Forest House is a 5-bedroom house that accommodates up to 12 people. It’s perfect for families or groups of friends who want to explore the NSW North Coast.

Set in a secluded spot, you’re surrounded by coastal rainforest and only 300m from the beach at Woody Head. Go swimming in Woody Bay, drop a line at one of the great fishing spots, or enjoy the spectacular views and spot whales in winter at Iluka Bluff lookout.

Here you’ll find everything you need for a family-friendly getaway. The large lounge room and dining area means there’s plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax.

After a busy day of exploring, sit on the verandah, deck or picnic tables and watch the kids play on the grassy lawn. As the sun sets, gather around the outdoor fire ring for a classic campfire experience, as the local kangaroos and wildlife graze nearby.
