Best Relaxation Holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kookaburra Beach Cottage from Boxing Day 2015 to 2nd Jan 2016. We arrived to a welcome of fresh flowers, chocolates with a phone call to make sure that all was to our satisfaction. Fresh towels were laid out for us, the cottage was perfect for our Holiday. The view from the back deck when was wonderful with wallabies, owls and even a echidna in the bush. It even rained for a couple of days, which was great as we didnt leave the cottage. Overall this is a fantastic place to stay.

Such a lovely stay at Kookaburra Beach Cottage!

Kookaburra Beach Cottage is just so cute! Helene the owner is lovely and extremely helpful! When we got there we were blown away by the gorgeous cottage, Helene has thought of everything! From the amazing waterfall shower head and the shampoo for colour treated hair, to the ipod docking station and the colourful lights in the kitchen! It was raining while we were but it didn't even matter, we got cosy on the back deck with cups of tea and watched the wallabies and turkeys in the trees behind the house. It was amazing! And Tallow Beach is just a short stroll away. The cottage is about a ten minute drive out of town, but honestly it didn't even really matter, we liked that it was quieter. All in all it was a great trip, I highly recommend this place! I'll be back for sure!

Owner's Response: It was wonderful welcoming Whitney and her three girlfriends. I am so glad they enjoyed their stay. Kookaburra Beach Cottage was designed for couples and friends wanting to enjoy chilling out together in a serene natural environment, enjoying the best that Byron Shire has to offer especially the beach and the forest and the unique wildlife. Byron Town can be very busy especially at holiday season. Staying at Kookaburra Beach Cottage you can choose to join in or completely avoid the crowds. Thank you Whitney and friends, I loved your wonderful energy!
