Luxury Retreat Byron Bay Region
About Sarah Connellan
Hi, My name is Sarah and I am the owner of Toraja Luxury and Villa Toraja set in the hinterland of Byron Bay. My husband Damien and I purchased the property in 2001. We left Sydney with the view, to bring up our children in a more relaxed and rural environment. The five acre property has enabled me to live my childhood dream of having my horses on my own land and we regularly ride down at Seven Mile Beach, Lennox Head. IT DOES NOT GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!
Sarah Connellan purchased this House in 2012
Why Sarah Connellan chose Newrybar
We found this magnificent property overlooking farmland and out to the ocean. We have 180 degree sweeping views looking out Broken Head and all the way down to Evans Head. The perfect place to settle. Over time we decided to build a boutique guesthouse and share our special piece of the Byron Bay Hinterland paradise.
What makes this House unique
The lifestyle in this region is amazing and we are very blessed to have pristine beaches, fresh country air, and 5 star dining. Toraja Luxury is unique and conveniently located to Ballina/Byron Airport, Gold Coast International Airport and Brisbane.

We absolutely loved this beautiful guesthouse! It had everything we needed and was perfect for families. The views were spectacular and Sarah was lovely and very accommodating. We will definitely stay again!
Thank you, this is a beautiful place to stay ❤️
Amazing home, genuine hospitality!
Fantastic way to spend the long weekend in the hinterland with close proximity to all things Byron Bay! We loved our time here and we couldn’t ask for more. Can’t wait to be back!
Thank you so much for booking our Guesthouse and looking after Jewel, feeding her hay throughout the day, plus welcoming Carlos, Paolo and Buddy on your stay.
It was lovely to meet your family and we do hope you come and stay again on your next visit to Byron Bay.
Warm Regards, Sarah
Peace and tranquility
We loved staying at Toroja! The house is fabulous and equipped with everything you need. Nothing beats the tranquility and peace when having your first cup of coffee on the porch watching the sunrise over the ocean.
Can't wait to go back again.
Stunning property and beautiful location
Beautiful property in a stunning location with lovely hosts
A luxury escape.
We’ve had a lovely, relaxing break at Toraja for the past 10 days. We felt at home and loved admiring the stunning, changing views every day.
We had everything we needed, with a well appointed kitchen.
The showers are spot on. Large rain shower heads. Perfect.
The pool area lays in the afternoon light and is a welcome escape from the heat.
The location was excellent. Far enough that you could escape people if you wanted to, but close to both Ballina and Byron Bay, as well as little towns we highly recommend, including Bangalow, Newrybar and Lennox Head.
The house is light and airy, with doors and windows to capture the breeze from every angle.
The wide verandah was the perfect place to park yourself for hours on end.
The dogs, chickens and horses were a big hit with our three year old twins.
Thank you to Sarah for your hospitality.
