Our house is great value for families and friends.
Modern, bright, four bedroomed, sunny cottage with large deck overlooking quiet leafy garden - often visited by parrots in the day and the mountain mist at night. An idyllic and peaceful location at the top of the Blue Mountains, close to bush walks, National Park-Evans Lookout, Blackheath village shops and station.
From the house you can visit local tourist favourites Blackheath, Katoomba, Leura, Wentworth Falls, Jenolan Caves and Bathurst.

The space

The house is located off Evans Lookout Road between Blackheath Golf Club and Evans Lookout.
This eco friendly house has solar panels on the roof and there are vegetables growing in the garden.
It is a comfortable, cosy, peaceful hipster house. Eclectically furnished for comfort and easy living. Perfect for relaxing, reading and as a base to explore the Blue Mountains in general. It would suit a couple, a family or a group of friends. We have wifi so you can stay connected and deal with work commitments whilst exploring the local area.

The interior of the house is decorated in neutral earthy tones.
The living room is open plan with 2 sofas. There is a cosy combustion log fire for warmth in winter. Perfect for relaxing and playing board games in the evening with friends or familly.

There is a tv, playstation 2, plenty of board games, books and dvds.
Also access to wifi.

We love to cook, so the kitchen is fully equipped for cooking after a long day exploring, if that is what you like to do. Alternatively there is a microwave to heat up food. There is also a large bookshelf stocked with recipe books for inspiration. The dining area flows from the kitchen into the lounge allowing guests to chat whilst preparing meals.

There are 4 bedrooms: bedroom 1 -queen bed, bedroom 2 -double bed, bedroom 3 -single bed, bedroom 4 -single bed.
(There is an option for a queen inflatable bed if required)

There is one bathroom with bath and shower. Separate wc.

The back deck is sheltered and sunny and overlooks the vegetable garden, a cubby house and fruit trees. There is a table, chairs and benches to seat 6-8 people. Relax with a novel from the bookshelf to the sounds of native birds.

The Blue Mountains is a World Heritage listed area comprising sandstone plateaux, escarpments and gorges littered with eucalyptus forest. The canyon here is the 2nd largest in the world (the Grand Canyon in the USA is the largest). A short distance down the road from the cottage is the spectacular Evans Head Lookout which gives visitors a fine view of the gorge.

Blackheath village a short drive or bus ride away has gift shops, cafes and restaurants. 5 minutes down the road the Hydro Majestic in Medlow Bath offers more magnificent views. Leura and Katoomba both well known towns in the mountains are also close by for shopping expeditions and walking.

Sandra's place was perfectly appointed and the right size for our family of 4. The kids had plenty of room to romp around and the location of the property was excellent. We had everything we needed! Thank you, Sandra - we had a great time and will definitely visit again.

This pleasant four bedroom house is located in a quiet street 3km from Blackheath township. It was clean, had large windows looking onto the garden, and had a great wood heater with good supplies of wood. We loved it. Only thing it didn't have was a laundry.

Response from Sandra:
Thx for the review Andrew. As you were staying for 1 night I am surprised you needed a laundry. We have everything most people require for short term stays. We do not list a laundry. We do supply a dishwasher as it is generally more useful than a washing machine for our guests.
