If Lennox Head is far from the maddening crowd, then Karen and Steve's VRBO is two steps past that. This spacious 2 bedroom is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood that is within a 10 minute walk of beaches, shopping and restaurants. The unit was in impeccable condition and in many ways has the feel of an upscale hotel. A minor inconvenience was the small bar sized fridge and hotplate for indoor cooking BUT the close proximity of an IGA Food Store compensated for this. The outdoor area had abundant seating and offered a quiet place to relax. So . . . enough about the dirt, bricks and mortar descriptions, the real treasure about this VRBO is the owners. Karen and Steve could not have been more accommodating, friendly and genuine. They were model hosts, nothing more needs to be said.
We took the advice of friends and had car rental during our one week stay. This allowed us to explore the surrounding areas and a trip to Byron Bay proved to be a good idea. Our most enjoyable experience was the hike from Lennox Head to Ballina. The landscape at times is breathtaking. If you decide to try this make sure to do a little research first as the walk will take around 3 hours and cover over 13 kilometres.
We really enjoyed spending two nights in Collett Cottage. It was a spotless and beautiful place. The highlights were the wood-burning fireplace that was on when we arrived (a really warm welcome! thank you once again!) and the orange juice maker with freshly picked oranges from the garden. We'd like to go back one day! Thank you for having us.
