READ NO FURTHER I am one of those people who reads ALL of the reviews and tosses up multiple places before booking in somewhere to stay... I did this here and I AM SO GLAD I PICKED BLOCK EIGHT. I surprised my partner with a getaway for his birthday and we have been up to the Hunter many times, but this was the first time at Block Eight and are already planning to book in again! We loved the massive land and the secludedness of each of the villas to ensure relaxation and privacy. The villa was wonderfully decorated and Todd and Jeff went to such detail to ensure we had everything we needed - including breakfast, coffee, snacks (even homemade cupcakes!), movies, books, games, they even provided all shower necessities including mosquito repellent (a big win for me personally!) Even when we had a small issue with the wifi connection, Jeff came to our rescue promptly and courteously to ensure we were back on in minutes. The farm is absolutely gorgeous - we had kangaroos, peacocks, and chickens at our doorstep, and a walk down to visit the pig and sheep was beautiful. I definitely highly recommend Block Eight and can't wait to get back there myself! Thank you Todd and Jeff!

I can’t fault anything about our stay! From email communication with the guys prior, to an absolutely beautiful and private stay. They provided so many extras. A beautiful breaky to prepare on the bbq, wine, a stack of fire wood. Making it one of the nicest stay we have experience!

Perfect place to de-stress

Pros: The tranquility, cleanness, colours, animals, space...
Spacious villa away from the noise and lights. We had a really good weekend at Block Eight and would recommend it to family and friends anytime!
