Fantastic Accommodation in the Hunter Valley

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Bob's Balcony. We stayed with our two children and my husbands parents and the house was so inviting and charming. It was neat and clean, the location was quite central and it ticked all the boxes for us. We had a wonderful getaway and Kim and her family were very accommodating. We will definitely be back.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at bobs balcony on Friday and Saturday night along with 7 other girls and my mum for my hens weekend.

I think the house is amazing and there were so many little extra touches that they had thought of such as giving each guest towels, beach towels, soaps, shampoo, conditioner on our beds and even had milk, butter and frozen ice to make us feel like we were at home!

There is plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably and the view from our bedroom was amazing!!

The property is in a great location, on the Saturday we did an all day wine tour in the hunter valley which was only a 5 minute drive from bobs balcony.

For a rowdy bunch of girls I think Kim was very patient with us and still allowed us to have a nice weekend, even when we got a little loud at times! (sorry Kim)

Thanks for having us!!! X

Gorgeous quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bob's Balcony. It was perfect for what we needed with enough space for everyone. The hosts were welcoming but not obtrusive, all the facilities were first rate and the view from Bob's Balcony was exceptional. Perfect for a family looking to self cater a bit and a great location near the freeway and close to wineries etc. Would definitely stay there again.

Fabulous place in the hunter!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Bob's Balcony recently. The cottage was perfect for a weekend away - clean, decorated nicely and spacious. The pool was perfect for an afternoon swim and the balcony was amazing for some sundowners and watching the kangaroos :)

Location was great too.. close to the wineries, but set back from the main road in a quiet, country setting. We will definitely stay again!
