My husband has been booking this stunning holiday home for my birthday every year for ~4 years now. The house is as the pictures look, the view is to die for, and the tranquility is priceless.
We did notice a few changes this vitas though. All rooms except master BR were now locked off - not that we used them, but it would have been nice to show family who visited on the day.
The pantry no longer has all those little extras that the previous guests have left behind (herbs, S&P, oil, sauces, various teas, cling wrap, tin foil etc).
The spa bath outside is either requiring a decent clean and service, or its past its use by date. The water was discoloured and had a weird odour despite hubby using the chemicals provided before we hopped in.
The shower in the master ensuite still leaks all over the bathroom floor, has done for years and we have reported it to the holiday rental business.
I guess as with anything so spectacular and highly sought after there comes a time where it is no longer quaint, as it has that touch of commercialism about it. KVH used to be very homely and just like house sitting for a friend, however it feels very Air BnB now - you get what you pay for and nothing more.
This won't stop us renting this house again, however for the price being charged it does definitely need a through cleaning and a little bit of upkeep here and there.
We had a great three night stay at Kangaroo Valley House. We stayed as a group of 8, all family as we were in KV to celebrate my cousins wedding.
The house was lovely, clean, warm and homely. We loved spending time by the fire and admiring the view. I would love to stay here again one day and highly recommend it!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kangaroo Valley House. It lived up to its name and we saw Kangaroo's most days of our stay, one afternoon we counted 15 in the rear of the garden. The house has everything you need in a holiday rental and is spotlessly clean and luxurious. Thank you we enjoyed our stay.
