About this listing

Stylish 3 bedroom cottage house surrounded by lush gardens, located in a lovely quiet street. 5 min drive to Katoomba or Leura town centres, train stations, the Three Sisters. Walking distance from stunning views of the Megalong Valley. A lovely place for a relaxing family holiday.

The space

A family friendly mountains retreat. So many local attractions nearby, cafes, restaurants, day spas, etc. Or just relax at the house and read a book, watch movies on the large screen smart TV, play board games or stroll through the garden.
There is gas heating in the living area and column heaters in each bedroom. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and ensuite bathroom, the "pineapple" room also has a queen size bed, and the "yellow" room has a single size day bed that pulls out to make a king size bed if needed. The main bathroom has a huge bathtub to relax in after a hike. There are 2 toilets and 2 showers.
The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans and utensils because we love to cook! There are basic supplies like salt/pepper, cooking oil, cling film, tea, coffee, etc. If you finish something essential, please replace for the next guests. There are also lots of other non-perishable items that have been left in the cupboards for your use. There is a gas bbq out the back and a covered area by the water fountain.
The laundry has a full size washer and dryer. The iron and board are also kept in the laundry. The living space will comfortably accommodate 4 adults but may be a little crowded for 6. However if you are planning to be outdoors exploring for your time in the Blue Mountains, this may not matter to you. All linen and towels are provided. Please include kids who require beds in the number of guests in the booking so we can prepare the rooms according to your needs.
2 nights minimum stay. (Trust me: you really need at least 3 nights to even begin exploring the beautiful scenery!)
***Min 3 nights preferred for school holidays and long weekends***
***Discounts for midweek bookings or more than 3 night stays. Please do an enquiry so I can adjust the price. If you auto book, I can't change the price.***

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole property. Please respect locked cupboards for our personal things and cleaning supplies. We love to stay there in our spare time too!

Interaction with guests

We don't live in Katoomba so communication is best via Airbnb messenger. I have collected a whole bunch of brochures and tourist info booklets with ideas for things to do while in the Blue Mountains that you'll find in the house. I've also set up an Instagram account called grahamslea.katoomba with pics of places we've visited in the area. Feel free to tag us in your pics if you find greats places to see.
When checking in, there is a key safe at the property so it's a self check in process. (You will be given details on how to access after booking.)

Other things to note

Baby bath and highchair provided free of charge. BYO porta-cot and baby bedding.

Good location to the scenic world and the town centre. Clean and big enough for a family. Love the big bed where my 3 kids can sleep together. They love it ! The electric heater helps very much in this cold weather.

Grahamslea Katoomba is a great place to stay for small families or groups. The place is well furnished and clean which was my main concern and arriving at the place did not disappoint one bit. Kitchen well equipped with all necessities with even a spacious backyard bbq area. Will highly recommend the place to anyone looking to visit the area.

Hi there!
My husband, daughter and I live in Sydney but spend our free time in Katoomba at Grahamslea. We love just spending time at the house and my husband loves cooking so we have set up the house to be perfect for families that love food and quality time together.
We are very private people who like peaceful time to relax when we travel. Grahamslea is in a quiet street, surrounded by lovely gardens so we think it's the prefect escape from the city.
