Offering open plan warehouse style living, The Big Blue Barn is perfectly suited for friends and families who fancy an incredibly relaxed holiday with plenty of space to unwind
Sleeping 15 comfortably in 4 bedrooms, completely 'get together' friendly, fantastic for children, and pet friendly.
Enter along the private tree-lined road, splash around in the pool in a tropical oasis setting. Relax on the entrance deck or BBQ in the paved side courtyard area while enjoying a drink at the Tiki Bar. Or simply while away your time in the lush gardens and the fields a-plenty getting a good dose of fresh country air.
The Big Blue Barn features 3 bedrooms each with a queen size bed (two loft style with single beds also), and a 'Nook Room" with 3 bunk beds, a fully equipped kitchen, 4 showers, 1 bath and 3 toilets – an indoor bathroom and a fun outside bathroom block – hot showers while overlooking the cow paddocks. A small bonfire pit ouside and a cosy pot belly stove inside in an absolutely enormous living space to be free to do whatever you please — enjoy the pool table, ping-pong, tv/dvd and stereo.
Perfectly situated in the heart of the Byron Shire, the Barn is an easy 5 minute drive to the beach, 5 minutes to Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads and 15 minutes to the centre of Byron Bay.
25 minutes from Ballina airport and 35 minutes from Coolangatta (Gold Coast) airport. Take a direct shuttle bus from either airport to the Mullumbimby drop off - Uncle Tom’s Pie shop where you either cross the road to the property or we can come and meet you and your luggage and offer you a ride to the Barn.
We look forward to having you stay!
