Dome Sweet Dome

Falling asleep under the stars in this custom-made dome oasis is one of the cosiest feelings in the world. Nestled at the end of a suburban street, the quiet space comfortably sleeps six people and is a short drive away from bushwalks and cafes.

It’s a celestial abode, perfect to use as a base to explore the best of the Blue Mountains or lay around with your loved ones and a bottle of wine. A well-equipped kitchen means home-cooked meals are a breeze. The charming home’s highlight for animal lovers would be Leo - the property’s affectionate dog who adores humans.

Triangle windows and wooden interiors give this place a warn feng shui as the morning light pours in – no surprise that the owners even had monks stop by when it was first built.
