“Beautiful warm house in the mountains”
Reviewed 20 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We were a party of four and chose this house for a birthday get-together while spending some time mountain biking and enjoying the sites.

The house has a great fire/heater which was the best part for me personally! I hate the cold so i was most excited to curl up on the sofa next to it.

The house is also well serviced with literally everything you would need including cereal and milk for the morning. There’s also every appliance you might want. I enjoyed having some peanut type snacks in the morning which we found in a cookie jar.

For the girls especially, there are two hairdryers as well moisturisers etc and endless hot water in the shower.

The location of the house is close to town and our uber was very reasonable.

Beds were very comfy and ours was nice and tall which I prefer, and I slept so well.

The host let us check out later on this occasion as perhaps there weren’t any guests the next day so we appreciated that, thank you!

Would highly recommend - exceeded expectations

“Quiet, Cosy & Warm”
Reviewed 3 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The location of Fifth Ave is very central to Katoomba, Leura, & Blackheath. We spent our week bushwalking in each of these areas. It was only a short drive to restaurants and cafes for meals and within the delivery area of some, if you don't want to go out.
This house was our home away from home - it was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The back deck was sunny and warm and we spent most mornings out there looking at the birds and nature. The beds were lovely and warm along with the fire which we had on each night. There is a selection of board games, DVD's and videos for use which came in handy at night.
Silvana kept in contact with us to make sure we were enjoying our stay and had all we needed. The booking process was easy and all our questions were answered promptly via email.
Overall, a very nice and relaxing holiday was had by my family.

It was a fantastic experience. Strongly recommend it. The attention to detail starting from the authentic Italian ingredients to presenting the cooked meal at the table.
