A stilt house which elevates you to the treetops, Khan Cottage enjoys a spectacular outlook. We have 135 acres of rolling rainforest, pasture and creeks, plus a wraparound deck with views which go on forever. Swing in the hammock with only the call of the Whip birds to disturb you or settle down beside our roaring wood-burning stove. From the deck, hear the rush of the creeks after rainfall and the raucous call of rainforest birds and kookaburras in sunshine. You will be looking out over one of the most successful rainforest regeneration projects in the region yet unspoilt south coast beaches are less than fifteen minutes away.

Despite our faraway feel, vibrant Berry with its many cafes and shops is a five-minute drive from the house. Seven Mile Beach and Geroa Beach, boutique wineries and excellent restaurants are on our doorstep. You are also close to Kangaroo Valley and the stunning beaches of Jervis Bay National Park. The cottage is a two-hour drive from Sydney, south along the Princes Highway.

We, the owners, do not live on the property which means that the house, its environs, the mown path to the creek and beautiful views are all yours for the duration of your stay making Khan Cottage a very private and peaceful retreat for two to four people. Our housekeeper lives in Berry and is just a phone call away should you need her.


Khan Cottage is fully self-contained. The accommodation includes two bedrooms: one queensize with its own deck and one double bedroom, both supplied with quality linen and towels. The house is lovingly furnished and maintained and is equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, woodburning stove, gas heater, iPod docking station and DVD player. There is a minimum two-night stay.

Khan Cottage's rainforest restoration project.

As committed conservationists we have entered into a Registered Property Agreement keeping our land safe from development forever. We are regenerating our precious rainforest creeks and working hard to restore the flora on all our property - a pioneering endeavour for private landowners. Ten years ago, our creeks - like most in the Illawarra - were a mass of privet, lantana and other weeds. Today, uniquely in the locality, they are regenerating Illawarra Subtropical Rainforest, an endangered vegetation community. This on-going project recognised by a Federal Government Envirofund grant, is the result of much hard work and is where the proceeds from your stay are spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute tranquillity I highly recommended Khan Cottage. A beautiful, well maintained place with everything you need including a cosy fireplace. Beautiful tranquil surroundings with the sounds of birds and trickling water from the creek below. It was the perfect getaway from day to day life. My favourite part was spending time laying in the hammock on the veranda taking it all in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fortress of Solitude -So many Stars Khan Cottage is perfect for anyone wanting total privacy. The drive way is not a problem. Our car handled it without a thought. Its close to Berry and is amongst a sea of trees. At night we saw more stars than we had ever in out lifetimes. I now know why they call it the milky way. Perfect for just sitting and reflecting. Highly recommended for the Green change holiday :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cottage in a wonderful setting. Khan Cottage was exactly what I wanted for a recharge. In the morning all you could hear were the whip birds and in the afternoon all the birds were feeding on the flying insects. The cottage had everything we needed. We ate in every night as the food available in Berry was outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Location To sit on the deck of Khan Cottage transports you to another world. The view over Bundawallha Valley is beautiful, especially slowly swinging from the hammock! We found the cottage well equiped & very comfortable. However just a tip, maybe consider getting an electric kettle, it would be more economical & much quicker than waiting for the kettle to boil sitting on the gas stove! We would happily return to Khan & will recommend
