Lovely get away

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Gecko Shed. A comfortable 10 minute drive into Byron Bay and 15-20 minute stroll to Tallow Beach. The Shed is next door to the owner's property but was a private and relatively secluded location. Good for a mini-break or shorter stay. Only a minor drawback, but you had to access the toilet through the shower but otherwise cannot fault our stay.

Tropical Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The Gecko Shed made for a magical weekend away. From the moment you enter this secluded property you can feel the calm and tranquility. Yet amazingly so handy and close to Byron. We loved the blend of rustic Byron with all the modern technology and conveniences. The internet is super quick. Out door dinning is great .. and the bed was extremely comfortable. I could go on but you should try it for yourself. It's a special place.

Private and a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The Gecko Shed is absolutely perfect! So idyllic and in a perfect location. Every day was relaxing and it was so easy to walk to the beach and the best little bakery. Tarek was a great host and we always felt that we had our privacy and a home away from home. Could not have asked for anything more for a relaxing getaway.

A peaceful paradise and so close to everything. Modern and romantic décor. Well stocked kitchenette. Peaceful nights sleep. Just great. It rained a bit while we were there so we just tucked up in bed and watched movies listening to the rain ... magic!!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a stylish and very comfortable place and catered perfectly for us. Stunning gardens and creek, space to spread out and plenty of kitchen equipment to dine in. Proximity to Byron and Beaches was perfect.
