THIS HOUSE IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR THE BLUES FESTIVAL 2016 due to a last minute cancellation. It is located within walking distance (about 6 blocks) to the main festival tent at the Katoomba RSL, on a quiet side street with plenty of parking curbside in front of the property. Alta Mira can sleep up to 15 guests - see below for details!

Alta Mira sits on a quiet tree-lined street in Katoomba, surrounded by its lovely gardens and neighbouring Federation style houses. A renovation several years ago carefully preserved the best of the period features, such as the original imported English canopy bath in the main bathroom, while adding a gorgeous new modern kitchen and another modern bathroom. Alta Mira can sleep up to 15 people (2 x Queen bedrooms, 1 x Double bedroom, 4 Singles in one bedroom, plus a separate sunroom with a double and a single bed. Optional sofabed in lounge area.) There are two bathrooms servicing the house: the original Edwardian bathroom with glass canopy bathtub and pull-chain toilet, plus a modern bath with separate shower and spa bath.

Other features for our guests' enjoyment include a nearly new large flatscreen LCD television and BluRay player, complimentary WIFI access, a separate TV which runs the games box, two Bluetooth enabled speakers, and a period piano for music buffs, plus Books, games, videogames for the gamebox and DVDs.

Alta Mira is centrally heated throughout the house, including heated towel rails in both bathrooms. There is also a gas log fire in the dining for great ambience and convenience as well. There are electric blankets supplied on all beds.

Alta Mira is just a few minutes' walk to Katoomba Street, with its cafes, restaurants and shops, but is tucked away in a quiet corner of Katoomba. Perfect for a mountains getaway, you get the best of both worlds. Go for a stroll to Katoomba Town Centre, take a slightly longer walk to the Three Sisters, or just wander through Alta Mira's private gardens and then curl up in Alta Mira's centrally heated and beautifully furnished interior.

Our stay at Alta Mira was purely magic given that I was hoping for snow for

my birthday and I got it.

How special was that!!!!

Thank you for accommodating my wish to have a fire and that made it just so

much more beautiful.

It is certainly a place I would go back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great property for a large group Family group of 4 couples had a comfortable weekend in this house. Great lounge area for a group and the kitchen had everything we needed. Beautiful grounds with daffodils, jonquils and camellias - Sept is the perfect time to visit. Located close enough to walk to Echo Point or the main street. We will be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice place for 3-4 families to have short break Alta Mira is close to everything that blue Mountains could offer. The garden of the house is a big bonus. The rooms are spacious and living areas are functional and modern with antiques style. The heating system is a beautiful beast. The sanity rooms are a bit busy if it is a full house, say, you really have 12+ people living there, you will end with a long queue. But this is not a complaint, because we spent more time outdoors for pretty scenery the Autumn could present to us.
