The space

A large room is available in an airy, modern house set among bushland out of town. Pristine beaches are a walk away. The room has a queen size double bed and doors that open on to a verandah. There is the possibility of booking a large room with two single beds instead. Both can be available to extend the accommodation to 4 people. Please contact us if this is an option you are interested in. We will assume all bookings are for the room with a queen size bed unless we are told otherwise.

The rooms are in an open plan house with guest bathroom. There is a sun room which looks out over the large bushland garden. There is an artists printmaking and painting studio in the grounds with printing presses.

Kangaroos and wallabies visit the garden and the sound of birds and the ocean are ever present. We have inquisitive chickens roaming the grounds in the afternoon. There is covered parking and we are classic car friendly and touring motorbike friendly. The owner is a club member in both cases. We have a barbeque under cover.

The location is halfway between Sydney and Brisbane, 7 kms south of the nearest town. There is easy access from the Pacific Highway. We can pick up from the local station on the Sydney-Brisbane line if required. The airport is 25 minutes drive away.

The area is popular in the tourist season and offers pristine beaches, fishing, water-sports, swimming, surfing, and kite surfing. The nearby pretty town of Bellingen is known for its cafes and restaurants. A short drive into the mountains brings you to Dorrigo. Well known for the spectacular drive along Waterfall Way. This road is loved by bikies and car enthusiasts. There is a rainforest walk at Dorrigo. Train fans will find a large number of old steam locos there to photograph.

The host is internationally known artist, printmaker and illustrator and there is original artwork on the walls. Home cooked Japanese meals are available with some notice.

David and Kiyomi are lovely hosts. The house is located in a very beautiful and tranquil area and it is just a short walk to an almost private beach. We had such a relaxing time, enjoying walks and swims at the local beaches and visiting the local villages of Urunga, Bellingen …

The glass viewing window is amazingly especially when it rains. You cannot help but calm down and take in the natural way to look at life.
