Central Hideaway
We had such a lovely time at the Sidney Retreat! The house was beautifully kept and we had everything we needed. Sitting in the living room looking out from the amazing amount of glass into the misty outlook was divine! It was so centrally located we could walk to the highstreet of Katoomba to get our groceries and morning coffees. Will definitely plan another getaway there soon!

Sweet cottage
Sweet cosy cottage with everything you need for a lovely relaxing getaway. Super conviently located near town and lookouts yet very peaceful and quiet. Well appointed amenities and plenty of heating for the colder months. No parking out the front however plenty of parking on side street and across the road for unloading.
Such a beautiful place. The sun shines right on the balcony in the morning so lovely to have breakfast out there. Super clean and they provided us with a few things like coffee pods and shampoo. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk into the centre and a 20 minute walk to 3 sisters. Close to supermarkets too. Lots of parking on the street. Thanks again.
Great stay - sitting on the balcony we thought we were hidden in the bush. So quiet and still close to everything. Can’t recommend enough
Sidney's retreat is a lovely getaway from the city. Decked out in vintage Australiana and with a treetop view that you'll find it hard to leave. Our German shepherd had a great time sleeping by the fire.
Sidney's Retreat is just the loveliest getaway from the stress of everyday living! Immaculately clean and well cared for, our little family had the best time going for walks, sitting in front of the fire, playing board games and exploring the area. Super close to the amenities of Katoomba, but a world away once you open the front gate, I couldn't recommend it enough! Thank you!
Our stay at Sidney’s retreat was lovely, warm and cosy. It’s a lovely cottage with a great location. The fireplace was the biggest highlight, great to lounge by in the evenings..
Sidney's retreat was a delightful change from the hustle and bustle of the city! We loved the wood fire and the big bath great for thawing your muscles after a big hike. Fully equiped kitchen allowed us to cook all our dinners in the evening and the big back windows proved impressive for the morning sunrise. Don't be alarmed by the possums tap dancing on the roof as the wildlife comes alive in the night. We were worried about heating but the bed had an electric blanket and there was a great gas heater in the main room. Would definitely stay again.
sidneys retreat was a pretty cool quirky space, really relaxed vibes with a beautiful view out the living area and balcony and fire place is an extra bonus. sunrise out the back was extra pretty. super close to main street of katoomba, hikes and drives. We drove to jenolan caves easily for a nice day trip. our group of 6 adults and 1 kid and 2 babies were very comfortable here together.
10/10, faultless. The place was even better than the photos. Incredibly convenient location, sparkling clean place full of character and a fantastic view. Plus, Jenny allowed us a late check out which meant we could cook up a beautiful big breakfast after a morning hike around the mountains. It felt like it was our home! We're already planning our return.
