Barbara's Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence

I've stayed at Barbara's twice and will definitely return. An oasis of calm only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Byron bay, Barbara's is beautifully maintained with great facilities; clean, comfortable and stylish. Nothing is too much trouble for hosts Ginny and Rick who maintain a friendly but very discreet presence. A perfect place to stay with or without a car. Love that day bed! Highly recommended

Room Tip: The studio is my first choice..completely self contained but don't be put off if its not availab...

We booked into this accommodation ''the Queen Studio' for two nights...On arriving at the property we parked up and took ourselves off round the back through the garden. There was a message board with our name booked against the accommodation for us and the keys were in the door.....The folks (Virginia and Rick) that own the property don't live on site, but that is not an issue......We made ourselves at home and unpacked, meeting Virginia an hour later.....access to the studio was through the communal kitchen, but there is access from the front verandah and an outside door to the side onto the drive. We didn't need a key for private access, but it was available if we had requested it........The room whilst not very wide runs the length of the house, so space is good.....The bedroom at the end has the bed and a storage rack.....The kitchen, dining, seating area consumes the middle section and at the other end is the ensuite bathroom, which has a very low bath./shower......it was very much of rustic appearance, but was ok.....We had access to the kitchen amenities even though we had a microwave, kettle,toaster in our own studio......It was good to do some cooking in the communal area to meet other guests....everyone was good, thoughtful and tidied up after themselves. A very clean accommodation. Out on the back verandah there is a decked area with a bench swing , herb gardens and an outside shower behind the bamboo fencing, for getting off the sand before entering the property....This property is in an excellent location, within walking distance to the main shopping area, cafes, etc....

Room Tip: Book the Queen Studio if you want personal privacey and space.....

Myself and a friend spent 4 nights here in January 2013 and have to say it was a delight staying here. Centrally located, clean and really friendly hosts, happy to go out of their way for you. Try and get the studio apartment as it's self contained. We would definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: Try and get the studio apartment.

Barbara's Guesthouse is without doubt one of the best we've stayed in while in Australia. Charming, clean and centrally located, we couldn't have asked for better. Special thanks to Rick and Virginia for looking after us so well when Cyclone Oswald rolled into town! See you again guys!

I have been coming to Byron for years and have stayed in various places from fancy, to average to camping. I thought this was a great place, very quaint, clean, quiet, accessible. But also, the fact that I could just book the place for one night as opposed to most places 'minimum 2 or 3 nights' .. Including camping grounds!! Plus, you have 24 hours to cancel if needed! I woul definately come here again. Very nice backyard and very homely!!

My husband & I stayed at Barbara's for a week over Christmas & what a beautiful guesthouse we found it to be. We visit Byron regularly & this guesthouse ticks all the boxes. The location is brilliant, there is no need for a car which is a treat on holidays, our room was spacious, comfortable, quiet & very clean. We were welcomed with homemade biscuits, fresh linen & flowers in our room. The garden & back deck lends itself to a relaxed afternoon after a day at the beach or evening bbq & freshly cut salad from the huge veggie garden.

Despite the busy hum of Byron & festive season we found Barbara's to be a hidden sanctuary.

Thanks to the owners for a lovely week - well will be back again.

I stayed at Barbara's over the Christmas and New Year period and could not think of a better place to stay. The owners were amazingly friendly and soooo helpful. For someone who hasn't spent much time in Byron it was like having your own personal information centre at your fingertips. The bedroom we stayed in was spacious and exceptionally clean. The bathroom was perfect however the outdoor hot shower was an experience in itself. Nothing like having a hot shower under the Byron Bay stars after a long day at the beach!!! Brilliant!!!
I actually found the rooms relatively quiet even though it was probably the busiest period of the year.
I could not recommend Barbara's more highly and I will certainly be returning.
Thanks for the great experience.
