Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks for lovely relaxing stay Comfortable and lovingly decorated cottage in gorgeous quiet garden setting. We took advantage of bike-path to town and lovely bush walk to nearby Tallows Beach. Cafe nearby is super convenient for early morning coffee. Garden is shady and tropical and daybed on verandah is perfect location for a cool afternoon nap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable home We loved Carinya! We felt greatly at home in the house which has a really great vibe. It was very cosy and it could have been our own house; the way it made us feel. It was the perfect place to be. It's 5 minutes by car or 20 minutes by bike to the centre of Byron Bay. It was a quiet neighborhood with lots of native birds and other animals around. You can walk to the cosy Roadhouse restaurant and bar. It's close to Tallows beach where we went for great runs. The washing machine and dryer were very handy as well as the big fridge with big freezer. The property is well looked after with lovely furniture and beautiful gardens. There's even a little picknic table at the back with huge gas BBQ! There were lots of extra little things like the blender and a DVD player with lots of DVDs to watch that made our stay so special. There were a lot of great books to read too. There was some wood for the wood stove which was great. The queen size beds were very comfortable which was fantastic because one of us has a whiplash and can't always sleep well on beds other than our own. The house is clearly loved and well maintained by the owners. We were sad we had to leave after 3 weeks! Our kids (4 and 6) loved the house too.
