Great place to stay, close to Byron and Ballina

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this lovely house with another family. The house was beautiful and clean and the owners were super helpful with everything. There was plenty of room for each family to have their own space, with one living area upstairs and one downstairs. The kitchen had everything we needed and the laundry has a big washer and dryer. We took the quick walk to the beach every day via the safe little underpass and used the adjacent reserve to fly our kites. We also took day trips to Yamba and Byron Bay, it's such a lovely area! Highly recommended.

Beautiful house

The house was well appointed and a lovely place to stay. The location was quiet and very handy to the beaches, great fishing spots and close to Blues and Roots Festival. We really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful property and stay for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this property for a week in Jan 2015. The location is perfect for a quiet family getaway and Clarkes Beach is literally 3 minutes walk from the house! Location is also 10 minute drive from the major supermarkets which was a big bonus.House is well equipped with a body board, beach hats and kayaks so it made the beach holiday experience even better than we anticipated. The house also was a beautiful place to stay in, we didn't want to leave most days as we could sit on the balcony and enjoy the breeze from the beach. Thank you for letting my family stay, if we come back to Ballina, we would definitely stay here again!
