About this listing
Charming and rustic-styled self-contained one bedroom apartment -- not a studio but a proper apartment with a good sized eat-in kitchen and a separate living room. The apartment is in the Lilli Pilli area of Byron town. It's light-filled and breezy and there is a shaded verandah for relaxing on. The apartment is attached to, but totally separate from, our house. We are on hand if you need anything but will give you all the privacy you want.
The apartment is spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bedroom has a king sized bed or can be configured for two singles sharing a room.
We have a large garden for your enjoyment filled with tall shade trees. Relax in our hammock chairs with a book or a drink.
The kitchen is well equipped if you want to self-cater. There is a small oven with two hotplates. There is also a rice cooker, toaster and kettle. We provide a stove-top espresso maker and a coffee plunger. Tea, coffee (real, not instant) and milk are provided and a few essential ingredients. There is also a barbeque for your exclusive use.
Our rates are in most cases better than the double rooms offered by some hostels in town but here you will find far more charm, character and privacy. And you have your own separate kitchen and living room.
We are on the outskirts of town. It is close enough to walk almost everywhere but far enough out of town to not be affected by the chaos that can make the centre of Byron a bit crazy in high season. There is a short walk along a bush track to Tallow Beach or a 20-25 min walk to the middle of town. Lilli Pilli is a quiet area of Byron town fringed by a nature reserve with koala habitat. We had a koala in the garden one night recently! Really!
There is a great little cafe on the corner just near our place, The Roadhouse. It's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is also a whiskey bar at night! You can walk to the Palace Cinema complex and local restaurants and bars. Also check out the Pighouse Flicks cushion cinema which has mostly recent release arthouse/independent films. They are in the Byron Bay Brewery/Buddha Bar complex which has a courtesy shuttle bus that goes from town out to the Brewery and back.
Two bikes are available for guests to use to get around town. Free unlimited WiFi. DVD player and TV.
Sheets and towels - bath and beach - are provided.
***PLEASE NOTE in Dec/Jan we have a minimum stay of 3 nights.
Infants stay free - we have a travel cot. Please remember if you are bringing small children that we have a dog. He is totally friendly but if your child doesn't like dogs then you should probably choose different accommodation.
The garden is a shared space - we have a very friendly dog and two children. The trampoline and hammock chairs are yours to share. You will find them unoccupied most of the time.
You can walk down to the groovy Roadhouse cafe/restaurant. It is a happening bar at night. Walk to Tallows Beach and the tea tree lakes - said to be very healing.
Other things to note
We can tell you about some of Byron's secret spots.
This is NOT a party house. We are in a quiet, family area of Byron and the apartment is adjacent to our home and we expect guests to come and enjoy the accommodation in the calm and relaxed manner that makes Byron Bay so special a place to visit.
Bikes are available for guests' use but you are liable for any theft or damage whilst using them. Locks and chains are provided.
Smoking is allowed on the verandah only.
We are a family of four - Byron locals - who love meeting people from all over and love showing off our beautiful part of the world. The apartment is next to our home and we are happy to leave you to do your own thing but are ready and willing to help advise you and make your stay memorable by providing some local knowledge and personal attention.
