Longbourn is the best vacation rental we have had on our 4 month trip. I was so sad to leave and still find myself sneaking looks at it online!
We stayed for 8 days at the end of August, with our 3 kids and it was heaven. The house is like a grand established dame with a sassy modern interior. The website somehow doesn't quite do her justice and I was worried the house might be a bit too quirky. Perhaps its because there is so much to photograph, it's hard to follow and get a feel for the place and layout.
The rooms are all great, the beds are so comfortable which was a treat after travelling around Asia. The downstairs bedrooms do not have ensuites, but they all have double doors opening to the garden area and the bathroom and shower rooms are just down the hall - fine for family and close group of friends. Others might feel odd walking through the house in towels. Perfect for us.
The top floor of the main house is huge with a great sitting area, sofas, own shower room - my daughter was ecstatic. The top floor of the studio was a haven for my son with an enormous bathroom - shower area with 3 shower heads and body jets, 2 sinks and huge jet bath. All fittings are state of the art.
The kitchen is divine, fully equipped with anything you might need. In fact all equip though out the house is top quality...webber BBQ, Aga oven and hob, fischer paykel washing machine I think, great dryer, brilliant clothes horse, good hair dryers, great tv and stereo.....definitely not what you would expect in a rental. It is a wonderful home which is being lent out.
There is a stunning stone bath outside by the deck, the sauna and shower area are supreme. The garden is beautifully lit up at night and has numerous water features. There are decks and sofas and sun chairs and day beds...there is so much space for people to hang out and relax.
We rented bikes and it was a 5- 10 min cycle to the centre and beaches - everything in Byron is so close that you don't need to be plonked in the very centre. And The Top Shop is a 2 min walk from the door - perfect for incredible breakfasts and lunches. People come from all over to eat here and it was input doorstep.
I cannot recommend it highly enough.
