My boyfriend took me here for a surprise 2 nights away last week. He earned big brownie points with this place! :) A big thank-you to the owners John and Olga, your cabins are perfect. Only small but with everything you need. Completely private, gorgeous views (words don't describe) from every place in the cabin, very roomy spa, robes, games,... More

This is our fifth stay at Kangaroo Ridge as we just love coming back to the view and the gorgeous cabin that allows you to feel like you've really escaped the hustle & bustle as the location is so tucked away from the everyday. We love the atmosphere along with the lovely provisions on arrival and for brekky. We have... More

We stayed at Kangaroo Ridge for two nights and had the most relaxing and wonderful stay. The views were absolutely stunning and the atmosphere of the cabin was so peaceful and cozy. It was 100% seclusion as we did not see anyone else on the property during our stay. We enjoyed watching the wildlife from our balcony. We have not... More

We stayed at kangaroo ridge retreat for 2 nights and it was absolutely gorgeous. Very minimalist but still very cosy and warm. It had a really lovely feel about it. The views were beautiful from the cabin and the log fire and spa were a great way to spend an evening. Overall it was exactly what we wanted for our... More

We just got back from a night at one of these fantastic cabins and couldn't have been happier with the experience. It was extremely comfortable and the owners have been very thoughtful in the design and the care they take to make the whole experience so enjoyable. The spa overlooking the valley is a wonderful way to spend an evening!... More

The first thing that struck us was the outstanding view of the valley. We picked up some beautiful food in Healesville, which by the way has no shortage of amazing local produce. If you are planning to cook on the little bbq grill, don't forget to pick something up on the way, as you won't want to leave the retreat... More

We had a wonderful stay at Kangaroo Retreat. The property was impeccably clean and well set up, including the breakfast that was provided. We had incredible weather and loved the breathtaking views from the balcony while also enjoying all the Yarra Valley has to offer. It was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks

It had been years since we had been to Kangaroo ridge and driving up the road to the top of the hill felt like nothing had changed. Olga and John were friendly and wonderful and the setting was just a beautiful and peaceful as we remembered. We stayed three nights but wished it could have been a week as the... More

We stayed over a hot summer weekend. Breakfast provisions were thoughtful and generous. Cheese platter was delightfully garnished with antipasto. The BBQ hamper which cost $50 has got wholesome steaks and sausages, mushrooms and a delicious salad with Olga's homemade (I believe so cos it's very yummy) dressing!! There's no need to dine out at all, truly self-contained. The verandah... More
