The SpaceOur luxury hideaway is located on 30 acres, in the beautiful Tintenbar hills. Our farm has a small herd of cattle, native Davidson plums, a citrus orchard and vegetable gardens. We can accommodate 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen sized bed, and a (single) pull out sofa bed. There is also a nook in the bedroom where we can set up a child's bed or cot, giving both you and your little one your own space. Guest AccessGuests can also access the in-ground pool, with beautiful hinterland views. A short walk down the hill brings you to Emigrant Creek, where guests can swim, fish, or spot turtles (or perhaps the elusive resident platypus!). There is also a rustic shack on the river bank, perfect for picnics. When in season, guests are able to pick fruit and vegetables from the orchard and gardens. Interaction with GuestsThe hideaway is separate from the main house, but both Richard and Belinda are available to answer any questions you might have, and very happy to suggest outings around the Northern Rivers region. The NeighborhoodTintenbar is a lovely little village, with a well-equipped general store 3 kms away. The store sells everything you might need: newspapers, free-range eggs, meat from the renowned Lennox Head butcher, fresh local fruit and vegetables, wine and beer, and local delicacies such as Brookfarm muesli, locally grown coffee and home made preserves.
The historic local hall is located across the road from the general store and hosts regular music nights, exercise classes and other events such as trivia nights.
Killen Falls is a spectacular waterfall and swimming hole, located at the end of our road. There is also a paved walkway up to a viewing platform over the spillway of Emigrant Creek Dam.
The award-winning Harvest Cafe is located 5 mins drive away, and local favourite French restaurant Che Bon is even closer. The beach, restaurants and cafes of Lennox Head are 10 mins drive away, and Ballina/Byron airport is only 15 mins drive away. Beautiful Byron Bay is also close and handy, only a 20 min drive away. Getting AroundKillen Falls is walking distance, but if you want to visit the beautiful beaches of Lennox Head and Byron Bay and other wonders of the Northern Rivers you will need a car. The closest airport is Ballina/Byron, only 15 minutes away. The next closest is the Gold Coast airport, 1 hour drive away. If you need an airport pickup let us know and we can arrange to come and meet you. Other Things to NoteWe can provide basic necessities, so you don't need to rush to the shops straight away. For smaller children we have a cot and/or toddler bed and can provide a selection of age appropriate toys. We also have car seats available, if you are flying to the region and hiring a car once you're here.
Our hideaway comes equipped with books, board games, and DVDs (including kids DVDs), and we also provide beach towels if you're heading to one of the beautiful local beaches.
Farmer Richard is also happy to show people around our small working farm, and have the kids help feed the cows some hay, if that is of interest.
