A little bit about Sophia’s

Sophia’s is a traditional Blue Mountains style weatherboard house that sits beautifully in an elevated position providing open vistas and a quiet, charming ambience. Located on a quite side street that runs parallel to the Leura Mall, the location in Jersey Avenue is perfectly positioned to be close to everything.

The Leura village centre, with it’s collection of restaurants, cafés, unique shops, galleries and wonderful spring flowering cherry trees is just an easy 10 minute walk. In the other direction the start of many special bush walks and cliff top lookouts are only 5 minutes away. In addition the Katoomba/Leura Trolley bus service stops at the end of the road, ready to whisk you off to all the local tourist attractions, including the famous Echo Point and Three Sisters.

The large, comfortable house has lots of areas to relax in, both inside and out. From the wide front veranda you can look above the National Park towards the neighbouring village of Katoomba, giving you a lovely open view and a perfect spot for an evening tipple. The garden at the back offer plenty of space for children to play in and a BBQ and deck to enjoy those summer days in true Australian fashion

The large lounge area give everyone plenty of space to relax and enjoy each others company, play games, watch movies or curl up by the fire with a good book. The separate dining area provides seating for 13 – enough for the biggest of Family Feasts and also has a log burner to give that extra touch of ambience.

The property also has a children’s nook with a TV and Play Station 3 to keep those younger members of the group entertained and having fun.

Whatever the season the house has something to enjoy, be it the veranda, deck and garden in the summer or the wood fires and deep leather loungers in the cooler months, catching up with family and friends will always be pleasant.

With Log fires, high ceilings and wooden floors Sophia’s has lots of charm and character, yet with new appliances, soft furnishings and furniture you also have contemporary, convenient features with a hint of luxury.

Sophia’s of Leura – your Blue Mountains Holiday Cottage.

Beautiful location...

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 4 of my friends recently. This house was so perfect for our needs that we've booked again for next year. Clean, spacious, quiet and an easy walk to the shops. Hayley provided a wonderfully well-stocked fridge/pantry for breakfast as well. Only one draw-back: fly screens needed on the bedroom windows and french doors leading to the back deck. Other than that it was perfect!

Great stay at Sophia's, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

A group of 9 of us (friends) stayed at Sophia's for the weekend and had a great time.

there is plenty for a group of this size and enough beds to accommodate everyone.

The property is well maintained and clean.

The supplies left for breakfast made for an easy first morning.

It is very central to Leura and any Blue Mtns escape.

The owners are v responsive with any queries you may have and accommodated us extremely well.

Thanks for a great stay

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This house was excellent for our family of 13 including 5 young children. There was plenty of room for the children to play with a nice, large backyard. House is located in a wonderful area with bush walks and Leura Mall all close by. Visiting in winter, we appreciated the central heating.

Highly recommended!

A joyous relaxing weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Sophia's before and were so looking forward to returning this month for our annual girls weekend away. As always we were not disappointed. Hayley takes such great care in making sure the house is ready and welcoming with provisions for breakfast and plenty of wood to get us through the cold night.

Excellent weekend away with friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Sophia's. It was an easy walk into Leura and to bushwalks. Breakfast was supplied on the first morning and was plentiful. There were 6 of us enjoying a girls weekend and there were enough very comfortable beds for all, with quality linen on each. There are two bathrooms and an extra toilet, so no need for waiting. There was a large dining table and three comfortable lounges, so plenty of room for all to sit around for cards and Pictionary. The two fires, one combustion and one open were in full use as we were there in July. Unfortunately, there was not enough medium sized wood supplied and we had to go collect more kindling. However, it was great having the central heating and electric blankets. There is also a large backyard and outdoor area for the warmer months. All in all, I would highly recommend this place for group getaways.
