“Absolute serenity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We have stayed at these beautiful villas a number of times and are planning our next visit for Christmas with overseas family members. The service is well beyond our expectations from the warmest of highly competant, discreet staff. Looking forward so very much to enjoying the unique facilities, privacy and serenity again. A perfect place to chill out.

Room Tip: We have stayed in a numer of the villas. All have great aspect and ambience. If money is no object c...

The villas on Byron would be some of the best designed villas / rooms you could stay in. ($560-$660 per night) .its a 10 minute walk from town. Firstly, do not stay in a room on the main road, Saturday night customers leaving the brewery next door, are very loud and so are the cars racing away, at 2am !! On introduction to our room a polite young lady gave us limited instructions. The bio toilet, the entertainment system and the food rules should have all been explained, but they weren't .. On our first morning we rang for breakfast, told we need to order 24 hours in advance ! When we commented we weren't told this on arrival, we were told we should have read the website ! The Bio toilet we worked out. The entertainment system we worked out on day three. Any and all requests for food to late a checkout was a problem. It's a pity that a place with great villas is not back up by decent customer service. Will not be recommending to anyone. ( unless management changes or realises that customer service is essential for return business ). Local Byron people are the best. The taxi drivers, local shop staff are great. You must visit Byron, just don't stay here.

We spent two nights in a beautiful 2 bedroom villa with friends for a combined 50th birthday celebration. As other reviewers have said the villas are well appointed and very private. At first I wasn't too sure about the outdoor showers and eco toilets but was soon converted. We just loved it. We also visited the Byron markets on the Sunday and Bangalow for more shopping and dining options. Would love to return some day.

hey guys.. my hubby phil and i came here for our one year wedding anniversary 24th sept 2012 <3 from our first contact with Julie, i knew that this hoilday was going to be amazing. Julie without fail delivered everything that we wanted. from the beautiful breath taking candles/rose petals leading to bedroom the gorguz rose love heart and roses on bed, to the awesome yoga massage everything was breath taking. we both were so relaxed, and we had the best time ever. the photos dont do this villa justice, i believe the staff make this experience what it is, koz they make sure that you are happy with everything. our personal chef Brain was AMAZINGGGGGGGGG. his dishes were mouth watering and his polite bubbly friendly nature was so great. all the therapists that saw us, Tanya (our reiki and massager) our Yoga instructor (oh gosh forgot her name she was awesome) then Manu and her partner in crime for the last massges were so nice to our acupuncturist Phil. they were like as if we knew them as friends. so professional but yet ever so friendly. i highly recommand this villa for ur stay. i know my husband and i will be definitely coming back soon. we are so relaxed and our energy is all fresh and cleaned to get back to work. the Money is soooooooooooooooo worth it. it is so clean. and i love how the pool man comes all the time to make sure pool water is clean and stuff. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. THANK YOU STAFF FOR MAKING OUR TIME THE BEST <3 <3 <3
LOVE PHIL AND MICH <3

The Villas of Byron strike me as very unique, as they offer a level of luxury and privacy that is unparalleled in my travels. From the moment you step through the large doors you are in a different world, despite only being a few hundred meters from central Byron Bay.

The property is maintained to an incredibly high standard and is equipped with everything you need to hide from the world for a few days.

The pool and spa were excellent, affording us a great view of the stars while sipping champagne on a cool evening. With very tall perimeter fencing, no one can see into your space.

The villas are fitted with top notch audio visual facilities, which is great for piping your own tunes from your ipod or iphone. The kitchen was fitted out with premium cooking equipment, and all crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils are provided. A decent BBQ is also available outside.

There is a large supermarket within a 10 minute walk, and there's plenty of fridge and cupboard space to store everything you need.

The highlight for us was the outdoor shower, just outside the enormous bathroom. It was so refreshing to be able to shower outside in total privacy.

The staff were so pleasant to deal with before, during and after the stay. Upon booking you'll be provided with a list of 'extras' too, and some of the options are very romantic. I opted for the rose petals, and when we arrived there was a beautiful trail of rose petals from the front door to the four poster bed. Wow!

Room Tip: Try to ask for a villa at the rear of the property, where passing cars and people cannot be heard.

My partner and I came here for my birthday and it's been the best birthday ever. The villa is stunning, clean and so relaxing. The whole experience here is breath taking. The private pool & spa is lovely and warm not to mention the beautiful outdoor shower in the sun. I consider myself very lucky to have had the experience of staying here & it wasn't even my wedding or honeymoon (which would be perfect the those occasions). Highly recommend & worth paying that bit extra for comfort and quality.

Most spectacular place I have had the pleasure of staying at. A bit pricey but well worth it. Immaculate facilities and great staff. Ideal for a romantic getaway or just some time out from the day to day hustle.
