The title heading says it all. The femme and i were searching for a bolt-hole in Katoomba and spotted the pink photo. Chintzy was our combined retort. But reading the amenities listed we plumped for ir.

The Blue Mountains are an obligatory destination for anyone visiting New South Wales. And what better place to stay than Burnie Brae - every comfort you could hope to have - a very well equipped kitchen where you could rustle up a meal for a small army if you felt like it!
Our host, Michael was extremely helpful and attentive to our queries both before we arrived and during our stay.
OMG the property far exceeded our expectations, it was as if the owners had welcomed us into their own home. From the moment we walked in the front door you got a feeling of warmth & luxury.
We arrived parked our car and never had to use it again why we were there. The location was perfect we walked everywhere.
Michael (the owner) sent relative and up to date information, we went to most of his suggestions as well as finding our own hidden gems. I would definitely stay at Burnie Brae again. Thank you what an amazing beautiful home.
I have stayed here before and it is still as wonderful as the first time. Very clean, neat tidy house with antique furnishings and lamps, floor boards and beautiful rugs. I love the attention to detail with the paintings that match the crockery in the antique cabinets. Also has modern bathroom fixtures, very well designed home with easy to find and use kitchen and bathroom. Has a double rainshower and a wonderful stove. The kitchen is very well stocked with cutlery kitchen equipment and tea! Coffee, tea milk, butter, condiments were provided. All linen and towels supplied. Has underfloor heating good for the winter. Garden is beautiful. It was only less than a 10 min walk to the shops and the Blue Mountains music festival on Lurline st, and the train station as well. Excellent wifi and self check in and check out. Will come and stay again. The house has a pleasant atmosphere and I always feel welcome.
Absolutely loved this place, location is fantastic, house is very comfortable and livable. Loved all the antique furniture and fittings and even though the house is close to town it is very quiet.
Shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and public transport (buses and trains) are all close at hand, so much so that during our four night stay we didn't use our car once.
it rained every day but no matter. Everything, cafes, station, buses, the Carrington, the cinema, were in walking distance. The house is really lovely, very fully equipped with under floor heating to add to the comfort.
Could do with brighter lighting in the kitchen and for reading, but otherwise a perfect mountain retreat.
Enjoyed spacious and private, lovely garden view, convenient location.
It is a comfortable self contained Traditional Mountain Home for single or small family. It is also a good place for retreat.
