“Second excellent visit”
Reviewed 18 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Almost a year to the day we made it back from the other side of the world.
Mandalay and Villa 2 was just as brilliant as the last time.
44 degrees on the weekend and we were SO pleased we had a private pool to dip in and out of.
If you are thinking of accommodation in the Hunter then you definitely MUST give these Villas try.
Thanks Simon & Toni for being brilliant hosts again.
Excellent in every sense.

“Fantastic stay at luxury Mandalay Villa”
Reviewed 25 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed for 6 nights around Christmas. When we drove "the road to Mandalay" we felt this is a special place and the moment we entered the Villa we didn't want to leave!! Toni and Simon are wonderful hosts with attention to detail. The sophisticated villa was spacious, very clean, with comfy beds and a beautiful private pool with perfect temperature. Fantastic place to relax and unwind. Thanks Toni&Simon for sharing your place with us.

“Perfect getaway location ”

This was an incredible weekend, firstly Toni and Simon are wonderful hosts who make you feel very welcome but also leave you alone to enjoy your stay knowing you can call on them for anything. Welcome bottle of bubbles and fantastic breakfast hamper awaiting our arrival.
The villa is stunning and set up so that you want for nothing, very well supplied kitchen.
We used the BBQ one night too.
It's so quiet and clean and the heated pool with spa is simply magnificent!!
Plenty of towels, bathrobes, slippers and molten brown complimentary toiletries.
Disabled facilities available which I was impressed with.
We had the perfect stay here and only 20 minute drive into the heart of the hunter valley.
Thank you, we will be back.

“Mandalay Villas Are Heaven On Earh”
Reviewed 4 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This is the 2nd Time we have been to Mandalay Villas and We WILL be back again and again over the years...Attention to detail and great hospitality by the hosts, Simon & Toni is just perfection. The accommodation is magnificent and having your own private plunge pool is just fantastic. Mandalay Villas beats all the big places for accommodation in the Hunter Valley hands down. I cannot recommend Mandalay Villas Highly Enough !!!!!!!!! Its Great and Its Fantastic... Had a Great Holiday There in The Hunter At Mandalay Villas...
