Holiday Rental House
Set with a backdrop to the Blue Mountains National Reserve and Minni HaHa Falls down the street, Fifth Ave Katoomba Retreat sits on a 1000 sqm block and is a relaxing space for 6 to 8 people where you will experience that 'ahhh' moment instantly. A five to ten minute drive to main tourist attractions and a peaceful aspect when you return from your Blue Mtns day trip. Or take a quick ride into town by public bus from the top of our street! Suitable for small groups and the perfect family accommodation with holiday house essentials and little luxuries – encouraging you to unwind so you focus on time together. It's not too big for couples either. On check out we entice you to sleep in to recharge your mind and body.

It's not too big for couples either. On check out we entice you to sleep in to recharge your mind and body. Take your time, soak in the view from the deck and breathe in fresh mountain air. The only exception to this is when we have back to back bookings where check out will be at 11am. We've put ourselves in our guests' shoes and thrive on creating an inviting holiday house that’s clean, spacious and “tested” by us. Owner operated and maintained means we check the little things – like dimmed nightlights that don't keep you awake or vacuuming under beds, cozy wraps to snuggle up with and a range of teas, Italian coffee and magazines to flick through – the perfect way to escape city stress and indulge in time out. You’ll feel that “ahh” moment again when you sink into our comfortable beds and you’ll probably have the best sleep you’ve had in awhile. It’s so quiet here, you may have to force yourself to go seek adventure. There’s certainly no shortage of things to do in this beautiful World Heritage Listed area of Australia – including our cooking classes! Whether you're visiting the Blue Mountains for school holidays with the family, Girls Pampering experience, bushwalking & Ultra Trail or any Special Event, let us know so we can personalise your stay with us.

Very homely and warm feel to this home. Big enough to entertain with friends and a cozy heater to warm the house up. Lovely beds and fresh sheets. Gorgeous.

While the location is picturesque and so much to see and do, it is equally as nice to stay in and enjoy a homely feel.

Thank you Jeannette, that's exactly how I feel when I'm there (wish I could actually live there!!) It's a great base to explore the area from, and a home to come back to afterwards. We look forward to accommodating you again.
