"Welcome to this Happy Place!"
"Cooinda" is Aboriginal for "Happy Place"
"Kia-Ora" Lane, where it is located, is Maori for "Welcome."
It is indeed a beautiful, relaxing, happy place, where we welcome families or groups wanting to escape the busy city life.
Cooinda is perfectly positioned atop a knoll with panoramic views of gently undulating countryside. It enjoys a northerly aspect basking in sunlight and views from all the living areas. The house itself is fully fenced with a flat grassy area for children to play, including a cubby house and play frame.
Come and enjoy a beautiful sunset with friends and family, sitting on the gorgeous, newly built deck with views overlooking the vast countryside. There is outdoor heating for cooler months and this is a wonderful platform for stargazing. Create a feast with the new outdoor kitchen/BBQ. You may even catch a glimpse of a kangaroo drinking from the dam!
The accommodation has been set up with larger groups and your comfort in mind. The kitchen is newly renovated and fully equipped, including a dishwasher.
There are four casual and formal living and dining areas. There is a huge open fireplace at one end of the house and a large wood heater at the other - all firewood supplied. All you need to bring are the marshmallows or a lovely bottle of red!
The bathrooms are both newly renovated. One has a large bath, perfect for relaxing and soaking away your worries.
The bedrooms all have separate heaters, so come to the country for that fresh, crisp air, knowing you have a cosy base from which to explore.

Great location, beautiful house! Our group of friends loved it there. Only downside was communication between the rental agency was a bit difficult at times, and unfortunately my pillow was left behind but unable to be found by the cleaners. The microwave is also broken and in need of being replaced.
The house was fantastic. Comfortable beds, beautiful outdoor spaces with great views, and a fabulous yard. The house was very clean. We had a great stay.
Very nice place to be and great house
We had a group of 12 adults and this property provided the perfect space and a feeling of being in the country despite only 1.5 hours from Sydney. The hot water could be more generous for a large group - but we worked around it. Otherwise a really, really great spot and I would book again.
house was very clean. We had a family weekend away here for my parents 60th and it was great. Beautiful views and plenty of space for the kids to play!
Lovely house in a great spot. Beautiful views over the valley, surrounded by green paddocks, but only a 15 minute drive to Bowral. Some of the furnishings are a little dated but the house is neat and tidy and has several living spaces which is great for a big group, a lovely open fireplace and a great deck.
This house is beautiful with a great view in a good spot. However, during our stay the toilets were blocked, we didn’t have cold water for the majority of our stay which caused problems with 14 people.
Spent a lovely wet weekend at Cooinda catching up with good friends and celebrating a big birthday. Plenty of room for everyone, and the big kitchen table was a winner when it came to seating for our group of 14 at high tea! Lovely views from the lounge as the view revealed itself a couple of times at least. We made great use of the fireplaces, and the kids enjoyed taking over the piano room for their sleepover space. Lovely garden, outdoor deck and just a good vibe generally.
Our extended family of 8 adults, 1 toddler and 2 babies thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cooinda. The house was spacious, with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was quite well equipped. The two fireplaces and numerous oil and panel heaters kept the place toasty warm through our winter stay. The garden was beautiful and the cubby house a treat for the kids to play in. The covered outdoor area and barbecue were brilliant, though we didn't get to use it much as it rained for 3 days of our stay. It's a testament to the loveliness of the place that even with the rain, we weren't concerned about being cooped inside with all the kids! Definitely looking forward to staying here again in the future.
“Cooinda was perfect for what we were after over our end of season weekend away. It is a little out of town but what a spot! Great outlook and plenty of room to walk around the property. We couldn’t have asked for more.”
