The space

Our great little space is a private, one bedroom self contained unit, seperate from our property. In the spacious bedroom there is a comfy queen bed and the living space has a double sofa bed. The bathroom is a comfortable size with the obvious loo, basin and shower. You'll find plenty of wardrobe and drawer space in the bedroom and lots of empty cupboard space in the kitchen/living area. There is a bookshelf filled with books and useful local brochures for you to borrow whilst staying. The kitchen is well equipped, despite there being no conventional oven, however, there is everything else you could need including a mini oven, microwave, electric wok and grill, a small gas ring, toaster, kettle and plenty of equipment, enough to create a slap up roast if you so wish! Inside, you will also find a table and chairs to eat at or you may like to enjoy breakfast or a sunset meal at either the set outside your door or down in the garden at the beautiful bench my husband has made in memory of my father who has recently passed away. We are always open to ideas on how to make our guests stay more pleasurable!! Please note that at present, there is no wifi (Some people have managed to pick it up) & mobile reception can have a tendency to drop out, depending on which network you are with. Telstra appears to be the best provider here.

Guest access

Guests may park right outside their accommodation. There is just one little step up and in. The stunning area of Wenga Drive is hilly, great if you want a nice energising stroll in the morning to wake you up! We are surrounded by beautiful gardens and a macadamia farm. There are no fences therefore allowing the wallabies, echidnas and other interesting wildlife to bounce about all over the place. We are very respectful towards our wonderful and friendly neighbours and ask that you respect their privacy. The gardens beyond our house do not belong to us and the owner of the dam has asked to remind our guests that this place is out of bounds.

Other things to note

Our water is rain water, which is lovely, clean and fresh, however, we do recommend using the water filter in the fridge to make it even sweeter!! We are on a septic system here, so please only flush organic waste down the loo and sink. No harsh chemicals, greasy stuff or foreign objects please!! There is no washing machine, but if you need some washing done, please just ask and I am happy to pop it in our machine. There is a covered clothes line behind the accomadation.

I feel Sarah-Ania has provided EVERYTHING above & beyond any other accommodation we have previously stayed in. Certainly have never seen a kitchen so fully equipped!! The sunshine inside the home keeps it snug & welcoming. We have loved our stay & are extremely grateful we chose Heydens Retreat.

Hello there!
It's me, Sarah-Ania here.
Wife of Rob and Mum to Frazer (the other one with the moustache in the profile pic) and the gorgeous Izzy.
We are a little english family loving our life here in The Northern Rivers of New South Wales.
We decided it was too good to keep to ourselves and thought we might share it with you.
When we are not being busy with our many jobs or study, we love to socialise, beach walk with the pups, listen to music, snooze to a good movie (tell me you haven't done that!) and take in the views with a long chilled drink.
When we do get to travel it is usually back to Old Blighty, as Izzy did recently, however, Frazer travelled to Japan last year and Rob went off to Las Vegas for his brothers 50th.
Life is to be lived, enjoy every moment! (And don't forget to take photo's because, if like me, they can come in very handy in the future for reminiscing!)
