This sunlight filled retro and rustic studio is surrounded by nature and is set on 6 acres of lush greenery. It is the perfect central base to explore the Northern Rivers area, as it’s located halfway between the idyllic Byron Bay and the trendy Gold Coast.

​Fully furnished and self-contained, the studio boasts eco-friendly features such as its zinc and recycled timber building structure; collection and usage of rainwater; and greywater distribution. In addition to having a kitchenette, fridge (please note that the freezer is not in working order), reverse cycle air conditioning, ceiling fans, spacious deck, and free WIFI, the studio also has an outdoor garden area with a BBQ, retro table, and chairs plus umbrella, retro banana lounges, and hammock to enjoy the private outlook and peaceful views. Beach necessities such as beach umbrella, chairs, and towels are provided.


You can enjoy the coastal breeze as you sit on the deck with your evening tipple and watch the sun go down after a day of activities, or you can try to spot the wide variety of birdlife (ducks, swamp hens, kookaburras, cranes, etc.) that call the property home.  Our lovely Haucaya breed alpacas, Billy and Emmy, will also make you feel relaxed and totally at ease.


With the beach, cafés, restaurants, and shops being less than 10 mins away by car, and activities such as kayaking, surfing, whale watching, nature walks, and country drives abounding in the area, the studio offers you the perfect excuse to get away from it all.  


For you:

A “Welcome Hamper” is provided for your enjoyment.

For your pooch:

Homemade welcome treats on arrival provided by Kirsten and Diva, plus bedding (both trampoline style, and plush), food bowls, towels, and toy chest. Doggie wash station plus shampoo provided.


Due to COVID-19, we are no longer doing our usual meet-and-greet with guests; however, we are still available via SMS or phone to chat about anything you wish to know about the studio, or neighbourhood. We can also suggest activities to do around the area. The owner lives on the property but is well away from the studio.



The area has a lot of offer, including two breweries – Earth Beer Company at Cudgen, and Stone & Wood Brewery at Byron Bay; plus a great selection of Australian spirits at Husk Distilleries in North Tumbulgum; cheeky cabaret show at the Brunswick Picture House; and to cap it off, a lunch and wine feast at PiPiT, one of Pottsville’s newest eatery -- there is something to tickle everyone’s fancy.  We are also just 10 min from the Tweed section of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail, 15 min from the BluesFest site, 25 min from Byron Bay, 25 min from Gold Coast Airport, 35 min from Wollumbin/Mt. Warning, and 90 min from Brisbane with easy access off the Pacific Highway (M1).

Minimum of 3 nights applies.
