Home  /  Plan  /  Where to stay  /  Starlight Cabin


A secluded self contained cabin with generous breakfast provisions – perfect for a relaxing getaway.

Starlight Cabin and surrounds is an oasis. The cabin is completely private; nestled into the hillside it overlooks the spectacular views across the 200 acre property and Grahams Valley. Inside it is fitted out with creature comforts including spacious bathroom with rain shower, open plan living area, comfy bed and quality linen, great sound system, gourmet kitchen with espresso coffee machine. Kitchen has full sized oven, cooktop, and fridge/freezer. Both the living area and bedrooms open onto an outdoor veranda with couches and views to get lost in.

Ideally suited for a couple. However, additional guests can be accommodated upon request. Cabin is super cosy during the cooler months with a potbelly fire place and warm bedding. Cabin is fully insulated on walls and ceiling to keep the space cosy in winter and cool in summer. Lots of windows let in the breezes and give you views from every angle. Plenty of space to bring your four legged friends – large, pastured horse yard available and fenced yard for dogs.

Your hosts live in the main house on the property (just next door) and are available if you need help with anything. Being farmers they are usually around the place somewhere and will aim to be there to help guests check in. They think their place is a perfect place for a relaxing retreat so they are happy if you want to keep to yourselves; but equally, they are happy to share their love for their home and region with you too!

Adventurers, bush walkers and nature lovers will delight in the peaceful surrounds. Kai Iwi Estate is an easy 10 minutes drive south of Glen Innes or 50 minutes north of Armidale.
