RainbowStay is on the Nimbin Road between Lismore City (18km) & Nimbin Village (8km) in the quiet rural hamlet of Coffee Camp, not far from the mystical Nimbin Rocks with local bus services at the front gates.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house is quirky and eclectic, and located in a gorgeous part of the world. The view from the deck is amazing. It is in the middle of pretty much nowhere (a great getaway if you want a break!) - the closest town, Nimbin, has an interesting reputation, and is only very small. The host, Geoffrey, seemed genuine when we met him upon checkout. There were a few things that were a bit disappointing. The kitchen isn't very well stocked, missing important implements like tongs. The pots and pans were quite old. At night, the lighting is dull and insufficient (it feels quite dark and dingy - nothing like in the photos - but has the potential to look like it does in the photos!). The towels were rough and smelled like smoke, and the sheets on the single bed were old and severely pilled (also we were asked NOT to strip the beds when we left, which is an odd request!) It wasn't our thing, but if you are willing to forego some niceties for the price, there is nothing really wrong with this place. It didn't ruin our weekend. It's not somewhere I'd stay again - but this is probably more personal preference than anything.

  • We decided this is the best rented accommodation we have ever stayed in. I highly recommend it. The house is beautiful and there is no tackiness at all (which never seems to be the case with places I have stayed in before). Lovely pieces of furniture throughout, vibrant colours and original art deco design. The surrounding landscape is incredible, which we only felt like observing from the balcony because we just wanted to relax at home. Geoffrey was a great host with a wealth of knowledge about the surroundings that he generously imparted onto us.

  • This is a really great country getaway for bizoids like us, families, couples whatever. There are plenty of walks, stunning scenery from the balcony for a chardy or two, and the good people of nearby Nimbin and the smaller villages dotted through the hills are the kindest, nicest bunch. Our host made us feel at home on the spot and nothing was too much trouble. Little extras like a local paper dropped in each day, some dry wood for the fire on rainy days made the stay easy, and good advice on what to see in the region helped us make the best of our week, but was never intrusive.
    We loved it on this trip mid-winter, looking forward to coming back in summer to enjoy the pool and catch up with Geoff and Ma-belle again

  • We had a fabulous time in an exquisite setting with wildlife all around. The owner was really friendly and knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. He treated us like family and made our stay memorable.The surroundings are incredible with natural scenery, numerous nearby attractions( art galleries, villages, rainforest walks) and the house sports a long comfortable verandah and the swimming pool is as good as it looks in the photos. So nice to stay in a house with some personal touches. Will definitely be returning.

I left Australia in my twenties to backpack around Europe as one did. I then lived and worked in London in finance and continued holidaying abroad, in the Middle East, America, Asia, Russia. My career reincarnated through a friend into running a Bed & Breakfast from my Central London flat for many years. I enjoyed hosting people from all over the world and I returned home to Australia in 2001 with the intention of setting up a self-sustaining holiday retreat. I founded RainbowStay in one of the most beautiful and ecologically diverse areas of the world and in 2010, with the installation of a solar array on the roof, the property became fully self-sustaining. It's now a popular retreat for South East Queenslanders as well as a strategic base for international guests to explore the Northern Rivers of New South Wales and in particular, the Rainbow Region of Lismore and Byron Bay.
