Absolutely amazing place to stay. My husband needed somewhere quiet to recuperate after surgery and the kids needed somewhere to fun. There are endless things to do here and places to explore. The staff go out of their way to be helpful. The permanent residents are delightful. It is so quiet and perfectly located. I can’t rate this place highly enough.

The property was good that it was close to Ballina town centre and was convenient. The front door however did not work the entire time we were staying there and so our belongings could have been taken. Also there was no parking for the other adults staying in the cabin, not even in the guests area. Check in was terrible - in that we had a one hour block between 200pm and 3:00pm to check in and make payment.

1. Front door would not lock from the outside with the key 2. Austar box was broken - no access to pay tv 3. A random guy tried to gain access into our cabin whilst my daughter was alone studying inside. We notified staff and it was just dismissed and they stated that this guy worked for Origin energy and needed to go into our room without any other explanation. Management did not notify us prior or after, until i approached them.
