About this listing

My 100yr original weatherboard cottage is the perfect place to escape and recharge. It's right in the middle of Katoomba but you'll feel in your own little world. Features include a 'grandma' kitchen and plenty of reading spots.

Guest access

Library with interesting range of books
Large screen tv (though no broadcast - only for DVDs)
Comprehensive DVD collection for those quiet nights recovering from bushwalks

Interaction with guests

I generally will meet you at key exchange and give you a tour of the place. After that, the house is all yours.

Other things to note

My neighbours cat likes to come and visit - he is super friendly and I really enjoy him popping by. If you don't like cats you can close the cat flap.

The perfect escape for a weekend away in Katoomba. Quiet neighbourhood. Only $6 taxi ride into town centre. Fireplace and a claw foot bathtub makes for a relaxing weekend in the cottage. You don't need to bring anything but yourself, the cottage has DVDs, books, games, and a great selection of teas. Would definitely visit again.

The house was absolutely lovely and I highly recommend staying there. It was cozy and in a great location. Mark was a great host and answered all my questions and had a great movie selection. I look forward to staying there again.

Marks place was the perfect city escape for us. Very homely with plenty of space and only 10 min walk to the main strip in town. Mark was very quick to respond and has some great recommendations for the area.

The place is as described and well located to access town and many lovely walks. After a long walk, it was very nice to sit in the sun room and have tea, read a book and listen to birds. Mark was responsive. Would stay here again if the opportunity arose.

This place is a gem! A very comfortable stay and the perfect location from which to enjoy the natural splendour of the Blue Mountains. Mark was a great host, and was kind enough to offer some very helpful recommendations for local restaurants and sights. The apartment was very well appointed; the extensive collection of DVDs was great for those nights after a day of bush walking. I wish we could visit Mark's place every summer!

Australian / British guy - easy going, likes to explore new places. I like to walk around a city for a day to get to know it. When traveling like to experience both quiet times and exciting times. Just as happy to sit in a cafe and read half of the day away as to go out for a drink at night.
