Having not visited Berry for a good 10 or more years, we were recently delighted to experience a fantastic extended long weekend at The Haven with our family. Kym and Wendy were delightful hosts and have mastered the right balance of making sure we were catered for without being too intrusive. The property is located in a perfect spot just south of the main drag in Berry, about a 10 minute drive to the wineries and about a 15 minute drive to the beaches. We had fabulous weather and loved the fusion of the quaintness of the village (excellent food, coffee, gelato and shopping) against the backdrop of scenic beaches and nearby Kangaroo Valley. Accommodation was faultless.
Booked as a last minute treat to relax and revive after a particularly stressful few weeks at work, we booked into the Haven Villa… and boy did it serve its purpose! The villa is beautifully maintained and the kids loved the upstairs loft with private access to the upper sitting room (sitting room may not be suitable for very young children unsupervised, due to the cable balustrade - if in doubt chat to the owners Wendy & Kym, who are very helpful!). All the rooms are well kitted out with everything thought of from lovely eco-friendly products to snuggly throws on the sofas and very comfy beds. We really enjoyed cosying up in front of the gas pot belly fire on the crisp evenings - would be great to return in warmer weather to enjoy the lovely veranda. The breakfast provisions basket was spectacular, filled with local produce - we couldn’t finish it all !
A very short drive back into Berry village to checkout the cafe’s and boutique shops and plenty to explore on the property. So close to Sydney, but so far - thanks for a wonderful break, we will be back :-)
