‘The Shed’ is a private, light-filled self-contained studio in Leura. Enjoy the slow-combustion fire, a long soak in the claw foot bath, a selection of movies on a 3 metre pull-down screen and a beautiful outlook onto garden, orchard trees and bushland.
The Shed is a funky self-contained studio renovated with recycled materials. It's set back in the garden of a lush 1.4 acre property with orchard trees, near bushland. Suitable for up to two guests, enjoy the slow combustion fire, spacious light-filled living, a soak in the claw foot tub and DVD movies on the pull-down three-metre screen. It's very well insulated and cosy in winter, moderate in summer. Guests say they feel so rejuvenated and creative when they stay in The Shed.
You can enjoy walks in our garden and on nearby tracks, or just relax in privacy and peace. The Shed is near to both Leura and Katoomba villages (a longer walk or very short drive) where there are ample dining options and local wares.
Interaction with guests
I live in the main house on the property so will be nearby but we will not bother you. The Shed is private and you can enter and exit down the driveway and park right outside. I have lovely dogs but will keep them away during your stay (unless you would like it otherwise).
Your privacy is valued and it will be respected; I trust that you'll feel the same way.
Smoking in The Shed is not allowed; if you smoke outside, please dispose of your butts thoughtfully.
Please note that it's not safe to dry towels or anything else or heat or cook on top of the slow combustion fire.
Linen and towels are supplied and, in honor of the bath, some bath salts infused with relaxing essential oils.
There are basic ingredients such as olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar, and we include tea bags and a small quantity of full cream milk to get you started.
Please wash the dishes before you leave.
Thankyou for being mindful of volume, especially if playing or listening to music or watching movies in the evening.
