Close to everything! - the Beach, rivers, and right in town with everything you need!! Shops, cafes and Public transport just a few blocks away. Happy, relaxed atmosphere, in a stunning 110 year old home in the beautiful Northern Rivers.

The Space

Your room is in a beautiful 110 year old home, located 2 blocks from the main street of town in Ballina, Northern Rivers, NSW.

We are 2kms from the beach, 1km from the Richmond River, 1.5kms from North Creek. So if you love water - surfing, beachwalks, sunbaking, swimming, fishing - this is the place for you. You will be staying just 500m from cafes, restaurants, shops and a bus stop that takes you directly to the popular surf towns of Lennox Head and Byron Bay. 5mins from Ballina airport, 1hr from Gold Coast airport, 25mins drive to Byron Bay.
Ballina is at the heart of Northern Rivers NSW, but is not as expensive or touristy as other towns.

There is tennis courts and a bowls club with a bar and restaurant, cheap food and drinks just 30 metres away!!

The house is quite large, and you will be staying in a room at the end of the house. It has lots of cross breezes, own entrance so you dont need to walk through the house. It has a heater, double or single bed as needed, towels and linen provided.

Access to BBQ. We also provide Bar Fridge, toaster, kettle, microwave and tea/coffee. Full use of laundry, own toilet, shared bathroom with 1 other, (bath and shower)
Free wi-fi, access to computer if needed. Free coffee from our delicious coffee machine.

We enjoy accommodating guests from all over the world, and love to share local knowledge of the area - great waterfalls to see, amazing beaches, where to surf, best coffee shops.

Surf boards for hire @ $20/day, pushbikes available to use for free. There are some great bike rides to do in this stunning area.

Look forward to hosting your stay in the Northern Rivers

Check In
  • 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.

  • My stay in Ballina was perfect. Tracy and her family are really lovely, helpful and informative - while affording you total privacy. I stayed in the studio convert, which is self-contained except for just a short undercover step across to the main house, with your own toilet and a clean and pretty bathroom. Having the use of the washing machine and clothes-line was fantastic - if you're staying longer you need it! The studio is great - light, comfortable and surrounded by a lovely garden, with your own private entrance.You're in easy walking distance to the shops, the buses, the beautiful river, a short drive to the beaches......and yet it is super quiet and tranquil if you just want to hang out and read in your patch of garden.
    I would recommend it without hesitation to anyone wanting to explore Ballina and surrounds from a place of comfort, friendliness and privacy.

  • I am a University student and stayed with Tracy for two weeks. My bedroom was absolutely perfect and the house itself was beautiful! The room was spacious and had its own little outdoor deck area which over looked the garden. This property is within walking distance to pretty much everything in Ballina and is located on a quiet street.

    Tracy was such a great host and was really helpful in recommending great cafés in the local area, the best surfing beaches, activities and walks to do around Ballina and also how to get to surrounding suburbs like Byron bay using the local bus service.

    This room is perfect for a student who may be in the Ballina area on placement or even a couple. There is so much to do in Ballina and this property is in a really great location. I really enjoyed my stay and look forward to being in Ballina again :)

Hi, I'm from Ballina, which prob the nearest tourist town you would hear of would be Byron Bay, NSW, Australia. Its a small but vibrant coastal/surfing town on the East coast of Oz. Im a musician (bass player), and have travelled for many years playing bass. I'm super relaxed, and happy to go with the flow. I also work in community services helping people with challenges 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.
