Beautifully located villa in Lovedale.

  • 4 of 5

The villa is in a beautiful location. It is large enough for a group of 12. It is rustic, yet clean expect for numerous cobwebs, which you expect in the country. The kitchen is well equipped, if not, a little too many bits and pieces, especially in the sideboard in the dining room. There were no tea towels provided which meant we had to make a trip into Cessnock to buy some and there were no matches or lighters to light the BBQ. The beds were very comfortable. The bedroom downstairs in dark and you can hear everything from upstairs. Apart from that and need to fix some major leaks in the kitchen, it was a lovely place to stay with s group of friends.

Owner's Response: Hi Marea, It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay at i villini! Thank you for your open and honest feedback on your experience during your stay which we have taken onboard. Our cleaning team has been updated with your feedback regarding the tea towels and BBQ. The torrential rain brought the leaks to our attention for the first time and we very much appreciate your understanding when they occurred and thank you for bringing it to our attention at the time. We are so glad to hear that all the other aspects of the property were enjoyed by you and your group. We would love to welcome you back to the Hunter Valley in the near future.

A little piece of Tuscony

  • 5 of 5

"Not sure how our stay could have been improved. Rooms full of character. House amazing for the 5 couples to have a lovely social getaway together and also have privacy. Absolutely a little piece of Tuscony in the Hunter Valley. Wish we had stayed another day or two."
