About the property

Starr Cottage, walk to town or relax in the tropical garden and swimming pool

Starr Cottage is a charming 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a private swimming pool and tropical garden located close to Byron's beaches as well as the centre of town. All of Byron's major attractions are right at your doorstep from this centrally located house, yet you'll feel a million miles away from it all as you're tucked away from the main roads in quiet Shirley Lane.

Starr Cottage is a stylishly renovated featuring 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with all of the luxuries you'd expect for a hassle free holiday. The furnishings are beautifully appointed to match the unique style of Byron Bay. The kitchen is sparkling with granite benchtops and European appliances. The lounge room features a 50" Digital TV and DVD player, surrounded by a funky leather lounge suite. The parents retreat upstairs is very private with a TV as well as it's own ensuite. We offer complimentary Austar and WiiFii access at the property.

The private swimming pool in the garden is perfect for those warm sunny days, great for all the family.

All linen is provided for you when you stay at Starr Cottage, which has flexible bedding configurations depending on your requirements.

Downstairs are three double bedrooms

Bed 1: Queen bed

Bed 2: King Bed or split to Twin Beds

Bed 3 King Bed or split to Twin Beds

Bed 4: Queen Bed

Futon Sofa

The private retreat upstairs features a queen size bed, with a separate smaller annexe containing a double sofa bed if required.

The tropical gardens of Starr Cottage are surrounded by sandstone, with a grassy child friendly garden.

Starr Cottage sleeps up to 8 people in comfort (and 10 using the double sofa bed located in the sun lounge area off the master bedroom).

Please do contact us if you have a larger group as Starr Cottage has a sister property, Skye Lodge, located on the same location that sleeps 8 to 12 people. So combined, Starr Cottage and Skye Lodge can sleep 16 to 20 people comfortably - all within a private landscape within minutes from the centre of town.

About Jessica O'Rourke

My name is Jess and I am the property manager for a family run and owned Byron Holiday Homes. I have lived in Byron for 15 years and am so happy to welcome people to this beiuatiful corner of the world. I think Byron has everything anyone could want from a holiday - beautiful beaches, interesting people, great shopping, food and culture. My top 5 recommendations for your Byron visit:

1. Lighthouse Walk - spot the dolphins

2. Trip to local waterfalls/hole

3. Visit the Crystal Castle

4. Treehouse restaurant/Mex Club/Beach restaurant

5. Farmers Markets (a 70m walk from the houses)

6. (5 is not enough) Check out the vibrant street culture, buskers,

Great property for a weekend stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Byron at Starr Cottage. The location was super convenient for us with a wedding at Belongil Beach we avoided the "traffic" of Byron town! The house was comfortable for 4 couples and was well equipped in the kitchen etc. The house has a nice charm about it!

Perfect for a holiday with friends

  • 4 of 5

Great location, all bedrooms reasonably sized, great kitchen and entertaining area, loved the pool and aircon in the heat, the agent was a pleasure to deal with, perfect for a holiday with a group of friends. Really enjoyed our stay. The only negatives were the bed linen wasn't great and only two tea towels were provided (for 8 adults over 7 nights). We would have loved for a mid-week clean to be provided.

Owner's Response: Hi Jessica, We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and liked Starr Cottage. Thank you for your feedback re the tea towels and linen, we have increased the number of tea towels for long stay guests from now on. Currently we use a 3 sheet fold, hotel style linen which is always freshly washed and pressed but can get untidy during a week stay. We will now be offering mid stay cleans for guests who stay for a week or longer. We hope you return to holiday at Starr Cottage in the future. Jess
