“Nice Place to Stay”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Perfect location to get away from life for a while. With no phone reception, this was perfect for us and our dog was more then welcome.
The owner Geoffrey was welcoming and happy to have catch about the history of the house and location.
With only 10 mins to the main street of Nimbin, this is a great place to stay for a get away.
It was still to cold to go in the pool, but the fire place made the nights really nice.

Many thanks, Kelli, and I hope Coffee Camp is still perfect for you when we have our own mobile phone station across the creek and another on the other side at our telephone exchange both scheduled for coming online before this year is out. Both are to be connected to fibre for warp speed.

“Definitely coming back!”
Reviewed 15 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is a beautiful house nestled in a scenic and relaxing location, my partner and i stayed for a week and our expections were exceeded. the pool was always clean ready for use, the house was great in the heat- the 1930s art deco home kept cool during the day and kept the warmth in on the colder nights. The landlord Geoff was very welcoming and helpful, instantly making us feel at home. He is full of knowedge about the local area and wildlife and gave us a few tips that helped in our travels :) The privacy was great and the whole property had a very comforting vibe. From watching the cows and wallabies in the paddocks to watching the sunrise/sunsets from the balcony, this place is great especially for people just looking to wind down and chill.
Cheers for the great stay Geoff!

“Perfect place to stay in winter”

person found this review helpful

I enjoyed RainbowStay on 27th June this year. I would say that winter is the best time to visit the Nimbin region, as it does get very hot in summer. I just loved the antique furniture and the general feel of the place. If you appreciate 1920s-1930s Australian houses you'll love this one. It's just like visiting your grandmother's place. Situated in dairy country you feel like a farmer as you sit on the back veranda enjoying the amazing views. It was cool enough to light the fuel stove in the lounge room which makes for a very homely feel. The landlord Geoffrey is just gorgeous, so friendly and helpful. I took with me a civil engineering student from Nepal who boards with me and he absolutely loved it. It was wonderful to be able to show him some of the 'real' Australia and to experience country living.

“Procceed with extreme caution.”
Reviewed 26 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

From check in, where we had to quickly race to the property to collect keys after travelling for 9 hours and all we wanted was a coffee with our neice and her newborn, to check out at 4am because we couldn't wait any longer to get out of the place, the whole experience was a nightmare. No fridges turned on, 39 degrees outside, should I call them fridges? One was a small bar fridge and the other was the size of a large shoebox. No aircon, no flyscreen on windows so couldn't even open the windows, pool locked at 5 oclock, did I mention the temperature?? Non matching linen, no soap, building falling to pieces. I could go on but I will put it down to experience... a very bad one.

None of that is true as you well know, Simon.
You also truly know there were no problems until you were asked to pay for your extra guests and their damage which remains unpaid.

“Forever wanting to come back!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family and I have stayed at RainbowStay three times now, all times have been throughout winter. The house is beautiful, its an old house but that's what gives it character and beauty. The view from the balconies is absolutely stunning and we find ourselves spending majority of our days outside relaxing taking in the peaceful views. My favorite feature the house has to offer is the fire place, its one of the many things we look forward to most. If the fire is lit correctly and started at a reasonable time within two hours the whole house is heated, very well. The bed rooms also warm up and its lovely going to bed in a comfy warm room and bed. Plus with a complimentary box of fire wood from the owner Geoffrey you can't go wrong! The kitchen has everything you need including the handiness of a dishwasher! The furniture in the house is also old and beautiful its very antique and I'm sure there are many stories behind every piece in the house! Another great thing about this place is you can bring your pets! We are always happy to come here and its the first place we check for availability! The only minor downfall (for me blessing) is that you dont get the best mobile phone reception but with the kindness of the free WiFi Geoffrey supplies there's no worries! Geoffrey is a wonderful man, he lives next door and is never at all intrusive, he has a great knowledge of everything and is all about the best for his guest! We highly recommend staying here!
