Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stay This is our second stay at Sidney's retreat, and one of our favourite places to book... Cozy, comfortable, fantastic location, wonderful back deck with great view, wood burning fire... Clean, stocked with all the essentials and the caretaker was warm, welcoming and easy to reach. All around great accommodation. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weekend away We had a fantastic stay at Sidney's. The house was beautifully presented and extremely clean and it was lovely to walk into a warm house on a cold day thanks to the fire having been lit before we arrived. My son loved the toy box and the board games and we would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a weekend away in the blue mountains. The only downfall is the parking as it is on a side street approximately 40metres from the entrance to the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic peaceful property Such a pleasant surprise to arrive to a delightfully clean house with everything we needed for our stay. So close to the main street of Katoomba yet quiet and very spacious for a 2 bedroom. The view from the verandah, for being in the middle of town, was quite pleasant. Awaking to the delicious smell of Jasmine and fresh air was exactly what we needed. Quality linen and fluffy towels made it feel like a stay in a 5 star hotel. I am so pleased to have chosen Sidney's instead of a 5 star hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property Gorgeous property. We throughly enjoyed our stay. Well appointed and lots of homely touches. It was freezing outside when we arrived yet the home had been prepared and was warm and toasty. Would definitely stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stay - near shops yet secluded We loved our stay at Sidney's Retreat. We picked it because it was a five minute walk to the shops and grocery store, yet was set in the trees with a large, private deck overlooking the valley. It was also about a 6 minute walk from the train station. We loved the setting and spent most of our time on the deck enjoying the birds or looking out the generous wall of windows off the main living space. The house was very comfortable and well-equipped. Great shower, tub and the softest towels ever. It is set off the main road on a green walk. We arrived after dark and appreciated that they left the lights and a cozy gas heater on for us. We were a couple but could easily accommodate a second couple or two children. We liked the old framed photos and other decorative items from the area. Note that there is no phone provided. We had no trouble getting reception on our cell phones.
