Just outside the village of Main Arm, in the hills behind Mullumbimby there’s a clearing in the forest with a small group of cottages known as Palmwoods. The house is nestled under beautiful cliffs with a lovely view of the valley, and gorgeous waterfalls with swimming holes 5 minutes walk from the front door. Only 20 minutes to the beautiful beach and river of Brunswick Heads, 35 minutes to Byron Bay, and 40 minutes to Gold Coast Airport, the location is close enough to explore beautiful Byron Shire, and then escape the busy-ness of town to a relaxing rural retreat.

The space

The property is versatile and comprises 3 buildings – the main house, a studio cottage (rented out long term) and a solid shed. The house has loads of rustic charm with high ceilings, hardwood floors, elevated timber decks with fantastic escarpment and valley views. The original timber clad cottage has 2 bedrooms plus a sleep out, 1 bathroom, a yoga space, a media room, comfortable kitchen with huge oven and dishwasher and 2 verandas. There is no TV reception, however the wifi is fast, and so TV can be streamed easily through a computer/HDMI cord to the TV.

Guest access

There is only one floor, but it is on the side of a hill, so there are stairs down to the entrance.


The land is shared with two long term tenants, one in the studio next door, and one in a separate dwelling downstairs, all with private entrances. They keep to themselves, but are lovely people and there to help if needed. :)
