About the property

"Welcome to this Happy Place!"

"Cooinda" is Aboriginal for "Happy Place"

"Kia-Ora" Lane, where it is located, is Maori for "Welcome"

It is indeed a beautiful, relaxing, happy place where we welcome families or groups wanting to escape the pace of the city.

The house is perfectly positioned atop a knoll with panoramic views of gently undulating countryside. It enjoys a northerly aspect basking in sunlight and views from all the living areas. The house itself is fully fenced with a flat grassy area for children to play, including cubby house and play frame.

There are 4 resident curious alpacas that look forward to greeting you and there are cattle in some of the outer paddocks. Please understand that this is a working farm and for safety reasons, you cannot access the surrounding paddocks.

However, you can see the livestock from the comfort of the well-maintained gardens and grassed area on which the house is located.

The accommodation has been set up with larger groups and your comfort in mind. The kitchen is newly renovated and fully equipped including dishwasher. There is an outdoor gas BBQ located on the back porch. There are four living areas in all - formal and casual living and dining areas. There is a huge open fireplace at one end of the house and a large wood heater at the other - all firewood supplied - bring the marshmallows!!

The bathrooms are both newly renovated and the bedrooms all have separate heaters so come to the country for that fresh crisp air, knowing you have a cosy base from which to explore the Southern Highlands.

Guest Reviews:

“We booked through Holiday Rental Specialists in June for a weekend away with friends and family. The team was lovely, responsive, helpful and professional. The quality of the places they advertise are great, and also, when we experienced some minor issues with the accommodation, the team were understanding and responsive – and ultimately, went above and beyond to ensure the issues were addressed promptly and comprehensively. We left the property with great memories of the weekend, and would definitely recommend Holiday Rental Specialists.”

“Beautiful scenery, super quiet and relaxing place. We made life lasting memories here. The location is secluded but that is what we wanted and more importantly it’s pretty close to Sydney.”

Yousef, July 2017

“This is an ideal place to get away from the city’s chaos and catch up with some friends. The house is fantastic! It pretty much has everything we need and it’s very clean. It definitely exceeds my expectations and we all have decided to come back again. The view is nice, and not far from Mittagong or the look out. We had a great time here! Thank you so much for such great accommodation!”

Liz, July 2017

“Clean, comfortable and pretty. Staying in this house was the breathe of fresh air we were seeking for a much needed break. The views from the lounge area are spectacular and receiving visits from the cows and dogs make it feel like you’re really in the country.”

Karen, June 2017

“It has been a wonderful weekend staying here with family.”

Alison, December 2016

“Everything in very good order – We had an excellent holiday and look forward to our future stays with you.”

Nice weekend away!

  • 4 of 5

Although this property is quite dated, it has nice new bathrooms. The cleanliness was disappointing, grill full of fat, dead insects under furniture & on window sills.

The grounds were beautiful, hardly saw the kids as they were out exploring all the time.

We had to buy our own wine glasses as there was only one!!!! Kitchen was in need of an update in cutlery, utensils & pans. We had to use a masher with a missing handle, v v disappointing considering we paid nearly $2000 for the weekend.

Owner's Response: Hi Cheryl, Thank you for taking the time to review Cooinda. Unfortunately, the Stayz system didn't alert us to your review, so apologies for our delayed response. We are disappointed to hear of the cleaning and maintenance issues, though we can assure you all have been resolved since your stay. The owners have taken great care in updating the property and providing all new equipment for the kitchen. You won't be left needing anything when you return next. We agree, the grounds are beautiful, with gorgeous rural views and plenty of room for the kids to run around. Cooinda is the perfect property for a family holiday. Holiday Rental Specialists are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay despite some minor set backs and we hope to welcome you back in future to enjoy the improvements the owners have made since your last holiday at Cooinda.

We had a fabulous time! The house is very accommodating! We spent a lot of the time outdoors from morming to sunset. Fantastic outdoor grass area with wonderful views. Outdoor seating/setting could be upgraded/improved. We will be back for sure.
