Property type house

About the property

Indigal has 6 bedrooms and can accommodated up to 15 guests in bedrooms and an additional 8 on trundle/bunk/sofa beds.

“I wanted to book something special for my parents 50th wedding anniversary and this home delivered on every level. From the beautiful manicured lawns to the spacious living areas of the house our party of 15 loved every inch of the property. The amazing outdoor entertaining area that over looked the pool, the pool table, sound system inside and out and the massage chair where all a huge hit with the family. Every day you seem to find something new about the property because of the open layout and very quirky decor. The owners are just beautiful to deal with and no one wanted to leave. I really could go on and on about how wonderful this property is but you need to experience it yourself. We will definitely be going back! Darren.”

Indigal Hacienda Grande is no ordinary house. It's more a mix of a movie set, rural resort, museum, hacienda and art gallery. Perched on the north-east slopes of Magic Mountain, Indigal is surrounded by lush gardens and rain forest; 24 acres of privacy and seclusion and only a few minutes’ drive from the iconic Blueys, Elizabeth and Boomerang Beaches and a 15 minute drive to Seal Rocks to the south and Forster to the north.

Indigal’s spacious main living area looks out over the expansive lawn to views of Wallis Lake and Forster/Tuncurry to the north and the ocean to the east. This lounge is 1 of 3 that provides plenty of room for families to spread out, relax and enjoy being together. The verandahs, wrapping around the hacienda provide numerous, private seating areas where guests can get away for a quiet cuppa or siesta. Surrounding the pool, sun lounges, swing seat and cabana provide areas to relax after a swim or watch kids at play.

Indigal can provide accommodation for up to 23 guests. 5 bedrooms, a Gypsy Wagon, loft and sofa beds provide a mix of bedding for adults and kids. Bedrooms are spacious. Cool in summer and warm in winter. All linen is provided, including bath towels, and pool towels are supplies in summer. A house plan diagram is included in our photo gallery.

Indigal is a gourmet's delight. The 2 fully equipped indoor kitchens and the outdoor BBQ/kitchen, make holiday cooking a dream. Plenty of cooking equipment, utensils and crockery is supplied so catering for a large group is easy.

Take a walk along the private walking track that circuits the rain forest or venture into the rain forest gully itself and discover the variety of wildlife and giant trees that abound there.

With this plethora of activities on offer, both at the house or a stone's throw away, makes Indigal the ideal holiday location for families and large groups.

Indigal is approximately about a 3.5 hour drive from Sydney.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The stay was perfect for our large family of adults and kids, everything we needed was right there and we only left the house to go to the beach. So big that we were all very comfortable and stress free. Not one complaint and can't wait to go again.

Perfect Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot to getaway from everything. We booked Indigal for my 50th birthday celebrations last weekend. We had up to 19 people staying at the house on the Saturday night and there was plenty of room. We had rain on & off for most of Saturday and it didn't bother us in the least. The house is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. A perfect undercover pergola area complete with BBQ's & Industrial Fridge that kept all of the wine nice & cold. Lots of quirky things to explore in and around the house and great views from the upstairs to the Lake and the Ocean. The owners dogs even came over for a visit. A fantastic place to stay with a small group or a large group of adults like we had. Thankyou Liz for a wonderful weekend.

excellent venue

  • 5 of 5

For the second time we have enjoyed a weekend with our friends at Indigal. What a wonderful destination for a relaxing time with a great bunch of people, and we will certainly return next year so we can 'detox' from the rest of the world.
