Where to go?
After deciding on Byron Bay, We didn't want to hire a car so as to enjoy the BB more ... but if you had transport you could be tempted to visit the Buddha Palace for your R&R and massage; or reserve a meal at the Dish Restaurant (the Michelin star restaurant at Bangalow) ... yes there are lots to do! Instead, we walked the beautiful beach, indulged in the organic meals and drinks at The Balcony, The Beach, Cypress Tree plus a few others.
Where to stay?
I read a few reviews and was impressed with what was being said The Cape Beach House. It's a little bit of a walk to town (approx 10 min) but it's a distance away from the hustle and bustle of backpackers and has enough street lights to direct you back to your accommodation. What makes it worth staying at "The Cape" is Katie's hospitality from our arrival at 6pm on Friday (29 July) until our departure on Monday (1 August). Marc (her husband), Kelty (her "assistant) and a few others have been equally accommodating. They always had the answer or suggestions to make our holiday complete e.g. where to buy Byron Bay Cookies (near the BP station in the industrial area - around 5-10 mins drive), need-to-visit Lighthouse and lookout for the whales (2 hour walk for us, 45 minutes for Katie), restaurants to suit the occasion (e.g. great cocktails and Spanish tapas/paella at the Balcony) .
And Katie ... if you're reading this ... and if you're lucky you might meet her famous friends :)
Thank you once again for your personal touches to making our stay enjoyable!
