Built in 1902, Kurrara Historic Guest House is the original house of the Coomonderry Estate, nestled on a quiet corner between Katoomba and Leura and surrounded by stunning cold-climate gardens. 

Current owners, Evalyn and Bob recently completed significant refurbishment that includes a woodlined yoga studio out the back   

The studio is filled with natural light and warmed by insolation from the Eastern and Western wall length windows.  Thoroughly insulated roof, walls and floor reduce the costs of heating and cooling by energy efficient reverse cycle air conditioning that are only needed on really cold or hot days.  A beautiful ceiling bay window sky light has been built from floor-boards recylced from some of the original building.  

Bob is meticulous about installing and maintaining high efficiency LED lighting throughout, and most of the water fixtures are efficient.   A large water tank has been installed to keep the leafy surrounds lush and inviting.

All Food waste is used for two large worm farms, and Evalyn and Bob carefully clean and recycle all the single use food packaging used by guests. Paper, cardboard and soft plastics are also recycled.  

Evelyn has created and styled the charming, comfortable rooms with hand made curtains, pelmets and soft furnishings to help to insulate the living spaces.  The communal areas are filled with old worldly comfort and character. Located close to town, on the local bus routes, and close to cliff top walks, Kurrara Historic Guest House is an ideal place for guests coming by public transport or on foot.

Booking direct via the Kurrarra Historic website means that precious resources stay in the Blue Mountains, where people live and work to protect this precious World Heritage Area.

Evalyn and Bob look forward to your visit.
