Black Star Kangaroo Valley

Black Star is a boutique luxury accommodation in Kangaroo Valley. Pass through the gates onto the 5 acre residence, and the drama continues, as woodland peels away to reveal the house itself; an instantly grand, yet contemporary take on a traditional black barn, framed against arguably the most iconic view of Barrengarry Mountain the area has to offer.

Step inside, and the theatre continues; thanks to Black Stars fabulously high ceilings that encase an entire wall of 6 metre-high picture frame windows that presents the sweeping valley below and mountains beyond as a single, breathtaking image.

For a dwelling this bold and rugged against the skyline, you will be amazed at the intimacy and softness of its interior design: from oxblood leather couch to its oversize blue velvet sofafrom cool concrete coffee table to the luxurious marble kitchen bench Black Star presents as a master class in contrasting texture and mercurial elegance.

At the centre of the main living room, a Chevalier glass box log fire anchors the room and creates a natural focal point, as well as a stunning visual on long, cool nights.

Throughout the kitchen, you will notice that no expense has been spared, including a top of the range SMEG three-oven cooker. The same lack of compromise extends to the dwellings two large and luxurious, tiled bathrooms, complete with under floor heating.

In the master bedroom, as well as your own, personal log fire, you are spoilt further by a stand-alone bath, perfectly positioned to let you relax as you take in the stunning views across the front lawn to the mountains beyond. In addition, another 2 generous and similarly opulent bedrooms, as well as an extra mezzanine bedroom for additional guests, guarantee that a full house at Black Star, never feels like a crowded house.

Black Star has been thoughtfully designed to maximize the beauty of the valleys contrasting seasons: from the snug warmth of its iconic central fireplace on a cold winter night, to its ingenious bi-fold doors that open up the interior space to the wraparound exterior deck, allowing a perfect spot to both bbq and dine outside on a balmy, summer night, whilst taking in the breathtaking spectacle of the mountain beyond.

A recently added swimming pool is the perfect addition to this stunning home.

Words genuinely do not do this unique property justice. Linger over the attached images and youll certainly get a sense of why Black Star is such a sought-after destination, but to fully appreciate its beauty, we would strongly suggest you book early, whilst room is still available.

We can arrange a private Chef for your stay or even a massage, please speak with us when booking.

We stayed for only two nights and wished we could stay forever. The house is amazing, the beds comfy, everything you could want in a beautiful house with a wonderful location. Cant wait till our next visit!! Black Star is definitely one of a kind. The surrounding area is just beautiful and worth wandering around the shops. Great coffee found at Kangaroo Valley deli.

Black Star amazing

I took my partner here for a birthday getaway. It was absolutely stunning. When you enter the property the view blows you away. The kitchen was a delight to cook in and we had everything that we needed. We were happy that there was aircon as it gets hot in the valley. The property was located not far from town and from some fabulous swimming spots. I'd stay here again.


This property is truly stunning. Amazing views and privacy- a perfect relaxing base to explore such a beautiful part of the world.


Know the area well. However, never stayed at Black Star. Excellent views. Great flow to house. Highly rated

Stunning Views

Situated on barrengarry mountain in kangaroo valley, our designer barn, @blackstarcountryescape is proving impossible to leave. featuring the most luscious interiors and state-of-the-art furnishings, ‘black star’ is truly a unique and luxurious escape. grand windows and doors provide uninterrupted views of the mountains, mist and sky. ‘black star’ is an oversized barn that is unlike anything we’ve ever seen or experienced. it is a feast for the senses. the locals could not have been more welcoming and are so thankful for all the visitors coming through their little villages following an incredibly tough (almost) year starting with fires ravaging their lives, followed by travel bans. now is the time to escape and help where we can!

Twinkle, twinkle, black star!

We had a wonderful stay. The views are incredible, the house is amazing and the kitchen is a joy to cook in.

Beautiful, relaxing, luxe.

Lovely stay at the property. Beautifully styled, quiet spot out of town but not so far that it's difficult to reach quickly. Gorgeous views and fun to see kangaroos bounding past as you shower!

Great Location - Stunning Home!

This home is perfect for a group, whether for a family getaway or weekend away with friends. Along with the breathtakingly beautiful location, the home’s amazing features from the bathtub in the main bedroom suite to the new installed pool and stunning art collection really set this property apart. A stay at Black Star is highly recommended!

Fantastic stay

Highly recommend this lovely property! The living and dining surrounds a beautiful fireplace which everyone can enjoy. The kitchen is modern and the beds are 5 star. It’s a must stay if you’re traveling to KV.

Amazing, Relaxing and Modern

What a great place - exactly what it promises in the pictures. We had a family long weekend celebration for my mother's birthday and while there is plenty to do, we found ourselves cosy in the house by the fire just relaxing and chatting. Soul reviving. We will be back. :)

Just lovely

The property is beautiful. Exceptional views across Kangaroo Valley. Extremely comfortable, understated luxury. Quiet landscape, but only a quick drive into town for some action. We look forward to returning with our family again soon.


Wow factor on arrival and for the whole weekend -it was special. When a house is so carefully and thoughtfully designed, it makes for an extremely relaxing and wonderful holiday.

Stunning property

Blackstar was amazing. Perfect for a family weekend away. Love the front lawn, perfect length for a Sand Wedge and loved the fully stocked timber store. A couple of things to plan for: bring extra dishwashing tablets, bin liners and paper towel. The starter pack didn't stretch to a long weekend of food, wine and festivities. The other thing, we didn't realise was that one of the bedrooms (the mezzanine) is open to the master bedroom. Not an issue to us as my 80 year old parents were probably not going to get up to any mischief anyway, but worth noting when you are working out who haswhatrooms. When we go back with friends, we'll probably consider it a 3 bedroom place and leave thekidsathome. Highly recommend this place. Enjoyed it and had loads of fun.

Amazing Place

We had such a great time! The beds were so comfortable & linen was lovely. Very lovely easy House. Really enjoyed it.


Absolutely superb love it! Great property for a family with grown children. Everyone had their own space... Everything was lovely! Will definitely return!

Love it!

Staying at Blackstar in Kangaroo Valley is nothing short of sensational! As soon as you walk in the front door the house oozes beautifully designed interiors and we felt like we were in a 6-star country home where no expense was spared to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We enjoyed the large entertaining desk, the massive kitchen which was great for cooking for a large group, the open fireplace, the expansive views of the luscious valley, the herb garden and all the special little touches which made our stay a wonderful experience. Very close to the actual town, great bushwalks and other family activities. We will definitely be back!


We have been to Black Star three times now as a family in summer, spring and winter. Its super stylish, open and just welcoming. Its exactly like the photos. The beds are super comfy and the master bedroom is a treat, we just love how the whole room opens up to the incredible views and changing landscape for your morning coffee. We all love lounging on the outdoor furniture and eating outdoors day and night. Our stay in winter was a wonderland with the huge fire place set right in the middle of the open living space. The kitchen functions perfectly, love the island bench, the main living space really bring us all together to relax. We love the fact that you cant see any other homes, that's the way we like it for our country escape. Kangaroo Valley has so many activities to do that keep the week fun, with beautiful swimming holes, long bush walks, picnic spots by the river and we just love the kangaroos out front. Also my favourite, the stunning drive over the mountain to Berry for a day of shopping. The hosts have gone to an enormous effort to make the exterior and interior breathtaking, with the natural beauty of the land around the house and the elegant modern open interior. Our stay as a family has been perfect every time, not forgetting the thriving vegetable gardens which make cooking a treat. We cant wait to come back, cannot recommend this place enough. Thanks for an amazing time.

The Ultimate Getaway!

Turning into Paddington Lane , behind two big black gates you enter into a 5 acre sanctuary. Black Star is nestled in lush rolling hills with wombats and Kangaroos making the occasional appearance. Black Star sounds menacing but beyond the black colorbond faade is a warm sensual home which has been tastefully designed. The professional kitchen was to die for and a real focal point of the house. This house is designed for entertaining. An overflowing veggie patch next to the kitchen was full of herbs and greens which turned dishes of even an average cook like me into meals full flavour. The quietness at first was such a contrast to my usual busy life, but after one night at Blackstar I relaxed into the stillness and felt a wonderful sense of calm come over me. The main bedroom was incredibly comfortable and waking to the view of Kangaroos grazing in the back garden was a spectacular thing to witness. Evenings spent sitting on the Deck in the comfy loungers, talking with my family and wondering at the nature around us created memories that we will treasure forever. A couple of coldish nights was an excuse to light the main Fire place which roared and created a wonderful atmosphere, Blackstar would be an absolute joy in the colder months aswell as the summer. The couches were the comfiest I have ever sat in and many an afternoon siesta was had in them. If you love coffee a recent addition to the valley is Bettys. Run by ex-single origin owners, Gavin and Martine they create the best coffee and food that you have ever experienced, a must for anyone staying in The Valley.
