“Lovely little cabin to experience Byron.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013 via mobile

I have nothing but good things to say about Byron Haven. The owner, Paddy was a genuine lovely Aussie bloke. Picked us up from the bus stop in his car, made us feel welcome. Gave us a good rate. No dramas when we wanted to book an extra couple of nights. The cabin was very well presented, and spacious with mostly everything you need. Bed was cosy on a cold night. All appliances worked well, the shower was great. It's located very close to the beach and town, maybe 5-10 minutes walking. But for the price of that short walk you get an exclusive little cabin with plenty of privacy and peace and quiet when you want to retreat to your bed. It's worth a short walk believe me. Great place, great value for money, top owners, overall I would recommend without hesitation.

After a shocker of a hostel we left, we were looking at a place to stay the night in Byron Bay, went on byronbay/hostels site and found this place. It was about 9.30-10pm, the owner picked us up at the Commonwealth Bank to help us get to the place. Quite okay for value, $120 for a night - 2 double beds and very clean. Very quiet and peaceful, clean shower and a nice set-up.

Very close to town, about a 10min walk max. It is behind their own place, but never had any issues with them at all, definitely would come to this place again if I was to come to Byron.

Nothing in Byron Bay is cheap, and if you are willing to spend a few bucks more, than this might be your dream appartement for a few days in Byron. Located in Paddy's backyard and only a few minutes to walk from the city centre are two extra buildings housing a couple of large appartement rooms with a small bathroom, a kitchen (no boiler plate, though) and TV. The interior is lovely and the rooms are really big, ours had two king-sized beds. Everything is very clean and looks quite new.

The best of all is of course Paddy himself - an Australian original, and a very kind and helpful guy who doesn't talk too much and carries the luggage for the ladies. He gave us a lift from the bus stop, gave us some good tips on Byron Bay and was especially comforting when the main powerline broke down due to severe thunderstorms, and when we couldn't leave Byron anymore because of the closing of the Pacific Highway due to flooding.

If you have more luck with the weather, you will love to stay here - we did despite some heavy rain.

Excellent value for money, great location and great host. Paddy sets you into chill out mode immediately upon arrival with his rule - "just don't bring anyone else back at night so that we can all have a good sleep." No worries, Paddy.
It takes 5 minutes to walk to the shops and beach and has to be one of the best value pozzies in Byron. For a couple I wouldn't consider anywhere else.

Room Tip: There's only three and all more or less the same I'd imagine.

Value for money!
Paddy is a great host.
The fact you can walk to town and the beach is great - even able to go back and make your lunch to save some $$ then head back to beach!

If there was to be one negative out of an enjoyable stay - is the fact there is only a fan rather than an air con so in the peak of summer the rooms may be a tad warm ??

This is a great and informal place to stay in Byron. Also If the hotels are out of your price range this is a great alternative. Paddy is friendly and helpful, once we were shown to our cabin we didn't need to contact him until the day we left. When we did leave he let us leave our suitacses in the house before our airport pick up, which was really helpful. The cabin itself is large and spacious and has all the amenities you might need. It also has a big balcony. It is only about 10mins walk from the beach and in the Byron Bay town. Its quiet and peaceful and perfect for a romantic getaway.
