In the northern outskirts of Lismore City, on Tourist Scenic Drive 32, lies an original 1930s Art Deco 2-bedroom Queenslander farm house with a log fire and own swimming pool.

There are no other holiday-makers on this quiet and peaceful 5-acre property which means you have the large, salt-water swimming pool with covered timber deck all to yourselves during the swimming season.

It's very accessible and easily found providing a central base for Lismore & Byron Bay's Rainbow Region.

It's handy to Nimbin village 12km further up the road and Lismore City 18km (15mins) south from which Byron Bay can be reached in 40 minutes. A bus stop is at the front gates for local buses, tourist coaches and the Nimbin-Byron Shuttle.

Inside this grand country house, gracious rooms are perfectly complemented by extensive contemporary facilities.

Getting away ... in comfort

A fully-equipped kitchen (pictured) with stainless steel appliances including dishwasher is available to prepare meals that can be enjoyed in the large country-elegant dining room (pictured) or, more casually, on one of the three verandas.

The lounge room features a log fire (pictured), a bay window, ceiling fan and French doors. It has a High Definition digital digital 32" (1366x768) LCD eco-friendly Television with DTV USB recording, USB infoLink & 4 x HDMI receiving all free land to air channels; a 5.1 HDMI upscaling DVD player with USB , a games table, library and tourist information. The sofa converts for the extra person charge into a double bed with inner-spring mattress which can sleep an extra one person.

Complimentary Wireless Broadband (limits apply) and local daily newspaper as well as optional extras also available.

A wide North Veranda (pictured) furnished with exercise equipment, day bed, tables and chairs connects the two bedrooms (pictured) via French doors. It's ideal for kids and pets.

The Bedrooms

There are two well appointed bedrooms:

The Master Bedroom has a queen-size bed with matching Deco bedside tables and lamps (pictured), vanity (cabinet de toilette), Deco dressing table, full size wardrobe, bay window and French doors opening onto the North Veranda (pictured). The below rates are for 1 or 2 people in this room; extra person charge applies for a room each.

The adjacent Black and Gold bedroom has twin single beds with lamps & bedside table and can be booked for the extra person charge. It has a vanity (cabinet de toilette), Deco wardrobe with full-size mirror and French doors opening onto the North Veranda connecting with the Master bedroom.

A double sofa bed with an inner spring mattress can be booked to sleep an extra person in the lounge room.

A large, luxurious bathroom features a full-size bath, separate shower recess, vanity & dual-flush toilet. As befits this beautiful rainforest residence, your water supply is pure, soft rainwater.

Aldwych Park is a self-sustaining house on an eco-friendly property which is a carbon sink (carbon negative). The property is being regenerated by the resident owner from a degraded cattle property and is a registered Land for Wildlife property.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of character Myself and the family thoroughly enjoyed our winter stay here. Warm fire on a cold night cant beat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rainbow Stay is better than good! thanks for a great break, clean, private, comfortable and casual. Very relaxing peaceful environment in a truly breathtaking area. Geoffrey will put you at ease from the moment you get there. Just bring the basics the rest is already there. Swimming pool is clean, BIG, and hard to stay away from. Highly recommend. Hope to go back again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than we expected - or used to! The attention to detail is creditable where everything has been thought of for your comfort. Very quiet, relaxing, green location but close to all the major tourist attractions. Excellent value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely everything to make the house comfortable was thought of and we did appreciate the attention to detail. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially the nights with the orchestra of frogs & the dark starlit nights. My mother was intrigued, having never stayed anywhere except in hotels before, and has been converted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great views, house was lovely. Quite noisy as it is in front of a school and on a very busy road. Was not ideal for my dog as it had nowhere to have a run off lead. No fencing at all and would not encourage young children to be in the garden area on there own.
