My stay in Ballina was just lovely. This accommodation is everything and more than I imagined.
I was greeted by Tracy on arrival and she was very warm and welcoming.
The accommodation was clean, bright and had everthing I required.
Very well situated in the town of Ballina, with very easy access to surrounding tourist destinations. Parking was never a problem either.
I could not recommend this accommodation and the host more. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.
Thank you for helping out to find a new place when I couldn't make it to yours!!! Next time
A gorgeous home with a beautiful tropical outlook, well equipped kitchenette, large bathroom, spacious living area and two gorgeous dogs. Walking distance to the local shops. Thank you Tracy for a wonderful stay.
Perfect place to stay while you are in Ballina! We didn't had the room on the picture but it was also a very nice one, decorated and super clean. The shared bathroom is spotless and the house in general very comfortable. We really loved staying here! Couldn't meet Tracy unfortunatly but she was great and always answered quick when we had questions! We will definetly come back!!
I stayed with Tracy for 3 weeks whilst in Ballina for work. My stay was just perfect. Spacious, clean room with comfortable bed and a beautiful garden view. Tracy and family were great hosts and very helpful with recommending places to eat and things to do in the Ballina area. The house is located within walking distance to shops, river and beach. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Thanks Tracy.
Tracy was very welcoming and helpful. I stayed in a great little semi-self-contained granny (email hidden)ose to the river, shops and beaches. Clean and comfortable with my own private entrance.

About the Host, Tracy
I'm from Ballina, a small but vibrant coastal/surfing town on the East coast of Oz. I work in community services helping people record music and generally access the arts community.
I love meeting new people and just seeing how other people live, and learning about different careers, lifestyles and cities people love.
