About the property

Alta Mira sits on a quiet tree-lined street in Katoomba, surrounded by its lovely gardens and neighbouring Federation style houses. A renovation several years ago carefully preserved the best of the period features, such as the original imported English canopy bath in the main bathroom, while adding a gorgeous new modern kitchen and another modern bathroom. Alta Mira can sleep up to 15 people (2 x Queen bedrooms, 1 x Double bedroom, 4 Singles in one bedroom, plus a separate sunroom with a double and a single bed. Optional sofabed in lounge area.) There are two bathrooms servicing the house: the original Edwardian bathroom with glass canopy bathtub and pull-chain toilet, plus a modern bath with separate shower and spa bath.

Other features for our guests' enjoyment include a nearly new large flatscreen LCD television and BluRay player, complimentary WIFI access, a separate TV which runs the games box, two Bluetooth enabled speakers, and a period piano for music buffs, plus Books, games, videogames for the gamebox and DVDs.

Alta Mira is centrally heated throughout the house, including heated towel rails in both bathrooms. There is also a gas log fire in the dining for great ambience and convenience as well. There are electric blankets supplied on all beds.

Alta Mira is just a few minutes' walk to Katoomba Street, with its cafes, restaurants and shops, but is tucked away in a quiet corner of Katoomba. Perfect for a mountains getaway, you get the best of both worlds. Go for a stroll to Katoomba Town Centre, take a slightly longer walk to the Three Sisters, or just wander through Alta Mira's private gardens and then curl up in Alta Mira's centrally heated and beautifully furnished interior.

Alta Mira is part of a select group of quality houses in Katoomba and Leura. If Alta Mira is unavailable or not quite right for your group, please consider one of our other properties:

Our stay at Alta Mira was purely magic given that I was hoping for snow for

my birthday and I got it.

How special was that!!!!

Thank you for accommodating my wish to have a fire and that made it just so

much more beautiful.

It is certainly a place I would go back again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Arrived to find a dishwasher full of dirty dishes and could not work the machine so had to hand wash someone else's mess. Contacted the Owners but did not hear from them all weekend. This property is in a great location and easy to walk into town and local sites. There is an eclectic mix of china, glassware and kitchen ware but was fine for our night in by the fire in the dining room. The house is warm, cosy and spacious but could do with some TLC.

Fabulous house

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family of 14 had a great weekend. The house is really warm, and very comfortable. Sofa bed very uncomfortable so take a blow up mattress if you need the extra bed. The yard is lovely but isn't secure.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away at Altimira. I was there on a girls weekend and there were 12 of us and the house was ideal for a visit. Cosy and secure, I would recommend this location for a group holiday.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place is just beautiful. We had Christmas here and the 11 of us stayed so comfortably here. It's close to town and the hosts are so wonderful and cooked us a turkey and vegggies for Christmas lunch that was delicious!

So much space and a beautiful yard with lots of space and reason to be outside. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: As a few prospective guests have asked, the catering service is completely separate from the accommodation. There is no catering onsite and nobody resides there. You book and have exclusive use of the whole house. Patrick & Tina Getawayhouses
