Simply awesome. The only difficulty experienced in 4 nights at the Kookaburra beach cottage was leaving! A beautifully maintained self contained cottage with all of the mod cons, tastefully decorated and you're left wanting for nothing. It's the perfect base to explore Byron Bay and surrounding attractions. Tranquil and peaceful, a stones-throw from the beautiful Tallow beach, it's close enough to town also. You'll receive a warm welcome from the wonderful Helen. Will definitely be back.

“Perfection”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The perfect bungalow in the perfect location. Superbly renovated & beautifully decorated, set in a secluded spot between bush & beach, our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.
All our needs were catered for, everything you could want was provided. Close to shops in lovely Suffolk Park & a short drive to Byron Bay.
Helene was a fantastic host. Warm & friendly and at our disposal. We'd recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in Byron Bay.

“Impeccably clean and well presented with all amenities that you need.”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Helene gave us such a warm welcome. The accomodation is in a very secluded and quiet area with front and rear verandas to follow the sun :) It was lovely to breakfast outside and take a very short stroll, less than 2 minutes to the beach. Very well appointed kitchen and bathrooms, all impeccably clean. Can't wait to return for more R & R....

“An elegant and relaxing alternative to busy Byron central”

This is a small two bedroom cottage in a gated community at Tallow's beach. It's a 10 minute drive to the restaurants and shops in bustling Byron Bay, and only a two minute walk through the property to a glorious beach.The cottage is elegantly fitted out, with two ensuite bathrooms, comfy beds, nice furniture and a well-equipped kitchen. It is at least as nice as the photos make it look, with two decks, the larger overlooking bush that leads down to the estuary. All you hear is the sea and the birdlife. The owner is friendly, efficient and helpful. We felt we had found the perfect place in a perfect location for a holiday.
