Come visit me in my charming and very cosy 3 bedroom home. I provide full customised service, to meet your individual needs. If you are looking for a totally relaxing break, let me look after you. My Australian Ranch style house is set on a peaceful 1/2 acre with a soothing, running creek. Once you cross my bridge, you have entered into a private bush setting, with landscaped gardens and full wrap around verandas. Now you have the chance to experience living in a Blue Mountains tranquil bush setting, yet you are only minutes from the Katoomba town centre. A short 10-15 minute stroll takes you into the Katoomba shops and cafes with a hill or two! Or I can drop you there by car. I can accommodate 2-4 people, be they family, couples or friends. Light continental breakfast provided. Your pet is also welcome pending prior discussion.

Either two couples, 4 friends or families can use both rooms and share the large bathroom. I DO NOT let the two rooms to different groups. This area is privately sectioned off with a Japanese door, living area (with functioning gas log fireplace) separating my end of the house. With beautifully warm central heating throughout. The 100sqm of full wrap around verandas allows you the option to eat outdoors, lounge on one of 3 sofas placed strategically around the house (follow the sun, or avoid it) , or just admire the amazing bird life in my vast garden. The Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos (drink from my bird bath) Pink and Grey Galahs, Kookaburras and King Parrots love to feed on my veranda. You can hear my trickling creek 24/7, a very peaceful way to fall asleep. Free Wi Fi available. A large selection of DVD's for your use. Foxtel Television and Telstra TV available.

I always looked on as a child, legs swinging off the kitchen bench, whilst my German mother cooked for her Greek/Austrian husband and us, her Australian children! Inevitably I love to cook a plethora of dishes, and do so whilst sipping on a glass of wine. I have enjoyed the lifestyle of London for 4 years, Budapest for 10 years, and Tignes for a ski season. I first used Airbnb as a guest, but now also an Airbnb Host, who also loves to travel! I guess that means I love meeting people!!
