The short 5 minute walk, to what felt like our own private beach has everything you could wish for Beautiful area and would definitely stay again if in the area again! It is the exact mid point between the two cities currently 5 hours driving either way and is the ideal place to spend a night or two boasting great cafes, a tavern and wonderful surf and beaches. Fans and heaters are available. The quest house is an octagonal yurt. Wake up to a lovely ocean view and go to sleep with the sound of the ocean.

With the help of my Ya Ya friends Beta-reading and my friends that were school teachers doing the edits, Fire in the Wind was released on the 15th August She is such a lovely person and invite us to see how she lives. To my surprise not only did I enjoy it, it was very relaxing and therapeutic. A short walk to the beaches or into the village of Nambucca for coffee at one of the cafes. Communication was easy, arrived late but no problem, we were welcomed personally by Kenny who showed us around and was vey friendly.

It was a lovely and relaxing place to stay and our kids loved their encounters with the animals on the property – feeding horses and chickens and throwing balls for Ellie the lively boxer pup.

The Deck is suited for couples, families or a group of friends. We do accept guests travelling with one small dog but please discuss this before booking as we have two dogs on the property.

Close to the beach and bowling club. We the hosts do not use this toilet, its for AirBnb guests only. Cliff was a great host and very friendly. Her place is a good location for people traveling mackscille the main highway as it was easy to get to.

While on the property we were able to meet the chickens that live there, and feed the friendly Kookaburra who hangs around close by.

I loved that stay. Great location, equipped with everything we needed. Laundry basin available for washing up your dishes.

She’s got such beauty around in the form of spreading orchards, kangaroos and wallabies early early morning. From there you can walk down the hill to the gorgeous Nambucca River and another mins walk to Nambucca’s stunning Shelley Beach, where you can take a long stroll, play in the rock pools and enjoy the sea air!

Just 7 minutes drive to the spectacular Valla beaches. Cosy stay and something to remember. There are many beautiful sights to take in. No highway traffic noise: The Tavern is closed for dinner on Sunday and Monday nights. Or there is plenty of space to set up your own tent, or two. Seascape – The Deck. Complete access to kitchen.

I write this review from our next airbnb up the coast and I must admit that seascape has once again set the standards unbearably high!!
