Step into a world of indulgence and luxury in the majestic Hunter Valley Region of New South Wales, Australia. Live the dream vacation filled with romance, adventure, excellent food, and the ultimate comfort found only at the exclusive Cedars Mount View. Surrounded by verdant wild bush and 100 acres of rolling and well-maintained grounds, this secluded retreat offers only five tastefully furnished spa villas ensuring guests are afforded absolute privacy.
Created with couples in mind, Cedars Mount View’s lavish lodgings are decked in everything one could possibly imagine indulging in while on a holiday. Fancy a warm and luxurious bath in a tub made for two? How about enjoying a conversation by the open fireplace while sipping some of the best wines from Hunter Valley’s oldest vineyards? A night of movies and popcorn perhaps? However you choose to relax, Cedar Mount Views villas are sure to please.
What is even harder to decide on, besides what you want to do first when you are here, is choosing which spa villa to book. There are only five, but each is equally dressed to impress and pamper.
The newest of Cedar’s villas is The Edge, so named as it is perched on the banks of Cedar Creek. The Edge’s contemporary design features three levels of absolute luxury. The mid-level or entrance level is where you find the dining area and dreamy kitchen equipped with a four-burner gas cook-top, refrigerator, microwave and electric ovens, Nespresso U Milk machine with coffee pods, and Caeser-stone bench.
In the lower level you’ll enjoy the circular hydro-therapy spa bath that looks out to a spectacular view and even has a 42-inch TV and mini-bar. Next to that, the living area furnished with leather lounge and chaise and warmed by a large wall-mounted log fireplace. The living space is completed by a host of modern amenities, such as a 65-inch 3D satellite TV, Blu Ray player and movies, Denon amp, and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
If you choose to stay at The Edge, you’ll enjoy a spectacular view on the outside deck complete with outdoor furniture. And outside, you’ll find a gas BBQ, the garage, and the trail that leads to a private picnic area.
The split-level villa, The Vue, is equally sumptuous and perfect for one couple. It features an open-plan layout that doesn’t take away from the intimate ambience of villa. Its elevated position and glass doors offer unobstructed views of the surrounding area, and the wrap-around deck connects the outdoors to the indoor space. To further enjoy the beautiful scenery of Hunter Valley, the outdoor area has a BBQ and seating for al fresco dining.
Inside, you’ll enjoy a host of deluxe amenities, such as plush king-size bed and a sunken spa bath area that connects the bedroom and living areas. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to prepare meals.
Another split-level villa that features an open-plan layout is The Ridge. It offers lovely views of the surrounding area from the huge L-shaped deck, as well as from every room in the villa. An inviting, pillow-topped king-size bed sits in the middle of the elevated bedroom, just the right spot to enjoy the outdoor scenery.
The Terrace, just like The Vue, is a split-level villa with a large open ground and spacious living area. Decadence comes in spades at this Cedars Mount View Villa. Your bedroom’s centrepiece is the ultra-comfortable king-size bed draped in the finest of linen. A luxurious sunken spa bath is the perfect wind-down activity at the end of the day.
The kitchen is fully furnished with a dishwasher, microwave oven, Nespresso U Milk coffee machine, and four-burner gas range. For your entertainment the villa comes with an LCD TV, iPod dock, DVD player and library, and surround-sound system. Like the previous villas, The Terrace also comes with a gas BBQ for outdoor cooking and grilling.
Rounding up the Cedars Mount View villa collection is The Gums, which differs from the other accommodation options here as it can house two couples travelling together. It has two bedrooms that come with comfortable queen-size beds and separate bathrooms. Both rooms open to private decks, but the main bedroom has direct access to the spa bath for two.
As for leisure pursuits, at Cedars Mount View, you’re spoilt for choice. Enjoy sumptuous lunches and romantic dinners at the Bistro Molines located just 8 minutes from Cedars. Tour a few of Hunter Valley’s 150 wineries through a Winery Tour from Two Fat Blokes. Or take in the scenic valley atop a horse at the beautiful Molly Morgan Range.
Feel like a star with a helicopter ride to your dinner reservations or to an event at the Hope Estate or Tempus Two. You’ll be picked up right outside your villa and then returned via a private car. Or savour a 3-hour ride in a Victorian horse-drawn carriage as you soak in the beautiful scenery, tour the wineries in Pokolbin, and enjoy the gourmet picnic and champagne for two.
All told, Cedars Mount View is the romantic, serene escape you’ve always wanted without straying too far from civilization. In fact, downtown Sydney is just 2 hours away.
