Look unhindered over the Yarra Valley. This large room has a glass wall that views the mountains, forest and sky. Kangaroos right by the house on the lawn in the morning, it is the ideal getaway retreat.
There is a private ensuite and copious space. This is the original master room of the house.

The space

The view from this room is magnificent. The room is huge and you wake to the kangaroos on the lawn. Dash into the pool in the dawn light. With its own ensuite, this room is the original master bedroom within the house.

AMAZING ! This place is a little paradise for nature and animals lovers. The house is splendid, with a breathtaking view on the mountain. You wake up in the morning and enjoy the view of wilds kangourous playing in the morning light. Also there is two tamed kangourous that you can be sure to see hoping around the house, very cute ! You can also enjoy a walk with the company of the 2 really friendly golden retrievers. The bedroom is incredible, you just feel like in a cocoon. WILL COME BACK FORE SURE !

Second time at the wombat room but still a lovely and enriching experience nevertheless. Lots of kangaroos, friendly dogs and cat, and a beautiful view - what more to ask for? Will be back for a third experience. Take care Hermann and Louise!

Kangaroo Manor is truly magical. We had a great time, the house is beautiful, amazing views and close to great wineries and walks. We felt very welcome and at home thanks to Hermann and his gorgeous pets. It is a great place to experience the beauty of the Australian bush, bird life and of course the delightful kangaroos!

Absolutely amazing, the pictures do not do it justice of how magical it truly is. We loved every minute, from the views, hospitality, trails, all the amazing animals. It was my favorite place I have ever stayed. Highly recommended if you are looking for a wonderful place to relax, also if you are an animal lover like us this place will be heaven, the dogs, cat, horses, and of course the kangaroos made it a once in a life time experience. I cannot say enough good things about this place. We will be back 100%. Thank you Hermann and Louise for opening your beautiful home and being such wonderful hosts.

Having stayed in many wonderful Airbnb's over the past couple years it is hard to say which is the best but not any longer as one clearly stands out- Kangaroo Manor. We had a fantastic time at Louise and Hermann's beautiful place. I could go on and on about the home craftsmanship, the views and the feeling of being at your own private wildlife sanctuary but you really need to see for yourself. We will be back!
