Great holiday with the fur kids

5 of 5
Basic unit, but with a wonderfully relaxing setting. Loved waking up to the animals just outside the patio and the birds in the trees. The best part was how cat friendly the unit was - lots of cat furniture for my two kitties to explore. They even made friends with one of the resident cats who joined us one night. Thank you!

The perfect beach house

5 of 5
Our family of five adults had a perfect beach holiday here. We loved all the different spots to sit and relax, especially the hammock. Everything needed had been thought of...a barbecue, bikes and helmets, a table tennis table, balls and frisbee, outdoor seating, etc etc. Think "iconic Aussie beach holiday" and you'll know what it is like. Just a few steps from the beach, the bike/ walking track, a hatted cafe and a walk from all Ballina's many delights. Stayed Jan 2018 ( 2018 not available in review options)
