This is where where the heart of Byron first meets the rainforest - the closest retreat-style getaway to town centre. Bliss at its best, 300 sqm of pavilions open up to stunning canopy views & birdsong. It’s the feeling of having a resort all to yourself with the space, & within an exclusive private, serene locale for true relaxation.
This new 5 bedroom residence ticks all the boxes for a Byron Bay escape: a stroll to the beach – uber cool café – restaurant – cocktail bar – all within a stone’s throw. Close to the action, yet away from the not-so-desirable Byron side: noisy tourist accom areas – traffic jams.
Refreshing sparkling tastings from our own family Kombucha brewery, produced right here in Byron Bay and stocked in the best cafés, will greet you on arrival – what better way to relax into your rejuvenating stay. Sip these whilst on the yoga mats, or from the round sofas on the expansive outdoor living terrace.
It is a private retreat residence most of the year, cleverly designed through the partnership of a tropical eco-architect, international retreat director and naturopath. The space captures the true relaxation the surrounding sanctuary offers. Our local network of wellness teachers, therapists and healthy caterers, can be booked on request, each bringing an extra level of luxe for your escape.
Wellness session equipment & yoga mats are joined by super-green eco footprints, such as solar hot water & recycling systems, and non-toxic cookware. Bed linen is au naturel - pure cotton and bamboo. You’ll leave with a forest’s worth of wellness once you’ve stayed here. Often spotted are koalas, echidnas, rainforest birds, water dragons, kangaroos.

“One of our recent groups had the pleasure of being hosted here. The quality of the accommodation and facilities was of a high standard and certainly met the needs of our international guests. Although this residence is only minutes from the heart of Byron Bay, it is surrounded by beautiful rainforest and other elements of true Australian nature, the feel and vibe is a perfect match for anyone looking for a wholesome rural holiday retreat. Thank you for this opportunity to see what the Byron area has to offer, we will certainly utilise this for other suitable groups in the future.”
