Description

Located within easy walking distance to Kangaroo Valley Village, Kookaburra Hill is an award winning architect designed home set on 5 acres with beautiful gardens, a pool and breathtaking views of Wedding Cake Mountain and beyond. The gorgeous scenery can be taken in from the wall to wall double glazed windows in every room. The house is set 200m back from the road to ensure privacy and quiet.

An extensive renovation was completed in June 2015 and Kookaburra Hill is more spacious and comfortable than ever before. The house features a brand new kitchen, 3 queen bedrooms with luxury mattress toppers and linen, a full bathroom featuring a deep cast iron bath and an additional toilet, a huge open plan living and dining area with cathedral ceilings, loft and wood burning fireplace, and additional living area with a 60” TV. It comfortably sleeps 6 adults and offers additional accommodation for 2 more, if required. The house has fully ducted air conditioning and heating in addition to the fireplace and ceiling fans.

Kookaburra Hill’s prize-winning garden has been featured on Australia's Open Garden program. There are 2 acres with over 370 heritage roses which bloom most of the year and manicured lawns in the front of the house, a salt-water in-ground solar heated pool behind the house, stunning views of the surrounding valley and mountains, a one acre home paddock up above the pool with a large grass terrace perfect for ball games and more than 2 acres of bushland on the hill above Kookaburra Hill where wallaroos graze occasionally. Help yourself to delicious produce from the garden and cook up a meal inside or outdoors there is a wonderful outdoor kitchen with Ilve stove, a large sink, refrigerator and dishwasher.

The new owners love to entertain and have young children and a dog, so the house and grounds are child and pet friendly and set up well for families or groups of friends to have a fabulous time. Well behaved, mature dogs who are up to date with flea, tick and worm treatment are most welcome. There is an outdoor enclosed area to contain your pet when you go out and the front of the property is fenced when the driveway gate is shut.

Kookaburra Hill is proud to have 5 star Stayz ratings from 23 of the many guests who have stayed over the past 8 years. As some of the comments reveal, many guests return year after year or refer friends. It is always a delight to read unsolicited comments.

Please note that Kookaburra Hill is no longer a bed & breakfast; guests will have the house, pool and grounds to themselves for the duration of their stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtaking Valley Views We had an excellent stay at Kookaburra Hill. The views across the valley are spectacular and the level lawn at the back of the property is perfect for our young kids (2, 5 & 6). The garden is visible from inside the property so we were able to watch our kids playing outside while we had a few pre-dinner drinks in the kitchen area. The large wood fire was more than capable of heating the large open plan area in the middle of winter and we liked that there was no TV in that area - we didn't miss it. The smaller lounge area (with TV) served as the kids rumpus room. For larger groups, one bath/shower may be an issue but I think the 4th (master) bedroom (probably with en-suite) can be booked for an additional fee. It was locked and inaccessible during our stay. We will definitely be staying at Kookaburra Hill in the future. It's in a great location within walking distance to the village and we found it to be very well-equipped for our family of 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice property The only bad thing about the property was the bathroom. Only one sharing with 6 adults, but we coped. Beautiful house and pool area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from lovely aspect lovely property, with three comfortable bedrooms, but felt the living room area was far too small for three adults and two teenagers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paradise in the Valley “The best holiday ever” was chorused by both our girls of our wonderful stay at Kookaburra Hill. Pamela is such lovely lady and made our stay so special. Her home baked scones and pancakes were beyond delicious. The girls loved collecting the chook eggs everyday, watching gorgeous Moffit the alpaca and cuddling the adorable golden retriever Olivia whom they fell deeply in love with. The beautiful accommodation is well presented and thoughtfully catered for. The pool so warm it felt like a bath. The gardens are stunning, so lovely to be able to pick fruit from the trees and vegetables from the veggie patch. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We did not want to leave and hope to return very soon.
