"Well, we've hit the jackpot here!" is a comment from a recent guest on arrival at "A Room at Carrington"!

Although there is much to see and do in the area, take your time to start the day with complimentary toast/spreads for breakfast.

Centrally located between Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Brunswick Heads, Lennox Head, Ballina & Lismore, the house is in a quiet suburban street and has ample (very safe) on-street parking. Public transport is limited, particularly on weekends ~ your visit will be greatly enhanced if you have access to a car.
Although Pete and I will most likely be home, your area is separate and your privacy will be respected. Having said that, we're friendly, have lived in the area for years and are happy to help make your vacation a great one.
And don't forget, the well-renowned Bangalow Market is on the 4th Sunday of the month.

If you are at the start of your Airbnb journey, it would be appreciated if you could please send a short note prior to booking so that we can get to know each other a little before we meet. Thank you.
We have just returned from a 3 night stay at "Carrington" and have to say it was all that we required. The room is spacious and airy, although perhaps a fan is not enough when Bangalow is experiencing those hot, sticky days. Sandy is a charming, unobtrusive host, and the house is very quiet. The verandah is a lovely addition and the perfect place to sit and chill, read or enjoy a glass of wine. Location to Bangalow excellent and we found it very easy to drop down there for breakfasts. It is good value and we would have no hesitation in recommending it. Thank you Sandy!

We enjoyed our stay in Sandy's comfortable room, and appreciated her homely decor. Sandy was friendly but unobtrusive, and we would recommend "Carrington" to anyone seeking a pleasant, affordable, convenient place to stay in the Northern Rivers.
Totally enjoyed our stay at Sandy's B & B. Sandy was a warm, friendly host who had the right balance of being available if needed but leaving us to enjoy our stay. The room was spacious and comfortable with everything we could need and the house was well located - an easy walk to cafes etc. Thanks again. It was a lovely stay.
Sandy was very welcoming, you felt like you were in your own home almost.
There were lots of things that gave you the sense of the personnel touch and everything had been thought of.
The whole stay was fantastic made so by Sandy, the outside verandah was awesome!
Sandy made us most welcome, and her house is just lovely. She has the knack of "being there" but not being intrusive. We really enjoyed her beautiful room with all its interesting bits and pieces, and sitting on our own section of her verandah looking at her immaculate garden.
Our room at the Carrington B&B was so homely & inviting. The bed was so comfy & the room was a good size. Our host, Sandy gave us a warm welcome upon our late arrival & was always friendly & helpful with anything we needed to know about the area. It was fun leaving messages on the chalkboard to Sandy to let her know if we needed more coffee for the next day etc... Sandy has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable with everything you need & more. We highly recommend choosing the Carrington B&B in Bangalow for your next holiday destination. The location was great, just a short stroll to the town centre. Bangalow, Byron Bay & the surrounding towns we're very accessible & the Hinterlands & Beaches were amazingly beautiful.
We booked the cottage for our friends, while visiting the area. Sandy was really nice with all of us and was happy to meet our friends. They thought the cottage was very charming and comfy. Sandy was helpful and she even provided a compost bin for our friends.
The cottage is also well located: it's within a walking distance from the centre of Bangalow.
Thanks again for your hospitality Sandy!
What a wonderful experience! The place was stunning with tropical gardens and the most lovely room and bathroom cleverly decorated and a very comfy bed! Sandy welcomed us warmly and showed us all the ins and outs, and very kindly invited us to join her family on Christmas morning :) We are so glad we made the decision to stay here, it couldn't have been a better Christmas anywhere else. Highly recommend this place, thank you Sandy!
I had arranged this place for my mother as we were having a family gathering nearby. It worked perfectly. Sandy was very helpful and my mother was delighted with her room.
Sandy's 'Carrington' in Bangalow was absolutely gorgeous. The accommodation was immaculate and extremely comfortable with everything as per Airbnb description. We loved the peace and quiet particularly enjoying our own private covered veranda where we ate breakfast, enjoyed a cuppa, read and just generally relaxed - it was a hard spot to leave each morning to start our touring of the local area (and even as far as Queensland). Bangalow town is a delight with lots of interesting shops and cafes to explore. We are so very happy we chose to stay with Sandy instead of a motel at Byron Bay which we realized would not have offered the same sublime relaxation of Bangalow. Sandy was a very lovely and helpful host and we enjoyed the fact that we had heaps of privacy. Do yourself a favour and book with Sandy so you too can enjoy the comfy, very beautifully decorated accommodation and the awesome patio - your own little slice of heaven amidst a truly beautiful garden. Thanks Sandy for making our holiday a very special one.
