Our Katoomba Flat “a far cry from the chintzy style you might expect in the Blue Mountains" Sydney Morning Herald Weekends Away Nov 13 2010.
Our Katoomba Flat is a recently restored 1950s holiday flat in a pretty garden setting. It is only one block from the famous 3 Sisters at Echo Point. You can walk there to watch sunset over the Jamison Valley when all the tourists have left for the day. Several of the Blue Mountains' most famous bush walks can be accessed from the end of the street and all the resturants, cafes and bric a brac shops of Katoomba and Leura are also very close.
The flat faces directly north so sun fills the space during the day. A beautiful 'Eco- Smart' open fire keeps it cosy at night and there are heaters in both bedrooms. There is a queen sized bed in the main bedroom and a double bed in the second bedroom. A substantial roll-away single bed can also be used in any of the rooms. All mattresses and linen are new and good quality. Linen and towels are supplied
What makes the flat unique are the beautiful Mid-20th Century furniture and fittings including 1950s and 1960s pieces from Australia and Denmark. The floors are polished hardwood with scattered hides and flokati rugs. The original 1950s bathroom and kitchen have been sensitively restored and for those who like to cook the kitchen is very well equipped.
There are two flat screen TVs (lounge and 2nd bedroom) with video/ CD/ DVD players, movies, games and books for when entertainment tastes differ. There is also a turntable and an extensive collection of LPs to allow music enthusiasts to enjoy the sound of vinyl.
We had a great stay! Even though the weather was gloomy and we didn't get to do any hiking or see any mountains, we really enjoyed our time in Tracey's flat. It's perfectly cosy with lots of entertainment - we loved the vinyl collection! Would love to head back in hopes of better weather next time around!

We had a great stay at this little cottage house and loved the interior design! It's very well located around the corner from Echo Point and the nearby walks; it's also not far from the Supermarket and the quaint little Leura village. Thanks again for a great stay!
My husband and I stayed in Tracey's beautiful flat in the Blue Mountains for 4 days over Christmas. We can't say enough good things about it! From the peaceful location, but within walking distance to the Three Sisters, to the clean and comfortable flat, this accommodation made our stay in the mountains. We loved the movie and record collection and were impressed by the well equipped kitchen. The master bed was super comfy and all the linen crisp and clean. Thank you Tracey for such a wonderful experience in the Blue Mountains!
Tracey's flat was a wonderful, comfortable oasis for me to relax in the Blue Mountains - wonderfully close to the walks of Echo Point.
It's a little bit of a walk to get over to the main Katoomba shops, but that just made me plan a little more than normal and enjoy the quiet all the more. Tracey provided plenty of detail on how to find the place and use the facilities, and I'd love to come back and stay there again some day.
Tracey's flat was even better that I had pictured. It has a lovely feel to it which made relaxing a very easy thing to do, the kitchen was so well set up that my plan to cook up an elaborate feast was seamless, and unlike some of the other Mountain places I've stayed, it was easy to heat up and make cosy. Tracey was a great host and repeatedly responded promptly to my messages and requests. Top quality accommodation and service with style a homely touch to boot!
Tracey's place was great. Very well equipped, with everything you would need. Lovely furniture and amazing record collection!
A lovely apartment in a great location. We loved the retro furniture, record collection and cosy rugs. Perfect for a relaxing weekend in the mountains.
Very clean, well cared for and well equipped. Decor is excellent. Comfortable beds, luxurious bedding. Host provides a range of entertainment material. Since we visited in July, Katoomba was very cold but host provides heaters and the eco smart fireplace which met our needs for warmth. Would recommend the premises to others.
Great little place in a very convenient location. Beautiful reserve at the end of the street and 2 minute walk to Echo Point. Lovely, helpful hosts.
