The space

This leafy hideaway in the middle of vibrant Balmain is a stones throw from all the many delights that Balmain has to offer. A short and picturesque ferry ride to Darling Harbour and the Sydney CBD. Kookaburra Cottage is a great place to relax or get out and explore.

This is a quiet space for enjoyment not a party place. Pets are very welcome as we have a fully enclosed backyard .
Please bring pets own bedding & No dogs on the bed.........(bad dog)
Also , Pets should not be left for long periods alone. the yard is used by our family so being out all day and night and leaving barking dogs behind is not an option. Friendly dogs are extremely welcome.

Due to the set up & privacy of the cottage we have had many requests for long term commitments ie: two days a week for 12 months , however the option does not really suite . Sorry

Third time staying here - it's a perfect size & location and the garden area works so well for the dog. A couple of issues with the electrics which were quickly sorted.

This is the perfect self contained cottage to stay at, in a terrific location in Balmain. This was my husbands and my first visit to Balmain and we were so impressed. Kookaburra is private, but positioned just off Darling Street, on the Elliott Street side of Balmain. Its within walking distance to everything! We caught the ferry over to Darling Harbour, then actually walked back to the cottage! Our host Red and he's family were so accommodating and the whole feeling of serenity that Balmain exudes is just perfect. Highly recommend Kookaburra Cottage!!!

Red is a wonderful host and made my uncle and aunt from interstate feel so welcome. He went out of his way to help them and they couldn't have raved more about the experience. I'd recommend it to anyone as a cozy central spot close to the wonderful restaurants and shops in Balmain/Rozelle and an easy travel in to the city. Thanks again Red

Thank you Red for being flexible for the check in time. The cottage was in a wonderful location and walkable to Coffee Contessa, Bertoni & Balmain ferry. It is perfect for someone who would like to explore Balmain neighbourhood. Although I only met Red briefly on the last day when checking out, it was lovely for me to have chosen the cottage.
