Somewhat disappointing

  • 1 of 5

I rented the house in Jan 2016. It is advertised to sleep 10. However there were only 8 beds and attempts to contact the owners or caretakers were unsuccessful.

Owner's Response: We can only point to the other very positive reviews received and our overall average of 4 Star with several reviews ranking us 5 Star in all categories. No matter how hard you try you just cannot please everybody, especially if they have expectations based on incorrect assumptions. We manage this property on behalf of the owner. This enquiry stated 2 Adults 1 Child. We queried the need for such a large house and were told additional guests would be staying but the number was yet to be determined. The Stayz listing states that the house sleeps up to 10 and states that this consists of 2 double beds, 1 king bed and 2 single beds plus an optional double sofa bed if required, a total of 6 not 8. When the booking was confirmed the number of guests was still not certain and we did not undertake to provide the sofa bed as this was not specifically requested nor was the total number of guests confirmed. It appears the sofa bed was removed for repairs by the owner at the time as there was no stated need for the extra sleeping accommodation, the booking still stated 2 Adults and 1 Child as originally entered by the guest. We clearly stated that we would be overseas at the time of the stay and provided an alternate phone number, if fact the owner's phone number, as a contact point. The owner has confirmed that no query or complaint was received.

Just Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous house, nicely renovated but still keeping it's old world charm. Kids loved the piano! The ducted gas heating to every room was just wonderful in winter. Centrally located in a quiet area of Katoomba with an easy walk to shops. The property managers were very helpful. We had a great time and would definitely go back. Highly recommended!

Great Blue Mountains Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our group - it easily accommodated 3 couples, 3 kids and a dog. The house was spacious, bedrooms large and it was very well equipped (kitchen came incredibly well stocked and is full of all mod cons including a proper coffee machine). It is centrally located to Katoomba, Leura and to many great walking trails. The property managers were very responsive to all our needs. We had a great weekend and will definitely be back.

Sound property

Owner's Response: The house is equipped with central heating for winter, it is not reverse cycle and this is pretty clear from the control panel. If guests were trying to make the heating work as cooling, this is just not possible. Very few houses in the Blue Mountains have airconditioning as the climate generally makes this unnecessary.
