From the moment we walked in we were amazed by this beautiful place, from the soft music playing to the beautiful surroundings. We were in heaven. We made use of the bikes, going into Wollombi for breakfast and taking a scenic ride along Narone Creek Rd. We will definitely be back.

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.

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. Melanie and Grant were fantastic and this was our first stay with Murray and David and we were not disappointed. 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.

Thank you so much for enabling us to escape to your piece of heaven for a few days. Our stay was perfect in every sense. Your retreat is welcoming and has everything on could need to escape. 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!

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.

We had such a lovely time here (despite the rain). You have a truly wonderful place!! Thank you for providing us with everything we need to pamper ourselves. It was worth the trip from Malaysia – Sydney – Hunter Valley and we hope to be back here again.

Somewhere Unique is the perfect name, a unique place for total relaxation. The area’s birdlife, wallabies other flora and fauna underlines the environmental initiatives your resort’s achieved. Fantastic place, we will be back.

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.

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.

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.

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.
