About Susan Taylor

My passion is travel, I divide my time between Australia and Turkey and love meeting new and interesting people and seeing amazing new places.

I spent my youth in a NSW country town and moved to the Central Coast after finishing school. I started to travel at the age of 18 and basically have never stopped.

I love being able to enjoy two completely different cultures, love coming home to Australia but also love my life in Turkey. I've learnt lots of amazing things from living in another country and especially about hospitality and sharing experiences with new people.

Susan Taylor purchased this house in 2011

Why Susan Taylor chose Cessnock

The property was chosen for its unique and original Federation aspects, I wanted to create a space that people would enjoy visiting as well as its location near the vineyards. I had great handmade furniture made by my husband and lead lighted by me to put into the house to create that unique experience. Comfort and home away from home was my goal and I think I have achieved that here.
