Lovely weekend away
The place is in an excellent location and the property has been landscaped to perfection.
Inside was very clean and comfortable.
We were allowed into the larger living area which was perfect as we were five people.
All in all a great place to stay for the weekend.
Sam and his family were respectful guests who seemed to enjoy everything the Valley and AllambieGums had to offer. It was a pleasure to host his group as they attended his son’s wedding.
It was very peaceful
Out side sitting amoungst the trees was very relaxing
Delightful romantic hideaway
Allambie Gums is a WONDERFUL retreat in picturesque Kangaroo Valley. Easily accessible from what seems like a suburban street (although NO streets in Kangaroo Valley feel "suburban"!), a walk through the arch is transformative. Tall, regal gum trees ... bush ... lovely grounds. The unit has everything for a romantic weekend ... it is cosy but comfortable. All mod cons (limited cooking facilities ... but we didn't go away for the weekend to cook!). A small (but good two-person sized) swimming pool, various places to sit outside and sip wine ... TV and DVD player (with a selection of DVDs that made my partner salivate!) You need your own wi-fi (our Telstra mobile wifi worked fine on 4G. Other networks might be less reliable.).
Betty's Bar (a short walk or even shorter drive back across the bridge) does WONDERFUL pizzas (but phone them if you want take-away). Our spinach & cheese thin crust pizza was absolutely simple and wonderful.The General Cafe in the village (maybe 15 min walk ... we drove) is THE only place to go for breakfast/brunch ... AMAZING and interesting breakfasts, with an Asian twist ... AND buy a loaf of their sourdough bread ... take it home, slice it, freeze it, and enjoy sourdough made with love afterwards.
Our weekend at Allambie Gums ... we did our share of just enjoying the ambience of the place ... plus some time in the Village ... plus a drive to Berry and Nowra (but not sure this drive added much ... next time, we'll just stay in Kangaroo Valley).
For a weekend away, two-hours south of Sydney, we recommend this without reservation.
Quiet and peaceful
It really is a very private house with access to a lovely garden area and labyrinth. It is well set up for 2 people, exceptionally clean and attractively decorated. So lovely to wake up to the sounds of birds.
Absolutely stunning, peaceful and well maintained cottage.
Had a great couple of days at Allambie gums, so stunning and quiet.
Big thanks to Cheryl for the great hospitality and freedom to use her wonderful property and to help with any questions about the area.
So much privacy!! It was great.
Great location so close to shops and activities all in walking distance.
After waking up to the birds singing we strolled down to the cafe in the Main Street to get breakfast and coffee then strolled back to relax at the cottage in the beautiful gardens.
Then strolled down to the kangaroo kayaks at the bridge and we paddled down the river and rapids for 2 hours where they picked us up and dropped us back at the bridge where we walked 2mins Back to the cottage. we couldn’t have asked for any more.
We would have stayed longer if we could have.
We will be back !!!

Well appointed, and a little oasis
A lovely little place, with everything you need. Excellent communication with the host too.
