About this listing
Nestled in the green hills above Kiama, with panoramic ocean views, this country home is the perfect family get away. Set on a working dairy farm, this home has been sypathically updated to provide modern comforts whilst retaining the charm of old.
The house is set amongst beautiful lawns and gardens, with the most amazing ocean views. All the rooms are large and airy with 10ft ceilings and beautiful features including stained glass windows and original cedar boards. Enjoy the large living spaces or sit on the front porch and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine.
There are 3 large bedrooms - the Master Bedroom has a Queen Bed, sitting area/day bed and ensuite (shower and toilet). The second bedroom has a queen bed and the 3rd bedroom has 2 single beds.
The bathroom is also very spacious, boasting a
Double shower (great water pressure) claw foot bath and custom vanity. It also has a heat lamp and heated tiles. The toilet is separate.
The kitchen has been recently renovated, with a beautiful large timber island bench with stools. We have a large Miele oven with gas cook top. The kitchen has everything you need to produce a beautiful meal including all dishes, appliances, utensils etc. We also provide kitchen basics - tea, coffee, sugar, oil, salt, pepper etc.
There is an outside BBQ and utensils for those wanting to cook outdoors.
The house has fully ducted air conditioning - keeping it cool in summer and cosy the in winter. Set the temperature to what suits you. (Please note: while there are a number of fireplaces in the house, they are all closed and purely ornamental)
You hire the whole house, including gardens, garage and carport. The driveway is shared, as the dairy is located behind the house. We minimise all noise from the dairy and most guests say they don't even hear the cows being milked in the morning! (4am!!)
Interaction with guests
We will meet you on arrival to show you through the house and make sure you have everything you need. We like to provide our beautiful dairy products for your stay, so on arrival let us know what flavours of gelato you'd like (along with milk and natural yoghurt) and we'll make sure you've got plenty! We are also happy to arrange a time to see the cows being milked and to feed a calf - if this is something you would enjoy.
We are situated on Saddleback Mountain, approx 3km (3mins drive) from central Kiama. We are a few minutes from all the local beaches, shops, cafes, restaurants etc.
We have no direct neighbours and uninterrupted rural views
Kiama Train Station is a short 3 minute drive away. A taxi one way is approx $7.50
Parking for 2-3 cars available on site (more by arrangement)
Other things to note
We are a working farm, and whilst we try to minimise any noise and movement of vehicles (trucks, tractors etc) we can't guarantee total quiet. If you have concerns or are particularly sensitive please feel free to discuss with me prior to booking and I can detail what to expect.
The house can only sleep 6 Adults. We occasionally make arrangements for extra children, but this must be discussed prior to booking and is the owners discretion.
We ask that you discuss any plan to have more than 6 people over with us before making arrangements. This includes for brunch, dinners etc. As we are a rural property with limited parking and using a septic system we need to make sure proper arrangements have been made.
Dogs to be discussed.
No smoking inside.
