“Amazing spot”
Reviewed March 3, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This place just exceeded all expectations. Located in the heart of Palmer Island, not far from the Pacific Highway and an easy drive into Yamba, it is the perfect getaway. Pete and Carol are wonderful hosts; warm and welcoming but easy-going and relaxed, leaving guests in peace but always up for a chat. The accommodation is immaculately clean and the whole place has real character, with a large living/sleeping area, great bathroom/shower and a wonderful outside area, giving the impression of a little tropical paradise. There is shared access to a lovely outside pool and the house is only 5 minutes from the Clarence river. Enjoyed BBQs in the evening, listening to the occasional croak from the green frogs and relaxing in the warm summer air. Perfect for a couple or small family, though perhaps the fridge is a bit small. Can't wait to go back again. Top place, top location, top hosts!

This place is so beautiful, the pictures don't do justice! Beautiful coloured walls, wonderful flooring. It's stylishly done up, with lots of attention to detail. Bed linen is very comfortable and very pretty! We sat in the living room in the evening, reading and taking in the lovely interiors!
Spacious rooms, spacious bathroom. We travelled with our 14 yr old daughter , who is in a wheelchair and it was perfect.
Outdoor seating area, with BBQ is paradise.
And looking out at the macadamia plantation and all the nature around was so relaxing. We even saw the milky way at night, thanks to the clear clean air with no light pollution!
There is wonderful kitchenette with everything we needed. And fresh herbs in the sit out area.
Lots of shops and restaurants closeby, a ten minute drive away. We had fish and chips at a great place recommended to us by Pete.
We were thoroughly pampered by Pete and his wife! We'd go back in a heartbeat!
Thanks for the great stay!
