast portions are incredibly generous and we used it for 2 meals for both of us. The bath is enormous and has a gorgeous view. It made me feel like royalty. The king-size bed has a wonderful view and all the linens are thick and luxurious. The place is private and quiet, with spectacular views of the bush. Beautiful bird calls can be heard regularly. Everything has been designed for you to step away from your regular life and relax and rejuvenate. We are rebooking for next year. It was so so so relaxing and wonderful.

This was our second visit to Somewhere Unique after 5 long years and we left once again excited at when we would finally return to this paradise. The cabins are just stunning, beautifully tailored packages, wonderful management and a massage to top it off. The only thing you will be wondering is why you didn't book longer! Thank you so much Julia and Nick for sharing your patch of paradise with us and making our anniversary weekend so special! We can't wait to come back again one day! Amanda & Carl
