Holiday Rental House
At Fifth Ave Katoomba Retreat, our sole aim is to provide you with a space that makes you feel relaxed, where stress is left at the curb and you experience that “ahh” moment as soon as you walk in. We provide necessities for families so you focus more on time together and less on what to pack. And little luxuries that you may forget such as bath salts and a shaving mirror, encouraging you to unwind a little longer. We’ve had our share of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly on our own travels, like TVs that don't work or having to make the beds. That’s not our idea of a short break so we’ve made sure to include lots from the first and none from the other two! We've put ourselves in your shoes and thrive on creating an inviting space that’s clean, spacious and “tested” by us so to speak.

We provide necessities for families so you focus more on time together and less on what to pack.

We’ve had our share of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly on our own travels, like TVs that don't work or having to make the beds. That’s not our idea of a short break so we’ve made sure to include lots from the first and none from the other two! We've put ourselves in your shoes and thrive on creating an inviting space that’s clean, spacious and “tested” by us so to speak. Owner operated and maintained means we check the little things - like dimmed nightlights that don't keep you awake or vacuuming under beds. You’ll feel that “ahh” moment again when you sink into bed and you’ll probably have the best sleep you’ve had in awhile. It’s so quiet here, you may have to force yourself to go seek adventure. There’s certainly no shortage of things to do in this beautiful region of New South Wales. On checkout day we entice you to sleep in – after all, who wants to end their relaxing break by running out the door before 10am? Take as long as you need to pack, make sure the kids are happy and sit down with that essential cup of coffee (sorry, that's just me!) as you take in your dose of the view. The only exception to this is when we have back to back bookings. Do let us know why you’re visiting the Blue Mountains so we can personalise your stay with us. For your memorable trip to the Blue Mountains, contact us today. KITCHEN Fully equipped large space Oven, grill, cooktop, microwave Italian coffee machine and teapots Pots, pans, crockery and cutlery including children's Pantry stocked with essentials Ask us about our Dine In option.

Thank you Franca123456789 We’re happy that you enjoyed your time at Fifth Ave Katoomba Retreat. We look forward to hosting you again. We love Winter too but try Autumn and Spring to see Nature in the Blue Mtns NSW at its finest.

While the location is picturesque and so much to see and do, it is equally as nice to stay in and enjoy a homely feel.

Thank you Jeannette, that's exactly how I feel when I'm there (wish I could actually live there!!) It's a great base to explore the area from, and a home to come back to afterwards. We look forward to accommodating you again.
