“A stay at Varenna is a body and spirit relax.”
Staying at any of the homes in the Whispers group is always the best. Nothing is left to chance, your every need is not only met but exceeded. If you want to enjoy some excellent downtime with all your creature comforts looked after then these are the homes to enjoy.
Response from the owner It's always a delight to welcome my repeat guests back to Mountain Whispers as they make their way around each property and then deciding which one is next on their agenda. Thanking you for your lovely review Steve and sincerely look forward to welcoming you back. Take care, Lorraine
“Comfort and luxury making family travel easy”
The location of Varenna was ideal for walking to the village and transport around the blue mountains. We loved the space of a house to let the family spread out. We were warm and comfortable for the whole stay.
Response from the owner It was lovely meeting and welcoming you Ann, Chris and family to my beautiful Varenna. So happy you all enjoyed your stay and sincerely look forward to welcoming you all back very soon. Take care, Lorraine
“All we imagined and more!”
My girlfriend and I were looking for a relaxing, romantic weekend away to wind down from work. This cottage and the surrounding towns are perfect for this. We arrived after a long drive from Canberra quite late at night, this was the perfect cottage to 'come home to', with the heater on, light music playing and port readily decanted - what a relaxing way to finish a heavy drive! We loved the fireplace, the kitchen, the bathrooms, everything was magical. It could handle three couples easily, but it didn't feel too big for just us two either. Obviously we didn't use the house to it's fill potential. The main street of Leura is literally a 2 minute walk away, which is excellent for morning breakfasts or perusing the shops. it is an eight dollar cab ride to Katoomba, which has more pubs and bars. (We recommend the station bar for drinks and pizza.) The added options you can have with your booking are great deffs recommend. Everything you need from towels and bath robes to the first mornings breakfast are provided. The decor, style and finish of the cottage is everything everyone claims so I wont bang on there. Everything was cleaned perfectly, I even looked for dust on shelves and couldn't find any. Overall, don't second guess this place. It is worth every penny.
Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely review of Varenna Tom, I sincerely look forward to welcoming you to another Mountain Whispers properties very soon. Until then, take care and with warmest regards, Lorraine
“Varenna. 100% luxury.”
Lorraine has created authentic heritage accomodation,with modern facilities.Everything necessary for a quiet relaxing holiday has been provided.Shopping and restaurants only a short stroll away. Try the In House Dining ! We can't wait to return.
Response from the owner Thank you for your wonderful review of Varenna and my services Lorna. It was a pleasure welcoming you and so glad you experienced our in-house dining. No need to leave the front door - perfect. Looking very forward to welcoming you back very soon. With warmest regards, Lorraine
“A touch of indulgence”
Our stay was wonderful from the moment we walked through the door. The ambience was set by the scent throughout the house, the flowers and the music. Everything we needed or could have wanted was provided. Dinner cooked by our private chef on Saturday evening was brilliant. Food was superb but the luxury of not having to venture out in the cold, have a few glasses of champagne and truly relax was exactly what we all needed. I would highly commend 'Varenna' to your attention. Pure indulgence yet at an affordable price. This is our second visit and we will be back again!
Response from the owner Hi Tracey, it was a pleasure to have welcomed you back to Varenna and having had the experience of the in-house chef and champagne and loving it, was simply great. Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and I sincerely look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future. With heartfelt thanks and warmest regards, Lorraine :-)
“Perfect House - Perfect Location”
The house was sensational, location absolutely perfect and the owner a pleasure to deal with! Cosy fireplace, canopy beds, warm living areas and fantastic kitchen. Loved all the extra touches too. Chocolates, fluffy robes, breakfast supplies to name just a few. Our group of 6 ladies were able to completely relax as the house did not want for anything. Dinner on night one was at the Leura Garage a few doors up. Our 2nd night was pure luxury - having an in house chef and waiter spoil us. Food was delicious and waiter very discreet. The location of the house enabled us to explore Leura on foot with the Mall being a quick stroll away and the stunning Everglades Gardens a lovely afternoon walk. A weekend staying at Varenna left us feeling refreshed and relaxed and we will be back again. Five star all the way!
Response from the owner Thanking you for your lovely review Debbie. So glad all the girls loved their getaway from their hubbies and families. We lead all such busy lives and giving you all some much pampering is all part of the Mountain Whispers service. Hope to welcome you back very soon. With warmest regards, Lorraine
“Magic - a house of beauty, warmth and luxury all rolled into one”
A house full of charm that as you step through the front door you are instantly transferred back into a time of elegance. A perfect home to base yourself in as you explore the wonderful mountain area and very central to the Leura buzz of shops and restaurants. Definitely, try the in house massage it is perfect finish to a decadent stay away. Make sure though you give yourself the downtime to truly enjoy the relaxing warmth and beauty of this stunning property.
Response from the owner Thanking you for your lovely review Emma. So pleased you enjoyed the in-house pampering and all that Varenna had to offer. Look forward to welcoming you back sometime very soon. Until then, take care and with warmest regards, Lorraine
“Peace and tranquility abound in this beautiful cottage”
Everything was as promised and yet more. Quality of food and beverages provided was superior... Plentiful breakfast and afternoon tea provisions supplied. The home was welcoming, relaxed and romantic atmosphere the moment you stepped through the door. The cottage was clean and in mostly good order. Only issue was that the BBQ plate had rusted out and needed to be replaced (couldn't cook breakfast in the sunshine) Also the shower in the main bathroom had very poor pressure and made it difficult to wash out shampoo from long hair. These were the only hiccups to a perfect weekend.
Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments Kim & Tracey. I will look straight into the BBQ hotplate, it's usually a case of it needed yet another cleaner, as it definitely isn't rusted through. The pressure in the shower is reduced due to water savers which is all part of our sustainability mission. I will revisit the shower heads and see if perhaps an alternative option can be found, as my main focus is guests as my priority, whilst still doing our part for the environment. Many thanks once again and hope to welcome you back in the near future, with kindest regards, Lorraine
I wanted somewhere special to propose to my beautiful Naomi. I was not disappointed in staying at this absolutely lovely home, which made the perfect setting for us. Everything was just done right. music playing when we entered and all the amenities are first class. The weather was showery, but that made it even nicer, and Leura mall is just a short stroll with some great restaurants and shops. We spent 3 days in the home and thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
Response from the owner Congratulations John & Naomi...a proposal, how wonderful! I'm truly blessed to have guests propose at my properties, which then forms a part of their wonderful memories into the future. Thank you for sharing your lovely comments with me and on-line and I truly welcome the opportunity to open the doors to Varenna or any of my other properties to you once again. Until then, with sincerest regards and all the very best for your Wedding plans.
“Very good location, quality of stay”
The hosue was very well appointed and very comfortable. Easy proximity to Leura shops. Rail noise though loud was quite after about midnight.
