All The Space You Need to Get Together – or Get Away!

With room for up to twelve people, the soaring ceilings, wooden beams, tiled floors and numerous windowed doorways serve to provide Indigal with a light and roomy, yet cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Three comfy lounge rooms deliver oodles of space and the house is surrounded by a sheltered verandah with private seating areas in which to while away the hours.

The generous outdoor entertaining area includes an 11 metre pool overlooking the garden and its expansive views. It also features a huge fireplace with barbecue facilities, a commercial kitchen, and a magnificent hand-crafted timber table which offers ample seating for everyone. A large TV screen for outdoor viewing rotates to encompass the pool.

Indigal oozes rustic charisma and the lure of relaxation with a heavy dose of contentment. Summer or winter—in whatever season—you, your friends and your family cannot help but be intoxicated by the ease of living within this haven of peace and tranquillity.

About Liz Galloway

This magnificent home was build by us over a 15 year period as a family home. With kids leaving home we decided to 'share' our home with family groups, giving them a space that was unique, private, warm and welcoming where they could get together - all under one roof!

It has proven to be a wonderful experience for us. We have created a special space where families have celebrated many special occasions or simply relaxed together.

Guests leave looking relaxed and refreshed and planning their next visit.

Here is what some of them have had to say:

"Indigal was the perfect house for an extended family of five adults, three children two babies and two Flat Coated Retrievers to spend a fabulous week together. The house design is great with plenty of spaces to get together and to get away for a while. Great location too. Private and surrounded by beautiful forest but close to fantastic beaches and tranquil lakes perfect for the little ones. Make sure you visit the fresh seafood shop just down the road." Bill

"We chose Indigal as we were wanting to find the perfect place for our family reunion, coming from both Sydney & Brisbane. It was also a special celebration for our parents/parents-in-law as it was their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

We are so pleased to have found Indigal and absolutely amazed at this spectacular property. It catered for all ages, we had so much room and there was always something new to see. The BBQ's and outdoor entertaining area we're very well used and loved very much. Everything you need is provided, including the coffee machine, which was a huge hit!

Thank you Liz and Brian for your hospitality and for providing such a beautiful accommodation for our big family. We all would very much love to visit again." Christina

Why Liz Galloway chose Charlotte Bay

Indigal Hacienda Grande is located on 25 private acres on the northern slope of Magic Mountain. The Hacienda nestled in a 5 acres gardens, orchard and space and surrounded by beautiful rainforests.

We are only a 5 minute drive to the iconic Blueys, Boomerang and Elizabeth Beaches along with Wallis and Smiths Lake.

The villages of Blueys Beach and Smiths Lake are close by and provide cafes, gift shops and convenience stores for your holiday needs.

What makes this house unique

One of the most common comment from guests is that the house is so well designed for large family groups.

"All The Space You Need to Get Together – or Get Away!"

Large spaces for getting together for meals and relaxing but then lots of hidden spots for some quiet time.

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.
