A truly unique Art Deco experience close to the shops and village in beautiful Leura
There are two rooms with queen size beds, the larger one facing the street (Great Western Hwy) the smaller one is a bit quieter with a view of the pond in the back yard. There is another street view room with two single beds.
The house is less than 5 minutes walk from Leura village, station & bus stop, Marsden Lodge was built in the 1930s in the Streamline Moderne/Art Deco Style. It has recently been sympathetically renovated to reflect the era with a few modern touches for extra comfort.
Large lounge room with real log fire, HD TV with media player.
Use of large sunny eat-in kitchen with Espresso coffee machine.
Original Art Deco bathroom with separate shower, deep bath.
Laundry with indoor and outdoor drying.
Guests have full access to the kitchen, lounge room, foyer, laundry and yard. Please note, the flat has one bathroom and one toilet only.
Interaction with Guests
We have moved away from Leura but I am always available via phone or email to help make your stay more comfortable. My friend Winston lives in our old place, the flat downstairs, he works but he's always happy to help sort out any issues you may have when he is home.
Great scenery, bushwalking, restaurants and unique shops and galleries. Go to Woolworths Supermarket for supplies, it is open from 7am-10pm 7 days a week.
The train station and bus stop is less than 5 minutes walk from the house.
Other Things to Note
Bring your own wood/kindling for the fire and pods for the coffee machine (available at Woolworths)
You can use any food you find in the cupboards.
Smoking is okay in the foyer or outside.
Pets are allowed but not on furniture and you must clean up after them.

Nice flat & great decor. Great location- right off the Western Hwy & a 5 min drive to the Three Sisters & Scenic World. Only downside is a singular bathroom/toilet. Great stay otherwise.
Leny has a nice apartment and it would have been a great stay for our visitors, but due to a couple of little things I cannot give this listing a five star rating. Beautiful apartment wasn't 100% ready for the arrival of our guests and the outdoor territory was very unkempt. It might not be important if you're staying over the weekend but as our guests were staying for a few weeks, it would have been nice if the back yard was looked after.
Leny was a fantastic host (very quick to respond to queries) and she has created an amazing Art Deco apartment! My four friends and I were all very comfortable there. We really enjoyed the spaciousness and the well equipped kitchen!
-Had to climb 2 flights of stairs to get to apartment
-Dusty and spiderwebs behind the bed frames
-Electricity tripped a few times each night and hence, had no heater for all 3 nights.
-Limited hot water supply. Ran out of hot water after a few people bathed.

My sister Ned and I brought a beautiful art deco duplex back to its former glory in Leura and now we've moved to Campbell Town in Tasmania, this time it is art nouveau/art and crafts. I drive people mad constantly searching for our next project/adventure and find it very hard to settle down. We are working towards accepting airbnb guests in our house here in Tassie but for the moment it is just Leura. We spent over 3 years in Japan and two Summers in Ireland and twenty years ago we backpacked and hitch hiked around Asia and Europe with my infant son, Akira, who is now 25yo and also an airbnb host in West End in Brisbane. These experiences have made a huge impact on my life.
I believe that we should look after the planet and that Australia is plenty big enough to welcome a lot more people from countries less fortunate than ours.
