Holiday Rental House /
1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2
LUSH is a unique property. A fully renovated, heritage-listed home built in 1898 in one of Katoomba's best streets. It offers every modern luxury combined with 19th Century charm and 21st Century sustainability.

It's a private, luxury experience which is totally powered by the sun! Close to cafes, restaurants, galleries, transport and the Three Sisters.

LUSH is located in the heart of Katoomba's tourist area but offers a very peaceful, tranquil setting. Cafes, galleries and escarpment walks are all within five minutes walk of the house and it's just a short walk to the main town centre and about 25 minutes walk from the station, with a bus stop directly outside the front gate.

The re-opened footpath to the Three Sisters and down into the valley is a good enough reason to revisit this magic area--away from the crowds.

Thanks Jilea and Oi for making our stay with you so lovely. Our room was great with privacy enough not to know the rest of the house existed. It was lovely to sit on your back verandah chatting and having a drink. Your poached pears were brilliant. You were really welcoming and we loved the personal touches to the room.... more

I arrived at Jilea's just an hour before the start of an Aboriginal Corroboree that she had offered to take me to, but unfortunately I hadn't eaten for some time. But it was no problem, as she quickly whipped me up an omelette to tie me over. Such a considerate hostess! The rest of my stay was much the same--... more

Billy has been an absolutely delightful guest. His three day booking turned into three weeks and I've loved his company! more
