Simply the best homestay experience we have ever had anywhere. Amazing settings, furnishings, amenities and such a lovely garden, it was a dream stay-cation for our family. We would recommend it to any of our friends in a heartbeat and would love to return. Thank you for making our stay in the Blue Mountains unique and memorable. All the best! Happy New Year!

This cottage is something special. Situated in a quiet area, near all the attractions on the Blue Mountains, Poets Cottage is just the best. You are greeted by beautiful gardens, bird calls and the best-presented cottage my family has stayed at. Sophia presents the cottage beautifully. From the large comfortable beds, pillows, spacious lounge/dining area to the fully equipped kitchen. You want for nothing. The tree-shaded back patio was just the spot to enjoy the wine, food and friends during the twilight period of summer. My family totally enjoyed the quiet times at the cottage between visiting family and enjoying the walks through the Wentworth Falls/Leura area that can be accessed without driving from this property. Sophia is a great host and we will be back. Thank you, Sophia, for a wonderful experience.

We loved our stay at Poet's Cottage - it was even better than we expected (and our expectations were high!). Everything was absolutely first class and the attention to detail and cleanliness were exceptional. The property itself is just beautiful and the large doors onto the back deck let through the most amazing fresh mountain air. We loved sitting out on the back deck sipping the freshly brewed coffee (great espresso machine!) and listening to the wind through the trees and exploring the paths through the huge garden. The house was close to all the major attractions in the area. In all, we loved our stay. Tranquility and luxury all in one stunning property.

I cannot think of enough superlatives to describe this property. It is absolutely stunning from the overall presentation to the tiniest little details. Firstly it is in a fantastic location, an easy drive from Leura village. The cottage itself is beautiful. It's immaculately presented with the highest quality furnishings. It's like staying in a 5-star hotel. The host Sophia is so accommodating. I was able to contact her about anything and nothing was too much for her. My parents came to Australia from the UK for the first time and this is the first place I took them after they saw Sydney. It was luxury. The back garden is a fairytale and we enjoyed a lovely BBQ on the deck. It was tough because the standard was set and I couldn't beat it. Thank you!

Our family stayed at Poet's Cottage over the weekend and we could not recommend this place highly enough! The location is perfect and the owner's attention to detail and good taste is obvious in every aspect of this lovely home. Thank you for allowing us to stay in this wonderful home and helping to make our weekend memorable.

Poet's Cottage was an amazing experience. Everything was fabulous from the moment we booked. Prior to arriving, we received an incredible online guide with instructions on how to use everything in the house as well as recommendations for local activities and restaurants. The house itself was luxurious throughout with high-quality touches everywhere - from soft Sheridan towels to MOR shower gel and even a choice of pillow softness! We loved meandering through the garden down to the bush and relaxing on the back deck. We even had a visit from two beautiful cats from next door. The kids were kept quiet with Netflix on TV whilst we loved relaxing doing nothing! Overall an amazing stay in what we found out was the former home of a famous Blue Mountains poet (you must read the amazing poems on the wall). A truly memorable experience and we can't wait to stay again - definitely the best cottage we've stayed at in the Blue Mountains.
