The BlueGreen House and Studio were voted 1 of Australia's 100 GREAT HOLIDAY HOMES by Australian Traveller and recently featured on Channel 7;s SYDNEY WEEKENDER. Check out their website and also our own website for a more comprehensive look at the BlueGreen House and Studio and for up to date pricing, packages, specials etc.
The two bedroom, two bathroom holiday house resides on five blissful acres, with alpacas, wild ducks and horses roaming the landscaped gardens.
Through the huge entrance doors, the first glimpse of the pool, tiled a dark sapphire and heated for those cool winter days.... and beyond, the verdant gardens and thatched gazebo poised over the lake.
On the ground floor, the stainless-steel kitchen extends to an outside barbeque, then open-plans to the dining area and soaring ceiling of the living room. Sandstone surrounds the fireplace and the entire wall bi-folds open to invite in the balmy air and light of the sub-tropics.
The second bedroom has a three metre long double-bed with the same length overhead bunk, perfect for pyjama parties! Sleeps two adults – or four children. In the bathroom is a huge handmade bath, twin vanities, one exactly the right height for the little person who usually has to use a stepladder to brush their teeth, and a satin-jet shower.
Upstairs is the romantic main bedroom with its pitched ceiling exposing bare trusses; a king four-poster bed hand crafted out of recycled timber, and a terrazzo spa-bath with glass and marble tiles. In the bathroom the glass vanity holds twin African bowls, and the bi-fold doors open up to a sandstone courtyard with an outdoor rain shower. Sleeps two adults.
The BlueGreen House is a self contained private house situated next to the studio with its own access, entrance and parking. The pool belongs to the house and is for the EXCLUSIVE use of BlueGreen House guests.

Self-catering and semi-detached, the Studio is a charm-filled one bedroom, one bathroom space and outdoor gazebo.
For the entry, we found some old schoolhouse doors that were painted a shiny forest green, on top of bright yellow, over mission brown. We stripped and peeled and sanded down to the lovely timber, replaced the broken panes with stained glass, and voila! – beautiful.
An oversized deck roofed with thatch makes up the casual living area, offering a grass-fringed view of the garden.
The little sun-room is tiled with an eclectic mix of Jatana tiles and leads into the timber-floored bedroom. Off the bedroom is a marble-tiled ensuite, with a handmade terrazzo bath and rain shower. There’s even a compact kitchen with a hand-painted counter top. Accommodates a maximum of two adults.

With generous and stylish accommodation combined with beautifully landscaped gardens, alpacas, ponies, boardwalks, and a thatched gazebo over the lake, BlueGreen is the ideal getaway for both executive couples and the whole family, even your pets!

It’s a place to bask in the simple pleasures of life: waking up to birdsong and a gentle mist drifting off the lake; brewing coffee that was grown and roasted next door; foraging the farmers’ markets and local ‘honesty stalls’ for just-picked organic foods...

Here are a few comments from some of our guests.
An executive couple had this to say:
"What a treat! We enjoyed every minute of our stay and were tempted to change the locks! See you again"
"A special place in our hearts - always! Our dream home - we love it! (you have inspired us to build our own house one day) A beautiful luxurious setting to relax with my bridesmaids before I got married.I will never forget the feeling of putting on my wedding dress upstairs in this house! The pool is amazing with fantastic sky and valley views: time stood still as we honeymooned in each magical setting; spas galore!!!! The best bedroom spa on the north coast - very romantic!!! No need to keep searching the internet when the perfect getaway is here - pure heaven! We hope to be back next year for our 1 year anniversary "

We relaxed away from the big smoke. We had everything necessary to do it. Thanks for making time for all four of us. The extras were very much appreciated and we hope to be back soon. You have a very special place here.
A couple from QLD had this to say:
What a find! Simon and Dolores you have created the perfect hinterland getaway. We loved everything especially the outdoor shower and of course your wonderful company. Thanks for everything. PS: Big thanks for the eggs and organising our massages we thought we were all at the Golden Door Retreat!

Family of 5 from Vic
" Thank you Simon and Dolores for creating such a lovely sanctuary where all of our needs were so perfectly met. We loved everything about the BlueGreen House and you enabled us to have the holiday we have been dreaming about for the last 10 years See you soon."
We have tried very hard to make our property unique and to offer lots of added value so we were naturally very thrilled with their feedback.
