Hello from Adele and Dennis in Bellingen , Australia. . We enjoy sharing our unique home here in this beautiful rainforest country . Dennis, my husband, and I have travelled both in Australia and overseas, often staying at BnB's and thoroughly enjoyed the very REAL experience of being with "Locals" who knew their area, and culture - a very different experience altogether and far more comfortably homely than impersonal, glossy hotels ! I determined then that this was something I wanted to do on retirement; we both enjoy meeting people, and sharing our home and over the last 18 months have had many visitors here. Advertising is a new venture, time to broaden our horizons !
If we were to have a Life motto, it would be to make the best of every day in every way!
We came to Bellingen on holiday a few years ago, and stayed, as many people have! It has such an old world charm, atmosphere and energy, and is home to many celebrities- creative writers, artists, media personalities etc. The village hosts five major music events each year, from World to Reggae, Jazz and folk and caters for all tastes /activities with a popular 9 hole golf course, bush walking, canoeing on picturesque Bellinger River, swimming, and fishing. We also have an amazing, well known market on 3RD Sat each month, where the many local artisans sell their work.
There are not so many of these unique villages left, not a Macca's in sight !
You will be assured of a warm welcome with us, we will respect your desire for privacy or share what we have with you, by invitation !
Your room is well stocked with books, magazines and music, plus info on bush walks, canoeing etc, so whatever YOU want to do is pretty much catered for.Just sit in the garden and read if you wish ! We enjoy our tree screened home, furnished in an Asian eclectic style, and surrounded by rain forest gardens. I cook up a pretty mean Beef Mussaman when the occasion demands!
We look forward to meeting you.... Adele and Dennis.
