About the property

A unique home in the Byron Bay hinterland rainforest surrounded by tall trees.

The Romantic Forest Hideaway is situated in the Hinterland of Byron Bay, in a village called Goonengerry, just a 35 minute scenic drive from Byron Bay town and beaches.

This property is unique, stunning and a beautiful place to stay within lush, landscaped gardens.

It is 20 minutes to Mullumbimby, 25 minutes to Bangalow, 30 minutes to Lismore, 50 minutes to Gold Coast Airport and 50 minutes to Ballina Airport.

10 minutes away, in Federal, there is a General Store and Post Office. Next door to the Post Office is a fabulous Japanese Cafe serving breakfast and lunch with great coffee and meals. On weekends the cafe provides live music. Federal also has another cafe and a Middle Eastern eatery.

For your comfort the Romantic Forest Hideaway has a split system air-conditioner, a wood burning heater.

This is the perfect place for those wanting, privacy and to be immersed in nature. This home is owned by a Yoga Teacher, who recommends it for those needing a place suitable for meditation, yoga, writing, painting, or just a beautiful place to enjoy nature, rejuvenate, have complete privacy and to relax.

The house is fully equipped with a flat screen TV, large, comfy lounge and kitchen (gas oven and grill, hot plates). There is a large timber deck overlooking the 20 meter infinity lined lap pool with a large timber table for dining and a day bed for lazing.

For the winter months there is a wood fire heater, and a gas heater.

The bedroom is housed in a separate dwelling, from the main house, and has its own verandah with stunning views over looking the sub tropical rain forest and the pool. The bed is king sized with a comfy futon mattress on a timber base.

Just beyond the pool is a Balinese Bale providing the perfect place to sit and meditate or just be in silence with only the sounds of nature. A little further away you can stroll down to the babbling creek which is surrounded by large granite rocks.

This unique retreat is Eco friendly and perfect for nature lovers. The house is run on solar power, plus mains power. It has a composting toilet (housed under cover on the verandah off the bedroom) and a open air shower with a sunken bath tub so you can view the forest while bathing in the day or the stars while bathing at night.

This venue provides privacy as it is the last house on this multiple occupancy property, therefore, there is no passing traffic or visitors.

Guests are reminded that this property is in the middle of the rainforest, therefore there is an abundance of diverse, local native fauna living in the forest (lizards, wallabies, frogs, birds, goanas, snakes). Tread carefully when you walk around the grounds and always have a torch with you when walking around at night.

To keep the property grounds and pool looking great we have a regular ground maintenance person come each Tuesday 9 - 12 noon and each fortnight on a Tuesday we have a gardener also working on the property from around 9 - 4 pm. Not all of this time is spent at the Hideaway as the gardeners also take care of the garden and grounds at another cabin near by.

There is wifi internet and a land line (no mobile phone reception).

To support the nourishing environment, that this retreat place provides, there is massage available on site by appointment for our guests or you can drive to nearby villages for massage. See the information sheet provided inside with contact phone numbers (depending on availability).

There is a 20 meter lap pool, for those that like to swim laps or just cool off in the summer months.

You are a 10 minute drive to Minyon falls and the Night Cap National Park and a short scenic drive to all the surrounding towns, unique villages and stunning beaches.

We ask that no candles are burned inside or outside during your stay.

Thank you and we wish you a wonderful stay in the Romantic Forest Hideaway.

Great place when it’s warm but less so in winter!

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful location in quite a private spot. However we found it to be rather cold. We were aware that the bedroom was in a separate building but not that it had no heating. The living area is a single room which is a space that is a basically too large to heat. Firewood is good supply but but the is no starting starting firewood which meant a trip to Bunnings some distance away.

The gas cook top performed satisfactorily. The pots were OK but the frying pan was positively dangerous with the handle looking like it was about to fall off. We bought our own but were not generous enough to leave it there.

We do not feel that that this property Ives up to how it s advertised.
