We never met Hilary personally but make sure to get in touch with her before you self check-in for ease of finding the place & getting into the house. The place was cozy, clean & very well equipped with a functional kitchen, modern bathroom & central heating. The house itself is close to the town center (Coles, Woolies, Aldi & cafes), Katoomba train station & tourist sights of Blue Mountains. It was a very relaxing stay & would definitely stay here again for future visits. Highly recommended!

Actual home is nicer than pictures show- a lovely surprise. It was tidy and comfortable for 4. Kitchen well equipped. While I was not able to contact host prior and during check in (please contact host well before your stay to confirm entry directions) - this was later resolved and host granted a late check out. Again, a lovely stay - I would return.

Good place in Katoomba. Hilary was easy to communicate with. Check-in is easy. The place is accurate to the photos and description.

We very much enjoyed our night at Hilary's cottage. Travelling with 2 young children, we appreciated the well equipped kitchen and space to relax. Most importantly the cottage was easy to heat and we were cosy despite the cold. It was clean and tidy and full of character. I would thoroughly recommend if looking for a rustic hideaway!

Great location, ideal for our base whilst visiting the blue mountains. The house was very nice in a quiet location. The gardens were very attractive, even in the middle of winter. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Katoomba.
