Contemporary studio cabin with bush outlook tucked away in a no through road. It has all the comfortable amenities you need after a day of exploring the amazing world heritage Blue Mountains area. Under 10 minutes drive to the famous three sisters, main shops and restaurants of Katoomba and quaint village of Leura. Easy driving distance to all the major walks and sights such as Wentworth Falls, Leura Cascades, Scenic World etc. Kitchenette, private toilet/shower and parking on site.
The property backs national park down a gentle valley. We are set down an 80 metre long concreted driveway amongst the beautiful hanging coral ferns that house the endangered Blue Mountains Skink (lizard)
The studio cabin is separate from the main house which we, as the hosts live in. The entrance to the studio is separated and private from the main house. It is a $12-$15 cab ride from the Katoomba train station. There is a bus that comes about once every hour from the station. Contact us for timetables if you know what train you are getting in. The property has mobile reception for Telstra mobile phones (and its subsidiaries). All other services are available up the driveway (about 80 metres) onto Glen Rd itself. Internet Wi-Fi is available.
No smoking inside please but outside is fine.
Guests have full private access to the back area of the cabin that looks out to a bush block where you can enjoy the afternoon sunshine with a cup of tea or glass of wine. Parking is to the side / front of the cabin.
Kitchenette has electric cooktop (plug into wall socket), and electric oven (also plug in) and grill. Toaster, kettle and basic tea / coffee and sugar is available as with salt/pepper and oil for cooking. (There is a corner store 2 minutes drive away). Bar fridge, microwave and all normal utensils and cutlery etc are provided.
Interaction with guests
We encourage privacy for guests. However my husband and I are always available by phone (or in person if we are home), for any questions and problem solving. We may not always be home as we travel often for work overnight. There is a guestbook that lists our favourite restaurants, take away menus and relevant phone numbers for emergencies, national parks centres and main tourist attractions.
Other things to note
Please note as stated before, we have Telstra (and its subsidiaries) mobile reception on the property. All other mobile services are available if you walk up the 80 metre driveway and onto Glen Rd itself and perhaps another 20 metres.
Being in a small valley there are NO TV channels available here. We have a selection of DVDs for you to choose from. Or there is a local DVD shop in Katoomba plus a self serve DVD hire booth at Coles (details will be in the guest book)
Internet: we have wifi but cant guarantee super fast speeds for things like high res streaming. North katoomba has bad copper wires and when traffic is high it slows down. And it cuts out when it rains. But it is more than adequate for surfing, and youtube and iview is usually fine. The password and wireless name is in the guestbook.
* please list full names of all guests when you book (send me a PM)
* Smoking is permitted outside only please
* check out by 10am but if there are no bookings after you can stay longer. This can be negotiated the day before check out.
* please don't leave the internal lights nor the heater on when not in cabin for safety reasons
* please don't leave the bathroom light/fan on when not in use to avoid motor burn out
I have been living with my husband (and cat) in Katoomba Blue Mountains for over 13 years and don't ever intend to leave. We travel often for work domestically and internationally but always love coming home. We enjoy going to live gigs, the theatre and popcorn nights with sci-fi films.
