Holiday Rental House
Welcome to our beautiful 3 bedrooms house + studio/cinema + 10 acres of gardens, rainforest, wildlife and food! There are around 24 mature fruit trees (oranges, mandarins, mulberries, blueberries, tamarillos, jackfruit, feijoa, etc, etc) along the driveaway and another 50 young fruit trees in our food forest. The whole property is run according to Permaculture principles, we don't use any chemicals and we try to follow nature's example when it comes to planting trees, veggies and the keeping of animals. The house itself is very special. Built with beautiful timber floors throughout, windows on every wall, full modern kitchen with gas stove, pot belly fireplace, claw foot bathtub, 100m2 of deck, 3 generous bedrooms and the creek so close you can hear it sing as you fall asleep!

There are around 24 mature fruit trees (oranges, mandarins, mulberries, blueberries, tamarillos, jackfruit, feijoa, etc, etc) along the driveaway and another 50 young fruit trees in our food forest. The whole property is run according to Permaculture principles, we don't use any chemicals and we try to follow nature's example when it comes to planting trees, veggies and the keeping of animals. The house itself is very special. Built with beautiful timber floors throughout, windows on every wall, full modern kitchen with gas stove, pot belly fireplace, claw foot bathtub, 100m2 of deck, 3 generous bedrooms and the creek so close you can hear it sing as you fall asleep! There is lots to do on the property: - Explore the acres of regenerated rainforest - Visit the floating tree house - Walk to the Meeting of the Gods stone circle. - Head to the private 3 rivers swimming hole (5 minutes walk) and see if you can spot Platypuses and turtles - Sit and watch the chickens do their thing - Pick fruit to eat off the many fruit trees on the property - Read a book in the hammock on the deck - Enjoy a board game or a game of vintage pinball - Play a game of pool out on the open deck - Go swimming at your private waterfall - Fish in the dam - Walk along the food forest - Pick things to eat from the veggie garden - Try your luck at archery - Go exploring along one of the rivers - Grab some food from the veggie garden - Sit out in the hammock and read a book from the library Enter the beautiful home with the huge cathedral ceilings and french sliding doors that open to your own private decking. Sit back on the deck and enjoy the sounds of the running creek whilst admiring the abundance of wildlife all around you. This property is very special. Not only does it have two creeks on the property and a beautiful 2 storey sun-drenched house, but for the past 30 years it has been transformed into a native rainforest with 'bush foods' and exotic plants scattered throughout. There is one bedroom upstairs and two downstairs. The house has a pot-belly fireplace in the lounge room which will keep you warm and comfortable on cold winter nights. Pick food from the veggie garden (or one of the many local farmers markets) and get inspired in the fully functional kitchen. The lounge room features a 3-seater couch and a 2-seater couch, both of which are extremely comfortable. There is also an original 1979 Playboy Pinball Machine which you are welcome to use as well as a pool table out on the deck. The kitchen is fitted with an extra large gas stove, dishwasher and full size fridge for your convenience. We have all the kitchen essentials you will need and you can find plenty of herbs in the garden. The shower is extra large and features a rainfall shower head and an above ground bath that overlooks nature. The shower runs on solar hot water with back-up mains power for those overcast days. The toilet is a composting toilet. Super easy to use and hygienic. Please also note that the furniture in the house may be different than pictured. All photos taken on the property. Guest access Guests have access to the entire property. The neighbourhood 30 minutes from Byron Bay, 25 minutes from Mullumbimby, 20 minutes from Lismore. Paradise backs onto the Whian Whian National Park. The famous Minyon Falls are just 9km away. Want somewhere nice to go for dinner? We can recommend places in Bangalow to dine. Lismore is the best place to go for general supplies. There is a farmers market on Saturdays and Tuesdays in Lismore and one on Fridays in Mullumbimby Other things to note There are chickens living on the property. Help yourself to eggs. Gumboots are essential in the chicken coup and are recommended around the property.More
