Big timber slab and mud brick handcrafted house on 18 pretty acres with an organic macadamia nut orchard , within 600m from a quiet , gorgeous beach... The house was handcrafted with timber milled from the property, and recycled old bridge timbers, with Japanese joinery being a focus. The outdoor bathhouse, connected by a bridge offers bathing with the privacy and loveliness of nature and air...with plenty of solar heated water to enjoy .... But there is an indoor bathroom with a bath for the chilly evenings too... With 3 bedrooms, having 2 queen beds and 3 single beds... The house sleeps 7 people. It is simple and natural and light ... And. Peaceful . The airiness of the expansive verandas and the light the glass allows, makes this house a true experience of the surrounds outside.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

The house is well positioned for the beach and in natural grounds. We found the overall presentation of the property to be fair and suitable for a weekend away but lacked effective heating for a winter stay.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hungry Head House. The house is well equipped, has a tranquil feel and a lovely outlook. We loved the outdoor shower and bath. The beaches close by are great for all and the town of Urunga had everything we needed. An idyllic spot now bypassed by the highway. Very relaxing spot, perfect for a quiet getaway.

Beautiful, peaceful and unique

  • 5 of 5

We had the family here for an early Christmas and it was perfect. Despite arriving in a crazy storm, the house and host were perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Outdoor bathroom a hit and watching the kangaroos from the huge deck such a delight. Harriet was really responsive and helpful and checked in to ensure we were ok several times (we lost power in the storm for a few hours). We will be back; such a beautiful area; deserted beaches, wildlife and Urunga is one of my favourit unspoiled little coastal gems.

Peaceful relaxing get away for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the property was beautiful inside and out. Great for kids and adults , the outside bath and shower was the favourite place for us all . Hungry Head beach is 3 minutes drive with flags and lagoon for the kids to swim. Dining on the deck watching the kookaburras, watching kangaroos through the macadamias or looking at the stars seen so clearly , we will really miss this place and can't wait to go back.

Wonderful, relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed in this gorgeous house for 3 nights. It is a very comfortable house to live in-- well equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. The outdoor shower was a real treat. we also enjoyed being entertained by kookaburras, parrots and kangaroos throughout the day. The beach is a bit of a walk but is well worth it.

Overall, this is one of the nicest places I have ever visited and would recommend it highly for a back to nature experience.
