We will be back in October 21 while we build our new house! We hope to see you then!

I'm quirky, I'm artistic, I'm fun, I'm simple, I'm filled with good energies, I'm homely, I'm cosy... I am your perfect weekender retreat cabin in the Byron Bay hinterland. We LOVE hosting GENTLE souls and KIND people, adventurers and travellers, we'll do our best to make your stay a memorable one and guarantee you that you'll feel like home from the first minute. Your secret jungle abode is waiting for you.

The space
All the money collected is exclusively used to reforest and improve the natural habitat for the local wildlife. It is also used to make improvement on the cabin. The next step will be a new kitchen and we have recently renovated the bathroom thanks to your help.

Our renovated Bungalow is located in a lovely bush setting within a 50 acres property populated with koalas, wallabies, platypus, mainly forested.

The bungalow is an Open plan space (+/- 50 sq meters) with kitchenette (espresso machine included) queen size bed (hotel grade mattress), living room. It also has its own deck within a bush setting. BBQ.
The cabin is furnished in an eclectic and artistic style. It is not flashy but it is homely, fun and mainly suits people who enjoy nature and bohemian lifestyle. Don’t expect a dull soulless place in other words: nothing is brand new on purpose. The kitchen will need to upgraded at some stage!

The property offers superb views from Night Cap National Park, few creeks with hammocks where you are most welcomed to adventure yourself.

Located 5 min from Minyon Falls, 10 minutes easy drive from superb swimming holes and cascades, 30 minutes of picturesque drive from Byron Bay, 25 min from Lismore, Mullumbimby and Bangalow and less than an hour to Nimbin. Your cool local coffee or breakfast/lunch cafe is only located 10 minutes drive, in Federal

You will also be right in the centre of all the Sunday Markets in the area: Lismore, Nimbin, The Channon, Bangalow and Byron Bay.

The cabin can host two people with a possibility to add an extra person for an extra fee.

It is perfect for people who like to live in a laid back atmosphere.

Wi-Fi, TV, DVD, Netflix , Board games or a comfortable couch (or hammock) are there to entertain you during a lazy rainy day. In the fire season, enjoy your own outdoor fire in your private garden :-)

During your stay

Chendana is owned by a friendly couple. We speak Spanish, French and English (and a bit of Dutch) and will do whatever we can to offer you a memorable time in our beautiful area. As much as YOU want. To guarantee you total privacy, we usually keep to ourselves and have a pretty limited interaction with our guests. However, we're always very keen to interact with people, we're very open and curious to know more, so if you feel like chatting, hit us up!

We are however PROUDLY NOT a place for everyone :-)

Our commitment : provide you with a memorable stay, hosted by generous outgoing loving people who do whatever they can to make you feel home and welcomed from the first minute. We provide a safe place from everyone regardless of their skin colour, cultural background or sexuality. The cabin is thoroughly cleaned but is not brand new, you are likely to encounter cobwebs on the verandah, the kitchen is old and few furnitures are second hand. In other words: this is not a brand new cabin looking like an inner city display apartment (because this is the way we want it to be: bohemian with some soul).

Your commitment: be of generous and FRIENDLY nature. Preserve a safe place exempt of racism, bigotry, xenophobia or homophobia. You don't mind if the cabin is not brand new, furnished with second hand furnitures and if there are few cobwebs on the verandah as we live amongst a beautiful and lush setting filled with beautiful little creatures. You understand and recognise our generous nature and all the work involved hosting you. You also understand that for a similar booking price, you would get a motel room in Lismore but that we provide you with SO much more. It however doesn't means that we are a luxury resort at heavily discounted price. You understand that all what we've written above is to act as a natural REPELLENT to negativity, rude behaviour, bad vibes for the 0,5% of guests that should have never chosen our place in the first place because they made our life hell or made us feel very uncomfortable ;-) Haha! Now it's clearly communicated :-) ... guessing those people don't read this anyway ... oh well...

Read our ratings and you will realise that we're are genuinely the best host you could ever dream of and we're now sure that if you've decided to book with us that you will be the best airbnb guests ever too :-)
