The SpaceWhite Light is character home with the most divine energy on 5 glorious acres, set among the undulating hills of the Wooton Valley. Pets are very welcome. It's not 5 star, but it is a million stars at night in the clear country sky, and it is our most favourite place it the world. It is clean and well equipped and heavenly - be prepared for a unique experience...oh and we'll even throw in the linen. Just escape the hustle of city life to truly experience how special it is. We encourage a minimum 2 nights stay, but if staying one night an additional cleaning fee/linen fee applies. Please ask when booking White Light is just 20 minutes from the iconic Seal Rocks, with Cellito and Treachery surfing beaches, family-friendly Elizabeth beach, 7 mile beac and even Shelly Beach where you can get your gear off, all less than half an hour away. It easily sleeps 6 and has 3 bedrooms with a queen bed, double and two singles, plus a huge spa bath bathroom and separate toilet, wrap-around verandah, fully equipped kitchen with brand new Blanco cooker, laundry with washing machine, spacious lounge with massive wood burning combustion fire with firewood supplied, outside bbq and table and much more. Far off the beaten track, on an long unsealed road, with just one neighbour on call if you need anything, White Light is truly private, great for families wanting to just chill and reconnect. There's heaps of books, games and entertainment, and fabulous bushwalks at your door. There's a small telly if you must - but we don't. It's nice to get away from the electrics and computer games. There's deliberately no Wi Fi - but you can dongle if you have one. This home is all about getting back to nature - and enjoying time to just be. If you don't see a Wallaby while you stay here, your eyes aren't open. We can't guarantee it - but every time we are up there we always see at least one. A walk early morning or dusk are good times to go spotting. King parrots, kookies, the occasional koala, goana, billabys, eagles and a menagerie of aussie locals play all around. There's even chickens in the coup - and fresh eggs if you're nice to them! White Light has solar power, plus full electrical co backup so there is never any dramas around supply. Dogs and cats are welcome - but please keep big dogs outside. The property is fenced - but only cattle fencing, as is the country way. There is a dam - in a fenced off paddock, but its not for swimming. Because of its private setting, and location, its best not to bring toddlers, kids that aren't risk aware or anyone who may need fast medical assistance. MINIMUM 2 NIGHTS BOOKING PREFERRED - Additional cleaning/linen fee for 1 night stay. Guest AccessGuests are welcome to use all facilities, including all games and books. The house is yours to enjoy. Don't forget to bring your food with you as the nearest shop is in Bugwahl - 15 minutes away. The pantry is stocked with basics, in case you need a bit of this and that. There's a kennel and bits and pieces for dogs and cats too - but you're best to bring their own mats. It is best to arrive during daylight hours to make it easier for you to find. Interaction with GuestsThis is our holiday home too - we live in Sydney. So if you're staying there, we're not. Its all yours. However, we have very helpful neighbours to help if you need anything. Other than that you are surrounded by properties of 100 acres and more. So enjoy the peace. The NeighborhoodThis really is a unique and spiritually uplifting part of Australia. Our yoga friends love it as it has a certain calm and sense of spirit. The farms and lush greenery surrounding our place, the bush-walks right on the door, the tranquil Smiths Lakes and the plethora of world class beaches just 20 minutes away make this an amazing get-way. Its a great place to base yourself for family and friends fun. Just bring your pushbikes, your fishing gear and kayaks for the lakes and your swimmers for the beach - and you're off! Getting AroundYou will need a car/motorbike/van - or wheels of some sort to get here. But not a pushbike- unless you're super fit, super mad or both! The road leading up to our place is unsealed, but you won't need a 4WD - just take your time. Forster is about 40 minutes away, Smiths Lakes and Seal Rocks about 20 minutes, and the closest local hub is Bulledulah. Its less than 3 hours from Sydney - or if you're coming in from Newcastle airport its about 1 1/2 hours drive. If you book, please follow my email instructions following your booking to get there. It's important to do this as your sat nav will take you the wrong way. To get there, from Sydney, get on the pacific highway - F3 and head past newcastle, towards Brisbane. Go over the Hexam overpass - just keep on the pacific highway...til you go past bulladelah turn off (new) then about 2 kms past is a turning to the left to Wootton/topi topi.... this is where you will find us.

Other Things to Note•As we are on tank water, please be ‘water wise’ by not letting taps run.

Toilet paper only no wipes. Discard all other sanitary items in bins provided (extra toilet paper under bathroom sinks). •There is an unfenced dam on the property, so mind your children. •Be mindful when walking in the bush. It is vast out there, and you can easily lose your bearings. Stay on the trails. Before leaving, we would greatly appreciate it if you could leave the house as you found it and: •Turn off all lights, fans and heaters. •Load the dishwasher and switch it on. •Take out the rubbish and dispose in the bins at the bottom of the drive (yellow for recycling, red for rubbish). •Return keys to safe and scramble numbers.

The SpaceAt the hut you will experience the rhythm of the day: the big sky, rain on the tin roof, and the shifting reflections on the lake. This private waterfront property is yours to enjoy. We are committed to careful use of energy, and are solar powered. Summer is here! Open up the hut, embrace the landscape and the cooling breezes. The soft slouchy lounges take away all worries. Time to gaze out across the lake. The slab hut itself, with its contemporary kitchen, is for rent. Our rental price includes making up your king-size bed with sun-dryed cotton sheets and providing soft bathroom towels. There are two trundle beds [just] suitable for young children. The coastline and beaches are pretty much as natural as they were 50 years ago, and way back further. Being in a national park, there is restricted development. There are views for miles with no houses - or people - in sight. Incredible, given we are only 3.5 hours from Sydney itself. And an interesting side story - one that's part of Australia's contemporary history - the slabs are the same wood, from the same forest, as used for the Sydney Opera House. Our family was contracted [way back in 1960s] to supply all the wood. You will need a car. I recommend a trip to Seal Rocks and a walk up to the Seal Rocks light house itself so you can get a sense of the stunning coastline and raw beauty of the local landscape. The idea is to surrender ..... to having a holiday. Guest AccessThe whole hut is there for you to enjoy. In summer open up the doors and windows ... and feel the breeze. In winter sit by a warm wood-fire. Interaction with GuestsWe let you just take in your retreat - the privacy of the hut and its very unique waterfront location. Drop your bags and settle in to the gentle summer breezes, and in winter in front of the warm wood-fire. In summer and winter .. enjoy the hut's warm embrace. We also have a small library of design and architecture books. And, if wanting to explore the waterfront, we have a small row boat you can use, or can arrange for kayaks to be dropped off at the hut for a day or weekend, and picked up from the hut. Your Airbnb rental fee is going towards our creek restoration project on the waterfront land. The NeighborhoodThe access to many of Australia's most beautiful beaches - seven minutes drive to Seal Rocks and Light House beaches, a bit further on are Bluey's, Boomerang and Elizabeth beaches. The Myall Lake waterfront is literally your front door at the hut, and the water stretches to the horizon. You can jump into the hut's little boat and row into the lake or quietly walk the waterfront and take in its beauty. It is a unique setting, in any weather and season. As your host I will help you with whatever you need to make your stay special. Please note: while the hut is quiet in itself, there can be traffic noise [from The Lakes Way] at busy traffic times e.g. during school and public holidays and weekend peak traffic times. Getting AroundYou will need a car. I recommend a trip to Seal Rocks and a walk up to the Seal Rocks light house itself so you can get a sense of the stunning coastline and raw beauty of the local landscape. The idea is to surrender ..... to having a holiday. Other Things to NoteWe collect our own pure rain water, and are on solar power. In the garden we have fresh herbs, seasonal, so depends on the season. We are restoring the nearby creek back to native plants, and have just planted 50 paperbark, and wattle tree seedlings, propagated locally. Fingers crossed! This work is scheduled over the next five years. Your rental fee is going towards that long-term restoration project.

The SpaceNow booking for winter. Oceans of space for six with option to accommodate two more. Stylish, eco-friendly rural retreat with sumptuous pool 5 minutes from Blueys beach. With seven outstanding Mid-North coast beaches, three coastal lakes systems and National Parks on the doorstep, Valley of the Mists is ideally situated for a memorable summer holiday in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of New South Wales. This luxurious rural retreat is the perfect place to dissolve months of urban stress, set back 300 metres from the nearest road (ensuring no traffic noise) and amid 3.5 acres of landscaped gardens and with a 100-acre rainforest reserve as the backdrop. Wake to the songs of one of the 25 bird species that visit the valley, watch kangaroos and wallabies graze right in front of the house and ducks paddle in the dam and spend the day taking in the soothing views from the wraparound deck, open-plan living area or from the sumptuous 13-metre infinity pool. The Good Life Located in Charlotte Bay, five minutes inland from the coastal villages of Smiths Lake and Blueys Beach, Valley of the Mists is a light and airy country home with extensive covered outdoor entertainment areas, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms (including one ensuite), large living/dining/kitchen area, yoga studio and separate laundry. Powered by 27 rooftop solar panels and featuring on-site biolitix sewage system, rainwater tanks (mains water also available) and organic vegetable gardens, the house guarantees you an environmentally-friendly break. It's also a place to restore your balance by swimming laps, doing yoga or lazing with a book in the hammock. Breakfast on the deck looking down the valley, have lunch beside the pool and as the long summer afternoon fades into evening toast your holiday in the sun dappled western garden. Then cook up a storm on the new barbecue and watch the moon rise above Wallis Lake and the coast as you enjoy an alfresco dinner.

Five minutes drive to the north is family-friendly Elizabeth and clothes-optional Shelly in Booti Booti National Park as well as the famous surfing drawcards, Blueys and Boomerang beaches. Five minutes to the south is Cellitos, another renowned surf beach (email hidden) that opens into Smiths Lake which is a local favourite for four wheel driving. Further south again is Seal Rocks, recently used as a setting for the film "Adore" and with options for swimming, surfing, long beach walks and diving among one of the biggest aggregations of harmless grey nurse sharks on the coast. Pods of dolphin are a common sight off all of our beaches as are squadrons of pelican around our lakes. For those with a boat or kayaks, Smiths Lake is just around the corner as is the larger Wallis Lake system to the north, and both offer shallow translucent waters ideal for young children. Off the Seal Rocks access road there is also Neranie, on the shores of the beautiful Myall Lakes system, a great spot for a picnic on a summer evening. Stretching out to the south-west of the house are the towering gum forests of the Wallingat National Park and a twenty-minute drive will take you up to the Whoota Whoota Lookout, with far-reaching views over the coast, the long stretch of Seven Mile Beach to Forster and the islands of Wallis Lake. In Booti Booti National Park, beginning at the north end of Elizabeth Beach, is a lovely 7- kilometre bushwalk, running over the cliffs to Seven Mile Beach before cutting back along the Wallis Lake front. Cafes, restaurants and shops The cafes, newsagent, general store, bottle shop and eateries of Blueys Beach are also only five minutes drive away and there is the lakeside Pacific Palms Recreation Club for a sublime evening drink.

For more extensive shopping, Stockland in Forster is a twenty minute drive and the excellent Great Lakes cinema is about ten minute further on in Tuncurry. The next Byron Bay Pacific Palms has been touted by the Sydney Morning Herald as the next Byron Bay but remains relatively undiscovered. It is a special enough place to have attracted an internationally-published travel writer, who works for the Wall Street Journal, UK Daily Telegraph and the Traveller section of the SMH, Melbourne Age and Sun Herald, to live here. It's just three hours drive from Sydney but feels a million miles away and Tranquility is perfectly positioned and equipped to make the most of a holiday here. Getting AroundSpace for up to six vehicles to park outside. Coomba Road is a lovely cycle ride for experienced cyclists. A bus runs from the end of Coomba Road/junction with Lakes Way to Newcastle with train connections to Sydney. Taree airport is a one hour drive away and Newcastle airport one hour and twenty minutes.

The SpaceWelcome to 373- our country house, set in 9 very private acres with panoramic views of the Wootton valley. Located 2.5-3 hours from Sydney, 1.15 hours from Newcastle, 20-30 mins to Bungwahl and Seal Rocks, 45 mins to Forster. This has been our passion the last few years to build and create a sustainable house, incorporating existing elements of agricultural architecture and the clean lines of polished concrete floors, galvanised steel beams and rusted metal elements. How the house looks and feels has been a driving force and we have gathered furniture from far and wide, [19thC railway lamps, French chandeliers and ironwork, massive 17thC Austrian locks and so much more],…you would not believe what we have brought here to create an atmosphere of relaxed elegance and one that also reflects the practicalities of living in rural/coastal Australia. Our every effort has been made to use a light hand on resources, the house is100% solar powered, [with back up generator for emergency use] 100% rainwater, with over 90,000L stored, all roof areas catch water, enough for our pool too! Selective harvesting of trees provides ample fire wood for the 2 combustion wood heaters and outside braziers. Planting of native, bird attracting plants that are not water hungry, Led lighting, triple A rated appliances, passive air conditioning and the thermal quality of the polished concrete floors in the house along with the Pirelli flooring in certain areas adds thermal comfort in all seasons. Many items in the house have had a previous life, [as has part of the building], up cycling is a very addictive hobby… huge truck wheel + heavy slab of glass = coffee table! The house is clad in steel, a long lasting material and inherent in Australian agricultural building history, Australian hardwood [Blackbutt] is used in the huge decks and around the buildings which has now weathered to a lovely soft grey. There is carport parking for 5 cars. The 600sqm of the house is set out in 2 interconnecting buildings; the original building…is an open planned space with 2 reception areas, formal dining area, library and office with cathedral height ceilings and direct access to the large deck with pool, outside dining area,[ seats 20] ….and amazing views from the many floor length windows. A perfect place to relax, enjoy the setting sun, or listen to music and watch great films, [we are a bit film addicted, as you can see from our dvd library]! Or sit in front of the fire drinking wine and eating chocolate or whatever takes your fancy! Completely covered walkways and an outside courtyard [with another outside dining area] connect you to the rest of the house. There is a bistro style kitchen with polished steel surfaces and large gas range and plenty of work surfaces for those inspired to cook or assemble something delicious to eat….this house has seen so many dinner parties which is something we love to do, we have an eclectic mix of people in the area and not so many great places to eat without a drive, so we bring great produce home and dear friends bring their home grown produce enabling us to get creative in the kitchen or outside on the bbq…thankfully we have a local winery [Great Lakes Winery] for wine and special cheeses, their own angus beef and specialist ingredients and products. Our library stocks many really good cook books if you need inspiration. Sorry got carried away there…… The 2 master suites are in this connecting building which mirrors the original building except for size, it is bigger. Master bedroom suite with walk through dressing area and ensuite bathroom with free-standing designer bath, large shower, double sink and wc; the most important feature being the bath which is particularily good at sunset with a glass of wine, some aromatherapy oils and the view….you could even play some music on the B&O or Bose sound systems [f you would like a change from the bird and frogsong]! The second suite has an ensuite bathroom with shower ,wc and glass sink. Upstairs there are 2 further double bedrooms with a separate bathroom with oversized shower, sink and separate wc. A further shower room is concealed behind the library in the original building as well as a separate w.c.…so there is a bathroom for every bedroom giving you room to spread out. This side of the house also has an open plan dining area next to the kitchen with cathedral height ceilings and a reception area with slow combustion fire. There are various seating/relaxing areas to relax and have some space to yourself.. The complete wrap around veranda to the whole building provides cooling shade in the Summer and somewhere to watch the rolling mist and storms that follow the ridge on the other side of the valley at times…very atmospheric, I have often run out with my camera to try to capture the image. So if you would like to experience sustainable living at a high standard come and stay and experience this beautiful area. The house has been used for yoga retreats and would also be perfect accomodation for a wedding at the Great Lakes Winery. Well behaved pets may bring their owners! Some of our favorite places are: Shelleys beach [swimsuits optional]! the Green Catherderal, whoota whoota lookout, take picnic and camera Nabiac [national motorcycle museum, I am not a petrol head but this is really good]. Great vintage and retro shops. Dark Point, [ Aboriginal burial site amid enormous sand dunes, Bombah Point National park + Jimmys Beach] Great Lakes Winery, music events in the vineyard, wine tasting, artisan cheese plates and home grown angus beef. Robyns café Bulahdelah, retro café with good food and fun atmosphere. Pacific Palms Market and Nabiac Produce markets, great homemade goodies and some funky stuff too. The Salty Dog fish restaurant at Coolongerlookk I could go on and on ...but I won't...it is easier to see for yourself. Guest AccessThis is a rural setting near beaches, so you can do country walks, bike riding, horse riding nearby, and have access to some of the best surfing beaches on the NSW coast, Seal Rocks , Treachery etc Bush walks and rainforests,[Wingham], lovely country towns, and seaside towns like Forster/Tuncurry. The local winery has great events and of course good winetastings and cheese plates, they also produce their own Angus beef. Interaction with GuestsI am often not to hand as you are renting the whole house but I am always available by email and will give you local contacts for anything you might need. The NeighborhoodTHE PEACE a truely beautiful area still unspoilt and close to beaches and towns A really Australian experience of the best the countryside has to offer Getting AroundYou are on regional NSW a car is a must.
