Beautiful relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hi Leonard and Cathy,

We had a beautiful weekend away at the Akoonah studio. It was exactly what we needed, Cathy and Leonard's property was so surreal. We thoroughly enjoyed the natural surroundings and wildlife, it was absolutely peaceful. Our dogs had a ball, they thought they were rainforest royalty at Akoonah. Very refreshing to have a getaway where our furbabies are just as welcome as we are. Perfect holiday for the husband and I and our two furbabies.

Beautiful location and pet friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely (too short) break in the Byron Bay Hinterland with our Rotty "Lucy Lou". We had a great time exploring nearby Bangalow, Newybar and Byron, but it was lovely to come back and relax in the cottage, which was beautiful in its simplicity. We particularly enjoyed the hammock on the deck and all the bird calls. It was great to be able to stay in such a lovely location, and best of all pet friendly. Lucy enjoyed her walks on the property and the lovely beaches close by (Belongil). The owners were welcoming, but also just left you to it to enjoy.

Perfect paradise for pooches (and people!)

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in the studio with my two small dogs.

The studio is very clean, very comfortable, and has everything you could need for a comfortable stay. There are no odours or evidence of dogs staying there!

It is lovely to hear all the frogs and birds, just surrounded by nature.

It is also a TRUE dog friendly place to stay! A pooper scooper, dog bowl, pet linen, and dog treats are provided. There is a secure deck (although a chihuahua and other very very small dogs would be able to get out). The best part though is that you are actually allowed to leave your dogs alone in the studio while you head out shopping/exploring. It was fantastic to be able to do that, and I doubt anywhere else would ever let you do that.

Location is good - just a 10-15 min drive away from the hustle, bustle, and crowds of Byron.

There is a fantastic dog beach close by (Belongil beach I think it was called). My dogs had an absolute ball! To get to the dog beach -as you drive into Byron you will eventually see a large service station on the right (think it's a BP) and you turn left there. 10 min drive at most. If you just want to exercise your dogs at the accommodation itself, there is a little rainforest walk or you can walk to the top of the driveway and turn left for a nice walk in the countryside.

I was not able to get my Optus phone reception at the property, but that didn't bother me. If you really need it coverage returns at the top of the driveway.

This was a fantastic place to stay. I will state the tiny negatives, but only to be informative and not to complain. The little freezer wouldn't keep my food frozen. The gas that the hot water and heater runs on must of been running very low as it ran out after my first night. However, to fix that all I had to do was call the hosts and it would have been rectified immediately as advised, it was just my own choice not to as I'm lazy and I wasn't that bothered by it. I also recommend bringing your own pillow if you don't like the fancy neck support ones.

I would recommend this property to anyone seeking a quiet getaway, even if you don't have a dog, but especially if you do!

Owner's Response: Hi Katrina, Thanks for taking so much time and effort to review us. Being in a rural area, we are on bottled gas here, we have to wait until the gas is out completely and then guests normally inform us and we switch the tanks over to the full ones. If we don't know about it then we can't switch over. Sorry that you had no hot water. The Optus network does not have a wide coverage in the country, so sorry nothing we can do about that. As regards to keeping big freezer compartments, the property runs on solar power and as most guests prefer to eat out or take away while here for short stays, we found it wasteful and unnecessary to have large fridge/freezer units. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us and so glad you enjoyed your stay.
