Subiaco is within a short stroll of the highest point in the Blue Mountains. For 20 years until May 2012 it was a private holiday home that is now available for you to enjoy and is ideally suited for a couple or family with up to 2 school age children.
Retaining all of its 1920's charm with high ceilings, front return verandah, large covered rear deck and surrounded by a beautiful mature garden it is perfect for that weekend getaway or a mid week break to relax and unwind.
Although located within a short walk to Mt Victoria village, Hornes Point, Mt Piddington rock climbs and nearby walks it is however very private and quiet.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms one with a queen bed and the other with 2 single beds all with electric blankets. Linen & towels are provided for guests using these beds so all you need to do is arrive and begin your break when you enter the front door.
While only having 2 bedrooms Subiaco however has 2 bathrooms, one with a bath & shower overhead and the other with just a shower unit.
If required a full size cot/bassinet with a mattress can be arranged to be provided & assembled, for an additional cost of $25 per stay, if a couple only have a small baby/toddler.
You can choose whether to just relax and enjoy the cottage, grounds or panoramic view of Kanimbla Valley and further out towards Oberon & Bathurst or use Subiaco as your base to explore and discover the local and surrounding area.
A selection of books, games & DVD's are also provided should the weather be unfavourable or you decide to just stay in at the cottage.
