Lovely cottage with a beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has plenty of character and is filled with interesting items. The beds and furniture are comfortable and a combination of reverse cycle air conditioning, gas heaters in the lounge and bedrooms, that also has electric nlankets, ensured a comfortable winter's stay. We didn't bother with the fireplace and only used the AC overnight.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need to prepare your meals including condiments, teas, coffee maker, instant coffees and milk.

Bathroom and laundry supplies are also provided - all you need to bring is your toothbrush and toothpaste.

Cleanliness was excellent and there were no signs of previous pets so the accommodation is also suitable for people with no animals.

The cottage is an easy 10 minute walk to Katoomba CBD

Fiona is a very helpful host as well.

A refreshing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a beautifully clean cottage, soft music playing and the air conditioning on! All the little extra's like fresh milk in the fridge were so appreciated. Our 10 year old Bichon Frise, was very comfortable there too and enjoyed his walks on his lead in the back garden. So restful and well equipped - I grew up in the lower Blue Mountains, but there is nothing like the upper mountains to relax. Thank you Fiona.
