“Amazing Couples Paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Had such an amazing time in the Dragonflys Rest Room with my partner for our anniversary.
Simone was amazingly helpful from the moment I first enquired about staying at the Garden Burees. Our room was extremely romantic and clean. Deffinately a one of a kind experience with the beautiful outdoor bathroom, day bed and waterfall. Only a $6.50 cab ride into the heart of Byron to all of the cafes,bars and resturants but with this an amazing room like this we didnt want to leave to go anywhere. Relaxed with a bottle of champange and cheese platter on the day bed listening to the tranquil sounds of our waterfall.
Can't wait to come back here, it's deffinately where we will be heading again for a relaxing weekend. Thanks Simone!

Room Tip: Dragonflys Rest is perfect for couples.

It was a pleasure having you both stay. You both had the right idea of kicking back with your Champagne and Cheesplate and soak up the relaxed atmosphere that The Dragonfly's Rest exudes. I really look forward to welcoming you back to The Burees in the future. Thank you for your lovely review - Simone Phillips

Very beautiful and romantic places. I went to here on vacation with my boyfriend, the outdoor garden and bathtub makes quite relax and enjoy the time spent in this hotel. Location is also very good, went to the town center only five minutes and walk to the beach about ten minutes , Even so convient , around the hotel is very quiet and not too many tourists! The service is also quite good, what is missing only need to open up the phone, the owner will be personally delivered to the room, and free to let us borrow a left-luggage when we left that afternoon ! If we have the opportunity to visit here, we certainly will stay in this hotel again :)

This was our first time at the Garden Buree's and we could not fault a thing. The location is awesome, just far enough out of Byron to feel a little secluded but less than a 10 minute walk into town. The Brewery next door is handy for meals and a couple of drinks. The accommodation is just beautiful and feels so comfortable and homely, has everything you need and more!! Simone is a fantastic host, so warm and friendly - we will definitely be back! LOVED the outdoor shower and spa :)

Room Tip: Garden Buree with outdoor shower!!!

This was my second visit to the Garden Burees. I come up to Byron for Bluesfest and have stayed in some nice places in Byron, but this is truly my favorite. Every time I walk into this place I instantly feel relaxed and happy. The atmosphere is beautiful with the tropical garden setting complete with numerous friendly water dragons, and I love the laid back style of the environment. The decor is warm and inviting, and after travelling, it's nice to be greeted with champagne and great Byron Bay Coffee, not to mention a relaxing spa or nice hot, outdoor shower in the little private garden. Every home should have one! It's a fabulous location with full access to the Art's Factory precinct. If you are into music, the environment, cultural diversity, and rest and relaxation, you will love this place as it offers and supports all these things. You have the tranquility of the Garden Burees, and right next door you have the Day Spa, Cinema, Brewery, Buddah Bar, Backpackers with access to pool and facilities, and there is even a recording studio that offers fantastic rates for those who fancy laying down some tunes. The Buddah Bar has great music and runs open mic nights, and the Backpackers holds talent nights, music workshops and nature walks as well. We saw some fantastic artists from all over the globe while we were there, and we loved the fact that we could enjoy all the Art's Factory has to offer while being a stones throw from our lovely Garden Buree retreat. We could quite happily spend our time there, and yet Byron township and Main Beach is only a 10 minute walk away so it's great to have this fantastic space in such an accessible location. The staff are genuinely lovely and helpful, and I am very much looking forward to my next visit.

Great location, next to the brewery, walking distance to town. Very quiet location, comfortable bed and great spa bath. Staff were very friendly and champagne on arrival was nice. We were there for blues festival this year and it was so great to come home each night and relax in the buree. Waking up to sun flooding the bedroom through the trees and soaking in the great spa.

We made a return visit to the Garden Burees over Easter, staying in Dragonfly's Rest. The apartment has been renovated since our last stay, with improvements to soft furnishings, noise reduction and some tweaks in the amazing outdoor bathroom. This is a great place to stay. You can walk into the main Byron town centre and the Arts Factory/Buddha Bar is just next door. And the people that run the place couldn't be more helpful.

Room Tip: The two storey burees are great too. Plenty of choice, depending on how many are travelling. Dragonf...

We were blown away the moment we walked into our Buree. My newly wedded wife was in bliss, as was I. Location is brilliant. Very close to a pub, entertainment, and other wordly adventures with the backpackers in the same area, but seemingly in another country. The Water Dragons were entertaining, the outdoor shower brilliant and the spa was bloody great. We would love to go back!!! Thanks Simone!!

Room Tip: The Garden Buree is great for the romancers
