About the property

BLUEBIRD ESCAPE A retreat for weekend or weekly getaways in the Southern Highlands, New South Wales. Private, secluded, modern Australian luxury on a private road in Canyonleigh. Only 30 minutes from Moss Vale and Berrima, 40 minutes from Bowral and just under 2 hours from Sydney or Canberra. Three bedrooms, spacious living, chef's kitchen, bush, views, fully equipped.

STUNNING LOCATION Sitting high on the sides of the Wollondilly valley. Over 100 acres of natural bush. Accommodation perched in a clearing, on a small ridge looking over sandstone escarpments, gullies and valleys. Bush views stretching to the horizon. Huge eucalypts protect acacias, banksias and orchids. Kangaroos, wombats, koalas and native birds abound. Get away from it all – complete privacy no neighbours to be seen.

REFINED COMFORT Luxurious, contemporary accommodation over three pavilions. A mix of modern furniture and selected antiques. A large open plan living space with fully equipped kitchen and three double bedrooms. All with uninterrupted bush valley views. Surrounded by decks. Soak up the sun or lie in the shade.

RELAX AND UNWIND Perfect for a romantic sojourn for 2, families and friends looking for peace away from the cityand to catch up over a few good meals around the fire, a base from which to explore the Southern Highlands or a stolen few days by yourself to read books or simply do nothing. Comfortably sleeps up to 6 adults (and, if you really can’t leave them behind, a couple of smaller kids too).

ATMOSPHERIC Cozy atmosphere on those cold winter days in front of the fire with an unlimited supply of wood. Beautifully haunting and still with fog or rain in valley. Classically Australian-bush on those hot summer days with a breeze flowing through the large open doors.

EAT The large open plan living pavilion includes a kitchen, and dining and sitting areas positioned alongside a large wood fireplace. A rock wall, built from stone collected on the property, stretches along one side of the room with floor to ceiling glass on the others. A spectacular space. Spacious, fully equipped kitchen. Eight metres of stainless steel bench space next to a four metre dining table. 90cm oven and gas hobs. Complete array of pans, pots, utensils. Expresso coffee machine and beans.

Spectacular Property

  • 5 of 5

We decided to stay at Bluebird for our annual Christmas in July celebration, we couldn't be any happier with our stay. The entire residence is just spectacular. The views are out of this world. We go away every year and this is by far the best property we have stayed in. The cupboards are well stocked with everything you will need for your stay, just turn up with your food and wine and enjoy.

We will definitely be back.

Magical luxury escape with views that soar!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to Bluebird Escape for over 2 years now - and as often as we can. We celebrate life's milestones here, come here after stressful work periods to rejuvenate and spend quality time with each other, or catch up with friends and family. It is, for us, one of the most beautiful places on earth - one of those magical places that lifts you out of yourself - you literally feel the worry fall away.

The house is luxurious, striking and easy to live in - with soaring double glazed glass walls that make you feel like you're hovering among the trees, and that open up to bring the outside indoors. You can even wheel the long indoor table out for a gorgeous al fresco experience. There's a sandstone fireplace for marshmallow roasting, four big deckchairs overlooking that breathtaking view to read, chat and rest in. The coffee machine grinds its own beans. The beds are fall-into comfy. The double shower has a stunning view of gums and bushland.

Fiona is a magnificent host - literally every accessory I ever need, no matter how unlikely, always seems to be here. It is a house of luxury, of plenty, but with a relaxed charm that means you don't have to be in a state of high alert about the impact of children or dogs on the place.

And the views - the views are transcendent, rolling and changeable throughout the day. We drop over the cliff for bushwalks and cave picnics. We play boule on the plateau, and the many indoor games in supply. At night we go on wombat tours with torches - they are always about - then come back to curl up on the couch for dinner, popcorn and a movie.

This is a rare find, and we're so thrilled that we found it. Our family consider it their second home because of how happy it makes us all. It's an absolute must visit.

Super relaxing break, gorgeous location.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Bluebird Escape. The house is gorgeous and the property as a whole is just stunning. It was absolute bliss to wake up and look out at nothing but tress for miles. It really is the perfect spot to relax and unwind.

The owner, Fiona is a pleasure to deal with & the booking process couldn't have been easier.

We very much look forward to returning.

We loved staying here

  • 5 of 5

So peaceful, perfectly located, great design and decor. We had a great time at Bluebird Escape. We would highly recommend it. So would Maggie (or dog). She loved hunting the lizards in the succulent garden while we played boules on the lawn while listening to our playlist via the outdoor sound system. Wish we could've stayed longer.

Wonderful Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

Bluebird Escape is a really great place to stay. We visited for a week in June and it was a fantastic holiday. The house is beautiful and peacefully nestled in the country. The views are amazing and each day gives you a different scene. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay perfect and it's a short drive to visit places like Bowral and Berrima. We are definitely going back.
