"Welcome to this Happy Place!"
"Cooinda" is Aboriginal for "Happy Place"
"Kia-Ora" Lane, where it is located, is Maori for "Welcome"
It is indeed a beautiful, relaxing, happy place where we welcome families or groups wanting to escape the pace of the city.
The house is perfectly positioned atop a knoll with panoramic views of gently undulating countryside. It enjoys a northerly aspect basking in sunlight and views from all the living areas. The house itself is fully fenced with a flat grassy area for children to play, including cubby house and play frame.
There are 4 resident curious alpacas that look forward to greeting you and there are cattle in some of the outer paddocks. On your walk down to the bubbling creek you may find the natural springs or some of the large wombat holes housing these gentle creatures.
The accommodation has been set up with larger groups and your comfort in mind. The kitchen is newly renovated and fully equipped including dishwasher. There is an outdoor gas BBQ located on the back porch. There are four living areas in all - formal and casual living and dining areas. There is a huge open fireplace at one end of the house and a large wood heater at the other - all firewood supplied - bring the marshmallows!!
The bathrooms are both newly renovated and the bedrooms all have separate heaters so come to the country for that fresh crisp air, knowing you have a cozy base from which to explore.

“We were most impresses with everything! Great location with fabulous views. We had 3 families here for the weekend. We were in close proximity to the “falls”, the shops in Bowral, with plenty of room for the children to run around outside – while the parents enjoyed sitting around the large dinner table and comfy lounges. It was great having sheets, towels, toilet paper and soap provided. The bathrooms were modern and clean. Thank you.”

"What a beautiful home to stay in! The setting is peaceful and idyllic, with beautiful views. The children had lots of room to safely play and explore outside, while the adults could relax inside in the large, comfortable, modern home. We have thoroughly loved our stay here, catching up with extended family. Thank you Highlands Holidays, your staff was extremely friendly and informative and we will definitely come back to stay at Cooinda again!"
