Dee Dahs Cottage

Lovingly restored & beautifully presented original cottage in the heart of Kangaroo Valley. The space is warm and welcoming, stunningly maintained.

There is an outdoor HOT SPA with magnificent views over the river and green pastures adds an extra charm to the stay. You will walk in the front door and feel instantly relaxed. Gorgeous indoor and outdoor entertaining areas to relax or enjoy a glass of wine. A wood fired heater to spend cosy winter nights and fully airconditioned for those lazy summer days.

The home has 2 queen bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, there is a claw foot cast iron bath in one of the bathrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen and laundry with oven, stove, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.

WIFI is available and you can utilise Chromecast to connect your own Netflix /Stan etc. account.

A BBQ is also available for you to enjoy and maybe cook up some breakfast after gathering fresh eggs in the morning from the hens house. Then add some fresh herbs from the established garden.

The little cottage is not suitable for very young children as so close to the fast moving river-thank you for understanding.

We had a great break here, perfect spot to unwind. Great table tennis table with plenty balls and bats for everyone. Our dogs loved it too. We tried so hard to spot Herbie the Wombat but had no luck. We will definitely be back when the family comes to visit. Lekker rustig!!!!

Best Spot to Have Sundowners and watch Kangaroos graze

My family and I had seven glorious nights in Berrima at the Summerset Lodge. The house was very tastefully appointed, the grounds were lovely, the birdlife something to behold and the entire experience was something we would look forward to repeating.

A lovely country villa

It was easy and friendly to organise the stay. The home is well suited to a large party with plenty of common space, including an outdoor garden seating area.

Gorgeous home, very clean and well maintained

What a great place to spend a relaxing a family weekend. The house is beautifully peaceful and open with a wrap-around balcony. Wild Rose Cottage exceeded our expectations - we will definitely be making a return.

The perfect getaway house

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

A stunning home in a beautiful location. The bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas were all beautifully set up and luxurious. The pool, the fire pit, the views were all perfect . Thank you

Beautiful luxurious getaway

Thanks so much for having us stay. It felt incredibly like home and had such great touches making it extremely convenient like proper coffee machine, board games, Hairdryers and even a lovely fireplace! Great location near the main centre of town. Even dog friendly! Sparkling clean. Clear about instructions and fantastic communication, very efficient. Such a great place to just relax. Definitely would stay there again!

Great Location

Braeside is a beautiful house set in a stunning location in Kangaroo Valley. The house is so well set up and made for the perfect weekend getaway with the family. We will be back


We had a great stay. Somerset is set in quiet surroundings, with a pretty garden and plenty of birdlife flying around. Inside, the house is spacious with large practical rooms, and a good kitchen which is well-equipped. We all found the beds very comfy as are the various sofas, and the main TV is very good with Netflicks etc. What we really liked was the number of doors leading outside (just about one to every room) so it was easy to get through-breezes during a very hot and humid snap.

Very comfortable home

The weekend was great. The house was spectacular with plenty of space indoors and out to enjoy the weather or simply stay in. Great location being walking distance to everything. As it worked out, Berrima had everything we needed i.e. cafes, pub, great shopping and walking tracks. Will definitely come back for a nice easy weekend.

Fun times in Berrima

Perfect weekend away in beautiful surroundings. Almost everything has been thought of here, beds extremely comfortable, kitchen well equiped. Sitting on the back porch drinking a cup of tea whilst listening to the cicada concert in fortissimo was an uplifting experience!

Great Getaway

The property was just perfect in a very quaint, authentic Australian village.Everything about the property was perfect ,especially the beds!.We were there for my sons wedding at Bendooley Estate which was just around the corner and we felt so at home .In fact, we wished it were our home! Thankyou to the owners for making it so warm and inviting!

We will come again!

Booked through Travel Your Style and they got it right. Wonderful layout with a good kitchen for cooking, great outdoor fireplace and entertaining area. Clean and lovely and secluded. We would definitely come back again!

Wonderful getaway

The cottage is wonderful for a family vacation. Well appointed and comfortable beds. Great mix of indoor and outdoor lounging

Wonderful Accomodation - far enough away, yet close enough to tow

Wonderful, wish we could have stayed longer


Fenton’s Run was the perfect venue for a weekend get away with our young family and grand parents. It has plenty of bedrooms with ample space for old and young alike to sit back and relax. The kids had heaps of fun with the dogs, playing in the paddock and feeding the horses. The scenery was stunning with misty mornings and beautiful sunsets.

Great family weekend

Our family recently stayed at Annie’s Barn at Rowan Farm and we loved every moment. The accommodation was perfect - cosy, clean and had all we needed for a long weekend stay. Greg and Roxy were incredibly generous of their home, time, knowledge and we’re so friendly. We were invited to their bonfires, to walk around the beautiful property, to pat and feed the alpacas and to watch the sheep get their injections, which our 2 year old son loved watching. Days later he is still talking about going back to the farm, which we have promised to do.

The best little farm stay in the Highlands

The house was just gorgeous, very well maintained and clean. We loved the space and all the animals, and how quiet it was. We highly recommend Moosewood.


It was ideal for us as we were first timers at the folk festival. It was a delightful surprise from the moment we walked in, til we left. We all would come back again.

Yes! Just what we wanted....

The apartment was really comfortable and hanging out in the village was fun.

Really nice visit

Superb house, amazing view, peaceful surroundings, incredible outdoor bath. We’ll be back !!


Two nights away from the city to escape to the beautiful Kangaroo Valley. The cabin was spotless and welcoming. Location on the golf course was perfect- watching the kangaroos on the grass as the mist rose up the hill.

Peaceful and relaxing stay

We did enjoy our stay at Fentons Run. We especially LOVED the size of the dinning table. Great for a girls weekend away...

Great weekend away

We had a wonderful family weekend at Rayfields. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. The property is just beautiful and the views spectacular.

Great weekend

We had a blast at Charlies. We were there for a murder mystery dinner and the dining table was perfect. The beds are very comfy and Charlie is a great host. We also found the house very warm!

Would definitely recommend!

My hubby and I needed a little getaway from all the hustle & bustle of Sydney and what a place to come to! The minute we walked into Nevertire Cottage we knew it was going to be a relaxing few days away! Nice & clean, amazing views from the back deck and loved spending our afternoons in front of the fire pit! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a little 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.

5 acre Sanctuary!

Braeside is a beautiful property, we had a wonderful 3 day family holiday enjoying the grounds, the pool and the local wildlife. We would love to visit again, this really is the perfect spot to escape and relax!

Stunning property

Old Boys Time Out Thursday evening to Sunday morning for 5 over 60 year olds. The accommodation was perfect. Rooms, kitchen, dining room, bar, pool table outside facility and BBQ. Not to mention the abundance of firewood, firelighter etc provided by the owner. The place was clean on arrival, Charlie put fans in each room. We ate, drank, chatted, played music into the wee hours having a ball. Thanks Charlie and Co.

A great place for boys

Thank you to the team at Kangaroo Valley Escapes for making the booking process so easy and for your professional service. We highly recommend The Stix to anyone looking for an exclusive high end break - you won't be disappointed!

Perfection in Kangaroo Valley

We had a wonderful stay at Ryder's Creek. The house was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. It rained the entire time we were there, but the spacious house provided ample room to enjoy each other's company. The fireplaces were an added bonus. Check-in/check-out was easy and great communication with the property managers. Highly recommended.

Wonderful stay at Ryder's Creek

We stayed 3 nights. The whole family enjoyed very much! Plenty of room for boys to ride their bicycles. Good location,Short drive to everywhere. highly recommended!

Beautiful property

My husband and I were blown away at our recent stay here. We could not get over how wonderful the place was and in such a convenient location. We will definitely be coming back to stay!

Will definitely return!!

Great little stay, enjoyed every minute of it. Perfect location and was even left a bottle of wine. Would highly recommend!

Amazing property

We had a delightful stay at this beautiful manor. Great living space with modern amenities, comfy beds and a great outdoor area. Place was a treat to stay at and we will be returning next time we're in that neck of the woods :)

Wonderful place

The photos do not do the views and location justice - not a soul in sight and a spectacular view of the mountains. It feels very remote and calming. Nicely styled, comfy beds and lovely fires. Jane - KV was a wonderful help and great communicator. Highly recommend!

This place is incredible!

Wow! What a great home for a few days away. Only a few minutes away from KV and all that it offers, but you feel far away from it all when staying at Braeside. We'll be back

Peaceful getaway, with everything you need

We had a very comfortable stay at Kookaburra Hill. It was the perfect size for 6 people with all the amenities we needed and a lovely pool and stunning rose garden. Only complaint is the bedrooms are too small!

Great Weekend

We had a wonderful 5 x day stay at Budgong Lodge. The Lodge is stunning, fit out with all the mod cons and luxurious soft furnishings. A gorgeous open fire, ample wood and kindling as well as heaters in every room made it very cosy. A beautiful big deck to sit out on and enjoy the peace and quite and heaps of privacy. 3 horses reside on the property which makes for a wonderful experience for anyone visiting with children - a truly relaxing home away from home.

Gorgeous Lodge for a peaceful getaway

Was a great experience. Perfect little spot to relax. Amazing scenery. Was just what we needed

Perfect little getaway

Our group of 11 people thorough enjoyed the stay at Fentons Run in High Range NSW. It was a perfect place to relax and share a memorable few days amongst friends. The house accommodated us very well, it was very clean, big and comfortable. The location was easy to get to, the farm views amazing! The booking process was easy and Jane at Kangaroo Valley Escapes made the process simple. Thank you for having us. Definitely recommend this place!

Enjoyed Fenton's Run!

Absolutely beautiful setting, amazing mountain views and so much space. Fantastic attention to detail throughout the house. The softest cosiest linens, comfy indoor and outdoor settings. We loved the log burning fire and the huge outdoor marble table. There were even kangaroos in the neighbours garden when we arrived! We didnt want to leave and cant wait to come back.

What a fabulous stay!

Mary W from BIRCHGROVE, NSW recommends this vacation rental Our family of 9 adults enjoyed a wonderful weekend at The Sticks KV. There were so many positives to our experience there - from the amazing architecture of the house, its amenities (in particular the 5 large bedrooms each with its own bathroom), the roomy shared spaces for enjoying board games, PlayStation, family meals, TV, the well appointed kitchen, views from the decks etc. there was so much to marvel at and enjoy. We will definitely be back!


Great location, spacious, beautiful clean apartment with everything you need for a weekend away! Very comfortable cosy beds, but pillows firm and high. We would definitely stay there again!

Great location

Fantastic place and hidden away in a peaceful valley. A perfect weekend escape - the home had everything we needed and we loved opening up the doors and enjoying the wildlife and sounds of nature whilst we ate outside at the outdoor table.


Abundant in every way - comfortable bedding, plenty of lounges inside and outside, lovely artwork and garden sculptures, kitchen pantry well stocked (although we bought all our own needs), a real coffee machine with coffee, so many kitchen cupboards! Wonderful veggie garden and chooks and the most gorgeous highland cows and 6 calves we've ever seen. A lovely 3 nights for 3 generations to enjoy.

Wonderful, indulgent get-away

An idyllic short stay away from bustling city life was perfect for relaxation. Beautiful wrap around verandah with views of garden, wildlife and escarpment. Extremely well equipped.

Peaceful oasis

Great location. Fabulous kitchen. Beautiful views. Awesome family place

Little piece of paradise

Went away to Lemon Tree Cottage for a Girls Weekend and absolutely loved it. The house was beautifully furnished and the beds were AMAZING! The coffee machine and wine were lovely extras that didn’t go unnoticed.

Beautiful cottage

Spent the weekend at Braeside for a friends 50th and had such a great time. The property is private, peaceful and has the most beautiful views of the valley. The house itself is stunning, everything has been thought of to ensure we had a comfortable, warm and memorable stay. We'd love to come back in summer to be able to enjoy the pool!

Peaceful, luxurious property

A group of us have just stayed at Fenton’s Run. Great house-well set up renovated stables,plenty of room, great dining table, large bar with pool table and lovely outdoor area with fire and one inside. Charlie the owner very welcoming. Will be coming back!

Great place!

Loved the house. It was beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable, and clean. The only negative was that the bedroom walls don’t go up all the way which means you can hear the house guest noises. All good when it’s only adults (assuming no snorers) but not ideal when there are children.

A Grand Design home!

We loved our weekend stay at Ryders Creek - the perfect family escape to Kangaroo Valley. The house was stunning and catered to every comfort - the interiors and furnishings a standout. My daughter loved collecting fresh eggs from the chook house and exploring down near the creek. Cant wait for our next stay.

The perfect country getaway

Kookaburra Hill was everything we could have hoped for. Beautiful house, amazing gardens full of the most beautiful roses. The pool was used every day despite being a tad chilly. Great location, very easy walk to the the main part of KV. Couldn’t fault it, in fact slightly in love with Kookaburra Hill!


Stayed here with my partner for her birthday in October 2020. The cottage was absolutely beautiful and had all the necessary amenities. Although it was quite windy due to the higher altitude, managed to enjoy the bath and light a campfire!

Beautiful accomodation tucked in the heart of Southern Highlands

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.

Wonderful big yard, fantastic pool and beautiful charming cottage. Felt very private and secluded but an easy walk to town.

Lovely, peaceful

My friend and I stayed here with our 4 kids ages 8 and 6yrs old and had a ball. The kids loved the farm and spent hours roaming around on their bikes and playing with the lovely dogs. It was such fun for them to feed the horses and visit the alpacas. Charlie is a great host, relaxed and welcoming and nothing was really a problem. For us the house had everything we needed and more. We will definitely return. The kids already miss Stuart the jack Russell and Lexie the ‘curly’ teddy bear dog. Thanks Charlie!

A real delight

It's a great location for a getaway out of the city of you are looking for some peace and quite. Would be great in the colder months with the indoor for place. Has a great kitchen to do all your cooking no need for takeaway.

Peaceful getaway

This was a surprise birthday getaway and everyone who stayed had a great time and loved it. The location is perfect for relaxing and switching off, connecting with one another. Charlie is a great host, checking in each day everything was ok and ensuring we had enough firewood. The entertainment area is great especially with the pool table and bar and there are shops nearby if needed. I would love to stay here again.

Relaxing Getaway

Very comfortable and beautiful experience. Would 100% stay again and recommend to others. Thanks so much for the great experience and communication. Really enjoyed it!

Comfortable & Beautiful

This place was stunning in every way! From the house to the property to all the inclusions. The owners have a phenomenal house here. The kitchen was very well equiped, the linen and towels were fantastic. Kangaroo Valley Escapes made the booking and arrival process easy. We had an amazing time, thank you.

Highly recommend

The property is on a central location right opposite the General Coffee and Store so it was very convenient for breakfast. I wasn’t planning to prepare meals in the Leaves unit, and unless you can get away with making everything in a microwave oven or toaster, I discourage such plans. The place is secure and spacious, well looked after, air-conditioned in every room as well as fitted with ceiling fans if you prefer that alternative, modern and tastefully decorated. Anyone would enjoy their stay!

Myrtle Tree Lodge is a fantastic spot to stay in Kangaroo Valley

Well appointed and very comfortable property. Perfect for a few days to escape the city living. Beautifully presented home with planet of good instructions and directions making everything easy to operate. Property management team were great to communicate with when booking and the clear arrival information make accessing the property a breeze. Highly recommended

Paddington HideAway

We had a wonderful time at womberroo for a girls weekend. The house is stunning inside and out and the view is spectacular from so many areas of the property. The house is well stocked with pantry items, crockery, extra blankets. We loved that there was a hot spa, but would have liked if the temperature was a few degrees warmer. Wood for the wood fired oven is not included so byo wood for the pizza oven if you intend to use it. Highly recommend this property and can’t wait to stay again!

Perfect weekend for girls weekend

Perfect place to escape the rat race for quality family time

Picturesque & Peaceful!

Our stay was not long enough which means we will be back. I was in alpaca heaven. These animals are just beautiful and made my stay the best day ever, I love them . The place was clean, comfortable and homely. I felt safe and warm.

Clean comfortable and safe

I loved the place. I could live in that house and the view was serene, peaceful and made me feel happy and rested

A nice holiday in the best country setting

Lemon Tree Cottage is a perfect spot if youre seeking utter quiet, wildlife and comfort. Take your binoculars for birdwatching and stargazing. Thanks for our lovely stay in the bush.

Lemon Tree Cottage is a perfect spot

Amazing accommodation and wonderful location! We had a great time there and loved every second of it!

Amazing accommodation!

My friend and I stayed here with our 4 kids ages 8 and 6yrs old and had a ball. The kids loved the farm and spent hours roaming around on their bikes and playing with the lovely dogs.

We will definitely return. The kids already miss Stuart the jack Russell and Lexie the ‘curly’ teddy bear dog. Thanks Charlie!

A real delight

We had an extended family weekend together at Fentons run. There was lots of room to run around outside (for the kids and young at heart) and inside for when the weather turned wet, or the sun went down. As others have noted, the phone reception is almost non-existent (even though Telstra should have service there) and the wifi is highly patchy, and slow when it operates. I don't think that's the owner's fault - it's just not been served by our NBN. If you don't need things to be first class, then this place is great. There's a bar, lots of music and sound systems, and you can make all the noise you want. The beds are comfortable, and with 10 people it wasn't an issue having communal showers. There are a few shortcomings though - the power tripped out on some circuits a few times, the stove is tiny considering the place sleeps 16, and the BBQ was filthy (if we had discovered that before we went to cook breakfast on the morning we were checking out we would have said something) and if you're hoping for a farm experience for kids, you will only be able to look at a few horses and alpacas. On the other hand, my niece loved the chance to play with the dogs, so we were grateful to Charlie for letting them out for her.

Lots of space - great for a group gathering

Very peaceful, clean, stylish and relaxing. Will definitely return in the near future.

Wow what a stunning property!

Lovely experience although we would have like to have the outside paved or smother rather then existing granule stones

Off grid getaway

Beautiful place photos don’t do it justice and it’s rare that you see photos and arrive and it’s actually better. Jane and Kangaroo Valley staff were very professional and helpful. The only improvement I would suggest is giving me priority over everyone going forward and keep it on permanent standby for when I am ready to come back 😉 stay here only if you want the best, so cozy and romantic !!!

Do not stay here that way I can book it every time !!!!

Really nice spot to relax and unwind.

Great spot!

A beautiful quiet cottage with stylish furnishings and well equipped for an extended stay. Great location with plenty of activities close by as well as stunning landscapes. Would happily stay again

Flawless & Private

Had the most amazing weekend celebrating our anniversary here. I planned a surprise picnic under the gazebo for my girlfriend where I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. SHE SAID YES! The Lemon Tree Cottage was the perfect background to our romantic getaway. The cottage itself was cozy and well maintained, beautiful furnished and the location was so peaceful and relaxing. There are so many little nooks to chill out at and just let the world go by. Each morning we would be greeted by Kangaroos on the property as birds chirped in the background. There zero mobile phone reception, but it's better in a way as you get to disconnect. There is internet/wifi however. It's not the fastest connection but good enough for social media and zoning out with a bit of Netflix. We'll never forget our stay here, and we definitely plan on visiting against hopefully in the not too distant future! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Perfect little hideaway ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you for the holiday of a LIFETIME. We had such a wonderful time. Your house is amazing with everything you need to relax, cook fabulous food and have fun. The house was filled with love, laughter & great energy from the moment we arrived. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! PS. Great swimming hole behind the chicken coops :)

Holiday of a lifetime!!

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 spent 4 very relaxing days over Christmas at Beluca Cottage. The cottage is very clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and lots of great things for kids, including the pool, trampoline and tree house. It is quiet but within walking distance of the village's delightful shops and cafes. I can highly recommend Beluca Cottage.

Charming cottage close to Kangaroo Village

We booked this on Friday and went down on Saturday for 2 nights ... stunning , spotless wish we were there for longer !!!! Only one thing wrong maybe need to have a bigger sign post as I missed it a few times

Beautiful rose cottage

Such a perfect holiday location. We went with two couples, a child and two dogs. The house has a perfect layout and great furniture. The views are amazing, we loved sitting outside looking over the hills each morning. A wombat came right up to the house and watch us eating dinner, it was really special. Kangaroo Valley shops are 10min drive away. I would absolutely come again. The only advice Id give is to watch out for wildlife when driving, you wouldnt want to hurt any of the beautiful local residents.

Such a perfect holiday location

Platypus Bend is amazing property set beside a lovely creek with it's own watering hole. Surrounded by pastures with Highland Cattle. You can't help but smile at them!! This home is a great place to stay for an escape!

Tranquil Getaway!

Our family get-together for 2 significant birthdays was perfect at Moosewood. Very comfortable cosy house with well-equipped kitchen, two modern bathrooms, log-fire, plenty of board games, books, table tennis table and soccer game. Abundant BirdLife and Herbie the wombat and kangaroos were interesting. Plenty of walks around the property to soak up nature. Loved it!


Hydrangea is a beautiful cottage in a great location and we had a really nice two night stay. We loved the tasteful furnishing and generally high spec touches. The only areas to improve on would be to have china plates and bowls instead of plastic as this was a bit of a strange choice. Perhaps a lamp or two in the living room would be nice too. We would be happy to return.

Lovely stay

We stayed for the weekend and had an amazing time at the house. It was really beautiful, we loved the spectacular views all around the house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Look fwd to returning some day Soon...

Fantastic views

A truly wonderful home for a weekend away, especially as we decided to eat in each night and explorer the area during the day Braeside was very comfortable and spacious

Girls weekend away

Rayfields at Berry was located on an absolutely stunning property, overlooking the surrounding mountains and valleys. We met the owners upon arrival who were extremely accommodating and very helpful. The house and adjoining cottage were beautiful, very clean and inviting. Rayfields is the perfect place if you want to get outside and explore, or if you just want to escape, sit and enjoy the amazing countryside. I always like to leave reviews for properties when they are enjoyed so I thought I would for Rayfields. Would definitely recommend!

Perfect Weekend Getaway Retreat

My family and I loved how the house had so many little "extras" like a well-stocked kitchen, books, DVDs, and games around. Everything was comfortable and we ha a lovely relaxing time. Thanks

So many personal touches

Our family had a very pleasant stay at Moosewood over Easter 2021 with great weather and a relaxed atmosphere. We only went out a few times. Once to look around town and a pub meal and most went out for a round of golf but we were happy just resting, playing some board games and lots of table tennis. Moosewood was clean and tidy with a great kitchen. Some proper cupboards in the bedrooms would be nice. Did not see the wombats this time which was disappointing. Land is recovering well after the fires.

Easter stay

What a lovely house, view and pool we all enjoyed our stay so much. The management team were very friendly and helpful, the accommodation was excellent we had everything we needed and more. the only negative thing was we had to go home but we will be back. thank you

Best ever holiday

A great place to stay to explore Kangaroo Valley and it's surroundings. Sky Ridge has everything you need to escape for the weekend. We enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning.

Great Location

Simply gorgeous cottage in a beautiful bush setting. Beautifully decorated with everything you'll need in the kitchen. Loved the complimentary toiletries, comfy beds with fluffy dooners and pillows, gorgeous furniture and fire. Was perfect for our girls weekend away.

Simply gorgeous cottage

What a little gem! The booking process was simple and Charlie the owner was wonderful. Our family absolutely loved the place. The old barn is filled with love and history. The outdoor fire pit was a highlight and so were the ducks, cat, dogs, pony and horses

Back to nature

What a truly quaint cottage. Perfect for my wife and I and our young child. Close to town and had all the amenities needed for a long weekend stay.

Great location and a real gem of a cottage

Not sure I want to tell anyone about this house - prefer to keep it a secret. Clean, comfortable, great amenities and location. Had 6 adults, 1 grandchild and 3 dogs and it was perfect. Loved the new fire pit and plenty of room for all of us to roam around inside and out. Dogs loved the grounds and grandson loved neighbours horses. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home - we will be back.

What a wonderful house

This was a great rental booking for the weekend. Off the grid. Very secluded. Good size rooms and plenty of communal space. Worth a visit when you want to recharge the batteries in a lovely location.

Great weekend retreat!

Moor's Cottage was the perfect place for my partner and I to get a break from the city and relax in Berrima. The house is clean and beautifully designed, with a freestanding bathtub which soaks away all the stress. A short walk into historic Berrima makes morning coffees and brunch a breeze, and Josh's Cafe provide one of the best lunches I've ever had.

Lovely getaway to unwind

Flowers was centrally located, right on top of Bistro One 46 and the Pie shop and opposite the General store/cafe. Flowers was beautifully decorated and very comfortable and spacious.

Perfect location for a weekend escape

Everything met expectation. Cosy, comfortable, clean and close to town. Just needed to have oil and butter supplies and it would have been perfect!

Great weekend

A beautiful property with wonderful decor and presentation. Very peaceful. Would highly recommend

Amazing stay

We enjoyed our two nights at Ryders Retreat. The space was perfect for our family of 7; 4 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 children. My in-laws were visiting from Peru and were amazed by the natural beauty of Kangaroo Valley, perfectly accessible from this property. We would love to visit again in the future.

We enjoyed our two nights at Ryders Retreat

We were very impressed with the Villa in every way, it exceeded our expectations. A lovely experience that we would happily repeat. Thank you.


Just came back from an amazing stay at kookaburra hill. The house was equipped with everything we need and the surroundings were spectacular. Highly recommended.

Amazing stay

7 adults and 1 toddler enjoyed this beautiful home. Marvelous kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Huge double fridge, large oven and 3 bbqs. Very spacious with two living rooms and beautiful comfortable beds. Huge grounds and a beautiful swimming pool, lovely views of Kangaroo Valley. We loved our stay and will stay again

Fabulous Family 60th Bitthday Celebration

Fantastic accommodation! Beautifully decorated and kitted out. All provisions provided. Especially loved the bathroom and upstairs tv room! The position within the village is excellent with the pub just across the road.

All you need for a long weekend away

It was a very special Xmas with family. My elderly parents really enjoyed it Beautiful location. Back to nature was fantastic. Lots of Roos and wombats everywhere. It was a great Xmas location

It was a very special Christmas

It’s such a lovely property. Clean and Comfortable and plenty of room for 6 adults, 1 toddler, 1 baby and 3 dogs. Gardens are beautiful, pool and fire pit were perfect and amenities spot on and so nice to be able to walk to KV village. Good customer service with Kangaroo Valley Escapes which made booking easy. See you next year.

Another Wonderful Stay at Kookaburra Hill

Thanks for the lovely stay at Braesdie on the weekend. The group loved the property! It was just what we needed for a rejuvenating and special quality time together. My dear friend who has had a torrendous time lately really needed the weekend and from when she arrived to when she left she was a different person. The house is in a convenient location and is beautifully appointed. Our sincere thanks and we look forward to perhaps visiting again.


Annies Barn is an absolute gem. Beautifully set up, so peaceful and relaxing with the most comfortable bed-I slept properly for the first time in six months! We cant wait to go back, and will as soon as possible. Thank you so much for a fabulous getaway! We had a wonderful time and will be back again soon

Annies Barn is an absolute gem

This is a great choice for a Southern Highlands getaway. The property is charming, very fresh and set in a beautiful property with some unique features. Very comfortable stay, huge bathroom with full free standing bath. Berrima itself has plenty to explore and great eating options, while only a short drive to neighbouring Moss Vale or Bowral. Easy booking experience. Will be back for future stays!

Charming Berrima getaway

Booked the venue as it was near to the wedding we were attending. Great location, easy to find, and everything you need is on site. The host is super friendly as is his dog. Very close to Fitzroy Falls and the national park. The only downside? We only stayed one night!

Short weekend break

Really cosy place to explore the Southern Highlands from, with good proximity to Bowral. Seemless handover, very clean and all amenities you could require.

Cosy base for the Southern Highlands

I'm so impressed with this venue. It's a great place for relaxing with all clean rooms. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely will come again.


Fantastic place to have a weekend away. Beds very comfortable, the place had everything you need. Very clean and spacious. Lots of books to read. Close to shops and cafes. Highly recommend it, we will definitely stay there again. Thank you to the owners.

Great Location

Wonderful weekend with close friends staying in a fabulous home and location

Weekend escape

Exceeding expectations, it’s the little things that make this home so very worthwhile if you are considering a trip to the southern highlands. Well appointed in both location, style and comfort, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great rural escape

Perfect weekend away in beautiful surroundings. Almost everything has been thought of here, beds extremely comfortable, kitchen well equiped. Sitting on the back porch drinking a cup of tea whilst listening to the cicada concert in fortissimo was an uplifting experience! Only minor issue, was that, I thought a small supply of milk would have been nice so that we could have just unpacked and enjoyed a cuppa on arrival.Otherwise, this was a perfect break away from the city. I could not believe how cool it was inside the house whilst over 30 degrees during the day.

Great Getaway

A wonderful weekend cooking with girl friends in house and out at Cooking School. Such a great kitchen to work in as a group. We lapped up the luxury. A bathroom per bedroom is a game changer!

Cooking with Friends

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

Stunning Views

5 guys, late fifties and sixties, second time visiting Fentons Run. The place is very well maintained, prepared for new guests, clean, plenty of firewood, all amenities plentiful and functional, . The bar is well set up with a music system with all kinds of connections. Large fridges to accommodate beverages and ice. Pool table in fine condition. New BBQ near the outside fireplace which is covered if need be. Inside is the longest table I've seen. Bedrooms very comfortable, good linen and a heater and spare blanket in each room. Highly recommended.Management looked after us for very well. Thanks Charlie and Co.

Thursday to Sunday at Fentons Run. Magnificent.

Lovely modern house, close to town, 4 min drive, bit of an uphill walk on the way home, around 20 minutes. Very clean and tidy and well equipped. Really spacious for 2 people, would definitely stay again. Some lovely places in Bowral for browsing and eating.

Neat as a pin

Beautiful house to spend a very wet weekend in! Lots of comforts and space. Great location, loved all the books and furnishings.


We had a wonderful stay in this delightful property in Exeter. The house is decorated beautifully and has everything you could possibly need. The garden is huge, is extremely well kept and has lots of ball games to keep you entertained and the pool area is beautiful. The House is a short walk from Exeter general store where they serve excellent coffee and food and is a short drive to bundanoon and the national parks. Highly recommend!

Fabulous house and delightful garden

An excellent property managed by an extremely helpful team.


Very thoughtful touches and activities throughout. It was very clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Highly recommend this experience! Loved waking up to the kangaroos grazing around us!

Beautiful place

Lovely home, ideal for 6 people. We spent a wonderful girl's weekend here in the winter, the fire was so cosy and the valley was beautiful with lots of Kangaroos around the property. Kangaroo Valley town and shops are just 15 minutes up the road. The property is pretty secluded, so be aware that there is no cell reception - but that's perfect if you're escaping the city and work for a weekend of peace and quiet. Be sure to look at the stars!!! Hosts were prompt in communication and clear easy instructions were left. The property was very clean and had all the ammenities you need.

Great weekend getaway!

We had a lovely weekend getaway and the cottage was exactly what we were after for our getaway.

Lovely Weekend Getaway

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


Where do I even begin to describe this amazing cottage. The property is clean, and has an abundance of soulful energy. There are plenty of kangaroos in sight, and the views are amazing. The bathtub under the stars is like a dream come true. I had a fabulous time although it rained every night. There is an outdoor fireplace and a bbq burner, as well as a kitchenette inside. It really has everything you need. It has a great portable speaker and a DVD player, you really need nothing else to recharge your batteries. The owner was incredibly kind and offered me to use her hot tub. If you’re in need of me time, soul time or time to reconnect, this is your place. Jump on to book and go away on a magical carpet ride. There are amazing little places around to look at rainfalls, have amazingly scrumptious breakfasts and to have wood fired pizzas by the indoor fireplaces. I know I’ll be coming back again.

A resting place for the soul

Lemon Tree Cottage I discovered a few years ago as the perfect Winter escape. It had all the features I wanted for my holiday. Secluded with no traffic noise. Private with beautiful vistas from all windows. A fireplace for atmosphere. Self contained with a fabulous kitchen so I can do my magic making delicious meals. Character filled decor inside and out. It is cute as a button.


My husband and I were on our baby moon and we definitely made the most of our stay enjoying the delights of the southern highlands as well as relaxing in a secluded cottage. Well worth the trip!

Nevertire cottage baby moon escape

Gorgeous cottage! Modern while retaining a super cute and cosy feel. Incredible sweeping views from every window that take your breath away! All the amenities were there including coffee machine, huge TV and Wifi, which worked very well. Great place to escape from the city. Kids loved watching the sheep in the paddock next to us. Can't wait to come back. Thank you for a great long weekend!

Beautiful cottage!

The stables have been renovated into comfortable accommodation. The host is excellent and Charlie could not do more to have helped us, he even lit the fires for us before we arrived. The house has all that you need for a fun group get together and the beds are very comfy. The decor is rustic but comfortable. Lovely outside area near a fire and plenty if dining and activity space. Located within 20 mins of Bowral the quiet country estate was perfect for our small school-girls reunion. Great stay!

Rustic Country stay great for groups

My wife and I absolutely adore the southern highlands, we even stayed in Berrima the first week of the new year and we were evacuated a night early. This time around we wanted to explore Exeter and Bundanoon and Oakley House was perfect as it had all the creature comforts you could ask for along with a beautiful swimming pool which our three kids could not get enough of. If you love the simple things in life like relaxing and reading a good book, Oakley House is the Pinnacle example of a divine getaway. We will most definitely be back. Thank you.

Peaceful Country Cottage

Simply amazing! We travel a bit within NSW and this is a standout. Well equipped kitchen - we made pizzas. Nice rooms and two and a half bathrooms. Slept well - no sagging mattresses or bad pillows. Fantastic surrounds to explore with the kids. We will go back. Harry and Tanja.

Perfect place with children and two families

Braeside is a beautifully presented house with an amazing view of the valley. Perfectly located for golf sightseeing etc. The house is immaculately presented with lots of creature comforts. The fire pit in the back yard is an added delight - nothing like a wine and chat around a fire. I do have a couple of comments re equipment. Most people who stay here would be cooking each night. We found there was a lack of bowls/ good knives for the kitchen . Also the shower is quite dangerous with no door. A lot of water stays on the floor of the bathroom. Overall though the perfect spot.

A special spot in KV

The entire experience was exceptional. Dealing with the staff was very pleasant as they were so helpful. The apartment was so comfortable, well decorated and many extra touches. Also a great location!.

A great apartment

Braeside was picture perfect and beautifully appointed for our family group of 8 . It provided comfort, relaxation, sanctuary, and spaciousness which was just what we wanted. The house and grounds were gorgeous and our only close neighbours were the kangaroos.

Picture perfect

Such an amazing comfortable stay. We booked last minute and can not rave enough about how smooth sailing the whole thing went. The apartment exceeded our expectations. Location is perfect and right in town. The apartment is beautifully renovated and styled. Amazing communication as well. We will be back!

Beautiful apartment!

What a lovely surprise! We stayed in Leaves and it was so spacious and well thought out. The owners clearly want you to enjoy your stay. Lovely and clean too. The unit is right in the middle of the main street, so it's just a short stroll to cafes and the local pub.

Lovely little surprise!

Beautiful, clean and tidy space. We stayed here during the Kangaroo Valley BBQ Festival and it was a great central location. We happened to meet the owner who was very friendly and accommodating. A welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch!

Great central location!

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


We stayed at Rayfields for a weekend with a group of 9 friends. The house was gorgeous and fully equipped for a lovely getaway, with plenty of cooking equipment. The view from the property was also fantastic! Both Berry and Kangaroo Valley are close-by which was convenient for grocery shopping and activities. Overall we loved our stay and hope to be back soon!

Wonderful escape

We had an amazing weekend at Sahali KV. The house is incredible, with so many different areas, you felt like you had your own secluded spot despite there being 12 of us. The house was well equipped with everything you could need.. The view was a highlight to wake up to in the morning! Just stunning scenery. I have recommended this spot to many of my friends! The only thing I would say was that the bin was already basically full for when we arrived. Other than that i can’t fault it, it was the perfect weekend getaway with friends! Charlotte & Eddie

Beautiful Weekend Away

Annie’s barn totally exceeded our expectation! The accommodation had everything we needed and was very cozy, perfect for a weekend stay. We also fell in love with the most welcoming furry hosts - a little Jack Russell and a cute little white fluffy

Amazing little gem in Fitzroy Falls

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!

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.


Visited for the weekend, and it was absolutely lovely! The barn itself was clean, well equipped and fitted out to make us feel right at home. The farm was also lots of fun with all the animals running free. Would definitely recommend and visit again soon.

Beautiful getaway

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!


What a beautiful property in such an amazing location! We loved walking around the property and seeing all the wildlife. The sounds of birds and the mist over the gorgeous view was such a treat to wake up to. We loved having the kennel there for our dog so we were able to explore Berry and the surrounds. Thank you for such a lovely stay!

Dog Friendly Family Fun

Lovely house on a single level with a beautiful pool and gardens

Love Kangaroo Valley

We loved our weekend at Budgong Lodge. Its open and airy and all the bedrooms equal so choosing was easy! For us the fire place made it warm and cosy we felt we were home!

Home is where the hearth is.

Lovely and spacious and close to everything the village has to offer. Very clean with a lovely furnishings and a welcome bottle of wine on arrival was much appreciated.

Great location

We loved the apartment. Super clean with nice little touches such as welcome bottle of wine, kitchen basics and coffee machine. Great balcony and swing chair on deck and lovely furnishings inside. Only downsides fire place doesn't work which we knew ahead of time but a shame, very noisy neighbours upstairs and bring your own pillow unless you want to sleep lay your head on a brick! Saying that, I'd definitely return, great locations and lovely view from balcony.

Lovely flat, lovely views...

Lemon Tree Cottage was a peaceful, serene retreat and only a stone's throw away from town. It is the perfect place to forget about all the uncertainty in the world and escape from all the troubles. It is fully equipped with everything needed for a few days and the beautiful creek running alongside the property was a delight to explore. We will definitely be back for a few days next year. We loved it so much.

Relax in a beautiful part of the Valley

We had an amazing weekend away staying in the beautiful Saddle Ridge house in KV. The House itself is spectacular and the amenities and appliances are exceptional - we could not fault it! We will most certainly be back.

Fabulous Weekend Away at Saddle Ridge

Villa 27 a lovely place to stay amazing views from deck , even though it’s on golf course not noisy at all,bed and pillows super comfy, we asked for a later check out which wasn’t a problem will definitely go again

A little piece of heaven

Moose wood definitely exceeded my expectations. The house was amazing and was located in a great secluded spot with views of the valley and all the wildlife. It had everything you could ever need and turned out to be a perfect spot to unwind relax and disconnect from the world...

Perfect getaway

This is a beautiful house, defined by the wonderful river which runs through the property. We swam, lay on the rocks and walked. The gardens are gorgeous and we enjoyed eating outside, having our dogs with us and having a picnic by the dam. Amazing birds and orchards. Loved getting veggies from the garden and fresh eggs. Main bedroom magnificent. All in all an incredible place. Only suggestion - it would have been great to get some info on best spots to find platypus.

Secluded and beautiful

The house was lovely and very comfortable. It’s in a great location, close to Berrima. We stayed for our sons wedding at Bendooley which was a 5 minute drive away. Highly recommend Somerset

Somerset at Berrima

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

A comfortable, warm and spacious home with everything you need, located in the best village in the highlands. This is the second time we have stayed at Oakley House and will definitely book it again. The Property Manager is extremely efficient.

Oakley House in May

Exactly as described. Spacious, very clean, wrap round deck for relaxing with coffee or a drink taking in magnificent views. Would highly recommend to friends.

Total Relaxation

Where do I even begin to describe this amazing cottage. The property is clean, and has an abundance of soulful energy. There are plenty of kangaroos in sight, and the views are amazing. The bathtub under the stars is like a dream come true.

A resting place for the soul

Although our stay was brief, Oakley House was quiet, immaculately presented and comfortable. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning for a longer stay

Quiet, immaculately presented and comfortable

An absolutely beautiful property, highly recommend. Excellent communication from host from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for having us!

Beautiful Property!

Very well appointed holiday cottage. Nice quality furniture, bedding and appliances, kitchen well equipped for a holiday cottage. Lovely setting, perfect for relaxing get away.

Great Accomodation

An incredible place - amazing views, lots of great areas to enjoy the peace and quiet. Would definitely be back again.

Perfect weekend escape

Lovely country stay. Comfortable with the farm egg collecting and fireplace a treat. Scenic and perfect for families

Lovely Country Stay

Lovely cottage , clean and comfy, fantastic open view. helpful customer service staff Lizzie and nice and friendly property staff Steve Thank you so much, my husband and I really had a great time and We look forward to coming back again ~

Simply love it

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.


Superb, very relaxing!


Kayenta Kangaroo Valley was a wonderful place to stay. It had all the amenities you could ever want and some lovely quirky and interesting spaces to share a meal, a few laughs or curl up with a good book. Would def visit again.

A wonderful place to stay

This property has been thoughtfully built and furnished and feels cosy like a real home, while still providing some luxuries you may not experience in the city. We had a lovely stay and thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine.

The perfect place to relax

Given that Berrima was declared NSW's best tourist destination for its population, its not surpirse that the twon was inundated with people on the long weekend. The beauty of Somerset was that it represented the Georgian architecture of the village beautifully. Beautifully restored and wonderfully warm with the two fires, it was also was within easy walking distance of the entire village. Perfect stay for our family of grandparents, two preganant mums and a small baby. It's a house to retire to.

A most beautiful house

Lemon Tree Cottage is a gorgeous place. Immaculately clean, cozy, comfortable, great kitchen and lovely bushland surroundings. It feels really remote, but actually is very close to Kangaroo Valley village. Highly recommended.

A rejuvenating retreat

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at Fentons Run. The bedrooms were well appointed as was the kitchen. The bathrooms were adequate although a little rustic. Charlie was a great host and very attentive. He visited daily to make sure we had everything we needed and that the fires were alight. Everyone had a great time.

Great get away

The house was clean and presented well, we have rented this property before. Unfortunately the laundry facilities when you stay a week are lacking. They have a washing machine but no dryer or clothes pegs, so we always have to go to Nowra to dry our clothing. Other than that it is a well presented property.

Family holiday

Great place in a lovely setting. Apart from basic but adequate bathrooms the house was perfect. Charlie was a fabulous host.

Girls weekend

Converted stables with perfect outdoor entertaining. Fantastic setting comfortable rooms, perfect spot for up to 14 guests. Charlie was the perfect host, interested in our little group but never intrusive.

Fentons Run weekend

Our stay was simply amazing, the home was indeed special, well appointed at every level from kitchen extremely well equipped, fireplace was perfect, dining areas superb and bedrooms just gorgeous. The setting was perfect, definitely a place to go.

Amazing property

I recently stayed here with my husband, our puppy and two couples. We had an exceptional stay at this pet friendly home and couldn’t have asked for a loren perfect weekend away. The room sizes were comfortable, the multiple indoor and outdoor spaces exceptional and you can’t beat the gorgeous pool out the back. The fire pit was one of our favorite nightly activities and there was plenty of property for the family dog to run wild around during the day. The home is clean and tidy and furnished really nicely too. The home is also a short walk to the shops and pub if you wanted to leave the confines of the comfortable home. I can’t wait to come back again soon.

A perfect family and pet friendly holiday home

The property was well set up for our needs. Great amount of space for groups, helpful host.

Great get-a-way for groups

We had a lovely relaxing time taking in our surrounds. The fireplaces internally and externally enhanced the environment providing ample warmth and ambience The kitchen was well equipped although we had planned to get lost in a few movies, the lack of internet service allowed us to engage more with one another and nature ... truly a place to escape the world ... thank you sky ridge.

A valley of peace calm and pureness

What a wonderful place to relax, quiet, oh so comfortable (best bed ever) Greg and Roxy were inviting and friendly. So close to the Falls and so Central to the 3 towns. Décor and facilities are amazing, had a wonderful time and definitely on the list of places to return too. Thanks you so much

Annie's Barn Experience

This was my third stay at Ryders Creek, and every time I look forward to the peace, serenity and calmness that a break there brings me. So much attention to detail, you can just tell the owners care about their home and farm so much. The walk down to the creek and the views from the back deck have to be experienced to be appreciated. A wonderful family holiday. Well certainly be going back again

So much serenity

The property feels like you have been welcomed with open arms. Gorgeous location and so comfy

Like a Warm Hug

We stayed at Flowers cottage for the October long weekend and absolutely loved it! It was so clean, spacious and comfortable. Beds were fantastic! Has all the mod-cons to make for a lovely stay and there was a nice touch of a bottle of wine on arrival from the owners, thank you! Lovely location in KV main street, directly opposite the general store and cafe. Short driving distance to nice bushwalks and other towns such as Berry and Nowra. The balcony is gorgeous and a beautiful sun trap! Thank you

Beds were fantastic!

We had a wonderful and relaxing time with our daughter and her 2 dogs. The village is 10 minutes walk away with great coffee shop and restaurants. Tiffany’s Garden was a blaze of colour. The mountain drive from Berry to the property was stunning.

Huge house in beautiful countryside

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great instructions and support from the team. The facilities were generous and the pool was an extra bonus. Highly recommend.

Fabulous location and getaway spot

Stayed over the weekend with some friends and couldn’t get enough of the view. There was an incredible amount of natural sunlight in the house and a private lake and jetty

Perfect tranquil getaway with views of the Valley

We stayed for 3 nights and it wasn't long enough. Beautiful little cottage with everything you need. Location was breath taking. Will definitely be back again.

Home away from home!

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!

This is our second stay at Platypus Bend. We absolutely love it here. The grounds are amazing, the house is so well equipped with everything you need. Always well presented. Staff are always helpful and prompt at getting back to us. It is one of the best farmstays we have stayed at and I'm sure it won't be the last time.

Overall satisfaction

This property had 3 houses on it, and we booked all 3. We had a wonderful stay and the property is excellent, so many positives, the views/outlook, clean a wonderful place to stay. (The only negative is that the water pressure was virtually non existant so we had trickle showers!) but the properties themselves are fantastic.

Great Find in KV

Great location and amazing views over kangaroo valley. Perfect for large groups of friends.

Amazing views!

The cottage is wonderful. All the rooms are spacious with comfortable furniture .The kitchen is fully equipped with stand out appliances and the views are wonderful.We would recommend this too all our friends.


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

My husband and I had a lovely weekend at Beluca cottage. The kitchen was stocked with all the basics and the whole house was spotless and clean when we arrived. There was also plenty of wood for a fire. The location is fantastic. It’s short walk to the town, the restaurants and shops.

Lovely cottage close to town

Lovely home Pool and pet friendly were our two requirements and we were very happy to find a house that offered both Managing agent was extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with.

Oakley House Exeter

We had a lovely time at Lemon Tree Cottage. The property is well cared for and well appointed. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The staff supporting our booking were also so helpful, assisting with planning and addressing any questions we had.

Charming Picturesque Cottage

We had such a nice, relaxing long weekend at Moosewood with the family for my birthday. We hardly left the house as we had everything we needed right there. Loved the indoor fireplace which kept the house nice and warm and the outdoor firepit was a hit with the kids for toasting marshmallows. We loved going for bush walks and kangaroo and wombat spotting! And had so much fun playing table tennis, Foosball, playing cards and board games and just relaxing and eating drinking with the family. We cant wait to come back!

We had everything we needed right there

The cottage was a lovely break away from city life, the bon fire, bbq & outdoor bath were lovely features to this property (although it was too cold & windy for us to be outdoors & enjoy it to its full potential) we still loved the cottage and having a country escape with peace & quite. The cottage was super clean and the addition of the electric blanket + having the heater made the cottage extra cozy and enjoyable. We would recommend the cottage to friends. Thank you for the easy & fast communication.

Beautiful cottage with a peaceful & tranquil vibe

We enjoyed our stay at Lavender Hill. The house was extremely cosy and warm and it was clean and comfortable.

Family friendly well equipped house

Just what we were after, peace and quiet, lovely outlook and places nearby to explore.

Kangaroo Valley Escapes

Our extended family of 9 had a lovely weekend at Rayfields in September. It was delightful to wander around the property and enjoy the abundance of birdlife. Night time wombat spotting was also a highlight. The house was very comfortable and spacious for the 9 of us plus 2 active dogs. The only suggestion I would make is the need for an ensuite to the main bedroom. Otherwise, a beautiful place to relax.

Such a beautiful spot

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

We had a lovely girls weekend away at Rayfield. The home was spacious and warm, well equipped and had breathtaking views of the valley. The perfect location with easy access to Berry and the Kangaroo Valley, would love to stay again one day.

Perfect Country Escape

A lovely relaxing place to stay right in the centre of town. Very stylish would highly recommend. The accommodation is beautiful with lovely touches throughout. Such an interesting space but very relaxing. Thanks again.

Very Stylish

A wonderful stay in KV in a beautiful house. Modern and clean with top brand appliances. Everything you needed was there and we didn't want to leave. It was the perfect weekend home to get away.

The perfect home stay

The house is even more impressive than it looked in the photos and has an amazing view from every room including the bathrooms! It is fitted out with everything you could possibly ever need for a few days away including some absolutely stunning artworks. The fireplace is massive and so perfect for winter nights. Sundowners on the deck as the kangaroos start to gather out the back was also a hit. We can't wait to find a time in our schedule to return and stay a bit longer.

Amazing Views from every room!

My daughter and I had such a lovely stay at the Villa, had all the amenities we needed to enjoy our stay. It was particularly great to have a full size fridge for all of our food and a gas stove to cook on. A lovely view to wake up to every morning and to hear the birds was just beautiful. Would absolutely stay here again.

Xmas get away

We had a relaxing and memorable stay at this beautiful rural getaway! 5 nights here was all that was needed to unwind and reconnect with family after a challenging 2020. This property had everything we needed and more. Our teenagers were still able connect with their friends with the good quality wifi and enjoy listening to their music on the Bluetooth / airplay enabled surround sound speakers (which by the way are both inside and outside the house). We enjoyed the fire pit, bbq, walking tracks, beautiful sunrises (and sunsets) and watching the kangaroos jumping around near the house and surrounding property. Overall, recommend staying here if you would like to reconnect with your family and just unwind and relax. Finally, kayaking hire and plenty of swimming water holes are a short drive away which we enjoyed. Did I mention the Piano, table tennis and full sized Foosball?

Relaxing getaway at Moosewood

Words can't describe how magical our stay at The Sticks was - we went away as a group of 8 friends and it was exceptional in every way. From the incredible detailed architecture, to the high end layered interior design to the most amazing setting and the comfiest of beds. We felt we were in a small luxury six star resort. Thank you to the team at Kangaroo Valley Escapes for making the booking process so easy and for your professional service. We highly recommend The Stix to anyone looking for an exclusive high end break - you won't be disappointed!

Perfection in Kangaroo Valley

The house had a big kitchen and entertaining space so it was perfect for the 6 of us!

Great space!

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

Excellent! Stunning location and beautiful house.


Our stay at Wild Rose was wonderful, the views from the balcony and were spectacular, the animals on the property such a highlight for our children who spent most of the time outside watching and patting the horses and sheep. A short distance to the cafes / shops. A wonderful relaxing long weekend. Thank you


Beautiful location great views will return.

Great Escape

We really enjoyed Platypus Bend. It was very quite and secluded and had a very nice feel. Luxury in a great rural setting!

Great country stay!

Everything perfect ,clean, cosy and tastefully decorated. Loved the mist rising in the morning and the stars at night - so restful . We loved all the bird life, the beautiful golf course with a few putters about enjoying a game. We dined at the Jing Jo and the Woolshed and had brunch at the General Store. All served delicious food and friendly staff. Would recommend the walk up Drawing Rocks with amazing views to the sea. This was a surprise weekend so next time we can bring golf caddy, tennis rackets and volley ball to make use of the wonderful facilities.!! Certainly a memorable stay to celebrate our 50th Anniversary.

Excellent weekend Getaway.

What a fantastic place to stay! Perfect location with everything at your fingertips; shops, cafes, restaurants. On arrival we were greeted with a lovely warm home & a bottle of wine to enjoy! This home has been beautifully decorated and is very en trend! I have house envy! Its perfect for 2 couples or a family! The lounge area upstairs has such a lovey feel with the pitched ceiling showing off different angles. We would highly recommend this home. It was also quieter that we first thought. Extremely well insulated from the small amount of street noise & the shop below.

What a fantastic place to stay!

We were in the valley for a hectic wedding weekend. We certainly appreciated a lovely tranquil clean site with much character. Particularly enjoyed the wombats and discovering their back-rubbing trees. Lyrebirds along the creek line too. :)

Wildlife abounds

We really enjoyed our stay and loved sitting on the deck enjoying the view. It was a shame the dishwasher was broken but the owners were very helpful. The dog loved the amount of space to run around.

I would definitely stay there again.

A lovely spot to go and really get away from the noise of the city. Listen for the different bird songs, and watch the light and colours of the mountains change in the light whilst sitting on the back deck. Great spot for photographers. We really enjoyed our time there and would definitely go again.

Top of the Mountain Escape

Really great generally. Clean, tidy, just big enough for the 6 of us. Rear level area of the yard could have been mowed before we arrived. Made for some awkward games among the weeds. Otherwise great!

Weekend stay

Ideal location lovely host beautiful farm only criticism would be the property is dark and damp and cold they need windows in the living/bedroom

Fitzroy falls retreat

Absolutely gorgeous character home in the perfect spot in beautiful Berrima. The wood fire was beautiful, the house is very well insulated so we were very comfortable. Beds were comfy. Kitchen was very well equipped. We will absolutely return.

Absolutely gorgeous character home

Hydrangeas was exactly as shown in the photos. A cosy, comfortable and spotlessly clean getaway for two with everything you need for a few days away. We stayed for five days over New Year and did not want to leave. Bowral is a pleasant 20 minute walk away with many restaurants and shops to explore. The central location is ideal to explore the Southern Highlands, Kangaroo Valley and surrounds. Excellent communication from KVE from start to finish, I would highly recommend Hydrangeas to anyone and I plan to return again next year! Thank you!

Perfect escape for a couple

Very clean apartment and beautifully decorated. Conveniently located close to shops and cafes. Highly recommend!!

Beautiful Apartment

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!

Well equipped kitchen and plenty of space to relax!

Really close to town but still secluded

Friends and I recently spent a few enjoyable nights at Oakley House, Exeter. Beautiful home with great amenities - pity the cool weather meant we didn't take advantage of the pool which looked so inviting. It was a short drive to Moss Vale where we did our bit for local businesses. Enjoyed brunch at the Moss Vale Post Office Cafe, and quite a few of the home made goodies at Sutton Forest General Store. I would definitely recommend this House to others, and look forward to booking it again.

Oakley - a little gem in the southern highlands

My partner and I picked this location due to its convenient location and for its superb comfort that boarded on luxurious as well as value for money. Would highly recommend for a weekend away or mid week stay.

Perfect location and comfortable

Our group (4 couples) had a wonderful weekend in this most amazing property from the stunning grounds and views, the cozy fire pit, the lovely pool to the beautiful house was such a treat. We would love to come back some day soon!

Fantastic Place!

The cottage was lovely and the outlook was beautiful, particularly at sunset. It was cosy and comfortable, and just the place for a romantic break. The only negatives I found were that although there was a coffee maker advertised, there was no coffee maker. The advertised "pantry items" a little lacking as well, with minimal coffee and only 1 teabag to last 3 days. The cookware was also a little disappointing, especially considering the tariff paid for the accommodation, with the cheap frypan not able to sit flat on the cooktop. We still had a fabulous time, however an improved eye for detail and some "little extras" reflective of the "luxurious" description and price of the accommodation would make this the perfect short getaway.

Enjoyed our stay

This property was amazing. The house was so clean and had this great feel to it. The property and views were amazing. We felt so relaxed from the minute we drove up and we had such a wonderful girls weekend away.

Beautiful property

Fantastic house, love the fire place, outdoor pit and pizza oven. Made for a great time with family. The kids loved the space, the trampoline, soccer and ping pong tables. Kangaroos ever every, gorgeous sunsets. Great communication and very helpful hosts.

Fun family getaway

Lisas place was amazing! The location was great, just what you needed for a weekend away. Phone reception was limited however we didnt mind as the place had everything you need to entertain yourself without needing to leave. We often said wow wouldnt it be great to live here. We are already planning our next trip to moosewood

Just what you needed for a weekend away

We found the house to be exactly as advertised. It was perfect for our requirements and provided us with a satisfying break. House was well presented and plenty of room for the 8 that stayed. Enjoyed visiting all the towns close to Kangaroo Valley.

Sothern Highlands Getaway

A beautiful fresh cottage in an outstanding location with a fabulous balcony for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails enjoying the stunning gardens.


Beautiful house, well equipped, wonderful views and gardens

Amazing house, great location

Extremely well set up with fabulous views. Criticism would be small oven (no light in oven), small fridge, very small bbq. More open plan than we imagined but that contributed to the fun. A real bonus is each bedroom having its own en-suite and the resident wombat who visits each afternoon. This property is highly recommended, as are the wonderful and very accommodating staff at Kangaroo Valley Escapes

Interesting, Fun, Fabulous

Beautifully appointed accommodation in a magical setting. So many fabulous walks and activities if you are keen, canoeing on the river not to be missed and plenty of swimming spots along the way. Local shops have everything you need and make sure you drive down to the valley via the Fitzroy Falls, spectacular. You won't want to leave !

You won't want to leave !

Absolutely amazing location and accommodation. So peaceful. Would highly recommend to any couples wanting a romantic, relaxed getaway.

Amazing. Must stay!

Had an amazing trip to the southern highlands to stay at Charlies place. As soon as we got there Charlie was there to greet us and had pre lit the fire and had the place nice and toasty. We had a large group and the house had more than enough space for all of us to feel completely comfortable.


We had a wonderful stay at Lemon Tree Cottage. Check in was super easy and when we arrived, the house was sparkling clean and fresh with plenty of the comforts of home, as well as a lovely bottle of wine as a gift. We loved the fireplace during our stay (which was cold and wet, but oh so cosy inside!) and truly appreciated the little touches such as quality linen on the beds, a heated floor in the bathroom and Nespresso coffee machine with pods. The kitchen was very well stocked with pantry items and facilities and we made good use of it as well as visiting local restaurants/cafes in the local village and Berry. The property was so beautiful, with lovely gardens and lush forests, creeks and bush surrounding it. We explored a bit with the kids and saw lots of kangaroos and much to our excitement, also wombats! We really had the best stay and made the most of some down time and relaxation as well. Kangaroo Valley is just a beautiful place to visit! We’d love to return and highly recommend Lemon Tree Cottage to others.

Beautiful family getaway

Cute place with lots of charm. Loved the opportunity to befriend the horses on site. Next investment needs to be an outdoor firepit!

Country Oasis

Good location to all the beautiful places in and around Exeter,highly recommended for a great getaway for a family

Stunning and Spectacular views

Our extended family of seven adults and three children had a long week at Platypus Bend and it wasn't long enough. The kids mucked about in the creek for hours, and loved feeding the chooks and collecting herbs from the garden. The adults also enjoyed strolling (some of us hiking) around the property. We were very lucky with sensational winter sunshine, but I think hunkering down in front of the fire would have been just as enjoyable. The house had everything imaginable, including consumables like wood for the fire, insect repellent, aluminium foil, shampoo/conditioner, eggs from the chooks. Heaps of cooking equipment, coffee machine. Plenty of heaters, great BBQ. There are also heaps of guides about how to use the heaters, ovens, TV, sound system etc. The house was immaculately clean, well appointed and luxurious. The gardens are beautiful. My mother-in-law brought her little dog, who also had a lovely time. The house was perfect for our family, with spaces to withdraw to as well as spaces to come together. We're thinking about a warm weather stay next time.

Plenty of space!

Even though it was very HOT and SMOKY (due to nearby bush fires) this lovely accommodation was cool and cosy. Didn’t need the aircon. The bed was very comfortable, and the area so quiet except for the sounds of birds.

Cool and Cosy

The boys and I had the most amazing stay at Lemon Tree Cottage; to the point where we wanted to stay longer. Everything we needed to recharge and relax. The stay could not have been any better. Thank you

Complete Recharge

Gorgeous location peaceful and beautiful outlook from nearly every room in the house.. This home has everything you will need and is beautifully decorated..We enjoyed the pool with the great weather we had.. only thing I missed was a couple of pool lounges would be nice


Fantastic cosy little cottage surrounded with beautiful scenery and wildlife.

Great location

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!

Luxury accommodation set in beautiful surroundings. House was perfect for 4 couples. A wonderful and relaxing 5 night getaway. A negative feature is that water from showers completely covers floors in smaller ensuites. Also window coverings in bathrooms could be installed.

The Travelling Eight

Rayfields at Berry was a fantastic property, with a spectacular view overlooking the surrounding mountains and valleys. The owners met us upon arrival who were extremely accommodating and very helpful. The house and adjoining cottage were beautiful, very clean and inviting. The main house was great for two families and kids whilst the detached cottage provided space and privacy for another couple. Would definitely recommend!

A fantastic property

I went away as a mum with two other mums for a relaxing weekend. This was the perfect location. It was quiet, warm, well equipped and a joy to spend time in. We had the best best best time and are desperate to go back again sometime soon. Would highly recommend.

Relaxing Weekend

We had a wonderful few days in this property. Surrounded by beautiful trees, and with many lovely spots to sit and relax. We loved the pool, especially as we were there for some very hot days. The upstairs of the house gets very hot on heatwave days, so we were glad of the fans. The downstairs has air conditioning and stays lovely and cool.

Beautiful place to relax

I took my team away to Sky Ridge this year for our annual corporate retreat. Apart from the stunning views and innovative architecture, Sky Ridge perfectly suited a 3 day 'live-in' for my crew and our facilitator. Our workshops were held in the lounge area in front of the cosy fireplaces facing the full height glazed wall where our coach could sit and guide us 'informal classroom style'. The self contained bedrooms were stunningly appointed and the large farm house style kitchen set the scene for cooking and bonding together. For a corporate retreat, everyone felt right at home.

Perfect Corporate Retreat

This spacious home had plenty of room for our group of eight and with each bedroom having it's own ensuite was a real plus! Lots of wildlife to see. Just a short drive to the village. We will definitely return.


Beautiful secluded getaway. Great kitchen and amenities. Great place to get away.

Beautiful country house

We had a long overdue girls weekend at Braeside. This property has everything you could want, such a beautiful location, fabulous finishes, beautifully styled. The booking process and communication with with Kangaroo Valley Escapes was excellent. Highly recommended

Amazing property

I loved my stay at Moosewood. It was excellent to witness the beautiful nature surrounding the house. The home itself was beautiful and was developed in a way the supported guest comfort and ease.

An beautiful place to unwind

Our family had a wonderful stay at Platypus Bend enjoying the gardens and amazing house which was very well provisioned. The kids loved collecting the eggs each morning andxsearcjing for the wombats that we knew were there but just couldn't find! Well be back.

Great family weekend away at Platypus Bend!

My partner and I had an amazing experience and stay at the property, it was sparkling clean, renovated, comfortable and quiet. It was tucked away yet only moments to town, we would definitely stay again and highly recommend to future guests. The property management team were prompt and professional, highly recommend!

Lovely property tucked away yet close to town

All that we wanted

Great family weekend

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay. This is a wonderful property for families especially with kids as there is so much to keep everybody entertained and off the devices in the house. We found it hard to drag ourselves away each day to go exploring. But you won't be disappointed with the local area, as the property is within easy reach of so much natural beauty and many local attractions. Even though it was the middle of winter you never felt it as the fire in the lounge room heated the house to perfection - crispy warm and so cosy. There was also everything you needed to cook up a storm and sit down for a lovely family dinner at the central table. We also got to see lots of wildlife including Herbie the properties very own wombat. I would recommend to my family and friends.
