“We had a lovely stay at Richards house. The back of the property has a beautiful view of the lake. We used the pool several times and the lovely sitting areas around it. We walked to Tallow beach but used the car the rest of the time for the main Byron town. Had a meal in the restaurant round the corner. Good pizza. Found Byron quite busy so it was lovely to return to a peaceful house at the end of the day!”
“We loved sitting on the verandah of Richard's home in the evenings watching the birds and wildlife in the lily pond, and exploring the national park just across the road. The pool and barbq in the resort were rarely used by others during our stay, and we enjoyed relaxing there. It was an easy walk into the heart of Byron Bay, and Richard gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations. He was a welcoming host, made himself available for any queries, and the swap arrangements went very smoothly. Thank you Richard for an enjoyable stay and the opportunity for us to enjoy the attractions of Byron Bay and surrounding areas. Philippa ”
“We were very happy with Richard's place! It was perfect for what we needed and the location was great, just a few minutes from all the action but in a quiet area away from the noise. It was close to the beach and lighthouse as well. The apartment itself was great; the master bedroom had a nice renovated ensuite and the second bedroom two twin beds for my kids. Richard even supplied games and books for them which they loved. There was AC in the lounge and kitchen and master which helped keep things cool if needed although we only needed it once. The surrounding gardens feel like you are in Bali and the pool area was really nice for a swim. Richard was great at communicating and even offered to pick us up at the airport. He was very helpful showing us everything and had great suggestions of things to do. Thanks so much, Richard, and we hope to see you again! ”
“We very much enjoyed our week in this lovely property. Best part was the wild life right on our doorstep and we spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony watching. The house was clean, and we had everything we needed, and more. Richard is an excellent host, from communication while arranging the stay, meeting us for access, giving us local advice and always being contactable. It was a bit further from town and restaurants than we expected, but we were very happy to spend extra time in this special place. Thanks Richard for everything - might see you again some day.”
“Un logement au calme dans un environnement exotique très sympathique. Présence d’un kangourou devant notre jardin au coucher du soleil ! La maison de Richard est spacieuse et dans un état impeccable. Le confort a été optimal pour notre famille de 5. Des rangements étaient prévues pour nos affaires. Sans oublier une piscine collective très sympathique avec très peu de monde que vous pouvez utiliser jusqu’à 20 heures après votre journée de plage. La maison est situé à 25-30 minutes à pied du centre-ville : Une petite balade qui se fait très facilement en suivant la piste cyclable. Richard avait prévu une attention particulière très appréciable pour notre petit déjeuner d’arrivée. Richard a été un hôte super sympa présent pour notre arrivée et notre départ. Bref un accueil sans faille très professionnel. Enfin soulignons la présence d’un café très sympathique à 100 mètres de la maison. ”
“Fantastic week spent in Richard’s comfortable home. Great location with a beautiful tranquil outlook at the rear with the added benefit of the swimming pool. We hope to be back soon!”
“Quiet peaceful great holiday getaway. Great to be away from the hustle bustle but close enough to access when desired. The pool onsite was the best . Clean and comfortable to spend the day hanging out in the sun. Would definitely go back. Thx Richard ”
“Had a fabulous week at Richard's place. Very comfortable and spacious and all I could need. Richard was a very welcoming host. The house is actually bigger than appears on the photos and the use of the garage was especially welcome. Many thanks!”
“We had a wonderful short break in Byron Bay. Richard is a charming and thoughtful host and the house had absolutely everything we needed. The kids enjoyed the pool and made friends with Leonard the local lizard. Highly recommended!”
“An ideal home stay! Richard's house is so cozy and quiet, in its own small community by a little lake, surrounded by palm trees and birds. At the same time it's only 20 min or so on foot to the centre of town with its gorgeous beaches. An ideal location. And Richard was such a kind and caring host, he provided initial food in the fridge and even insisted on picking me up from the airport! Thanks again! A perfect stay.”
“We had a wonderful stay at Richard's home very close to the centre of Byron Bay. It was perfect for us, every morning we took a short walk (5-10mins) through the national park and swam at Byron's stunning Tallow Beach, from there walked into town for breakfast. Richard was a wonderful generous host, making sure that we had everything that we needed at his home, and also gave us suggestions of things to do and see in the area. Great place to stay, already thinking about going our return!”
“We had a wonderful stay at Richard's home. He was a fantastic host and even bought some toys over for our 2 year old (which she loved) whilst we were there. The location of the house is fabulous, the beach and town are both within walking distance, however, you are far enough away from the busy parts of Byron. We look forward to coming back! ”
“Great place in Byron Bay to stay. Close to the beach & town. Richard was very helpful & had a fab house & left us everything that you could possibly need. Plus a beautiful swimming pool!! Hope to come & stay again! ”
“Richard's house is in a wonderful position in one of the best tourist spots in Australia. A very comfortable and well equipped house with excellent facilites such as a nearby swimming pool, beach and local village 10 mins walking distance. I could not recommend this swap highly enough and Richard does his utmost to make you welcome - lucky people who get the chance to stay here!”
“Richards house is well equipped and comfortable for a holiday stay in the beautiful town of Byron bay. Richard was very easy to deal with and a welcoming host. The Roadhouse cafe next door is a foodies delight, terrific menu, terrific ambiance, and great for morning coffee. Tallows beach is very close for long beach walks, and the holiday parks pool is a very pleasant setting. You really do need a car to make the most of the town and the hinterland, the walk to town is probably too long for regular commutes and to make the most of all the wonderful restaurants, cafes, pubs, music, brewery and lounge cinema, beaches, nearby towns, markets etc. Byron is a glorious part of Australia, and Richards place is a wonderful, quiet and comfortable base to enjoy it.”
“We had an amazing time in Byron Bay. Richards house is golden. Very well maintained and well equipped. Very clean. Richard was very helpful and easy to communicate with. Thank you for a wonderful time. Dominic & Alia ”
“Very spacious and comfortable place minutes from the centre of Byron. A few mins walk from Tallows beach with popular Roadhouse cafe almost next door. Very pleasant pool area also. Richard was a delight to deal with.”
“Fabulous guests. Most welcome to return anytime. Thank you Richard. ”
“ Richard was a great communicator and left the apartment extremely clean. We would recommend Richard and his guests to anyone on this site. Hopefully we can do a simultaneous exchange in the near future. Cheers Blair”
