Great place to stay for the NSW North Coast. So quiet at night. Views from the land all the way to the coast, 15 mins to Kingscliff and Salt, 2 mins down the road to Tropical Fruit World. Really friendly owners, great apartment (spa and a _huge shower), and the pool is just outside your door.

We couldn't have found a better place for our first holiday with our dog. The property is perfectly set up with everything you need and more. We loved the fresh limes from the orchard. There are plenty of dog friendly places nearby to explore. We'll definitely be back.

Veronica and Rick are very warm and welcoming hosts. The accommodation provided has everything you need with a few extra luxuries thrown in. If you require peace and tranquility when staying on the North coast this is the place to stay. Next time we will be bringing our dogs for a holiday as well! :) Rick and Debbie.
