We stayed at the Four Winds for my 30th birthday - and it was the perfect getaway. To start with, the location is excellent. I've added some pictures of the view from our villa - villa #2. It's also well away from the hustle and bustle of Byron town centre - and yet it's only about a 5 minute drive. The surrounding towns are all easily accessible by main roads and highways. If you want a place to relax and enjoy this part of the world for what it truly is - I do highly recommend you give here a try. I remember getting so excited looking for it when we were driving around Byron - and trust me I was even more so when we found it's exact location! The views are exactly as advertised and are just simply stunning. Day and night, there was always something new and beautiful to appreciate.
On to the villa itself. It is huge - so much space for 2 people but it's open plan to an extent so it doesn't feel like you're miles away from each other. Very well designed. All of the rooms are gorgeous. Every thing is done to such a high specification - and with much care and attention. The bed is very big and very comfy - and plenty of extra pillows of course should you need them. The private outdoor shower and courtyard was so pretty - it was like having a little bit of forest in your bathroom. The kitchen is gorgeous. The marble and wood throughout is exquisite. The linen provided is wonderful - I could go on forever. What I loved especially is the thoughtful little details - as people have mentioned there is sparkling wine provided on arrival - but there's also lots of other little extras which I won't mention here - I'll keep them as a surprise for you :) By the way - the sparkling we had - we loved it so much we ended up buying a case of it!
Next onto the service. Jane is the property manager and she is fabulous. From the moment we booked, she was attentive and nothing was too hard. She helped us not only with directions to the Four Winds, but also with great ideas as to where we could stop on our way from the airport. Our hosts Rick and Helen were there to greet us when we did arrive, and were very friendly and helpful with their recommendations of where to eat and what to do. The top of this list, by the way, is the restaurant called Harvest in nearby Newrybar. We ended up going there every morning for a coffee! After that, we rarely saw them - they were available at all times if we did need them, but gave us the privacy you of course want when you're on holidays! It was a brilliant balance. You can also arrange (attention here boys!) a massage in-house - I had an hour and a half as a birthday treat and it was fabulous. I would strongly recommend, if the weather is good, to have yours outside if the weather is good - it definitely added to the experience.
To summarise, the views are spectacular, the service amazing and the value is well worth what you pay. Yes, it's not the cheapest accommodation you will find - but trust me it is worth every single cent of your money. If you want a relaxing, charming, natural and luxurious getaway - Four Winds Villas really is your perfect escape. Thank you to Jane, Rick, Helen and all of the team at Four Winds Villas for making our holiday truly spectacular. We hope to see you again soon.
