5 star comfort in secluded paradiseLiana Z - 12th January 2024
From the moment you walk in , you immediately have a tranquil feeling. The property is breathtaking with a stunning view of the escarpment. All creature comforts are catered for, creating a memorable getaway.
House and surrounds are stunningStephanie - 16th January 2023
We had a brilliant long weekend at Black Star - the house and surrounds are stunning, the house is really well equipped & the beds are very VERY comfy - something we always love to discover! The pool was a dream (our little ones barely left it) and with so many places to put your feet up we couldn’t have had a more relaxing stay. We’d love to visit again.
Incredible place with amazing views.Philipp - 3rd December 2022
Incredible place with amazing views. Loved not being able to see a single other structure in the expansive views of the valley. Waking to kangaroos in the yard an added plus! The hosts were super responsive and accommodating. Can't wait to come back.

A sensational stay - highly recommended!
Sensational!Anonymous - 30th November
Staying at Blackstar in Kangaroo Valley is nothing short of sensational! As soon as you walk in the front door the house oozes beautifully designed interiors and we felt like we were in a 6-star country home where no expense was spared to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We enjoyed the large entertaining desk, the massive kitchen which was great for cooking for a large group, the open fireplace, the expansive views of the luscious valley, the herb garden and all the special little touches which made our stay a wonderful experience. Very close to the actual town, great bushwalks and other family activities. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful!!Anonymous - 30th November
The property is beautiful. Exceptional views across Kangaroo Valley. Extremely comfortable, understated luxury. Quiet landscape, but only a quick drive into town for some action. We look forward to returning with our family again soon.
Great Location - Stunning Home!Anonymous - 30th November
Lovely stay at the property. Beautifully styled, quiet spot out of town but not so far that it's difficult to reach quickly. Gorgeous views and fun to see kangaroos bounding past as you shower!
Fantastic stayAnonymous - 30th November
This home is perfect for a group, whether for a family getaway or weekend away with friends. Along with the breathtakingly beautiful location, the home's amazing features from the bathtub in the main bedroom suite to the new installed pool and stunning art collection really set this property apart. A stay at Black Star is highly recommended!
AmazingAnonymous - 30th November
I took my partner here for a birthday getaway. It was absolutely stunning. When you enter the property the view blows you away. The kitchen was a delight to cook in and we had everything that we needed. We were happy that there was aircon as it gets hot in the valley. The property was located not far from town and from some fabulous swimming spots. I'd stay here again.
Amazing, Relaxing and ModernAnonymous - 30th November
Highly recommend this lovely property! The living and dining surrounds a beautiful fireplace which everyone can enjoy. The kitchen is modern and the beds are 5 star. It's a must stay if you're traveling to KV.
Twinkle, twinkle, black star!Anonymous - 30th November
Situated on barrengarry mountain in kangaroo valley, our designer barn, @blackstarcountryescape is proving impossible to leave. featuring the most luscious interiors and state-of-the-art furnishings, -black star' is truly a unique and luxurious escape. grand windows and doors provide uninterrupted views of the mountains, mist and sky. -black star' is an oversized barn that is unlike anything we've ever seen or experienced. it is a feast for the senses. the locals could not have been more welcoming and are so thankful for all the visitors coming through their little villages following an incredibly tough (almost) year starting with fires ravaging their lives, followed by travel bans. now is the time to escape and help where we can!

My mother in law, sisters in law and I stayed at this very special property for a girls weekend. None of us wanted to leave. Beautifully appointed, 20 min walk into town, quiet, amazing birds & bushwalking. Just beautiful. Thank you!
Stunning propertyAnonymous - 30th November
