About Dalia Isles
Having grown up in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney I decided that I needed a change of pace - fresh mountain air and quality of life - and before I knew it, this beautiful 2 storey house and amazing property found me - It was definitely love at first sight. I love the garden and the space it offers. In spring especially, the garden is home to over 8 varieties of birds lots of butterflies a blue tongue lizard and resident Lyre birds who spend their days digging for worms. My favourite pass time is bushwalking and discovering new tracks and waterfalls in the mountains. I enjoy meeting and greeting my guests from all over the world. It brings me so much pleasure to share this "slice of heaven" as it's too wonderful to keep to myself. I came from a corporate background in Recruitment, Sales and training and am very much a people person so my new lifestyle in this beautiful community welcoming my visitors is perfect for me.
Dalia Isles purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Dalia Isles chose Katoomba
Like I said I manifested exactly the property I had visualised months before. It had to have breathtaking views of the Jamison Valley and have a great shopping centre. For 49yrs the property was owned by the well-known Australian Astrologer Richard Sterling whose Astrology columns you may have read in the Australian Women's Weekly. When I was in Recruitment I studied Numerology to help understand the strengths and weaknesses of the applicants I was placing and Richard Sterling was definitely one of my fans in the 1980's so I knew this property had been earmarked for me. It's in the most perfect location for tourism and convenience and is the only Astrology sign posted garden of it's kind in Australia.
What makes this Apartment unique
The upstairs apartment is positioned on the edge of the escarpment with a huge deck offering 180 degree breathtaking views of the Jamison Valley and Mount Solitary. In winter especially the northerly aspect means that the sun warms your body throughout the year and into the cooler months. The house is fully appointed with all the comforts of home and so close to 5 major bushwalks and 5 minutes drive to the Katoomba shopping centre. You are very welcome to take a stroll through the "Garden of the Stars" during your stay. I'm sure Richard would love you to find your star sign in the garden below, and also take in the beauty and serenity that surrounds you. The property exudes healing energy which will leave you feeling peaceful and rejuvenated. The perfect location to receive a totally unique Natural Facelift Massage treatment which weather permitting is done in the garden Gazebo or in your room. Make sure you book in advance.

A beautiful place to stay
The view is absolutely breathtaking - and it changes throughout the day as the light moves. Arthur Streeton would have had a field day.
The property is as clean as a whistle. It has everything you need but is still uncluttered.
Dalia - your host - is also super nice and will give you local tips if you want them.
The cockatoos were amusing...
We highly recommend Cloud 9. We loved our time there.
Dear David, Thank you for your kind review and it was indeed a pleasure to host you both. I am so happy you had a great time, and were able to relax and take advantage of all the opportunities that Cloud 9 and the beautiful Astrological Gardens below have to offer. I sincerely hope to meet you next time you visit.
Breathtaking views and wonderful hospitality from the owner
This place is absolutely incredible, in my opinion by far the best way to experience the beauty of the Blue Mountains
Great location and a lovely property, with all the facilities you could need!
Thank you Dalia for a wonderful stay and for your kind nature
Beautiful, restful place
The amazing view sets you up for a fabulous holiday. Amenities are very good with a comfortable bed, well appointed kitchen, plenty of space to spread out and relax, and very good WiFi speed. Cloud Nine is an incredibly quiet haven where you can forget about the world outside.
Thank you Ellen for taking the time to send your feedback I’m so happy Cloud9 didn’t disappoint you. It is a paradise and would love to have you back anytime!
Amazing views from the terrace of the Dardanelles Pass. Quiet location just a stones throw to the 3 sisters viewing point. A little bit further and you’re at scenic world before the crowds.
Hi Claire, Many thanks for your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time to review Cloud 9 and very happy you were able to relax and enjoy the view. See you next time.
There is something magical and restorative about this place. It starts with the view from the verandah - jaw-dropping, it simply took our breath away. I must admit, we didn't sleep much during our two-night stay: we watched the sunsets, waited for the moon to rise, set the alarm for the middle of the night to see the stars, and got up early to catch the sunrises! It was incredible to just sit still and watch, and listen to silence and nature. The "Garden of the Stars" was also delightful: it zig-zagged down the hill on paved paths/stairs, and was full of gorgeous blossoms and little surprises. The apartment was as described: very spacious, clean, comfortable, with lots of seating; it had a fully-equipped kitchen and all the amenities, plus parking. We used the washing machine and drying rack (very convenient, especially after our long day hikes in the area). The location was superb - a short walk around the corner to Echo Point and the Three Sisters, and about a 10-min walk to the Lilianfels fine-dining restaurant. Dalia was a most gracious host - very welcoming, but also gave us our space. We had such a special time here that three months after our stay and half-way around the world, we're compelled to write a review!
How gracious and thoughtful of you Lily to write this review. So pleased that you both had a magical time. Makes me very happy indeed! God Bless
An amazing property with a world-class view!
Cloud 9 is simply amazing. From the moment we walked through the doors, we were stunned by the incredible views from the balcony. We were met by the owner Dalia, who is just lovely, and very welcoming and warm.
The apartment itself is extremely homely and comfortable, and absolutely spotless. In fact, Dalia had just had the carpets cleaned prior to our arrival. We instantly felt at home! The big bed was super comfortable, and the apartment contained anything you would need - from all cooking wares to DVDs, books and board games. Dalia even left some chocolates and a bottle of wine for us to enjoy!
Cloud 9 is JUST around the corner from Echo Point and the Three Sisters lookout. It takes just 2 minutes to walk down there for some amazing views. We spent hours on the deck chairs at the apartment balcony however, as the private, peaceful view of the valley was too beautiful to pass up.
This was our first trip to the Blue Mountains, and we were actually heartbroken to have to leave Cloud 9. We cannot wait to come back again in the future!
