About this listing
Wake up to the sunrise and shower with the birds. The single room apartment has one of the best views in the region. An ocean and verdant green valley panorama with Byron Bay's iconic lighthouse in the distance.
We have a beautiful home near the Crystal Castle five minutes drive from Mullumbimby with breathtaking views of the ocean and Byron Bay in the distance!
Situated on 22 acres of beautiful Byron Hinterland farm land and bordering a nature reserve, we have a great, private single room self contained apartment on the ground floor of our house for one or two guests.
The apartment has a basic kitchen, laundry, TV, queen size bed, fold out sofa lounge, wifi internet. Entrance is separate to the rest of the house which adds to the privacy. We often don't see guests after check in unless interested in a farm tour. The solar heated, rainwater shower and bath is outside in the garden so it may not suit everyone but anyone with an inner hippie will love it. It's our most popular feature and many return just for the shower! It's like showering under a warm water waterfall with fresh air and greenery all around. It suits nature lovers or naturists and not so suitable for anyone not comfortable with the idea of an outside shower.
We should point out we live directly upstairs and have a toddler so toddler noise might vibrate through the ceiling occasionly. We discount the rate slightly due to the potential noise although it hasn't been an issue so far.
The property is a working banana farm. Although we are not certified organic we manage the farm using natural systems ie. nutrient cycling with mulch and compost and we don't use chemicals. We harvest year round and love showing off the property and farming operation and sharing ideas about landscape management and sustainability, We always have lots of bananas for guests.
Over half the property is natural bushland with lots of wildlife including koalas, wallabies, echidnas, rare birds and frogs.
The property has some beautiful bushwalks including one to the top of our hill where you will see some of the best views in the region.
We are about a 20 min drive from Byron Bay and 15 minutes from the beaches of Brunswick Heads.
Rates start at $60 per night and vary according to seasonal demand. Longer term stays are welcome and very negotiable so if you're interested in accommodation for a month or more don't hesitate to contact us and ask questions or make an offer.
No rules here. We're hippies.
