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’.

Thank you for another memorable stay. Your information and tips on local hikes and wine trails was invaluable. Once again a wonderful experience and stay and we look forward to our next trip.

We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful stay we’ve had at your amazing retreat. Everything was absolutely amazing – fresh fluffy towels, comfy bed, and peaceful surroundings! And the BATH … OMG – there are no words! The in-house massages with Kylie and Jo were so relaxing, and we loved chilling outside on the sunloungers. We can’t wait to come back – my only regret is that we didn’t get to meet your dogs! Till next time.

WOW this place is amazing!! The website doesn’t do justice to how beautiful this retreat is! The music on entry was so welcoming! The food and wine was amazing. The views are amazing and the sound of the wildlife is oh so peaceful! The bath OMG Laura now wants one exactly the same at home! This place is so much more than 5 Star and we have fallen in love with this beautiful area! This will definitely become an annual treat for us! As Arnie would say “I’ll be back”.

Thank you, thank you! This place totally exceeded our expectations. The place caters for every need. Food was amazing, the bath was awesome, bed so comfy and the fireplace perfect. You should be so proud to put your name to a place like this. I will be talking about this experience for a long time. So romantic, peaceful and totally relaxing stay. Thank you again.

From the moment was walked through the door we were astounded at how beautiful the place is, incredibly welcoming and everything we could have wanted. We spent our stay relaxing, eating the amazing food provided and wishing it would never end. It was a stay we’ll never forget. This weekend will be a memory that lasts not just because of how perfect it was but because I asked my partner to marry me. Thanks so much.

We can’t thank you enough for helping us make some amazing memories here in Wollombi. This place is immaculate, attention to detail amazing and the photos on the internet really don’t do the place justice! We feel so lucky to have come across your website. We will be sure to recommend you guys to all friends and family! Absolutely amazing.

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend getaway for Denise’s birthday. The surprise gift was lovely and we walked into the retreat and felt relaxed in an instant. As previous guests have observed, the place is immaculate and you have thought of everything. Dinner was great, cooking our ready to go meal Friday night and lovely at Margans Saturday night. Waking up with the birds and fog was stunning. Thank you for the care you have taken to provide this wonderful retreat. We hope to be back but for longer so we can explore the area more.

It’s 1pm on Sunday and we are feasting on your delicious sticky date pudding, and trying to delay our departure. Thank you for sharing this loveliest of spots with us. The location, accommodation and service have exceeded all our expectations. And the meals were as delicious as they were generous! Unfortunately you have set new standards!! We won’t be happy with anything less. Somewhere Unique really is unique. We leave with very fond memories of our weekend.

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!
