Interaction with Guests
We will be away overseas during this time and available via email and on Viber for any questions. There will be a local caretaker available for other trouble shooting.
This is a peaceful, friendly, family neighbourhood. It is very suitable for families and couples looking for a peaceful retreat. If you are looking for a party place or are very noisy our home won't be right for you.
There is very limited public transport so having a car is recommended.
Other Things to Note
We have a placid, 17 year old cat called Binky who will be living with you during your stay. She will let herself in and out of her cat door but will ask you to feed her! She loves cuddles but will understand if that isn't your thing. She is very tolerant of children but will swipe if they are too rough and hurt her.
Our home is strictly non smoking.
We are a vegetarian family so our custom built kitchen is not well suited to cooking meat inside as there is no rangehood. We do have a BBQ located just outside the kitchen for your use and would prefer you use this if you would like to cook meat.
Our home has been rennovated with the environment in mind. We have solar electricity and hot water. We encourage you to use the washing machine and dishwasher during sunlight hours in order to minimise environmental impact. We have a worm farm you are welcome to use.
Our floors are made of sustainable bamboo. While they are very hard they are also very sensitive to water. Please mop up any spills straight away or the floor will swell and be damaged. Our weekly rate includes a mid week clean of the floors as they require a specialty mop. Please don't mop the floors.
Please respect our wonderful community of neighbours and keep noise to a minimum.
Due to our vicinity to festival sites and the size of our home we have had to enforce a strict no party policy and thank guest for their respect and understanding of these rules. Drug or excessive alcohol consumption and noisy behaviour is not permitted at any time. Only guests named on the booking are permitted on site unless otherwise preapproved at our discretion.
Indoor dining on the country table or soaking in the view at the breakfast bar in the huge open plan kitchen/dining/lounge.
Absolutely fabulous! There were 12 of us included children and we all loved Christina's house. The house is very spacious and very well laid out. The description was very accurate. The location is fantastic, lots of privacy, so close to the beach and to the cafe/pizzeria (delicious pizzas), so close to Brunswick Heads by car (or by running on the beach or kayaking for some of us!), also half an hour to Byron Bay. Our highlight was the kayaks on the river, so easy and peaceful, everyone had a go!
Even though it was pouring with rain for the first 2 days, we made the most of it by riding the bikes, kayaking, cooking in the beautiful kitchen, playing board games on the huge dining table and watching tv.
The house had everything we needed. Christina was a fantastic host, she is well organised and had everything ready for us (thanks heaps for all the baby gears). Her friend, Julia was very welcoming, extremely easy to deal with and always there for us if we needed her. Also we really appreciated the mid-stay clean, another great point during our stay. To start with we thought it was going to be hard not to damage the bamboo floor but we were provided with lots of towels and rugs which made it eventually not dauting at all!
We strongly recommend booking Christina's beautiful house, you definitely won't regret it : )
We had a wonderful time at Christina’s beautiful house. We loved the location – being right on the water, and just a short walk to the beach. The house was in lovely condition, very comfortable and perfect for families. Christina was a wonderful host, preparing the house perfectly for our toddlers with cots, highchairs, prams and toys.
The Yum Yum Tree Cafe offers excellent service and food and is only a short drive away.
