Great check-in experience95% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Semi-rural self-contained retreat on the edge of Goonellabah. Close to Lismore (quirky, artsy, eclectic), yet only a modest drive to the beaches (Ballina, Lennox Head, and Byron Bay.) Your space features a comfortable queen bedroom and living area, and has an Asian-influenced decor. It includes a private patio and back yard coupled with access to a small orchard where fruit can be picked, and a lily pond. Relax and listen to the nocturnal chirping of frogs, or check out the night life.
