Mandalay Villas is a privately owned retreat, nestled in five acres at the foothills of the Broken Back Mountain Range 15 minutes from the Hunter wineries. By combining the tranquility of the Australian countryside with luxurious self-contained accommodation, our two villas provide a secluded haven where guests can kick back and escape the hustle and bustle of city life with no fear of interruption. Your hosts, Simon and Toni, have lived and travelled extensively throughout Asia, Europe and the USA and carefully integrated their collection of art, books and object d’art into the villas at Mandalay. Guests will not only be able to enjoy these but also a selection of modern amenities, including private swimming pools, fully equipped kitchens, flat screen TVs, reverse cycle air-conditioners,...Mandalay Villas is a privately owned retreat, nestled in five acres at the foothills of the Broken Back Mountain Range 15 minutes from the Hunter wineries.

Had an absolute blast at the Mandalay Villas. Simon and Toni were great hosts, with great recommendations for both Vineyards and food locations. Very helpful and willing to provide additionals such as bikes, and a horse ride! Would most definitely stay here again.

After two decades of regularly visiting the Hunter, we happened to take a chance on accommodation away from the mainstream. So glad we did as Mandalay was the best find. Ten minute drive to Cessnock and not much more to main Hunter region. We have...More

About the neighbourhood
Dotted with historic country towns and lavishly carpeted with some of the oldest vineyards in Australia, the Hunter Valley is the ideal destination for romantic getaways, family breaks, gourmet food and premium wines.
How to get there
HOW TO FIND MANDALAY VILLAS We’re at the beginning of Congewai Road, just after Paxton and slightly beyond the Ellalong Lagoon. Mandalay Villas is an easy 12 minute drive from Cessnock (our nearest main town) in a south westerly direction. Your arrival into Cessnock will bring you to set of traffic lights facing the Royal Oak Hotel. Turn right onto Vincent Street and follow it to the large T-junction and the set of traffic lights where the street ends. Turn left at these lights and leave the town centre on the road to Wollombi, (be careful, the speed limit along this stretch of road is 60 kph). After 7 kms take the turning on the left to Paxton (Middle Road). Drive for 4 kms and pass through Paxton, whereupon you’ll arrive at a crossroads.
