Overview

About the property

HUGE NEW COVERED DECK with two Day beds and large dining table all overlooking the paddocks at the rear of the property.... Several recent guests have commented that they spent " most of the holiday outdoors on the deck" .

In May 2016 three Koalas were spotted on one afternoon and many other days one koala has been seen nestling in the branches of the trees next to the back lane.

June 2016 extensive new stonework stairs,paving and landscaping is now complete and Includes a beautiful stone BBQ of the wood burning type overlooking the paddocks.

This truly relaxing house, situated only a 10-minute walk from the main street of the village of Bangalow, is a home away from it all. From each window of this comfortable house is a staggering view of tall trees and other green, sub-tropical foliage. Feel wonderfully uplifted by its closeness to nature.

There are 2 double bedrooms with queen beds and 1 bedroom with a single bed. All are clean and modern and the two larger bedrooms look out onto fields where cows can sometimes be heard lowing. The central living room with its wraparound sofa, reverse-cycle air-conditioner and wall-mounted TV set is also of a contemporary nature. The glass-topped dining-room table in the living room comfortably seats six.

There is a modern, caesar-stone and stainless-steel kitchen with every facility you might wish for. These include a Miele dishwasher, Bosch cooktop and a wall oven, fridge and microwave. We also offer a double-sink facility.

From the living room and kitchen, you walk onto a huge covered verandah with outdoor settings and two day-beds, a perfect place to relax, enjoy a couple of glasses of wine and/or a meal surrounded by the natural world, listening to the sounds of birdsong.

As well as the modern bathroom, which has a separate shower, toilet, washbasin and deep, luxurious tub, there is an extra toilet and washbasin, also modern, attached to the main bedroom, which offers privacy and comfort.

In the backyard, you will have access to a streamlined laundry with a washing machine and basin. There is a washing line located near the laundry in the green, tree-filled backyard.

This property is situated 10 minutes’ walk to the heritage-listed main street in Bangalow with its upmarket restaurants and shops. It is 1 km to the west of Bangalow, blissfully away from highway noise and the new expressway building works.

The drive to popular Byron Bay takes 15 minutes.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Ourfamily of 4 had a great tume at Leahs Place! We had heaps of fun exploring Bangalow by foot and enjoyed being able to walk home in the evenings after dinner in town. Duvets all great quality and toasty warm on the cold June evenings, we had a fab time and would book again, and would suggest either organising some Nanna rugs for watching TV or install a open fire!!! The outlook onto farm land was really magical and we also enjoyed exploring the national parks like Minyon Falls!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

A lovely comfortable home in a quiet and peaceful location. The house is modern and well appointed. The large daybed on the rear deck was our favourite place to sit and enjoy the lush surrounds and catch a few koala sightings. We enjoyed our 5 nights and would stay again.

Great property with a great veranda!

  • 5 of 5

Great property for a peaceful break. We sat out on the veranda and watched the sun set over hills sipping our chilled white wine. How can you beat that! We even spotted the koala high in the trees at the rear of the property - fantastic!

Met every expectation

  • 5 of 5

Just a short review. 5 stars for comfort and presentation. Nothing lacking in facilities. Lovely back veranda with views over rolling meadows but at the same time very handy for Bangalow village - maybe 10 - 15 minutes walk.

So peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved our recent stay at Leah's retreat. The house is well kitted out, the beds are comfortable, and the back deck was irresistible! Together with the charms of the Bangalow village, we'll be back for sure.
