Situated just minutes south of Byron Bay, NSW, this sprawling five bedroom home on Broken Head Beach is a series of five pavilion-style buildings, connected to each other by decks and walkways. The landscaped gardens are finished off with a stunning pool area and day-beds.
The fully enclosed yard is perfect for your family dog with designated leash-free walking on the beach nearby. You'll hear the surf at night from your bed, and the beach is a stone's throw over a private track through the sand dunes.
The pool is in two levels - one with infinity edge is 30cm deep for toddlers and reclining adults, with reading bays cut into the steps. This spills down to a 20 metre lap pool. The deck around the pools is golden sandstone. You can see the kids play in the pool form the kitchen and dining table.
"Barefoot" feels like a private Balinese resort, but is nestled in an Australian rainforest with a track over the sand dunes to one of the world's top 100 rated right-hand point breaks with safe swimming at the protected southern point.
Each pavilion has its own air conditioning. There are four bathrooms with perfect privacy should four couples and children choose to occupy the home. Each of the two main bedrooms has a king-size double bed, and room for two singles.
The home is beautifully furnished, with a plush 6m long lounge, deck chairs and a gorgeous daybed on the main bedroom's verandah.
Three bikes are ready for the beautiful low tide cycle to the lighthouse, or take out one of the four surfboards which are from 5 foot to 8 foot long
Just 20 minutes from Ballina airport, or 55 minutes for the Gold Coast, this is Byron Shire living without the bustle.
NO SCHOOLIES WEEK BOOKINGS PLEASE
The stretch of beach to the immediate south of the Byron Bay Lighthouse ends at its south point, the tiny settlement of Broken Head, where there will only ever be 17 houses. From the beach you can only see one building, the Byron Bay Lighthouse. Ignore that and you could be transported to 1000 years ago.
Mostly untouched rainforest, Broken Head is a magical spot positioned only a few minutes from the heart of Byron Bay and boasts a beach with a legendary point break. The beach break is perfect for beginners, and local surf schools often choose to give their students their first wave in the family friendly shallows of the beach. Over the summer months the beach is patrolled by lifeguards.
Dolphins and whales are a common sight in the ocean out front. Two of the most deserted and beautiful beaches in the shire, Brays and Kings, are found by walking up Seven Mile Beach road and down tracks through the rainforest. The road begins right outside our front gate.

Amazing place to stay!
This was my first visit to Byron Bay and we took 4 couples up for my wife's 40th Birthday celebrations. The property was amazing! We had the most wonderful time, it was perfect for being able to spend time together and or retreat for some privacy. What a perfect place to stay.

This is a beautifully run house. The owner Tim was very responsive from the outset, and we were greeted on our arrival and shown around warmly by Fran the manager. From the list of local markets to do the week's shopping, to the well kept bikes and surfboards, to the classy open feel of the huge house, everything about Barefoot has an attention to detail that makes it a special experience.

My family and I and a party of up to 12 guests have just returned from Barefoot at Broken Head. Celebrations for my husbands fiftieth birthday flowed effortlessly from the pools to the lounges to the superb beach located a stone’s throw
from the private and luxurious property.
The well equipped kitchen made catering for our group easy, with abundant seating and dining options both inside or outside in the delightfully flood lit gardens.
Frances our housekeeper made us very welcome and was also happy to help with a last minute bedding configuration change. We are hoping to return for my 50th to show more of our friends the absolute delights of Barefoot at Broken Head.

Byron Bay Detox Retreats
We ran our exclusive and luxurious Byron Bay Detox Retreat here last month and the property was the perfect place for our guests to unwind and relax. The house offered each guest privacy with their own villa set in beautiful natural surrounds with private direct beach access. Barefoot at Broken Head lived up to all our expectations and we plan to run more retreats here at this exquisite property.

We visited this property after a hectic period of work and were looking for a great location to unwind. Our wishes were granted as this place offered privacy, natural beauty and luxury. After 12 nights here we felt relaxed, refreshed and revived. This property is great for both small and larger groups. If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing, comfortable part of the world then look no further, paradise awaits you.
