Our misty-grey timber cottage is sunny all year round; a wall of windows and French doors are leading out to the front veranda deck overlooking a fragrant cottage garden filled with many rose varieties and old-fashioned flowering plants. Behind the house a quirky handrail next to natural stone steps lead down to the back garden planted with Australian tree ferns and other native plants that attract birds. There is a large raised deck at the back door looking over our rainforest-type garden.

The house is centrally heated and one powerful air-conditioner provides summer relief. A well-equipped kitchen is leading into an open plan dining /living area decorated with our own artworks. From our large salon a staircase is leading up to a mezzanine room, which we use as a guest room/study equipped with a computer with high-speed Internet connection.
One light-filled queen-sized bedroom has views across the back garden and the reserve. The second bedroom has twin beds, walk-in closet & ensuite bathroom. There is an extra bathroom and toilet plus a small laundry towards the back of the house. The total floor area including the mezzanine is approx. 225m² and living- and bedrooms are outfitted with three televisions, one with DVD player.
For more information on the house and us, an article that was written about us in May 2008 in the ABC Life Magazine.

We are located 100 km west of Sydney, at 900m above sea level in the famous world heritage listed Blue Mountains, and 1.5kms from Wentworth Falls, which has arguably the most stunning waterfalls in the Blue Mountains. Located just a few hundred meters away from our very well situated cottage are many bushwalking trails one of which is the famous Charles Darwin Walk, which runs along the creek. Our property borders the Jamison Reserve and bushland leading down into the valley towards the Darwin Walk. Wentworth Falls Lake + Picnic Area are located a short drive from the cottage.

Walks, golf, horse riding, public swimming pools + gyms, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and galleries are all within 5to 20 minutes drive to Wentworth Falls, Leura, Katoomba or Blackheath. There is a very good train service from the Blue Mountains to Sydney and other towns. Kangaroos can be sighted at Euroka Clearing in the Lower Blue Mountains.

We are two recently retired women in our early 60’s, Jenny & Ulla, artists and enthusiastic gardeners and music lovers, with a large classical CD collection. We have the freedom to go anywhere and will consider short or long-term exchanges with the option of including our car. As exchange partners we prefer older couples, non smokers without children.
