This cottage is in a great location for those are want to explore the Leura, Katoomba and the upper Blue mountains area. It is easy walking distance to Leura shops and restaurants. The cottage easily caters for 6 adults and has a nice layout. The location is very picturesque and the bush facing balcony is a great place to have breakfast. It would be a nce place to stay summer or winter.

Jeff's house is a comfortable place to stay when visiting the Blue Mountains. It is situated in between Leura and Katoomba, just off the main dual carriageway that runs west from Sydney. We arrived by public transport. As detailed in the property's description, it is a 10 minute walk from the station. There are grocery shops, cafes and touristy outlets in Leura. All these can easily be reached on foot. Much of the tourist sites are situated in Katoomba, however. This is a longer walk and would be more challenging. If you are planning a tourist trip that focuses mostly on Katoomba, I'd recommend arriving by car. Jeff was a very pleasant and easy host to communicate with. And the house has a number of positive features. The view from the balcony is lovely. The house is quirkily decorated - a little random and kitsch for my taste, but it might appeal to others. The house is probably value for money. It is certainly cheaper than many other properties listed in Leura and Katoomba. But it is not a bargain. There are a few things that future bookers should be aware of. The house is quite close to the train line and there can be a fair bit of consequent noise. The trains seem to begin around 5am. This could be a challenge for light sleepers. Although clean, we felt the house could have been a little better prepared for our arrival. It gave the impression of having stood empty for some time. The yard and the balcony had not been swept. We stayed in Jeff's house during an unusually hot spell - early 30s. The house is not well equipped for dealing with heat. The central ceiling fan does not work. The replacement floor-standing fan was not as effective, we think. Some of the bug screens have rips and limit the ability to keep all the windows and doors open after dark. All in all, an OK stay. Not great, but not below standard either.
