KOOKABURRA CABIN - cosy farm stay near Manly

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

"Kookaburra Cabin" is a self-contained NON-SMOKING two bed cabin set in a quiet location yet with easy access to all local amenities. FREE WIFI.

Close to the stunning Northern Beaches only 15 min to Manly.

Enjoy waking up to the sound of kookaburras, watch the endless bird life from your private verandah, relax in the tranquility of our semi-rural haven just 15 mins by car from the surf/restaurants in Manly Beach and 40 mins by bus/car to the centre of Sydney.

Perfect for a couple but also plenty of room for two couples or a family of four. One queen bedroom and one twin room are available (twin beds can be joined to make another double). Two car parking spaces are provided for the occupants of "Kookaburra Cabin".

You will see water dragons sunbathing on the lawn, kookaburras, fairy wrens, honey eaters, owls, cockatoos, our chickens and ducks roaming freely around the property, our two friendly dogs, our two sheep and of course the inquisitive horse who lives in the paddock next door.

** Please do not request to bring your own pets as our chickens and ducks roam freely and we cannot risk introducing animals who are not used to their constant presence. Too much temptation to chase/catch them! **

Owner's Response: Anita, Nick, Ricki, Zoe and Bazzer - you were the perfect guests. We miss seeing little Ricki's face at the window in the morning. The goat we talked about arrived today for a one week trial run. I'm hoping the other two little ones will join him!! I'll send some piccies of him being walked down the road by the kids. You'll have to pop in to meet the new family member/s soon!! Stay in touch and let us know how the new home goes. Love Bella, Dunc and the gang xxx (and of course Pumpy and Lulu!!)

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for hosting us. We live in a pet free unit, but I want my daughter to grow up like animal. Kookaburra cabin farm stay is first time my daughter lives surrounded by so many kinds of lovely animal. My husband and I also enjoyed our stay. We took a lot of photos to send to our relatives and for my daughter's grandparents to see. The photos came out very beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thank you Youli. It was lovely to see you, Jason, Amy and your mother-in-law enjoying the animals and the surroundings here. We know you live close by and hope you will choose to stay here again one day. As Amy gets older she will enjoy the interaction with the animals more and more. We are so pleased you had a good stay. Best wishes Bella
