Set on 9 acres of gardens and walkways, you can enjoy the magnificent Dantosa Blue Mountains Retreat for a fraction of the cost. Dantosa is perfect for family gatherings, relaxing or exploring the Mountains. Attractive rates available for weekdays.
Dantosa provides you with a secluded 9 acre estate with numerous walking paths, private gardens, it's own private lake, a tennis court, and tonnes of fresh air. It is 5 minutes from the the famous Blue Mountains - a World Heritage National Park.
Originally a goat farm, the property has a 30-year-old established Blue Mountains garden and accommodation in two buildings - Dantosa House and adjacent Dantosa Cottage.
Dantosa Cottage was the original farmhouse and sleeps up to 7 people in 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and 3 singles). It also has views over the gardens and lake.

At Dantosa you will enjoy magnificent grounds set apart from the rest the world but with access to all the conveniences offered by the villages of Leura and Katoomba. As one guest put it, “you live in a beautiful oasis, and yet you are only minutes away from restaurants, shops and the national park.” Enjoy a game of tennis, canoeing on the lake, a game of boules or a stroll in the beautiful gardens. After a day’s bushwalking, come back to the cosy comfort of Dantosa cottage which is set in in acreage and complete with its own lake . Enjoy the garden’s distinct four seasons: fields of daffodils in the spring, a 100m wall of multi-coloured hydrangeas in the summer, the remarkable fall colours and the early morning frosts in winter.

I live in Singapore. My family has a spectacular property located in the Blue Mountains, Australia. It is snuggled right in the heart of a leading World Heritage Site. Most people who visit Sydney spend time in the Blue Mountains. If you're looking for a luxury property with great amenities, and loads of space to walk around, then Dantosa Mountain Retreat is ideal for you, your family and friends. Dantosa is the first of my family's boutique home-away-from-home stays. We look forward to welcoming you. Derek
