Enjoy the beautiful 50 acres where wallabies and koalas are often seen. Treat yourself to a soak in the bath by candlelight before relaxing on the verandah with a sundowner while watching the alpacas graze in the paddock near the cottage. Your well behaved pets are welcome - they will think they have gone to doggy heaven with the beautiful bush walks or enjoying the many dog friendly beaches in the area.

Ndoto Cottage is fully self contained with an eat in kitchen and ensuite bathroom. Kids are welcome - a sofa bed and roll away are available. They will love the playground and trampoline.

So close to the beauty of Byron, Brunswick and Lennox Head beaches and the quaint and colorful village of Bangalow. All have award winning restaurants and fun nightlife to offer. Alternately, explore the beauty of the Hinterland with Minyon Falls on our doorstep.

You can be as busy or as relaxed as you like!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great escape! We had three days of quiet and relaxation. Wonderful location to Byron and Bangalow. Chris was a great host and the cottage was very comfortable with all the creature comforts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stay, just a little bit longer..... Head south from Brisbane, hit the Northern Rivers Hinterland and switch off your mobile... The windy roads into this property are just breathtaking. From the minute of arrival at the property, I just felt the fresh clean air wash over me and I instantly went into chill out mode. It helped that there is no reception on any gadgets so no distractions interrupted my peaceful zone. The relaxing vibe and easy going attitude of Chris and Kim (who are right next door) was so calming. It was really the perfect long weekend for purely relaxing. I can't believe how well/much I slept! The little cottage is perfect, I loved the rustic country feeling with the clean modern facilities. The sweet offerings of natural cereals, fresh eggs, milk, REAL coffee and butter provided was just so special and unexpected. My two dogs didn't want to come home - they just loved exploring all day; by Day 2 they thought they owned the place. We did half-day trips to the local markets, waterfalls, bushwalks and into Byron to the dog friendly beaches. I highly recommend this beautiful cottage as a home away from home; with just you and your loved one spending time to switch off from that outside world. Thanks again Chris and Kim for a lovely super long weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautful & peaceful property in the hinterland I had a great stay at Ndoto cottage. I was made very welcome and so were my pets Flint the dog and scarpuss the cat. The cat was unexpected, but I coundnt find a catsitter. I was going to take him to my sisters further down the coast, but he was welcomed too. Highly recommended, and central to both beaches and hinterland towns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cozy cottage getaway Our stay was magnificent, the cottage was spotless, well decorated and the fresh eggs and produce left for us was very much appreciated. Chris was a wonderful host and enjoyed a visit from Mabel the chocolate lab.
