Rae's is in a truly breathtaking location at Watego's Beach. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway - a long weekend or a few days. It is close enough to Byron Bay for convenience but far enough to be more peaceful. The service is very good and very personal.
The room was enormous with a vast bathroom and gorgeous antique Asian furniture including a very comfy day bed.
Boogie boards, beach chairs, beach cricket, towels and surf boards are all ready to be taken to the beach...
Breakfast is fresh fruit, plunger coffee and breads and pastries. Eggs and other hot foods are available for an additional cost. The restaurant is good, the food was very good and the service excellent.
The criticisms are small. A full breakfast should be included when you are paying these kind of prices. The bathroom had an open window into the bedroom with a Venetian blind only. Fine if you have been together for 20 years but probably a little more confronting if it is your first weekend away together!!!
All in all it is a very lovely and luxurious place to spend a few days and the location can't be bettered.
