The space

The Forest Cabin is a natural hideaway, perfect for couples, or singles, wanting privacy in natural beauty. The timber, carved cabin with large glass windows, is nestled within the Australian sub tropical rain forest, in the hinterland of Byron Bay.

The cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, a beautiful outside bathroom to bathe and shower under the stars. Simple luxury.

There is NO MOBILE RECEPTION, however, you have the use of the landline phone (honesty system).

WIFI is available for Internet access. The eco, composting, squat loo has a forest view and is situated outside in a small out house not far from the outdoor bathroom.

The cabin has a TV for watching movies only as there is no television reception. We suggest to bring movies with you or you can use some of the Bali dvds provided in the cabin. There is a small selection of books to read also.

The water in the cabin is rain water, triple filtered and is suitable for drinking, bathing and cooking.

This setting is ideal for nature lovers and those who wish to retreat in nature for a quiet, peaceful getaway.

To keep the grounds neat and tidy we have a grounds maintenance person come each Tuesday, starting in the morning, for around 3 hours (this includes time spent at another house further down the road). Also each Tuesday fortnight we have a gardener that comes to work on the gardens around the house.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the whole cabin, outdoor bathroom & cabin yard.

Interaction with guests

I am available via Airbnb message or mobile if you need any further information throughout your stay. You have full private access to this cabin.

The neighborhood

The cabin is situated on a Multiple Occupancy property which is owned by local musicians, artists and yoga teachers. Each of the houses are located so that they are private from one another and blend in with the natural surrounds.

Not far away you will find Minyon Falls in the Nightcap National Park. Great for bush walking, viewing the falls from the top, having picnics or just chilling out in nature.

If you feel like heading to the beach, you have the choice of Brunswick Heads with a long, beautiful beach and stunning river or Byron Bay with a variety of beaches to choose from.

If you feel like browsing through some interesting towns and villages, visit Mullumbimby or Bangalow. Beaches, villages and towns are with a 35 minute radius.

Getting around

Due to the location cabin guests will need their own car.

Wow - everything was absolutely fantastic. So secluded - having a hot shower or bath under the stars to the sounds of the rainforest is such an awesome and relaxing experience - we miss it already. Day trips to everywhere each day ( mullumbimby, federal, Byron etc) - lunch at Doma in Federal and The Treehouse her Byron were also highlights, as was just having a wine or three in the evening rainforest quiet. Can't wait to return.

Surely up there with one of the best Airbnb experiences to be had anywhere in the world! The photos don't do the location justice, breathtaking view over the hinterland and totally secluded, we felt a million miles from anywhere. So much to do within a 30 minute drive (great towns such as Mullum and Bangalow and stunning beaches at Brunswick or Byron) but the hardest part is leaving the cabin as it's so heavenly. Outdoor stone bath under the starts an absolute highlight. Perfect spot for a romantic escape, better than any 5 star hotel!

Our trip was cancelled due to closed roads to the property during the cyclone. Our host kindly rebooked our trip for a later date. Looking forward to it!

My partner and I are already talking about an outside shower for our backyard. The cabin is an immaculate example of a native getaway. Liz looked after us throughout our stay and went above and beyond to help us with places around the area and alternate directions to suit the weather conditions. Hard to leave. Thanks for the lovely stay

My own personal much needed retreat could not have been more perfectly located than at this cabin. Absolutely serene, I felt like i was in the Garden of Eden. Each night in the outdoor bath watching the sky change colour and the stars come out, the birds, the breeze and the quiet... I will definitely be back! I feel soothed and centred and so grateful for the magic of this space.

The forest cabin is such a beautiful retreat. It's quiet, beautiful and probably the most relaxing place on earth. You can sit out the front with a glass of wine and just watch how peaceful nature is all around you. It really feels like you're in the movie 'Fern Gully'. The outside bath and shower are also great, helping you really get in touch with your inner flower child. Definitely the place to go if you are looking for a romantic get away. 10/10 would visit again.
