Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic stay We are happily repeat guests at Harry's Lookout for the second year in a row now. Such a convenient location between Leura and Katoomba and walking distance to both (yes, there are hills, it's the mountains after all!). The fenced bush yard is perfect for our two whippets and the very generous 'basics' are supplied for the humans (cooking oil, condiments, tea, coffee, washing powder, etc). I loved sitting on the deck in the morning and evening, listening to the nearby stream and various birds, looking out over the gum trees with my scented candle from the Leura candle shop. Hope to come again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from such a confortable stay We were recuperating form a wedding with guests from overseas...Harry's couldnt have been more perfect. Comforatble inside, large deck, great downstairs annexe-also very comfortable. Quiet, close to some great walks, as we didnt want to drive far it was just great. Cant recommend enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome home away from home Harry's Lookout is a wonderful place to stay. Our family gathering of 6 adults and 2 kids under 2 years old had everything we needed under one roof - the downstairs studio was especially useful to allow the parents to settle the little ones away from the buzz caused by the rest of the family. We will definitely come back again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now that's a property Everything was perfect. From the cleanliness - to how well they thought of the little details. Typically when you go to a house there is always something missing. Harry's had every detail perfect. We are thinking of coming back next July!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for a family getaway We enjoyed our stay and the house had everything that we needed. It would have been helpful to have a list of exactly what the kitchen was equipped with e.g.: salt, sauce, glad wrap etc to save me from taking things I didn't need. The house had everything we needed, from electric blankets to an umbrella it was well equipped and felt just like home. The only disappointment was the house needs a good clean, I did notice this on past reviews as well... the blinds and window sills were covered in thick dust as well as skirting boards and behind beds. There were lots of spider webs everywhere. I had to vacuum around beds and windows before going to bed as we are all prone to allergies and hay fever. Overall a great place to stay it's just in need of a massive deep clean throughout.
