Great location! Great home for a family getaway.Catherine - 6th August 2023
We especially loved the fireplace and the garden was a beautiful place to enjoy the Autumn sunshine ☀️
Great little cottage not far from the centre of LeuraDavid - 27th July 2023
Great garden and space for kids.'
Garden Cottage was a great place to stay.Lara - 20th June 2023
It really is very spacious and the photographs dont do it justice. Homely and cosy and equipped with everything that you could need. Priced really well and convenient for Leura (although a bit of walk). A good sized garden which was great for the kids and the people living behind have chickens that the kids just loved as you can get right up close to them from Garden Cottage. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend Garden Cottage and will be doing just that to our friends and family. We will definitely be back.
We had a lovely relaxing time and were very impressed with Garden Cottage.Sabena - 13th April 2023
The house is very well equipped and was absolutely spotless. The garden is superb in it's natural beauty and the dappled light through the trees in the backyard in the late afternoon is incredibly beautiful. In the morning the sun shines on the front verandah and it is the perfect place to enjoy that first cup of the day! We loved that when the lights are turned off for the night, the total blackness envelopes you and we all had peaceful sleep with no street lights or traffic noise! The house feels solid and safe which for women is an important aspect. Thank you, again, for your great service. We look forward to visiting The Blue Mountains again in the not too distant future and you will most certainly be our first choice of accommodation provider. Kind regards
Thank you so much we loved the cottageKylie - 1st March 2023

Everything was as expected for this style of houseBarry - 1st July 2022
The house warmed up pretty quick with the fire., but you need to bring your own wood. You have the added bonus of a great trendy café three doors down across the road which is a best kept secret. I liked the location and easy access up to town and into Katoomba. Whilst it may be a bit of a walk if you wanted too, being out of the weekend crowds and having the space in the quiet street added to the experience and highlighted the tranquillity of the area. Personally I loved it, family didn't complain and the girls loved exploring the back yard
