Apologies for the very late review, we have just decided to review all of the places we have been to so far together. We stayed in the Edge Villa for three nights in April 2012 for our 2 yr anniversary and absolutely loved our stay here, it was relaxing and peaceful. We ordered dinner on the first night which was an amazing sushi dish followed by a roast and a refreshing cocktail, great way to start the trip. As part of our stay / package, we also went hot air ballooning in Byron Bay which is definitely recommended, (this was with Byron Bay Ballooning - very professional and friendly).
The bedroom was upstairs and once you pulled the blinds back there was a magnificent view right from the bed. The location is picturesque overlooking the mountains and valleys and you can even see the ocean. We had massages and reiki done on the balcony which was also very relaxing. The place was around 10mins drive from town and at night can be a bit daunting as the GPS didn’t seem to pick up the location very well.
We went to a fantastic French restaurant while staying here which we highly recommend; La Table. The owners also own a sushi restaurant in town which we visited there during our stay which had really yummy sushi. We also visited Crystal Castle which was so beautiful and peaceful and had amazing Crystals throughout. We found the local village very friendly and in particular the lolly shop down there. Sammy the dog added character to Koonyum and would come over every morning to say good morning and sunbake on the chairs with us; we loved having him around so much so that we wanted to take him home with us!
