Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

You’ll love our place because of the quiet, the outdoor space and the light. Our place is good for couples and solo adventurers. We are on a tiny lane with bush across the road. Huge backyard with garden and deck. Character home 100 years old. Walking distance to both Katoomba and Leura villages, or a short 5 minute drive to either. Sit out on the deck at night and watch the stars.

We really enjoyed our time at James' place. It had a cosy relaxed vibe and felt like a home away from home. A short drive to the Leura shops but secluded in a cute laneway. Highly recommend it!

A charming, well laid out little cottage, in a very pretty area. Well suited as a base for day hiking, or as a romantic getaway.

We had an amazing stay :) The house is indeed on a quiet lane, and is far enough away from the main streets not to hear them, but close enough that you can easily walk to the cafes & restaurants (15/20 mins). The house is lovely, cosy with everything you could need. The garden…

James' house was perfect for a weekend getaway. The kitchen was fully equipped. The house was pretty spacious and was cozy. James was helpful and gave detailed explanations and great tips. I would definitely come back for another holiday.
