The location is superb.

The house is relaxing and ideal for re-connecting with family.

Evening board games, lazy days of talking and relaxing on the deck. Cool evenings had us all curled up on the comfy couch with our books.

The only complaint is the web site requires upgrading. There is no hot tub. But we honestly didn't miss it.

Katoomba Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! We spent a delightful weekend at Kookaburra Retreat. The retreat is absolutely perfect, you are welcomed with breathtaking views as soon as you enter and to top it off a complimentary bottle of Moet. The location is perfect to explore the Blue Mountains and surrounds. The lounge was cosy with a lovely fire-place. The modern kitchen had all the appliances we required. The coffee machine was nice to have and thanks for the different variety of coffee pods provided. Kookaburra Retreat is beautifully designed and exceptionally clean. There is just too many positives to mention, you just have to STAY here. Staying at Kookaburra Retreat was perfection and exceeded all expectations. Rob, the host was very friendly and made the process so easy. Can not wait to return. ?

The house, the garden, the view, the region; were all beyond compare. This was by far the best family holiday we have ever had.

My hubby and I spent four nights at Kookaburra Retreat and what a wonderful experience it was. Our previous visit to this property was with a group of friends which we also thoroughly enjoyed. Stunning views are the first thing you notice on arrival. The property is beautifully furnished with top of the range linen and fluffy towels. There are beautiful pieces of furniture throughout the property which give it a homely feel and you can tell that a lot of thought went into decorating. We even braved the cold and sat on the back deck drinking our complimentary Moët..although it wasn't too uncomfortable as there are a lot of blankets we could use that are provided for this purpose. Definitely a six star property
