About this listing
This is the perfect place for a quiet relaxing getaway located only a 5 min walk from the town centre and a scenic 10 min walk from the beautiful Byron Bay coastline, This fully self-contained, one bedroom cottage has everything you need.
Independent self contained cottage located in a quiet but central area of Byron Bay.
There is one bedroom, bathroom with shower & washing machine, kitchen and dining/living area. It is very specious and can accommodate up to four people. In the bedroom there is a kingsize bed which can be turned into two king single beds.
A daybed and a sofa bed are in the living area. Kitchen is fully equipped and Wifi is available.
There is an off road car parking space for one car.
Guests have their own private entrance to the cottage.
Interaction with Guests
As little or as much as they want.
5 minute walk to town centre and 10 minute walk to the beaches.
There is a lovely cafe/grocery shop two minutes away. A supermarket is 5 minutes away.
We have lovely neighbours around us so we request all our guests to respect them and keep the noise to a minimum level at all times.
From the cottage it is easy to walk into town. There is a bus service that can take you to towns around the area.
There are a number of car rental places and also a shop that rents bicycles.
Other Things to Note
The minute you walk through the private entrance and step foot onto the large verandah with its cliche 'small coastal town' hammock and surfboard racks you know you can leave all your city stresses behind you and relax.
Put your bags inside the large open plan living/dining area and get into the Byron spirit by taking a stroll through the organic veggie patch that the owners are happy for you to forage in and recharge from your travels.
At some point you will be greeted by a small army of four fluffy white dogs and a species confused cat that periodically come over to get their daily pats but are happy to keep their distance if you are not so animal inclined.
There are three ducks, also known as 'The Pest Control Team' patrolling the garden making your stay that much more comfortable by keeping the insects at bay.
The cottage is just close enough to town that you can enjoy a few more cheeky wines with dinner and not have to worry about driving home, and far enough away that you are ensured a restful, quiet night's sleep .
As mentioned before the cottage is fully self contained with a newly renovated bathroom, complete with organic bathroom products (it is Byron Bay after all), washing machine and fully functional kitchen if you prefer a quiet night in.
There is a lovely cafe/gourmet supermarket just a short stroll from the property for your early morning coffee needs.
The cottage is equipped with wifi, because what would a beach holiday be without the ability to upload selfies of you on aforementioned hammock, and for other less important things like work.
The yard is fully enclosed and arrangements can be made to get highchairs and cribs for little humans also.
The hosts have lived in the Byron shire for over 25 years and are happy to share all of their insider local knowledge with you.
No smoking on the property.
No drugs at all.
No extra guests staying overnight unless it is arranged with us.
Prices are for 2 people. Extra person is $40 per night.
Maximum of four people in the cottage.
No noise after 9 pm inside or outside.
Please confine all conversation, including mobile phone calls, to the house after 9pm.
About the Host, Luke
I am 69-years-old and very interested in health issues particularly as they relate to growing old.
I play touch rugby twice a week and spend a fair bit of time in our vegetable garden. Another interest is sustainable living.
I follow the South Sydney rugby in the NRL competition and this is my 50th year watching them.
We have four dogs (with some poodle in them) and a cat who thinks he's a dog. In addition we have three ducks who are used to control insects in our vegetable garden.
