Great view but watch out for hidden charges

  • 4 of 5

We stayed one night and the view was to die for. Dalia was lovely and the videos before arriving are helpful. We did however get a price from stayz, 2 adults and one child, $301 (our budget was $300).- and then when we went to pay, there was an extra $35 cleaning charge (this is before we even stayed). Despite notes all over the place saying you have to leave it spotless, put out the garbage, no dishes to be left anywhere etc. We did leave it spotless and Dalia offered to not charge for our 4 year old when we complained but I guess its annoying when the price you accept isn't the final price. The security deposit of $250 doesn't come back for a week either.

Owner's Response: Dear Anna, Let me clear any confusion here. There is a one off cleaning fee attributed to every booking and is separate to the nightly tariff. I charge a small nominal fee per stay which is far less than what I actually pay the cleaners to clean and set up a large 2 bedroom unit. This is not an extra cleaning charge as you did leave the apartment clean as stated, this is the full fee which I heavily subsidise to keep your one night stay affordable. As is common practise in holiday apartments, there is a sign posted in the kitchen to advise guests to leave the premises in the same clean manner that they were found and yes this is reiterated in the green house manual and to direct people to the location of the bins downstairs for their rubbish. There are certainly not "notes all over the place" as suggested. I did personally refund your 4yr olds fee as soon as you queried this with me as I felt that was unfair of Stayz to charge you as their system does not discern between a toddler and a 16yr old child. And lastly, It seems that you were sent your Security Deposit within 4 days of your check out as I have the email from Stayz which you also would have received. Perhaps this was all just a misunderstanding.

Spectacular views and perfect location for us

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three days at the Cloud 9 Escape. Dalia could not have been nicer as our hostess, and the apartment is beautiful. This is the best view we have had at any of our worldwide stays at many different properties. It was also a great location for access to the Echo Point lookout, which provides stunning views of the Jamison Valley. It is about a three minute walk.

The apartment itself is nicely appointed, with very nice bedding, linens and towels. We cooked in a couple of nights because we wanted to take advantage of the views while we were dining. Really wonderful.

The address is about a mile from downtown Katoomba, so quite convenient to grocery stores and restaurants. We would highly recommend the Cloud Nine Escape.

We actually stayed during January 2018, but the drop down menu below did not allow entry of 2018.

Great Escape Location

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location and views. Comfortable, clean apartment, very well maintained and everything in near perfect order. The host Dalia was lovely, very welcoming. Plenty of aspects of the apartment that showed her attention to detail and appreciation of "the little things", such as the coffee machine, croissants and wine.

Couldn't fault the property on anything, had a great weekend away as a result.

Serenity in the clouds!

  • 4 of 5

We had a gorgeous honeymoon at the gorgeous Cloud 9! We loved our week so much, we didn't want to leave. Surely the view is one of the best views in the world! Always changing, always engaging. So good to restore the soul! The apartment was very comfortable - comfy and luxurious bed and kitchen equipped with all the basics. Old bathroom and noisy toilet, but once you learn the trick, it's no issue and the shower is fine.

Dalia, the host, is very welcoming and generously let us wander around the extraordinary astrological gardens on the property. So peaceful and lovely. Great energy. Lots of bird life. I also enjoyed Dalia's reenergising and rejuvenating facial massage down in the rotunda in the garden. Highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to sit, breathe and just be.

Owner's Response: Dear Kristina, Wishing you and hubby all the very best in your life together. So happy you enjoyed all aspects of your honeymoon including your facial rejuvenation. I happen to like the vintage retro style bathroom as it is part of the character of the house. Shame you didn't think to advise me, that the toilet float was out, as I would have called the plumber immediately. I am sorry for your inconvenience. Cloud 9 is very well maintained and the comfort of our guests is paramount. This has now been rectified.
