About Us

In 2022, Annette wrote the book OUT OF THE BLUE. A 100% independent guide to local gems and experiences in the Blue Mountains - beyond the awesome natural walks.

In 2023, Annette and her husband Gavin launched OUT OF THE BLUE Blue Mountains experiences. From a base of a private rental of their guesthouse, No.14 Lovel St, they'll arrange itineraries for small groups of likeminded people. These might be bushwalking or adventure sports, or foodie weekends, or any combination of the huge range of experiences featured in the book.

No.14 Lovel St is perfect for extended family & friends getaways, small business workshops, team bonding accommodation, wellness & creative retreats.. get in touch with Gavin to start planning the perfect Blue Mountains stay.

But that's not all! We got to thinking and decided to add special Family Stay dates for No.14 individual guesthouse bookings. When not being used by one large group, No.14 guesthouse bookings are usually adults only. For school holiday periods, we're going to select dates throughout the year where you can bring your kids (5yrs and up) and share the house with other family groups.

For regular bookings at any time - adults only - please go to our main No.14 Lovel St website. Best price is always guaranteed for direct bookings.
