My husband and I stayed at The Earthhouse earlier on in the year in January as we were attending a Wedding in Byron Bay. Our stay was nothing short of amazing.
Jackie was the most accommodating host (with the best advice about where to eat and coffee!) and her dog Chocolate a lovely breakfast companion. The breakfast each morning was devine with homemade bread, muesli, fresh orange juice, fruit, coffee and tea enjoyed outside each morning overlooking the lovely scenery listening to the local native birds.
The premises is spotless and effortlessly styled with beautiful natural lemon myrtle shower products. You feel like you are staying in a place straight out of a magazine. Chic but grounded at the same time.
The setting of The Earthhouse is spectacular overlooking the valley and the location is super close to Bangalow and within easy driving distance to the Byron Bay centre. Since The Earthouse is out of the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay it is the perfect place to stay and explore the wider hinterland surrounds (Clunes, Possum Creek, Mullumbimby, Bangalow, Newrybar etc). This is definitely a place we will stay at again should we be returning to the Byron Bay region.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- EarthHouse is a unique guesthouse, built from local rammed earth, situated in the picturesque hills of the North Coast of New South Wales. Located just 10 minutes from Bangalow on a 100 acre working farm, EarthHouse comprises of two independent suites, each with queen bed, large ensuite bathroom, dressing room, breakfast pantry, and an adjoining private courtyard. The EarthHouse philosophy is tasteful simplicity, inspired by and sympathetic to, the natural environment. Every care has been made to ensure the comfort of guests, whilst being sensitive to the earth from which it was built. Both rooms have spectacular views from the wide verandah, across the Corndale Valley and beyond to the Nightcap ranges. The EarthHouse began when owners Alastair and Jackie Black, moved to the area in 2005 from a sheep and cattle station in North West NSW. After many years of experience with renovating houses, they endeavored to build an ecologically sound house and cottage that included many of the best ideas from previous homes. The rammed earth approach to building was chosen because of its unique look, and its exceptional thermal qualities. A typical seasonal breakfast includes freshly ground local coffee, loose leaf teas, freshly squeezed juice, fresh seasonal fruit, home-baked sour dough bread, homemade spreads, muesli and yoghurt. EXTRAS Wine/champagne and cheese platters can be arranged for your arrival. Massages and yoga lessons can also be arranged. ... more less
