“Our perfect honeymoon”
Reviewed 28 July 2008

We found this place online a few years back when looking for something reasonably priced, basic but still comfortable, private, secluded, near the beach and quiet - it was absolutely perfect for what we wanted! The owner s had lots of nice touches such as board games, a CD player, mosquito coils, and teak chairs and a table on the balcony.

Of the units on offer, we chose to one closest to the river , which was a really cute octagonal hut on stilts with bathroom underneath, and bed, fridge, shelves and table-chairs upstairs. To get to our hut, there was a cute little jungle walk from the end of the driveway. We even convinced a pizza delivery guy to come out one rainy night!

It was a 10-minute walk to the beach, a good walk or cab ride into town for supplies, and private enough to enjoy our honeymoon in peace!

  • Liked — Privacy and a ute house on stilts overlooking the river
  • Disliked — Mosquitos

Reviewed 29 December 2007

The property appears to have originally been someone's home, with various alterations and additions and converted into four holiday units. I stayed for 4 nights in "the Studio" which is built in front of the property in the driveway next to the car-port. The location is close to the beach in a quiet area, and about a 25 minute walk into town along the beach (bring a torch). The Studio is comfortably furnished and clean. The entrance from the driveway takes you through the shower-room into the bedroom, and there is a sliding door from the bedroom onto the patio. The bathroom sink doubles as the kitchen sink. The property advertises a 2-minute walk to the local cafes and also free internet wi-fi access. However, be aware the local cafes are not open in the evenings - you need to go to town to eat, and the wi-fi signal is too far from the Studio to be of use.

  • Liked — Quiet location
  • Disliked — The setting of the studio in the driveway. Advertised wi-fi not really usable

Proprietor12, Manager at A Beach House At Byron, responded to this review, 18 October 2010
Byron township is a casual 15 minute walk down the beach or the road, the Tree House Cafe on the corner is open 360 days breakfast lunch and dinner, the WI FI reception is 100% in all rooms. The Studio has 50% of its main aspect in a tropical garden. Beats me some people are just set on being miserable no matter how fabulous their surroundings and no matter what great value they are getting.

Reviewed 6 December 2007

This hotel/retreat sounds lovely, we selected it based on the information and photos that they give on their website. We booked their Gazebo suite using their online system following email correspondence directly with them in which they confirmed the availability of the suite. We duly paid our deposit (50% - Aus$375) on the 18th Oct. All good so far...

Then a month later on 12th Nov I got an email from the hotel saying that there had been a problem with their online booking system and there was a double booking on our suite. We were offered either a refund or one of their other (not so nice) cabins. The other cabin wasn't suitable for us so on the 14th Nov I asked for a refund.

The refund took 22 days to arrive (came through this morning finally after chasing on my part and claims from the hotel that the refund had left their account on an earlier occasion when it now seems it didn't) and was not for the full amount - I have been left £13.95 out of pocket. Far from great.

Just wanted to warn folks that a deposit paid at A Beach House at Byron does not necessarily secure your accommodation :-(

Stayed December 2007
