Hello, my name is Ben and Kookaburra Cottage is in my backyard. The previous owner of our house was an artist and used it as a studio. I, however, cannot draw. I have traveled plenty using airbnb so here we are, renting it out!

The space
So folks, it's really important that you read this bit because it's really important that you know what you are booking!
- It's called Kookaburra Cottage for a reason; there's a family of Kookaburras who live in our yard and they will give you a shout at dawn. Then they seem to roll over and go back to sleep and so do we.
- The bathroom is in the main house, not the cabin, but it is all yours. The main house is visible in the photos so you can see it's not far and there's a light on at night, but it's still important that you know the cabin has no ensuite : )
- You will have the use of your own mini fridge and decking, plus the BBQ on the verandah of the main house.
- The cottage is insulated and has a heater and gets toasty in winter, and in the summer there is a fan and fly screens on the windows for some airflow.
- If you are up early enough you may see the rock wallabies having a nibbly breakfast in the back yard. There are also a couple of King Parrots who live nearby and will eat out of your hand if you are patient enough.
*NB: for long term guests, an arrangement can be made to share the kitchen.

Guest access
You are welcome to access and use both verandahs and the backyard, as well as your bathroom and cabin of course. Please bear in mind that in the main house we live with housemates plus our young children and a jack russell, so please don't judge the main house - toddlers make it a bit chaotic.

Other things to note
We are dog friendly but the yard is not fenced so if you don't trust your dog to stick close by and don't want it to be on a long lead, then I'm afraid our place isn't suitable.

Blaxland, New South Wales, Australia

It's a very relaxed, family area with lots of bushland and gum trees around. It's a great base for exploring from.

I'm Ben a mountains local for the last 20 odd years. I’ve travelled a lot and used airbnb both as a host and guest for years. My two daughters and I have a our dream spot on the Bush front and decided to share the view and our cabin to other travellers. Airbnb tells me I should tell you my life motto. I can't decide if it's 'do what you love; love what you do' or 'open another bottle of red'. Maybe they are actually the same thing...
