The property garden is a well-spring of various forms of life. The creek and nearby tracts of rainforest bring in a variety of water birds and parrots. We have several fish ponds, which bring in frogs and dragonflies. And an extensive veggie garden where there is always something flowering, bringing in bees and butterflies, grasshoppers and other wondrous things. If you like the natural world, you will love this garden.
The space would serve those in search of relaxation and replenishment, or just wanting a break from the hustle of modern life an take a long slow breath in a beautiful place with someone you love to be with.
The property is 1.3 acres of gardens and bush, adjacent to a park and small creek that brings in an abundance of birdlife. Your suite is the second floor of 'The Big House', with a private terrace overlooking the park and creek, a kitchenette with a fridge, wine glasses, organic teas and coffee.
We share with you a downstairs kitchen and lounge, and believe ourselves easy going and unobtrusive, or up for a chat if you enjoy meeting new people. We do, and we value everyone's privacy. The suite and house are full of original art, interesting artefacts, books and bohemian decor from around the world.
Your private space occupies its own floor of The Big House, with a spacious en-suite, your own veranda with chairs and table, walk in robe, organic breakfast supplies, tea and coffee making facilities with fridge, dining / sitting table. You also have access to a gourmet kitchen, dining table, lounge, media room, day bed area and a large covered deck with BBQ, comfy chairs and views of the creek and valley.
Downstairs is the Day Spa treatment room, offering a range of services from relaxation massage and facials to pain relief and therapy on old gnarly injuries and other aches and pains. Arisa has been described as a wise medicine woman, a gifted healer, calming, always easy going and attentive.
Your private space is the whole of the second floor of the Big House ... we call it that because there's enough space between the house, gardens and studio for us to disappear to ensure your privacy ... an SMS or a holler of hello is all it usually takes to find us.
We are quite comfortable indulging our passion as writers in our private wing of the main house, or tending to the gardens, the various critters or working away on a project of some kind.
The property is part of Costner Park, a small enclave of acreage properties surrounded by declared bushland at the coast-end of Tallebudgera Valley. There are numerous walks, picnic spots and swimming holes nearby.
The nearest of several amazing beaches - Burleigh Heads - is 15 minutes away. Even closer is a place to hire a kayak or paddle board and cruise the Tallebudgera waterways.
Burleigh West, about 10 minutes drive, is a village with several cafes and restaurants. Along the way you will pass the Heritage Hideaway Cafe, a true local gem that serves legendary breakfasts and lunches in an atmosphere unique to the valley.
A few minutes further down the road, James Street is at the centre of the restaurant culture of Burleigh, and walking distance from the beach.
Burleigh West is also home to David Fleay's WIldlife Sanctuary on the bank of the mouth of the Tallebudgera Creek by then, it looks more like a river. Right by the entrance to Fleays is the beginning of a paved walk along the creek edge that goes all the way to Burleigh Heads, about 6km.
