Unfortunately Grace Cottage is not available for parties. Although the house is professionally cleaned it is expected that guests leave the property as they found it.
Any damages to the property will be charged to the guest - the property is inspected after each visit. No smoking is allowed at the Cottage and sorry, but no pets.
Among my many passions in life, spending time in the beautiful Blue Mountains and being able to provide a lovely home away from home for my guests to enjoy, is top of the list. This vast and magical region is the only one of its kind on earth and despite having visited here since childhood there is always something new to discover. Health and fitness is another passion, and the many picturesque hikes and walks suit me perfectly as does the dedicated exercise studio at Grace Cottage. Guests who want to maintain their fitness regimes whilst on holidays be it, Yoga, Pilates or stretching or just time out for Meditation are well catered for.
Communication is important to me, I like to be upfront about everything that is being offered at Grace Cottage and encourage my guests to call/text/email me with any questions they may have before and during their stay. Other passions include reading, music, movies, studying languages and cooking delicious organic meals with fresh produce from the garden. Favourite holiday destination (other than the Blue Mountains of course) is Hawaii. My motto? Maintaining your health and fitness can be expensive, but getting seriously ill isn't cheap either!
