The Birdhouse is a family friendly house ideal for a quiet retreat after spending the day visiting Jamberoo Action Park, the Southern Highlands, or the beach at Kiama. It has 4 bedrooms - 2 queen rooms, a small room containing 2 single beds, and a small bunkroom which sleeps 4. The lounge room contains a wood burning fire, comfortable leather lounges, and a little table suitable for games/jigsaws etc (some games and jigsaws are provided).
There is a large separate dining room leading off the fully equipped kitchen. There is one bathroom downstairs, with an ensuite attached to the main bedroom upstairs.
Underneath the other queen room is a TV/games area. Please bring your own DVDs as there is very limited TV reception (and please note there is no WiFi).
The rates indicated do not include sheets or towels. If you would like linen provided, please consider staying next door at Belwood Retreat.
The Birdhouse is set on 50 private acres of unspoilt bushland with a mixture of rainforest and tall eucalyptus forest. Three mountain streams run through the property and it supports a wide variety of native plants, animals and especially birdlife. Lyre birds display and call around the house throughout winter. Wombats are regularly seen at night and wallabies can be seen in the early morning and evening. (Being surrounded by bush, you will sometimes hear animals running across the roof, and we occasionally get a small marsupial called an antechinus in the house, but they do no harm and leave of their own accord).
It is a lovely place for adults and children alike. Peace and tranquillity and the chance to finally relax for the adults, abundant space and adventure for the kids.
