"Lovely little cottage in a very peaceful setting. Had all the amenities you require and a lovely wood burning fire. There is no WiFi in the cottage but after the owner told us how much it would cost I can totally understand that and anyway you go there to relax. You occasionally could get one bar on the phone. When we arrived the receptionist was very helpful and gave us a run down of the facilities and what to do if we required further assistance. There was afternoon tea of scones, jam and cream in the fridge and also a breakfast hamper with a choice of continental or cooked breakfast. Montville was literally less than 5 minutes drive away if you needed anything. Would recommend for a long weekend away."
Karen Hughes - August 2022
"Warm, cozy and welcoming. The cabin had everything you could need for a relaxing weekend away including breakfast hamper and Nespresso machine. Fully equipped kitchen. Spa bath for 2 overlooking lush greenery. 5 min drive to Montville. Jack and Jess were friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend you make this your next weekend getaway."

"What a wonderful 2 days away. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Accommodation was in a beautiful setting, super cute and clean. We loved our stay and will definitely be back."
Carman Loubster - July 2022
"Amazing Romantic place …..We originally visited Hunchy back in 2003 , and returned for another great experience. It’s all the finer details that tick all the boxes - fluffy robes, stocked fire place , scones with jam & cream , rose by the softest bed, chocolates & breakfast items ready to go ( & the list goes on). Sitting in the hot spa listening to the rain in the forest outside all afternoon was so therapeutic & we didn’t want to leave. Thanks again Hunchy you met all expectations & more once again , we won’t be leaving it so long to return next time."
Jen Lowry - August 2022
"Let me start off by saying how lovely Jess is, when I arrived I was greeted by a lovely welcoming smile and a little tour of the place. She couldn’t have been any nicer. I was a lone traveller coming here and while it’s aimed for for couples to unwind, I had a beautiful time by myself.
Once I got brought my bags in and had a look around the room I was amazed at the little finishing touches that they did. Truly incredible hospitality. The complimentary breakfast was amazing!! Eggs, bacon and toast everyday babyyy ?? yummo!! Like name somewhere else that provides groceries?! I doubt you’d find one. Oh and fresh scones on your arrival!! Um hello YUM!!
One thing to note is that the Phone reception is non existent, so pack some dvds or books if you plan to stay in for any length of time.. Or do it the old fashion way and talk to your significant other! It’s so lovely and quiet with just the sound of trees moving and the creek flowing in the background.
There is free wifi outside of the reception and you can get phone data in the car park… So if you desperately need to contact the outside world there are options. It was extremely clean and well kept, the facilities were fantastic, staff were lovely and the location is perfect, far enough away yet it’s extremely close to the Montville main strip where all the shops are located.
While it was a little pricey as a single traveller, I thought f*ck it, I’ll see how it is and oh boy it was the best time away I’ve had in a while. I cannot wait to go back.. Hopefully with a partner next time! I cannot recommend these guys enough, it’s the perfect couples retreat. I felt extremely welcomed which was very humbling."

"Thank you so much for a beautiful three-year wedding anniversary! Ali and Denis you are so friendly and thoughtful, your food was delicious and the cabin was perfectly relaxing with the spa, fireplace and cushions. The possums are adorable and the waterfall was enchanting – well worth the climb! Thank you again and hopefully we’ll be back again soon."
James and Rebecca
"What a wonderful place to spend our 15th anniversary. This is our sixth time back to Hunchy Hideaway and will not be our last. It’s the perfect place to have some quality time together, away from our busy life at home. We always enjoy it here; it’s the ideal getaway for us, even if it is just for a few days. We always find it really tough on the last day, we never want to leave! Thanks Ali and Denis for all the fine touches. See you next year."
Rochelle and Paul
"To celebrate our ninth wedding anniversary we once again made the trip to Hunchy Hideaway. As we meandered through the beautiful countryside and winding roads we felt the tension and the stress disappear. Our second visit to Hunchy was even better than the first! Thanks again for the ‘little touches' that make a night here so romantic, relaxing and enjoyable. See you again."

"We were lucky enough for it to rain on our wedding anniversary and the natural bubbling stream flowed past our cabin. The sound of the rain on the roof was great. Feeding the possums and turkeys was just lovely. Totally relaxing and we will recommend it to our friends and colleagues. Just wish we could have stayed longer than three nights."
