Excellent Proporty

  • 5 of 5

We have seen many holiday homes in the world, but this fantastic holiday home, was one of the best, in which we unfortunately only spent two wonderful days. Thank you again Jonathan and his lovely wife who received us warmly and for the great hospitality during our stay. Delicious was the homemade honey, which we received on arrival. The house was very clean and exclusively equipped. The house and the lovingly landscaped garden in the Balinese style has us very excited. The proximity to the beautiful Byron Bay we found very beneficial. The price / performance ratio is absolutely justified. We will gladly recommend the house. Thanks again for the wonderful time with you and see you soon again. Greetings Michael, Conny and Christina from Hof, Germany.

Sanctuary in a sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic four nights stay at Sanctuary Cottage. The peace and tranquility of this beautiful cottage is to be experienced to be believed. It has everything you need for a lovely relaxing stay, it was lovely to wander the garden and hear the bird sounds while sat on the deck. The bed was extremely comfortable and luxurious, the kitchen and bathroom has everything you need to make your stay at the cottage complete. Jonathon and Susie were the perfect hosts and only too pleased

to help make your stay a pleasurable one.

Relax, relax, relax!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed in the cottage; really well appointed with all the mod cons but still felt simple & not overdone. We spent most almost all of the weekend on the deck which was private and comfortable, with gorgeous garden and trees to look upon. Jonathan was very gracious to arrange for clothes left in the cupboard to be mailed back! Thank you!!

Lovely spot and lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay. Beautiful gardens, relaxing doing yoga on the deck, lounging in the day bed. Really peaceful and relaxing. Great hosts - they even brought us fresh eggs and honey from the garden! You are about 15mins from Brunswick Heads so consider buying what you need in advance. A couple of minor improvements would be to: a) have a recycling and compost bin; b) a few board games or magazines for wet weather; and c) the gas stove wasn't working brilliantly for us.
