Description

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***

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.)

The neighbourhood

Our favourite place to go is Leura- it has great coffee shops and cafes and 2 homewares shops that we love (Inner Space and The Cats Meow) that pretty much decked out the interior of our house!
Everglades Garden is a beautiful spot to take a picnic on a sunny day.
High tea at the Hydro Majestic is a must. Request a table by the window if possible to get the best view of the escarpment.
Scenic World can be quite busy with tourists, but it is a great activity for families. They have a train ride down the mountain and a boardwalk on the forest floor.

Getting around

Katoomba is a 2 hour train ride from Sydney or approx 1.5 hour drive. Katoomba station is about 2 kms away from our house.
We have had guests stay before using public transport and walking however the best way to explore the area is by car as there are so many beautiful locations to see.
There is a Hertz car rental in Katoomba. Pre-booking is recommended.
There are many walking and hiking tracks, and the Hop on-Hop off tour bus goes right past the house!

Other things to note

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

Aimee's place in the blue mountains is wonderful. The three bedroom house was perfect for our family to stay for the Easter long weekend! Very big and functional kitchen, clean place, nice bathrooms, fast wi fi, Netflicks and Stan, Eco friendly products. Walking distance to three sisters and lots of little bush walks. 25 min walk, a few min drives to supermarkets, restaurants and cafes! Aimee was a great host, good communicator and added an extra value by leaving us Easter Eggs! We would recommend this place.

Thank you Aimee for hosting us! It was one of my best Airbnb stay. Located in a quiet and safe street. Easy to find using the GPS. Best if you have your own transport. Very near to all the known scenic spots in the Blue Mountains. Definitely a good place to stay in in terms of location. House was spotless! Clean and very well maintained. They even have some board games and DVDs in the house to keep you entertained! Kitchen is huge and very well equipped! The toilet is very well maintained and very clean! So fret not about that! Overall, it was a really great stay at Aimee's place! One of the highlight was to stay over at Aimee's place! Hopefully we can be back!

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.
