  • I could not recommend Roundhill House more! It is a beautiful, spacious home. The furniture is quirky and the views are spectacular - high up with the birds and trees. It is very serene and really felt like we were on a holiday away from busy Sydney.
    The beds are comfortable and the showers are lovely! The kitchen was good too. All the essentials were also provided by Jenny.
    Jenny was the best! On arrival she spent time showing us around the house and left us maps and pamphlets, bus timetables, ect. Jenny drove us to the shopping centre and waited for us whilst we bought groceries and even drove us home. The nearest store is roughly a 15-20minute walk. Jenny really made us feel welcome and was incredibly personable. She even offered to lend me her gum boots which i borrowed for the Splendour Festival. Jenny also organised a driver for us - from Ocean Shores to Coolangatta Airport, Gold Coast.
    Jenny went above and beyond for us and we could not be more happy. Harry, the gardener/family friend who lives on the lower level of the house was also nice (we didn't see him much).

    My criticism would be that there were no locks or keys for the house. It feels like a safe place and perhaps they aren't needed in this area, however it would be a good option as it was a little worrying at times.

    I will definitely spread the word about Roundhill House and Jenny's fantastic hospitality!

About
I have lived in Byron Shire for 25 years & feel that I have a good perspective of its beautiful (website hidden) partner is a musician & plays locally as well as internationally. Our children have grown up in the area but are now either travelling , studying or working in the city. When im not working I love sitting on the balcony reading & taking in the fresh sea breezes or pottering in the garden with our small dog Piccolo. We even have a couple of chooks ( Thelma & Louise ) . Our family are all avid travellers so our house is full of paintings & oddities we have collected over the years ... we love sharing ours & our neighbours spaces The Perch , Rubys Cottage or Binnalong ( all Byron hinterland) with our friends and other travellers. The 2 apartments I manage "Aquabyron "& "Angelasvilla "are holiday units in Byron Bay . They are totally self contained & both within 5 min walk to downtown Byron or 10 minute walk to main beach . These are all available on airbnb.
