Private Houses To Hire For Parties In NSW

Private Houses To Hire For Parties NSW

If finding a party house to rent in NSW feels like you're searching for a needle in a haystack, it's not because you're doing it wrong. New South Wales only has a small supply of private houses to hire for parties, but they include a couple of cracking homesteads and a handful of very unique private properties. 

Our collection of party houses below are all private properties that offer exclusive venue hire for birthday parties, engagement parties and other private events. The venue hire fee includes approval to host an event on the property plus overnight accommodation for some or all guests.

Because there's not a huge supply of rental homes for parties in New South Wales, we've added a few alternative options below. You'll find Airbnb party venues including a guesthouse built from the ruins of a church, an exclusive-use lodge with communal party areas overlooking a private vineyard and retreat-style venues where guests are often able to camp affordably or for free.

Most private party houses in Sydney are located on the city's outskirts due to residential noise restrictions. The same goes for party homes in other major cities including Wollongong, Byron Bay and popular coastal towns. The good news is that private houses to rent for parties in country areas often have no neighbours, and therefore no curfew.

Here's a list of the best houses, homesteads and an assortment of other private properties to hire for parties in NSW. Make sure you leave them pristine, so the owners continue to rent them out for parties! (Psssst, venue owners love renters who take any excess rubbish with them.)
