Birdsong, Barrengarry, Kangaroo Valley - 4pm check out Sundays and Public Holidays, except Peak Season
Nestled beneath the magnificent Barrengarry escarpment with sweeping views across Kangaroo Valley to the mountain range opposite, lies Birdsong.
If you appreciate solitude and being surrounded by nature but like to take your rustic with a side of luxe, Birdsong might just be your new favourite place. The cottage has been beautifully reimagined in modern country style and sits on five lush green acres backed by ancient rainforest.
Under two hours' drive from Sydney, the four-bedroom cottage is an ideal country retreat for couples, families, or a group of friends. The king bed in the master bedroom overlooks a small wooden deck (perfect for your morning coffee) to old-growth cedar trees filled with the sounds of birdsong. A beautiful ensuite adds to the feeling of quiet luxury.
Down the panelled hallway are two further queen bedrooms, one with its own bathroom. The fourth bedroom has both a queen and a loft bed and can sleep two adults, or alternatively makes a fun retreat for two or three children. The house can sleep eight guests comfortably.
It's easy to throw together a quick meal or indulge your cooking passions in the chef's kitchen, which features a Smeg oven, dishwasher, Nespresso machine and microwave. If that sounds like too much effort, the cafes of Kangaroo Valley are under ten minutes' drive away. The deck features a gas barbecue and eight-seater outdoor setting with picture-perfect views over the pool and mountainside.
On cooler days, the cosy open log fire beckons after your mountain walks; sit in the leather chair and browse the extensive book collection or just gaze out through the seven-metre picture window to the pastures and escarpment beyond. The sunset views are spectacular - but the ever-changing panorama will keep you captivated throughout your stay. The fire pit, perched high with mountain views, is perfect for endless marshmallows and hot chocolate shared with friends. On lazy summer weekends, sip a cold gin and tonic and enjoy some sunshine by the eight-metre mineral swimming pool.
The lush gardens are a joy to explore with grassy lawns, a paddock with dramatic views to enjoy a sunset picnic, and established trees and flowerbeds that attract wildlife including wallabies, kangaroos, wombats, fairy wrens, lyrebirds and owls.
Modern comforts are catered for, with reverse-cycle air conditioning, WiFi (satellite), and a Bluetooth music system. Towels, pool towels and luxury bedlinen are provided and there is a washer and dryer.
The property has a fenced pool and an unfenced dam, and while children are warmly welcomed, they must be supervised at all times.

Amazing locationCass - 29th October 2023
Amazing location for a quiet weekend away. The views were spectacular.
SpectacularStephen - 14th October 2023
We loved our stay! The house is in a beautiful location - secluded and surrounded by bushland but also only 15 minutes from the cafes and shops of Bowral, Berrima etc. Extremely well equipped, cosy and loads of toys and games for kids. Absolutely perfect for a family getaway. Thanks!
Didn't dissapoint!Maree - 20th May 2023
From start to finish the weekend was perfect and Birdsong didn't disappoint! The house was very well appointed, and also family friendly with our three generations and little pooch feeling very comfortable and at home. Thanks, we will be back!
Everything about this place was spectacular.Anonymous - 30th November
Everything about this place was spectacular. The house is exactly as it looks in the photos and we instantly felt at home the moment we stepped inside. We were a group of 5 people and there was plenty of space to spread out and relax. We spent our days exploring the surrounding areas and enjoyed the late afternoon/evenings by the pool. It's hard to pick a favourite thing about this place as there are so many- sunsets, relaxing in the pool, listening to the chorus of birds, cooking delicious meals in the large kitchen, quietness. The list goes on. Our group left feeling relaxed, re-energised and ready to head back to Sydney. Definitely an excellent way to spend a long weekend. No doubt we will be back again.
What a wonderful property!Anonymous - 30th November
What a wonderful property! Secluded, surrounded by an amazing view and complete with luxury. My group selected this listing to celebrate my partner's 30th birthday. Every part of the home is thoughtfully designed, from comfortable bedding, clean bathrooms and the cozy indoor fireplace. The chef's kitchen was an absolute highlight and we enjoyed the open plan of the dining space. The host always responded quickly to our questions. Thank you for hosting us at this beautiful property!
Peace at BirdsongAnonymous - 30th November
We wanted a few days away to enjoy some peace and found it at Birdsong. The home had everything we needed to refresh after what a year! Could not recommend more highly and will be back.
