Thank you for the most memorable getaway. You have created the perfect romantic weekend away and it was so hard to leave. The food was amazing. So genuine and wholesome. P.S. send the recipes, yum! Your every little touch goes above and beyond anywhere we have stayed. Until next time as we will be back, keep doing what you are doing, just perfect.

This is our third visit to Somewhere Unique – the first since Murray and David took over. We thought it was wonderful before but the changes Murray and David have instigated have made our stay even more luxurious and indulgent. A beautiful space, wonderful food, peace and quiet. What more could you ask for? Thank you!!

From the moment I found “Somewhere Unique”, I was captured! Everything that followed simply was magical. Somewhere Unique is everything we wanted in an escape from reality and it’s also everything we needed! You have an incredible retreat, wonderful customer service … Brady and I simply couldn’t ask for more. We are itching to return!

We could not have picked a more wonderful destination for our Babymoon. The BEST sleep, bath and stay we have ever had! Like mentioned many times – you have thought of everything, and that’s what makes you “Somewhere Unique”. Can’t wait to return.

Where do we start? From the moment we walked into the door we were amazed. Your attention to detail is definitely something else. Everything you both do has been so well thought through to make ‘Somewhere Unique’ so special! Our food and wine was delicious! An extra thank you for our chocolates. Every single part of our retreat and our stay was so special. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. It was exactly what we needed. We will be back.

Thank you! Our stay exceeded expectations – from the gorgeous bed, to the magnificent bathroom and awesome food! We even enjoyed the bikes – for the first time in 20 years! We will be back!

Thank you for a great stay! You have great attention to detail and have ensured the retreats are comfy and cosy. The booking process was great! Due to being a vegetarian, you were more than accommodating to this along with other dietary requirements. The food was very generous and tasted amazing!! Thank you for everything!

This morning is our last day at Allawah Retreat and to say we are sad to be leaving just wouldn’t cover it. You helped a couple find themselves again after a crazy lifestyle of raising 4 young children, the youngest being 10 months … You go above and beyond for everyone who stays here and we will be back … this is going to be Mummy and Daddy’s time away from the kids. So once again, thank you.

I’m not sure if this is our 3rd or 4th visit, it will not be our last! The cottage is such a lovely escape from Sydney and has every luxury that one could wish for. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We slept so well, were so very warm, well fed and so pampered. Thank you again and we’ll see you again.

This is our 3rd visit and each time we come we love it more than the time before! A home away from home. Thanks for all the special touches and extras like the delicious food and candles. I have no doubt we’ll be back very soon!

Thank you for yet another amazing stay in celebration of our recent wedding. We’ve lost track of the number of stays but Somewhere Unique has become our home away from home – simply divine! We look forward to our next visit knowing that the beauty that is Somewhere Unique will remain as serene and unchanged as ever. What a superb way to escape “the big smoke”! See you soon!

Thank you for an amazing time. Everything was wonderful. Most relaxing place on earth. We really enjoyed the little things like the natural bath products and locally sourced food; you really have thought of everything. We will definitely be back again.

We have so enjoyed our relaxing few days in this magical place. It is the perfect spot to check out of life for a while, reset, rebook and reconnect with nothing but the sounds of nature in breathtaking surroundings. The food was sensational! From the scrumptious cheese platter to the the tender and juicy steak – it was all superb! A real foodie experience. This was not our first visit to Somewhere Unqiue. We were here a few years ago with the previous owners, so it was wonderful to find it just as wonderful as we remembered. Thank you for the effort and thoughtful planning you put in to make this an amazing experience for your guests. This certainly won’t be our last visit here as there is no where else that makes us feel quite so ‘zen’.
