The space

Before you read on, check out a guests review......

"This is a brilliant apartment. It is ideally located on the Richmond River and is a short walk to the centre of Ballina. The fittings and furnishings are all of the highest order with the beds being exceptionally comfortable. The kitchen appliances are all of high quality as is the crockery and glassware. We could not fault Villa Riviera in any way. The photos are a true reflection of the apartment which is often not the case. Do yourself a favour and book a week here!!"

Villa Riviera is a stunning, spacious split level river side apartment. Recently renovated and fully furnished in a comfortable contemporary style. Situated right on the beautiful Richmond River it provides you with your own backyard beach. Watch the leisure craft, fishing boats and bird life pass you by from the outdoor dining area or upstairs master bedroom. Guests have even greeted dolphins frolicking by.

The galley kitchen is equipped with modern facilities including dishwasher and is open to the lounge/dining and balcony areas for easy entertaining. Stretch out on the expansive lounge suite and enjoy a movie on the large wall mounted flat screen TV with 8 channel options and DVD. Dine inside or out, on either of the two comfortable dining suites - the choice is yours.

A second downstairs bathroom and a separate laundry comprising both washing machine and dryer are also provided.

The generous main bedroom features a luxurious king sized bed, wall mounted flat screen TV and oversized windows which stretch across the length of the entire room overlooking the Richmond River. A private lounge setting is also nestled next to the windows....perfect for a quiet cup of tea and a good book!

The roomy second bedroom is equipped with both a queen size and single bed with plenty of space to spare. Another large, flat screen TV is also wall mounted for the kids/another couple to enjoy.

All windows in the apartment have both sheer and blackout curtains in case you want to enjoy a luxurious sleep in! You can travel light as pillows, linen, beach and bath towels are provided and there is no extra charge for cleaning when staying 3 nights or more.

Tea and coffee are included along with a selection of basic cooking condiments to help you start your well deserved break!

Great place for a relaxing week. Breakfasts and evening drinks by the water. What's not to like.

This place is amazing! Massive bedrooms upstairs and a tv for all rooms (which really impressed our kids). I've been staying in Ballina for 25 years and I don't think I've stayed better. The view is unforgettable - better than photos can convey - and it's clear the hosts have thought of everything, even down to providing umbrellas in case of rain. Thanks for having us Paul and Dorothea.

The previous comments and pictures gave us confidence this would be a good place to stay. However, good as they are, they can not communicate the joy and satisfaction of living there. The daily visit of dolphins and Pelicans and the magnificent sunset and water views must be experienced in person. The fishing from the balcony and beach in front of the unit is surprisingly good. The feeling of security in parking and unit environment is also worry free. After 28 days of bliss we can readily add our recommendation of Villa Riviera as a great place st stay. 28/08 2017.

Always good to know how we can improve or where maintenance is required. It was a pleasure to meet you and it goes without saying that you and Irene are welcome back anytime. Safe travels!

Being the parents of a brood of seven, we just love having people around. Now that the kids have all grown up, we want to share our little river house knowing our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.
