The space

NEWLY RENOVATED COUNTRY COTTAGE 2 HOURS FROM SYDNEY
VISIT ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL VALLEYS

Our comfortably furnished two bedroom cottage has a prime position overlooking the 7th fairway of the Kangaroo Valley Golf & Country Club. With spectacular views towards the towering cliffs of the escarpment and over the lake on the course, Blue Gums Cottage offers a unique escape. It will appeal both to golfers looking to step directly onto the fairway or those just after a beautiful and tranquil spot to re-charge the batteries.

As an added bonus enjoy the resort facilities including swimming pool, tennis courts, picnic areas and gas barbecues scattered around the property's 80 acres of natural bushland. The views down the valley from the property will simply take your breath away and in winter the early morning mists will re-vitalize and invigorate your senses.

Many varieties of wildlife roam freely around the resort including kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, possums and native Australian birds such as kookaburras, kingfishers, king parrots, whip birds, swans and pelicans. Chances are you will come up close and personal with any number of the native residents in their natural habitats who always prove to be a great hit with both children and adults alike.

We can accommodate up to 6 persons with bedding comprising Q/S in both main and second bedroom, where there are also 2 additional bunks. Kitchen is newly renovated and fully equipped with latest mod cons and the living room is open plan leading onto the large deck with its expansive views. The cottage has split-system air-conditioning for comfort in all climates. The bathroom is brand spanking new.

There is everything you will need at Blue Gums plus those little extra touches of comfort, that will make your stay as a couple, family or small group of friends that little extra bit special.

Blue Gums Cottage is a privately owned property on the resort where you book directly with the owners so we can guarantee you personal and speedy attention to all your inquiries and the highest level of comfort and facilities when you visit.

Cabin was very cosy, warm and homely. It's a quite cabin right on the golf course which did not appear to get busy at all over the weekend, this gave the kids plenty of space to fly kites and run around. We saw a wombat on our first night 20 metres from the cabin! Recommend this place to any family wanting a quite place to relax!

The place is in a great location on the golf course, very well set up with all amenities you will need. Communication was good and we had no problems checking in or out. Perfect place to stay if you're in town for a wedding and love golf like us!

Blue Gums Cottage was a lovely, warm, self-contained place to stay. The kitchen and bathroom were well equipped and everything was neat and tidy. If planning to cook at home make sure you bring a ready supply of ingredients with you as there are limited grocery supplies nearby. The restaurants and cafes are great though! A great place for a quiet getaway.

Beautiful and spacious cottage – perfect for a weekend away with your friends or family. You really couldn't ask for anything else: comfy beds, great veranda (with BBQ), powerful shower, well-equipped kitchen, and lots of films, games, books etc. It's a short drive to the centre of Kangaroo Valley, and you have trees and wildlife right on your door stop, so it's very relaxing and scenic. Would definitely recommend!

A great place to be alone during the week. Very quiet and clean with everything one might need. Lots of birds and kangaroos. Bring groceries as there are very limited supplies at a local petrol station.

Nice little cottage. Was convenient for a wedding that took place at Kangaroo Vallry Bush Retreat.

Phil is a retired management analyst and Loretta sometimes works casually as a re-location manager. We have 4 grown-up sons and we love spending time with family, grandchildren and being active. We are happy to share our studio apartment in Sydney's northern suburbs with fellow travellers and our holiday homes in Jervis Bay and Kangaroo Valley. We have done house exchanges in the UK, US and Europe and love the different twist this puts on travelling and meeting people. We are very proud that we have now held continuous Airbnb SUPERHOST status for over the past 3 years.
