About the property

Perfect Couples retreat or family with young children right in the heart of Ballina on the river

Beautifully situated on the banks of the Richmond River in the heart of Ballina, this modern one bedroom apartment plus separate study sleeps up to 4 guests and with spacious balcony and stunning pool views, it is a perfect family or couples retreat. Enjoy a drink and some nibbles on the north facing balcony watching the pool activity below. Please note however, that we have a strict no smoking policy.

The apartment is modern throughout and of generous size. The open plan design makes the most of the area and the property has a light and airy feel.

This apartment comfortably sleeps 4 people with a king size bed in the main bedroom and a double pull out sofa bed in the living area.

The other option for sleeping arrangements is the separate study that could double as a second bedroom as it contains a click clack futon and when made up the futon can sleep 2 small children or one adult. There is also enough room for a portacot if required in the study along with the futon so its a perfect option for sleeping young children as the study has bi-fold doors which can be closed off from the main living area.

The bathroom is off the master bedroom and has a luxurious feel boasting a huge walk in shower and vanity with twin wash basins.

One thing that really differentiates this apartment from many others in this complex is that it features a full kitchen. It has a dishwasher, 4 burner hot plate, full size refrigerator/freezer and microwave, however there is no oven. There is also the convenience of a Washing Machine and Dryer in the apartment.

The apartment is part of the Ramada Hotel Complex and guests have full access to all of the facilities (excluding reception staff) including the fantastic outdoor pool with sun deck, shaded areas and lounges and gymnasium.

The apartment has Austar and reverse control air conditioning in both the living area and the main bedroom. There are 2 levels of undercover car parking and 1 car space is available at no extra charge.

'The Point' Restaurant and Bar is downstairs fronting the Richmond River and a wonderful Italian and Indian Restaurant and also located in the Ramada Complex.

Ballina's shopping, restaurants and cafes are all on your doorstep and its just a short 5 - 10 min walk to the nearest beach. The public swimming pool and waterslide is also only a few minutes stroll as are the children's playgrounds and skatepark.

If you love to cycle, walk or jog, a great walking/cycle track starts right outside the apartment and will take you along the banks of the Richmond River right around Shaws Bay, Lighthouse Beach, Shelly's Beach and up to Angels Beach. There are also a couple of fantastic new cafes that have opened up along the way.

Convenient & clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here. Wendy was very helpful & contacted us a few days into our stay to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The apartment is a very conveniently located; only taking a few minutes to walk into town & there is a lovely riverside restaurant/bar downstairs which is open all day and is a wonderful place to watch the sunset. We would certainly consider staying here again.

Beautiful apartment, excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in an excellent location. The apartment is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you need including full kitchen and laundry facilities. The huge balcony is a wonderful place to relax with a glass of Prosecco! The hotel restaurant serves excellent food, as does the Italian next door and it's only a short walk to all the local shops, cafes and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this apartment.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The apartment was clean and well maintained. Everything we needed was available to us. There was excellent communication with the owner who followed up with us during our stay to make sure everything was ok. Easy walk to supermarket, shops and eateries. Stayed in 2016 but Stayz isn't updated yet for the New Year :)

Large, clean apartment with views to the north

  • 5 of 5

Wendy presented her apartment in a clean and stylish fashion. A Christmas hamper greeted us on our arrival which was soon ravished by our two daughters. The study nook easily converts to a second bedroom with a futon that could accommodate two children. The main bedroom was large, with a comfy king size bed. The apartment has a large balcony that over looks the pool from the sixth (top) floor of the complex. With sweeping views to the north we were able to catch a glimpse of Mount Warning some 70kms away. The apartment was fully self contained and Wendy had pre purchased us a carton of milk and barn laid legs which was a nice touch. Literally walking distance to everything Ballina has to offer, this apartment is highly recommended for weekend getaways or Christmas vacations such as ours.
