Stylish, relaxing and if your idea of a beach holiday is not having to cross one single road to reach the beach ... then we are it!
Your own luxury studio accommodation with direct beach access.
Drifted Away offers luxury overnight and short stay accommodation in an architect designed self contained studio. Seperated by a breezeway from the main house and accessed by its own entry the studio offers a large queen room, with en suite bathroom and a mini kitchen (microwave) plus has its own north facing decking with a lovely view through the forest to the beach.
The accommodation is sunny and breezy with louvre windows catching the sea breeze, a ceiling fan for when it's hot and a discreet electric panel heater for the 2 months of the year that it is cool.
All organic cotton sheets and towels are supplied as are guest amenities, organic soaps, organic shampoo & conditioner, tea and coffee (Nespresso machine), mini bar fridge, crockery, cutlery, free wi-fi connection, internet TV, music docking station and writing desk.
Organic fruit and yogurt with Bircher Muesli breakfast included.
The property is located in a residential street in the old part of Valla Beach and is part of a new contemporary home. It has on-street parking and just a few steps to two lovely lookouts over the coastline heading towards Coffs Harbour to the north and Nambucca Heads and South West Rocks to the south.
Direct access to the beach is located at the rear of the property via a bushland track. There is an outdoor shower for use after a swim or surf.
This accommodation is suited for singles or couples and is not set up for children or pets.
There are two local cafes available for breakfasts and lunches and we are happy to recommend a variety of restaurants within half an hour's drive of the property for dinner.
Walk down the track at the bottom of the garden, to the beach for a swim, a surf or fishing, or perhaps just sit and watch the dolphins and (from May-Nov) the migrating whales. You might also enjoy noticing the prolific birdlife in the garden and greater surrounds. We can organise massage, yoga, bush walks etc.
Parking is available on street at front of property and can handle car, caravan, trailer, boat etc.
We are located 39kms south of Coffs Harbour which is roughly half way between Sydney and Brisbane. Valla Beach is an easy to find secluded turn-off from the Pacific Highway.
This is a quiet holiday stay. You would love it if you like nature, surf, sand, birdlife, walks, fishing etc. We have a local cafe, a real estate agent and not much else, which for some people (like us) that's perfect!
The luxury studio accommodation is separated by a breezeway from the main house and accessed by its own entry.
The key is accessed via a key safe outside your door - code is provided prior to your arrival. We are usually here to welcome you personally.
We will supply you with a password for the WiFi on arrival. Your i-Devices can use the stand-alone speaker system in the room for music.
Interaction with guests
The idea of you coming to stay is presumably to 'get away'. We say HELLO on arrival and show you everything and then GOODBYE on departure, unless you need us.
Other things to note
From May to November you can sit at the lookout (about 50 steps from your room) and watch the whales go by.

Peter and I built a new contemporary home in 2009 and incorporated holiday space into the design to let us share our special piece of paradise. We are both healthy, energetic and fit people with a love of the beach and fishing. We are great hosts as we have both travelled extensively and have backgrounds in aviation and adventure tourism. We are pretty easy going, but are selective about who stays with us. We will keep to ourselves whilst you're here, but will be available if you need local knowledge and tips for having a great stay.
