This was our second stay at Piccolo and definitely not our last! The place, location and price is just perfect for a winter mountains weekend away - with the added bonus of bringing our pup!

Highly recommended. This is not just a place to stay, it's a piece of Blue Mountain's history, lovingly maintained by the owners. Being able to stay in places like this is what I love about Airbnb.

Great location if you have a car - only a few minutes either way to Katoomba or Leura shops. Peaceful and private with elevated outlook over bushland - but not too secluded to feel safe at night even if you were alone there. very comfortable bed and good tv with netflix and also wifi worked well. charming cottage we could quickly feel at home in - miner's cottage that is pretty easy to keep warm in winter and very lovingly cared for.

Really enjoyed our stay at Piccolo. My basset loved roaming around the property and sitting by the toasty open fire. Great communication from Michael.

Piccolo is a comfortable and cosy cottage with lots of charm and character. It is well fitted out with lovely decor, a great gas heater, super comfy bed and a lovely verandah complete with rocking chairs to soak in the sunrise. It's very pet friendly with a secure yard and in house dog accessories in case you forget to bring your own (bowl etc). It has everything you need.

We spend 10 years living in Bondi and work in Sydney because The Blue Mountains were just a bit far to commute from every day. But we finally made to move to permanently live in the Blue Mountains.

Since I grew up in countryside England I need the escape from the city.
We saw Piccolo about 7 years ago, both Holly and I knew we needed to buy it to rest and relax from the pressure of city live.

I'm sure there are many of you that feel the same and we hope you enjoy our little mountain getaway.
