A luxury escape.

  • 5 of 5

We’ve had a lovely, relaxing break at Toraja for the past 10 days. We felt at home and loved admiring the stunning, changing views every day.

We had everything we needed, with a well appointed kitchen.

The showers are spot on. Large rain shower heads. Perfect.

The pool area lays in the afternoon light and is a welcome escape from the heat.

The location was excellent. Far enough that you could escape people if you wanted to, but close to both Ballina and Byron Bay, as well as little towns we highly recommend, including Bangalow, Newrybar and Lennox Head.

The house is light and airy, with doors and windows to capture the breeze from every angle.

The wide verandah was the perfect place to park yourself for hours on end.

The dogs, chickens and horses were a big hit with our three year old twins.

Thank you to Sarah for your hospitality.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely stunning, beautifully decorated and the view is breathtaking. The kids really enjoyed playing with the horses and counting stars at night. Everything is ready for you when you check in. The location is also very convenient, just a short drive away to Harvest which is one of our favorite restaurant in the neighborhood and just lovely waking up by the rising sun and hearing the birds chipping away. Highly recommend.

Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the guest house to celebrate my husbands 40th with our two young children. We wanted somewhere family friendly but with a little bit of luxury. The house has been tastefully styled and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. I would definitely recommend a winter stay, as the fireplace was amazing and complimented that incredible view perfectly! We woke to misty/foggy feilds and the most spectacular sunrise. The horse visits were a hit! So Friendly and we loved feeding him a carrot/apple or two!
