“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2011

Perfectly located between the lighthouse and town center, the rooms are spacious and spotless and the hospitality is first-rate. I was recommend The Cape Beach House by a friend and I will definitely be passing on my highest recommendation to anyone looking for accommodation in Byron.

I chose to stay at Cape Beach House having reviewed many positive reports on Trip Advisor. I was travelling on my own and it was a perfect spot to base myself for my one night in Byron Bay. The location provided great walking access into the town centre and to Clarke's Beach and onwards to the lighthouse. The bedroom and bathroom were beautifully presented and Katie was an incredibly welcoming host. Really enjoyed meeting other interesting guests over a delicious breakfast. Would certainly recommend to others and hope to return with my husband in the near future.

We first stayed at the Cape Beach House quite accidentally, whilst on a business trip. We were blown away by Katie and Marc and decided we would definately be back again.
We have been back three times since then, one visit was just an overnighter - all the way from New Zealand, that's how special we feel the place is.
The rooms are spotless and have everything you need for your visit. Breakfast is a great variety of fresh cereals, breads and fruit. Everything is delicious.
The defining factor for us is our hosts, particularly Katie. She is very warm and welcoming and goes the extra mile to make sure you have a good stay. She even provided wine glasses and beach towels for a romantic sunset on the beach. We will always stay here when we come to Byron.

Where to go?
After deciding on Byron Bay, We didn't want to hire a car so as to enjoy the BB more ... but if you had transport you could be tempted to visit the Buddha Palace for your R&R and massage; or reserve a meal at the Dish Restaurant (the Michelin star restaurant at Bangalow) ... yes there are lots to do! Instead, we walked the beautiful beach, indulged in the organic meals and drinks at The Balcony, The Beach, Cypress Tree plus a few others.

Where to stay?
I read a few reviews and was impressed with what was being said The Cape Beach House. It's a little bit of a walk to town (approx 10 min) but it's a distance away from the hustle and bustle of backpackers and has enough street lights to direct you back to your accommodation. What makes it worth staying at "The Cape" is Katie's hospitality from our arrival at 6pm on Friday (29 July) until our departure on Monday (1 August). Marc (her husband), Kelty (her "assistant) and a few others have been equally accommodating. They always had the answer or suggestions to make our holiday complete e.g. where to buy Byron Bay Cookies (near the BP station in the industrial area - around 5-10 mins drive), need-to-visit Lighthouse and lookout for the whales (2 hour walk for us, 45 minutes for Katie), restaurants to suit the occasion (e.g. great cocktails and Spanish tapas/paella at the Balcony) .

And Katie ... if you're reading this ... and if you're lucky you might meet her famous friends :)

Thank you once again for your personal touches to making our stay enjoyable!

We often stay at the Cape Beach House when we go out in Byron and don't want to drive home. In fact we stay here exclusively. Why? Because the hosts (Katie and her husband) make the stay perfect in every way and it is easy walking to town, the lighthouse, and Clarke's beach. The rooms are set out like a giant beach house and from the minute you arrive it feels like you are staying with friends. There is a large open kitchen area stocked full of coffee, teas, and sometimes in the afternoon snacks that Katie has baked herself. In the morning she prepares breakfast (included) featuring fresh fruit from the Byron region, homemade muesli (yummmm) and an assortment of toasts. You have the option to sit with the other guests or take the paper out in the sun and enjoy your breakfast in privacy.
The rooms (and we have stayed in most of them) are sufficient in size and come with most things you need (e.g. hair dryer, air con) and they feel (esp the ones outside) like you are at a friend's beach house for the weekend. The ambience is white, wooden, beachy.
The best part for those of you visiting Byron is that you can walk easily from your room to the beach (across the road) or to town for dinner or drinks. The light house walk is also just minutes away and yet it is quiet and peaceful!
If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Byron (even for one night) and you want value for money - this is itt!!

We were on our way up to the Bay and we called Katie, luckily there was a free room and we spent two great nights. It is so close to the beach, the shops and the pubs. Katie is great hostess and the The Beach House is so comfortable, airy and light. It just seems taylor made for a great time at Byron Bay.

We were almost ready to leave Byron Bay when we stumbled across The Cape Beach House. A lovely welcoming hostess, bright, clean and comfortable rooms, relaxing atmosphere and sensibly priced. A healthy and delicious continental breakfast included and shared in a sunny open kitchen and dining area with good company to swap travel stories.Only moments from the most spectacular beach and sunset on the coast - we were hooked. One night became three and we'll be back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: All rooms are good - but Room No.1 my pick.
