Barefoot at Broken Head
House in Broken Head, NSW
NO SCHOOLIES ENQUIRIES PLEASE
Situated just minutes south of Byron Bay, NSW, this sprawling five bedroom home on Broken Head Beach is a series of five buildings connected to each other by decks and walkways, with two stunning pools for either lap swimming (20m) or lounging around.
Two stunning pools - one 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 watch the kids play in the pool from the kitchen and dining table. Surrounded by deck chairs and large umbrellas.
Five air conditioned bedrooms. Each of the two main bedrooms has a king-size double bed, and room for two singles, and overall there are four bathrooms.
The home is beautifully furnished, with a plush 6m long lounge, deck chairs and a gorgeous daybed on the main bedroom's verandah.
You'll hear the surf at night from your bed, and the beach is a stone's throw over a track through the sand dunes to one of the world's top 100 rated right-hand point breaks with safe swimming at the protected southern point.

The chef's kitchen regularly turns out food for 70 at our wedding receptions, and is a joy to cook in. Espresso machine and all the tools await you.

Location - Broken Head
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 back 1000 years.
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.

We (a girl's getaway) stayed at Barefoot for four nights - at the end of our stay we wished we had stayed much longer.
Barefoot's accommodation is stunning - the house is beautifully designed and luxurious - the bedrooms and living areas are connected by walkways and thus guests can choose to have private time to chill out in beautifully appointed bedrooms or get together as a group in the dining room and/or large and comfortable lounge area which overlooks the garden from all sides. The garden is an oasis - it makes you feel like you are in a tropical getaway and you instantly feel the stress of everyday life dissolve. The house has a great kitchen and we chose to stay in on at our last night to cook and enjoy our surrounds. The pool is an additional treat - we used it every day.
The location is great - a three minute walk to stunning Broken Head beach. We took advantage of the free bikes available at the property and cycled on the beach and explored the rock pools. Brings back childhood memories. We did not have transport but it did not matter as there is a reliable taxi service.
Fran, the house manager, was wonderful - she was there to greet us with a warm smile and offered tips on where to eat. She was only a phone call away if we had any questions.
Tim the owner was also wonderful - friendly, professional and considerate.
We will be back - do yourself a favor and book at Barefoot - you will not be disappointed. It is truly a heavenly experience.

Wedding in Paradise
We had an amazing Wedding Week at Barefoot. The concept was a fantastic way to truly catch up with our 60 family wedding guests. Barefoot is an architectural master piece in an idyllic , almost secret location. Apart from falling in love with Byron Bay, we and our guests enjoyed fine food and service by Byron Bay Weddings, and the venue simply inspired a relaxing fun time for all. The central lounge pavilion with fold away French doors, transformed into a wonderful sprung dance floor, and our 60 long Conga line really gave it a chance to perform. We danced the Bridal Waltz in bare feet, and I gave a speech sitting on a lounge sofa arm in bare feet, and wearing Nimbin inspired pants, which felt more like a fireside chat. Barefoot hosted the time of our lives. We could only feel a sense of privilege, to rent this piece of paradise for our special day and week.

Just hosted an amazing long weekend for a special occasion birthday with friends and Barefoot could not have suited our needs more perfectly. Our guests were blown away by the great set up and how you instantly knew upon walking in that you were there to unwind and enjoy. Location - spectacular, weather - divine, pool area - excellent and Fran made everything easy so I felt like I was able to relax as well. Kick your shoes off at the gate and immerse yourself in this haven!

We've just enjoyed a fabulous week at Barefoot with family and friends. What a wonderful choice we made in booking this remarkable, stylish house. As beautiful as the photos on the website and Facebook page are, they really are only an indication of how amazing this beautifully presented house really is. The pavillion style of the house, all connected by timber walkways and surrounded by stunning gardens, means that all of our guests enjoyed their own ensuited space. The house is equipped with everything you could need and the location is perfect.
All of our dealings with Fran, the house manager (and Tim the owner) leading up to our holiday, were warm, friendly and professional. Fran in particular, made sure that we had everything that we needed to ensure a wonderful holiday - and more!
We could not recommend this property more highly! There really aren't enough superlatives!
We'll be back!
Thanks, thanks, thanks for a perfect holiday!
