About this listing

Enjoy some of the best views in the region from the large deck of this cosy two bedroom apartment. It's a breathtaking ocean panorama with Byron Bay and it's iconic lighthouse in the distance.

The space

Great two bedroom cabin with amazing ocean views and Byron Bay and its famous lighthouse in the distance. The apartment has two bedrooms, bathroom, laundry, tv including foxtel, wifi and a fantastic outdoor seating area that takes full advantage of the view. The main bedroom has a queen bed and the second has two single beds that can be joined together to make one king size bed if accommodating two couples. Sunrises and full moons are spectacular from the hammock. The apartment is joined to another apartment but is screened off and private with it's own entrance. There is also an outside shower and bath close by in our banana packing area. It's a wonderful way to rinse off after a day at the beach.

The Featherview property is a working organic banana farm. We manage the property with the best landcare and environmental practices and don't use any chemicals or harmful pesticides. Also, we focus on creating a beautiful farming landscape as much as a healthy, productive crop.

Half of the property is natural bushland with pockets of rainforest and there are walks and lookouts to enjoy it fully. There are many rare and threatened species like koalas, birds, frogs, echidnas. We also have wallabies, possums, snakes and many other creatures too. Every day we have a new surprise visitor from the natural world. Due to our commitment to wildlife conservation we can't accept requests with dogs sorry.

The local area is full of colour and culture with a leaning to alternative lifestyles. Friday's farmers market is a highlight not to be missed. The closest beach is a fifteen minute drive and the famous beaches and sights of Byron Bay are half an hour away.

The rate starts at $130 per night but varies according to seasonal demand. Off season rates are negotiable for singles or couples. Don't be shy to make an offer and look out for last minute standby deals.

Truly spectacular! Peaceful and relaxing. Comfy and clean. The views are amazing to say the least. Brekky and snacks were a lovely touch. We really enjoyed the banana farm tour with Garry. Would love to have stayed longer.

My partner and I stayed for one night at Garry's accommodation, as it was my partners birthday and our stay totally exceeded our expectations. Garry made the arrival very special and personable through writing both our names on the surf board at the entrance of the property, which made for a great initial welcome. The accommodation was spotless and although we brought a couple of our own items Garry provided everything we needed as far as kitchen and bathroom utensil's. The kind touch of providing us with fruit grown on his own land was a great addition to our breakfast, as we watched the amazing sunrise from the deck. It was the perfect place for anyone looking to escape from their busy lives, and schedules to simply un wind and relax, boasting incredible views and close proximity by car to Byron Bay for a pitstop on the way home.

Stunning location and ample space for 4 adults, great views from the deck while swinging in the hammocks. Garry was attentive and helpful without being in our space. Only minor detail was we didn't bring an aux cord and couldn't play our ipods/phones through the stereo - so if this is important to you, bring a cable! The kitchen was super well equipped and the living room heater was amazing. The beds were super comfy and cosy for a cold winter's night. We had a great time and will be back!

The view from Featherview is truly spectacular and the proximity to Byron Bay makes it a very convenient location. The cabin is neat and tidy and Garry provided the makings for a great breakfast, including frozen bananas for smoothies! The kitchen is very well appointed with plenty of utensils and equipment. We only stayed one night as we were passing through, but we'd happily base ourselves here for a few days, and take the time to look around the banana plantation.

Response from Garry:
Thanks Therese. It was such a pleasure to meet you and your family. Guests couldn't possibly be any better. We're so grateful that you booked with us. It was a bit sad to see you drive out. Hope to see you again one day. Send all your Dutch friends. We love the Netherlands!

I'm a hippie banana farmer from Mullumbimby near Byron Bay. My parents bought our piece of paradise over thirty years ago when the farming communities were in decline and land was cheap. We immediately went about restoring the degraded, weed infested natural bushland which includes koala habitat and threatened ecosystems. Since 1980 we have planted over eight thousand trees grown from seed collected from local remnants and removed acres of weeds. I love rainforests can identify most species in the local area and can recognise local birds from their calls.

We took over management of the degraded four hectare banana plantation and converted it to a more organic or biological system. Previously chemicals were used and soil erosion was slowly destroying the landscape. We created swales (terraces) to catch and slow water movement and planted cover crops to hold the precious topsoil in place. Our main source of fertiliser is farm grown chipped wood and compost used as a mulch. We are essentially taking carbon from the atmosphere where it is a problem and storing it in the soil where it is useful but lacking. Carbon feeds the microbial life that is essential to plant health and our farm philosophy revolves around that fact. Harmlessness is something we apply to every aspect of our project. We aim to not harm the land and respect all the life that inhabits it including microscopic life under the soil surface.

I'm married to Suzy who works as a flight attendant. We are vegan and hope guests respect and accept our philosophy. We welcome anyone into our home who is interested in nature, sustainability, peace and compassion, alternative thinking and lifestyles.. or anyone who is respectful of our beautiful property.

We love sharing our house and amazing property with appreciative people so send us a message if you want to discover paradise or just want to say hello. If you don't have the opportunity to stay but are in the area and are curious about what a sustainable banana farm looks like I usually can spare half an hour to show it off. There's a free banana smoothie in it for anyone who is interested enough.
