Perfect location, amazing, gracious house, thoughtful host! What more could you hope for?
We were greeted by a cheese platter and a bottle of champagne which set the mood for a great week. The location was perfect - out of the back packer fray but easy walking distance to shops, cafes, and the beach with little need for the car.
The house was spacious with a wonderful veranda to enjoy a glass of bubbly as the sun set! It's an easy 5 minute walk to the Clarke's beach cafe for breakfast followed by a walk along the beach to watch the whales and dolphins and up and onwards to the lighthouse if you are feeling energetic!
I've been to Byron Bay a few times but I've never enjoyed my stay as much as I did when we stayed at Turtle Bay. The house feels luxurious in a homey comfy way and one of my favourite spots was the day bed under the frangipani tree. Just one of the many nooks to relax there. And it's only 5 minutes walk to the beach and 5 min walk to the centre of town so you are close to everything you need. The house overlooks a lovely park and it's a really peaceful neighbourhood. I loved the thoughtful touches like the champagne and cheese platter when we arrived. This is a real gem. I've already booked my next stay at Turtle Bay. Can't wait
We recently stayed for a week at Turtle Bay, and could not have made a better choice of accommodation for our extended family group of 5 adults and 3 children. To top it off, we were welcomed with a delicious cheese platter and a bottle of chilled, sparkling wine!
The house was absolutely gorgeous and beautifully decorated with a relaxing colour scheme and a comfortable and practical layout. The children loved having their own separate play room (as did we!) with Fox TV, lovely sofas and large tables for their art and craft. The open plan kitchen and main living area contained a huge dining table for 8, an enormous breakfast bar and 3 gorgeous sofas, and opened directly onto a large deck with another massive outdoor table, so there were multiple choices for dining locations. There was also another sunny breakfast bar out the back and a lovely day lounge/BBQ area on the side. A week was not long enough to experience all there was to offer in this amazingly designed and beautiful home!
Turtle Bay's location was idyllic with just a short walk to the beach (via a relaxing nature trail) or to the large Woolworths or many bars and restaurants that Byron Bay has on offer. (The hosts kindly supply helpful folders with dining and tourist recommendations and reviews.) Byron Bay's iconic Watego's Beach and lighthouse are within a 30-40 min walk which is a must-do.
Nothing was overlooked in this holiday home (from beach towels to bikes in the garage!) and I could not recommend Turtle Bay highly enough for a relaxing short or extended stay for a large family or group - I was sad to leave but will be back again. Thank you to the wonderful owners for such a luxurious and lovely stay in Byron Bay.
We had the absolute pleasure of staying at Turtle Bay Byron for a week recently for our eldest daughter's wedding celebrations in the Hinterland. The house was perfect for our family, Mum and Dad and grown up siblings and partners, plenty of space, modern and extremely well equipped. The location of Turtle Bay is also perfect, walking distance to everything and Jen was so lovely and very accommodating. The delicious cheese platter and wine on arrival was exactly what we needed after our road trip from Sydney. Thank you Jen and Turtle Bay Byron - we will definitely be back - I didn't want to leave :)
