Fully self contained modern & spacious private guest studio with ensuite and kitchenette.

Attached to our almost new home this separate studio is situated on front bottom level with its own side entry access and lovely outdoor sitting area to enjoy the beautiful country views and sunsets.

Ideally located just off the highway at Ballina Heights and a short few minutes drive to the airport or city centre

The space
My husband and I have recently finished building and landscaping our stunning new home and would love to welcome guests to beautiful Ballina. This studio even though attached it is a completely separate space locked off to the rest of our home and although we are around a lot of the time we understand the need for privacy and like to leave our guests to do their own thing.

Our guest suite with Queen bedding and all linen, towels etc provided has easy polished concrete flooring, small but convenient kitchenette with sink, bar fridge, microwave, plug in induction hot plate, toaster & kettle and everything you need to be self sufficient for basic meals.

Beautiful ensuite with large shower and vanity with loads of room for all your toiletries. There is also a small table/desk and stools for meals or perfect for the laptop if on a working break plus two comfortable sitting chairs to enjoy your favourite TV show when you're not out exploring. We have fast unlimited NBN wifi and a smart TV

Our home has lovely country views and also overlooks the sports fields a few hundred metres down the road. Great if you’re wanting to go for that quick jog or walk to keep fit and there’s also some great walking/cycling tracks. We are a handy 5 minute drive from the airport and into Ballina city centre and it’s fabulous beaches and around 20/25 mins drive to beautiful Byron Bay.

Our adult children have all left home so we now live alone aside from them occasionally coming home to stay or our young grandchildren come to visit and there are generally no pets although I have began fostering rescue dogs that were on death row until a permanent home is found so it's pretty quiet although I have to note that as we are in a new estate they are still developing other blocks some distance away which doesn’t really have an impact but worth mentioning.

There is street parking at the front of our home and as our block/home is elevated (gives us the views) you should be aware there are some big steps (alongside our steep driveway) from the street up to the house or some less steep steps on the other side leading to your side access but then it’s all on level ground.

I am currently an Airbnb host and have been for the last 6 years with our other holiday apartment in the Ramada Complex in Ballina town centre and because I enjoyed managing this and meeting our guests it made sense to incorporate another rental into our new home we were building. If you look at my reviews for both our places you will see I aim to make my guests stay as enjoyable as possible in this studio in our as new home.

Guest access
As well as your own private sitting area to the side, the lovely covered timber verandah deck in front of your room is yours to use also.

Other things to note
I supply a few items for your first days Brekky (cereal, bread, butter and milk) to get you started. I also supply coffee, tea and sugar and also a few other basic items in the kitchen like Vegemite, S&P, gladwrap, freezer bags and a few other handy items you may use from time to time. There is also filtered water in a jug in the fridge and if you require some ice just msg me if I’m home and I can bring you some down. And if there's anything else you may need when cooking up something just ask as I'm likely to have it in my pantry for your use.

There is strictly no smoking or burning of incense, candles etc in the studio.

If any damage caused or items missing then these must be paid for.

Location

Cumbalum, New South Wales, Australia

We live in a lovely new area with beautiful country views and lovely neighbours but being new also means there's some building going on nearby during working hours with tradies coming and going. We overlook a great sports field and Complex and kids playground a few hundred metres down the road with great walking/cycling tracks to it and also into Ballina town. The Ballina Heights/Cumbulum estate where we live is conveniently close to the freeway for easy access.

My husband Scott and I have been Ballina locals for the last 30 years having moved from South Australia where we grew up and lived for 30 years prior. We thought we would relocate for a couple of years and return to Sth Aust but fell in love with the area that we couldn't leave. Now that our 3 children are grown up and independent, Scott and I are loving to travel and aiming to see as much of the world as we possibly can while we can. My favourite holiday destination is Bali, it's like my second home so if you're ever here and I'm not it's probably because I'm in Bali although Scott won't be there as he's not as sold on Bali as I am :) We have been using sites such as Airbnb when doing our own travelling as it is a fantastic and cost effective way of travelling instead of staying in cramped and costly hotel rooms. It made perfect sense to purchase our own apartment in our home town that we love and become a host as we know the area so well and can help others who would like to experience our unique coastal lifestyle. After 6 years of successfully managing our holiday apartment in the Ramada Complex we decided to rent out our own fully self contained studio space with ensuite and kitchenette attached to our brand new home we have finished building at Cumbulum or 'Ballina Heights' as it's also known. It's a great space and cost effective for that quick overnight stop or weekend away when you consider the cost of some of the dated basic motel rooms in our area. We really enjoy meeting people and love showing off Ballina so this has been a great way to do this over the last 6 years and we hope to continue this over the next ever how many years....

During your stay
My husband works during the week in our own business and I work part time helping him and managing our other property as well as my own market stall on some weekends so you may see us from time to time but we like to leave guests to do their own thing but if our guests are up for a chat or want some local knowledge we are only too happy to give it.
