Aloha Byron Bay
Reviewed 30 January 2014

We stayed here for a night and found it to be comfortable. The staff were lovely too.

But it's not exactly close to the beach or the action in Byron. Nor is it inexpensive. You're paying the same as a 5 star hotel room for what is essential a bunch of aluminium shacks plonked in suburbia - but I guess the price is driven by Byron's demand. They've done well to convert a corner block on a busy street into a demountable sanctuary, but it's not exactly serene. No amount of Buddha statues or sun parched bamboo can change the fact that it's an urban nook with a touch of mining camp chic.

I'd stay here again if there were no better options available.

We value our guests opinions so thank you for you feed back. Although I am unsure as to where Aluminium Shacks come into it as the only Aluminium on our property is the window surrounds. As you know we are located on Shirley street which is the main gateway to Byron Bay and yes we do classify as being in a residential area but we feel this is part of our charm as it means you can get away from the crazyness of the main strip once you have had enough. The Belongil beach is roughly 400 meters from our front gate so maybe you only visited the main beach which in that case yes it is a little further away. Again thank you for feedback.

We booked this villa for 4 adults and it was just perfect! 4 single beds, in 2 bedrooms, huge living room and open kitchen. Everything was modern and new, with more facilities than we even expected: washing machine, dryer, hair dryer (and even straightener), bath tub and shower, fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher and Lavazza coffee machine). We were very pleased to find even bread, milk, cereals, tea, orange juice and Lavazza pods at our arrival. Private pool and recreation area.
Communication went smooth and easy via email/phone, we had free wi fi and newspapers.
Location is also good, 10min walk from the city centre so it was perfect for our 3 nights stay.
Although it might be a bit expensive for a family (or two) stay, it was quite affordable in this case (4 adults).
One negative side I should mention is the closeness to the road, but the noise was still not excessive for me personally.

Thank you very much for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that we were more than what you had expected. We do try our best to have the little extras to make your stay a little easier and its nice to know it is appreciated. As for the road noise, We know is a bit of a bother but because of our location and the busyness of byron bay this cannot be helped. Thank you for your understanding. Hopefully we will see you again.

Nice new apartments on the outskirts of Byron bay. We stayed in a studio with king size bed. Air con and Modern tv with all the digital channels. Pool was clean. No bottle opener which was annoying. Breakfast was included but only consisted of juice, toast and muesli. New roller blinds were fitted but still not great at blocking out the light or any prowling eyes.

Just had an overnight stay at the villa, wish we could have stayed longer, love the villa.
Great bathroom, generous size. Comfy lounge in the villa and a bar fridge, tea and coffee was great, but the breakfast supplies in the pool house fantastic, no set time frame for breakfast is very convenient.
On a busy street, but the noise was not an issue being at the back in one of the villas.
Overall, would highly recommend staying here.

Great location, comfortable, clean and fashion. My husband and I stayed for one night, but was enough to fall in love with this place! We've been to Byron's hotels a couple of times, and this was the best place by far. Shane and Abigail were really nice and friendly! The furniture from Bali, free surf boards, pool, heated spa and continental breakfast were a great surprise!! 100% recommend!

Came down for an anniversary weekend getaway, met the owner who was absolutely fabulous. We would highly recommend staying here, it's well worth it. It would be awesome for a group to book all the villas as it has a pool as well as a heated spa within the grounds.

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Executive Villa for 4 nights in August.

On arrival we were met by the owner Shane, who is a great guy, and instantly made us feel at ease and welcome, telling us all we needed to know to maximise our stay. (The Balcony Bar, Lighthouse, Kayaking and Caves Beach Cafe the winners).

The Executive Villa is of 5-Star quality, with only the best furniture, furnishings and fittings.

Over 2 levels, the Villa is huge, with great bathrooms, large bedroom, an upstairs balcony (great for watching the odd thunderstorm), and a huge outdoor area on ground level with a great private pool for soaking in the sun and tranquility of the area.

The villas are a safe and peaceful 2 minute stroll to the beach, or 5 minutes into the main street where you'll find great bars, restaurants and shopping.

Abby, the caretaker who we met later in the stay, is exactly what you want from someone in that role. Caring, with a "nothing is too much trouble" attitude.

Can't do this place justice in so many words, but know I'll be back again.

Thank you Aloha Villas for a great holiday.
