About the property

Inspired by idyllic summer holidays, SummerSalt beach house offers a family-friendly accommodation option for when it’s time to get the whole family together and reconnect.

This newly renovated beach shack features retro styling and décor that remains true to the home’s original character and can sleep up to 11 people, plus the littlest family members from babies to toddlers.

There are three levels to explore, with all four bedrooms and main bathroom located on the upper-level, an integrated bathroom and laundry are on the ground level, while the main living spaces are on the middle level.

Designed with family living in mind, there is plenty of space for everyone and multiple living spaces to enjoy. You can nestle by the fire place in the living room on a cool night, enjoy a family dinner in the dining room, cook up a storm in the modern designer kitchen, enjoy a poolside barbecue under the huge covered alfresco area or relax on the covered deck and watch the kids swim in the saltwater pool.

SummerSalt is perfectly located just a short walk from the river foreshore, local shops and tourist attractions, so there is plenty on offer for the whole family.

- the home is situated in a quiet family street with great neighbours who we love and respect their quiet enjoyment.

Fantastic family holiday home in central Ballina. Fully equipped. Our daughter loved the kid's room, and we loved the retro vibe. Short driving distance from the shops, airport and beaches. Leonie was lovely, met us on arrival and was available to help during the holiday.

November 2014

We were really comfortable staying at Summer Salt, and it was a great place to stay for our three year old. Even braved the pool, although it's pretty chilly in August! Stylishly retro, with modern day comforts. Host was easy to communicate with, but left us quite private. Thank you!

Perfect for our two families

We loved staying here! Felt like home from the outset and had everything you could hope for. Great communication from the owners and helpful accessories like child safe gates for stairs. Couldn't have asked for more.

One detail

  • 3 of 5

The one detail I think I would want to know before booking this house is that where it DOES have beds for 11 (and the kids room is particularly cute), there is only one bathroom/toilet. There apparently are plans to add a second but this would be something I would want to consider if I were bringing extended family. Kitchen cooking items may also prove challenging cooking for a crowd but this could be overcome by using the BBQ area in the back yard. Take-away food outlets are also not too far away.

Owner's Response: Hi Janie Thank you for confirming we do have beds for 11 people :) The home is designed around the needs of families who are looking for an easy going casual getaway in a fully equipped home. You will be very pleased to know we have installed a second bathroom and toilet (as promised) on the lower level of the home. From all reports the families who have returned this year for there holiday love it ! Your concern regarding kitchen items has perplexed us a bit (as the guest before you had used the kitchen to cater for a function) so we thought it best to top up the kitchen with an extra 12 plates, bowls and cups. (there is enough for 30 people now) We do also provide free big gas BBQ in the undercover entertainment area which is a great spot to relax while watching the littles in the pool. We thank you and your husband for staying with us and hope you bring back your family next time to experience the home again. Your feedback is muchley appreciated Kind Regards Leonie and family xxxx

Happy extended family stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was extremely clean and well provisioned, as well as very comfortable for two families, with the promise of further improvements in 2016. The owners were helpful and the booking and stay went smoothly. We delighted in having the pool for the afternoons when we couldn't be bothered driving to the beach. The outdoor barbeque area/back yard is a good size and we also enjoyed using this space.
