Private bedroom(s) in designer built home with 14" ceilings. Outdoor spa. Polished wooden floors. Tranquil and quiet, super clean and modern - while also retaining some rustic charm. An Oasis from a busy life. Come relax and enjoy!

Rooms are primarily let on a 'two guests per room' basis, but one-per-room is possible at an extra fee.

The space

Located in a prestigious, quiet, residential area, just over 5 minutes drive to Bowral, Milton Park and other popular local attractions. Long distance views of the gorgeous Southern Highland countryside.

The private lane is an oasis of peace and tranquillity from your busy life.

Very well presented and outfitted, this home is a joy to live in. A homey design wraps around the living room, and together with very high ceilings, you are surrounded by a spacious, appealing environment, free of clutter.

Well appointed kitchen stocked with coffee, tea, paper towel, salt, pepper and other basics along with crockery, cookware and cutlery.

Double lock up garage.

Come enjoy a quiet getaway in the Southern Highlands.

Occasionally I have a workaway helper with domestic duties. If here, they are lovely, and keep away if you want space, or interact if you want to socialise or as help for yourself.

Come enjoy a quiet getaway in the Southern Highlands - and be looked after!

Interaction with guests

Happy to meet and chat, but I'm not always there. I'm a published author, Commando, investigator, and spend a lot of time traveling. I'm social, and happy to advise local attractions and give advice.

We had a very comfortable and happy stay here, the house was very spacious, clean and cozy. The area is lovely, very quiet and peaceful, and the spa was perfect for the winter. There are lots of games and activities to keep everyone entertained, such as a retro arcade machine, Wii, poker set, and plenty of board games. The only issue we had was with the TV, which was broken and extremely difficult to turn on. We spent half a day trying to get it on, but once on it was fine. However, Chris and Sam were extremely helpful and did everything they could to explain the best way to get the TV working. They explained that it was a recent issue and will probably be getting a new TV soon. Overall we are all extremely happy with our stay and would recommend to anyone, its family friendly or perfect for a group of friends! Chris and Sam were very helpful and quick to respond to any questions, and were lovely to talk to. Their house manual also had all information needed for the stay. 5 stars :)

Even though this is in a residential area it's still very close to Bowral - only a 5 minute drive, so its the best of both worlds. Very comfortable and everyone was very happy.
