Mungari - A spectacular mud brick family home hidden in the rainforest near Berry

Family Friendly in Bellawongarah
From $650 to $990 /night

Tucked away at the end of a private driveway you will find Mungari, a unique handcrafted mudbrick property that sits amongst twenty (20) acres of glorious rainforest and established gardens. The interesting home was lovingly built throughout the 1990’s, each brick was made onsite and remarkably the tractor used to excavate and transport the raw materials now resides at the southern tip of the estate.

The estate is named Mungari, Dharawal for Birdsong, after the extensive array of birdlife including Fairywrens, Eastern spinebills and Lyrebirds that can be found foraging amongst the rhododendrons and fern trees. The property boasts four (4) bedrooms and two (2) bathrooms, comfortably sleeping nine (9) guests.

The home offers numerous character filled living areas that are spread over several floors providing guests with ample opportunity to relax and unwind. Catch a movie on one of the two (2) flat screen Samsung HD TV’s or select a book off the well-stocked library wall. The vaulted ceilings and large windows welcome in the light, which, when combined with the eclectic mix of furniture and décor, creates a wonderful feeling of warmth and tranquillity.

The formal lounge hosts a wood burning fireplace and has direct access to the open plan kitchen and dining area which is complete with a ten (10) seat dining table. The fully equipped kitchen is fitted out with an LG fridge / freezer, Westinghouse oven, Miele dishwasher, five (5) burner gas stove top, Panasonic microwave and Delonghi coffee machine. The kitchen also opens onto one of the three (3) outdoor tiered gardens, perfect for relaxing or cooking up a storm on the Matador four (4) burner gas BBQ with side burner.

For guests that are unable to totally disconnect from their work or business commitments, complimentary Wi-Fi and a spacious desk overlooking the forest and lawn is available on the top floor of the property. Also available for guest’s convenience are a Westinghouse washing machine and tumbler dryer, iron and ironing board and a further overflow Westinghouse fridge. For an added twist, the two (2) car garage houses a Ping-Pong table and an assortment of activities and lawn games.

For those wishing to reconnect with nature and experience the tranquillity of the estate, take a walk over the handmade bridge and into the beautiful and secluded rainforest where you may be lucky enough to encounter the local Echidnas, Wombats and Wallabies that also call Mungari home.

Mungari is perfectly located a short drive from the quaint village of Berry and the picturesque Kangaroo Valley. Some of the South Coasts finest wineries, golf courses and pristine beaches are scattered close by, just waiting for you to discover and explore.

Very memorable home away from home-so many special touches

Robyn R - 23rd May 2023

Wonderful weekend away with the family-very memorable home away from home-so many special touches. Very windy roads from either direction to property so take it easy in the dark or wet weather. House is truly amazing & so cosy. We made good use of both indoor & outdoor fireplaces (plenty of wood provided) & the rainforest surrounding the property is great for exploring and makes for an amazing outlook. Many places throughout the house & property to chill out. Booked a nearby wine tasting & lunch

Everything we could dream of was here!

Natalie H - 16th May 2023

We loved the location and everything we could dream of was here. We especially loved the fire pit and the bush walk in the rain forest. We loved the birds and the amazing beds. It was so relaxing and thank you for sharing your house with us!

Lovely stay!

Amanda M - 13th April 2023

We had a lovely stay over Easter with our family. Well situated between Berry and Kangaroo Valley. Heaps of room for everyone to spread out and a fab selection of books to choose from. Our kids loved the grassy hill and having a fire going.L Was awesome to have a big stock of firewood easy to access.

So many thoughtful touches throughout

Renae H - 31st January 2023

We (six adults) stayed here for a few days over the New Year break and thoroughly enjoyed it. The home was very comfortable and spacious and there are so many thoughtful touches throughout. The house is equipped with everything you could think of and we really appreciated the effort that has gone into it. The grounds are lovely as well and the home offers plenty of choices of outdoor areas to sit and enjoy a quiet cuppa or glass of something…The location was really good.

Great weekend getaway

Great House

What an amazing house. Great grounds. Would come back again.

We all enjoyed it

Lena C - 7th October 2022

A beautiful stay in a gorgeous location, it was a lovely weekend away and we were over the moon with it all. The property was even larger than expected - three living rooms! It was very clean and had great amenities, including a well equipped study, a beautiful bathtub, games corner and wood for a toasty fireplace. I would caution future guests to be careful on the drive up, as recent rains have caused many potholes on the roads. Thankfully Berry Getaways was kind to inform us of this beforehand.

Felt like home instantly!

Ben M - 23rd August 2022
