Our comfortable two bedroom cottage is situated on the Tweed River with views to Mt Warning. It is located at the end of a quiet cul de sac in the town of Murwillumbah and set in a picturesque valley just a short drive from the Tweed and Gold Coasts.
We are within walking distance to the shopping centre, cafes, pubs and clubs of Murwillumbah, Greenhills Function Centre and the Tweed Regional Art Gallery with the Margaret Olley Centre and cafe. There are many attractions in and surrounding the town including the heritage listed national parks of Mount Warning and the Border Ranges. We are 45 minutes drive from Byron Bay, 30 mins from the Gold Coast and 15 mins from the Tweed Coast beaches. We are approximately 2 hours south of Brisbane and the Gold Coast airport is a 25 mins drive.
Our cottage has two bedrooms both with queen size beds and ceiling fans and can comfortably sleep four people. There is one bathroom. We do not allow children under the age of 12 years.
The cottage is fully self contained with two bedrooms each with a Queen size bed including bedlinen, a bathroom including towels, a separate living room with plasma TV and sound system, dining room and kitchen which is equipped with oven, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, crockery, glasses, cutlery, pots and pans.

The cottage is adjoined by an enclosed walkway/room to a modern extension where my husband and I live and this area will not be shared with guests.
Interaction with guests
Guests will have complete privacy however my husband and I are happy to interact with guests and also offer advice or information on the local area and what it has to offer.
Other things to note
We would like a minimum of 24 hours notice of a booking.
We would expect guests to behave in an orderly fashion and leave the cottage clean and tidy. As the property is not fenced we do not allow pets. There is no smoking. Also when using the air conditioning units please ensure that the windows and doors are closed and please turn them and the lights off when leaving the cottage.
My husband Peter and I are semi retired. We enjoy living in Murwillumbah and particularly on the Tweed River where we enjoy the views and ambience. Our interests include walking, swimming, kayaking on the river and gardening. We like reading, listening to music, going to the cinema and visiting the local art gallery.
We love travelling and experiencing different cultures. We like travelling independently as opposed to organised tours. Among our favourite destinations are New York City, the Greek Islands, mainly Santorini and Crete and Duma Tau safari camp in Botswana. Other countries that stand out are Turkey, Mexico and Peru. One of our favourite holidays was travelling around the UK and Europe in the late seventies in a camper van with our two young children.
