On Our Last Getaway:
Wanting to escape the busy streets and bars of Byron Bay, we head to this beautiful holiday home just five minutes’ drive from the centre of town. Immediately the vibe changes; especially when we hear the breaking of the waves and the quiet laughter of café goers nearby.
The whole property consists of three separate properties that can be booked as a whole: the garden villa, the studio and penthouse (where we are staying). The surrounding gardens feel Bali-inspired. There are birds singing, the palm trees that offer shade to the large balcony, lizards sunning themselves on the stairs and the sound of the wind through the foilage. It’s so relaxing. Inside, it’s cosy despite the fact the villa sleeps six, and the biggest couch I have ever seen borders the living room. Upstairs the master bedroom quickly becomes my favourite room. It feels like a luxury tree house, with views across the tree tops, a huge comfy bed and a beautiful bathroom.
Before I venture out to the nearby Belongil Beach (an extension of Byron’s Main Beach) , I cool down in the private plunge pool. With wet hair and a relaxed smile, I grab a smoothie from the local café, the wonderful Treehouse on Belongil, and stroll to the beach. It’s less crowded, with inviting waves and lots of birdlife. And the best part? It’s only 100 metres back to my own private pool and personal treehouse.
What To Expect:
Byron Blisshouse is a unique getaway. It definitely doesn’t fit the mold of your typical Byron escape. Sure, it’s only a stone’s throw from Belongil Beach and it’s got impeccable style; the difference with Byron Blisshouse is that it’s actually three accommodations rolled into one very good-looking package.
First in the Blisshouse line up is the two-storey, three-bedroom penthouse. This beauty is the natural choice for groups or families look to inject their Byron Bay getaway with a hefty helping of brag-factor. The interior gives a nod to Byron’s quirky, vibrant undercurrents: an aqua-blue sofa, orange-red chairs and cushions, and plenty of eye-catching prints. Feel the pull of the sun-kissed deck and stake your claim on one of the loungers; on any given day you will alternate being lazy dips in the plunge pool, drying off in the sun (a layer SPF already applied, of course) and keeping an eye on whatever is sizzling on the barbecue grill.
The Blisshouse Garden Villa is a more compact version of its upstairs sibling. It can also sleep six, and has a kitchen, shaded patio and comfortable lounge. A separate gate entrance gives the Villa a private feel and allows travellers to come and go as they please, without bumping into guests booked into any of the other two accommodations.
For couples, the Blisshouse Studio is a haven. A recent facelift has seen it kitted out with a small kitchenette, king bedroom and a marble shower-room that is sure to turn heads. Outside, a sunny courtyard features a butter-yellow al fresco setting, barbecue and outdoor shower. The shower has its own private entrance too, appealing to loved-up duos wanting to shut themselves off from reality for a day or two.
The flexibility of Byron Blisshouse makes it a winner. No matter if you're travelling with your partner, another couple or your family; this Byron Bay getaway can be booked to suit. It's hard to imagine going past the Penthouse though, especially once you lay eyes on that deck and pool!
