I am a tough critic when it comes to accommodation and food. If I am paying the money to stay somewhere else or eat elsewhere – it should be better than home or what I can cook. Some would say I am pretty harsh when it comes to scrutinising accommodation or meals, but hey, its not often I treat myself and so when I do – I want it to be good – if not great.

I can easily say, without hesitation, Somewhere Unique is the best accommodation I have stayed in, in Australia – maybe even the world. Lowanna was so well appointed and so clean. I felt immediately comfortable and at ease.

Compared and contrasted to where I am now – self contained accommodation in Merewether and I am really disappointed. I am just not comfortable. Its not as clean and it just doesn’t have the thought put into it that Somewhere Unique clearly does – both in its layout and the small but significant touches you have made to it.

I have said to Andrew at least 5 times – “I wish we were back at Somewhere Unique” – and I truly mean that. Thank you for creating such a wonderful place where we can get away and truly relax and feel comfortable.

This was our first stay and my god it won’t be the last!! Everything from the second we arrived was absolutely perfect! What you provide and your presentation is amazing, and a huge credit to you both! The only downside was leaving. We will be back!

So happy we found this beautiful place. Our friends are already asking us for the name of the place to come here too. Love the feeling of seclusion in the beautiful bushland. Thank you for your hospitality and attention to detail. An amazing stay.

The name truly says it all! What a fabulous place. We loved how beautifully appointed it is and the gorgeous bathroom! Thank you for the generous provisions and welcome, and for going out f your way to accommodate our dietary requirements. We came exhausted and are leaving feeling relaxed and refreshed in this paradise. The peace and quiet, the beautiful cottage, the fabulous walks we had and the amazing weather! You’ve thought of everything! We’ll see you again!

Thank you for making the last holiday before the baby comes along memorable and relaxing. All the small touches made us feel so special, from the note on the door to remembering to make sure there was hard cheeses on the cheese platter. No request was too hard. We had a great time here and we will be recommending Somewhere Unique to all our family and friends.

It’s been yet another magical weekend for Jason and me. It is with heavy hearts we leave today but we have decided that this place – Somewhere Unique – is our special spot and we will come back to reconnect, rejuvenate and relive many, many happy memories this place has brought us. Thank you for doing what you do best! Take good care and be happy.

We’ve had the most relaxing, wonderful time at Allawah. It’s such a stunning and tranquil setting and has been the perfect escape! The food and wine were also great … you’ve thought of everything. Thanks again.

Happy Australia Day! Thank you so much for a lovely stay at Somewhere Unique. Upon arriving we knew we were somewhere very special, and it did not take us long to unplug from daily life and relax. Thank you for all the lovely provisions, we enjoyed everything from the cheese platter to the BBQ hamper and breakfast provisions. You have thought of everything … beautiful scenery and wildlife, peace and privacy. Looking forward to visiting again.

This place could just have easily been named “Somewhere Magnificent”! Frances and I both love the tranquility, the scenery, the privacy and the luxury! You guys have done a great job and we hope you keep it going for some time to come. When we come back (yes, we will be back!) you should drop in for a glass of wine and a chat so we can put faces to the names. We look forward to our next visit, until then keep up the good work and take care. Thanks for a great getaway!

This is our first time in Allawah and upon entry both Jason and myself were impressed with the presentation of this short getaway with Somewhere Unique. We were very impressed with all the finishing touches you have provided with this getaway, the meals you prepared, the cheese plate and wine on arrival was something special. You have thought of everything to complete the best getaway for us. Thank you for everything and we will be letting all our family and friends know how wonderful this place is. We will certainly be returning.
