Welcome to "Le Mas" - a beautiful rustic country farmhouse modelled and named after those in Provence, France. The Le Mas annexe is a self sufficient house attached (but completely separate) to the main house.

The space

Le Mas is an 100 acre property in Penrose, Southern Highlands, NSW. We are just 2 doors down from the Sylvan Glen Guesthouse and wedding venue. Situated on the property is a main house that we live in, and a separate guest annexe (which is what's available for rent).

1 main bedroom: Queen bed with ensuite (sleeps 2)
1 loft landing bedroom: 1 Double bed, 1 single bed and 1 single trundle (sleeps 4).

Lounge room: 1 sofa double bed (sleeps 2)
Separate bathroom, kitchenette and dining table. The kitchenette comprises the basics of kettle, toaster, fridge and a convection microwave oven with 2 x hotplates on top (not a proper full sized cooker).

Outside there is a small wooden outdoor setting with chairs and a hooded gas Webber BBQ.

The house has underfloor heating as well as a slow combustion log fireplace - perfect for those cosy winter nights in the Southern Highlands.

Guests will have complete access to the whole property, except the main house (which is attached but separate to the annexe rental property).

The Southern Highlands is a beautiful and peaceful area, approximately 1 1/2 hours south of Sydney. It is also about the same distance west of Wollongong and north of Canberra.

Penrose is a small village of approximately 200 people, in between the neighbouring villages of Bundanoon (10 minutes away) and Wingello (5 minutes away). It has a thriving cafe, tennis courts and a train station.

Le Mas is very well situated for guests attending a wedding or function at Sylvan Glen, as we are only 2 doors down the road. It is conveniently located 10 minutes from the Hume Highway.

We can provide some accommodation for horses at a small additional cost, please discuss this with us upon booking if required.

The property is ideally situated between Penrose and Wingello State Forests - great for trail riding/walking/mountain bike riding. We are also not far from the villages of Bundanoon, Exeter and Sutton Forest, as well as the townships of Berrima and Moss Vale. There are several nice wineries in the area which are well worth a visit.

Caroline's place is a beautiful country property with rolling hills which is a pleasant drive to Bundanoon. We loved our stay touring the Southern Highlands as well as walking around the property. We even got to see three wombats including one on the property.

Caroline's home was wonderful. The place is quiet and the view is just amazing. It was a lovely stay and we got to relax a bit. We travelled with 2 toddlers and they just had such a wonderful time that they fell sleep right away at night.

This was a great place for a retreat weekend away. We enjoyed visiting the Berrima book barn and then relaxing back here with a BBQ dinner. It was very comfortable and clean. Caroline was very welcoming. Thank you for s great stay!

We were very pleased with our stay, and although short and sweet this time, we hope to be back for a longer visit in the future. It turned out to be even better than on the website with wonderful views over the garden. The loft is spacious, the kitchenette well-equipped, the bedrooms are comfortable, the building well-designed and quiet. Highly recommended for everyone - the best airbnb experience we had!

My husband, Nigel, and I bought this property in 2003 and initially we used it as a weekender for us and our two girls. In 2010/11 we added an extension onto the existing house and ultimately moved in permanently in June 2011. We love the lifestyle here in the highlands. Nigel is a keen cyclist, golfer, birdwatcher and champion veggie grower, while I enjoy horse riding (there are 3 horses on the property), tennis and gardening. After our daughter, Sarah, moved to Sydney the annexe became vacant and thus we decided to try our hand at Airbnb. Early days yet!
