Cutest little beach house in the tiny village of Mylestom nestled between the ocean and the Bellinger River, just far enough from the highway (4 kms) not to hear any traffic, and close enough to the ocean (over the sand dune) to hear the waves.

The space

The house is well equipped for overnight or longer stays. The decor is bright & welcoming so you feel instantly at home. The beach is so close that you hear and even smell it. The river with picnic tables amazing sunsets is a two minutewalk and Bellingen is a beautiful drive just 19 kms along Waterfall Way. Coffs Harbour is about 25 kms & Sawtell is less than 20 kms if you want to shop, go to the movies and dine out.

Guest access

In the house there is full kitchen facilities, flat screen TV, DVD, stereo with ipod deck, double bed room, queen bedroom, bathroom with bath/shower and toilet. There is a sofa bed in the lounge room. There is room for a medium sized car and boats or bikes underneath the house. Laundry facilities also under the house.
There is a semi-enclosed verandah by the front door and decks both front and back for enjoying the fresh sea air.

Interaction with guests

Depends whether I am away working, but if not, I live in the studio behind the house. I can access the studio via a rear lane if you like complete privacy, otherwise I usually would share the space under the house for my access.

Other things to note

The lounge room has a lovely art deco fireplace but the chimney is not a goer, sorry. If it's cold there are electric heaters. Alternatively the beach is a great place for an open fire at dusk. And the river bank has wood burning and gas barbecues plus loads of picnic tables.
There are stairs with rails to both the front and back doors.
The shower in the bathroom is within a full size bath, you have to be able to step in over the side of the regular size bath. There is an outside cold shower for rinsing off after the beach. If the bath is an issue, ask me about access to another shower in the garage which is used for storage only.
Please note that linen is NOT supplied apart from tea towels & bathmats.
If you like to bring a dog, it must remain outside of the house at all times. Please enquire further prior to committing to a booking.

Absolutely beautiful. A fewminutes walk to an incredible beach, the house is lovely with everything you need and tucked away in the most private little spot. Great for a chilled out getaway :) will be back!

Jill's place is a lovely old beach house situated in a very quiet street. The beach is a 2 minute walk through the bush, and riverfront 5 minutes at the other end of the street. Spacious home with lots of character. Bellingen and Sawtell 20 minutes away by car.

A quiet, traditional family beach holiday house. Great cooking facilities, storage areas for bikes, kayaks etc. Walk a short distance to both beach and river. A short drive to Urunga supermarket or north to Sawtell for restaurants or Bellingen for arts and crafts.

The house was tidy and well appointed. I was delighted to find a copy of Siddartha by Herman Hesse on the shelves, a book which changed my life when I first read it as a teenager. It was great to read again in the comfort of Jill's home and with the great Bellinger river at the end of the street to watch and contemplate. The beach just behind the house was vast and completely empty. A beautiful location to fine ourselves in.

I worked in public health as a hospital pharmacist until recently. I love to travel and enjoy meeting new people and helping holiday makers find places that aren't on the beaten track. I bought this little beach house last year to enjoy the winter sun and the proximity to the vast beach and the lovelyBellinger river. I have made it cosy and comfortable and it has quickly become very popular for holidays and family get-togethers.
