Zelma's Cottage is a charming self-contained 'Blue Mountains' bungalow accommodating up to 8 guests, located in a quiet area of Leura, just a few minutes' walk from the famous Leura village.

The cottage has been the family retreat for over 45 years. In early 2017, the cottage was lovingly renovated throughout with stunning polished wood floors, brand new fully equipped kitchen and bathroom and with elegant furnishings in every room.

The Cottage is set in an acre of beautiful gardens designed by world famous landscape gardener 'Sorensen", with many native birds and wildlife visiting the property daily.

A spacious living room, furnished with plush classic couches, cushions and coffee table flows into a dining room with a long country style dining table and sideboard. The brand new kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to cook sumptuous lunches and dinners, as well luxury extras such as a Nespresso for coffee lovers.

Each of the main two bedrooms are beautifully decorated and feature queen beds, with a third spacious bedroom containing four bunk beds.

Gas heating throughout, with heating in the bathroom, ensures the cottage is always warm and inviting in winter, with window screens for the warmer months.

There is a spacious, under cover front deck for outdoor living with views over the stunning garden, as well as off street parking for two or three cars.

The cottage offers FREE Wi-Fi and there is a UHD TV with Netflix in living area, as well as an extra TV/DVD combo in the master bedroom.
