“Attention to detail is awesome. It has everything and loved how clean it was. I wouldn’t change a thing!! Food pack was great and we will be back!!”
J & R, Ryde – 17 December 2015
“The cottage exceeded all expectations!! We knew we were in for a treat but even still, Allawah still blew us away. Murray and David have thought of everything to make the stay as luxurious and perfect as possible. Our Romance Package was a perfect Midweek Getaway for us and made it super special. The bathtub was perfect for relaxing after a busy day horse riding and wine tasting, and the BBQ hamper made dinner very easy and delicious. Even the thunderstorms didn’t deter us!! 10/10 would recommend to all our friends and will definitely be coming back!!”

We are so glad that we finally did, because it made our 10 year wedding anniversary PERFECT! The Wine & Dine Package exceeded all our expectations. You have literally thought of everything. We will definitely be back!”

“Indeed ‘Somewhere Unique’ is with no doubt unique and thus we rate it 10/10. Excellent setting and well executed facilities that make the place extra relaxing and enjoyable. This was our first ever time to Wollombi to celebrate my husband’s birthday at a quiet environment. To be honest it was the best ever decision I’ve made because he enjoyed his birthday as it was celebrated in a unique way at ‘Somewhere Unique’. Thank you very much for all you did put together to compliment our stay. The food was marvelous. Well done David and Murray. Definitely we will be back in the near future and recommend our friends.”

“Somewhere Unique is exactly that!! What an amazing experience. This was our first time here and we can’t wait to come back. Everything was at our fingertips, all the inclusions were beautiful. Breakfast and dinner, the food was amazing, the bath and all amenities provided. It’s so peaceful here, so relaxing. What a way to spend our 15 year anniversary. It’s so quiet, relaxing on the deck, candles everywhere, no need for TV or music, we enjoyed listening to watch what nature had to offer. The bikes were great too! Thank you! You have thought of everything. We absolutely loved our time here.”
M & C, Glenmore Park – 8 October 2015
“We absolutely loved our two night stay at the retreat. We had fabulous weather too – thank you! The fridge was beautifully stocked – couldn’t have asked for anything better – birthday wine was delicious. From the music, rose petals, bed and bathroom – it was all wow!! Waking up to that view was awesome. Love your attention to detail – candles, bath products, mags, dvd’s etc. I could really go on forever. Highly recommendable. Thank you.”

“WOW! What an amazing retreat. The views are just perfect, the heating is superb and the bed is so so comfortable. We are celebrating our 2 year anniversary and honestly could not have chosen a better place to celebrate or choice of partner!! Murray was very helpful from the start and the added ‘extras’ were a special touch. I will definitely be telling all my friends about this special place. Or maybe it should be just our special place!! and kept a secret … We love Somewhere Unique. Thanks.”
K & C, Cessnock – 25 July 2015
“We had a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful break in this beautiful valley. Just what we both needed! Thanks for the lovely retreat, all the inclusions and great provisions. Everything that we needed was at our finger tips. The bath is sensational! We spent our days wandering through the local National parks and Forests – Yengo and The Watagans. Plus a lovely day exploring the Wollombi village. The birdlife was fantastic as well. Peaceful afternoons spent listening to the birds and enjoying some lovely food and wine. Thanks again! We will be back.”

“This was out 6th stay at Somewhere Unique. We love this place so much we come here every year to celebrate our anniversary and will continue to do so.

Murray and David went out of their way to accommodate our request and we can’t thank them enough. It was another fantastic stay. Thank you Murray and David and see you next year.”

The provisions provided were so ample and delicious that one could cme to stay and never leave! However, the surrounding countryside and wineries were beautiful days out. We will not hesitate to recommend your beautiful retreat to our friends – however part of us would love to keep it a secret!”
R & D, East Ryde – 25 June 2015
“We felt right at home walking into this wonderful retreat. Everything we needed was here. Looking out to the bush setting seeing the wonderful wildlife and feeling a part of it. Loved the bed, the bath and the feeling of SERENITY!! We have been to a few retreats and we know Lowanna is by FAR THE BEST!!! Feel so relaxed and happy. Many thanks.”
M & G, Bonnells Bay – 21 June 2015

“Thank you for such an amazing weekend!
From the moment we pulled up in the driveway we knew we would be in for something special. Seeing our names written on the whiteboard near the door and such a personal message from you made all the difference. When we stepped inside, being greeted by the beautiful delicate voice of Norah Jones, we were in Heaven! There is such an amazing peace and tranquility about the place. It really helped us relax after the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Thank you again.”
R & D, Fairfield NSW – 28 March 2015
“Thank you so much for the obvious thought and consideration you have out into making this a truly wonderful escape from the fast paced world we live in. It was wonderful to sit on the deck and listen to the sounds of silence and nature. So relaxing. You have filled this wonderful place with everything needed to relax. We loved the candles and oils, selection of music and movies, comfy bed, wonderful bath … just everything. Even the dishwasher is the perfect size! We will be talking about this little hidden hideaway for a very long time and plan to come back again.”

T & G, Chatswood NSW – 8 February 2015
“Somewhere Unique was recommended to us by a work colleague and it was everything she said it would be and then some. From the atmosphere to the scenery to the tranquility and not to mention to the retreat itself. It was great to escape from everything and enjoy the time to ourselves. Thank you Melanie and Grant – you have created an amazing place here – one I intend to return to.”
G & A, Glenore Park NSW – 6 February 2015
“I said to my husband several times during this wonderful Australia Day weekend away, “it’s like they’ve made a list of all the things they thought were missing at B&B’s they may have stayed at, and made sure to include them here”. We so appreciated the peace as at home we live on a busy main road. We loved the greenery, the fresh air, the kangaroos, kookaburras and even a stunning spider who graced us with its presence. The setting of the whole house was stylish but so very homely. The bathtub … sublime. So glad we ordered the BBQ pack, it was delicious. Thank you. You are clearly in tune with people. Our heartfelt thanks.”
