Nestled within the rolling countryside a short drive from Berry, The Haven is ideally located to enjoy the regions many pleasures. Wineries, beaches and the historic town of Berry are all within easy reach.
The modern houses - there are three on the site - are located amongst the trees and offer sweeping views of the local countryside; they are well appointed and comfortable.
We stayed at the Berry Hideaway last year and could not believe it was available again this year. It's been in the Good Weekend 50 weekend locations and is reasonably priced so I have no idea why that is the case.
The hideaway is on the other side of the highway from the main Berri town so you're away from the town which in my opinion gives you a greater sense of being on holidays. The hideaway consists of three houses on a very large plot. You cant see the other houses from your house.
Wendy and Kim are such warm hosts. They provide breakfast as part of the deal and are generous with their time showing off the alpacas and other animals to our kids.
The houses are basically new, the air conditioning is fantastic even in a heat wave and there is plenty of room for a family of 4 to eat, sleep and interact in separate spaces.
Berry is a great launching spot for Gerroa, Gerringong, Nowra, Kiama... just about any place inland or beach on that part of the south coast. We went to Jamberoo for a day and it was only about 30 mins drive.
If you do go do me a favour and keep it to yourself.
Booked for a week of books, walks and dining in/out and this did not disappoint. The cabin(s) are ideally situated just outside of Berry for the village amenities and dining options but most of the time we were happy to be hanging out on the property and not doing much at all. The Haven is fully equipped, breakfast provided and superb hosting by Kym and Wendy. Bonus thrown of fresh farm eggs and the alpacas. Would highly recommend. Just off the A1 Princes Highway - turning around if travelling north-south from a turning circle at Croziers Road is easy. Easy access to 7 mile beach but rare to have the seclusion so close to all conveniences.
Just a 5 minute drive into Berry, beautiful property, cottages set in amongst the gum trees. We really enjoyed our stay at The Haven at Berry.
I couldn't fault anything and I'm pretty fussy.
The cottages are tastefully decorated, with a lot of natural light.The veranda out the back was perfect for sipping on a glass of wine or beer whilst relaxing and enjoying the peaceful surrounds.
Kym (host) was very friendly and we were supplied with a great country breakfast each morning.
I loved Barry (the dog) and Cusco,Machu & Picchu the Alpacas.
Definitely would love to stay again.
Very well presented and appointed property. Serene location a short five minute drive to the city centre. Fresh eggs from local chooks a plus. Kym (property manager) very friendly and helpful.
