Nightcap Cottage ...stunning view!!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

If you're looking for the perfect country escape, Nightcap Cottage may just be what you're looking for. Its location is very special, with one of the most gorgeous hinterland views in the area. Come and stay and you'll soon understand why many guests come back again & again.

This charming fully self-contained cottage sits at the very edge of the village of Eureka in the heart of Byron Bay's beautiful hinterland. Named for its view towards the wooded hills of Nightcap National Park, the cottage has a wide covered deck which will be a spot you won't want to leave!

The cottage is just the perfect size for a couple, but will sleep up to four: the main bedroom has a king bed, the second has a queen bed. (If you have very young children, please be aware that there are two flights of steps from the deck, neither of which has a gate). There is a comfy living room with TV, DVD with selection of DVDs for all ages & sound system. Large sliding glass doors open to a wide deck which wraps round two sides of the cottage, where a BBQ is provided for your al fresco meals. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living area, and heaters & electric blankets for the cooler months. (The bathroom has a shower).

There will be a complimentary fruit & goodies bowl to greet you on your arrival, also a supply of bread, milk, tea & coffee.



The tiny sleepy village of Eureka sits in the heart of the beautiful hinterland of Byron Bay. It enjoys a feeling of being far away from the rest of the world, yet it is only:

* a 5 minute drive to Federal or 8 minutes to Clunes with their wonderful general stores & bottle shops...perfect for grabbing last minute food essentials and supplies. Federal also has the well-loved Doma Cafe, open every day for breakfast or lunch, and a Mediterranean food van open 6 days. Clunes also has a great little cafe and a locally renowned butcher.

* a 10 min drive to the wonderful village of Bangalow with its abundance of great restaurants, cafes and shops

* a 25 min drive to the Byron Bay with all its diverse attractions

* a 30 minute drive from Lismore airport and 45 minutes drive from Coolangatta Airport

The wonderful natural & scenic attractions of the area are all within a short drive.

Places such as:

Minyon Falls (which you can see from the cottage)

Whian Whian State Forest

Rocky Creek Dam

Nightcap National Park

Booyong Nature Reserve (with its colony of flying foxes)

The Channon & Nimbin

From the Guest Book

"I really think this little cottage is a gem - made all the more special by your personal care."

"The views are beautiful from Nightcap Cottage and the accommodation was ideal for our 3 night stay. The owners really value their guests, as demonstrated through prompt and courteous communication and thoughtful touches in the cottage - such as flowers, local food treats and fresh fruit. We are hosts ourselves and know the importance of comfortable beds - we had great nights' sleep in a very comfy king bed with quality linen. Thanks Susie and Mick for sharing your delightful cottage and this beautiful area!"

Great location for visiting the Byron Hinterland. Accommodation was excellent and thank you to the hosts for the individual touches including breakfast supplies. It was just lovely to return after long walks (Minyon Falls; Byron Lighthouse walks as well as local hamlets) and just sit back and relax and enjoy the setting sun from the Nightcap Cottage balcony. We've added this one to our list of 'must return' holiday spots!

Perfect Quiet Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent our weekend at Night Cap for our 1 year anniversary. It was the perfect quiet home away from home we were looking for to just relax and take a step away from our everyday lives! The views were beautiful and sunsets amazing :)

Thanks so much for having us in your home!

Tempted to rate poorly just to keep this secret!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Nightcap Cottage. Suzi & Mick have made this place so comfortable and homely. They supply everything from good quality bedding and towels, to home made marmalade (stunning!), fresh baked bread, good quality coffee and teas, and a very well stocked kitchen. The decor is beautiful, and that view is really something. For the price this place is amazing value. But ... don't tell too many others about it otherwise it'll be booked out and we'll never get another look in! Thanks Suzi & Mick.
