    Kalinya Estate is a phenomenal property. At the centre, a big grand colonial Australian mansion. There's a huge long table suitable for a large social dinner for 20, a tennis court, an amazing pool and spa. The grounds are well maintained and amazing detail and forethought has gone into the design and layout of everything. We booked the grand homestead and the luxury lodge, we had 18 people, with only couples sharing rooms. Every room had it's own en suite, and it was very spacious for 18. There's a beautiful grand piano in the music room. Each and every room tastefully decorated. We booked Kalinya for my partner's 30th birthday with close friends and family. It was the perfect location to celebrate. Just an hour and 15 out of Sydney city. I can't recommend this place higher. It's one of the most beautiful properties we've stayed at. We had an amazing weekend, Kalinya Estate has it all, so all that was left to do was enjoy our time with great friends. Mandy was a gem, was so easy to deal with, and helped us tailor our experience to be exactly what we wanted and more.

    If you are looking for a great spot for a weekend away with friends, this is the best place you could possibly want. From the moment you walk in the door, it gives a great sense of luxury. Everybody will leave feeling utterly spoiled. We spent a weekend at Kalinya for a girls' weekend away. There were 15 of us. The house is very spacious with so many little spots to break away for private chats or alone time if you need it. The communal areas are amazing. We loved the large dining table and enjoyed having all our meals around it for breakfast and dinner. The 2 fireplaces were such a bonus and really made the house feel so cosy and created a beautiful atmosphere. Of course there was also central heating which we used on Friday night. The girls loved the jacuzzi/spa and spent a couple of hours relaxing in there on Saturday night. The beds are all super comfortable and beautifully dressed with electric blankets. The decor is like from a magazine with the most beautiful large art works on all the walls (some are for sale), the most amazing light fittings and gorgeous furniture - the photos do not do this place justice. There is PLENTY to do in this house for adults and children (although we didn't have any kids with us). Loads of up to date games, puzzles, ping pong table, giant chess, large swimming pool, tennis court etc. etc. The pianola attached to the grand piano made for great entertainment and some of our party even enjoyed providing some background music of their own. Good Bose sound equipment was also available where we connected a phone to play our own music . I so wish to come back to this beautiful house in summer when the garden is in full bloom as it must be even more beautiful. On Saturday we ventured into Bowral for a browse around all the quirky little shops which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Mandy was a fantastic host and regularly checked whether we needed anything.

    Staying at Kalinya Estate was a total dream from start to finish - we never wanted to leave! It was the most stunning, luxurious, stylish, fun and activity-filled private accommodation that all 25 of us had ever experienced in Australia and it was the most special setting to celebrate my 30th birthday.From the multiple fireplaces and fire pits, to the pizza oven and BBQs, to the tennis court and cinema, the swimming pool and hot tub, the luxurious bedding and brand new grand piano - everything was of the highest quality, condition and designed with such style, thought and creativity. Mandy Barnes could not have been a more hospitable, welcoming or helpful host to deal with in the lead up to and during the weekend. Thank you again for such a wonderful, memorable weekend!We are already looking at booking our next group trip back at Kalinya Estate in the New Year!

    Mandy at Kalinya Gardens Estate was instrumental in tailoring a truly amazing experience for our business off-site. Mandy and her team of trusted caterers put together multiple options from us to choose from, all of which was spectacular. They were also sensitive to our dietary requirements. The grounds of Kalinya Gardens Estate were perfect for our Winter event. Everyone had their own room and the facilities were perfect for team collaboration. We also made good use of the TV for presentation and Finska and giant chess board after the sessions.The bedrooms were spacious and between the two houses we had access to, there were enough for one each. Thanks Mandy and team! We had an amazing and highly productive time.

    We had the most amazing girls weekend staying at the beautiful Kalinya Gardens. Spread across both properties we enjoyed long lunches, cosy campfires, dips in the jacuzzi and lots of laughs. Thanks to Mandy for being a wonderful host - including recommending caterer Labyrinth who did a fabulous job catering for our long lunch on the verandah. No-one wanted to go anywhere once they had arrived! We hope to return again soon.
