About

Located 5 minutes from Kosciuszko National Park, Forty Nine Post Office Lane is ideally situated in the heart of Thredbo Valley, accessible to Jindabyne, Mount Kosciuszko, Australia’s premier ski resorts (5 minutes to Perisher’s Ski Tube, 15 minute drive to Thredbo), iconic local dining experiences and a myriad of outdoor summer and winter activities.

Designed for friends and families, this home encompasses luxury, comfort and practicality ensuring every guest, big and little, has a memorable stay.

For the cooking enthusiast, Forty Nine Post Office Lane has a fabulous outdoor entertaining space offering an unrivalled living and dining experience. Enjoy cooking in the outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, charcoal grill, fridge and sink with dining and entertaining for 12 guests featuring a generous lounge area surrounding the outdoor firepit.

Our Snowy Mountains home has been a ‘project in waiting’ for some 17 years, finally built in 2017. Together with our architect Vince Myson and Jamie Durie (his amazing vision for our most recent addition; a new outdoor living space), we have achieved our dream and created a wonderful family holiday home.

We take great pleasure in sharing our home with friends, family and visitors alike and hope, as a guest, you love it as much as we do.

Amazing property, very luxurious and modern ,clean ,spacious. Kitchen very well equipped with everything we needed. The fire pit was very handy, kids loved it. Kids also loved the bedroom with bunk beds. Truly 5 star.

We had a great time, thank you .

What a fantastic place to stay! Gorgeous setting with a beautiful and very well presented house. For our group of friends, it was the perfect setting for a few days getaway in the Snowys. We used the outdoor setting every night, jumping between the pizza oven and easy-to-use charcoal bbq (which is actually a really efficient grill). The fire pit settled us into each night. Inside, the standouts are the kitchen and the bedrooms, which is just how it should be to make holidays fun and refreshing.

I took a group of 12 friends down in February and we had the best week. The house is amazing and has everything you could need. The new outdoor living space is perfect for the cool summer nights, the pizza oven was an absolute hit! I couldn’t recommend this place enough and will definitely be back next year!

Luisa is so accommodating and was most helpful in recommending some of the best local places to eat and shop. Thank you for all your help, we can’t wait for our next stay!

“Had an amazing stay at Luisa’s property. Luisa was a wonderful host from the moment we booked, contacting us regularly in the lead up to the stay to make sure we would have everything we need for our holiday. The house had so much space, everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was extremely well equipped which made staying at home really enjoyable. Kids had a great time with the games and Christmas tree. Didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to visit again”.

“Fabulous location close to Crackenback farmhouse restaurant, Wildbrumby schnapps house, Crackenback resort and a short drive to Thredbo. Very well appointed and comfortable accommodation”.

– Kim, November 2020

“Thank you again for such an amazing weekend – we have just returned back to the city grind after spending 3 wonderful nights at “Forty Nine”. You have created a truly world class property surrounded by such a special part of our diverse Country. The Snowy Mountains evokes an almost spiritual smorgasbord of sights, smells and sounds with this property weaved seamlessly within its unique fabric. Geographically placed far enough from civilisation that it feels like you have truly departed yet within striking distance to all the major highlights that litter the area. Every detail is well thought out from the heated floors, bedding configuration, high tech appliances, well stocked kids play zones, open fire and the embroidered towels. Returning to the house after a frosty hike and moody weather was just perfect”.

“If you are thinking of booking – stop reading and lock it in – you will not be disappointed”.
– Andrew, Sydney, October 2020

“We loved Forty Nine Post Office Lane. The location was superb and the house was stunning and well stocked with everything we needed. A highlight was seeing the kangaroos and deer right at our doorstep. A perfect place for a weekend away with friends”.

– Leonie, October 2020

“It was an amazing property. Very easy to find because google maps takes you straight to the house. The property was very clean, loaded with all the comforts required such as board games, card games, heating, kitchen utensils, and bathroom amenities. We enjoyed our stay very much and looking forward to coming again next year”

– Shvet, Sydney, October 2020

We had a fabulous stay at this property. This property accommodated the needs of our group of two families really well (7 kids in total). It had loads of room so that we weren’t on top of each other, a well appointed kitchen, fabulous bunk room and games room and loads of outdoor space for the kids to run around. The kids also loved seeing the kangaroos and deer on the property. This property is in a fabulous location – 20 minutes drive to Thredbo and 15 minutes to Jindabyne. Communicating with the owner was also seamless. This was a fabulous find. Would be back in a heartbeat”.

– Cath, Sydney, October 2020

What a wonderful home away from home!! Entertaining was a breeze, kids were always occupied, kitchen fully equipped these are just a few highs of this amazing property.

“We will be definitely rebooking next year and telling all our friends about it”.
– Zac, Sydney, September 2020

The children were not to be seen, they loved loved the kids bedroom. With all the entertainment they needed – they had a blast. We will definitely staying here again 100%”.

– Silvana, August 2020

A beautiful location, stunning house, quality fixtures and fittings… All the things you can see in the photos… However what you can’t see… Is the extra details… The extra effort, the thoughts, the intention, those things that makes you glad you’re away from home and wish it was your home.. Those subtle touches that make all the difference. – Beds like you wish you had at home – Carpet deep enough to sleep on, (according to dick. 21 paramedic in training!) – Good showers, actually I heard great at least twice… – Simple well thought through touches. Like the window that aligns with your head in the bath. – All the small things are done, and ready for you to kick back and relax… A great stay is assured not because of the detail captured in all the pics, or the aforementioned touches, accessories and attributes. But… Yes there is a but… The owner Luisa, makes sure it is perfect, and when life doesn’t go quite right or even too right, she pulls out all stops to make sure you get to live, enjoy and spend time as though you are in her closest circle. Thank you for sharing a beautiful, a stunning location and spaces and you as equally representing people”. Enjoy one and all

– Jim & Stephanie, Sydney, July 2020
