The SpaceThis is a breezy, compact, ground floor, simply furnished bedroom, (1 queen bed) built ins, seperate bathroom, and sitting room with T.V., and sunny patio with lovely hinterland views, in spacious, 2 storey beachside townhouse on far north coast of N.S.W. Australia.
5-10mins walk to beaches on safe pathways and bike trails, or about 60seconds in the car.
We provide some basic breakfast cereals and milk, along with a variety of herbal teas and coffee (both instant and pods) and some bickies, for those who wish to partake. There is a bar fridge and a small webber BBQ if U need to store food items, drinks or cook. Our upstairs area is private, therefore we don't offer use of our kitchen.
Visitors must be dog friendly, as we have 3 dogs. (2 greyhound rescues and 1 whippet). They live inside/outside and may want to interact with you. They are friendly and house trained!
Your room is private, but the sitting room and bathroom may be shared from time to time as we need to access other rooms via this space, or my massage clients may share the toilet facilities occasionally. We endeavour to keep your areas as private as possible.
We prefer female visitors but will consider couples, or professional people on short term work assignments, and travellers over 30 years of age, however I can asses everyone individually. A substantial airbnb profile and previous reviews are desirable and of great assistance. This is a gay friendly household.
Street parking available only. Strictly NON smokers only. Health regulations prevent smoking on the premises or property grounds. Guest AccessBedroom, sitting room, Laundry, bathroom, patios, BBQ, all on the downstairs level. Interaction with GuestsWe will interact as necessary. There are separate upstairs/downstairs living areas, and we have decided to keep our upstairs area including the kitchen, private. There is a bar fridge, coffee/tea making facilities and small webber BBQ for your use downstairs.
I tend to leave guests to have their own privacy but I'm happy to interact and give advice re exploring the area, or have a coffee, drink or chat, depending on what you prefer with your own kind of holiday.
Your bedroom is private, however, we need access at times, to the sitting room and patio area, as the massage room, laundry and study area adjacent the guest room are all located downstairs. My massage clients and I will may use the downstairs bathroom at certain times, so that is a shared space. However, we respect our guests needs and keep things to a minimum. The NeighborhoodThis is a safe, secure, quiet residential neighbourhood. Great proximity to explore beaches, waterways and surrounding hinterland. My house is a few minutes stroll to endless beaches, 5mins by car to Lennox Head, Ballina, and 20minutes drive to famous Byron Bay.
Visit local markets in Ballina, Lennox Head, or Byron, or learn to surf, go scuba diving, and kayaking available within easy reach. Great for bike riding on and off road, hiking, many photo opportunities along the coastal stretch. Watch the hump back whale migration during our cooler months and check out the rest of the local flora and fauna.
Interesting nightlife, live music and wide range of venues, cafes and restaurants available locally. Many music festivals such as the very popular Easter Blues Festival, Splendour, or the Falls Fest are based nearby in Byron and local towns.
It's 10-15 minutes drive to major shopping centres such as Coles and Woollies. Bus stops are a few hundred metres walk away, but a car or bike is essential to get to the nearby towns easily or if you are energetic, its about 30-40mins walk, with magnificant panorama to Lennox Head and East Ballina on coastal walking paths, or hiking trails. 10mins drive to Ballina/Byron Bay Airport, 1hr drive to Gold Coast/Coolangatta Airport.
Remedial Massage is available on the premises to start your holiday off in a relaxing way by the host who runs a clinic downstairs. Massage incurs extra cost and pre booking is essential. Getting AroundThere is a bus stop within a few hundred metres and a great new bike/walking path all the way to Ballina, but a car is advisable for easy transportation to shops and cafes and other services, as the public transport is not great. Other Things to NoteSmokers are not welcome.
