The Space

Artistically and authentically renovated my "Tooraloo" Barnstay is an escape to Mother Nature and the authentic energy only a organic retreat can offer! Vintage wood and adornments will transport you to a world of farm fantasy…


Tooraloo Barnstay is set in the most desirable location in the Byron Bay shire. Quiet yet not remote – it is 5 minutes from every major town including Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Brunswick Heads, Bangalow, Lennox Heads, Broken Head, and (URL HIDDEN) is set serenely on 12 acres of historic Myocum Valley pastureland with unobstructed views. Cooling breezes waft over the property which was built over 100 years ago. Sunsets must be seen and cannot be imagined…

Concetta Antico's Barnstay



Over 100 years ago, when it was one of the original busy dairy concerns in the Byron Shire, the old McSwan Farmstead was known as the “showplace” of the emerald green Myocum Valley. Perched on a gentle hill with 360 degree views, boasting native birds, animals & magnificent heritage trees, the quintessential Australian Federation-style home was in need of love and care after years of neglect.


History of the Byron Bay Barnstay



Concetta amazingly found and purchased the property in early 2013, a sight unseen! (there’s definitely a book coming…), Concetta immediately saw the vision, beauty and potential of the charming rural property. A world renowned Fine Artist & Tetrachromat her vision was to retore it and create an artistic haven like no other. An Australian ex-pat, (originally from Sydney), Concetta has been living in San Diego, California since 1985, but had longed to return home to her beloved country one day. For over 25 years she has successfully run her Salon Of Art fine oil painting atelier there having taught over 20,000 students how to paint with oil on canvas.
