I am happy to answer any general or specific questions for information related to your specific accommodation needs. Please make these clear when making your initial enquiry and prior to confirming a reservation
To assist new users I have included the following important information.
It's helpful to have a completed profile with AirBnb. This is because many hosts won't approve reservation requests without some level of AirBnb verified ID. A verified ID, will help you to get a quicker response to your reservation request to Wombat’s and other AirBnb accommodation.
Once confirmed with me, your booking remains secure.
Please note, during pre-approval, accommodation remains available to other enquirers. Your accommodation is secured when a reservation request is completed by both parties.
At present bookings for periods of 28+ days cannot be done using the Airbnb app; you will need a computer or similar device.
The accommodation in this listing is "Wombat's Studio".
Attached to the main building, but with its own entrance; there are four steps to the separate verandah which provides access to "Wombat's Studio" studio.
Transport links are good; Glenbrook is one of the first stops in the Blue Mountains via the M4, or the Mt Victoria rail-line from Sydney. Using either car or train, it's an hour from Sydney.
Your accommodation is 2 minutes’ walk from Glenbrook Railway Station.
If "Wombat's Studio" is unavailable, sometimes the guest room within the main house is available. :ie. "Wombats Village"
Additionally, "Wildwood@Glenbrook" is a seasonal listing which is occasionally available during high demand, it is in the property next door with my neighbour. At the present time "Wildwood@Glenbrook" remains unavailable unless required for overflow guests.
Interaction with Guests
I am an AirBnb host who lives in the adjacent accommodation onsite, so I am easy to contact if you need me or have any travel questions or queries about facilities in the accommodation.
The contact I have with guests is very dependent on my guests; it's your vacation/visit... after reception and room guidance, your privacy and enjoyment is important to me.
Set in the Lower Blue Mountains, it's actually a gem of a place, centrally located for so many different experiences and features of this area, its natural beauty and peaceful aspect are pleasing, at the same time, our little Village Cafe precinct is 150 metres from your room. The only thing standing in your way is the trees you can see from your verandah.
At the village we have the Tourist Information Centre, Tennis Court, Glenbrook Cinema, Glenbrook Panthers Bowling Club, Cafes galore, retro and gift shops, Glenbrook Swim Centre, Churches, Schools, Town Parks & Blue Mts National Park. Costs associated with any of these facilities are very modest.
You will be staying walking distance from Glenbrook's entrance to the Blue Mountains National Park, and yes, you can see kangaroos in the wild practically on cue. Visit "Red Hands Cave" or you can swim in our beautiful creeks choosing "The Blue Pool" or "Jelly Bean" swimming holes, or take a more urban stroll around "Glenbrook Lagoon", find a hilltop and check the views east to Sydney and west across the expansive Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park.
10 minutes’ drive and you can visit the Sydney International Regatta Centre, or canoe, kayak, ski or cruise on the Nepean River enjoying the paddle steamers -The Nepean Belle or Platypus. The launch ramp for all these activities is at Tench Reserve.
You can also walk or cycle, bridge-to-bridge on a loop circuit across the river. Spend a few hours or a whole day enjoying this part of the Nepean. Stop in at the Coffee Club overlooking the boat ramp, or the Lewer's Gallery Cafe on River Road, Emu Plains. It features regional produce on the menu and a beautiful garden. Both venues are first class experiences if you love your food and views and want to feel pampered and welcome.
There is so much to see and enjoy with Wildwood in the Lower Blue Mts as your home base. A long time local girl, I can give you advice on most things related to this area, accommodating extra guests, small groups, or continuing your holiday in other parts of Australia. Just ask; you're most welcome.
Just off the M4 entering into the Mountains, its an easy location for Sydneysiders wanting a weekend away with an easy trip back home. Lots of my guests have a great holiday using public transport. Borrow the bicycles if you wish....take them on the train... ride along the river...
For overseas guests, hire cars can be picked up from the airport, or Sydney City locations as well as nearby Penrith, which you can travel to via trains from Central. I occasionally ask my guests about their choice of hire car so I can share current information with future travellers.

We had a wonderful stay at Wombat's. It was a convenient yet quiet and peaceful location, the studio immaculately clean and well-equipped and Christine was a very accommodating host. Glenbrook is a great base for bushwalking and mountain biking and the village centre has some lovely cafés.
Its been my 3rd time here, and i will keep coming back . Christine's hospitality is just simply amazing. The amenities are wonderful and near the train station. You just have to experience the wombats experience to believe it :)
The back room at Wombats is a treat: arrive through the garden and verandah...comfortable and quiet, kitchenette pantry and bookshelves are very well stocked, and as always, there's Christine' excellent hospitality
My wife and I yet again thoroughly enjoyed our break at Wombats. It's quiet and relaxing. Christine strikes the right balance between being very friendly, but not intrusive. We thoroughly recommend Wombats!
My husband and I (and my two dogs) has a wonderful weekend staying at Christine's place.The place is clean and tidy.Christine made sure there was food in the fridge.She is one of the most lovely host whom I have ever met.She went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.She gave us so many good recommendations for places to visit. And it was very thoughtful of her that she asked us if we needed anything when she did her shopping.I would definitely recommend Wombat's to every couple who is looking for accomodation in Bluemountain area.
Christine is such a lovely and caring host. From the initial communication to our goodbyes it was a fantastic stay and we probably gained some extra pounds with all the provided and freshly made food and the excellent bottle of wine. The apartment is lovely decorated and if you need anything Christine is there to help you. Thank you very much for a great stay!!!
Christine is an exceptional host!!! She made us feel welcome and special from the get-go. And her place is great! Clean, spacious, conveniently located, etc.
