This retreat is just a few minutes drive into the hinterland from Byron. We booked a villa- a large bedroom/ lounge space and lovely huge bathroom. The place is exactly as advertised online, very pretty and tranquil. The outdoor furniture could go with a clean and unfortunately the bath tub in our room was too slippery for me to use. Nevertheless the staff were lovely and the breakfasts beautifully cooked and delicious. The hot tubs had covers on which I couldn’t work out, then I decided it was a bit too cool to use the anyway. I’m sure the staff would have helped but it was after 4pm and that’s when they finish. Highly recommend for people needing time out from everything. Waking up to birds every morning was just what I needed.
Really enjoyed our stay here. Booked the couples Villa which is beautifully decorated and the bathroom is awesome. Great outdoor area with a swing seat and laid back chairs which was lovely but not very private as it’s overlooked by another room and shares a path with two rooms. The Villa is great but I just wish they’d spaced the rooms out a bit more. It stated the rooms would be serviced every two days but ours was done each day although towels weren’t changed and we ran out of toilet paper once. That said it was still very good and great value for the price! And yes, we would go back!
Byron Bay is a very busy town at times - packed restaurants, traffic queues - but is also very beautiful and staying at Cape Byron Retreat, a five minute drive from town, was a great way to experience the town without being overwhelmed by crowds. The grounds, rooms and living space were smart, stylish and well-maintained. Location was very quiet, peaceful, and I didn't cross paths with many others while staying there - the retreat was full, but the layout gives you lots of privacy if that's what you're seeking. We were in the pool room. The pool is shared, but I didn't see others using it while there - so it was like our own private pool! The outdoor hot tubs had great sunset views over rolling green hills.
What a wonderful place this is. We just loved listening to the different bird sounds and being visited by the wild peacocks. The views of the hinterland make for such a tranquil setting. We stayed in the self contained bungalow which we found well equipped. The staff are extremely helpful and polite and nothing seemed too much trouble. Would recommend this place if your looking for a place just a short distance from town and yet very peaceful.
What a find. So close to Byron (4 minutes) yet to peaceful, quiet and tranquil. Beautiful rooms and that breakfast! Great setting and wonderful hosts. So good that we’re going back next week and really looking forward to it.
