It is a 10 minute drive to Minyon falls and the Whian Whian National Park, and a short scenic drive to all the surrounding towns and beaches.
All the positive reviews are true. The place is magnificent. Deep in the forest overlooking a beautiful creek. I took my fiancee here after proposing to her in Byron. Marvellous. Marie was very responsive and helpful to all my questions which was superb. Very romantic place. We had one issue though, our stay at this beautiful place seemed to coincide with a teenage high school party at a house further up the driveway. The loud music kind of detracted a bit from the experience on one night. The following night, no music, so we realised how great the place is. I'd definitely go back.
What can I say - we absolutely loved this place and felt so spoilt to be in such a beautiful space. Every aspect of the property has had thought and care put into it, and it was also sparkling clean and ready for our stay with everything we needed. The beautiful gardens, the spacious decks, the comfortable couches and day beds, the bubbling creek down the valley and all the many other small features makes the entire place feel like your own private sanctuary. We had a perfect break and will definitely be back again ! Highly highly recommend.
As other guests have said, this place is unforgettable. A really special place that was so relaxing and the perfect place to recharge the batteries. Marie was a great host, everything was left perfectly for us, I can't say enough about the whole experience. Can't wait to go back!!!
This is one of the situations where the pictures, although great, don't do the property justice. The place is even better in real life! We got here and didn't want / need to leave. I could rave and go on and on about how much we loved it. Our host Marie was super kind and accommodating as well. This is one of our favorite places we've ever stayed...and the bed was one of the most comfortable. A serene and magical place. A great place to just go, be, hang out, make food, and have your own private secluded space. If you're concerned about the entirety of the bathroom being outside, don't be. It becomes a non-issue ten minutes after you're there. You'll love it. The fantastic hike of Minyon Falls being just ten minutes away was an extra added logistically lucky bonus! The colorful character of the Mullumbimby Farmers Market on Saturdays just 20 minutes away was terrific too...just be careful not to spend too much on all the awesome fresh and prepared foods like we did.
One of the most amazing places I've ever stayed at. If you want to get away from the hectic pace of the modern world, this is your place. Felt like we were the only people on earth.
Beautiful, stunning, amazing. We really enjoyed this property. You couldn't get any closer to nature (unless you wanted to camp). We will be back!
The house is wonderful and Marie has been very convinient.
If you're looking for a restful house cut of from the outter world, go for it!
Great place to stay. Perfect for a secluded weekend getaway. Hope to be back soon.
The pictures don't do this place justice. Stunning, and so private. We had such a lovely time and will be going back!
