The Cape Beach House
Ranked #3 of 34 Byron Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2014

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Cape Beach House on three occasions and without exception, it's one of the most wonderful places on Earth, and I'm a pretty tough critic. Hosts Katie and Marc have become like friends and go out of their way to ensure every single person who walks through the door feels at home, every time. Each simply yet beautifully appointed room is charming in its own right; light filled, quiet, spotlessly clean and all with big private bathrooms. The large decks at the front and back of the property are a perfect spot to start and finish every day in Byron Bay. Waking up to Katie's homemade muesli and muffins each morning never fails to put a smile on my face.
The location is ideal, just a 5 minute walk into town and a 10 minute stroll along the beach to Wategoes and the Pass. It's directly across the road from the Beach Cafe and around the corner from Top Shop (two of Byron's best food haunts).
Only those who have had the pleasure of staying at The Cape Beach House will ever know just how very special a place it is. It will keep me coming back to Byron year in, year out.

The Cape Beach House is a relaxing and idyllic oasis in Byron Bay. The lovely rooms are very clean, with lots of space, well-appointed bathrooms, and large, comfortable beds. The pool deck area is good for suntanning or lounging, and the semi-outdoor dining area has homey touches and interesting local artwork. It was nice to chat with the other guests over breakfast, which was quite delicious. Our gracious and friendly hostess, Katie, made sure that any dietary needs or other concerns were attended to promptly. The house is ideally situated, being a short walk to shopping and restaurants whilst remaining just outside of the main part of town. It is also practically right across the street from gorgeous Clarke's Beach and is also an ideal starting point for the memorable walk to the famous Cape Lighthouse. We would gladly stay here again on our next visit to Byron Bay.

I stayed 2 nights at the beach house with my girlfriend and we were both amazed at how lovely the cape beach house was, the room was fantastic with plenty of space and a lovely bathroom. We really enjoyed chatting to other guest at breakfast and loved the great food provided by Katie. It's a short stroll to town and and even shorter stroll to the beach. We both would love to stay here again when we get the chance.

My wife and I have just returned from a glorious four days staying at The Cape Beach House at Byron Bay. It was recommended to us by a close friend and was even better than we expected. From the time we arrived, we felt at home; our lovely hostess Katie could not have been more hospitable. The Cape has the best of a hotel with the warmth of staying in someone's home.
The breakfasts were lovely and we enjoyed meeting the other guests.
The location was perfect with a short stroll to beautiful Clarke's beach and an enjoyable walk to Byron's famous Cape Lighthouse. Just close enough to town for dinner but not too close to be effected by traffic. We are already planning our next trip back to Byron Bay.

My husband and I needed a long weekend away to remove the ravages of city life and this place was just what we needed.
The Cape Beach House is close to the beach and not far from local shopping/cafe spots.
My biggest worry in booking accommodation is cleanliness but that was not an issue here, the room was very clean and the ensuite was also spotless.
The bed was super big and comfy.
Helpful staff with ideas on places to see.
We would recommend this place for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay in Byron Bay.

What a great place to stay, Katie, our host was wonderful and certainly knows how to make you feel welcome and appreciated. Fantastic breakfasts, especially her variety of daily muffins.
One of the cleanest and tidiest places we have stayed and the locality was fantastic, walked everywhere.
We owned accommodation for 5 years so know what is involved on a day to day basis and Katie and Marc certainly came up trumps.
Looking forward to returning for another stay

Room Tip: All rooms looked to be good, but would suggest front room if it is available

I had booked a rather expensive property for 4 couples, to attend my younger son's wedding (which was great, thanks for asking). A late change in plans meant that my wife and I had to be in Byron one day sooner, so we had to find an overnight stay. We found Cape Beach House...

The room was tastefully furnished, and quiet, and comfortable, with an en suite; you don't need much more. The breakfast was just right: continental and friendly, with all the guests chatting like old friends. Katie is up there among the world's great hosts!

We left Byron wishing we'd booked Katie's place for the entire stay. The other property was totally different, and while it was elegant and beautiful and huge, it was also more than we needed.

Next time...
