Lo spazio
Desiderata was named one of the most Romantic Getaways in Australia by Qantas Travel.

One of Kangaroo Valley's most prestigious properties. Desiderata is now available for guests to come share in the wonderful experience that is Kangaroo Valley while staying in luxury....

Desiderata is Latin for "desired things" and is a stunning home set on 10 acres and has breathtaking 360 degree views of the valley with mountainous landscapes surrounded by farmland.

Go for a walk up Walkers Lane; relax in the hammock or cocoons on the large sun drenched veranda; sit in front of the volcanic rock chimney fireplace with a glass of wine; entertain in the indoor/outdoor living room; cook up a storm in the gourmet kitchen; read a book in the mezzanine library or just watch a movie in the entertainment room....there are plenty of options.

The house has a large open plan feel with private areas available. The main house has 3 bedrooms; one king bedroom with amazing views and 2 queen bedrooms with views. It sleeps 6 adults plus infants (in 2 cots) and small children with mattresses on the floor (there is an extra cost for this). The prices quoted on Airbnb are for 6 guests only. We do not charge for infants 2 years and under.

We have a fourth bedroom with a queen size bed with views and we can open this up for 2 additional adults at an extra cost of $150 per night (note- during holiday seasons & long weekends the nightly rate is higher) with a minimum of 2 nights. Just ask for room to be included in quote.

The main King bedroom has bi-fold doors that open up on its' own private balcony with outstanding views...please see photo's. It also has its own en-suite bathroom.

Every room has air conditioning, fans and electric blankets and the bedrooms have their own TV with the 3 queen bedrooms having their own DVD player, if sanctuary is needed or agreeing on which movie to watch is difficult.

The tv room is sound proof and set for comfort and enjoyment with a very large flat screen TV and blue ray DVD player. We have over 450 DVD's to choose from.

Living areas also feature bi-fold doors which completely open to the outdoors, both at the entertainment areas and back of house opening it up to the amazing views outside.

We have a mezzanine floor which is used as a study and library or sanctuary for meditation. We have quite a library of books available to suite different tastes for you to enjoy.

The house is primarily aimed at couples/families wishing to have a relaxing break. The house has a beautiful warm feel and has been designed to cater for every need or desire.

The gourmet kitchen is a chefs delight including sunbeam cafe series espresso machine and we provide the Italian ground coffee beans for your enjoyment.

We also provide free broadband internet wireless and cable also free basic food essentials - olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper

Sue & Anthony Whipps,

What an amazing start to our holiday! From the perfect house with an AMAZING view, to the peaceful country (URL HIDDEN) has been the most relaxing weekend we can remember. Watching the kangaroos in the morning from the front verandah, while a fox caught breakfast in the front yard...just perfect! JUST MAGICAL!!!!
Kirstie, Mike, Danielle & Jason,

Staying here @ Desiderata & in Kangaroo Valley has been the perfect start to our honeymoon & life together as husband & wife. The ability to unwind, be with nature & get back to the simple things is what your house has offered us - much needed after planning a wedding! Thank you
Alyce & Myles Young,

Dear Vittoria & Norris
Every year we celebrate Easter at a different locale. This year was particularly special - we thank you!
'Desiderata' is enchanting, with its unique energy and warmth - qualities which are an extension of the owners.
Loved everything - a special thank you to Carol for her kindness and help when we needed it and friendly nature.
We will return again & refer Desiderata only to those deserving & worthy.
Kind regards
Phillipa, Kevin and Maureen,

All we can say is WOW! What an amazing home you have in the most exquisite location. Our weekend away was perfect with all creative comforts at hand.
Could not think of a better location and place to stay for our wedding anniversary.
Thank you
Marc & Melissa

Hi Vittoria
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was our (dream) home away from home, set in breathtaking surroundings. I can't describe how impressed we were with the furnishings, amenities and ambiance in your home. You have put so much love and thought into every possible detail.
Our daughter (3 yo) isn't happy about being home tonight. She loved your home so much she did not want to leave. It could have been the 'new kitchen' or 'egg chairs' or 'fluffy blanket' she described, but I think it was the warmth, character and positive energy you have imparted.
We are very lucky to have spent a weekend at Desiderata.
Thank you again
Sofia & family

Dear Vittoria
We would like to say that Desiderata made each one of us feel home. We found this beautiful house full of love and that's how we want to leave - also leaving our love in the house. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Everything was perfect.
A very happy New Year filled with health, peace and prosperity.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home. We had a wonderful time with our grown up children who all lead such busy lives in Sydney. Just fabulous to wake up to amazing scenery and be in gorgeous surroundings. You home is just stunning. Thank you again!
Jane & Chris Hogart + family
P.S. Carol was a great help!

Dear Vittoria
What an amazing house you have. We have all enjoyed the serenity of your beautiful home in amongst the hills of Kangaroo Valley. We have loved every moment of our holiday and we are already planning a trip back to your home! I've already begun the recommendations!!!,
Thank you, Elisa and Lindsey

Thank you Vittoria for the privilege of staying in your beautiful home. It exceeded all of our expectations and just what we needed - some peace and tranquility and a break from our city lives. We will definitely be back, if you'd have us!

Dear Vittoria,
We have had an absolutely lovely weekend in your beautiful house with our family. We celebrated my husband's 60th birthday and enjoyed every minute especially waking up to those amazing views of the sunrise. Your house is so warm and inviting with its beautiful décor and cosy fireplace we were relaxed the moment we walked through the front door. We will hold these memories in our hearts. Thank you for making this wonderful weekend possible. All the best wishes to you.
Chris and Geoff Smee

We are a semi-retired couple, after many years living and working in Sydney, London, New York, Auckland, Johannesburg and Durban, decided to move to the mid-north coast of Australia - paradise! We both love travelling and experiencing different food and cultures. So when we are not helping people with their holidays we are on holidays or planning our next escape! My husband's passion is art, being creative & fishing - particularly sport & fly fishing and I enjoy reading self development books, history - ancient & modern, a good drop of wine, and donating my time to a worthy cause. We own a few holiday houses - Desiderata Kangaroo Valley (for families, friends and couples looking for a relaxing luxury country stay); Lake View @ Elizabeth Beach (for families or couples up to 6 guests plus an infant); Lake Escape (for couples plus an infant) and La Vista Forster on Wallis Lake (for either couples or families). I am also the co-host of TAMBAC on Boomerang Beach. A beautiful townhouse with stunning water views. I also donate my time to promoting the Pacific Palms area through the Pacific Palms Tourist accommodation & tourism business & The Great Lakes Tourism Association as Secretary & Treasury.
