“A great base in the Blue Mountains”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Owls Cottage is a characterful, well equipped cottage in a neat and private garden, a very relaxing place to stay if you are visiting the Blue Mountains. It's in a quiet street with no traffic noise yet convenient to Katoomba town centre and the Highway which gives access to the many interesting places to visit in this historic area. There is plenty of information in the cottage about places to visit and the wide variety of bushwalks in the area.

“Beautiful, cozy cottage.”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We were met by Val, made to feel very welcome. Such a pretty cottage, lovely front and back garden with patio area. Very clean and comfortable. A food welcome pack was provided, as well as a loan of a packing permit, for the nearby viewing point for the Three Sisters site. Our stay was a very relaxing time in a picturesque part of the Blue mountains. I highly recommend this cottage.

“Beautiful cottage for a fantastic holiday”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My daughter and I have stayed in this cottage, once in summer and once in winter - both times were wonderful. The cottage has everything you would need for a comfortable holiday and it is a stand alone house in a very quiet area of Katoomba. The garden of the cottage is absolutely magnificent and children would have a wonderful time exploring it. The cottage has everything you would need. We have recently been there and it snowed heavily one night - magical. The owners, Val and Kevin are very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the cottage at the end of January 2015 when the weather wasn't very hospitable.
The cottage was very comfortable, and clean, with a load of toys provided by Val the owner, upon hearing we were travelling with our young son, Theo.
Welcoming provisions and a parking permit for the Three Sisters were an added touch of hospitality.
The cottage was equipped with everything we needed, with beautiful gardens - a real home from home.
