Cosy single room in central Katoomba with a private (but tight!) entrance. Entire house is newly and stylishly renovated; 15 minutes walk from Katoomba station, 10 minutes walk to 3 Sisters, Scenic World, bush walks.
This room is actually the favourite of my 3 rooms to sleep in; I've papered the walls with Birch Tree wallpaper, hung a series of 4 box-shelves by Hem on the walls and fitted a honeycomb blind to the window to keep the light out & the warmth in.
There are 2 x reading lights, under-bed storage, and a super-effective & quiet Rinnai convection heater as well as a fan for the summer months.
And there's a really cool set of photographic prints on the wall called 'Bird Fancier' by Sydney artist Sarah Mosca.
Bedding consists of pure cotton sheets, woollen blankets, a plush mattress topper OR electric blanket, a choice of pillows and a woollen throw or wool doona for extra warmth.
Both doors are lockable and you're welcome to store your luggage or excess clothes either in my office or in the lockable wardrobe in the bigger bedroom if it's not being used. This is probably not the space to book if you like to travel with lots of hard-case luggage or trunks!
But I'm not gonna lie; this cosy room measures only 1.5 x 2.5m and is adjacent to the kitchen but it does have direct external access and a lovely view of the garden.
The shared bathroom has a brand new Reece bath tub and hand held shower. relax in a warm bubble bath after a day out, with dimmable lighting, and another Rinnai wall-mounted convection heater.
The adjacent kitchen is modern & practical with brand new appliance - fridge, dishwasher, gas stove & oven, microwave as well as a good selection of utensils & equipment. Perfect if you'd like to do a bit of cooking for yourself.
Living room is cosy yet comfortable, with a sofa bed, armchairs, Moroccan ottomans, cushions & throws, lots of art and a super-effective heater I call the Beast!
I've freshly painted the entire house and had a matt black floating bamboo floor laid throughout.
Guests interested in a long term stay (ie; 30 days and over) are more than welcome. If the dates you're interested in staying for are not available please contact me.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
This listing is for one of the 3 bedrooms in my full time home; 2 of them are listed on airbnb and I sleep in the 3rd. This room is at the front of the house and the other two are at the back.
You're also welcome to make use of the adjacent well-equipped kitchen free of charge.
I can also do your laundry for $9 per load, including line or tumble drying, or you're welcome to use my washer/dryer to do your own laundry for $5 per load (wash only) or $9 per load (wash & dry).
This is my home and you will be welcomed as a guest. I am more than happy to share my local insights into the best walks, shopping & eating options. I'm happy to hang out for a chat & a glass of wine or just as happy to retire to my room while you watch TV in the living room.
All bedroom & bathroom doors lock. Fire extinguisher in room, 2 x hard-wired smoke alarms in the living area (ie: outside the bedrooms) and a first aid kit are on hand.
This is a quiet house with quiet neighbours. This is definitely not a 'party' house or a house for people who like to make lots of noise or are very active at night. Most of us are in bed by 10pm and enjoy a good night's sleep, so we need to keep the noise down between 10pm & 6am.
But it's no problem if you're getting in late from an event or going out/ departing early but please do let me know in advance, preferably at the time of booking. This is my most suitable room for out of hours activity as it's at the front of the house and has direct access to outside.
This room & the common areas of my house are for the use of the booked guest only. Please let me know in advance if you want to have any visitors while you're here.
Please leave the bathroom as you found it.
Please leave the kitchen as you found it if you're cooking here. You can use the dishwasher or you may prefer to wash & dry your dishes by hand.
No smoking inside, outside, or within say 70m of the house.
No mobile phone calls outside, especially between 10pm & 6am.
