Warning, there is no one on site to assist, should the need arise. It did for us and we just had to deal with it. The Gazebo is up a flight of stairs (bedroom/frig/deck are upstairs) Downstairs is the small toilet/shower. Once the sun goes down it is dangerous to try and navigate the stairs and while we were there the outside lighting on the stairs was not working. Very slippery when wet so go slowly. Several attempts to contact the number left for us on a card inside the room were unsuccessful. Since everything is done only by email, we tried emailing to no avail. In all fairness to this place, I must read the details more carefully next time. The place is a good distance from the town of Byron and the beach close by is not really swimable according to the locals. Much safer to walk 30 minutes to the roped off flagged area in Byron town. The Gazebo itself is "quaint" with the bare necessities. It would have been great to have had a BBQ even if it was one that all the people staying there could share. The make shift tea kettle sat hap-hazzardly upon the top of the microwave and that constituted the kitchen. It is about 2 feet from the bed. If you are fearful of BATS, look elsewhere. While we found them interesting as there were thousands of them that flew buy at dusk each night. The grounds are lovely, I felt like I was in Bali but all in all we were disappointed paying $200 a night and expected more. Byron itself is a fun place and we took a bus to the monthly market on Sunday that just happened to land on the day we were leaving. We attempted to contact the caretakers to see if we could leave our luggage but again, no response.
