We love this house. it is a perfect place to get away from the noise and heat of the city. It has many unusual features and has a very intimate quality missing from many modern houses. A easy walk to the town or the bush.

The space

Not many houses like this in the mountains. I think that it has a special charm to it.

Amazing house - much larger than we anticipated and the two bedrooms that had en-suites were almost self-contained suites with an extra kitchen sink and sofa in each! Plenty of space for all 6 of us. The sauna, spa baths and fireplaces were enjoyable, and there was plenty of firewood available. Central heating keeps this home feeling pretty cosy, and on those frosty mountain nights we didn't feel the cold. The book collection is phenomenal, even though it's not advertised, which was a pleasant surprise. A great weekend away. Paul was easy to get in touch with and very responsive to any questions I had.

Another great stay at Paul's house. Lovely warm house, centrally located and a pleasure to return to in the evening after a day of bush walking. We'll be back!

Quiet and comfortable, Mandalay is a lovely and quirky house which feels like home away from home. It was the perfect venue for our mid winter ''Xmas'' gathering. There are 2 bedrooms with ensuites, one with a separate bathroom and a loft that kids would love. The kitchen is well equiped for home catering. The location in the Blue Mountains is fantastic with easy access to fantastic walks and great food and coffee. Easy walking distance to Blackheath and a train trip to Katoomba or other mountain villages - or drive if you feel like it.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Mandalay. Paul was easy to communicate with and he provide clear and easy to follow instructions. Check was easy. We were a group of 6 adults and we found there was plenty of room in the house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and 2 lounge areas. This is the perfect mountains getaway house with everything you need.

Mandalay was everything we wanted for our week end in the blue mountains: heating in every room, fireplace, big rooms, fully equipped kitchen, a stone throw away from great bushwalk... very comfortable + Paul was super easy to deal with. Loved blackheath. Highly recommend!

Pauls house is huge, and great for a large group. Plenty of room to spread out. The interesting artifacts, and comfortable furniture, help create a peaceful ambience for a stay in the mountains. Well stocked kitchen helped to provide for a self catering holiday.

'Mandalay' is a charming house set in a nice quiet spot. There are few bushwalks nearby and a lot more on a short drive. The house has 3 spa baths which was awesome. We were happy to spot a few kangaroos nearby the house. Paul is a great host and was very responsive to our needs. It's a lovely house and we would definitely want to stay again next time we are in the blue mountains.
