We stayed in the Cottage - the two storie, two bedroom unit. Before arriving I expected A Beach House At Byron to be 'just another B&B' and their street at Belongil did not look too promising, so I was very pleasantly surprised when we got there. It's a cozy and quirky place that immediately felt like home. It's spacious and has a very down-to-earth nature-friendly feel to it with all the quality timber furnishing.
We'd go for a quick dip in the ocean every morning - the beach is merely a stone throw away from the place. And in the evening we'd sit on the balcony or on the jetty, watching the sunset with a glass of wine - perfect!
I was even happy with the rainy days cause then we could stay in, sleep in, watch tv and eat home cooked food. Yes, the kitchen was another positive part of the Cottage - fully equipped with certain little extra utensils that we don't even have at home. You do have to come prepared and bring your own food, but then again there's a cool café right across the street for the lazy ones where they make great pizza & salads (and good coffee in the morning).
Their garden is green and lush as advertised, so that it felt like we're in a quiet bush cottage and yet the Byron Bay shopping-dining and live music scene is just a stroll away (make sure you walk along the beach when going into town and that you visit the local farmer's market!)
This place was definitely the gem that made our stay in Byron feel special and uplifting. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it warmly. I loved the Cottage for its homy feel (it felt almost like having a house all to ourselves) but I wouldn't mind staying at the Gazebo the next time for a more exotic experience.
