Small boutique motel. Location right opposite the beach on a lovely quiet street. Loved the décor, rooms beautifully done. Owner very helpful. Within walking distance to quaint village where there is a couple of excellent restaurants and a hotel for meals

On arrival there is a beautiful Thai inspired garden, through which you navigate a stone pathway to reception, where Suise the owner, will make you feel welcomed and at home. My room (6) was lovely, with a Thai / Indo feel and had a few small personalised touches. The room had... More

The studio room was spacious, clean, quiet and just unexpected for the price. A gorgeous comfortable king size bed with modern linen. The motel manager was pleasant and helpful. I would absolutely return again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night in an economy suite. It was a little small but functional and homely comfortable.

Falling asleep with the far sound of the wave-breaking ocean was very nice in opposite to the noisy highway-motels. Recommendable!

A very comfortable and relaxing stay. Hosts were eager to assist with all our needs and requirements. Motel is situated in a perfect position for beach and is just far enough away from the main area of Byron.

comfortable, clean, Indo inspired room. Loveliest owners and easy check in and out. About 10 minute drive from centre of Byron but their are small necessity shops and a café nearby. Beach straight across the road...good for surfing. Not sure if they had WIFI.
