“Good value”

A good place to stay as long as you aren’t bothered by mold. We stayed in the front cottage. It was well equipped and maintained. It is within a few blocks of some good supermarkets and a liquor store, as well as a municipal bus stop for going to and from Echo Point, Scenic World and nearby municipalities. There is also a hop on and off bus stop nearby. At the same time, it is sufficiently removed from the tourist areas of town to be peaceful. A bonus is that the cottage is right opposite a sizeable park with some lovely natural areas and interpretive signs depicting the evolving relationship between aboriginals and European settlers.

We stayed for 4 nights during first visit to Blue Mountains. The cottage was easy to find and. Dry nicely presented. It had all the essential for self catering, was very clean and cosy. Easy to get to local supermarket and to echo Point and other nearby attractions. Would recommend this place to stay

Steve (property owner) was very prompt to answer all my queries and gave plenty of information which was great.

We stayed in the back cottage which was a two bedroom, one bathroom place. It was nice and cosy and had most of the things we needed. Bathroom has been recently renovated and looks good. The rest of the cottage is older but it's tidy. The outdoor deck is good for BBQs and relaxing with privacy.

This place was one of the cheapest I found and it was definitely worth it!

“We were impressed with the cottage and its great location”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We were delighted with the cottage. It was perfect for our needs.
Easy access to all the attractions that the Blue Mountains can offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay. We enjoyed seating on the back decking, where we watched and listened to the parrots and kookaburras.
As we were travelling for 4 weeks, access to a washing machine would have been convenient.

Will try this place again better than the motels and location is superb. Will be better with aircon. They give me lots of blankets and pillows. Full kitchen facilities. Make holiday even better, I like it.

“Comfortable cottage close to Katoomba high street and scenic attractions.”
Reviewed 22 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This cottage is a short walk to the main street of Katoomba, shops and restaurants and a short drive to the Three Sisters, Scenic World and all that the amazing Blue Mountains have to offer. There was plenty of room for the two of us, the place was clean and equipped with an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge plus a BBQ outside. Bathroom was fine, with towels provided. Off street parking. The cottage is located in an area called 'the Gully' which has an interesting indigenous history which you can find out about at the Katoomba cultural centre just off the main street. Certainly beats any motel stay.

“Just what we needed”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This place is perfect for 2 people, but plenty of room for people to come and spend time having lunch/dinner etc. Close to park (for kids to run around), laundry facilities handy when travelling, only gripe would be providing (or having the option to provide) soap, detergent etc. We flew in and hired a car for a couple of days, luckily we had someone to off load the excess soap and food etc when we left.

Other than that had everything we needed for 3 nights, bed was comfy, heater worked well for the time of the year we were there (not sure how things would be in a hot summer), kitchen was stocked with all the necesary utensils, BBQ outside, washer and dryer, and free WIFI (great for updating Facebook with all your daily photos).

Handy to shops and attractions and will book again next year.
