Beautiful, relaxing holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the artists retreat with our two young children. What a fantastic house! The bedrooms are huge and have lovely linen and nice touches. The kitchen is fully decked out with what you need and even had a baby high chair, which was very useful!

It was so close to Bangalow which had great little shops and lovely restaurants and cafes.

I couldn't recommend this place highly enough, it would be great for a couple's getaway or a family getaway.

Beautiful, peaceful paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the most amazing long weekend at Lissa's gorgeous artist's retreat in Coorabell, cannot wait to return for another dose of bliss as soon as the calendar permits! Stunning outlook over the hinterland - beautifully established garden ensures that you will have 'knock your socks off' views from every angle. The house itself was perfect as we went with another couple and having the bedrooms at either end of the house meant we could still have our privacy and meet in the middle for meals and boardgames! You have everything you could want for the perfect get away, the fireplace in the living room made it all feel warm and cosy on the cool nights, the stunning pool provided one of our fearless friends with a great swim on a couple of the days we were there - I think I'll wait for the weather to warm up first. We had such a fabulous time!!!

Beautiful Property with Peaceful Views

  • 5 of 5

My parents and my husband and I stayed here over winter and absolutely loved it. The two bedrooms are really spaced out so you don't hear the other couple and have complete privacy. The pool and views are beautiful, even had a quick dip which was very refreshing. The area is gorgeous and peaceful, all country side with cows and fields. Nice to go for a morning walk. This place screams glass of red wine by the fire, you didn't want to leave. We had a relaxing 3 days and definitely could of done with another day or 2. Thanks Lissa, such a gorgeous place, highly recommend.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Artist Retreat, relaxing by the pool and fireplace and having fun with our kids and pooch. Gardens were beautiful. It was also a great location for venturing to Byron, Brunswick and Bangalow.

Beautiful dog friendly sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home in a peaceful location with nature surrounding. Privacy was wonderful and the house lacked for nothing with regard to all those little unexpected conveniences a house needs to have- a comfortable place to unwind and relax. Convenient to all local townships but no need to go anywhere. It's nice to find a place that will accomodate dogs but still provide a quality experience for the humans as well! We truly enjoyed our stay.
