Enter through the internal access door from the garage into a fully equipped and spacious, light-filled lounge area with beautiful bay windows showcasing the stunning view. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you may need to make yourself completely at home, a full sized stove and oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, even an espresso coffee machine (yes, its real coffee!) with complimentary 'pods'.

All three bedrooms on this level have queen beds, mounted TVs and full sized ensuites.

The main bedroom opens on to a private part of the veranda overlooking the 2 acre property, including the pool area. This bedroom also has a tea & coffee facility, bar fridge and a relaxing spa bath. All bedrooms are fitted with reverse cycle air conditioning.

In the lounge/dining area you have the use of a large plasma TV and DVD player, books and magazines. There is a massive library of over 300 DVD's to choose from for your viewing pleasure.

The slow combustion fireplace for cosy winter nights completes the comfort level for this space.

The living area opens on to a large veranda with a table setting. Enjoy your meal and wine the al fresco way whilst watching the local bird life as they feed from the well visited feeding platform.

Downstairs is the 'Garden Suite', including a separate lounge/sitting room, a fully equipped kitchenette and a queen bedroom, with full sized ensuite and walk in wardrobe. There are two TVs (one in the bedroom and one in the living area), a DVD player and reverse cycle air-conditioning. This suite sleeps 3 with the addition of a single bed.

There is also a fully equipped laundry with washing machine, dryer and iron.

A romantic stroll under rainforest trees leads to the 'Oasis Pool' area. Lounge around the beautiful and healthy salt-water pool surrounded by palms, or go for a midnight swim with full underwater and above ground lighting.

Bella Vista Bellingen Eco-friendly Accommodation is situated just 1km from the town centre on the edge of a forest - a handy, undulating, walking distance from town, yet you feel you are miles away from everything.Take advantage of dozens of walking/hiking trails through forests right outside the front door. Or simply walk to the lookout which overlooks the whole of the beautiful Bellinger Valley.


The historic town of Bellingen is situated halfway between Sydney and Brisbane and is one of the most beautiful and renowned towns on the North Coast. Green rolling hills and valleys link the mountains to the sandy beaches of the Pacific Ocean.

A 45 minute drive west will see you at the world renowned Dorrigo National Park with its countless rainforest walks and rich wildlife. A 20 minute drive east and you will walk on kilometres of pristine, white sandy beaches which are completely undeveloped. Sometimes you will not see another soul the whole time you are there. A 10 minute drive and you can swim in the most romantic and refreshing fresh water swimming holes along the Never Never Creek in the "Promised Land", or in the myriad of other creeks and rivers which this region is known for.

All this, only 30 minutes drive from Coffs Harbour airport.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely location, decor was a bit dated & kitchen appliances need upgrading. Would have been better if there were twin beds in one room but generally a very nice house for 7 of us. The downstairs was very noisy when people were upstairs but the space was very good.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Bella Vista. We booked out the entire house which was perfect for the 6 of us. We found the property beautiful, private and welcoming. Everyone enjoyed their stay immensely and loved their rooms, as well as the amazing lounge rooms, verandah and pool. We all left wishing we had organised a longer holiday and talking about planning another trip back to Bella Vista.

Nina and Michaela both made booking and staying with them an easy, worry-free and welcoming experience.

Peaceful property.

  • 4 of 5

Four couples, we all had bedrooms with ensuites,all clean and tidy. There was an older style comfortable lounge and dining areas and covered deck in a very private bushy surround. We did a lot of sitting talking and eating and the house was great for that. We had 4 great days in beautiful Bellingen which included walks, shopping, eating out and then coming back to our little retreat. (I would suggest most people would probably prefer to drive into town rather than walk up the hill too often.)We all enjoyed our stay very much.

Comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

Accommodation suited family gathering of 12 adults. Downside was that 3 adults had to sleep on 3 thin mattresses that were described on site as being high density foam mattresses. Upside was queen beds were very comfortable.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my son, daughter and her husband at Bella Vista for 13 nights. We each enjoyed our rooms with ensuite and they boys I'm sure enjoyed the TVs in their rooms. The house was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable.

My son in law particularly enjoyed feeding the very cheeky Kookaburra family of mum, dad and child who demanded food seemingly non stop!

The pool was lovely and very refreshing and we enjoyed many hours just relaxing by the pool with a book.

The weather during our first week wasn't especially kind however it was just lovely to sit in the lounge area (again with a book) and also watch the gentle rain in the trees.

Our host Michaela was very helpful and we were especially impressed when after we mentioned our disappointment that there was no longer a BBQ provided - she went out and purchased a new electric BBQ which we utilised on the veranda and enjoyed our lovely summer evenings around the table.

All around we all agreed that we would definitely come again
