This stunning architect-designed boutique retreat is located by a magical river - right at the end of backyard. Only 6 mins walk to the beach and recently built amidst the tranquility, safety and natural environment of South Golden Beach Village - 15 mins drive to Byron Bay. This gourmet home is light-filled with bi-fold doors and rammed earth walls. Want luxury, privacy, river views close to the beach? You've found your self-contained deluxe space. Even lovelier than photos.

The space
The house is architect designed by Murray Cox. It faces North East, catches lovely ocean breezes and you feel as though you are so far away from anything else. It's incredibly private as it looks over a river, and behind the river is nothing but nature reserve.

The spine down the middle of the house is constructed from Rammed Earth and is such a pleasure to live with. This house is truly exquisite and is even better than the photos in the flesh. Visitors say they feel as though they just melt when they walk into the space.

Guest access
You'll enjoy the entire house, excluding the small separate studio at the front. The main house and studio have completely separate entrances. There's a lovely quiet tenant staying in the studio (whom you're unlikely to see) . You will have absolute privacy, it's very quiet and you're likely to encounter just the resident echnidna, kookaburras and ducks on the river.

Other things to note
The calendar is correct and updated with details.

The main bedroom has an uber comfortable latex king size, looks out over the river and is huge... it's truly magnificent.

The second bedroom is huge and stunning too, and has a truly comfortable + deluxe latex king size mattress and looks over the private zen courtyard garden.

We have just had beautiful giant rosewood doors installed on the second bedroom. You can completely close off the huge second bedroom or open it up and enjoy it looking over the edible Zen garden. New photos of the second bedroom will be uploaded shortly. It's deluxe, boutique and all of the finishes are luxe + earthy. This retreat space/house is even better in the flesh than the photos. You'll love it!

Mobile phone reception is fairly good in the house with Telstra (occasional drop outs), but not great with Vodafone and Optus. You can make calls using Vodafone and Optus from the end of the driveaway.. 15 second walk.

Wi-fi is NBN and hi speed connection.

The chefs kitchen is equipped with the best of everything... Fisher and Pykel oven and 5 burner gas stove, Smeg dishwasher, Thermo mix, organic spices and fully equipped for all chefs and enthusiastic cooks alike.

Location

Ocean Shores, New South Wales, Australia

Deliciously quiet.. all you can hear inside the house and outside is the ocean and the birds. There is a nature reserve across the road (no houses) and it is at the end of a cul-de-sac so there is virtually no traffic at all.
