Have a seat, relax and take a deep breath. You have arrived at Baan Kluaymai, which means ‘Orchid House’ in Thai, your host Orn’s country of origin. Surrounded by lush gardens, flowers and local birdlife, you’ll settle into holiday-mode as soon as you arrive. You might even want to switch your mobile off.

Enjoy the modern, open-space layout with a comfortable, spacious bedroom, a fully-equipped kitchen and a large, private deck with outdoor seating – all tastefully and carefully decorated.

The space
Open-space layout with a fully-equipped kitchen and a large, covered deck with comfortable outdoor seating and a comfortable and spacious bedroom. A private bathroom with shower completes the space.

For your convenience, a completely separate entrance means you can come and go as you like.

Reverse cycle air conditioning means it’s cosy and warm in winter, and those hot summer nights are becoming a breeze.

There’s enough room to just sit and read a book, but if you need to catch up on the latest news, video-call your mum or research day-trips in the mountains, there’s high-speed internet.

Where you’ll be

Blaxland, New South Wales, Australia

Only a good hour by express train from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, and a short 40 minutes drive from the crowded tourist towns of Leura and Katoomba, you can enjoy a quiet time in Blaxland and slow down. Shops and restaurants are nearby, so is the quaint village of Glenbrook where you can find excellent cafés.

We met in 2013, when Simon’s boss decided to send him for six weeks to the Phuket office of the company, so that he could work closer with the tech team which was based on the beautiful island.

Turns out Orn was working as a project manager in that office, too…
Six weeks turned into 15 months. And since moving to Australia, we decided to settle in the lower Blue Mountains.


After studying in New Zealand and Singapore, Orn – short for Ornuma –worked for a charity helping orphaned children after the tsunami in 2004, before returning again to her kiwi family to complete her degree in economics. Back in Thailand, she started a job as a project manager for a hotel booking engine provider, where she ended up meeting Simon. A passionate gardener and cook, Orn enjoys being the conductor of her orchestra, getting the plants and flowers perform at their peak in the melody called garden. 


Simon is originally from Switzerland and has lived in Australia since 1999, working in IT as a product manager for a global hospitality software provider in The Rocks. In his early years, he worked as a journalist, photographer and mediocre graphic designer, before switching to coding and then product. Simon loves daydreaming about way-too-oversized (and unaffordable) expedition trucks, building furniture and listening to his very small vinyl collection.
