We had a lovely week in Bellingen & surrounds. Beautiful location & lookout. Decor was a bit dated and the kitchen appliances are in need of an upgrade. If you were downstairs it was very noisy when people were upstairs walking & talking. Generally the house was very pleasant with plenty of room for the 7 of us.

Website and gallery painted a wonderful picture. We were so looking forward to staying there. However, the reality is that it is over-priced and in serious need of a furniture and fittings upgrade. A thorough clean is also necessary. Bed rooms were ok but ensuites needed upgrading. We also had to be very careful getting into/out of the garage. Heavily...

Bella Vista Bellingen , hard to find, great to stay at. Follow Ford street , then Hill street, is Evans Street, a small Cul-de-sac where Bella Vista nestles among the tress. The house has accommodation on the top floor and the Garden room is downstairs and this is where we found ourselves on a very hot Dec afternoon. The room,...

We found this a very relaxing and comfortable stay. We ended up booking an extra night. Rooms are beautifully set out with TV and ensuite in all three rooms. Good sized family/kitchen area. Highly recommend this accommodation.

Nice location well out of town, lovely trees and palms surrounded the pool, which was not very inviting as it didn't look clean. Trees also create shade and our room, ground floor garden room was very dark. A large bush outside the patio door obscured the pool view. The apartment was very dated 60's. The carpet was very dirty.Booked to...

We had 2 nights here & really enjoyed a very peaceful stay ( admittedly there was no one in the upstairs house) The unit is a little old style but was very clean & comfortable. It had all of the necessary fittings & a great pool & garden. We will probably book here again when next in Bellingen.

Lovely setting and we were very sorry that we only stayed one night on our way up north. We stayed in the downstairs accommodation, comfy bed adequate kitchen and great value. The only thing I could say , like others have said, the staircase bit low when using the kitchen. Would recommend.

“If you only book one room you will be in the garden room downstairs. If you book 2 or 3 rooms, you will be upstairs. The upstairs and downstairs can be separated off at the staircase so you don't mix. The owner told us the only time he might rent out each room separately at the same time would be during peak times 2 or 3 times a year for a festival. In this case each room has its own lock and you'd be sharing the kitchen and lounge facilities.”
