Sunny two bedroom garden flat just one block from the Three Sisters and Jamison Valley bushwalks.
A restored 1950's holiday flat in a garden setting.
It is only one block from the famous Three Sisters at Echo Point. Watch sunset over the Jamison Valley when all the tourists have left for the day.
Several of the Blue Mountains' most famous bush walks can be accessed from the end of the street and all the restaurants, cafes and bric a brac shops of Katoomba and Leura are also very close.
The flat faces directly north so sun fills the space during the day. A beautiful 'Eco- Smart' open fire keeps it cosy at night and there are heaters and electric blankets in both bedrooms. There is a queen sized bed in the main bedroom and a double bed in the second bedroom. A substantial roll-away single bed can also be used in any of the rooms. All mattresses and linen are good quality. Linen and towels are supplied
What makes the flat unique are the beautiful Mid-20th Century furniture and fittings including 1950's and 1960's pieces from Australia and Denmark. The floors are polished hardwood with scattered hides and rugs. The original 1950's bathroom and kitchen have been sensitively restored. For those who like to cook the kitchen is very well equipped.
There are two TVs (lounge and 2nd bedroom) with video/ CD/ DVD players, movies, games and books for when entertainment tastes differ. There is also a turntable and a collection of L.P.s to allow music enthusiasts to enjoy the sound of vinyl.
No 20 Forster Rd is a pale grey building (there is an identical building in a mirror position at no. 22). Flat 2 is the front flat, facing the street.
READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY ...There is a coded lock on the SIDE door of the flat. NOT THE FRONT DOOR. The side door is on the right hand side as you look directly at the flat. For security purposes we will TEXT that code to your mobile as we change the code frequently. If arriving after dark a sensor light should assist you to find the door and use the coded lock. When you get in, there is a key to the front door hanging immediately in front of you on the wall hanger. During your stay this will be easier to use than the coded lock. Please leave it in the same place when you leave.
Please park at the rear of the block directly in front of and close to the garage. NOTE the driveway is shared with other tenants and in one flat there is a very young child. Please proceed slowly and carefully down the drive way. There is a carport to the right of the garage however these spaces are used by the permanent tenants. There is lots of street parking but beware as this area is very close to The 3 Sisters there are sometimes parking officers.

Другие важные подробности
The Eco Smart open fire burns methylated spirits (metho). There will be five litres in the special dispenser on the kitchen floor. This should be more than enough for a few evenings however, if you have the fire on all day at a high temperature you might run out. Use this purpose built metho dispenser to avoid spills. Please read the instructions for the fire in the dark grey folder. It is very easy to use but read the instructions first.
The turntable is a ‘vintage’ automatic 1980s machine. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY MANUAL OPERATION OF THE TURNTABLE, it will break. Follow the typed instructions on the turntable.
The roll-away bed (if needed) is in the main wardrobe. If the bed is not made up already, clean linen (and a fluid proof mattress protector for young children) can be found in a plastic bag in the main wardrobe.
Please do not dispose of cooking oil by pouring down the kitchen sink. This will block the plumbing!
Garbage night is Tuesday. If you are staying or checking out on Tuesday please leave both bins on the street in front of the letter boxes.
PLEASE DO NOT STAND or (in case of children) jump on the lounge room furniture. It is a valuable 1960's Danish set and restoration costs for splits in the wooden slats are high. If you need to stand on something there is a step ladder in the main bedroom.
PLEASE TURN OFF ALL HEATERS, ELECTRIC BLANKETS and LIGHTS, and LOCK ALL WINDOWS WHEN YOU LEAVE
There is ADSL internet BUT it is not unlimited so please DO NOT use for downloading movies or You Tube. This will mean that the next guests may not have any internet service. The password is annotated on the modem and there is a magnet on the fridge.
Call us on (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) if there is anything else that you need to know.

I work as a Clinical Psychologist and I relax by planning my next holiday (and the one after that). My travel companions are my husband Tony, and our teenage daughter India. When we aren't staying somewhere else, we like to welcome people into our home in inner Sydney, or our holiday house in beautiful Katoomba.
