Description

Riverview Retreat is a double-story riverfront home with outstanding views, situated in the peace and quiet of the countryside just minutes from all the amenities of Ballina.

You have your own private jetty on the beautiful Richmond River.

Moor your boat or fish off the end while watching a glorious sunset.

If it's the ocean you want there's a thirty-kilometre stretch of unspoiled beach, the second longest in the State, just five minutes away see map. It's perfect for dog walking and has 4WD access.

The property is set on two and a half acres so the neighbours won't bother you.

Bring a nine iron and practise your pitching on the backyard fairway or borrow our set.

There's table tennis in the garage and a kayak for the river. Fishing rods and tackle are provided for catching dinner The Richmond River is a popular fishing spot with loads of good sized bream and flathead.

Or try the south Ballina break wall and the Pacific Ocean for the big stuff.

The new freeway from Byron Bay to Ballina is now open. It means Byron is less than thirty minutes away and the trip from Brisbane to the house is a little over two hours, double-lane all the way.

From the house catch the car ferry to Ballina for all the major supermarkets, clubs, restaurants, cinemas, ten pin bowling and an airport with jet service to Sydney and Melbourne. Byron Bay and Bangalow are only half an hour north up the highway or explore the mountains, orchards and macadamia farms in the hills around Lismore and picturesque Alstonville village.

There are three quality golf courses that you can easily drive to.

The roads and lanes around the property are completely flat and very popular with cyclists. There's a bicycle in the garage suitable for tall guests.

Riverview Retreat house details

The house has 3 double and one single bedroom upstairs - two with Queen sized beds and one with a double bed as well as the single and 2 rumpus rooms with double sofa beds and a single bed in the downstairs rumpus. The master bedroom has an ensuite and the other upstairs rooms share a bathroom.

The downstairs rumpus room has its own ensuite so is suitable as a bedroom for elderly guests who can't manage the stairs.

There is also an additional single bed mattress for a child if needed and a stair gate for toddlers.

All beds have blankets, quilts and pillows and linen and towels for two queen beds are included in the cost for stays of 5 nights and over. Extra linen can be hired.

Ask about our discount policy for guests happy to provide their own linen and towels.

Please note, discounts do not apply to stays under 5 nights.

The house has 3 bathrooms, 2 living areas, one with TV, stereo and DVD, as well as 2 outdoor table settings - one with a gas BBQ as well as an upstairs deck with river views that stretch for kilometres.

The kitchen is fully equiped with gas cooking, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, cutlery, crockery and the fridge and pantry contains some basics such as tea, coffee, sugar, milk and wine to welcome the guests.

The laundry has a washing machine and ironing facilities and there's a clothesline and pegs out the back.

There's a double garage to keep your cars out of the elements that also contains all the fun stuff like boogie boards, kayak - for adult use only -, fishing rods and folding chairs for the jetty, a bicycle, golf clubs and even a table tennis set.

You can check your emails by logging into our wifi - available in the dining room.

Riverview Retreat is Pet friendly

You can bring your dog to Riverview Retreat but we request that pets stay outside during the day and in the garage or laundry at night.

Patches beach is a lovely dog-friendly beach only a five minute drive away - one of the few off-leash beaches still on the North Coast. Dogs just love it and so will you.

If horses are your thing, Tassiriki horse ranch is a few minutes away and fantastic beach rides are their specialty

Golf clubs abound in the northern rivers. Our favourite is the Evans Head golf club, a 20 minute drive south via Woodburn. No problems getting on at this well-kept ten-hole course with great greens.

Or you can play for free on our backyard nine iron practice range.

Riverview Retreat offers that rare combination of secluded country estate set amongst beautiful natural features as well as close proximity to desirable urban amenities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful family river fun place! We have been using stayz for few years, and this one has to be one of the best! big enough for 3 families with 3 kids, and the house got everything we can think of to have a comfortable weekend away, the kitchen is amazingly full of cooking items, we can even make a cake from stretch! Lovely to have owner close by, thanks for posting left behind kid's shorts to us! The private jetty is all boy's favourite,for sure we will come back again for another great fishing weekend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A home away from home! We stayed for a long weekend with another family. There was plenty of room, the house was a home away from home - you wanted for nothing!! Although the house is a little dated, the house is exceptionally clean and tidy. There was plenty of space for us all (4 adults/4 kids), 3 bathrooms made is easy for everyone to shower and there are several sitting areas to cater for everyone. Next time we will stay longer! The owners were in residence next door. We went over to introduce ourselves, they were a delight to talk with and shared their local knowledge. Although they reside in the property next door, they were in no way intrusive during our stay. We would highly recommend the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous family holiday We had a fantastic 8 nights at Riverview retreat. The house is older style, but everything is in perfect working order, and the kitchen is amazingly well appointed - we had everything we needed to make a spectacular Christmas dinner for 9 people! There were all the things you need (but probably forgot to bring from home) like dishwasher tablets, cling wrap, herbs and spices, etc etc the walks around the house, and into the fields were great with the kids, and the beach wasn't too far away. And for those rainy days there are board games, dvds and books galore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Relaxing Place to Stay What a great retreat! The house was exceptionally clean with every convenience imaginable. Lovely sunrise and sunset views up and down the river from the jetty. Unfortunately due to previous rain the water was too muddy to fish. A really central place from which to explore nearby Ballina and the surrounding beaches. The hosts are friendly and readily available to answer questions or provide help if needed. Certainly on our revisiting list. We spent five nights at Riverview Retreat and could easily have stayed longer.
