Ohana; a place for family, & family of friends

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

Ohana means family - a place for family and family of friends - to relax, connect and energise. Ohana is nestled in nature, among the trees in Barrengarry, ~10 mins drive to Kangaroo Valley. We have recently purchased this beautiful place that we aleady love dearly, and we want like minded people to share and experience its beauty and all it has to offer.

This is the place to immerse and connect with nature, yourself and those you are with - Inspired off a ski lodge in Aspen, Ohana is positioned to breathe in and appreciate the escarpment that surrounds Kangaroo Valley, and the mix of native and exotic plants on the property. In spring and summer Ohana is surrounded by kangaroo paw in many colours - feel free to pick a bunch to enjoy during and post your stay.

Wake up to the song of birds, now is the time to slow down and enjoy breakfast on the sun drenched deck, a picnic in the gardens on the 5 acre property followed by an indulgent nap. As the sun sets share stories and set new intentions by the fire pit, before dining and relaxing by the wood fire of an evening.

Indoors Ohana features a Cheminee Philippe fireplace as the center piece of the living room, tallow wood floors, a bespoke leather king bed in the master bedroom, queen beds in the other two bedrooms, rain-showers with underfloor heating in both bathrooms, air conditioning and heating. To nurture hearts and minds you have a sonos sounds system whereby you can enjoy your music from your iphone/mobile, and a fully functional kitchen with miele appliances and stainless steel bench tops, with a choice of indoor and outdoor dining areas.

Once you see, feel and experience Ohana, you will want to stay... just that one night longer...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh my goodness, we have fallen in love with your house. We cant thank you enough for the opportunity to stay, and love the homeliness feel. My family do home exchanges and have stayed in some amazing places in Stockholm and Finland and its so much nicer staying in a place where the personality of the family is obvious. Some of the stayz are so sterile, you have made this perfect. We will be back!

Peaceful secluded location. Beautiful spacious fully equipped house

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Ohana. The house is stunning and luxurious with everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Everything went smoothly. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend the property.

The same 5 star impression we felt the first time.

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second time at Ohana in the last six months. Our family loved it so much the first time that my husband surprised me for a getaway for my 50th Birthday for a few days to celebrate. As from our previous experience the property was 5 Star. Exceptionally clean, classy, and beautiful environment to spend time celebrating such a special occasion. We were able to go into Kangaroo Valley each day and have coffee and browse through the different shops. We also went to Huskisson and spent some time walking along the beach. 'Our nine year old son Jaimen said as we were leaving, I am going to miss Ohana Mum I feel so relaxed here'. We will coming back whenever we can. Thanks again Lisa and Damien... we loved it,

If you are looking for the best, look no further.

  • 5 of 5

Ohana exceeded all of our expectations. The outlook was amazing, the gardens were just beautiful. The house was something else, absolutely pristine, stunning log fire and tastefully decorated. You can tell Ohana has been a labour of love for Lisa and Damian, the home is immaculate. They have truly thought of everything from the North Face jackets hanging in the closet, to the fully stocked pantry! Can not wait to return, many thanks to you both for allowing us the use of your beautiful home.

Beautiful house in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Ohana is a spacious and stylish, well maintained (and clean!) house nestled in beautiful Kangaroo Valley location. Bedrooms are comfortable and have lots of storage space. Could do with a full length mirror but that's a minor niggle. The bathrooms likewise are modern and roomy, loved the toiletries too! Lounge, dining and kitchen area is huge, open plan, with all you need for entertaining a houseful, or a cosy weekend on the sofa (which was so comfy!) There is also a fantastic decked terrace with amazing views, and a steep but well maintained garden to stroll around. You're not far from places like Jervis bay, Hyams beach, the Shoalhaven valley (great wine tasting trail) and of course cute Kangaroo Valley town itself. Only watch out would be on what vehicle you bring as the track up to the house is a bit rough, we certainly were pleased to have 4wd when it rained buckets! Great customer service from the owners, including local recommendations a well as all of above made it a fantastic weekend away!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We appreciated your feedback at the time of your stay in March, and there are now two full length mirrors for viewing pleasure in each of the bedrooms :) We are also engaged with our neighbors to getting the road to the house repaired. Look forward to having you visit again, next time you are in Australia!

Stunningly beautfiul and completely private

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderful Ohana property. This time in the cooler weather, which meant indoor fires and comfort cooking! We often share destination homes with groups of friends and find Ohana to be everything we look for and more... Private, luxurious, great kitchen, fantastic group and private spaces, all nestled perfectly in the gorgeous gardens of the property and the native bushland beyond. We'll be back again soon !!

Ohana is a magical and serene escape

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Ohana over Easter and it was the most perfect escape from city life. Nestled in the foothills of the Kangaroo Valley, the property has been lovingly landscaped and makes for a beautiful environment to while away the days, picnic on the grass and is perfect for an Easter egg hunt! The house has been meticulously appointed and has all the creature comforts of a home away from home. Organising our stay with Lisa was a breeze and she was always very accommodating and quick to answer any question. We will definitely be back again!
