About the property

Jemima’s is a newly built two bedroom, fully self-contained guest house in the hinterland region behind Byron Bay.

Enjoy the privacy of your own space surrounded by the Asian-inspired gardens and water features.

We invite you to use the large pool and relaxing outdoor entertainment area which is located amongst rainforest approximately 50m walk from your door. Enjoy the peace and beauty of the rolling green hills as you wander the property or down the quiet, country lane.

Although private and peaceful, it is convenient to all that the North Coast has to offer. The popular Harvest Cafe & Bakery is a 2 minute drive away. Open for lunch and dinner daily, Harvest also offers an array of pastries and breads fresh from the oven on Saturday and Sunday. The Harvest Deli is well worth a visit. Gaia Retreat & Spa is just up the road and provides relaxing, rejuvenating treatments in lush, tropical surroundings. The historic village of Bangalow is 5 minutes away with its sophisticated selection of cafes and shops. Byron Bay with its beautiful beaches and unique lifestyle is a 15 minute drive via picturesque back roads.

With many years of local knowledge, we can provide you with suggested activities to do while you are here, or you can just relax and unwind.

About Margaret Arnot

My husband, Richard, and I built our house and the cottage, Jemima's, in 2014. Our house is next to the cottage but yet is quite private from it. When we have guests stay, they are able to keep completely to themselves if they wish but we are on hand if they need anything. We have lived in the area for many years and have a good knowledge of what there is to do and where things are in the area. We believe we have the best of both worlds - peace and quiet but close to everything that you could want in a holiday destination.

Margaret Arnot purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Margaret Arnot chose Newrybar

The property has open spaces and secluded spaces. We have 5 acres, much of it open space and some of it forested. The pool is located in a secluded area surrounded by rainforest. This is available to guests at all times. We are very close to the very popular Newrybar with its Harvest Deli & Restaurant and only 15 mins drive from spectacular beaches. We chose this area because of its proximity to the famous beaches of Byron Bay but away from the hustle and bustle.

What makes this cottage unique

We purchased the property so that we could build our own home and guest house in the style that we wanted and for our particular purposes. The property was a blank canvas when we bought it and we have been able to put our individual stamp on the property and have seen it develop over the past few years. We really enjoy sharing our unique property with our guests.

Fantastic all round

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little haven. Location was great with easy and short drive to Byron and surrounds. Possibly the most comfy bed we've ever slept in and the pool was a great added bonus. Will definitely be back, thank you!

Cottage was well set up for a couple. With another couple in the 2nd bedroom it would be too crowded. Particularly in the bathroom. Beds were comfortable with excellent bed linen. Facilities were great including the pool. Only drawback for us was the very close proximity of the host's house. Location was excellent

Fantastic cottage Byron Bay

What a 'gem' is Jemima's! Very comfortable, great location in the rolling hills around Byron Bay and lovely hosts. Very thoughtfully equipped for a peaceful, restful stay and lots to do in the surrounding area. Couldn't have wished for more.

We had a relaxing time before the wedding. The kids all loved the pool and we enjoyed the comforts - even though we were away from home. Thanks for being accomodating re 5th wheeler.
