Eagles Rest - A Peaceful Getaway

Bedrooms 6
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Eagles Rest is the perfect escape for a weekend. Just 90 minutes south of Sydney is the beautiful township of Berry. known for its arts, craft and food - Berry is nestled just inland from the magnificent Seven Mile Beach and the mountains to the west. It is upon Woodhill Mountain - some 350m above sea level - that you will find Eagles Rest.

Less than 10 minutes up the mountain road and you might as well be a million miles away from everything. As you enter the property through the gates the house is still a small journey yet (well not that far, a few hundred metres), allowing for the last few stresses of modern living to fall away.

The first glimpse of Eagles Rest impresses you with size. It is a large home that is almost 75m from end to end. Five bedrooms (three with en suites) all with fantastic Queen (one King) beds disappear into a house that is meant for people to gather, celebrate, rest and relax. Adjoining the home is the garage and above it is the loft - a large open space accommodating up to another 10 with 4 queen and 2 single beds (with dedicated bathroom and shower)

There are two indoor eating areas - one that seats 8 in formality, the other that seats an incredible 14 with ease (and that's before the 8 seater outside on the deck). Accompanying the range of eating areas are two lounge/TV rooms (both with Foxtel - Satellite service).

The smaller lounge room adjoins the large indoor fireplace and can happily seat 2 in the love chair through to 8 if company is preferred. This area is also ideal for the kids - with DVD player & Sony Play Station on call to amuse.

The larger lounge is in The Great Room - at the eastern most part of Eagles Rest. This is where everyone can gather in their own space - with easily enough space for 20 people. The room is surrounded by glass (folding doors that open fully on a warm day), with views through 180 degrees from Gerrora to Nowra - and all the magnificence in between. Equipped with full kitchen, walk in pantry big enough to house everything you could possibly want, Bose entertainment system and super size flat screen TV - its the place to be from dawn (which erupts through the windows to dazzle every morning) to the stillness on a dark winters night.

A deck runs run the entire house, and connects you to the double garage at the western end of the property. The ground level has an 2m pool table to pass a few hours, and upstairs is the loft.

The loft and great room are reverse cycle air conditioned, and all bedrooms have space heaters. On top of that the formal lounge area and the outside deck have wood fires

The garage has parking for up to 2 cars (6 more outside on ground), and as you leave that area and head into the trees further west there is a small deck area ideal for yoga, meditation of just a moment of tranquility.

What to bring

At Eagles Rest all you need to bring is -

- your happy friends and family;

- what you plan to eat

- your drinks;

- a range of clothing (temperature varies a bit on the mountain, even in summer); and

- your personal toiletries

We provide all the linen and towels - and of course all the things you need to make Eagles Rest your home for a few days

The home should be left neat and tidy (as per when you moved in), any extra cleaning required to return the home to original condition will be deducted from the bond

What a fantastic 3 days at Eagles Rest

  • 5 of 5

We just had my husbands 40th on the weekend, from the moment our friends and family walked in we were all blown away! Nothing has been forgotten in this incredible home. We even got a visit from an wombat!

Michael was fantastic with communication from the start, and nothing was a drama.

We have made memories that will last a life time.

Can't wait to stay again!

Owner's Response: Hi Alana Thanks so much for staying and taking the time to write a review. We are delighted that you guys had a blast at Eagles Rest - its such a great place to make memories - especially with family and friends. In the absence of rainfall the wombats tend to develop a higher level of bravery - would have made a nice birthday surprise no doubt! Thanks again, we look forward to your next visit at our home in the hills

This property is exceptional. There were 12 of us for a 3 day girls getaway and it was absolutely fantastic. The whole house is well thought out for large groups with plenty of space for everyone. It is so well appointed and so comfortable. Michael was so helpful and the information he gave us on the property was great. Location is wonderful and view amazing you feel very special being at this place. It is a short drive to Berry and easily visited surrounding areas such as Kangaroo Valley. Couldn't have been better - we are planning on going again!

Owner's Response: Hi Mandy and thank you so much for staying at our home. We are delighted that you and your group had such a good time - its so good to know that our home made your weekend a great one. Although you do need a car and driver, the isolation of the home makes it special - and as you say its proximity to so many things leaves a bunch of options (or you can just make it home and enjoy all that Eagles Rest has to offer). We look forward to you coming back - and thanks for taking the time to write a review!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

After reading so many wonderful reviews, we booked Eagles Rest to celebrate a 40th birthday and it didn’t disappoint! Every aspect of our stay from the booking, communication with the owner, our arrival and our entire stay was perfect. The views are breathtaking, the house is beautifully equipped, the beds are warm and comfortable and the sense of space is unbelievable. It is clear that a lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into making this property fantastic, which is reflected in so many positive reviews. Thank you, Michael, for sharing Eagles Rest with us and making our celebration an unforgettable one. I hope we get the chance to visit again one day!

Owner's Response: Thanks Vicki for staying and for taking the time to write a review. So glad that Eagles Rest played a small role in the big birthday - it's a great place to gather and celebrate with family for sure. Also great to hear that you guys stayed warm - it's been cool down the coast these last few weeks so I am glad that the fireplaces helped keep the cool at bay. Happy birthday once again - and we'd love to to have you back anytime!

Fantastic for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a fantastic stay. We had a beautiful girls retreat Christmas in June - the house has everything you need for a great weekend away. Amazing views too. We loved the outdoor fire and deck, sound system and the tranquility. Would def recommend for large groups - 5 bedrooms in main part of house, and another five beds in the separate loft above the garage. Great to use local caterers too, Duck Duck Goose and Berry Sourdough both delivered awesome food, and Pamper Me (Nowra) was amazing for massage/facials at the house - great for a girls weekend or family get together. If you are planning a special occasion, Shady Fig in Berry does lovely flowers too. Thanks for a great stay.

Outstanding property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at wonderful Eagles Rest for 3 nights for the occasion of our son's wedding nearby. We were a large gathering (14) of family members from around Australia and Overseas. Eagles Rest was the perfect spot. There are several areas for everyone getting together such as around the outdoor fireplace, or for meals at the large kitchen table and there were also many places, apart from the bedrooms, where one could retreat for peace, to read a book or watch television, if one wanted to. Great music system with separate speakers for indoors and outdoors - useful as we spanned 3 generations. We didn't actually get around to using any of the 4 televisions, or the pool table, or the indoor fireplace and formal dining room! The house is light, bright and spacious with an amazing expansive view over the countryside and the ocean beyond. Comfortable beds, good linen and spotlessly clean. Oh, and Michael was extremely helpful and prompt to reply. We hope to be back soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Bobby I'm so glad that the occasion of your son's wedding went off so well - and really happy that you guys could make Eagles Rest small part of the overall celebration. Not using the televisions but enjoying the log fires tells me you had the best of times in the home - and that's what it's all about. Thank you so much for staying - we'd love to have you back anytime
