Interaction with Guests
I am here to greet my guests and show them around. I spend quite a bit of time letting my guests know what to do in the area and also lots of friendly chit chat sometimes over a glass of wine and a meal. I also vanish to my studio to give my guests their private time
My neighbourhood has short walks to nature areas such as a waterway with water-lilies, water dragons and lots of bird life. There are bush tracks at the top of the hill beyond the graveyard (an interesting spot in itself). If you are an early bird you can see the sunrise entering through the mist along the river. For the night owls you can stay up and touch the milky way amongst all of the glittering stars.
It is certainly a bonus to have a car as the extended areas are best as driving excursions. There is a bus into Coffs Harbour. From the Coffs Harbour airport there is a taxi and an occasional bus both of which are expensive. If arriving by greyhound bus or train there is a stop in Urunga which is serviced by a bus during the day coming up to Bellingen otherwise you prearrange with me for pick up.
Mindful of facilities and equipment, turning heating/cooling off when not in room, locking doors.
Anne is a warm welcoming host with a comfortable home. Merryn & I stayed for two nights initially, then came back later, we had had such a lovely stay - a real home away from home! Anne is definitely someone we would stay with again!
I had a really nice short stay here. Anne did everything to make me feel at home, had a nice comfy bed\room. I loved her homemade bread for breakfast!
I am so pleased I stayed at Anne’s place on the 6th and 7th July. Anne’s home truly feels like home, my bedroom was private, quaint, clean and all of the things I love. There is spa, sauna and outdoor shower in her backyard – I used the sauna one cool afternoon. The location was brilliant, I walked to town through the quiet hillside street and past the creek. The neighbourhood is so friendly and beautiful. I spent an afternoon on the front balcony with a view of the hillside. Anne is such a lovely, warm and welcoming host. By the end of my 2 nights stay, I didn’t want to leave. Anne, thank you sincerely, your guest Valerie.
We had a delightful stay with Anne in Bellingen. Her place is in a quiet street, not far from the town centre...easy to get around from there. Our room was at the top of the house & had everything we needed, as well as a very comfortable bed! We found Anne down to earth & welcoming from the word go & would hope to stay with her again, should we be back in Bellingen one day.
I found Anne to be so warm and welcoming and staying in her house felt very homely...Thank you Anne! Whenever I head down to Bello again, i will be sure to stay with you again! The bedroom is cosy and peaceful, I slept so well there!
Anne was very accommodating at short notice. The room was beautiful with high, beamed ceilings, lots of space, a glorious view, and a bed that made me feel like a princess. Anne made me feel very welcome with local knowledge, a chat and a cuppa.
Mystical mountain is as described, we had a great adventure. Bellingen is such a great place, coffee shops and cafes everywhere. The cold weather and mulled wine at a cafe simply delicious.
About the Host, Anne
I am a young at heart mature age girl. I am easy going and love to provide for peoples comfort and relaxation. I am still pursuing my life long excusion into pottery and sculpture so I will no doubt greet you with clay smothered hands. I put a lot of love into my two cats so they are the happiest cats you have ever seen and they love to meet new people especially to share a smooch. I am always willing to share a meal especially if you're cooking.
I have done enough travelling to want to just stay put for a while. I love wine o'clock on my deck to take in the sunset over 'old man dreaming' across the Dorrigo mountain range.
