The open plan living/kitchen area opens out onto an alfresco deck with additional table and seating in a private courtyard garden.

Off street parking and ample parking on the street. It is truly your home away from home!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property! We stayed over the October long weekend and Adora Cottage was a perfect base for exploring the Blue Mountains. It was wonderfully well-equipped (especially the kitchen, which was amazing), beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Maurice was efficient, communicative and easy to deal with, going out of his way to ensure that our arrival and stay went smoothly. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful Art Deco cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Adora Cottage, which has been beautifully decorated in Art Deco style throughout. It's cosy and warm and is very well maintained. Good location close to the centre of Katoomba, just a short walk to the shops. Such a relaxing atmosphere too, with plenty to occupy us, with books, magazines, and board games. The kitchen is especially well stocked, in terms of pots/pans and appliances, if you enjoy home cooking. And the day bed in the front sunroom is the perfect spot to read. Quiet and comfortable, a home away from home. Thanks Maurice!
