PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

The Lake House is your ultimate Byron Bay bohemian hideaway for travelers who like something different. Located on a ten acre permaculture farm only a few kilometers from Byron. Completely relax & chill out in this simple, quirky rustic abode. Spend lazy days reading a good book listening to the great collection of records, or swim in the spring fed lake. At night watch the sky light up with stars! In winter enjoy the atmosphere of the wood fire and watch the mist across the lake. Eclectically furnished the cottage has a very artistic vibe.This home has a peaceful, natural, off grid feel with unlimited hot water and free Wi-Fi. At night watch the moon rise over the lake to a chorus of frogs! A haven to practice yoga or meditation, paint or turn on tune in and drop out!

There is a reverse osmosis water filter attached to the kitchen tap and also a similar filter attached to the shower head for chemical free bathing. Please note that there is no television at this property, however we do have a hard drive of movies TV shows and documentaries you are welcome to use. There is a great sound system, a record player and a bookshelf of art books. The lake is spring fed and lovely to swim in for the adventurous types but please do not wear sunblock or wear any chemicals into the lake as it feeds our permaculture farm.

There is nature all around and you will wake up to birds singing, wallaby's on the lawn and sun coming through the windows as the house is north facing getting sunshine from sunrise to sunset, not to mention clear moon rises and exceptional views of starry nights. The main house has a combined living room dining and kitchen as well as the main bedroom and bathroom. The second bedroom is a separate pavilion and does not have covered access. There is a piano in the second bedroom and it opens onto a nice deck.

Reviews

Joanne, November 2018

Best Airbnb I have ever stayed in! This house had everything I wanted, turn table, great vinyl selection, it’s own LAKE! Giant outdoor bath tub! Which I didn’t get to use (but gives me a perfect excuse to rebook) Close enough to all the good vibes in Byron but also tucked away nicely if you just want to escape the hustle and bustle.

Claire, September 2018

We loved our stay at the Lake House. The setting is amazing - so peaceful, beautiful garden, really relaxing. The house is as described, so rustic, but with everything you need and the beds are incredibly comfortable, super pills and great hot shower. The veranda is a perfect spot for morning yoga and the location is great. Less than a 10 minute drive into Byron, but away from all the hustle and bustle. A real place to get away.

Exactly as show in the pictures - tranquil and beautiful little home set in a perfect spot with great plants and a great feel. Close to Byron and super comfy beds - it’s the perfect spot to get away, play vinyls, sip red and sit by the fire. Bliss!

Our Take

I love making beautiful peaceful spaces that really bring similar qualities out in people. The beauty in this house is how much inside is outside -nature is doing most of the work!  At night there are so many stars its phenomenal how alive the sky is & if your lucky enough to be here when a full moon rises over the lake that is really special. I love that all the work we do to this farm is renewing the land and encouraging lots of native species to return & also call it home!
