About this listing
It is Paraiso - paradise! Our stylish & comfortable one bedroom studio unit has a relaxed feeling.
The villa is separate to the main house, and has private entry via a side lane. Although the pool and spa are shared with the house, the backyard is relatively private.
Paraiso is fully self-contained. It has a dish-washer, full size fridge, hot plates, microwave and basic amenities with a Caesar stone topped kitchen.
The lounge/bedroom area has an Italian leather twin reclining lounge, TV with DVD player, ipod dock station, comfortable queen size bed,with views over the pool through cedar shutters.
There is a console table made from frozen Indian railway sleepers and stainless steel. This eating area and writing area overlooks the azure pool.
The bathroom is exquisite. The shower area has two facilities - a rain-head and a hand held shower. A large window in the shower recess overlooks a water feature.
Italian handmade floor tiles have been used throughout the unit.
The unit is equipped with reverse air-conditioning. It is tastefully decorated with many paintings and artwork from Mexico and Northern Territory.
There is an outdoor BBQ for the use of guests, with table and chairs beside the pool.
It's an invitation to tranquility on the Coffs Coast.
Interaction with Guests
We have limited interaction with our guests.
Urunga has much to offer the visitor. There are several walks close to Paraiso that follow the river. The boardwalk is a 5 minute walk. This boardwalk is one of the longest in Australia. It connects the "city" and the surf!
The rivers meet at Urunga before going out to sea.
Anchors Wharf Cafe, on the river, opens at 8.00 each morning for breakfast, coffee or lunch. Dinner on some nights.
Dorrigo national park has many beautiful rainforest walks.
Bellingen is only 10 minutes by car. It offers a nostalgic step back to a peaceful town of cafés and gift shops.
Coffs Harbour has the Big Banana and the Jetty Foreshores.
You can walk along our beach to Hungry Head (only patrolled surf beach in Urunga) and further to Valla - but take a good picnic snack!
Whilst we are within walking distance to the facilities of Urunga and the beach, a car is required to experience the local area. There is limited bus transportation to Coffs Harbour.
Entry to Paraiso is from Coopers Lane. The gate is to be closed at all times.
Parking is available outside the gate.
Bundy, the house Labrador, is kept in the front yard. Only dogs are permitted as pets, and prior notice is required. Dogs are not allowed in the unit (as this is against health regulations, and it compromises the unit for people with allergies). Smoking is not permitted inside the unit.
Guests are not permitted to entertain other "guests". The unit is to accommodate a maximum of two persons.
Whilst the BBQ is available for guests, the outside kitchen and seating area is private.
Paraiso is a beautiful place to stay. Homely, peaceful and very relaxing. I highly recommend you book your next holiday here! Denise made us feel very welcome and gave great suggestions about places to visit in the area. Don't forget to drop down to the Anchor's Wharf - the food is delicious!
This place was even better than the pictures! Pure luxury and great hospitality! The unit is very private and in a beautiful area.
The photos didn't prepare us for just how nice this place is. I'm sure Denise is sick of hearing it by now, but it was really perfect in every way!
We arrived pretty late and very tired from driving from Brisbane, had a lovely hot shower, enjoyed the very nice toiletries, and fell asleep on the couch! At some point we moved to the bed and that was just heaven - the comfiest bed I've ever slept in.
Denise was fantastic. Although we didn't meet her, she had great communication throughout with anticipating our arrival (making the place nice and warm), offering dinner suggestions, and leaving some yoghurt and fruit for a quick breakfast before we hit the road again.
The place is set up as a proper separate guest house, and is more luxurious than any hotel I've been in! I could have stayed there for weeks.
The only problem was with the internet. The wifi doesn't quite reach, and Telstra reception there is very patchy. If you're planning on watching some Netflix before bed, maybe bring a Bluray instead!
Beautiful unit in a peaceful area. The place was so well equipped and we had a fantastic sleep in a comfy bed before heading off on another long day of travel. Thanks Denise and Steve. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone.
Lovely unit, very comfy and homely. Very well equipped. Bathroom even had the same shampoo I use at home!
Only downside was the wifi didn't work and I had some work to do. But if the only downside is you didn't have to work, really that's not much of a downside.
Oh, and Denise is great too.
This was a lovely place to stay. Denise provides everything you need to be comfortable and goes the extra mile. Bed was super comfortable after a long day driving.
Denise was a lovely host with great communication.
The studio is beautifully finished with great attention to detail.
The bed was sooooo comfortable.
Denise welcomed us and made sure we had essentials and some local information to find our way around.
