What a Magical place to stay. Comfortable accommodation with everything we needed. We had such a fabulous time exploring the Blue Mountains. So many beautiful bush walks. Such a peaceful place with beautiful gardens.
Thanks for sharing Cloud9. We hope we can return one day.

Cloud 9 is a Fantastic spot with stunning views!!!

My wife and l absolutely loved just sitting out on the deck or even while cooking breakfast in the kitchen and looking out into the mountains and watching the birds play; extremely peaceful.
Right in the heart of Echo Point and very close to walking trails if you love a bush walk/hike. The house was well maintained and had everything you required for just a short or extended stay. Highly recommend Dalia's Retreat and with other apartments in the house to choose from, I would definitely come back with friends and/or family.

Thank you Dalia

Dear Brendon,Loved reading your great feedback.So happy you both enjoyed your stay with us. It would be a pleasure to see you again especially with your friends.Best wishesDalia

Enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights at Dalia’s retreat. Relaxing, energising and satisfying. Perfect location, access to so many nearby walks. Warm and comfortable with wonderful support from Dalia if needed. We would return without hesitation.
Many thanks

Dear Justin,How lovely to receive your kind review. I'm so pleased you had 3 nights here to appreciate this magnificent property. Many guests only book 1 night and then say they wished they could have stayed longer. The view, the enchanting and peaceful Astrology gardens, the healing energy of the land that dissolves tension, the many bushwalks from Echo Point + 3 Sisters of course and the cosy hydronic heating to come back to during the colder months.It was a pleasure to meet you and I look forward to hosting you again one day.Warmest regardsDalia

My partner and I had the most magical stay at Dalia’s Garden of the Stars studio. The view absolutely has to be seen to be believed!! We had the most peaceful, beautiful night under the stars, watching the sun set with cheese and wine from a local deli in Katoomba. Dalia is super friendly and helpful and we had a great chat to her during our stay. We left re-energised and 10/10 would stay again! ❤️

Dear Catherine, So lovely to meet you and your man at the house. It was a special night and you both looked so peaceful on the sunlounges enjoying your wine and gazing at the beautiful valley view. It's such a tranquil setting and am pleased you took full advantage of it.Look forward to host you in the future and wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy together.Best wishesDalia

My family and I had the absolute pleasure of visiting "Dalia's Blue Mountain Retreat" . We had only enough time in our calendar for a 24hr stay and boy were we heart broken on departure. I would advise anyone to take a min two days, possibly 3 out of the schedule to allow yourself the treat that this is.

We stayed in cloud 9. With its spacious and luxurious rooms and jaw dropping views you won't be disappointed . Ok... so that's arrivals out of the way, let me get straight to the point. Yes this is an air BnB . Hold on. This is a 5* retreat away from the noise of everyday bedlam. From the moment of arrival we felt a certain calm . The rooms are well presented, painted and decorated in white . Cooling and calm. Attention to detail can be seen on every turn. Everything you need for your short stay is here including parking at the door .

On our overnighter Dalia was on hand to discuss local visitor attractions. However, where Dalia really comes into her own is her presence. A beautiful lady with an aura to match . The rest I will leave for you to enjoy the experience.

Dear Barry,It was such a joy to have Irish visitors come stay at the Retreat. Such a pleasure to meet you and your family. I'm so happy that you appreciated and sensed the beautiful healing energy here and loved the view from the deck of Cloud9. I'm sure Sarah will visit again one day.Travel safeBest wishesDalia

THE BEST VIEWS FROM OUR PRIVATE DECK - STERLING MANOR many thanks for sharing your wonderful retreat in such a "blessed" place. Immense gratitude for your warmth and welcoming details everywhere. Most beautiful place I've ever been to. Congratulations and best regards.

Thank you for such a delightfully presented retreat. This space feels so welcoming and homely. Just lovely.
Best regards

We were 3 friends on a girls getaway in Sterling Manor.

Dear Ana and Alice,Loved reading your kind words and to know that Sterling Manor gave back so much more than you envisaged. The house holds so much love, hence the homely feel, and mentioned by many guests. Previously owned by the well-known Astrologer Richard Sterling for almost 50yrs before I purchased it in 2017. He opened the house to musical nights where he would play his grand piano and other friends from the Musical Society joined in with their instruments. I can only imagine this and other events staged here with his Television friends like Burt and Patty Newton, Don Lane, Bill Collins and of course Ita Buttrose would have been alot of fun. I'm happy you loved the atmosphere and enjoyed your girls getaway.Hope to see you next time.Warmest regardsDalia

Well what a Find !
Truly lovely place to stay. Sterling Manor is elegant and very comfortable.  Felt like we were on top of the world and close to the heavens. The gardens are so well curated as is the house. Thank you for the respite and catch up that we two sisters enjoyed.

Spectacularly beautiful and peaceful Location.
This was my second visit to Cloud 9 and an overnight catchup with an old friend. It's a wonderful space, filled with the changing colours of the escarpment and the stunning beauty of the Valley. The spring gardens - a glorious array of colour everywhere you look. If you need a quiet place to restore your Soul, meditate and be renewed this is it! You can feel the healing energy and it literally fills your heart with JOY. The sunrise was beautiful. We were grateful to have an engaging and enlightening conversation with Dalia. My heart and soul is full. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home, Dalia. It's enchanting and magical!
I love everything about it.

Dear Jodie,How wonderful to have met you and your friend this time around. It was a pleasure showing you around the Spring gardens in spectacular colour with so many otherworldly flowers; Lilacs, cherry blossoms, colourful Rhododendron and Lily of the Valley to name but a few. The gardens and view add so much more to the holiday experience. Look forward to your next visit.
