Helen's popular boutique heritage cottage in Katoomba accommodates up to four people. Only one booking is held over the property so you or your group have full privacy and facilities are not shared.


"OurSecret" is private, self-contained and fully furnished, with a gas log fire in the comfortable heritage lounge room. The cottage has comfortable heritage-style Queen-sized beds, a well-equipped modern kitchen and shower bathroom with underfloor heating, sun-filled sitting areas, and decks. All linen and towels are provided free of charge, plus some goodies for your arrival.

Digital Freeview TV, local books, and Australia-wide touring information. All mobile networks are fully accessible from here.

The guestbook shows the cottage is popular with artists, musicians, writers, media presenters, chefs on holiday, mountain cyclists and marathon runners, garden and photography enthusiasts, romantic couples, nomads and world travellers, and those just needing a quiet getaway. You are sure to love it too

Arrival time is normally after 4pm and departure by 12 noon - these times are extended by us at last minute whenever possible.

The map provided below can be zoomed in to see our excellent location. Few cottages are so convenient for visitors There is off-street parking for two cars and you can walk easily to many of the highlights.


This lovely cottage is perfectly located just around the corner from Katoomba and Lurline Streets where the Blues-Folk, Elvis, & Winter Magic Festivals are held, between the eclectic Katoomba shops and world famous tourist attractions.

Short, near-level walks from the cottage take you to the Lurline Street galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, RSL Club, the Chocolate Factory, and beyond to Echo Point where you can view the famous "Three Sisters" formation - or you can walk to it along the Prince Henry Cliff Walk. All the highlights of Katoomba/Leura/Wentworthfalls can be reached by Explorer/Trolley bus from a stop just 50 metres away, and there is no need for a car. Taxis, tours, and car hire are all locally available.

Further afield are the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens, Gardens of Stone & Wollemi National Parks, plus Blackheath, Jenolan Caves, and the beautiful Hartley, Kanimbla, and Megalong Valleys which provide opportunities for bushwalking, off-road touring, horse-riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, abseiling, canyoning, garden and winery tours, and wildlife viewing. OurSecret Cottage is in an excellent position to serve as a base for car touring in the Central West and Central Tablelands Regions. Mudgee, Bathurst, Cowra are easy day trips. Up-to-date touring information and maps are provided in the cottage.

OurSecret is our privately-owned heritage boutique cottage set in a mature garden with decks & ponds, and not considered suitable for most children under 12 years. For the health and comfort of all our guests, smoking is outdoors only and there can be no pets.


We always treat everyone with respect, and without judgement or bias, regardless of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age. We expect no less of others, including our guests.


We expect our heritage cottage will receive at least the same respect and care during your stay as you give to your home. We do the cleaning ourselves and always take extra care of properties where we stay, including commercially cleaned hotels. Please respect our trust in allowing you to stay here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosy, clean, comfy and a great location Warm and comfy beds, in large bedrooms; nice hot shower in a bathroom with underfloor heating; lovely warm sunroom; well-equipped kitchen; great location for walking to Katoomba's main street, cafes and restaurants or for bushwalks, Echo Point, Scenic World; owners were great to deal with; very good value. If I had to nominate a negative, it's only a minor one: for a family of three, staying for a whole week, we could have done with an extra comfy lounge chair or two in the sitting room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delightful We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was spotless and comfortable. Extras in catering for cooking, and for the harsh weather, was appreciated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Property Located in a very quiet street, this charming cottage is situated close to Katoomba shops. The log fire gives it that real country feel. The owners are very easy to deal with. Has everything you need for a short or long term stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a lovely hideaway... We have stayed at many mountains cottages, but this one was something rather special. The lovely garden, the spotless kitchen, the heated floor in the bathroom... Safe to say, we didn't want to leave. The owners were a dream to rent from, the rates very competitive, the whole thing was easy and we would recommend it highly to anyone seeking a relaxing hideaway. It's only minutes to everything too which was lovely over the busy Easter weekend. Thanks so much for having us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, comfortable and convenient OurSecret Holiday Cottage is a great place to stay in Katoomba. It is conveniently located for the main centre and has off street parking. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was a surprise and a real treat as a cold snap arrived on the same day we did. The cottage has everything needed for a quick get-away or a longer stay.
