We love travelling, fine food and wine. Relaxing on Dangar and watching the famous Dangar Island sunsets! Escaping to the Hunter Valley for weekends is a real treat. We get much pleasure seeing our guest enjoying the boathouse and the charms of Dangar Island. Recently we have listed Villa Bubbles, Cypress Lake ,Pokolbin, Hunter Valley which I took much delight in renovating and styling.The positive feedback we have had to date makes it all worth while. We are always happy to answer guests inquiries and special requests. We are generally on site at The Hamptons Shack (just up the stairs) but not at Villa Bubbles Cypress Lake Pokolbin Hunter Valley. I am ex merchant banker who retrained as a naturopath and now run an online business Naturopath Vitamins from home. My husband Warren is an IT Project Management specialist. We are both born in NZ. We love interacting with people from all cultures. My motto in life is treat others as you expect to be treated.
