‘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 space

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.

Guest access

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).

This is a very peaceful, calming space in a beautiful location. Everything is of great quality and thoughtfully provided; deep bath, comfy mattress, lovely bedding, soft towels, nice coffee, everything you need in the kitchen, including sharp knives. We travelled with a baby and this space worked very well for us, as the home cinema experience is just perfect for those who can't really go out at night anyway.

The Shed has everything you need for a super relaxing peaceful time in the blue mountains. Michael was an excellent host, couldn’t recommend this place more highly!

This is a great place for a weekend away. Spacious, comfortable and well designed. I loved being able to light a fire as it was a wet and misty weekend.

The Shed is a special romantic getaway just outside of Leura. The bath was beautiful and the projector was a blessing! Couldn't have wished for a better place to spend my partners birthday. The dogs are adorable, and Michael was a fantastically hospitable and welcoming host. Thank you!

Can highly recommend the Shed, beautiful scenic location and only a few minutes drive to all the main attractions. The shed was fitted out very nicely and with the novelty of a bath, projector and fire. Perfect for a country escape.

Private, quiet, safe. All aspects of stay were looked after thoroughly. The shed is stylish, cosy and neat. Fireplace was the cherry. Michael was a great host - showed us in and then left us in peace. Highly recommend
