The SpaceWe chose a super-comfy bed and lounge because those are always our favourite places to relax, we also like to be able to have the space to prepare our own food. The laundry is handy too!
The space is very quiet and private, and is not over-looked. Guest Access- - Arriving and Parking
There is ample street parking for guests at the front of the house. If you're towing and are taking a couple of nights off (we know how you feel!) there is limited parking for vans and boats about 200 meters away.
If you're here to work, we are happy to accommodate unusual check-in times. Interaction with Guests- - Say Hello!
We're friendly and approachable, and can answer most questions about the local area. We really enjoy meeting our guests! The Neighborhood- - About Lismore
Lismore is the largest city in the north of NSW. The city itself features sports facilities, cafes and restaurants by the dozen, and you can shop 'till you drop for anything from funky fashion to antiques and old wares. There are markets just about every day, and every second Sunday is the famous Lismore Car Boot Market.
The area is also the business centre of the region, with every major bank and government service, car dealership and service provider. There's also two major hospitals and numerous specialist healthcare services.
The Southern Cross University campus less than 5 minutes drive away, as is the Goonellabah Shopping Village with two supermarkets, cafes and stores, two gyms, pool and leisure centre.
Further afield, about 30 minutes of driving in one direction will get you to the most spectacular beaches in the world (we're biased) at Byron Bay, Ballina and Lennox Head. In the other direction, you'll find the rainforest gateway towns of Nimbin or Kyogle and opportunities for hiking, bushwalking, and watering holes galore! Getting Around- - Getting Around
Whilst there are bus services into Lismore and to Ballina, the Gold Coast and beyond, driving is the primary mode of transport in the area. If like a walk for exercise, the Goonellabah Shopping Centre is a stout 15 minute walk (we, and the neighbours do it regularly!).
The Lismore area is well serviced by air, with REX servicing the Lismore airport three times a day, numerous carriers flying from Ballina direct to Sydney, Newcastle and Melbourne daily, and dozens of domestic and international services from the Gold Coast, which is about about 75 minutes away.
