“Modern house in a quiet and peaceful location”

person found this review helpful

The Hideout is located outside Wauchope and close to Port Macquarie. Handy for shopping and sightseeing, but very rural in outlook and tranquility. The house is very modern with a functional kitchen, pantry stocked with staples, and a coffee pod machine. Bedding was very comfortable and there is a large screen entertainment system, and free wi-fi. We did not use the pool and spa shared with the host family, although we were made welcome to do so. It was great to lie in bed at night and listen to ...... total silence!

“Beautiful place for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed February 6, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed for one week at The Hideout and loved it. The location is perfect, out of town but close enough to go into Wauchope or to drive to Port Macquarie. The cottage is perfect, very well thought out, plenty of room and so comfortable. My kids (aged 14 & 8) loved the pool (just a shame it rained a lot during our stay) but they made the most of it when they could swim. We walked down to the river which was lovely for some fishing. Enjoying a quiet drink on the verandah of an afternoon was so relaxing, we didn't want to leave. A big thankyou to Sue & Clyde who made us feel so welcome and sharing their beautiful peace of paradise with us. We have stayed at a lot of different holiday houses and this is by far the best, I would highly recommend The Hideout, loved it.

When we arrived we were welcomed with perfect homemade wood fire pizza's in the best pizza oven ever seen. The kids were welcomed with open hands by Sue and Clyde which allowed our children to be kids from playing in the beautiful pool to guided tour of the resident aeroplanes. The property had everything required for a young family which allowed a awesome but inexpensive family holiday. Looking forward to our return visit in the very near future. Thanks again Sue and Clyde for being such great hosts

“Ticks All The Boxes & More.”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed for just a couple of days in Sept 2014 and were so impressed with 'The Hideout'. Sue and her family are lovely people and made us extremely welcome during our stay. How rare it is to find such gracious and congenial hosts. The Hideout itself has been meticulously planned and designed for comfort and relaxation with everything you could need available. It is by far the best set up I have ever seen in ALL the holiday rental properties I have stayed at over the years. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed at their choice in staying here.

Our normally well behaved 10 month old Frenchie just loved the space to run around and check out the birds and cows. I was apprehensive about him following Sue about and his over friendliness, but they took it all in their stride and welcomed him as much as us.

Loved the peace and quiet, the walks, the beautiful sunsets. I do wish we had the time to stay longer.

“An amazing retreat in the hinterland of Port Macquarie”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 for a stay in December 2012

My Wife and I stayed here for ten days as a getaway just prior to Christmas. The location was perfect; close enough to Port Macquarie to enjoy the sights and a night out but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of a country setting. The views here are amazing, and we enjoyed waking up every morning having a leisurely coffee on the huge deck, looking out over the vista. The house itself was a home away from home. Beautifully styled with a stocked pantry of snacks, teas and expresso coffee. The hosts are great and have really gone the extra mile to make guests feel welcome. We'll be staying here again for sure and have already recommended the Hideout to a bunch of our friends.
