Relax to the Sounds of the Creek and Birdlife in the Rainforest at Jamberoo

Adults-only cottage with water park and free breakfast
Falls Cottage was built by a Jamberoo local in the 1980s and has grown in charm and character with every passing year. Its current owners have lovingly restored it with a country cottage kitchen, hand crafted interior finishes, a comfortable mezzanine bedroom and a deck and barbeque area to maximise guests’ enjoyment of the beautiful rainforest surrounds. The space: The cottage is a private, self-contained hideaway set on two acres beside the creek and separated from the main house by a grassy field, hill and tree cover. The cottage features a highly functional kitchen with a four burner stove, microwave, tea and coffee provisions including a Nespresso machine, as well as a small kitchen table and chairs. The cottage has been restored to reflect the local flora and fauna. Guests will enjoy a daily breakfast basket delivery with fresh eggs from the free range chickens on site, a range of home made preserves, granola, fresh fruit and yoghurt, and a choice of bread. Afternoon arrivals will be welcomed with fresh scones. The mezzanine bedroom with railed galley stairs is a cosy and comfortable sleeping space, while the sitting area beneath is the perfect place to relax and unwind with a book or one of the movies or board games provided. The front deck is the perfect place to enjoy the morning sun and the beautiful rainforest surrounds with the sound of the Minnamurra river and the birdlife, There is an outdoor setting and Weber barbeque at guests' disposal. The cottage has effective heating and cooling options for cool and warm days. Please note the wood burning stove is not up to current safety standards therefore not usable, but the cottage is lovely and warm with an effective electric heater and electric blankets for winter .

5/5 Excellent

Peace and tranquility!
The cottage is very well appointed & our hosts very friendly and helpful. The location of the cottage is incredible with the Minnamurra rainforest on the door step & well within driving distance of some beautiful walks, vistas and waterfalls. The garden a wonderful haven to relax and recharge whilst listening to the Kookuburras and the babbling creek behind the cottage. I wish we could have stayed longer! A place that I have no doubt we will return to again and again!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Falls Cottage
A wonderful quaint cottage next to beautiful temperate rainforest. Well located to explore the Illawarra, sleep next to a babbling creek and live with superb bird song. Absolutely dedicated owners will go out of their way to make your stay great. A walk to Minnamurra falls is a must. Extremely enjoyable stay.
