Welcome to" Your home away from home" you will love the uniqueness. One of 5 Units with kithenette @ Sonjas B&B. Looks over to old Mine fields. plenty of parking, Amazing views from the balcony to watch the sunrises and sunsets. Bird attracting trees . Breakfast $22 per person. The friendly Opal Mining town of L R is full of art and culture, amazing characters and attractions. You will need a few days to appreciate the culture. Maybe you will be lucky enough to find an opal while fossicking.

The only place I would stay in Lightning Ridge. Sonja was most accomodating and the units are perfect.

We were disappointed , cramped spaces. Also disappointed in host. I have been using Airbnb for many years and this is the first time that our expectations were not met!

A private home is more suited to your needs so you do not need to mingle with other B & B guests. May I suggest smoking away from house as courtesy to other quests.

Loved the plants surrounding the units. The apartment we stayed in was cramped however it had everything we needed. Including towels for us to use after we had a swim in the bore pool.
