JILLS LOFT LEURA - romantic unique getaway

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment


About the property

JILLS LOFT LEURA..cute & a newly opened yet secluded romantic studio conveniently located on the border of Katoomba and Leura townships. The apartment is tucked away in the ‘Loft’ of a grand 1800’s built home – JILLS RETREAT …. but no guests are booked into the Main House at the same time. You have peace and privacy tucked away at the top of the world with total privacy. We offer a unique bright white private escape for a ‘romantic get-away for 2! This very contemporary studio apartment is tailored toward young couples looking for romance peace and quiet, single travellers and business people looking for short term stays in ‘unique accommodation’. Please note we take 1 night bookings during the week but there is a minimum 2 night stay on weekends. Thankyou.

The bath is sensational up in the clouds and purposely built for 2! It also operates as a 'hand-held' shower...we don't have a separate shower area only a mini ensuite (sink + loo) which is also 'open plan'. We do have a privacy screen but for very modest guests maybe not the place for you.

Jills Loft Leura enjoys a fabulous location.. ideally located mid-way between Leura Village and it’s pretty tree lined main street and some of the best cliff top walking trails and lookouts that Katoomba Village and the wonders the stunning Blue Mountains has have to offer. Enjoy the boutique stores, great cafes, restaurants, galleries and markets or simply take pleasure in the many bush walks, bike rides and horse-riding on offer...all with magnificent views and wildlife only minutes from your front door. All attractions are listed for your convenience in the Guest Directory.

*Please note in its very nature the Loft apartment being a Loft is low on the sides...we have utilised this by way of cupboards but suggest maybe not suitable for very tall guests as we have had reports of the occasional bopping of the head on the low sides.

Jills Loft has a private entrance up a side garden path where you are met with a wonderful ‘spiral staircase’ which takes you up to newly renovated loft studio. A fully self contained apartment with total open plan living..lounge, dining, double bed with white egyptian cotton bed-linen, mini ensuite, lovely fluffy towels and kitchenette with bar fridge and microwave. To enhance your stay we supply the very latest 'Dolce Gusto' cappuccino machine, all crockery, cutlery and glassware along with kettle, toaster, a casserole maker, jaffle iron, egg maker and plenty of lovely bowls and serving utensils. Cooking facilities aren’t available other than microwave but this encourages you to head out and enjoy the fabulous local cafés and restaurants just a short distance away. Why cook when you are on vacation! We do offer sweet savoury and Gourmet Hampers to be awaiting your arrival and many take-away menus ..all to enhance your stay. Delivery time just 5 mins to JILLS. There is a list of different styled restaurants and various cuisines emailed on confirmation and in the Guest directory at the Loft apartment.

Lay back and relax with a glass of bubbly in the luxurious ‘French Tub’ looking out of the sky windows and the tree-lined landscape from all the windows around the Loft. Listen to the birds or watch the stars at night….feeling like you could touch them!

Alternatively snuggle up on those cold mountain days and nights watching HDTV and DVDs or listening to your favourite music with our IPOD dock supplied whilst relaxing in the French Tub. There is a selection of discs and DVD's, playing cards and board games available. A private massage or private chef can also be arranged on-site for you.

We highly recommendThe enjoying a relaxing Facial, 'couples massage' or a 'Hot Stone Massage' by our Massage Therapist at the 'Retreat' or our 'REIKI' Spiritual Healer who does healing and readings for you at JILLS.

GIFT CERTIFICATES also available.

WE OFFER A 'CONCIERGE SERVICE' which means we can organise anything guests need including rose-petals, birthday cakes, champagne, roses, chocolates...home cooked meals and HAMPERS...whatever you need our Manager is on hand to fulfill and requirements you may have.

The Loft is nestled into beautifully landscaped gardens. There is also your own private sunny deck at the rear of the main residence ..this is yours to use exclusively and smoking is allowed outside only. Relax and allow your senses to be taken to another place. King Parrots, Rosellas, Cockatoos and laughing Kookaburras all keep you entertained. The warm sunshine streams into the loft or wander through the stunning gardens on an acre block designed by world renowed Paul Sorenson of Leura Everglades fame.

We don’t rent out JILLS RETREAT (Main House) at the same time so Jills Loft guests are assured peace and privacy. Guests get to wander around the huge property and enjoy the BALI HUT and their own sunny private deck and enjoying the huge grounds on an acre of lush lawns and dry-stoned walls again designed by the famous Paul Sorensen.

JILLS LOFT enjoys a fabulous location.. just a short distance from the heart of Leura & Katoomba Villages. Enjoy the boutique stores, great cafes, restaurants, galleries and markets or simply take pleasure in the many bush walks, bike rides or horse-riding throughout the beautiful Blue Mountains, only minutes from your front door.


Jills Loft is at the heart of everything this World Heritage listed region has to offer. Leura's wonderful shopping, markets, Katoomba's famous Carrington Hotel, Echo Point and the Three Sisters, day spas, cafes, restaurants and all local bush walks and bike rides.

A lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

Jill's Loft is warm, cozy and relaxing. The bath is a sensation and it was lovely to relax in such an inviting space. The Loft is equipped with everything you'll need from a sandwich press to some great DVDs.

We also highly recommend the spa on site. Trudi, the therapist, was lovely and very professional.

If privacy is important to you, the bathroom set up with screened off toilet may not be suitable. However since the Loft is designed for couples, this is not a big concern.

We had a great stay and would highly recommend!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Booked Jills Loft for two nights, and wished we could stay longer. The loft is well equipped with everything we needed. Lots of candles to give an extra romantic vibe to the place. Margie was super helpful and friendly the whole time we needed to contact her. One of the best things about it, was the location, literally 5 min drive from Katoomba shops and Leura. A lot to see and do all around 5-15 min drive. We loved our stay, and will definitely be back. Really well located, but still very quiet and peaceful to stay in. We loved it.

We stayed at JILLS LOFT LEURA and had a wonderful time. It is even nicer than the photos on the internet. Definitely the WOW factor and definitely 5 stars..!

The Loft has a wonderful feel you are in the clouds and at night in the stars..The BATH is WOW factor. There was even bubbles left there to have with our own bubbles for our anniversary. You sit in the bath just looking up at the stars and feeling amongst them. We are young travellers on a budget and we felt like we were in a 5star hotel. Everything is brand new and fresh white. The towels are fluffy and lovely and the linen is beautiful cotton (Egyptian) I'm certain of that ..really nice.There are DVDs, CD's games, candles's amazing. Even the kitchenette has anything you could want and to top it all off a Cappuccino machine..!

So cosy and warm as being a Loft gives you the feeling of openness but cosy also..not a cold open space as it is all open-plan. Even the bathroom which we didn't mind as it has a privacy screen. We didn't care we feel in love with the BATH! We were lucky the weather was beautiful and my partner and I had a lovely time sitting on the outside deck overlooking the lush pretty gardens and a 'natural spring'. There is a real Balinese feel here.

We didn't venture out to see too much of the Blue Mountains unfortunately as we enjoyed the tranquil surroundings too much. The birdlife and peace were so enjoyable. The BALI HUT was so lovely to relax and read a book... snuggled within the trees ...just heaven. Margie the Owner was also very lovely to deal with..nothing was any trouble but we didn't get to meet her (she is based in Sydney) but her Managers Catherine and Michael were lovely (met them as we were arriving). Margie recommended lovely local restaurants, she even broke it down into ..romantic, casual, hip and happening, upscale, Vegan etc to make it so easy for us. There is a Directory at the Loft of things to see and do in the area (even Horse-riding). The best part (did I mention the BATH) ! ..was the Hampers (no cooking) and the massage therapist goes to the property..we went from the Bath to the massages. I think I was snoring (very romantic).

We can't say enough about this property..if you are wanting to catch up, eat good food, drink nice wine, laugh and enjoy! this is the place for you ..Thankyou JILLS LOFT LEURA ..see you again...we wish we could have stayed longer. Maybe next time for sure. Thanks Margie and Manager C
