Other Things to Note
Children are of course welcome. You can bring your dog or cat to stay in the kennel at no extra charge. Backyard is not really dog proof however the kennels are big and lockable. You will need to clean up your dog waste.
Smoking is permitted on the back veranda or backyard. Definitely no smoking indoors. Small quiet gatherings ok but no parties with lots of guests, loud music or excessive alcohol. This is a quiet neighbourhood and a homely residence.
We loved our stay in Lorraine's house in Coff's Harbour. We had our own little living room, bathroom and bedroom. The bed was really large and cosy! We really liked the extra touch of the little snacks left for us. Loraine was very helpful and very welcoming. We would recommend her room highly! Thanks again Lorraine!
What a fantastic experience, a warm, cosy pit stop for us on our long drive. Lorraine was welcoming and had thought of all the creature comforts - looking forward to returning in a few days!
Amazing experience! The place was much larger than expected, cozy and Lorraine was the perfect host. If I'm back in Coffs Harbour, this is where I will be staying :) Thanks again!

What a lovely place to stay. It is a little apartment she back of Lorraine's home with lounge room, beautiful bathroom and wonderfully comfortable kind sized bed! It has been decorated with attracts from Lorraine's travels which give it a wonderful feeling. Well maintained, the house it heritage listed and in great condition. As a host Lorraine helped us explore Coffs and settle in. It was so wonderful trip find somewhere so nice to stay while traveling with our little dog. Will definitely stay again if in the area!
Lorraine was genuinely warm and accommodating. She was more than willing to help, suggest places to visit and went out of her way to be welcoming.
The room is exactly as described. Private and more than appropriate for my short business trip. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice, private place to stay in Coffs Harbour. It's not a modern hotel, but it is a charming little home.
Staying with Lorraine was one of our best AirBnB experiences. Well equipped apartment. Killer bed. Good bathroom. Great kitchen (BBQ).
Lorraine is an amazing host. Very very nice. Likes to chit chat, but also provides a relaxed environment if needed.
We stayed there after a few weeks of camping in the "mountains" and needed it and Lorraine had it all. At the end we went to the Bellingen market to see her stand. Nice!
About the Host, Lorraine
I am a fun loving, friendly and hard working mother of a grown up daughter. I am easy to get a long with and enjoy meeting new people. I have travelled extensively and have enjoyed the hospitalities of families throughout the world. I worked in hospitality in my younger years and completed a university degree in the human services as a mature age student. I now work part-time in areas associated with my studies. My main interests are my daughter, family, friends, people, my home, travel and cooking. I love hot climates and the beach. My favourite movie is Out of Africa with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.
