Nestled in our citrus and nut orchard is the 'Captain's Cabin'. A hideaway in your own private section of the garden, with an outdoor bath, ample cooking facilities inside and out, and fire pit, not to mention a comfortable queen bed with natural linen and towels, it's your base for the perfect Kangaroo Valley escape. A 5 minute walk from the village centre and 50m from the cycle and walking path, it's the perfect location too. Coffee machine, record player and provisions included.

The space
The cabin was initially refurbished using recycled materials where possible as a place for my dad (The Captain) to stay when he visited for extended periods from the UK, but during recent times we have decided to welcome other guests .

There are a few records to play on the record player but you can also browse The Nostalgia Factory and Halcyon Books in Kangaroo Valley to get your own secondhand records to play.

HEATING & FIRE PIT
There is a panel heater inside which provides a nice even warmth without being too hot - just cosy. It's an eco heater so you can leave it on overnight if you like, without too much concern. There is an electric blanket to use on the bed and hot water bottles provided. The fire pit on the pebbles next to the deck is a perfect way to unwind. Bags of wood are available at the service station in Kangaroo Valley and Glenmack Park just across the road.

COOLING
During summer, you can lie on the sun beds or hammock in your own private shady garden and watch the birds come and go, and then pour yourself a cool bath. A fan is provided during summer but there is no air-conditioning. The nut and mulberry trees shade the cabin well in summer. Across the road at the Kangaroo Valley Showground, is the local swimming pool which is a lovely place to cool down and take in the scenery and the river under the Hampden Bridge is a short drive or bike ride and a great place to swim and cool down.

COOKING
Inside you have a kitchenette with a convection microwave, a kettle, coffee machine, toaster and toasted sandwich machine. Outside on the deck there is a two burner gas cooktop with wok burner and a large sink for the dishes. During winter you can pick the Rangpur Limes from the tree out the window to put in your drinks and cooking and for a few weeks over summer pick the mulberries hanging by the deck.

Where you’ll be

Kangaroo Valley, New South Wales, Australia

We are located along the main road and right by the bike and walking path which takes you to farms and the historic cemetery one way and to the village pub, leadlight shop, fudge house and lolly shop, fabulous cafes, tennis courts, the river, the Pioneer Museum and the famous Hampden Bridge in the other direction, to name a few. There are also plenty of great gift shops and an amazing grocer/deli store.

When it's busy you can hear the pulse of Kangaroo Valley, occasionally catching the music on the breeze if there is a band playing in the pub beer garden.

The crowing of flocks of corella's flying over the river in the distance and overhead is spectacular and can mix with the buzz of cheering from a game of cricket across the road at the oval or depending on the direction of the breeze, the cows mooing at the local dairy farm.

Later on when these sounds die down you can sit and listen to the hum of insects in the trees and the crackling of the flames in the fire pit.
