The walls of glass, offers a cosy but open space to enjoy the vast Kangaroo Valley view and surrounding escarpment and waterfalls. This contemporary home offers all that you require for a peaceful, relaxed stay in the country.The decks leading off from the main living space creates a perfect backdrop for alfresco dining. Enjoy your meals under our grape vine covered pergola or perhaps in the sun drenched sandstone courtyard.The separate TV/Sitting Room with wide screen TV (pre loaded with an assortment of movies) and its own Jet Master gas fire is the ideal secluded, cosy space. This room also houses a double sofa bed and half bathroom for two extra guests.The four bedrooms are generous in size and are separate from the living area. The master room encompasses an ensuite and its own deck to sit and enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the views. The three remaining bedrooms are situated close to their own one and a half bathrooms. A portable cot, high chair and baby bath are available on request so that even our smallest guest is well catered for.Our modern kitchen is fully equipped and ready for any creative chef. It includes a hot rock grill, four gas burner stove, microwave, fridge/freezer, oven and the luxury of a dishwasher and a Expressi capsule coffee machine (we provide a daily cup of coffee).Even though this property is very private, it is only a 7 minute drive from the village and local pool or a 30 minute drive from the famous Seven Mile surf beach. Alternatively, we have the advantage of being situated only 15 minutes drive from fresh water rock pools in which you can swim in a quiet, secluded mountain setting WE DO NOT INCREASE TARIFFS FOR WEEKEND STAYS DURING SCHOOL HOLIDAYS.

We had the most amazing time here. Thank you for being so wonderful and letting us stay. We go away quite often but your house was by far one of the most magical places to stay. We will definitely be coming back here again. Matt and Jade Oct 2014 Dear Caroline Thanks you for making our stay here one that we will never forget. You are right - this is a beautiful slice of heaven. The house, the horses, the grounds and the scenery are just perfect! We loved meeting Starsky and Hutch. The home is filled with warmth and comfort. It is very accommodating and has exceeded our expectations. We can’t wait to revisit again and share these memories with our family and friends. We will definitely be spreading the word about your beautiful home. Best wishes and lots of kindness, Chanel, Nathan, Bahia and Tony Nov 2014 Caroline Thank you for everything. We had an amazing time here in Kangaroo Valley and the entire family enjoyed their stay. My caught throughly enjoyed waking up to Starsky and Hutch and petting them. The view was phenomenal. The house is impressive and overall we all felt relaxed. We all came from different parts of the world and as we travel home our stay here will be the most memorable experience. Thank you once again and we look forward to revisiting. Steve, Helena and friends Nov 2014 Dera Caroline Thank you for letting us share your beautiful home.

Mum will remember her 60th birthday weekend with great memories of the time we spent here. We look forward to revisiting again. Matthew, Emma, Evie and Layla Nov 2014 The French family enjoyed their stay here! We saw kangaroos, a fox, cows, parrots, llamas… every evening. It was quiet and lovely. Thanks Caroline Veronique, Jean-Claude, Bernard and Camille Jan 2015 Dear Caroline Thank you for opening up your stunning holiday home. We have had such a delightful weekend. The stars, gully, peaceful nature and opportunity to spend quality time with family was perfect.
