LUSH on Lurline
|Address||Lurline St, Katoomba, 2780 Katoomba, Australia|
We are in the heart of Katoomba's tourist area but in a very tranquil setting with fountains, ponds and water features. Cafes, galleries and all the major bush walks are within five minutes walk of the house. It's just a short walk to the village centre, 20 minutes walk from the station and there's a bus stop directly outside the front gate. The spectacular Echo Point and Three Sisters are at the end of the street - a 12 minute walk or two minute drive. Directly opposite the house is a popular restaurant and just one street away is an indulgent Thai day spa.
The apartment offers a very large bedroom, with a tranquil deck off to the side where you can have a barbecue or drink a glass of wine on the cool summer evening.
There is an aromatherapy spa shower in your ensuite bathroom and there's also a living room with open fireplace, bar fridge and tea and coffee making facilities, 40" flat screen monitor for DVD watching, (no TV), Apple TV and a good selection of DVDs.
The aromatherapy shower gives pure, chemical free water and dispenses skin nourishers including collagen (removable if you are vegetarian) and vitamin C. Who needs a day spa? It's all here for you! If you wish, you are also welcome to use the deep spa bath in the back section of the house.
The apartment is completely private with a lockable door between it and the rest of the house.
Before booking please note that LUSH is for adults over 18 only. It is not suitable for children and can accommodate three by arrangement. Two very friendly large lurchers live at the back of the house.
House rulesPlease lock the front door when you leave the house and make sure it is bolted when you come back in. Leaving the front door open at any time unfortunately means immediate termination of your stay.
No food or drink in the bedroom (except water)
And, as I am on solar power, please turn off all lights when you leave the bedroom or in the living room when you go to bed at night.
No smoking anywhere on the property.
Finally, have a great time!
Now, anyone can say they’ve read the house rules but I will know if you really have if you text or email: “Who put the Oi in very annoying dog?”

Reviews of this property
We had only one overnight stay at Lush on Lurline, but we absolutely enjoyed it.
Jilea and her two big, friendly dogs Oi and Barkley made us feel very welcome and "at home".
She also had great recommendations for walks around Katoomba and even offered to take us to one of them since we did not have a car.
Everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. The apartment has a very unique interior that both me and my partner Philipp liked very much. The house and especially its garden are absolutely beautiful.
If we happen to stay in Katoomba another time in the future, we would be happy to stay with Jilea, Oi and Barkley again :)
Jilea is such a caring and lovely host. She took us to restaurant where I had the best fhaifood ever! She knows her area well and had a lot of suggestions. She also came and picked us up at the staition.
Her home is an adventure, full of beautiful things from her journeys to countries all over the world. I trid the bubblebath and it was great! As Jilea has two big dogs that are kind and lively.
We, me and my daughter can really recommend Jileas place!

Wir genossen jeden Augenblick in Jileas außergewöhnlichem Haus in Katoomba. Es war der perfekte Ausgangspunkt für unsere Wandertouren in den Blue Mountains. Jilea war eine hervorragende Gastgeberin: warmherzig, offen und voller Humor. Und ihr "kleiner" Hund Oi war ein richtig guter Kumpel. Wir haben beide in unser Herz geschlossen.
Jilea is a wonderful host!! She's taken great care in furnishing her house. It's fascinating!! Her dog 'Oi" is a delight. Katoomba and the surrounding area is a wonderful place to visit! Be sure to book a stay here!!
Wirkich something special. We felt very welcome. The pictures of the house speak for themselves and in the bathroom, you will feel as a princess. Hikers, much wants to learn about flora and fauna is the place to go for several days. Jilea has an impressive Wssen about the native animals and leaves you a fee to the wild kangaroos and other great destinations. It is worthwhile! Bring for cool evenings on the beautiful terrace warm jacket. Reached by train from Sydney in two hours. ($ 8.20 one way). Jilea is a great hostess.

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Jilea place in late August. The house is beautiful and comfortable. Appreciate the effort Jilea has put in decorating the house. Jilea is a lovely host and so does her dog Oi. Our room is very spacious and the aromatherapy shower is really a treat . We had a great time there but it would be perfect if the weather is less cold.
