We had a lovely time at Marilyn's and she was generous helping us get acquainted with the area. It was the perfect start to our holiday and we loved waking up to the birds singing around us and being so close to the beach!
I booked Sabi Beach House on behalf of my mum, who was visiting from the UK. Here are her words:
This was my first experience of AirB&B and I was a little nervous, however from the moment I arrived Maz made me feel extremely welcome.
Maz went above and beyond, ensuring that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay - be it tea & cake on the veranda, or a sociable morning spent at the local markets. This was nicely balanced with her absolute respect of space and privacy.
I am not the greatest sleeper but the tranquility of the area, plus an amazingly comfortable mattress, meant I had some of the best nights' sleep I have had for a long time!
I would not hesitate to book with Maz again and cannot recommend her, or Sabi Beach House, enough.
Best wishes, Sue
Peaceful stay in a fantastic area - new brighton beach is a beautiful long quiet beach in contrast to the hubbub of byron. Just round the corner from Brunswick heads - we enjoyed exploring the area from sabi beach house.
If you are looking for a quiet holiday, Marylin's place is just perfect. It's right next to a beautiful beach and surrounded by nature. Lively Byron Bay is only a 20min drive away. Marylin is a very welcoming host who took a lot of time to explain the area and what to do. The room was nice and clean with a separate entrance through the veranda. The bed has a very good mattress - we slept like babies. We really enjoyed the area around Byron Bay. A car is an absolute necessity though.
We couldn't have asked for a better first experience with AirBnB than the one we got with Marilyn. She was very warm and welcoming of us, she was incredibly hospitable and gave us a hand when we asked. We would definitely recommend staying with Marilyn, if you're looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to stay.
Marilyn is a fantastic host and her house is very comfortable and welcoming. New Brighton is a lovely area and it was nice to stay away from the business of Byron......many thanks Marilyn :)
Having never used airbnb before, I was a little worried about what to expect when desperately searching for accommodation for a wedding. Ii shouldn't have been concerned at all, Marilyn our host was kind enough to take us in at such short notice, made sure we knew where everything was, and welcomed us warmly. Unfortunately it was just a short stay but had we been afforded more time in New Brighton Marilyn (being a long term resident) would have given us as much info on the area as we could take! The home was close to the beach and town, perfect for our needs :) thank you Marilyn!
