Beautiful eco friendly home within a sub tropical rainforest setting in the hinterland of Byron Bay. 20 meter infinity lined lap pool over looking a crystal clear creek surrounded by granite rocks and tall trees. A unique, peaceful, relaxing natural setting.
The Romantic Forest Hideaway is located in the Hinterland of Byron Bay, in a village called Goonengerry, just a 35 minute scenic drive from Byron Bay town and beaches.
The Hideaway is situated on a 75 acre multiple occupancy sub tropical rain forest property, with only 5 dwellings, all on their own parcel of land located completely private from one another.
By car you are 20 minutes to Mullumbimby, 20 minutes to Bangalow, 30 minutes to Lismore, 50 minutes to Gold Coast Airport and 50 minutes to Ballina Airport.
This is the perfect place for those wanting privacy and to be immersed in nature. This home is owned by a Yoga Teacher, who recommends it for those needing a place suitable for meditation, yoga, writing, painting, or just a beautiful place to enjoy nature, rejuvenate and relax.
The house is fully equipped with a flat screen TV, large, comfy lounge and a fully equipped kitchen. There is large timber deck overlooking the 20 meter infinity lined lap pool with a large timber table for dining and a day bed for lazing.
For the winter months there is a wood fire heater and a gas heater.
The spacious bedroom is housed in a separate dwelling, from the main house, and has its own verandah with stunning views over looking the sub tropical rain forest, the 20 meter lap pool and the creek below. The bed is king sized with a comfy futon mattress on a timber base.
Just beyond the pool is a Balinese Bale providing the perfect place to sit and meditate or just be in silence with only the sounds of nature. A little further away you can stroll down to the babbling creek which is surrounded by large granite rocks.
This unique retreat is Eco friendly. It is run on solar power, plus mains power. It has a composting toilet (normal toilet seat) and a open air shower with a sunken bath tub (outside) so you can view the forest while bathing in the day or the stars while bathing at night. The outdoor bathroom is a unique feature of this property.
This venue provides privacy as it is the last house on this multiple occupancy property, therefore, there is no passing traffic or visitors.
To keep this property looking amazing we do have a regular grounds maintenance person that comes each Tuesday for around 3 hrs in total (9am - 12 noon) this includes time spent at a smaller cabin up the road and each Tuesday fortnight we have a gardener maintaining the gardens from approximately 9am - 4pm (this includes time spent around the grounds of a cabin not far away).
There is wifi satellite internet and a land line (no mobile reception).
INTERNET: The internet usage is only suitable for checking and sending emails and messages, internet browsing and messages via messenger. It is NOT suitable for downloading movies, watching movies or Youtube movies. The reason is that the internet is satellite and has limited GB per month and if this is not adhered to the next guest will not have any internet to use. We thank you for your understanding and appreciate your honesty with the internet use.
To support the nourishing environment that this retreat place provides, there are also massage and facials available on site by appointment for guests. See the information sheet provided inside the house with phone numbers and options.
There is a 20 meter lap pool, for those that like to swim or just cool off in the summer months.
You are a 10 minute drive to Minyon falls and the Whian Whian National Park and a short scenic drive to all the surrounding towns, interesting villages and amazing beaches.
We offer this beautiful and unique home for couples, however, there is a day bed in the main living area. If you have an extra adult guest, please discuss with me as I will need to arrange the cleaner to have the day bed made up (or leave the linen) and there is an extra tariff for any extra guests per night to cover utilities.
This listing with pool is not suitable for toddlers or young children.
Guests are reminded that this property is in the middle of the rainforest. In the forest there is an abundance and diverse range of native fauna (frogs, wallabies, spiders, lizards, goannas and other native fauna). Please tread carefully when you are walking around outside and at night please always take a torch with you.
