About this listing
We have a spacious 5 bedroom solar powered home nestled against the enchanting Australian forest. Relax on our expansive deck and see the king parrots, scaly breasted lorikeets, rosellas and even the occasional wallaby!
Here you can enjoy breakfast or simply a quiet cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon or a glass of wine in the evening while you listen to the birds and cicadas.
The home is Scandinavian themed and adorned in over 30 of our Finnish mother's tapestries. We are surrounded by a melody of parrots, kookaburras, cicadas, black cockatoos, rainbow lorrikeets and cicadas in summer. We are always available to answer any questions you may have or to give directions. We are happy for you to use the kitchen if you want to cook your own meals. The supermarket is only a few minutes drive away.
We don't have a TV so you need to be able to happily enjoy your own company. Most guests enjoy the peace and tranquillity and just chilling out on the veranda or going to the beach.
We are 15 minutes walk to some of Australia's most beautiful beaches that are matched only by the magical sunsets that you get in this part of the world. There is a wonderful shaded forest walk to the beach. We see dolphins at nearby Shelly beach in the early mornings and whales during the whale season.
The house is 10 minutes walk from the local Nambucca Heads shops and 2 minutes drive to the beach. We are 30 minutes drive from the very stylish Bellingen and enjoy going there regularly for a bit of cafe-life. Nambucca is close to the freeway so it's a small detour if you are commuting and need a place to stay for the evening. We have a sub tropical climate and really great weather for most of the year.
We provide fresh fruit, bread and eggs for all of the guests as well as tea and coffee. This room has a private bathroom, a large wardrobe and a view overlooking the garden. There is plenty of off street parking for at least 4 cars. There are currently no photos of the room as I have been overseas these past 2 years and am returning home within a week's time. I will upload photos of the same when I return. It is a spacious and cool room overlooking the garden with a Queen size futon bed which is very comfortable. There is a ceiling fan and a lounge as well in the room.
Our neighbour's cute little dog Gypsy likes to visit most days!
Iris is your host. You will have access to the large deck upstairs, as well as the kitchen where you can prepare your own breakfast and meals if you are staying longer than overnight. You also have access to the garden.
Interaction with Guests
I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the area and places to visit. I am also mindful of your privacy and will give you the space you need to enjoy your stay.
Neighbours here are very quiet and we are surrounded by natural bush reserve and state forest. We are in a very tranquil and private setting. You will find your stay here relaxing and peaceful.
We have plenty of parking in front of the double garage for about 6 cars. You need to make your own way from Coffs Harbour airport to here but if you need picking up from Nambucca Heads train station that can be arranged if you let Iris know when you book.
