Grey Gums is an owner built, eco friendly, charming, unique house, offering great value accommodation, hand crafted from recycled materials and sandstone coloured Timbercrete bricks. Surrounded by tall gums, the house is set on 12 acres. It features quality, woodwork fittings and furnishings for you to enjoy. It is light and spacious and exudes serenity.

There are 4 bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed and one has a king single also. We supply quality linen for you. There is a 3 way bathroom and an ensuite bathroom with the master bedroom. 3 spacious showers and 2 bath tubs add to the comfort of your stay. This will enable many guests to get ready for a wedding or to relax after a long day in the outdoors.

We can accommodate a small 10th person on our fold out bed.

There is a hot outdoor shower and bathtub in which to soak providing soothing relaxation under the stars amidst the serenity of grey gums, scribbly gums and other native bush, rain or shine.

Enjoy al fresco dining in our new outdoor, covered area.

There are 4 sets of outdoor tables and chairs for different uses.

Outdoor fire pit surrounded by rustic seating enhances your stay on cosy nights.

We provide all the wood for the outdoor fire pit and the indoor wood heater.

View the night sky and constellations with no light pollution.

There is a large, well equipped modern kitchen with a coffee maker and an outdoor barbecue.

A selection of teas, coffee, milk and olive oil are provided.

You are welcome to add to your meals with tasty treats from our kitchen garden and citrus trees when the veggies, herbs and fruit are in season.

As we make our own electricity and solar hot water, collect rain water, and take care of sewage on site, you can minimize your environmental impact. We recycle all the plastics, metal, glass, paper and organics in the bins provided. You don't need to bring bottled water as the rain water is very clean to drink and tastes fantastic but is safe as we use a UV light to kill microbes, not chlorine.

Relax in front of the cosy, wood fired heater to watch TV ----- or lose yourself in a good book. There is a variety of indoor games and lots of perfect holiday reading in our collection of books and magazines for both children and adults and many nooks for relaxing.

Kangaroos, wombats and a variety of native birds frequent the property, which backs on to a nature reserve overlooking the Kangaroo River. Spring time is the time to see the echidnas out on a walkabout. For those energetic souls, or those who love a casual stroll, this provides for some very scenic bush walking. There is also a 150m bushwalk on the property with many local plants identified and discussed. Due to our natural setting, with many wild animals and that we border the Kangaroo River Nature Reserve, which has fox (and DOG!) poisoning bait stations, we cannot be a pet friendly accommodation.

Bushwalk (medium difficulty) for approximately 30 minutes to the Kangaroo River through scribbly gum forest and dry and shallow creek bed for a refreshing swim.

A ping pong table, pool table and foozball table are also provided for your enjoyment. There is plenty of space for backyard ball games too.

We realize that it can be difficult to keep connected in Kangaroo Valley so we offer free, internet connection and a cordless phone for local calls and incoming calls. There is also an ipod dock on which to play your music.

We are keen to keep it rented and will do what we can to accommodate you. The owners/managers live on site and will do whatever we can to assist you to make your stay an enjoyable experience.

It is only 5 mins by car or a 30 minute stroll to Kangaroo Valley's boutique coffee shops and cafes, as well as interesting shops and galleries to browse.

Kangaroo Valley is a cyclists' paradise. There are a number of excellent road and mountain bike trails to enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we hoped for! We stayed at Grey Gums over the weekend for a friends wedding. It was the perfect space for a group of friends to spend quality time, sitting by the fire, cooking in the fantastic modern kitchen (with veggies collected from the veggie patch) and just enjoying the serenity! All details have been considered at Grey Gums - luxury bathrooms, comfortable warm beds, fire wood ready to use, coffee machine & coffee supplied!.. The list goes on. Such good value! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquil & Beautiful House Helen and Dennis have built a beautiful house and provided a very thoughtful and generous holiday home - they have thought of everything, and all the kind extra touches are appreciated - incredibly well equipped kitchen, flowers in all the rooms, lots of local information, beautiful sheets, super clean, great books and games etc. This is a lovely place to stay - the house is charming and cosy, and very inviting with plenty of room for everyone inside and out, but the highlight is sitting out in the garden, the fire pit, the creek and walk to the river. Thank you!
