We’re thrilled to be included in Urban List’s ‘9 Beautiful Beach Houses To Book This Summer’. Here’s what they had to say…


“From the same team behind Barranca farm stay in Kangaroo Valley, this beach house on the South Coast is a magical spot to base yourself for a summer getaway. Perfect for big groups and families, there are five bedrooms divided into two self-contained areas. The property sits on 20 acres of beautiful bushland—and you’ll be treated to a vista of peaceful towering gums, visiting birdlife, and the occasional wallaby or two. The home has been kitted out with MCM House furniture, Beefeater BBQ, and an outdoor shower to rinse off after a day at the beach. Speaking of, you’re a quick drive or bike ride away from the famous white sands of Jervis Bay.”

We are so thrilled to be featured as New South Wales’ No. #1 ‘Hot 50 Places to Stay’ in this week’s The Weekend Australian Magazine. It’s truly humbling and means so much to everyone on the barranca team. If you haven’t seen it, here’s what revered travel writer Christine Middap wrote about her stay …

“The delightful village of Kangaroo Valley is just down the way, the 80m-high Fitzroy Fitzroy Falls are up the nearby mountain, but you might struggle to venture far from your villa in its own natural paradise.

On a 400ha farm in a hidden valley two hours from Sydney, the four luxe villas are arrayed before a dramatic sandstone escarpment. The two- and four-bed options are impeccably styled with full kitchens, large dining and lounge areas, and terraces that lure you out for a sunset tipple.

In winter, light the log fire and snuggle up; in summer, walk through the rainforest to your own private stretch of river for a dip. You’ll love visiting the farm animals, including the impressive Shire horses and some wonderfully contented pigs. Two-bedroom from $1060 for two nights.”
