We have stayed at Anita’s Chalet twice now and it certainly will not be our last. The time and effort that is put in to this tranquil Japanese styled chalet is just incredible. The chalet itself is clean and private equipped with everything you could imagine from karaoke, dvds, beautiful books to a rice cooker and Japanese loose leaf green...

48 hours in Dum Dum was absolute bliss. Chalet Hotaru is highly recommended - comfy bed, amazing bath, lovely hosts, generous provisions, a menagerie of farm animals and fireflies visible literally from the doorstep. Bring your camera and not much else ! Close to beautiful bushwalking tracks, Uki and pretty Cram's Farm reserve. Put it on your to-do list!

About the neighbourhood
'Dum Dum'/Uki is located in one of the most picturesque parts of the Tweed Valley in the Northern Rivers, NSW. The Tweed River, just minutes away, offers people the opportunity for a variety of recreation, including swimming, boating, canoeing and fishing. Just 10 minutes from the chalet, one can visit the outstandingly beautiful Tweed Regional Art Gallery and the famed
Margaret Olley Art Centre. Nature lovers will be inspired by the awesome majesty of Wollumbin/Mt Warning, stunning from any angle. About 20 minutes drive away is Cram's Farm Recreation Area in Doon Doon, which is a part of the Clarrie Hall Dam, a truly 'hidden treasure' of the Tweed Valley with incredibly beautiful scenery and more opportunities for recreation.
