My family had a lovely stay at this glorious abode. It was so easy to relax snug in the hinterland hills. We explored the surrounding beaches and villages and were in awe of the beauty. A perfect holiday leaving us rejuvenated!

Thanks for Sharing it Lissa. :)

Perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time during our stay at the Artists Retreat Wildlife Sanctuary. The house is incredible and the scenery is even better!! We seriously didn’t want to leave. There is an outdoor day bed overlooking the pool and we pretty much didn’t leave this spot the whole time - perfect spot to read a book. Our dog had amazing time too. Boots (aka Romeo), the kelpie from across the road, came for a few visits during our stay and our dog was very happy to have another dog to play with.

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.
