BlueGreen House - a luxurious, self contained 2 bedroom/bathroom house w pool
About Simon Kilpin
The picture is of myself and wife Dolores with a very dear friend of ours called Holly in the middle. We love socialising with friends and the casual lifestyle that Byron has to offer is perfect for us. So it goes without saying that running the BlueGreen House where we meet so many wonderful people is a dream for us. Welcoming every guest to our house and giving them a quick 5 minute introduction and telling them about the area, great restaurants and things to do is something I look forward to every stay we have.
Simon Kilpin purchased this House in 2003
Why Simon Kilpin chose Coopers Shoot
We fell in love with the property the minute we set eyes on it. It was originally a flower farm that needed some TLC and we saw an opportunity to build the BlueGreen House. Its in the Byron Hinterland about 10 mins drive from Byron town centre which is perfect because it is close enough to Byron to enjoy all the amazing energy that Byron has to offer or go to the beaches but far enough out to retreat back to the quietness and solitude of our beautiful 5 acres and take a deep breath of county air and relax. The Studio followed and now the BlueGreen Villa. The property itself has evolved to become the BlueGreen Sanctuary, with a lake and Gazebo as its centerpiece. Enjoy :)

I had a blissful 4 nights staying at this stunning property.
The house was amazing
, as too the furniture & decor, with lots of thoughtful extra accessories for families with children.
I took my best friend & my cat for a girls hinterland getaway...being pet friendly accommodation I was able to bring my little senior cat who’s in palliative care, & I now have more beautiful memories of her on this trip- watching her curled up in front of the fire at night, meeting the local animals on the property including 2 very friendly dogs, a gorgeous duck & some alpacas.
World class dining, beaches & other activities are just a short drive away, but we spent most of our time relaxing at the house enjoying the tranquility, the lush green surrounds & the sounds or bird life.
If your staying in the winter months, the house is flooded with sunlight during the day & quite warm, at night it gets chilly so if your skills keeping a fire lit aren’t great, take warm clothes. The upstairs bedroom has an electric blanket which was brilliant for Queenslanders like me who feel the cold! The upstairs jacuzzi was also a favourite & magically stays warm for hours!
Simon the host was wonderful & meets you on arrival to show you around, & I recommend having a quick read of the helpful information booklet, there’s lots of extra tips in there (like where to find kindling for the fire place).
Thoroughly recommend BlueGreen sanctuary if your looking for a peaceful luxury getaway, with amazing rolling green pastures nestled right next to beautiful beaches...in a stunning rustic yet modern house.
Wonderful relaxed atmosphere in beautiful surrounds away from the hustle and bustle of Byron
We have never stayed in the hinterland at Byron previously but absolutely loved Blue Green...so peaceful and surprisingly close to cafes and beaches. We would recommend it to couples and families alike. Simon was a wonderful host
Perfect house for couples.
Had a wonderful time at the house, it has everything you need. Great for couples.
Beautiful outlook, great kitchen and pool. The whole house is fantastic and private. Only 10-15min drive into Byron and 8min drive into Bangalow.
Simon was a fantastic host and communication was easy and reliable.
Will definitely be back, thanks again!
The perfect getaway
Our stay at the BlueGreen House was fantastic. From our first contact with Simon we felt like we had known him for years. The property was presented in an immaculate state, with mood music playing and the sliding doors open letting us take in the vista of manicured lawns, sparkling pool, rolling hills and a lovely lake and gazebo.
We were there for our second anniversary and the house exceeded our expectations.
Booked for next year straight away
I have stayed in lots of lovely places but the blue green house was quite special. Lovely design, great vibe, awesome kitchen and perfect hosts. The location is exactly where you want to be, near the Harvest in Newrybar and the honesty boxes for local farm produce, an outlook that doesn't matter if it rains or shines and a short drive to beautiful beaches and towns. We booked for next year straight away.
The BlueGreen House was the most relaxing and enjoyable stay my partner and I have had for a long time. From the beautiful gardens, to just relaxing around the pool. The BlueGreen House definitely lived up to our expectations! Highly recommend to everyone - couples or families.
