Beautiful 1885 Victorian Terrace
About Jeff Jones
Our family loves the world heritage Blue Mountains. We have prepared the Victorian Terraces so that our guests can enjoy it too. We love bush walks, and trips to Jenolan Caves, Mount Wilson and the many beautiful gardens. We also enjoy reading in front of an open fire and drinking good coffee. We like bike riding especially if there is a good café at the end of the ride. We have over 40 years experience in the Blue Mountains so can advise you on the best walks, lookouts, tourist activities and where to find the local wildlife. We can put you in contact with local adventure specialists that can organise specialist activities given the area has some of the best lookouts, abseiling & canyons in Australia. Living in Mount Victoria with the clean crisp air, friendly neighbours and unbelievably beautiful area is a dream come true.
Jeff Jones purchased this Villa in 2003

Fabulous 1920s Stay in the Blue Mountains
My friend and I had an absolutely wonderful stay in our Victorian Terrace. The 1920's decor was beautiful and transported us back in time. All rooms were wonderfully restored but reflected the heritage of the building. It was clean, comfortable and warm (what you need late in autumn in the Blue Mountains!) and only wish we could have stayed longer! Jeff was a wonderful host, happy to assist with any questions and available on site when needed. We will be back for sure!
Beautifully Restored Heritage Listed Victorian Building
We stayed here to attend the UltraTrail Australia running event in May, as the property is 20 mins from Scenic World, and located in a quieter area away from the popular areas like Leura and Katoomba. Bank House is a beautifully restored property with central heating (perfect for the chilly Blue Mountains), and modern bathroom and kitchen. Clean property with comfortable bedding. We were travelling late from Sydney and Jeff happily met us at the property at 10pm with a bottle of milk and offer of a fruit basket for the morning.
Just be aware there are quite strict rules for staying:
1. As "The oven is not connected", there is no cooking allowed on the premises. We worked around this by having soups warmed up in the microwave and overnight oats/cold yoghurt & granola for breakfast. There is a coffee machine and kettle available.
2. "This terrace has been designed for up to four adults to enjoy a safe, quiet, restful stay, so no children (0 to 18yrs old) are permitted to stay. Under no circumstances are extra guests permitted on site even to visit guests."
3. "No Smoking"
4. "No Pets"
Peace, Quiet, Serenity & Generous Hospitality Within Gorgeous Victorian Terrace
Jeff & Deb were incredibly gracious & generous hosts. All our interactions were with Jeff who was all too happy to tell us the best sites, offer to help us book anything we wanted to do, invite us to dine with him & have a bbq in the outside area “with the best steak in town” (although we unfortunately didn’t end up making it due to our itinerary), provide us with wood and firelighters as well as free movie tickets to the local and historical Mount Vic Flicks, which was such a great experience! They even serve hot soup and bread at the snack bar! The property is the height of hospitality, with complimentary goodies and everything very neat and tidy. It is so peaceful and quiet at night here such that we were quite undisturbed. We enjoyed exploring the town and the close proximity to Katoomba, Blackheath and Mount Tomah. We highly recommend this property!
Great place to stay
This place was absolutely amazing. Very nice and clean and well maintained. The kitchen was really well equipped and the fire place in the living room was nice. I will score this place 10 out of 10. Definitely want to come back again in the future.
Thank you so much for choosing to stay at the Bank House Mount Victoria. You were perfect guests and we do hope to see you again
We had a great stay. Jeff was very helpful and lit a beautiful fire for us. The home was beautiful and warm. It was great being able to book for 1 night. We will come back!
Well all we can say is that they were the perfect guests. We are creating a unique type of accommodation specifically for couples.
We stayed for our first wedding anniversary and would come back in a heart beat. The house was absolutely perfect and Jeff was the ultimate host - made us feel completely at home.
On recommendation we went to the Manor House where we met some lovely locals and had a beautiful dinner.
The house is in a beautiful location in a gorgeous little community
Absolutely loved the whole experience.
