Rainbow Reach cabin is an original golf course cabin that we have recently renovated and extended to make it beautifully spacious and liveable. It is flooded with light and has a luxurious country feel.
Rainbow Reach accommodates four people in comfort and style, promising a wonderful and relaxing stay for a couple, family or small group of friends. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a spacious living area with an awesome sofa, and timber decks front and back.
The main bedroom has a queen sized bed and an ensuite with a freestanding bathtub, and the second bedroom has two king single beds. The living area looks through large windows to the lovely expanse of green lawn out the front and views through the Casurina trees to the escarpment. The dining table seats six and we have just put in a gorgeous new kitchen (which isn’t in the photos yet – stay tuned!). There is a spacious wrap-around deck at the front, and a sweet verandah at the back, so that you can find a sunny or shady spot year-round for relaxing with a coffee and a book. We have planted a pretty garden that has grown up really nicely since the photos were taken, which makes the back verandah particularly lovely on a slow afternoon.
There is reverse cycle air conditioning, a wide screen TV with DVD player (and a few DVDs for you), and a nice big sound bar for playing tunes off your phone. It's important to note that we've deliberately made the cabin lo-fi - there is no internet or netflix - for a bit of enforced relaxation. We swear you won't miss it!!
We have a 2 night minimum stay, except on long weekends when we prefer a 3 night minimum.
About the resort …
The cabin is set within the Kangaroo Valley Golf and Country club, a beautiful golf resort set on about 150 acres just outside Kangaroo Valley village. It has an 18-hole championship golf course spread over undulating hills with spectacular views. You don't have to play golf to enjoy the cabin - we don't play and we love it here.
While the cabin is privately owned, it has unfettered access to the Resort’s facilities: tennis courts, BBQs, volley ball court, giant chess and swimming pool – all an easy stroll from the cabin. The cabin is set back from the golf course, with a big grassy expanse between, great for children. It is close to one of the tennis courts, with a gas BBQ across the lawn, and is a short level walk to the Club house where you can book for golf.
About Kangaroo Valley …
The historic picturesque village of Kangaroo Valley is hidden away two hours’ drive south of Sydney. The valley is mainly farmland and bushland with pockets of rainforest, surrounded by dramatic cliffs. It is very beautiful all year round, particularly at sunset when the cliffs glow in the setting sun. The valley gets its name from the mobs of Kangaroos that live there. They love the lush grass on our golf course and you can see families of kangaroos feasting on the greens in the early morning and as night falls. There are also lots of wombats trundling around on their stubby legs. They are not at all shy and often wander past the cabin at dusk. One in particular likes to live under it sometimes!
The village of Kangaroo Valley offers cafes, restaurants, an historic pub with good food and a great beer garden, and homeware and gift shops. There is a large local pool for hot summer days, a woodworkers shop and a Pioneer museum. The Kangaroo River runs through the valley and is a perfect spot for picnics, swimming and kayaking. The ‘world’s best pies’ are sold a short drive up the Sydney road – try them, they really are good!
Kangaroo Valley is a short drive from both the Southern Highlands and the South Coast. The delightful town of Berry is a 30 minute drive away over a spectacular mountain pass, and just beyond is Seven Mile Beach. Cambewarra mountain lookout, about a 20 minute drive along the Nowra Rd, has a café and amazing views across to Berry, the Shoalhaven River and the Nowra plains. In the other direction the lovely Southern highlands towns of Bowral, Robertson and Berrima have restaurants, country pubs, gardens and shopping and are all easy driving distances away. On the way Fitzroy Falls has dramatic waterfalls and bushwalks.
