Gorgeous home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly loved our weekend stay in this gorgeous home. Perfectly located a short stroll to the beach and town, this private cottage surrounded by gardens is equipped with everything you need - it really does feel like a home away from home!

Beautiful well maintained house close to centre of Balina

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week in this beautiful well positioned house which is in a very quiet private area. My two teenage daughters loved the fact we were within 10 minutes of Lennox Head and only 25min to Byron Bay.The house is well suited for dog lovers as the dog beach on the river is just a 5 min walk.Ballina and the surrounding beaches also have numerous bike riding paths to explore.I would not hestate to stay here again in this beautiful old cottage which is perfectly suited for two couples or a family of 4 and is also disability friendy.I have stayed in numerous holiday accom options over the years and feel this was one of the best for the price.

Comfortable, well-appointed property in a great position. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay and would highly recommend this property. We particularly liked the fact that we were able to have our dog with us.

Excellent home away from home

Extremely comfortable accomodation which felt like being at home. The accomodation had numerous thoughtful inclusions that helped make staying away from home much easier. Very accessible for wheelchairs. We will certainly stay again. Great for smal children.
