Second stay at one of the Mountain Whispers properties, and once again, a real treat!! Absolutely AMAZING! The place to be for Rest & Relaxation. The places are superb, and am extremely keen to stay at the all :) Easy communications with the host, Lorraine, helpful in all areas, and gave it that extra special touch knowing it had been my birthday a day earlier to arriving! :) Thankyou again. A truly special weekend was had by all!

“Loved "The Gatsby"”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had stayed in Mountain Whispers cottages 4 times previously so are obviously fans. This was our first time at The Gatsby. Lorraine's luxurious touches and attention to detail were evident in this property as well.

Email contact is always personal, friendly and efficient. Arrival instructions are provided. The Gatsby was very comfortable and well appointed. Luxury towels, bedding, everything you would expect. Great spa. WiFi is excellent as is the TV and other entertainment options. The position is Katoomba is fantastic, within walking distance of Echo Point and the town itself.

To sum it up - a great stay once again - Mountain Whispers Cottages set a new standard in luxury self-contained accommodation. Highly recommended and congrats to Lorraine on her cottages.

From the moment we stepped through the door we could not stop saying 'WOW'!

There was vintage music playing, the heating and lights were on and we felt instantly welcome and at home.

The entire property has been set up with incredible attention to detail. It has everything you could ever want and more, from the fabulous bathrooms with under floor heating and a stained glass window, to the port, wine, breakfast provisions and even the opportunity for an in-house massage, we really felt like staying forever!!

“Beautiful House in excellent location”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The house was beautiful and set up with everything you would need for a relaxing stay. There are so many extra touches in all Mountain Whispers homes, The Gatsby, being no different. From the fresh flowers and chocolates to the breakfast provisions and port, it has everything, including heated flooring in the bathroom. The Gatsby is in a fantastic location with an easy walk to the three sisters and a short drive to Scenic World. We had a fantastic stay again and look forward to returning very soon. Thanks again Lorraine for the fantastic work you do in renting such wonderful properties.

“Magical Mountain Escape”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

From the moment we stepped inside to the moment we left we truly felt pampered and were able to relax and unwind. The champagne, port, platter, breakfast and other touches all assisted in making it a weekend to remember.

We will be back either at The Gatsby or one of Mountain Whispers other properties.
