It’s always a joy to be in the mountains & Piccolo is just right place for a mountain holiday.  The nice thing is that all the peace & serenity we take from here does not deplete all that is still

Another gorgeous stay at Piccolo thanks Michael.
Kids adore the place too, especially the rocking chairs and gnomes (although I had promised there were more than 2 has one gone traveling?

I’ve had a wonderful week here.  It’s a great spot it’s really well set up and cozy on those cold nights.  I’d love to be back at some point.
Thanks Christine

Dear Holly and Michael
Thank you for sharing Piccolo with us.  We actually had weekend tickets to the Blue Mountains Music Festival but decided to curl up on the lounge and have a night in on Friday night.
Everything is just perfect
Thanks Tia, Andrew, Ziggy & Zephyr

Very cozy mini break here for a couple of nights.  Made some art in the beautiful bush close to Blackheath.  Ate, drank and slept very well.  Had the fire going in the middle of summer.  Sam misses this place and we can all see why.  Happy days

Super stay here at Piccolo, extreme conditions 46 and then cold, loved my time here and have at least 1/3 of my book written so very productive too!  Fugan (boxer dog) loved his stay and the walks to Leura every day.  Peace and tranquility a refreshes to the soul.

Michael and Holly
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage.  It really is a fantastic place to stay.  It has everything you need away from home.  We had a great time in the Blue Mountains and enjoyed staying at Piccolo and returning to the cottage each day.  The morning and evening on the verandah were very special amongst the trees.  The weather was great, even the very hot days!
We had a very comfortable stay and a great time in the Blue Mountains.
Thanks Brag & Annie

Coming from our new home in Score it was like stepping back in time.  Staying in your cottage & visiting the area.  The bushwalks were great & the choice and quality of restaurants was amazing.
A very relaxing getaway!
Thank you – Kelli-Ann & Jason

Thank you for your charming cottage – perfect getaway from the city!
Awesome décor, good gangster dvd’s, beautiful kitchen, amazing open fire.. Everything prefect.  We have to tear ourselves away from this deck now ….. (to use two sayings) it’s not the size they counts but what’s inside that matters,
Viva Piccolo

Such a cute cottage, full of charming retro kitch touches!  A very well equipped and homely holiday home.  The walk along the National Park trail at Wentworth Falls is highly recommended!  Just so so beautiful!  We had a lovely dinners at Silks Brasserie in Leura.  The next night we made the most of Piccolo and its super cute kitchen cooking dinner in. Thank you for a babulous weekend.  Wish we could stay longer.
Cheers, Conrad + Sophie

To Michael & Holly
Loved it! Low key, quirky, homely & comfortable
Love the closed off from the road.  Feeling a sitting on the verandah among the magnificent trees.
Love the fencing so Seamus could walk around safely.
Good luck in your venture

To Michael & Holly
Preivous comments are true, the picture online do not do your cottage justice.  Love the décor & the homely touches.  Love the gas heater, love the location a hub for local attractions.  Will recommend Piccolo to all we know.
Thanks for a great stay
Paul, Emma & Angel (ruff)

5 Sept 12
The pictures don’t so Piccolo justice!  We kept pinching ourselves the whole time that we were here.
A gorgeous house with beautiful sunlight (especially the verandah from noon) and a wonderful collection of unique homely touches.
We’ ll definitely be back

Dear Mike & Holly, We had a wonderful and relaxing time in your cottage.  It was raining the whole time but we were cozy and happy inside.
Thanks, Kate, Noel & Sadie

15 April 12

Lovely spot, we settled in, in no time.  We had a little visitor in the kitchen.  Weather warm for this time of the year.  Pete found a top lookout – check out Flat Rock near Tablelands road at the turn off where the big pot shop is.
Cheers Heather, Peter & Lucy the poodle

Easter 12

Cold weather was a shock! So we loved the fire and enjoyed our stay.  For a great dog walk try Catalina Park and for tiring out your dog Leura Oval before 10 or after 4 is a great off leash run with lots of lovely social dogs.
Melina, Murray & Jock-Wallace.

11 February 12

Thank you both for our ‘breathing space’ weekend – never long enough for our desires, but a blessing for our needs.
Cheers, Heather-rose & Sophie

8 February 12

Hi Michael & Holly.  What a beautiful cottage and décor, shame about the weather.  Tried to get a fire going but the wood was too wet.  Never mind we had a good time.
Best wishes, David, Robin & Kobe the poodle

4 February 12

We had a lovely escape from the busy world of Sydney.  Lovely property and we feel well rested.  Our spoodle Bella had a great time also, we will be back.
Thanks Hayley & Graham Lloyd

18 January 12

As our trip winds down and we head back to Canada in 2 or 3 days we were glad of a little home away from home.  We loved the hiking and the vistas.
Thanks Daphne, Don, Nova Scotia, Canada

6 January 12

Thanks for a lovely place to stay.  We had a great time catching up with some fantastic friends and enjoying some relaxing coffee on the verandah
Thanks, Damo, Binny & Jacob

3 January 12

What a perfect little cottage!  Thank you for offering your special home to strangers so that we can explore this region with such a welcoming place to return at the end of each day.  We feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Piccolo online, now that we’ve stayed here we can’t imagine our blue mts visit any other way.  We hope to have a second home someday and Piccolo will surely stay in our minds as inspiration.

We loved the Blue Mts, great hiking and vute towns.  But it was also so nice to just sit on the porch with our books and a glass of wine… we can’t promise we’ll be back since we are visiting Australia from so far away, but we will remember our time here so fondly, and will recommend any friends visitng here to look you up!
Thank you again, Michael & Holly!  Have so much fun with this very special ‘little’ cottage

A lovely relaxing

24 December 11

Thank you, Michael & Holly.  We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely cottage.  Beats staying in Sydney, so peaceful with everything we would ever need catered for, love that!  Our dog Elsie 9Kelpie Cross) loved it too.  She got droopy when she saw is packing to leave.  Little does she know where off for more adventures.  It was a little chilly one night so we lit the fire, Awesome.
Cheers, Liz, Michael & Elsie (Adalaide)

Dear Michael & Holly, Thank you for a lovely short notice break, a very comfortable & pleasant stay.
Many thanks, Clare & Joni

27 November 11

Dear Michael, we has a great time at the ‘Piccolo’ and coming from a very flat WA we were blown away at how you can build a house on the edge of a mountain.  After sleeping in the car each night, a decent hot shower and a comfy bed to stretch out in was bliss.  Love what you’ve done with the cottage and ‘Ruby’ the kelpie puppy had an awesome time exploring each room.  The best part of it all was there were no laminated signs telling us to clean this and not touch that etc.  We definitely felt at home.  Thanks for the comfy beds and hot showers.
All the best, Erin, Mandi & Ruby

13 November 11

Thank you for all your lovely comments.  We (Holly, my mum & I) have been here for a week’s holiday.  The new front picket fence has been installed, we are slowly getting Piccolo restored to its former beauty.
Thank you again, Mike

This was our first holiday with our baby and we had a wonderful time.  Piccolo is gorgeous and well thought out.   It made it so easy for all of us. Thanks Mike 7 Holly
Dave, Mindy, Addison & Shelby

October 11

Hi Mike, This is a very well equipped house.  I think you should make more of the kitchen & the supplies, having things like herbs, spices makes holiday cooking enjoyable.

Betty says thank you for having me,  I loved it!

October 11

We were so warm & toasty on this cold long weekend with the fire, wood & heater.
Thanks a lot, Jin & Warren

September 11

Michael, Thanks for the wonderful stay in this beautiful little house.   From the moment I walked in it was like I had been bitten by the relaxation monster and all the worries of the world fell away.  I only wish we could have stayed longer in the beautiful part of the world.
Terry & Sue

August 11

We have had a fantastic time! Thank you.  Our daughter kept on walking around the house saying ‘fun fun fun’ so I think she had a great time too!  House is gorgeous, love the kitchen!  Was also a nice surprise to find that when we went to visit the Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens this year that it’s now free entry!
Thanks again, The Ross Family

August 11

To Holly & Michael, Thank you for a wonderful and restful stay.  We had a great stay with our two pooches, Leroy & Peggy.  Enjoyed the open fire, snuggled up on the lounge, while the dogs didn’t move from in front of the fire!  We felt like we were in a home away from home, enjoying your60’s inspired cottage!  We will def be back, but it will have to be longer, as that was the only prob with our stay!
Cheers, Mel, Jimmy, Leroy & Peggy

August 11

Holly & Mike, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as we have before and expect to again.  Since visiting you last we have noticed some changes which have greatly added to our comfort.  On our last visit we were inspired after long debate to get a French bulldog regarding your books and artwork on display at the time.
We did not bring our little friend with us this time as we were honeymooning and couldn’t remember if you yard was fenced as we know we can not take her shopping with us is town.
We look forward to returning again with our French hulldog in tow.
Joland & Gregory

27 July 11

A well needed and much enjoyed staying in your little unpretentiously chic cottage, warmed by the fire (and a little help from the gas heater) amd relaxed by fresh and clear cold mountain air.  It was great to be welcomed after a day of aimless wanderings, I felt cocooned…

July 11

Dear Holly & Michael
Thank you for such a lovely stay.  We felt so comfortable and at home.  We came on a girls trip to the Blue Mountains to help one of our best friends plan her wedding.  We love Leura mall!  After experiencing the local delights, we returned home and sat in front of the fire with a cheese platter and a glass of red and brainstormed away for ideas to make the upcoming wedding the perfect day.  The ambiance of the cottage and the roasting fire make the perfect environment to come up with creative ideas.  We don’t want to leave!
Thank you Piccolo, we will definitely be back!
Joanna, Victoria & Bang Bang

What a lovely long weekend spent bushwalking and sitting in front of the fire.  And being able to bring along our little dog Munchie made it so much better, a real home away from home.
Thank you – Lauren, Michael + Munchie the Chihuahua

20 June 11

Feeling much gratitude for our time at Piccolo.  We planned to go out and see the sights but opted to stay in and sit by the fire.  Cookbooks inspired us to make a delicious baked dinner.  Enjoyed watching a flock of cockatoos eat lunch on the trees out front.  Our four year old son slept soundly by the fire with a smile on his face.
Thank you Piccolo – Tara, Stuart and Leo

17 June 11

We had a lovely relaxing stay at Piccolo.  The place is nicely decorated and very cozy.  The weather was totally miserable all week so we were forced to stay in front of the fire, eat yummy food and drink red wine.  Our dog felt right at home.  It would have been good if the backyard was fenced off though. (Garden is now fenced! Mike)
Thank you Elena, Dave & Kodiak

12 June 11

Best long weekend ever! This place rocks

Thanks so much, Julie, Mark & Grace

We all had a wonderful time staying at the cottage.  Fantastic place.  Will definitely be back

Good time at Piccolo – Justin, Kelly and Maya

27th April 11

Piccolo, a nice historic cottage in lovely Leura.  We loved the open fire.  Cool retro setup.  We went for a walk to the 6 foot track to nellies glenn, well worth the sore calves.  The rain didn’t really stop while we were here, but we had a great time indoors, the dvd’s and other stuff kept us entertained.

Thanks Jamie & Sophie

23rd April – Easter Weekend

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the cottage.  Decorated to perfection with an abundance of interesting books, magazines and movies to enjoy.  The candles and fire place were a romantic touch along with cozy bed.  Our kitty Nench enjoyed the stayequally as much and we thank you for letting us bring her! We will be back.

12th March 11

Dear Holly & Mike – We come from Germany to celebrate the marriage of our daughter to a very handsome Australian man.  Now we rest a little bit here in the mountains from all the festivities with the whole family.  This is the perfect place to relax and to enjoy the beautiful mountains, although it had some rain.  We thank you for the lovely memory we take with us to germany (Stuttgart)

With best wishes, Angela & Hans

28th Feb 11

I have travelled from the other side of the world to stay here and haven’t been disappointed.  Michael and Holly have a lovely home with great décor.  The scenery close to is some of the best in the world, fantastic cliffs and waterfalls.  I walked to the Blue Gum forest in the Grose Valley.  A very memorable walk (especially the snake!) I can guarantee to return – I hope sooner rather than later

Peter, Cotherstone, England

26th Feb 11

Piccolo!!! What a discovery!  It’s the cottage of our dreams.  The photos online don’t do it justice.  The retro-kitsch was exactly to my liking and the books kept us entertained for hours.  I can’t believe that these gorgeous mountains and your gorgeous cottage are just a 1.5hr drive from Sydney!  We’ll definitely keep coming back and we’ll tell all our family and friends.. Actually maybe we won’t, I’d like to keep this place for ourselves!

Thanks v much for having us, the batteries are recharged for another week in the big smoke!

Christine & Chris – from Stanmore

21nd Feb 11

Dog friendly and without chintz! Couldn’t be more perfect.  Thank you very much.  We will all be back!

Dear Mike & Holly

We had a wonderful stay and was grateful to escape the 40C temperatures in Sydney.

Lovely place, will definitely come again, Laura + Ben

2nd Feb 11

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely cottage.  We all had a very restful stay.  Enjoyed waking up to the sound of birds.  Even though the rest of Sydney was baking we were able to cool down from the lovely breeze.  Especially sitting in those wonderful rocking chairs.

Mr. Darcy also enjoyed his stay, he spent a bit of time on the veranda either with a bone or snoring!! He was very relaxed.

Thank you again!! Grey, Linda + Mr Darcy

24th Jan 11

We think your cottage is perfectly decorated.  You guys have awesome taste!
We had a very cool stay her.  The energy was just what we needed to escape the city chaos for 48 hours.  We’d love to come again.  Thank you for putting together such a thoughtful & comfortable place for guests.

Warmly Frankie & Matt

8th Jan 11

Had a lovely stay in Piccolo, very quiet and peaceful.  Comfy bed & hot showers, with plenty of amenities close by.  A sunny Saturday made the views amazing, Sunday rainy and misty but atmospheric.  A lovely place to eat and drink on the balcony

We will come again, Norma & Sarah


Had a lovely stay! A great place to see it the New Year away from the City

Many thanks Andrew,  Mark & Spechs


Thank you for seven lovely days at Piccolo.  We wanted to spend Christmas in the mountains and yearned for a cosy cottage that was pet friendly and close to Leura and Katoomba, so Piccolo suited us perfectly.  We loved spending Christmas eve in the house and enjoyed the local mountain communities and going on bushwalks through Leura Cascades and Wentworth Falls.  I think we experienced the full range of seasons, from cold foggy days to real scorchers!

Thank you Aislinn, Jamie and Ulysses

20/11/2010 – 23/12/2010

It was truely a pleasure and a privilege to stay here in Piccolo cottage for 33 days with my Golden Retriever, Jonesy.  We had a wonderful time!  I did a multitude of glorious bushwalks the favourites being; Wentworth Falls & the Valley of the Waters;  The Three Sisters, Katmooba; The Pool of Siloam, Leura; Govetts Leap tp Pulpit Rock, Blackheath and the Grand Canyon, Blackheath.  Piccolo cottage was a very welcoming place to stay, colourful, eclectic and full of comfort and charm.  Thank you so much for a very special time and space in my lift… I will remember it fondly!

Blessings Jana & Jonesy dog


Thank you so much for the opportunity to share your mountain retreat where we found those experiences we most value; peace & relaxation; a holiday where Gus can feel @ home; accessibility to all the necessities; an appreciation of the arts and a glimpse of those aspects of design dear to the hearts and minds of the retreat owners.  This is a privilege we treasure.

Yvonne, Alwyn & Gus the Beagle


We had a lovely stay, especially loved the rocking chairs on the veranda, and the colours of the bed-cover.  Our dog was happy too on the trampoline bed.  Many thanks for a peaceful, relaxing place to stay.

Kind regards  Jill & Warren


Mario & I thought the house felt lie a home.  We both have relaxed immediately while being here.  After our beautiful days out it was lovely to come back to Piccolo have a hot shower and have a restful night in.  Hope to stay in the future.

All the best Mario & Kay


We had a beautiful stay!  Loved the interior… want to go home and redecorate.  The heater is fab, as is the lovely shower, great kitchen & restful verandah!  We only wish the bed was bigger as we are both tall.  Had a great ride thru wildrides & had a relaxing facial at the Yindi day spa ahhh.  Now back home to the 2 kids and our crazy wold.

Thanks for an amazing weekend, Brad & Bianca


Piccolo was lovely. Everything there we needed. Very cosy and lots to look at.

kindest regards, Leah


Thanks for a wonderful little escape from the city. We both loved dipping into the eclectic selection of books – Italian and Spanish cuisine for me and the greats of boxing for Al, very gender specific. It’s a gorgeous little house with real charm and with.

Nicole & Al


Thank you for a lovely space. The cottage is cute, cosy and very inspirational. We feel rested, calm and happy. Love the floorboards.

Gary & David


I feel nurtured and quilted by the peacefulness, generosity, and creative energy ‘Piccolo’ cottage exudes. I don’t want to leave!!
Thank you,


We loved our cosy retreat in the mountains. Everything was perfect. We will definitely tell friends and family. Would love to come back!

Love Damien & Meg xo


Nice artwork! A perfect escape!

Vanessa & Jonas


We had a great time during our stay here. It was very relaxing and cosy. Despite the cold weather outside this cottage kept us warm with the heater, fire place, and electric blanket!

Would love to come back here again.

Thank you!   Yen & Young


Enjoyed our stay. Very cosy at night. Has everything we needed. Lovely little bit of history and love the creaking floor boards.

Regards,  Catherine & Matt


Very comfortable, electric blanket, heater and fire needed and used non-stop. Shower had great pressure and lots of heat. Great place to read and relax.

Craig & Carolyn

Very relaxing time had by myself, Sonia, and our Golden Retriever Scarlett. Would be lovely to put a little dog wire either side of the veranda to allow doggies to roam around the backyard. Otherwise, Piccolo is great.

Tim, Sonia, & Scarlett Rose


A really charming cottage, great for a weekend away. Although we do no have a canine companion (stupid city apartment rules!) it is easy to see how nice it has been up here for us and how it would be for a dog. We really enjoyed the location, climate and the lovely little design details throughout the house.

Thanks to an adorable little book we found amongst your collection I think there may be a French bulldog in our future and we would look forward to returning and sharing this experience with him.

Thank you,  Jessica & Gregory


Dear Piccolo, Where do we start?! So awesome. Great job on the interior, a very nice touch set against the regular mountains’ world. Couch is so comfy, and the kitchen a pleasure to cook in. Artwork really makes all the difference. Sleep ins are easy with the extra warm bed and it was fun to open the window and watch the rain together.

We hiked through Gordons Fall, deep caved at Jenolan, and ate well at Common Ground Café.

We are sans child but can’t wait to bring him up here, he will love the fire!

Can’t wait to get back up here, we even talked about leaving the big smoke and doing up our own little Piccolo!

Love Kial & Nate

Our Piccolo diary…

Day 1 – woke up relaxed and happy being so far away form the city. Carly is going for a massage to Lilianfells, Tina the dog is snoozing on the balcony and I’m off to find the perfect lamb shanks to slow cook for dinner!!

Fire on now, 1 hour till dinner and the place smells amazing!! Where’s the wine….

Tina is now virtually unconscious in front of the fire – as am I, and Carly. Bed? I think so…

Day 2 – so relaxed I can’t be bothered writing anything. More wine…

Andy, Carly, & Tina


Utterly lovely weekend away. Thank you so much! Cottage is perfect for two.

Ness & Deb


Thanks for squeezing us in at the last moment. We loved the décor – very cute, made us feel right at home!

Jes & Marina


Great little cottage, perfect location. Electric blanket very much needed! Thoroughly recommended!!



Hi, Love the cottage – perfect for Valentine’s Day weekend away from the city.

Susie & Dominic, Sydney


Thank you for giving us the chance to live in this lovely cottage which keeps us from rain and cold outside. Your wide collection of books and decorations help spend our time here interestingly.

Once settled in, Bonnie and I just loved your cottage. Best bed – so comfortable. Heaps of bird life and lots for Bonnie to peruse from the veranda. So many cookbooks, so little time.

Thank you,  Jennifer & Bonnie (woof)


Piccolo is a beautiful cottage, we and our 4 footers has a wonderful 3 days here, everything so clean and warm.

Thank you,  Susan, Wayne, Sophie and Shiloh

Thank you, we really enjoyed your beautiful cottage. The flowers were just lovely!

Thanks,  The Laws  x

We had a great 3 days, everything was just right. Loved the cookbooks, and all the interesting little touches. So glad we stumbled across ‘Piccolo’ while searching for accommodation.  Being able to have our dogs with us took the worry out of taking a break for a few days.

We loved it, will be back soon.

Thank you,  The Kearys

Had a great stay! House is gorgeous.

Cheers, Lisa & Brad

Thank you for letting us use your lovely house. Sorry our white dogs malted their white fur on the dark floor!

Regards, Amealie & Ebuad


Dear Piccololis, thank you for sharing your home with us, it has reminded us how sweet life is when you escape the rat race.

Thanks again, Cara, Howie, Chester & May


Judy and I had a really relaxing time with our dogs, Coco and Romala. Lovely little house and perfect to hide in on a cold, wet day.  I hope you don’t mind that I tweaked the TV, STB, and DVD to fix aspect ratios, colour and quality in general. It’s what I do.

All the best, Ihen & Judy Burrows


Thanks for the fantastic time at your great little house. We had so much fun here we didn’t see any of the Blue Mountains…  Cool artwork and great atmosphere, we spent most of our time playing inside.

See you again soon, Duncan & Lauren
