We loved every minute!Jane B - 24th November 2023
The location was really beautiful, peaceful, spacious and luxurious. All our needs were met and more!
Perfect location!Marion Grunert - 30th October 2023
The property was super comfortable and clean. Some of the best walks are virtually right outside the property and it’s practically perfect for dog walks/hikes. Town is relatively close, but it’s also nice to just get takeaway and enjoy the upstairs area as the last rays of light disappear over the beautiful view. The bed was amazingly comfortable also, we had the best sleeps.
Had a really great stay at this propertyGary Eisner - 2nd October 2023
We are a family of 4 plus a large dog and there was plenty of space for all. The house is really well stocked, you don't need to bring anything except for dog bowls and food (human and canine). The views are really nice too. The backyard is fully fenced and is spacious too. There is a dog friendly walk 100m from the property too (as long as you don't mind a bit of a descent followed by an ascent. Overall, this is great pet friendly stay that is close to Katoomba and really quiet. Highly recommend
We loved it so much, we’re already talking about a return visitMichelle Clough - 29th May 2023
This property is superb! Two nights just wasn’t enough! Lovely bedrooms, bathrooms, lounge rooms, kitchen and dining rooms. So much packed into one house. The outlook is stunning; the area is stunning, and the location was perfect for everything we wanted to do including the Jenolan Caves, and abseiling at Katoomba. A fantastic BBQ and cooking facilities make it an overall perfect experience, but there’s also superb dining options in close proximity. We asked for a couple of considerations, and the generosity of the host was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, and will definitely be back.
Wish we stayed longerReece Hepi - 28th May 2023
