Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 6 nights


About the property

Built in 1893, Bencluna was one of the first houses built in the Byron Shire. Constructed of timbers felled on the property, it sits on 6 park like acres high on the Eureka pleateau and offers complete privacy.

Enter off Eureka Road, down a private lane over a picturesque bridge you'll find the lovingly restored and ultra private Bencluna Byron Hinterland. The house can sleep up to 10 people, there is a separate cabin (that sleeps 2) and bathroom should some want that extra privacy from their group - House with cabin sleeps 12. The house has been fully modernised and includes all the things that are deemed mandatory these days like Platinum Foxtel, 60" LCD Smart TV, free wifi, free local calls, Bose sound system, air conditioning and a fantastic kids bedroom/retreat complete with double bunks, bean bags, games, flat screen TV, DVD player.

The house has a king size and queen size bedrooms downstairs, optional twin beds upstairs which can be converted into a king size bed, and a kids room with two king single double bunks, Foxtel/TV/DVD player. In the garden is a private single room cabin (sleeps 2, available for additional cost, bringing to 12 the total number available to accommodate) with separate shower & toilet. A separate dwelling houses another bathroom and laundry with large washer and dryer.

The large bathroom has a huge walk in, dual head shower, and a bath perched in front of bi fold windows giving the feel of an outside bathroom. Lounge away in the bath with a glass of wine listening to your favourite tunes emanating from the Bose sound system whilst looking over the gardens - its a great way to spend the late afternoon.

The kitchen is well equipped with coffee machine, juicer, french door fridge (filtered water and ice maker), gas cook top and wall mounted oven. It also has a Miele dishwasher.

An open dining room can seat 10 comfortably around the recycled Elm French Farmhouse style table, and even has under floor heating which is great for the cooler months. For those that can't quite escape work there is a separate, private business centre/sun room that is connected to the dining room that includes work station with laser printer, and of course connectable to the FREE WiFi network.

Around the house on the expansive decks are several relaxing nooks with the choice of a day-bed, lounge suite or hammock.

The kids will love the gardens and exploring the pocket of rainforest. There is also a fantastic spring free 'Vully', fully netted, king size trampoline, and an outside fire pit just near the cabin.

Situated 5 minutes from Federal and Clunes, 10 minutes from Bangalow, and less than 20 minutes from the beaches of Byron Bay and surrounds, however it seems a world away from everything.
