Breakfast includes fresh breads and fruit from the nearby farmers market. An outdoor living room set amongst lush gardens and complete with heaters , blankets and candles is an... More

First of all: there is much to like about this guesthouse. Nicest of all is the lovely back garden and back verandah. Although it rained pretty much the whole time we were there, it was still pleasant to grab one of the rugs provided and to curl up on the seats out there. Very nice! The guesthouse was also clean,...

We stayed in the studio and it was gorgeous. The photos don't do the room justice. Comfy, cozy and a few minutes walk to town. A very enjoyable stay. The studio was self contained - own entrance, shower, bathroom, fridge, heating/cooling. Deck out the back is a relaxing place got a cuppa and to relax away from the crowds. Would... More

Walking proximity to all of Byrons retail and eating establishments. Clean and modern presentation of renovated home. Bed nice and shower good. Breakfast self-serve continental O.K. No personal reception - key provided by cleaner on arrival. Parking haphazard with no defined area except drive area. No shoes request for inside house not inticing. Price is reasonable for Bryon Bay.

Have stayed at Barbara's a number of times when Im working in Byron. I love staying here when I'm away, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are pleasant and clean. Always look forward to the complimentary sourdough in the morning to start the day. It's in a great location with a short walk to the beach and shops, but... More

Standing quietly in a wide, tree lined street a five minutes walk to the centre of Byron and the beach, this lovely guesthouse says when you arrive- 'Relax now. You're home' . The decor is easy, clean-lined beach casual chic, and there's a fab back deck area with a double swinging seat, and lush garden surrounds. All very well maintained.... More

Since our last visit to Barbaras, over a year ago, the friendly, welcoming owner has done beautiful renovations, making our stay even more comfortable. We were delighted. It shines with love and care. The space is now lighter, and even more delightful than before. Lovely garden, beautiful continental breakfast, fresh veg and herbs in the garden. Convenient to town, the... More

Barbara's is the perfect place to stay in Byron. The house is charming and in an excellent location, being a short flat walk to both the shops ( about 5 minutes) and the beach( about 8 minutes). The bedrooms are lovely with super comfortable beds and the verandah at the back is a great place to relax and enjoy the... More
