We bought this house 6 years ago in good part because we loved the lush, green rainforest gardens and the privacy these afford as well as the eclectic, architect designed pole house The BnB is delightfully furnished, great pillowtop Queen bed etc. This whole area is beautifully rich in rain forest plants, birds, water dragons and even a friendly local Koala who often runs across our lawns and LOVES posing for pics ! We cater very generously, and enjoy spoiling our guests a little ! BnB's are so much more personal and peaceful than motels- we stay in them ourselves when we have a break for that very reason. Let us spoil you !
There is a regular bus service to Coffs Hbr and surrounds, the Coffs Hbr airport is just a 20 min drive away from Bellingen, Urunga Rail approx a 12 min drive, We are an easy walking distance to town, cafes and
shops , river, parks and most of the activities mentioned previously. Come see for yourself- you won't be disapointed!
