TiWilla, was built in 1938 as a rural holiday cottage for a working Balmain family. It still retains that semi rural feel today, handily located to all forms of transport yet has a secluded and relaxing atmosphere. It sits on a large block in complete privacy and distance from the neighbors so you never get that hemmed in feel so often found with other holiday houses in the Blue Mountains. It is positioned wonderfully on a raised north facing block with a great aspect and is sun filled all day (important in the Blue Mountains!) and is light and airy as a result.
Newly renovated with all original features restored, re-functionised and/or re-interpreted.
At night it becomes a cosy retreat with its log fire, full chef`s kitchen and fun retro bar. Heating is provided by eco electric panels, gas heater, the log fire (which can warm the whole house) and heated bathroom floor.
Fun House Perfect for 1 or 2 couples
In essence TiWilla is the perfect retreat for couples or for smaller gatherings of up to two couples or a family of 4. There are 2 bedrooms both with beautifully comfortable queen beds and the main bedroom has an occasional bed/settee as well. The living room also features a very comfortable queen sized pull out sofa bed enabling another couple to squeeze in (sleeping up to 7) if need be.
The large sun-filled, totally private and wind free covered deck is great for entertaining (even on a sunny winters day!) with 2 bbq choices (wood fired or gas). A fifteen minute level walk to town and the location of the house, so close to all the main attractions and bushwalks makes it a great base from which to explore the locality.
Priced from $130 per night for 2 people ( PRICE INCLUDES CLEANING and WiFi ), we have endeavored to make it as affordable as can be. Lovely linen is available for a reasonable extra cost.
PLEASE NOTE: Contrary to how it looks on the map and in response to all enquiries, this property is NOT situated directly on the highway or railway and is indeed not affected by the noise of either but IS very handily located near to both!! It is close enough to town but far enough away to feel secluded...
ALSO PLEASE NOTE: I do not edit my Guestbook entries. As you read them is how they are voluntarily written and sent to me. Many thanks to those that do!
Cosy, relaxed and very private TiWilla is also available with in house massage by fully accredited masseur Chihoko Nakamura from Shizen BodyCare from $85 for a one hour treatment. Enjoy a massage and unwind by the log fire or enjoy a glass of wine on the deck afterwards for a truly rejuvenating experience.

Highly recommend a stay here!
My partner and I just spent the weekend at TiWilla and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is lovely and has everything there that you need, including a fire and plenty of wood to keep you toasty warm. The fire and numerous heaters in the house made the stay very comfortable although it was freezing outside. The location is private and nice and close to everything, a short drive to the amazing cafes and restaurants in Katoomba and convenient to go bushwalking at Wentworth Falls and check out the Three Sisters. We will definitely stay there agaib if we get the chance.

Excellent and Value for Money
We enjoyed our stay, the house is warm and cozy and fits two couple comfortably however it would be a tight fit to fit more people. The heated floor in the bathroom was a bonus and ample fire wood kept the chill at bay.

Quaint & Cosy!!
My recent stay at Tiwilla with my mother & daughter for the Magic Festival made our 'girls weekend' all the more enjoyable. It felt very homely from the moment we stepped inside, and once we had the log heater crackling away it made our Wintery nights very cosy indeed. The beds were very comfortable and the quaint kitchen was complete with every utensil & appliance we needed for our warm nights in. We really enjoyed our mornings out on the deck listening to the birds in the nearby trees, and even the occasional freight train rumbling past didn't detract from the feeling of serenity that TiWilla has to offer. I would confidently recommend this property, and being such a short drive from the highway & to the main streets of Katoomba makes it an easy trip to a home away from home.

We found that 'TiWilla' met all our requirements for our comfortable 5 night stay. A cheery, well equipped kitchen to cook in, a peaceful deck to relax on and an overall welcoming cosiness. So close to some of Australia's most beautiful landmarks and walking trails. Would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
