About the property

Are you looking for a tranquil spot to enjoy a short break from everyday life? Then look no further! This is the perfect rustic retreat for a couple or a single traveller, situated in the heart of Byron's glorious hinterland.

Alfie's is a delightful one bedroom cottage set in a pretty spot down a leafy lane in Coorabell. Set on a 10 acre property well away from the main house, it is peaceful and private and enjoys a lovely view over the garden to the tree-studded valley beyond.

Coorabell is a wonderfully convenient location for your hinterland break. All that this special area has to offer is within a short delightful village of Bangalow; Byron Bay with its fabulous beaches, shops & restaurants; Mullumbimby with its rural-town feel and growing number of fantastic eateries and eclectic shops; great country cafes in idyllic locations; farmers' markets; antique shops and list goes on!

Sleep in comfort in your king-size bed and wake up to the sound of the birds.

Enjoy a glass of wine watching a beautiful sunset from your private deck.

Spend lazy days meandering through winding country lanes taking in breathtaking views and stopping for coffee or lunch at a hidden-away cafe.

Snuggle up on the comfy sofa and enjoy listening to music or watching a simply gazing out at the view.

There is a wonderful range of dining options within a 10 minute drive, or if you prefer to stock up on great produce from one of the local farmers' markets and eat in, Alfie's is equipped with a small kitchenette* and a BBQ.

There will be a welcoming fruit and goodies bowl to greet you, and some pantry essentials are provided.

Your well-behaved small canine companion is welcome! (Conditions apply).

*The kitchenette contains: kettle, toaster, microwave, rice cooker and plug-in double electric plates.

We request a minimum 2 night stay, 5 nights during peak periods.


"Looking for a pet friendly retreat in the Byron Bay hinterland I found Alfie's. What a top little cottage this is. Tucked away behind the owners home but completely private with a wonderful lawn and tree fringed perimeter this was the perfect place for me to replenish a weary soul! Half way between Byron Bay and Bangalow as well as the other lovely hinterland towns I really enjoyed waking each morning to the sound of birds and the rustle of the trees. The accommodation I could not fault. Everything was absolutely spotlessly clean and Susie has thought of every small thing you may need as a traveller. The most comfortable bed ever. Susie and Mick are the kindest couple - even bringing me cake on my last evening! They made my dogs feel very welcome and we loved the visits from Gus and Maisie! There was lots of room to spread out and relax with good information on things to do in the area. I will return in a heartbeat."

"Thanks for a beautiful and very hospitable stay. Loved Alfie's - the serenity, comfort and welcome."

"What a wonderful hideaway. The cottage was delightful, the attention to detail and the welcoming supplies made it absolutely charming. Our hosts could not have done more to make us feel at home. We will be back now that we have found you. Thank you so much for a fabulous stay."

"This is a gorgeous place to stay. It was lovely to wake up to the birds and the cows and to have a walk around the garden and enjoy the peace."

"I've had the most peaceful, wonderful, nurturing stay."

"Finding Alfie's was for us a beautiful accident, every day here was a joy."

"Thank you for a wonderful little stay at Alfie's. It was absolutely perfect - the space, the surrounds and the beautiful eye for detail."

"Alfie's was everything we'd hoped for and more. The beautiful setting away from (but within easy reach of!) Byron & surroundings, the immediate shoulder decompression you feel upon setting foot upon the deck, the opportunity to unplug from everyday life and reconnect with each other...We've already started planning our inevitable return visit."

"Wow! Such a beautiful home away from home. A hidden oasis and perfect spot to unwind. An exquisite setting to kick back and take it slow."

"Simple & stylish: loved the cottage.Calm green surroundings a joy."

"Leaving refreshed with warm memories of a very idyllic holiday surrounded by birdsong & lush vegetation. Your cottage is delightful, the bed super comfy and we so enjoyed all the treats you left for us."

country escape

  • 4 of 5

This was just what we were after, escaping from the world for a weekend.It was so peaceful, comfy bed and couch. The weekend began well when we entered to classical music, a spotless interior and home cooked bread!

Very Quiet Weekend

  • 5 of 5

After a brief hiccup in trying to find the turn off to the property we were very pleasantly surprised at the lovely setting and its very quiet location. The hosts are very welcoming and the little touches such as a freshly baked loaf of bread and homemade marmalade just topped things off. There is nothing at Coorabell but lovely scenery but you are only 10 to 15 mins drive to Bangalow and a short drive to Byron Bay.

Comfy cottage in the Coorabell hills

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Alfie's cottage was perfect for all the right reasons. Charming hostess Susie met me at the door along with gorgeous pooches Gus & Maisie, inside was super cosy and comfy but best of all the freshly baked loaf of bread, homemade jam and other goodies really said welcome . Close to Bangalow & Byron made my short visit super easy, thank you so much!

I will miss this play a lot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved Alfie's cottage. If we didn't live so far we would have made it a new tradition. My dogs were so happy roaming and exploring. The cottage was clean, full of character and had everything we needed. I have been to many holiday homes but didn't feel so magical like Alfie's. Thank you Susie and Mick. Created lots of happy memories. All the best till next time.

Peace and quiet in a beautiful setting.

We didn't want to leave! Close enough to the action of Byron, far away enough for serenity and well needed rest.

Just a really lovely piece of paradise!
