We LOVED this beautiful cottage in the Byron Hinterland. Kim could not have been more welcoming or lovely. You won't regret picking this gorgeous hideaway!
Ndoto is a great place to stay to get away from the busyness of life, whilst still being within easy distance of the surrounding Byron Hinterland.
The accommodation was clean and had a nice rustic character. It was great for us including our dog.
Kim and Chris were very welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed our stay and we would like to visit again.
Ndoto is a beautiful cottage in a fantastic location just out of the town of Federal. The cottage itself is a lovely place to spend time and has everything you could need. The verandah is a great spot to relax on - with partial views of the surrounding hinterland Little extras like regular fresh eggs are a lovely touch (although we didnt need any we were often asked). Hosts Kim and Chris are the perfect hosts - making us comfortable, letting us know of what was happening in the area and what to do ( Pizza night in Federal, a massage for my wife's birthday) and even giving my wife a gift for her birthday. There are 2 dogs and 2 puppies for dog lovers , 12 alpacas and even a semi resident koala that passes through the property every few weeks! Its just a beautiful spot to stay with fantastic hosts making it even better. We loved staying there and cant recommend it highly enough.
The cottage was absolute perfection and Kim & Chris are very welcoming and warm hosts. Its such a stunning part of the world, and the cottage is set in the best of it. Thanks so much guys we'll definitely be back when we can!
Our hosts Kim & Chris were very accommodating, accepting a booking from us at the last minute. We stayed there in September 2014, looking for some rest & relaxation. Kim & Chris were most welcoming & lovely, ensuring we were comfortable & had everything that we needed, the cottage was just beautiful, it is fully self contained & very comfortable. Federal is an amazing part of this world, set in the Byron Bay hinterland, it felt very secluded but is only about 30 mins to the beaches.
We took our dogs with us (they had a ball & loved running around on the property) & there are some really good dog beaches not too far away. Thank you Kim & Chris, we had a lovely time!
We had such a wonderful stay at ndoto and would suggest it to anyone wanting a peaceful retreat close to Byron Bay.What a gorgeous cottage we feel very lucky to have stayed in this place.Not only was the cottage perfectly set up for us but Kim and Chris had also left us eggs from their chooks,fresh bread,delicious musli and other treats. I forgot to mention their beautiful property and the gorgeous village of federal which is (website hidden) is truly a beautiful place to stay. Thankyou again we would love to stay again one day :)
From the minute we turned onto Bates road and drove down to the Nodoto cottage we knew we had stepped into our own little paradise! It was everything & more that it looked in the pictures on the website!
On arrival we felt so at home with the beautiful oil burner going... The flowers & fresh eggs & other goodies waiting for us was such a lovely surprise. The cottage meet our expectations in every way and there is nothing we would change about our experience only that we wish we had stayed longer!
Thank you so much for your hospitality! We will definitely recommend this beautiful hidden cottage & we can't wait to come back!

We were so pleased we stayed here. Originally intended to stay at Byron Bay but never regretted staying in the hinterland at Kim and Chris's. Very thoughtful hosts. Cottage fantastic. Lots to do in the region including local village markets, beaches and wonderful drives through a network of villages and small towns. Kim arranged massages for us just ten minutes away (great price) fantastic! The Challon worth a visit especially on Sunday afternoon with music at the local pub on the riverbank. Ideal spot in winter with mid 20s temperature. Highly recommend!!
We stayed at Ndoto on our Honeymoon and it was everything we wanted it to be! Secluded, modern but cosy and in a magnificent setting (seriously, the views around this part of the world are stunning). The cottage is very well appointed and a pleasant space to be in. In addition to this, there is plenty to see and do in the area and many great places to eat.
Kim and her husband Chris are top rate hosts! They are very very welcoming and generous. We were sad to say goodbye and hope to stay again in the future!
I can't recommend Ndoto highly enough!
Thank you Chris and Kim for providing such a beautiful retreat in Ndoto cottage. Surrounded by such spectacular landscape it was truely a pieceful experience. We stayed 3 nights but wish it could have been much longer.
The cottage itself is decorated beautifully and is very accomodating.
Chris and Kim both make you feel very welcome and are just a stones throw away if you need anything. Our experience was a fantastic one and we highly recommend Ndoto for anyone seeking a relaxing escape.
Thank you Stacy for the wonderful review. It is really helpful for us.
Take care and we hope to see you again another time.
