A little bit about Sophia’s

Sophia’s is a traditional Blue Mountains style weatherboard house that sits beautifully in an elevated position providing open vistas and a quiet, charming ambience. Located on a quite side street that runs parallel to the Leura Mall, the location in Jersey Avenue is perfectly positioned to be close to everything.

The Leura village centre, with it’s collection of restaurants, cafés, unique shops, galleries and wonderful spring flowering cherry trees is just an easy 10 minute walk. In the other direction the start of many special bush walks and cliff top lookouts are only 5 minutes away. In addition the Katoomba/Leura Trolley bus service stops at the end of the road, ready to whisk you off to all the local tourist attractions, including the famous Echo Point and Three Sisters.

The large, comfortable house has lots of areas to relax in, both inside and out. From the wide front veranda you can look above the National Park towards the neighbouring village of Katoomba, giving you a lovely open view and a perfect spot for an evening tipple. The garden at the back offer plenty of space for children to play in and a BBQ and deck to enjoy those summer days in true Australian fashion

The large lounge area give everyone plenty of space to relax and enjoy each others company, play games, watch movies or curl up by the fire with a good book. The separate dining area provides seating for 13 – enough for the biggest of Family Feasts and also has a log burner to give that extra touch of ambience.

The property also has a children’s nook with a TV and Play Station 3 to keep those younger members of the group entertained and having fun.

Whatever the season the house has something to enjoy, be it the veranda, deck and garden in the summer or the wood fires and deep leather loungers in the cooler months, catching up with family and friends will always be pleasant.

With Log fires, high ceilings and wooden floors Sophia’s has lots of charm and character, yet with new appliances, soft furnishings and furniture you also have contemporary, convenient features with a hint of luxury.

Sophia’s of Leura – your Blue Mountains Holiday Cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a lovely few days in your house. Seven of us ran the UTA 50km in this beautiful location and this was such a lovely house to return to. We loved the fire. Thank you for providing so many lovely touches and leaving the fridge so well stocked for us.

Great house and location for our large group of 3 families.

  • 5 of 5

House was great for our group of 13, with kids loving the bunks. We appreciated the open fire and complimentary bacon and eggs. Would stay again.

Loved it! Homely, clean, warm and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Sophia’s of Leura. The house was gorgeous our group all loved it. Spacious and light, yet warm and welcoming. The breakfast hamper was amazing and enjoyed by all as was the open fireplace. Being close to the town centre and bush walks was wonderful. We’ll definitely be back and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the mountains.

The communication beforehand was fantastic.

Beautiful location...

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 4 of my friends recently. This house was so perfect for our needs that we've booked again for next year. Clean, spacious, quiet and an easy walk to the shops. Hayley provided a wonderfully well-stocked fridge/pantry for breakfast as well. Only one draw-back: fly screens needed on the bedroom windows and french doors leading to the back deck. Other than that it was perfect!

Great stay at Sophia's, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

A group of 9 of us (friends) stayed at Sophia's for the weekend and had a great time.

there is plenty for a group of this size and enough beds to accommodate everyone.

The property is well maintained and clean.

The supplies left for breakfast made for an easy first morning.

It is very central to Leura and any Blue Mtns escape.

The owners are v responsive with any queries you may have and accommodated us extremely well.

Thanks for a great stay

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This house was excellent for our family of 13 including 5 young children. There was plenty of room for the children to play with a nice, large backyard. House is located in a wonderful area with bush walks and Leura Mall all close by. Visiting in winter, we appreciated the central heating.

Highly recommended!
