Absolutely perfect stay. A great find. Ben the host was excellent, and recommended a local restaurant Che Bon, which was top class. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and would not hesitate to return, thank you Ben.

Excellent base for exploring Ballina and surrounds. Newly renovated so everything was in top condition. Firm, comfy bed and great pillows. Road noise was minimal, and amenities were in easy walking distance.
