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.More
