We found this a very relaxing and comfortable stay. We ended up booking an extra night. Rooms are beautifully set out with TV and ensuite in all three rooms. Good sized family/kitchen area. Highly recommend this accommodation.

Nice location well out of town, lovely trees and palms surrounded the pool, which was not very inviting as it didn't look clean. Trees also create shade and our room, ground floor garden room was very dark. A large bush outside the patio door obscured the pool view. The apartment was very dated 60's. The carpet was very dirty.Booked to... More

We had 2 nights here & really enjoyed a very peaceful stay ( admittedly there was no one in the upstairs house) The unit is a little old style but was very clean & comfortable. It had all of the necessary fittings & a great pool & garden. We will probably book here again when next in Bellingen.

Lovely setting and we were very sorry that we only stayed one night on our way up north. We stayed in the downstairs accommodation, comfy bed adequate kitchen and great value. The only thing I could say , like others have said, the staircase bit low when using the kitchen. Would recommend.

Without at least moderate fitness, you'll need a car, not to walk into town, but to walk back, as there is a wee bit of a hill. If you *have* a car, you'll need to be pretty confident with driving in tight confines on a fairly steep hill. Those two matters aside, this place was tremendous, and excellent value. We... More

We stayed in the downstairs section and it was very comfortable for two nights. The rooms were very clean and it was really nice to have some breakfast included in the tariff. Not a lot to cook with but there is amazing food in town anyway! Bellingen is a LOVELY place and we would definitely stay here again. Tip: if... More

On arrival we took one look around and immediately tried to extend our stay - sadly no dice. We loved Bella Visa. The location is way up a huge hill in what appeared to be the most spectacular residential area of the gorgeous hippy town of Bellingen (10 min walk into town, much much harder on the way back up)....

I had the garden apartment which looks out over the pool and palms - it's like a resort pool and I wish I was there in summer! The apartment was fully equipped, had a lovely feel to it and for a small family, a real bargain. Michaela, the host is a special person! My only problem was actually finding it!... More

A 10 minute drive and you can swim in the most romantic and refreshing fresh water swimming holes along the Never Never Creek in the 'Promised Land', or in the myriad of other creeks and rivers which this region is known for. All this, only 30 minutes drive from Coffs Harbour airport. ... more   less

“If you only book one room you will be in the garden room downstairs. If you book 2 or 3 rooms, you will be upstairs. The upstairs and downstairs can be separated off at the staircase so you don't mix. The owner told us the only time he might rent out each room separately at the same time would be during peak times 2 or 3 times a year for a festival. In this case each room has its own lock and you'd be sharing the kitchen and lounge facilities.”
