Rental Home
In 6 acres of rainforest 6km from Bellingen in a world away from noise. Separate and private and self contained. A mixture of quirky, modern and rustic. We aim to provide an environment which is as far removed from a hotel as possible so have filled the space with Jack's award winning photos and some of our own quirky art and rustic antique pieces. Split level bedroom and living space. Queen size bed with freshly ironed top of the range sheets. We have identified 91 species of birds on our land, hear koalas, see possums, bandicoots, goannas and wallabies.

A stylishly appointed cabin in a beautiful location, with so much attention to detail. We loved it!
Set in stunning surroundings just a short drive from the centre of Bellingen, we had everything we needed at Critters. The fire had been lit in anticipation of our arrival, the beds were so comfortable, the kitchen was stocked thoughtfully. We especially loved Jack's homemade muesli and homemade yoghurt, which combined with the fresh eggs, bacon and sourdough provided, gave us a great start to the day. The cabin is decorated with individual and interesting pieces of art, photography and books - a feast for the eyes. We'd love to visit again, and highly recommend Critters. Helen and Jack gave us a warm welcome and are lovely hosts. Thank you!

Thank you Julie for such a fantastic review. We couldn't have asked for more perfect guests. When you arrived for the music festival your excitement was contagious. We loved having you stay and would have you back in a heartbeat. Best wishes. Helen and Jack

Beautiful studio surrounded by rain forest, friendly and generous hosts.
The location in a rain forest is beautiful and peaceful, with wonderful bird life. 5 minutes to Belligen which is filled with artisans, galleries and cafes. The studio was very comfortable with a wood fire to keep us cosy, and had interesting books,magazines and games, Our hosts were wonderful, very friendly and helpful We loved our week long holiday and intend to return,,

Thank you Robin and Jane for your lovely review. We loved meeting you and even a week wasn't long enough for us to enjoy your company. We are so inspired by positive people. You were perfect guests.
