My wife and I stayed for the week and just wanted a place to relax and chill and this was it. Serena and Kim were fantastic hosts and provided the best breakfasts, all options were great. Close to Warner Bay, restaurants and cafes.

Excellent place. We absolutely loved the rooms and the pool and the whole atmosphere. The owners were really cheerful and helpful and the cooked breakfast was to die for! Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

I have never had to write a bad review about accommodation before and do not like to do it but at almost $200 a night, one should expect a clean bed. Before getting into bed we pulled back the covers to find the bed had human and dog hair all over it, including a huge clump of long hair (we...

How very sad that I need to offer a public reply to this ongoing battle. Jessica - you arrived out of reception hours - and we always leave instruction for guests to find their accommodation and that instruction clearly states that we are available after hours via sms or mobile call. You had enquired several months prior for accommodation but...

This was a first B & B experience for my husband so he was a little unsure but he really enjoyed the privacy of the layout and the off street parking. Huge room, very clean and well appointed. Great breakfasts by the pool. Sadly we only had two nights to enjoy the serenity as we were busy with family at...

I visited here recently on a trip through to Ballina from Melbourne. The room was beautiful - large, clean and nicely decorated. The gardens are lovely and I was sorry I had no time for a dip in the pool. It looked so inviting and is lit at night. The Balinese theme of the rooms and the gardens added to...

Clean and tidy, nice pool area. Great breakfasts and private transport to the shops by the owner! If you need a room for the night that is reasonably priced then this is a good option.Off street parking included.

We had a wonderful peaceful and relaxing time here - there are only 3 rooms and we were on our own for one night of our two. The pool area was great - we were lucky to have perfect weather so were able to enjoy this undisturbed. Lovely! Breakfast is delicious ( pancakes and bruschetta to be recommended) and the...

Unfortunately you stayed with us at a time that we had chosen to go away ourselves. We put a manager in place and unfortunately that was a mistake and from all accounts - the three weeks she/they were here - was bedlam. We had gone through a great deal of training with her prior to us leaving - and I...
