A stilt house which elevates you to the tree tops, Khan Cottage enjoys a spectacular outlook. Despite our faraway feel, the vibrant town of Berry is only a five-minute drive away and we are close to beautiful South Coast beaches. We have 135 acres of rolling rainforest, pasture and creeks, plus a wrap-around deck with views which go on forever. The accommodation includes two bedrooms: one queen-size room with its own deck and one double bedroom, both supplied with quality linen and towels. The house is lovingly furnished and equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, wood-burning heater, gas heater, iPod docking station and DVD player. There is a small library of DVDs at the house.
Berry is less than a two-hour drive from Sydney, south along the new M1 Princes Motorway. Khan Cottage is located along scenic Bundewallah Road.. Seven Mile Beach National Park is its closest beach (great for fishing) and then Gerroa, just to the north. Gerroa offers a café, a children’s playground and a quiet child-friendly estuary as well as a surfing beach. Stay at Khan Cottage and you could learn to surf at Gerringong or drive south to spend a day on the stunning beaches of Jervis Bay National Park. Kangaroo Valley, thirty minutes away via a scenic tourist drive, is another day trip. From here you could hire a kayak and venture down the Kangaroo River or explore the outdoor Kangaroo Valley Pioneer museum and its bush walks. There are nearby wineries and their restaurants, including The Silos Restaurant and Jasper Valley winery and café. Berry has an outdoor swimming pool (Berry Village Pool) which is open from November to April.
Berry itself is a thriving village, full of restaurants and fine cafes. It offers a supermarket, bakeries, a butchers and speciality food stores. Return to Khan Cottage and you enjoy spectacular Escarpment views, privacy and a cacophony of birdsong. There is a walking trail running alongside our property which leads up the Escarpment to old-growth rainforest and a waterfall. We, the owners, do not live on the property which means that the house, its environs, the mown path to the creek and the beautiful views are all yours to enjoy, making Khan Cottage a very private and peaceful retreat for two to four people. Our housekeeper lives in Berry and is just a phone call away should you need her..
