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.
