Allawah Cottage Byron Bay
average rating of 5.0 based on 63 reviews

Perfect in every way. Can't recommend highly enough!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage set on a beautiful property is the ideal tranquil getaway. Accessed via a dirt road it is about a 10 minute drive from Byron Bay central. The hosts are exceptional leaving us eggs and chocolate on arrival while being approachable and accommodating throughout our stay. The property is superb set amongst several trees and adjacent to the owners' house with free range chickens wandering in the garden creating a great atmosphere. I never want to go to the same place twice but might make an exception this time around!

Words cannot describe how much we enjoyed our stay. Truly a home away from home. Instantly fell in love with the relaxing environment we drove into which was only a short drive from the city centre. Waking up to the sounds of the birds, cattle and chooks in the distant winds was magic! Cottage contained everything you required for a peaceful stay (i mean everything). The deck was our favourite spot of choice getting lost amongst the greenery! Inside was favoured with so much natural lighting with the abundance of fresh cool air that complimented the home decor even more so.

If your looking for a stay to really enjoy the stillness of Byron yet wanting to be close to the city centre this is the place to be. Kerry & Di were beautiful hosts! We literally couldnt wait to get back from each days adventures to just 'be' and soak in the gorgeous environment they had created! Very relaxed!

Cannot wait to come back and stay again. A beautiful place that screams warmth & home.

Highly Reccommended

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation run by organised and thoughtful hosts. The cottage is private, comfortable and very clean. Location is about 10 minutes drive from town - perfect for the beach yet secluded to feel as though there isn't anyone else around. Animals are friendly and good fun! Best spot is out on the deck. Would highly recommended this to couples/and or with young kids. Well done to Di the host for ensuring we had a great stay! Thanks again!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was 100% perfect. Every little detail was thought of. It was everything we look for in a great stay : A comfy bed, a fully equipped kitchen, great BBQ, a quiet peaceful environment. The hosts were also very friendly people and made us feel at home. The bonus was the free eggs, bread and treats + the bikes we rode just about every day into the town!

Thanks for a great stay, we highly recommend it!

Well..... you can't improve on perfection. We arrived at this lovely property on a cool, windy afternoon and were lulled off to sleep that night by the sound of the breeze sighing through the lush foliage surrounding the cottage. In the morning we awoke to bird calls, and the lowing of cattle in the distance......serenity! We were astounded that there could be such peace and seclusion within minutes from the busy hub of Byron. The cottage was light, airy and beautifully provisioned with everything that we could possibly need to ensure our comfort.....including some delicious little extras and a luxuriously comfortable bed. The attention to detail was impressive. For example little torches by the bed, lovely fluffy beach towels and an abundance of candles to set the mood. The addition of being provided with bikes and a kayak should we become energetic was an added bonus. We enjoyed watching the movements of the horses and donkey, and the antics of the free ranging chickens, one of which laid an egg on the balcony chair every other day. Any enquires were answered promptly, warmly and professionally by our hosts. We thoroughly and highly recommend this property.
