The SpaceYou’ll find rest as well as convenience to access this exquisite coastal and hinterland area.
Wander up to your abode along the path lined with bananas, papaya, avocado, fig, dragon fruit, galangal, frangipani, azaleas, roses and gardenia, meander down and catch the view of beautiful boulders beach.
Stepping over the little bridge you enter your private wing of the house into the combined space of lounging and eating. With a 2 seater lounge and a well-designed kitchenette, you have all you need to cook up a storm or heat and eat simply whilst lounging. Basics like premium tea, coffee and seasonings are provided, with mint for infusions greeting you in the garden by the bridge.
As you move from room to room, original artworks, from China, Japan, and your host, Suzie, catch your eye.
With a 4 metre high cathedral ceiling sloping down to the large bay window and bamboo floors, the light filled bedroom is a treat, furnished with a Queen size bed accompanied by a rocking chair looking out to your paved courtyard. A skylight provides you with a view of the night-sky, or cloud watching whilst lying in bed. Linen, including beach-towels, are supplied.
Natural floor surfaces of bamboo and wood are complemented with stone flooring in the bathroom and toilet areas. Rich green marble and cream travertine line the kitchen and vanity, and enhance the deep two person Mizuno Japanese style bathtub.
An assortment of books are there for the browsing, with Wi-fi available if you want to be connected with your other life. A small TV/DVD player is available with some DVDs.
Nature sounds of frogs, geckos laughing, exquisite bird calls, and the ocean are all background acoustics. Oh, and you might occasionally catch the neighbours chooks clucking, though fortunately there is no rooster that wakes us up!
If you would like to have access to massage/ bodywork, acupuncture or other health wellbeing services during your stay, or experience a Chinese or Japanese Tea Ceremony, chat with Vigi and he can tell you more.
‘Boulders Bloom’ is a non-smoking property. It is also a shoes free house. We are in a generally quiet neighbourhood, and we ask our guests to respect our neighbours and blend in.
Your rest-filled and revitalizing abode is only a 5 minutes’ drive or a leisurely 20 minute walk to the famous Lennox beaches, Lennox Point/ headland, or the Village shops and café’s/restaurants. The local bus service’s bus stop is only a few minutes’ walk away, if you decided you wanted to get around that way. If you’d prefer to ride a bike, we have one you can borrow. A few minutes north by car takes you to Lake Ainsworth, an exquisite tea tree lake. Come here to swim with the ducks, float and watch the big sky sunset, or dip in and out of the water all day and hang out under the trees in between.
‘Boulders Bloom’ is approximately 20 minutes south of Byron Bay (take the coast road) and 10 minutes north of Ballina. There are plenty of really good local restaurants, sights, waterfalls, beaches and other fantastic things to do all at your doorstep.

Other Things to NoteThe path to our place is steep so is not suitable to people with mobility restrictions. You are rewarded with beautiful views on your walk down from your apartment...:) The driveway is short (around 4 metres), but steep so is better suited to bigger cars and/or experienced drivers. You can easily park at the street level and walk up a staircase and we can also help you with luggage.
