The perfect place to unwind & recharge
This is our third time staying at the Artist’s Studio Wilderness Retreat, but our first time in summer, so this time we got to experience the pool in all its glory!
The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and extremely relaxing. The extra little touches of fresh picked flowers in the rooms are always much appreciated. The garden & the view and of course the pool are all mesmerising, and we spent a huge amount of time just sitting and enjoying the spacious surrounds.
The beaches & buzz of Byron & the sleepy hinterland villages of Bangalow & Federal are only a short drive away, but we love being able to retreat to this peaceful spot & recharge to the sounds of birds & cows in the neighbouring hills, and we can’t wait to return yet again.
The refreshment factor!
It was a wonderful stay, despite the smoke and heat - extremely relaxing and delightful. The property is just the ticket for a big de-stress - fabulous views, peaceful and a haven for just chilling out, be it sitting on one of the wide verandahs or splashing about in the pool. We didn't want to leave!
From the moment we walked in the door of this amazing property we felt relaxed and comfortable. It’s just perfect to get away and to destress . Close enough by car for a quick drive to Bangalow for supplies but nice and quiet. Can’t wait to go back and the whole family were sad to leave .
There is an awful lot of maintenance that needs to be done, to bring it up to standards. Cleanliness was average. Pool fencing was not child proof or even up to regulated standards. The 2 things I liked about the place were the pool and bathrooms.
Very sorry you found the property ‘wanting’.
In reply - the pool has a compliance certificate from the Council.
We clean the house once or twice a week for 4 or 5 hours. I’m sorry you find this ‘average’. We have taken note of your comments, and will try even harder than we do to make the place as inviting as possible, as we strive to make the house an enjoyable experience for all our guests.
Best wishes, Lissa
This property was as expected, spacious and peaceful, although we were very disappointed as it requires a good spring clean. Floors were dirty and gritty. There were many cobwebs and the top of the curtains held a layer of dirt.
The pool was very clean and the large outdoor area was great and well utilised. There were also many conveniences in the kitchen which was well equipped.
We enjoyed our stay regardless and would recommend this property if standard of cleanliness is improved.
I am so surprised to read your reaction to the house. The house was cleaned for five hours before your arrival. I can only assume the house was suffering from the terrible smoke and grit in the air from the shocking bush fires not far from the property. There has been an unprecedented amount of matter in the air, and some must have blown in after the clean and before your arrival. The fires have now abated in the nearby area, and the air quality is improving. We work hard on trying to make the house as clean and inviting as possible, so as guests can have a relaxing a holiday. The property is surrounded by a huge garden and rainforest, and we don’t use poisons in the garden, so sometimes bugs come in, but we quickly usher them out. This is the shadow side of living in nature. I will have the curtains inspected and dealt with forthwith. Best wishes, Lissa
Beautifully maintained home in a stunning setting, with all the amenities you need. Quiet and peaceful, with only the sounds of birds around us, this wonderfully decorated property is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. I loved the layout of this property, and the pool was the perfect place to end the day. Thank you for having us!
