The space

Start your trip to the Hunter Valley by booking this room in an architectually designed home with district views, only a short drive to Pokolbin and the vineyards. You are sharing the home with an active and friendly retired couple. I rent two rooms in the house under separate listings.

Guest access

You will be staying a bright room with balcony and double bed.

If you stay with two people it is assumed you are staying in the same room (which only has a double bed).

Breakfast is included. You get a bowl of cereal, a piece of fruit, 2 slices of toast with a selection of topping and a cup of tea or coffee. You will have to prepare the breakfast yourself. Refer to the photos to see what you will get; please note that we do not cater for dietary requirements, swap items and the available toppings may change, depending on what we have in the house when you stay with us.

You are able to use the kitchen to cook your own lunch or dinner. You will be sharing the space with us. You will be required to clean up after yourself and stack the dirty dishes in the dishwasher.

There is a BBQ on the balcony that you can use. Please clean the BBQ after use.

There is ample parking in the street.

Use of the dining room and lounge room is included, these facilities are shared with us.

If you have any questions please send me an email.

Interaction with guests

As a retired person I am normally available to help welcome you and give advice when needed.

Marlene is a really good host. Her place is really modern with the entire home being really clean and comfortable and a short drive to all the nearby vineyards. The breakfast spread like others have said - is really good.

Lovely home, Marlene was a great host. Very comfortable room with generous breakfast included. Would definitely recommend for proximity to vineyards and value for money.

Lovely place to stay if visiting the vineyards due to how central it is! The breakfast condiments Marlene layed out in the morning were extensive and very thoughtful! Marlene and Snow were friendly and welcoming and they live on a quiet street in a brand new house. Everything was spotless with a gorgeous large bathroom and comfortable queen bed. The only thing to note is that if other guests are staying in the adjacent room then you do loose a bit of privacy as the walls are fairly thin and you share the upstairs bathroom. Other than that it was a perfect stay! The wifi was also very fast and there is a mounted tv screen as well :)

If you're coming to Hunter Valley to see the wine country you can do no better than staying with Marlene and Snow in their practically new and spotless home in Cessnock. We loved the experience and you will too!

Marlene User ProfileMarlene is a superhost.

I live in Cessnock, NSW, Australia and I am a retired nurse. I used to run a bed and breakfast business before my children where born and while they were young. I live with my parter Graham (Snow).

I have three grown up daughters and seven grandchildren, who all work hard to keep me up with the latest technology.

Life should be enjoyable and simple and if it isn't, then elimate the things that are holding you back.
