'Highlands at Leura' is perched high on the block and when residing in this enchanting home, it feels like your own tree house, engulfed with lush green vegetation surrounds. Colourful local parrots are frequent visitors to the garden.

Hidden off the street, up its own, private lane-way, this cosy four bedroom cottage is privately positioned, designed to bring in much natural light, with a soft green bush outlook. The open plan living area, with vaulted cathedral ceilings, has a fully equipped kitchen and there are quality furnishings throughout. Sliding doors open out, on to spacious entertainment decks both front and rear.

This inviting mountain cottage has a king, queen, and two king single beds, in the upstairs bedrooms, with a double sofa-bed, in the living area. There are three bathrooms; one as an en-suite to bedroom 1, the main bathroom serves the house with a large two person spa plus separate shower. The downstairs studio has a queen size bed plus provision for a single fold-up bed available on request, a sitting area with TV and a bathroom with separate shower. With central heating and a slow combustion wood burning stove, ‘Highlands at Leura’ has ample warmth, for the cool mountain weather. Reverse cycle air conditioning keeps the house comfortably cool during the summer months.

Set in picturesque upper mountains, it is superbly located within a short stroll to the Leura Village, renown for its charming cafes, quality restaurants and boutique shopping. One can find pristine cliff edge walks, rainforests, cascading waterfalls and spectacular views close by in Katoomba, Wentworth Falls, Blackheath and Mount Victoria.

This is a non-smoking cottage and accommodates up to 10 people. If you require linen and towels to be provided, an additional fee of $25.00 per person applies to cover the cost of laundry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stay at Highlands!!! Our family really enjoyed our stay. Your house is beautiful with the perfect balance of luxury features, combined with an honest homestyle feeling. The kitchen is fantastic and has all the right equipment to ensure that I was able to cook up a feast for the family. The lounge room is spacious and comfy, and the fire made our stay all the more memorable. Our king size bed was wonderful! Rudi is still raving about the 'best sleep he's had away from home'. The kids loved their rooms and our eldest son (12 years old) ended up sleeping in the downstairs room and loved his little mini-bachelor pad! Our dogs loved the yard and felt very spoiled and the especially loved sleeping on the floor right beside the fire!!! We, as a family, have some very beautiful memories from our time there and thank you for opening the house up to visitors such as us. Rudi and I are already talking about trying to get back for another stay with just the 2 of us and our doggos! Thank you again! Rachael, Rudi, Kiddos and Doggos :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highlands was wonderful We had a wonderful stay at Highlands, it was just what we needed. The house was clean, luxurious, well appointed and really private yet close enough to stroll to Leura village. The central heating and wood fire kept the house warm and cozy. The king bed in the master bedroom was really comfortable. We definitely plan to come back again soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not quite luxury in the treetops Windows covered in cobwebs, grass so long in the backyard we could'nt go out there, certainly not a short walk to Leura Mall, linen and towels extra, no wifi. Lovely house, could have been a good stay but feeling quite let down.
