"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. Please understand that this is a working farm and for safety reasons, you cannot access the surrounding paddocks.
However, you can see the livestock from the comfort of the well-maintained gardens and grassed area on which the house is located.
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

“Beautiful scenery, super quiet and relaxing place. We made life lasting memories here. The location is secluded but that is what we wanted and more importantly it’s pretty close to Sydney.”
Yousef, July 2017
“This is an ideal place to get away from the city’s chaos and catch up with some friends. The house is fantastic It pretty much has everything we need and it’s very clean. It definitely exceeds my expectations and we all have decided to come back again. The view is nice, and not far from Mittagong or the look out. We had a great time here Thank you so much for such great accommodation”

“Clean, comfortable and pretty. Staying in this house was the breathe of fresh air we were seeking for a much needed break. The views from the lounge area are spectacular and receiving visits from the cows and dogs make it feel like you’re really in the country.”
